Review: Tonymoly » Appletox Smooth Massage Peeling Cream

Tonymoly's Appletox Smooth Massage Peeling Cream is one that I truly recommend. Now, in case you don't know what a peeling cream is, it is a skincare product that exfoliates your skin by gently removing dead skin cells. Awesome, right? This peeling cream is a nifty and wonderful product that comes in the most adorable apple container (by the way, if you can't tell by now, I love apples)!

Would I repurchase? » Yes

The Appletox Smooth Massage Peeling Cream contains a slew of ingredients that help exfoliate and maintain skin's natural brightness and firmness. Here are a few:
  • Green apple extract » An antioxidant and natural source of Malic Acid, a hydroxy acid.
  • Vitamins A, B1, B6, and C » Brightens and firms.
  • AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acid) » Loosens bind between skin and dead cells.

The product inside is creamy and smooth in texture. It feels great when I massage it on my face. Also, maybe I'm weird, but I think it's also kind of fun to use! Plus, it smells like fresh apples! Yum!

The container unscrews to reveal a small plastic lid that simply lifts off. Don't throw this away because it helps to keep dust and whatever else from falling into the cream. The container is pretty hygienic for the most part, which is a must for me, but what I think is lacking is a tiny spatula to scoop out the product. Even with freshly washed hands I don't like the idea of dipping my fingers straight into the product for application (ew, germs). I actually use a spatula from a completely different product to do the job.

How to use: After cleansing, apply generously to dry areas all over the face, avoiding eye and mouth area. Gently massage for 1 to 2 minutes and leave for 30 seconds. Gently rub your face in a circular motion and wash off with lukewarm water.

Note: You only need to use this 2 to 3 times a week. You don't want to overdo it!

These little clumps are actually the dead skin cells. Gross, I know, but effective!

I honestly think that the Appletox Smooth Massage Peeling Cream does just what it claims. It removes my dead skin which results in my face being incredibly soft! I have never had any breakouts or irritations from using this product. I feel that sensitive skin types would be fine to try this also.

One of the perfect times to use the Appletox cream is right before you apply your face mask, as removing the dead skin cells allows for better absorption of the mask essence. Also, for 10 bucks (I actually bought mine for less on Ebay) this product really is a steal!



  1. I just ordered this on eBay. I received a sample of the Tony Moly CC cream and am in love! I plan to try a lot of their products. I feel like I finally found a great line of skincare products. I've wasted more money on this sort of thing!! The cc cream works great for me as a foundation replacement. As I've gotten older I find the foundation starts to settle in the lines on my face. This cc cream doesn't do that, it leaves my skin looking flawless and even, all day!

    1. Thank you for paying Beautiful Doki Doki a visit, Marianne! I'm glad that you decided to try their Appletox peeling cream! It truly is a gem and I'm sure you'll love it! I love the Tony Moly brand in general and I know exactly how you feel about wasting money on horrible me I've been there. If you're in need of a moisturizing cream (day or night) I absolutely adore Tony Moly's Red Appletox Honey Cream, which I will be posting a review on soon. Thanks so much for reading! o(≧∇≦o)

  2. Hi! First time visiting here after googling this very product:-) I've decided to give it a try and since you were recommending other TM products...the Broccoli Sprout Cleansing Cream is a lifesaver. It's so gentle I use it as an overnight mask to moisturize. (It is a cold cream after all.)

    1. Thanks so much for visiting!! (/^▽^)/ I've yet to try the Broccoli Sprout Cleansing Cream so I'm glad you told me it's awesome. I've been looking for a good makeup remover and I've heard good things about this cream, plus it looks super cute! Thanks for the suggestion, I'll definitely keep it in mind!

  3. I like your blog! Really useful review :) I'm already on my second package of this stuff, it's awesome xD In general though, tonymoly products are amazing :3 Have you tried their tomato mask? :3
    Good job, in any case c:

    1. Hi Red Sakura! Thanks so much ^___^ (I love cherry blossoms, btw). And omg yes I LOVE their Tomatox whitening mask! xD xo

    2. You're welcome! ^.^ (I love them too, clearly xD) I know right??? It's so awesome :D :D :D (but unfortunately too expensive for me to have often ;____;)

    3. Have you ever been to a cherry blossom festival? I haven't but I NEED to go someday haha it looks so fun and pretty! oh and I know, Tonymoly always runs away with my wallet (;*△*;)

    4. Hm, I haven't, sadly :( Where I used to live they had one every year but now that I've moved they don't have cherry blossoms ;______; I love the trees <3
      I know right?? Why must my wallet be so empty xD
      Heyy, want to follow each other? c:

    5. 감사합니다 (Thank you) for following me Red Sakura! xo

  4. hi beautiful doki doki, I've just googled about this product and find your nice detailed review!
    definitely going to purchase this as my first peeling cream ^.^
    you have a great blog, I am following you now via GFC <3

    1. Hi Lova!! Thanks for stopping by!! I'm following you back now!! ⊂((・▽・))⊃
      And I think you will really love this peeling cream ^_^ xo

  5. hi! how does this compare to the Cure natural aqua gel?

    1. Hi there!! I'd love to answer this question, but I actually can't because I haven't tried the natural aqua gel :'(!! Sorry! It's on my list of products to try, but I still haven't ran out of my tonymoly one. All I can tell you is that the appletox cream is amazing! I'm pretty sure the Cure one has no fragrance or anything like that in it, so if you don't like fragrance and want something super gentle I've heard good things about that one...but I honestly think the appletox is really gentle as well! xo


I'd love to hear from you! Leave me a comment and I'll respond back in the same post. Let me know if you follow me and I'll follow back! xo
