Big dramatic claims for this skin mask! I’ve used face packs before but thought this looked quite promising as it was a gel mask, although the thought of snail secretion was a bit off-putting!
It was quite difficult to apply due to being so slippery and it looked hilarious when in I actually got it in place. The mask consists of two pieces – one for your chin (with an aperture cut out for your mouth) and one for your forehead, nose and eyes. It was not a great fit on me, but it does have to cater for all shapes and sizes of face.
It felt incredibly cold when first applied but then started to tighten up and I experienced a not-unpleasant tingling sensation. I left it on for the recommended 40mins then peeled it off. It didn’t need to be rinsed off and any residual gel dried in quickly.
My face definitely felt firmer and looked brighter afterwards, although I’m not sure there was any visible difference to my fine lines or wrinkles. My skin did feel incredibly soft and well moisturised without being sticky.
I was impressed with this mask – I have oily skin and thought it might make this worse but as it was a gel rather than an oil, it didn’t leave my skin feeling greasy.
