How to use:

Tonymoly The Black Tea London Classic Serum is to be used after using a toner and essence, but since it has such intense moisture effect, I use it directly after my toner and finish off my routine with a cream.



Tonymoly The Black Tea London Classic Serum comes in a translucent brown colored plastic bottle with a pump type packaging. I love its simple practical packaging.



The cap actually looks like a cylindrical hat. LOL!!


Expiry: Use it within 12 months after opening.

Quantity: 55 ml (old version) & new version (50 ml)

Price: I bought mine from cosmetic-love for a discounted amount of $14 and I am linking down few of the purchase options:



Consistency/ Texture / fragrance / Absorbability:

Tonymoly The Black Tea London Classic Serum has a bouncy, soft, viscous consistency and has a citrusy bitter tea-like scent in it. Even though it has a thick texture, it sinks in easily and keeps skin soft and dewy.


thick oil serum


On spreading it might give an appearance of a face oil…

But once patted it, it doesn’t look sticky and keeps skin soft.




Ok! I might not sound here very exciting about the Tonymoly The Black Tea London Classic Serum but I didn’t find anything bad about it. I bought it and enjoyed it in my routine and I am keeping this as an option in the future for the dry winter season. Since I am one someone who cannot use face oil in excess, I am always in the look out for a good alternative option that can moisturize my skin but without causing any irritation. This product is actually empty and the opinion shared here is a final one.



  • It provided a good level of hydration and moisture to the skin.
  • Made skin soft and dewy.
  • Didn’t cause any irritation on my very dry, sensitive and acne prone skin.
  • Even though the scent is a bit peculiar, it faded away from the application.
  • Travel-friendly packaging.
  • Alcohol-Free
  • Paraben-Free
  • It doesn’t have too many oils.



  • I didn’t notice any long term skin brightening results, I kind of expected that as I saw some skin brightening ingredients.
  • Also, didn’t see any anti-aging benefit. LOL.. honestly its too much to expect from this product.

Rating: 3.5/5

Do I recommend it? Yes, if you have very dry or dehydrated skin, this is a good serum.

Will I repurchase? Not for now, maybe in the future.
