Product Review: Tony Moly I'm Real Coconut Face Mask Sheet

If you've been around the blog for awhile, then you know that I'm a fan of sheet masks. I'm not totally convinced that they offer a ton of benefits, but I think they're great for hydration.

Product Review: Tony Moly I'm Real Coconut Face Mask Sheet - these masks are a quick, inexpensive way to give your face a boost of hydration!

One of my favorite sheet masks so far has been Tony Moly Snail Hydro-Gel Face Mask Sheet (you can read my review here), so I wanted to try one of the less expensive masks from that line to see how I liked it. I love the scent of coconut, so I picked the Tony Moly I'm Real Coconut Face Mask Sheet.

I have to tell you up front - I bought mine several months ago online at Sephora and paid $7.50 for 2 in a pack. But when I tried to find links for this post, I saw that the Coconut version is no longer available from the US store - only the Canadian store. I searched for it other places as well, but it's impossible to find - it's not even on the Tony Moly website. So I feel a little weird reviewing a product that is so difficult to currently find in the US. I do know that Ulta carries the I'm Real masks individually (I saw them in my local store), but I didn't notice whether or not they had Coconut. There are several other versions - like Tea Tree, Tomato, Lemon, Rice, Makgeolli, Seaweed, Aloe, Broccoli, Avocado, Orange, Pomegranate, and Red Wine. If you can't find the Coconut, you'll probably be able to find one or more of the others.

The Coconut sheet mask is specifically for hydration. It is a cloth sheet, so it's a bit sloppy wet right out of the package, but I didn't have too much trouble with it once it was applied. There is a bit of fragrance in it, but it's the last ingredient, and I didn't have any issues with my sensitive skin. It smells really good if you're a fan of coconut!

Here's a list of the ingredients:
- Coconut Extract: has anti-bacterial properties and helps detoxify skin
- Sweet Almond Extract: protects skin from drying out, keeps it smooth and supple
- Glycerin: supports natural skin cell maturation
- Allantoin: soothes and protects skin

Water, Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, Mineral Oil, Dimethicone, Polysorbate 80, Sorbitan Sesquioleate, Xanthan Gum, Carbomer, Tromethamine, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Fruit Extract, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Fruit Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Allantoin, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, 1,2-Hexanediol, Propanediol, Caprylyl Glycol, Illicium Verum (Anise) Fruit Extract, Chlorphenesin, Phenoxyethanol, Disodium EDTA, Fragrance.

Tony Moly I'm Real Coconut Face Mask Sheet - this mask does contain fragrance as the last ingredient, but I didn't have any issues with irritation, even with my super-sensitive skin.

Like most sheet masks, it comes folded inside the package, and it's pretty saturated with the serum. It's easy to unfold, and as you can see in the second photo below, there are generous eye and mouth openings - which is my biggest complaint with most sheet masks.

Tony Moly I'm Real Coconut Face Mask Sheet - the mask is easy to unfold and apply to your face. My one complaint is the same complaint I have with almost every other sheet mask - the eye and mouth openings are entirely too large!

As you can see below, the fit isn't great. The area under my eyes and around my mouth - the spots that have fine lines that could use some plumping - aren't even covered by the mask. I find that I get the best results (ie. lines plumped, wrinkles smoothed) with gel masks that adhere well to the skin (like with the Tony Moly Snail Hydro-Gel Face Mask Sheet. And can I just say that I hope you guys appreciate these pictures because I look like a big goober in them!

Tony Moly I'm Real Coconut Face Mask Sheet - as you can see, some of the areas I would most like to treat (under my eyes and around my mouth), aren't covered by the mask because the openings are too large.

I didn't really notice a change in the way my skin looked after using this mask, but it felt hydrated, and softer and smoother. And there's just something relaxing about lying down with a mask on your face. For $3.75, it's a great way to kick back and relax for 20-30 minutes and give your face a little boost of hydration.
