[TONYMOLY] Latte Art Milk-Cacao Pore Pack

I always found [TONYMOLY]'s Latte Art product line interesting, especially the face masks. But I never purchased them because one of these is a Morning Pack (I don't use face masks in the morning) and the other one is a Cream-In-Scrub/ Peeling. But a few weeks ago I saw that they added a new product to this line which I finally received some days ago: the Latte Art Milk-Cacao Pore Pack.
This face mask shall have sebum absorbtion and pore tightening effects, so it's good for oily/ combination skin with enlarged pores.

Description: Pore-tightening pact with moisturizing milk cream contained in cacao pack.
This cacao-in-cream mask containing soft milk cream within sweet cacao pack tightens pores and moisturizes the skin. The cacao pack from Ghana contains cacao oil which has an excellent sebum-absorbing function, and it removes impurities from the pores. Marshmallow extract provides excellent moisturizing effects to the skin. Keeping the skin moisturized even after washing your face. In addition, peppermint and white willow extracts remove dead skin cells and tighten pores, making the skin smooth and firm.

The content of 85g is housed in a cute, clear plastic cup with a white twist-off lid. This lid also includes a small spoon/ spatula.
Through the cup you can see the twisted milk & cacao cream which looks like the chocolate spread I eat for breakfast.
The description on the bottom of the cup is mainly written in Korean, same for the ingredient list. I just know that the main ingredients are Cacao Oil (1,5%), Marshmallow Extract, Peppermint Extract and White Willow Extract.
I  ordered the Milk-Cacao Pore Pack from South Korea and I received the product a bit messed (up). When I opened the lid the pack didn't have that nice twist-look on top anymore.
Anyway, the white milk part has a creamy consistency while the brown cacao part is rather firm.
I try to mix both parts inside the cup before applying it to my face but that's not very easy. Therefore, I take it out with the spatula and massage it over my entire face until it got a nice greyish-brown color.
I like its scent! Smells for me like a mix of chocolate and alcohol!
I leave the mask for about 10~15 minutes on my face and then wash it off with warm water. Afterwards my pores looking a bit smaller but that's just a temporarily effect again.
I will see how it works on my skin when used regularly!
How to use: After washing your face,apply our toner to prepare the skin for the next step in skin care. Mix the cacao pact and milk cream in a 1:1 ratio and apply the mixture to the entire face, avoiding the skin around eyes and mouth. Leave it on for 10~15 minutes and wash off with lukewarm water. (Use 1~2 times a week)

Price: around 13,50,- €/ US$17     
Bought at: eBay (2b-gentler)        
      
What I love: 
The cute design and scent!
         
What I don’t like: 
Nothing at the moment!       
   
Will I buy this again? No, one time is enough for me! Try out new masks again.

    1. The effect doesn't last for a long time, though. ><

  4. I have been tempted a lot by this cutie, but if you say that the pore tightening effect is just temporal... I think I will try the famous and cheaper Egg pack from the brand instead. Thank you for the review! :)

    1. Most of the products I tried out just had an temporarily effect. They didn't really reduce my pores size yet! =/
