Tony Moly Appletox Smooth Massage Peeling Cream

Totally looks like apple, don’t you think? Complete with the stem and instructions (in hangu) as leaf. This really shows that not all fruit shaped cosmetics are alike... some brands, like Tony Moly, pays little more attention to details and shape!

I am not so sure when did the fruit shaped packaging craze started, nowadays, you cant escape them if you purchase Korean cosmetics. Tony Moly, is Korean and its shop is full of uniquely packaged stuff- like this apple. This one totally deserve its own ‘do not eat’ warning on it...
Enough about the package, lets see the product!

The English website promises :
Multi-functional cream that effectively removes Keratin and double up as a massage cream with a nourishing pack function. Containing Green Apple extract, AHA and Papaya extract, this Appletox pack provides excellent exfoliation of dead skin cells and aged Keratin. Skin is kept smooth and radiant.
Just slap this product on your clean face, then continue with gentle massaging to peel off the dead skin and dirt. With smell as fresh as crisp apple, who wouldn’t want to use this?
Even though it looks creamy and smooth in this picture... it is not. The white cream is little rough, filled with fine grains of scrbbies thats easy to work with. Just don’t use this everyday...1-2 times a week would suffice. Lithe warning, those with sensitive skin might want to massage really softly here.
After a while, it would turn a little hard and you can see the white cream would turn slightly greyish/mixed with dirt & dead skin. Rinse up with water , et voila! Cleaner, clearer skin! Just to make sure no product left on my face, I followed up with my regular cleanser and then slap on my favourite moisturizer.
I couldn’t be happier after scrubbing my face...
In summary...
Packaging: just like apple!
Texture: white creamy with fine scrubbies only felt when rubbed with fingers
Is it worth it?
Yes if ... you want effective scrubbing cream without needing to scrub really hard, you want clearer skin pronto
No if... you  have sensitive skin, you cant stand fragranced product, you don’t want to bother looking for the product via internet
