Before I review Tony Moly Peach Punch Sherbet Cleansing Balm ($26.50) we should probably get the real elephant in the room out of the way. Since most of us, myself included, has an inner teenage boy, you’re likely thinking, “That looks like a breast!”
There, I said it. You’re find to have a good giggle there. However, if your mind went to Timothée Chalamet doing strange and unusual things with a peach, well, I can’t help you with that.
Now for that review….! If we can get passed all the breast and peach references that is.
Tony Moly Peach Punch Sherbet Cleansing Balm is Korean but arrives in a peach-shaped container that is very reminiscent of packaging that the Japanese use for hand creams. On that note I will say there are many Korean brands, Tony Moly included, that do have a good deal of fruit-shaped skincare products. I guess it’s somehow cute and appealing to purchase skincare shaped like a breast, I mean peach! In all honesty, I have many fruit-shaped makeup, skincare, and beauty products. Testimony that I do so like my kawaii beauty purchases.
Anyway, the bad news is this container holy holds 2.82 oz of cleansing balm and will set you back a whooping $26.50 when you can in fact get many cheaper options which hold more product. I mean, for example you can get Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm for $29.50 and it has 3.8 oz of product plus it’s mineral oil-free where as Tony Moly’s Peach Punch Sherbet Cleansing Balm does have mineral oil. I don’t mind mineral oil myself, but I do know some prefer to keep away from it.
Aside from the smaller size though this is wonderful stuff. It’s a solid balm that contains a host of hydrating oils with a Macadamia and Grape Seed Oil as well as fresh peach fruit water that gives it a true peachy scent.
If you’ve never used a cleansing balm before you simply apply it all over your dry face and it’ll break down into an oil. After simply add a little water to emulsify it, it’ll turn milky, and than you can rinse it off. It removes makeup easily, doesn’t sting eyes or leave them cloudy, and it doesn’t leave my skin tight or dry after use.
I particularly liked the way this broke down into a thinner oil as I massaged it into my skin!
Would I buy it again? Absolutely! It makes a rather nice companion to the Tony Moly Peach Cleansing Water and it does a fine job cleansing my makeup off at the end of the day! Yes, there are cheaper cleansing balms out there but considering how much I like the formula I’d totally re-purchase this!
