Who wouldn't want this on your dressing table? Besides being hard to travel with, the packaging is great.. it's so cute! It's a screw-on lid and it's basically a tub inside a gorgeous apple-shaped ball. Some people might be bothered with the unsanitary nature of a tub, but it comes with a spatula for those concerned :)
The formula is very unique - it's like a gel texture with a slight gooey-ness of honey, but once you put it on it feels almost like a silicone-based primer. For this reason, I quite like using it under my make-up. I feel like my foundation has something to cling on to!
When I read some reviews, many said this product was too oily - I found it the opposite! I found it didn't hydrate too much, so instead of using it in the evenings, as I said above, I used it under my make-up during the day. Although I have combination skin, I found that this product didn't make my skin oilier nor drier - in fact, I'd say it lacked a tad bit of hydration for my liking to call it a moisturiser.
Instead, I'd say it was a fantastic primer to put over your usual moisturiser! This is because I find it really smooths out my skin, and lets foundation glide on beautifully. It sinks in very quickly when you rub it into your skin, and gives you a silky finish which reminds me almost of the Laura Mercier primers.
Another property is to increase elasticity to your skin. I'm not so sure about this! I think it's really good as a primer so that's how I use it! I would recommend it as an alternative to those who don't like that thick silicone-feel but don't want anything too moisturising and liquidy!
Needless to say - a very unique product. Perhaps not what it says on the tin, but I've really been enjoying it!
Google-ing some reviews though, it seems that the sister - the Tony Moly Appletox Smooth Massaging Peel Cream is also a winner product - an exfoliating wash-off mask with AHA which is also stocked in KC Beautique.. intriguing!
The Tony Moly Red Appletox is available from KC Beautique for £10.. currently on sale for £8!
