So, I got this awesome package from a girl called Si-Jeong sent to me all the way from Korea. Amongst the cosmetics (which I will post about soon), and the billion sheet masks, this one Tonymoly mask stood out to me as something a little different.
SNAIL MASK?!?! I was all "oh, maybe that's just a cutesy brand thing, I'm sure it's not actually made of real snail". So I popped it on and chilled out with a cup of tea and
two five eleven Oreos, and flipped it over to the back to read the instructions (I have the worst habit of reading product how-tos only once I've used it the way I think it should be used).
And then I saw this.
"Contains astonishing filtered liquid of snail mucin"
"Extracted mucin element from snail"
"Snail Secretion filtrate"
SNAIL ON MY FACE!!!!
So gross, you guys. You betcha I washed that off quick smart, toned, serumed, moisturised and tried to forget about it forever.
But, just real quietly, my skin was so soft the next morning.
If you have no qualms about rubbing snail slime into your face, this mask is great for moisturising dry skin.
If like me, this was your reaction to reading this post-
-then snail sheet masks may not be your thing.
The moral of this story is to ALWAYS read the instructions, labels and ingredients. And if a slimy product is named after a slimy creature, there is a high likelihood their worlds have crossed over in the manufacturing process.
