Sample Stash - Tony Moly I'm Real Lemon Brightening Lotion

by - November 01, 2014

I was planning to do another makeup tutorial but I couldn't stop watching Arrow, so what I have here instead is a very quick and short Sample Stash post.

Let's check out Tony Moly I'm Real Lemon Brightening Lotion.

At first, I got confused because I thought it's a body lotion.  But when I researched about the product online, the instruction said "apply this after toner".  So obviously, it's a face lotion or simply, a moisturizer.  

There's a label that says "3-Step System" and this one's marked as no. 2.  No. 1 is the Rice Smooth Toner and no. 3 is the Avocado Rich Cream.

Three steps for smoother, brighter and clearer skin.

Here's how the full-size version looks like.

200 ml

Locally, it costs 548 php.  

Quick FYI, lemon is known to be a very good skin brightener because it contains a lot of citric acid. 

This product by Tony Moly has 14 mg of lemon water and 75% of other natural ingredients.  #goodstuff

The consistency is not thick unlike regular lotions or moisturizers.  It's a bit watery and it spreads out easily.  

It smells like lemon, of course.  Very citrusy like a lemonade though it doesn't last long.  

No stickiness or greasiness whatsoever.  As you massage it on your skin, it dries fast and it will feel like you didn't apply anything.  Very lightweight.  

I don't think it moisturizes the skin well.  The softness and smoothness will be there for a sec and then poof, gone.  

As for the brightening effect, I believe you need to use this product at least a month or more to notice the result.  I trust it to work a bit because of... you know... the lemon?  HAHA!  Perhaps, it will take time though.
