I didn’t review Tonymoly products for some while, which means it is time for a new one today: here is the Tonymoly Mini Peach Lip Balm. Tonymoly was one of the first brands I knew when I got into Kbeauty and since then so much time has passed and I discovered so many new brands that I almost forgot about the cute products from this brand. This miniature lip balm in shape of a peach was send to me by the Korean cosmetics online store Q-depot.
The Korean brand Tonymoly is best comparable to Etude House regarding its popularity. Unlike, Etude House though, the packaging is not princessy-cute, but offers cute designs, too. Especially fruit-shaped products (apples, bananas, mango, peach…) and other creative packaging shapes make this brand interesting for western consumers and therefore very popular. Here I can refer to the term “Skincaretainment”, and you can find a nice article about this by Tracy from fanserviced_b.
The Tonymoly Mini Peach Lip Balm definitively belongs to this category. The packaging design shaped like a miniature peach is super adorable. It is very small, like a ping-pong ball, and contains only 7 g of product. The ingredients are listed on COSDNA >>here<<. The key ingredients are Shea Butter and peach extracts, which moisturize your lips. Indeed, when you open up the container the peachy scent is clearly noticeable.
The peach works as a small jar and you can take off the upper part of the peach in order to use the lip balm. The container is additionally separated by a plastic lid. Below that you will see the peach colored lip tint. It applies nicely on the lips and has transparent features, but the downside is that you have to use your fingers, which makes it somehow unhygienic. The lips feel moisturized for quite a good amount of time, too, but the scent may be too strong for some people.
The Tonymoly Mini Peach Lip Balm fulfills the tasks of a lip balm. It is moisturizing and you feel that it contains a lot of shea butter. The packaging is the main reason for many people to buy it since it is really cute and super small and travel-friendly. The strong peach scent and the fact that it comes in a jar are the downsides of this lip balm. I received the Tonymoly Mini Peach Lip Balm from Q-depot, an online retailer for Korean beauty products. They have a already quite a variety of the most popular Korean brands and they keep adding products frequently. The site is easy to navigate, too. And they offer free samples for each order and free shipping for orders above US$69. What I like especially, that they have an extra section for cruelty-free products, which contains brands like Iope, Innisfree, Etude House, etc. I didn’t see that before for most of the online stores, so that’s something really innovative and nice. Also, they are committed to contributing 3% of their group’s net profit for social causes in different countries. So you can shop for your favorite Korean products and do something good, too. You can get the Tonymoly Mini Peach Lip Balm for 9.95 US$. Q-depot is having a promotion were you can get 5 US$ coupon upon signing up. The coupon is useable for a minimum purchase of 69 US$.
