Good morning all! I am sore and stiff and my hips are hating me. I'm pretty happy that I don't have ANY plans today and I can lounge with my family. How's your Saturday morning going? I am going to be sharing polish with you later today or tomorrow (I'm finally almost caught up on all my drafts so I can delve into the pile of Fall polish I have that's growing and growing) but for now I want to share some adorable Tony Moly products with you! Tony Moly literally has the cutest packaging I have ever seen and I will buy it even if I don't plan to use it. I can't resist! I first heard of Tony Moly because of their awesome Galaxy nail polish collection a few years back. After that I started to notice that they made skin care and makeup products too. Ooooh excited! But they were hard to find and only from overseas as they are a Korean brand. Rewind to the summer of 2013 when I was in Oahu for the first time in over 15 years. HELLO there's a Tony Moly store there! I met up with one of my nail polish friends and we did some serious damage! I think about that shop all the time so I was a happy camper when I got to go back this past July. And hello, what's this adorable little banana lip balm? I had to have it! When I returned to California I wished I'd bought more so I did a quick search on Amazon and thankfully Tony Moly is pretty much fully stocked there now so I got more! #addictedtocuteproducts So the jist of my story is this: Tony Moly is fairly easy to find now! It's in Urban Outfitters, Sephora and Amazon! There are a handful of stores across the US too! Rejoice and go forth to buy all the adorable Korean makeup! Now let's go bananas.
*purchased by me*
Let's go bananas. When I got to the shop it wasn't even open yet. I had to wait around for about 10 minutes then I had literally 15 minutes before we had to rush off to the airport to jump on a plane and head home. I was pretty pressed for time to shop. I missed a lot but I did snag enough to keep me content until next time. Look at the cute packages! They even have the little grocery stickers that bananas have in the stores! GAH!
Out of their little boxes, the Banana Hand Milk and Lip Balm are even more adorable.
Let's start with the Banana Lip Balm. Cutest, smallest banana ever! It comes with string loop so you can attach it to your cell phone or key chain. The cap twists off to reveal a plastic, angled applicator. The bottom portion of the container is a squeezy tube. The balm itself squeezes out easily.
The balm is a nice consistency, on the thick side but not tacky at all. It smoothed on to my lips easily and evenly. Banana Lip Balm is lightly banana scented but not flavored. I tried to get a picture of it on my lips but they came out blurry and blah. My lips were semi-glossy but not with that slick wet-look. The balm lasted a good while too, through eating and drinks. I like it so much I already bought a backup.
And now the Banana Hand Milk. I passed up on this in the Tony Moly store because I reasoned with myself that I have so much lotion I didn't need more. Regrets. So Amazon to the rescue and I had Banana Hand Milk within 2 days of returning home. The Banana Hand Milk has a twist off top to reveal a small tube that dispenses lotion. The bottom part of the lotion container is soft and you squeeze it to get the lotion out.
The container squeezed fairly easily. The actual lotion is a medium thickness consistency.
The lotion rubbed in nicely and absorbed quickly. Banana Hand Milk is lightly banana scented. It doesn't last for an extended period of time, but I found it pleasant while I could smell it.
You can see how well Banana Hand Milk moisturized my hand in the spot that I rubbed it in. The rest of my hand is so dry and mad that I didn't put the lotion all over.
