Quick Thoughts Tony Moly Strawberry Mushroom Scrub 


I love mushrooms. In... a lot of ways really. I'll just keep it that simple. Anyway when this product line came out I figured I would get them, begrudgingly find a way to use up the contents... and move along. To my surprise I found I really really liked all three options. But hey this post is about the sugar scrub.

So what is it? 

Tony Moly Strawberry Mushroom Scrub 
I just had to include how cute the top of the jar looks.
Attention to detail counts man. 
 "MAGIC FOOD STRAWBERRY MUSHROOM SUGAR SCRUB contains strawberry seeds and sugar to effectively remove dead skin cells and dirt while leaving your face clean and moist. Texture is similar to a strawberry smoothie and smells just like it too! "-Tony Moly 
Well I have to say that while this is one of the smoothest sugar scrubs around I would send back a strawberry smoothie with this exact texture. Still it's a very fine texture. This makes it gentle. I still probably wouldn't use it daily. This is a treatment product not a cleanser OK guys?

So it's cute and all but what's in it? 

Ingridients: Glycerin, Sucrose, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Butylene Glycol, Glycereth-26, Fragaria Chiloensis (Strawberry) Fruit Extract, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Glyceryl Stearate, PEG-100 Stearate Fragaria Vesca (Strawberry) Seed, Phenoxyethanol, Corthellus Shiitake (Mushroom) Extract, Inonotus Obliquus (Mushroom) Extract, Tricholoma Matsutake Extract, Water, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Ethylhexylglycerin, Fragrance Caramel, Buteth-3, 1,2-Hexanediol, Sodium Benzotriazolyl Butylphenol Sulfonate, Tributyl Citrate, CI 17200.

How do I use it?

Tony Moly Strawberry Mushroom Scrub 
"How to use: Apply an adequate amount of the scrub onto dry face and massage gently. For mild scrubbing, apply onto wet/moist skin"-Tonymoly
 Yeah that pretty much sums it up. I took a picure of how it looks on a spatula. It looks more like jam than a smoothie to me. It smells delicious. It does not taste that way. The Tony Moly Strawberry Mushroom Sugar scrub does not smell at all like mushrooms.

I also actually prefer to apply this to a damp face. I think it works just as well and feels a little more gentle. I also leave it on for a bit... maybe 10-15 minutes to make it more like a treatment than a straight scrub. I mean I don't want to instantly rinse off all the good stuff that's in it!

How did it go?

I LOVE the Tony Moly Strawberry Mushroom Scrub! Seriously. I had no idea I would enjoy it this much. I wish I could love everything in a cool jar this much. Or make everything come in a jar shaped like a mushroom... It smells good, it makes my face soft... It isn't too harsh... It's in a mushroom and it contains mushrooms. How could it improve? More varieties? Make it free? I really don't know. I think it's great man. I can't belive this is the same company that make's the I'm Real masks. 

By the way... New masks have come out in the I'm real line and since it is the ONLY line I've committed to reviewing fully... I'll be checking them out. 

Final score?

Ok if you are shocked... especially after some of my other Tony Moly rants then don't worry you aren't alone. This actually gets a 5/5 from me. My biggest complaint? I don't really like pink that much. Come on guys make a berry version so I can have another cute mushroom on display. I plan to do a comparison to the Skinfood Strawberry Black Sugar Wash off pack that I have used in the past and know is very popular. YMMV but for me this one stays. 

Rating scale

1- I want both my money and the time I spent using this product back. It should never be used and if I encounter another in my collection it goes to the trash bin.2- The product is nothing special but not horrible. I would use it again or give it away if I got it as a free sample.
3-The product is nice enough but I would not repurchase because I have many better options. May be better suited for others
4-I really like this and would likely repurchase if I do not find something better.
5-I love this product and it has become a staple in my collection.
So now you know what the numbers mean!

I probably use Instagram the most also CanIPutItOnMyFace… that’s funny to me because I had to be convinced to even download the application and then spend three years not using it. What can I say? I’ve turned into a sheet mask exhibitionist…
