Skin care review : tony moly ice queen multi play cream SPF 30 PA++

I fell in love with this product at the first sight! i mean, look at this
how could you not fall for it?
i fell in love with the packaging. i would even buy it straughtaway without knowing what it is. hehe.. but of course, to get reason to buy, i looked for the reviews of this product. well, all the reviews i read were good, nothing bad, so there is no reason for me not to buy it. I put this on the list to buy on one of trusted seller. Before i made a purchase, lucky me, one of my truseted seller, iheartkoreanbeauty emailed me and offered me this as a free gift. as a new vip member, i could choose my free gift, and this is one of the list i could choose!!! wow... so yes, i got it for free!!! lucky me.

what is this product anyway? well, in the packaging it's all korean. But i got this information from the net;

Product information:
This multi-functional cream absorbs into the skin as it melts away like ice cream with the topping of firm and soft marshmallow. You can have moisturizing, sun protection, and makeup base effects all at the same time, with additional skin soothing and firming effects.

How to use:
Apply this cream before foundation with finger from center to edge of the face lightly.

and this is another information from
  Multi-functional sun block in an uber cute container. Containing Marshmallow extract and Houttuynia Cordata extract that works to keep the skin constantly hydrated and nourished as it effectively protects the skin against harmful UV rays. 

After the last stage of your skin care regime, apply an appropriate amount and spread gently and evenly on areas of sun exposure.
For external use only. Do not apply to areas of the skin where sores, Eczema or dermatitis occur. Do not swallow and avoid contact with eyes or on skin which is sensitive to bandages or pad cloth. Discontinue usage and consult a dermatologist if signs of skin irritation and/or rash appear. Keep out of reach to children and store product away from direct sun exposure.

so basically they called it multi play cream is because this cream could be your moisturiser, primer, sun protection (SPF 30), not to mention how cute this packaging to sit on your make up table. hehe. well, this is attract my little daughter soo much, she kept asking for it to play, so i thought when i finish this product i will give the packaging for her to play with.

i decided to try this for an extra moisturizer because lately my skin getting soo dry with some patches or dry flakes on my fore head and upper cheek area. it's bothering me, as it's hard now to put any bb cream or face powder without making it cakey and flaky..

so when i first opened this.. oh my... it smells soooo yummy delicious!!!! it smells just like a good vanilla ice cream.. seriously!!!
  there is another cap inside.
look at that! even the texture looks yummy. hehe.. yup, the testure is just like whipped cream.
on my hand:
 look how thick it is. yup, the texture is very thick cream.

my experience with tony moly ice queen multi play cream :
As i told you before, my skin is getting dry recently. there was this one day i came home with my face all dry and flaky. so i told my self, ok let's fix this. let's not clean my face with face soap or water, instead just clean it with cleansing milk/lotion type then moisturised with this tony molu cream. So i cleaned my face with my innisfree cleansing lotion, then followed with this tony moly cream, it worked!!! i'm impressed!!

the next day, i used this one in the morning, as a primed before i put bb cream. again, i'm impressed! it kept my face moisturised all day, and not just that. it gave me this glowing skin. and it's not the bb cream because everyday i use bb cream without this, and once i put this on as primer, somehow there was this extra glow on my face. i kept checking on the mirror to see my face. lol. it gave me this fresh looks, a little bit whiter but not the fake-white-look, but natural brighter look. i didn't put any powder that day because i felt good enough.

and then today, i just put this cream in the morning, without bb cream or powder, just this one after toner, because i'm staying home today. and what happened is that my nose area is oily after some hours. so i think if you have oily skin you should put a good bbcream/ powder/compact with matte effect or good sebum control. 

so, for me, this is what i think about this product :
  • cute packaging, but it comes in jar without spatula. 
  • nice, yummy and delicious scent. for me, it's a point plus and i love it. but for those who don't like that kind of scent on their skin care,  it's not for them.
  • it's a good moisturiser and primer for dry skin, but no for oily skin i think.
  • it works good on me as a primer, it gave me this glowing and bright skin. but i don't know for summer, it could be to heavy.

And now, i really think this cream is really good moisturiser and this is what i need at this time. so i have a question for all beauty blogger out there. can i use this at night as a night cream? because there is SPF 30 there, so i think it's not for night cream. but it's a moisturiser cream, and i think i will keep my face moisturised all night. but i'm not sure. i really want to use it at night too. so what do you think? can i use this as a night cream or no?
