The Chok Chok Green Tea Watery Mask Sheet by Tonymoly

This sheet mask makes me bummed that I’m quitting sheet masks.

A spoiler, I guess. Sometimes I have to put nice things on my face, okay? I can’t just squirt lemon juice and baking soda all over my skin and then go sit in the sun every day.
(Don’t do that. Get off Pinterest. Your skin thanks you.)

Image of the front of Tonymoly's The Chok Chok Green Tea watery mask sheet (sheet mask). It's pretty minimalist and touts that it contains 100% pure green tea ferment extract.

My friend in South Korea sent me that good Tonymoly shit! And it’s good. So good that I’m letting the weird little blurb about tea being cultivated throughout four seasons slide (kind of). Tea plants don’t like winter.

I, too, thought that I would tone down the science snark when I left my research job. It turns out that it just means that I have more energy at home to look into random plant biology.

And the back of the packaging. It's mostly in korean, aside from the ingredients list and instructions. Nothing interesting in English.

I, uh, still don’t read Korean. Who knows what claims they’re making on the packaging. Let’s rip this bad boy open.

It smells so good. I want my entire skincare routine to smell like this product. The scent is all of the nice parts of green tea without the bitterness. Maybe a little lemon, too. I want to cover my body in it.

An unflattering picture of me wearing the sheet mask. I've got my giant weekend septum ring in.

The mask material is solid. It’s one of the thick ones that feel like cloth. Maybe it is? It’s not one of the ones that are super flimsy and dry immediately. You can hang out with this one for a while.

My face felt moisturized after using this mask, but wasn’t greasy or sticky. I’m into it. My friend is an angel and sent me multiples, so I can confirm that nothing bad happens with repeated use. It’s straight up nice.

I’m also quitting sheet masks. They create more waste than I’m comfortable with. I don’t need a foil packet and a cloth/paper face cover for half an hour of use. I don’t believe that they’re any more effective than a traditional mask or lotion, so I’ll be switching over to those.

I was hoping that I could just transfer my love of this product over to the rest of Tonymoly’s green tea line, but after a quick glance it looks like everything contains microplastics. Boo.

I’ll be scouring the internet for a green tea mask that smells similarly. Do you have any suggestions?

Tonymoly Egg Pore Nose Pack

Tonymoly Egg Pore Nose Pack Packaging. There's an egg on it, of course. The yolk says "FOR PORE".

I bought this for two reasons: the packaging was cute and I LOVE peeling things. It’s egg themed! How cute! So much fun! I wonder what it does– Oh.
Picture of me wearing Tonymoly egg pore nose strip.

It’s a Biore strip. It’s a Biore strip that’s not perforated to fit into your nose corners as well, which is the best place to pull things out of your pores. I am not a cute egg in this picture. I am a disappointed egg. The egg packaging is because the ingredients contains eggs. Sorry, vegans.

These are also double the price of Biore strips and don’t work any better for me than those, so I also feel sorry for me.

Verdict:

Experience: 5/10 for cute packaging and because it does at least peel. It’s not as sticky as I’d like. You’re missing the grossatisfying image of what I pulled out of my nose because this latest one got basically nothing.
Post-strip skinfeel: 5/10. Some of the glue sticks to your nose, making you wash your face a second time. My pores look and feel exactly the same as they did prior to the strip. It doesn’t smell bad, at least?

Overall: 5/10. It’s an expensive Biore strip.
