Korean skin care products are said to be the best in the world and I have been using the Tony Moly Lemon Seed Massage Cream and Green Tea Extract Massage Cream as part of my skin care routine for months now and so far so good. It didn't come as a surprise to me that this product works quite effectively.
Introducing the Tony Moly Egg Pore Tightening Pack. This product claims to effectively purify pores by clearing out blackheads and skin impurities.

I've used quite a few face masks sold in the market that claims to minimize pores and remove redness and so far I haven't found anything worth the hype or review but this Egg Pore Tightening Pack is quite something. Perhaps the most noticeable difference of this mask from other face mask is it's consistency from the bottle and when it dries up. It is not as thick as other clay masks nor does it dry up quickly. It dries smooth on the skin and it's not too tight either. I find that other masks dry up too tightly around the skin that it feels like the circulation is cut off but this mask doesn't do this at all. It sits comfortably on the skin and it does have a slight cooling effect on the skin while drying but it doesn't sting. Since it does not dry off quickly nor too tightly and does not have any strong scent and acid content, it is great for sensitive and irritated skin types. According to the diagram on the packaging, you should apply it around your nose and cheeks but I see no harm in applying it all over the face or any part of your face that has excessive redness, large pores and even acne.
It does not only tighten the skin and minimize the pores but it also diminishes redness and makes the skin appear glowy, supple and youthful as per the effects of it's main ingredient, the egg. It also controls oil so it is also great oily skin. Combination to dry skin types should not worry since this mask is not overly drying like other masks so you are perfectly okay.
I guess I am ready to say that this product is eligible be part of my regular skin care routine as well as be one of my HG (holy grail) products when it comes to pore minimization. Always remember though, that even if this product is highly recommended by me and other bloggers out there, we are all unique and what works for me and for others may not work for you. However, this product is worth a try!
