Review: TONYMOLY I’m Real Ginseng Mask

Replenish your skin with our I’m Real Sheet Mask Collection! Available in sets of 2 in an array of ingredients, the 3-layer pulp sheet is filled with natural ingredients and soaked in different types of enriched essence (Water-type, Micro-Emulsion Type, Milky Lotion Type) to yield maximum hydration for your skin. Transform dull and tired skin into healthy, moisturized skin in as little as 20 minutes!


I found this mask at Marshall’s for $6 for a pack of 10 – a great deal considering the ingredients! Ginseng is an awesome all-around ingredient for all people and I’m so glad to find a mask that prioritizes this. The mask itself is quite stiff and easily rips, so be careful with your application. Though this mask is definitely wet with serum, it’s not very goopy, so don’t except any residue in the package or any dripping after application. Though some face masks can easily be left on the skin for after its 20 min. recommended time, this is a mask you’ll want to take off as soon as your time is up. Once you hit the 20 minute mark, the mask starts to lose some of its wetness – now absorbed into the skin, and its important to take the mask off before it’s dry (otherwise it will absorb YOUR moisture rather than vice versa). Afterwards, the serum will quickly set into the skin, easy-peasy.

Ingredient Pros and Cons

Ingredients: Water, Glycerin, Methylpropanediol Glycereth-26, PEG/PPG-17/6 Copolymer, Panax Ginseng Root Extract, Panax Ginseng Callus Culture, Extract Sodium Hyaluronate, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Allantoin, Panthenol, Carbomer, Tromethamine, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Hydroxyacetophenone, Chlorphenesin, Disodium, EDTA Fragrance

Significant Pros

  • Glycerin (moisturizing)
  • Panax Ginseng Root Extract (addresses wrinkles, dullness, oil production, and hyper-pigmentation, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory)
  • Panax Ginseng Callus Culture (addresses wrinkles, dullness, oil production, and hyper-pigmentation, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory)
  • Extract Sodium Hyaluronate (hydrating)
  • Hydrolyzed Collagen (skin healing, moisturizing)
  • Allantoin (calming)
  • Panthenol (moisturizing)

Significant Cons

  • EDTA Fragrance (skin irritant, but it’s the last ingredient in a sheet mask, so I really don’t think it’s worth worrying about)

The Takeaway

Though this is a pleasant mask, don’t expect any miracles. I couldn’t really tell any difference in my face after using it (unlike my Bombee Honey Mask), and that seems to be a sign that multiple consistent uses may be the best way to yield a result. Still, I’d rather buy an actual ginseng serum than cross my fingers for this to work after 10 uses. I’ll still happily finish the rest of this mask set (it’s ginseng after all) and I see no harm in recommending it to others if you want to try a simple, affordable, fun face mask with no mess.
