♡ Skin Food Rice Mask & TONYMOLY Latte Art Cappuccino Scrub ♡


I have decided to cheat a little here and put two review items into the same blog post instead of doing two (that probably would have been very short) individual posts. And if you're not okay with that... tough tits I'm doing it this way and saving on time and effort.

Skin Food Rice Mask Wash Off

Details; a wash off mask containing rice extract that moisturises skin and brightens tone. With its texture of ground rice, it leaves skin bright, soft and lustrous.

First impression; it does look like a completely smooth mask... until you actually touched it and there is, in fact, very tiny grains in the mixture. Honestly; I was expecting a coarse, large grained mask, like a nice, thick sugar scrub I suppose, instead of this fine grained mask but... it works wonders!

At first, I believed that this was a simple 'put on, wait a couple of minutes, wash off" kind of mask, until I read the instructions properly and learn that you should really leave it on for about 10-15 minutes. Oh, also the mixture is rather thick? Not thin and watery like other face masks you get sometimes. I only use this mask twice a week... three times maximum if my skin is seriously damaged and in need of some TLC because with this particular mask, I definitely loved how soft it did leave my skin after a couple of uses.

↑↑ right consistency (not to thick, not to thin etc)
↑↑ actually make my skin feel a lot smoother / softer
↑↑ pricing range just right for the amount (Honestskin £5.24, Ebay £5.55)

↑↑ the seal to prevent any spillages is a bit of a slippery bugger and I dislike it...
↑↑ not much of a fragrance

Overall Verdict; ★★★
I like this mask. I like this mask a lot because it does have the right consistency to me and it helps with the dryness of my skin in prominent places - for example, my cheeks and temples get bone dry by the end of the day. I also like how there are tiny granules of rice in the mask because sometimes I really dislike massive lumps of whatever the item was in the first place.  This mask has definitely become a part of my beauty regime and shall be repurchased in the future for sure.

TONYMOLY Latte Art Cappuccino Cream In Scrub

Details; for both massage and scrub that effectively exfoliates dead skin cells and impurities and delivers nutrition. Heating feeling that can be felt with change of colour and removes impurities of pores.

First impression; oh god the smell... the smell is simply divine because it, l i t e r a l l y, smells like sugary, black coffee and that smell is one of my most favourite scent in the entire world, after peach and light, floral scents. Ugh, I could have been a weirdo and actually eaten the mixture given the chance... but I didn't so we're all safe there.

This scrub is a little weird one... honestly I was expecting a lot more for the price but this is a diddly 85g pot but you do get a lot out of it. I've used this scrub twice since receiving it, and using only a 5p coin size each time it has barely made a dent in the pot (for my non UK readers / friends here is the size of a 5p coin compared to our other coins; Another thing, it felt like that this scrub didn't make a difference to my skin until I had finished the rest of my beauty regime and put on my face cream, where as with the Skin Food rice mask I could feel an immediate difference to my skin if that makes sense at all?

↑↑ best scrub fragrance to date
↑↑ will last a long time despite the sizing of packaging
↑↑ cute packing design

↑↑ disappointing sizing for the price (Honestskin £6.27, Ebay £6.77)
↑↑ didn't notice a difference straight away

Overall Verdict; ★★★
I'm on the fence for now with this product. I'm kind of hoping that it'll get better when I use it more in the future or that it'll start showing a difference after a few more uses? In a way, I'm not holding my breath but I will keep using it just to see if it will make a difference to my skin or not.
So that's it! Two product reviews for the price of one blog post. Lately, I haven't had as much motivation to do anything? Has anyone been having this problem as well? Ahhh hopefully I'll get out of this funk soon enough and I'll be back to my busy, head exploding self.

Also have you joined my giveaway yet?! Ahhh I'm so estatic from the amount of support / entries so far and yet there are still a couple more weeks to go before it closes! Unfortunately though, there have been a few people that cannot seem to be bothered to read to rules properly before entering and such... so naughty people hmph! Other than that... yeah!

Thanks for reading!


  1. god the package of the tonymoly's scrub is the cutest thing ever!

  2. Great reviews~
    I love Tony Moly skincare products- they're really nice and not all that pricey~ I haven't tried anything from skinfood though, since it's more expensive >_>

  3. @Rai; agree! Most of TONYMOLY's stuff is legit... so so so cute! Cannot resist it tbh...
    @Red Sakura; but with Skin Food the difference is the amount of product you get for the pricing... plus it has more natural ingredients and less preservatives etc!

  4. Tonymoly's scrub is so cute!!!! ill just buy it and leave it there for decoration.. ^_^

    Would you like to follow each other?
    Follow me & I'll follow you back.. x

  5. I saw that cappuccino and latte thingy in the store today! It smells pretty good but idk if I want my face to smell like that, lol. I think because it's packed down maybe it's not as bad as you think since it's really jammed in there air tight? But, I also passed on it because I couldn't see it doing much for me. Glad you liked the rice one as well! I can't even believe I waited so long to try it =)

  6. Think I would buy Tony Moly scrub just for smell it all day, I'm coffeeholic xD
    Liked your review about Skinfood Rice mask, thank you, I'll add it to my wishlist.
