Review: TonyMoly Egg Pore Blackhead Out Oil Gel

3:48 PM



Product Description and Claims:

(from urban outfitters)
Get brighter, cleaner skin with this magical gel, formulated to sweep away dead skin and purify pores, reducing the appearance of blackheads. Camellia flower extract soothes skin, while botanic nutrients protect for a double dose of goodness!

(from Amazon)
  • Contains Egg elements and Magic capsules which remove dead skin and sebum.
  • The oil gel purifies whitehead, blackhead, excess sebum and dirt in pores.
  • Pore trouble care solution helps to purify the skin, manages dead skin cells, provides nutrition, and protects skin from further damage.
  • Improves various troubles and makes skin look bright and clean


This product is supposed to help you get rid of your blackheads and also reduce the appearance of your pores. It should also remove the sebum and dirt in your pores, providing your skin with a gentle exfoliation.

INGREDIENTS AND COSDNA ANALYSIS HERE (not my analysis)

Packaging:







The packaging is a very cute, egg shaped container. I heard you could turn it into a flower pot once you finish with the product!! Super duper adorable, probably the main reason why I purchased this product.













There really isn't that much product. The egg looks pretty big, but only about 1/4 of it actually carries the product. The rest of it is just the lid LOL. It's also a really a unhygienic packaging (no spatula with it) and the yellow lid covering the product is so messy to work with!! The product gets all over the place when I open and close this thing.













Formulation and Consistency:
Just as the name of this product states, this is a gel-type exfoliator. It has a heavy gel consistency, with little orange exfoliating beads.

Application and Performance:

Once you rub it into the skin, the product reacts with the sebum sitting on your pores, and turns from  transparent  into a milky white gel. The beads are gentle so they won't irritate the skin or damage it, but I do think they are rough enough to get rid of a few dead skin cells.

However, I do not really see a change when it comes to the actual blackheads. I've used this product many times, and all it did was temporarily enlighten my blackheads, and even so it was barely noticeable. Quite disappointing.

Scent:
This product has a STRONG sweet lemon scent to it. At first it was really pleasant, but now it is just too overwhelming, as I kind of got sick of it, making me hesitant to use this product.

Pros:
-Cute packaging
-Gently exfoliates
-Affordable

Cons:
-Doesn't get rid of blackheads
-Super messy packaging
-Nice scent at first but i'm really sick of it
-Barely noticeable pore shrinking

Conclusion:
Recommend? No, I don't. Repurchase? No, I won't. Regret? Not really, since it did do SOMETHING, not a lot though. 

SCORE
4.5/10

  1. I thought about picking that up, but now I'm glad I didn't. To me it screamed more nose mask than exfoliator. That, and the texture kinda freaks me out, haha. Try the B-Salic 2.0 from Wishtrend. It kicks blackhead butt, especially on the nose.

  5. That sucks. I think topical products in general do not have the power to extract blackheads. I need manual force or an extractor to actually make them come out of my skin. Maybe it helps in blackhead prevention at least?

  10. This product sounded so promising but its a pity it didnt work in the end :-( I feel like nothing helps against blackheads besides the pore strips T_T I really dislike strong scents in skincare products too! I heard the skinfood black sugar scrub exfoliates well!

  11. Thanks for making this review! I think the only stuff that actually pulls out blackheads are the Biore pore strips but after all of your blackheads are removed you should discontinue the usage!
