#Elishacoy Snail Hydrogel Mask #Review

Elishacoy Snail Hydrogel Mask
25g | Made in Korea
This item was purchased by me.

Description: Elishacoy’s Snail Hydrogel Mask Sheet mainly contains 70% of snail slime filtrate which immediately improves the condition of damaged and stressed skin. The mask has a highly concentrated snail essence that deeply penetrates the skin to be able to fully work and nourish from deep under the skin’s layers. It promotes a firmer, more elastic skin and makes the skin more youthful and smooth. -Memebox

Ingredients: [Cosdna analysis] Water, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Snail Secretion Filtrate, Grapefruit Extract, Carob Bean Gum, Carrageenan, Cellulose Gum, Polyacrylate-13, Disodium EDTA, Sodium Polyacrylate, Polyisobutene, Polysorbate 20, phenoxyethanol, Perfume, Seawater, Green Tea Extract, Ginseng Extract, Aloe Vera Leaf Extract, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Sodium Oleate, Acetyl Hexapeptide-8, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Extract, Thymus Vulgaris (Thyme) Flower/leaf Extract, Unscented Geranium Extract, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Extract, Mentha Piperita (Peppermint) Leaf Extract, Eucalyptus Leaf Extract, Spearmint Flower/Leaf/Stem Extract, Citrus Limon (Lemon) Fruit Extract, Oregano Leaf Extract

Directions: After cleansing, place the Snail Hydrogel Mask Sheet onto the face and leave it for 20 to 30 minutes until the essence is absorbed. Afterwards, remove the mask and use lightweight pressure to gently massage your face and allow full absorption to take place.

My skin is oily, dehydrated, acne-prone with hormonal cystic acne from PCOS and sensitive to alcohol, bee venom and propolis.

Performance: The Snail Hydrogel Mask from Elishacoy comes in a traditional foil packet. There are two pieces of gel (top and bottom of face) that are each sandwiched by two pearl-papers to prevent bunching in the package and for easier application. There isn't a real noticeable scent to this mask, but there is a slight freshness to it - very pleasing. I removed the thicker of the two papers from the top mask first and applied it to my face, then removed the thinner paper from the outside. This made it very simple to apply and there wasn't any fussing with adjustment afterwards either. I then repeated this method with the bottom half of the mask.
The gel felt very cooling on the skin, which is what I was hoping for on my irritated skin. There was a small amount of essence that dripped from the mask (which told me the gel was packed with moisture) but it did absorb quickly. I was able to wear this mask for about an hour before the edges and under my nose began to dry out too much for comfortable wear.

Verdict: I found this mask to be very soothing and calming to my skin, and it also brightening my face - including redness and hyper-pigmentation.

My face was very well hydrated (for me) when I applied this mask, so the very slight increase in moisture was not disappointing. I am glad to see that this mask was also hydrating, and held in the moisture I applied before it. 
This was a good mask, that delivered many great results. It's a bit expensive for regular use, but nice for an occasional treat.
