Tony Moly Press Conference Cum Product Launch (Floria and Latte Art Range) With Song Joong Ki


This Monday 20 December 2010, I was exclusively invited to the private Tony Moly Press Conference Cum Product Launch at InterContinental Hotel @ beside Bugis Junction which started at 12.30pm sharp.

It was to welcome Song Joong Ki to Singapore to celebrate the recent opening of Tony Moly Singapore’s flagship store in Bugis Junction and to launch the NEW Tony Moly Floria and Latte Art range.


Song Joong Ki, its newly appointed brand ambassador, has visited Singapore for the first time. He is here to unveil the newly flagship store which opened on 17 November 2010 as well as to endorse the brand’s newest additions to the retail shelves here - Floria and Latte Art ranges.

Song Joong Ki, a 25 year-old Korean star who has acted on TV series such as Sangkyunkwan Scandal, Obstetrics & Gynaecology Doctors and Triple, has a clean and flawless complexion and is even better than some women out there. Many fans like his “flower pretty boy” image.


When asked what is the first impression in Singapore, he claimed that he actually likes the warm weather in Singapore. What is the product he will recommend to his friends in Singapore? His answer is sunscreen, as the weather is hot and humid here. Does he prefer fun or sensual look? He prefers clean look.


To launch the NEW Latte Art range with an impression, Tony Moly has creatively gotten Song Joong Ki to pour cocoa powder onto a cardboard stencil with “TM” (aka Tony Moly) that was placed on top of a giant cup.

Love the end result!


After which Song Joong Ki signed off on the giant cup.

The Tony Moly Latte Art is ear marked as the brand’s most newest innovative product for the year with its very unique and creative packaging. Packaged exactly like a Latte served in a cappuccino cup complete with aromatic coffee fragrance, the range consists of a Morning Pack and a Scrub.

Latte Art Milk Tea Morning Pack, 80ml – S$32.90

This Latte Art Milk Tea Morning Pack is unlike any other product in the market. It can be used as a Makeup Base Pack in the morning or a Facial Mask.

When it is used as a Makeup Base Pack in the morning, it is superb for working women who find themselves struggling with dry and puffy skin. Just like an early morning cup of quick wake up Latte, the Morning Pack provides an instantaneous acting effect on an overnight skin. This innovative Morning Makeup Base Pack is designed to be super fast acting so that it can be used in the busy morning especially when makeup does not apply smoothly.

Included in the packaging is a creamy milk essence that comes in another creative packaging that looks like a milk creamer for a coffee.

When the creamy milk essence is added into the Morning Pack, it is converted to a multi-functional facial mask that produces marvelous effects after a few seconds of massaging.

The facial mask formula consists of fermented black tea and pure Laminaria Japonica extracts, giving the skin dewy and beaming by revitalizing the skin with a nutrition boost.

It also smoothes out the skin by evening the surface, which in turn improves the adherence of makeup that determines the outcome of the finished look. Active ingredients derived from corn silk tea and caffeine sharpens the contour of the face. It is suitable for all skin type.


Latte Art Cappuccino Cream in Scrub, 80g – S$29.90

This massage and scrub dual functional cream contains coffee and milk extracts. It removes flaky dead skin cells and impurities from the pores and supplies abundant nutrition to the skin.

I actually like the scent of aromatic coffee. This clinically proven non-irritant scrub can be used for all types of skin.

What interesting and unique about this product are the instant heating and color changing effects. These two distinctive features would easily be recognized by the consumers.

My skin feels this warm sensation immediately after 30 seconds of massaging. The mask changes in color from dark brown to almost clear in color. These self-generated heat and color changes help to remove toxins and impurities from the skin.

It effectively massages the skin as if buffers the surface allowing the abundant nutrition to seep into the skin as it removes dry, dead skin cells and impurities from the surface. The product instantly warms upon contact with the skin opening the pores and removing impurities from the pores.

The AHA ingredient (a skin exfoliating ingredient) and scrub grains contained in the milky cream makes the skin smooth and glossy by removing dead skin cells. With its active ingredients of peptide and collagen, it restores skin elasticity and vitality. In addition, the ingredients of caffeine and O2 Carrier Complex contour the face.

Tony Moly Floria product range contains a stem cell extract of Morning Glory flowers (strong antioxidant effects), Evening Primrose Oil (moisturizes skin), Ceramide (increase moisturizing), Auxin (plant hormone to regenerate cells) and Vita Flower Complex (helps skin tone translucence).
