My Beauty Diary Snail Mask is probably my favorite sheet masks from the brand. I have a TON of favs but for my drier skin this is really a tried and true favorite for getting my drier skin in order.
Take a look!
This is one of My Beauty Diary’s two step facial sheet mask systems. They offer another formula like this, the Luffa Mask, that I reviewed for you in a prior post.
The mask basically contains a sheet mask and a tear off pouch that contains a follow up moisturizer treatment. I love this little extra as the mask alone hydrates nicely but following up with the packet of moisturizer takes things to another level.
So brace yourself…
“Snail” is in fact referencing the fact that the mask and moisturizer contains mucus secreted by snails. Yes, possibly disgusting..however, it’s one of the latest, hottest trends in Asia and pretty much every skincare product that pops up lately has some sort of snail mucus in it!
If you can get over the “mucus” bit you’ll be pleasantly surprised that the product doesn’t smell bad, feel weird, and it won’t remind you of snails…honest. I’m not going to go into great detail about snail mucus because there are SO many claims about how amazing it is for your skin but I will say my experience with “snail” products hasn’t really produced the amazing results that Asian brand marketing would have me believe. I’m not younger, I’m not whiter, but hey, I am kinda more moist, at least it’s working a little bit.
This mask was created to increases skin’s elasticity and hydrate skin. I love it because I find it highly moisturizer and my dry skin can use all the moisture it can get.
The first step you’ll want to do is tear the pouch off the top of the packaging and place it aside. Now apply the mask, it has holes for your eyes, nose, and mouth….you’ll leave it on for 30 minutes or more if you’d like. It’s made of a thin fiber material saturated in essence. After use skin feels smoother however to really seal in that moisture you’ll be applying the extra pouch of moisture. I was surprised this was actually a thick, creamy lotion. I expected more essence as typically that’s what these sort of extra pouches contain. But, no, this does indeed contain a thick, creamy moisturizer. Once applied skin will feel super soft, hydrated, and very moisturized. The next day after use you’ll find your skin will look and feel quite hydrated with a lasting effect.
Overall, My Beauty Diary Snail Mask is a solid pick for dry skin. It provides long term moisture and gives dry skin a super pick me up. I really love this one and highly recommend it. Don’t be swayed by the entire snail mucus thing…honestly, you’d never know there was snail anything in it….!
I recommend Sasa.com for My Beauty Diary purchases as you know you’re getting real masks (not black market) and they are fairly reasonable in price!
Also Imomoko.com is another place that has very reasonable prices, fast shipping, and a large selection of My Beauty Diary products.
