If you know me at all, you know that I love coffee. I usually drink one or two pots a day, and while I favor darker roasts, I’m not cool enough to drink it black – I like to dress up my lattes with flavored syrups, whipped cream, and sprinkles, both for the taste and also because it ends up looking really cute!
So it’s probably no surprise at all that, when I first discovered that Tony Moly’s Latte Art line was a thing, I immediately decided to try at least SOME of the products. After all, they’re not only based on delicious cafe beverages, some of them are even packaged to look like hot drinks!
Thus far I’ve had the pleasure of trying two products from Tony Moly’s Latte Art line: the Milk Tea primer (which I looove and will write a review about soon) and this Milk-Cacao Pore Pack. I really enjoy both products to the point that I’ve been recommending them to people online, but recently I was telling some people on Reddit about how cute and effective the mask is in particular. I honestly think that this mask is a perfect gift idea for anyone who likes cute cosmetics and coffee, so I figured that I should make a review of it to help anyone who was interested in snagging this item during their holiday shopping – whether it’s as a gift or just for yourself!
See, how cute is that?! It’s in the shape of a tiny mug of coffee and cream. The dark, “coffee” color is the deep-cleaning part, and the milky cream color is the moisturizing component. You’re meant to mix them together in whatever ration that you like – as you can see, I’ve mixed about a third of this container so far.
This might sound a little fussy, but it’s actually very easy because the little “stirring spoon” that you see sitting on top of the mug is actually your spatula slash mixing spoon!
As you see here, the lid has a little groove where your spatula can click into place, so it’s very easy to store. I’ve dropped and knocked over my mug and the spatula stayed in place, so it’s a relief for klutz-o-trons like myself! It’s for this reason and the sheer cuteness factor that I’m willing to give this product a pass about the jar packaging. Since the product rinses off so easily (more on that later), washing off the spatula when you’re done is a snap, and you don’t have to worry about storage… for jar packaging, this is about as good as it’s gonna get, I think.
