TonyMoly Red Appletox Honey Cream 6

I recently got TonyMoly Red Appletox Honey Cream in me Tonymoly Memebox. It was a product I’ve wanted to try for a long time but for some reason I just never purchased it! So I was delighted when it arrived in my Memebox!

Yes, one of the reasons I wanted it was because it was shaped like an apple. Sue me, I love cute beauty 😀

But it’s actually a fantastic facial moisturizer too!

TonyMoly Red Appletox Honey Cream comes housed in a cute little apple shaped container. I so have a thing for fruit shaped skincare and makeup! This does come with a tiny spatula so you don’t have to touch the cream but as cute as the packaging is it likely won’t keep the ingredients very stable unfortunately! But none the less I love this stuff.

I’ve been using this as my daily moisturizer for a few months now and I adore it. This is a thick, gel cream that has a slightly tacky sticky feel which sets to a smooth, soft finish on my drier skin. It smells like a crunchy apple that I just bit into! The fragrance is positively delicious! It’s not a fake, plastic apple fragrance. It really does smell like a true crunchy, juicy sweet apple. Although be warned, if you’re sensitive the fragrance is fairly strong and might not agree with you!

As I mentioned about this is pretty thick but it absorbs fairly easily. It has a bouncy kinda texture like jello that feels a bit sticky initially but it sets to a smooth, soft surface on my skin. It kinda makes my skin feel plush and really super soft and smooth.

Apparently it contains manuka honey extract that’s excellent for smooth, nourishing drier skin and it even proves great for acne prone skin. It also has royal jelly extract and black honey! It’s quite moisturizing and leaves my skin refreshed and smooth allowing my makeup to apply more easily and flawlessly.

All in all it’s a very nice daily moisturizer that provides plenty of hydration to my drier skin! Better still it gives my skin a perfect natural, freshly washed look so I can easily apply it with a little concealer, mascara, and blush and it’s a perfect natural face look I get from it as it perks up my lackluster drier skin and gives it a plush, fresh look!

Loves it!

You can get it now from seller F2Plus1.

I really like it. It’s a nice basic daily moisturizer and great for drier skin types who need a little pick me up when their skin is looking dull!

    Yay! You tried the Appletox its wonderful! I’m sensitive to too much exfoliation and it is an AHA moisturizer so I use it sparingly but my skin loves this stuff.

    • Gillie

      AHA is my only complaint about this, too. I can only use it once or twice a week without having a reaction, but I still love it!

  • Sacre

    I love this too. Only cream I was sad to finish til its last drop! I will surely repurchase it.

    Hey Muse! Have you seen the new Tony Moly Wonder Honey Cream? What do you know about it yet? No one has reviewed it yet and I’m really curious but I’m too conservative to take the plunge without knowing whether or not it is appropriate for use on faces! (TIA!!)

    • Isabella Muse

      I haven’t. Hearing good things about it though. It looks a lot like Appletox! If I try it I’ll def review 🙂

    I think I’m the only person on earth who has tried this and not cared for it 🙁 . It never fully absorbed into my face. In fact, it was so bad (sticky) that I had to literally get out of bed after about 2 hours and use a washcloth to remove it. I have combo, mature skin and I live in a primary snow belt in the U.S., so my face does scream for a great moisturizer. This one just wasn’t it for me.

    On another note, I wound up using it as a foot mask (plastic baggie booties and all). Except for taking care not to break a hip while rinsing it off, I’m happy to say that it was successfully repurposed!
