Review: Tony Moly I’m Real Sheet Mask: Red Wine

You have to hand it to K-beauty, they really know how to come up with the most random ingredients to put into products! Like this Tony Moly I’m Real Sheet Mask in Red Wine, which apparently is supposed to help refine pores.
This is what it looks like:

And this is what the back of the pack looks like, with the ingredients and some pictures showing you how to use it:

So at this point I was wondering whether, inside, the sheet mask was going to be drenched in red wine (because I’m literal, apparently) but they hadn’t soaked a sheet in actual red wine, it was the usual white papery stuff that all sheet masks ever are made of (except for those ones that are more like jelly). I was a little disappointed, and part of me was wondering how much actual red wine it could have if it wasn’t even a little pink:

I didn’t expect this color.

Maybe the ingredients in K-beauty are like totem ingredients. You know… “This is red wine sheet mask… it will refine your pores, like red wine!!” rather than actually having those ingredients in. I guess we do that with western beauty too — I know for a fact that 70% of the Herbal Essences shampoos don’t actually contain herbs any more. This makes me sad. 😦
Anyway, I decided not to think much on what was in this face mask, I bunged it on my face and ignored it for 20-30 minutes, just like the packet told me to:

I am wearing a piece of paper soaked in cold stuff. If I smile, the piece above my lip hits my teeth. That made it really hard not to giggle while taking this picture.

I was trying so hard to be serious and not giggle that this just popped out:

Literally couldn’t help myself.

When I took it off, my face looked… pretty much how it did before I put it on:

No visible difference. My skin felt really smooth, though.

I have another one to try out, too, so while this red wine one wasn’t for me, I’m looking forward to trying this rice one:

Red wine and rice flavor masks. I haven’t tried putting them in my mouth to establish if they actually taste like these things.

    1. I totally should have done! I threw it away after I used it (I should have kept it… they’re so drenched in gloop that I probably could have put it back in its packet, in the fridge, and used it again). I’ll taste the next one for comparison 😀
