Once or twice a week I use a sheet mask, usually when I am lazy to go through the whole “application and rinsing” process of any regular wash-off mask. Today, I will be reviewing Cosrx holy moly snail mask that contains red ginseng water instead of regular water, and snail mucin. Let’s get into the review for further details.
INR 200 for 1 sheet mask.
The Holy Moly Snail Sheet mask is enriched with everyone’s fave Snail Mucin and Red Ginseng Water instead of regular water; this amazing mask nourishes and moisturizes skin on another level. Snail Mucin delivers lasting nutrients, plumping, firming, elasticizing, and hydrating skin. Plus, the sheet is a pretty peachy shade infused with Camellia Japonica Seed Oil, soothing skin while you slow down and kick back.
The ingredient list is pretty small and one of the best things is red ginseng water instead of regular water. Red Ginseng Water, Snail Secretion Filtrate, Methylpropanediol, Butylene Glycol, 1, 2-Hexanediol, Allantoin, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Sodium Polyacrylate, Hyaluronic Acid, Carbomer, Arginine, Ethylhexylglycerin, Phenoxyethanol.
How To Use:
Apply mask on cleansed and toned face. Relax for 15 to 20 minutes, and then remove. Gently pat remaining essence for better absorption.
My Experience with Cosrx Holy Moly Snail Mask:
Cosrx holy moly snail mask has a very basic, regular packaging. It comes in a white-colored foil sachet that houses all the information. In the center, it has some details about the product as well. Overall, the packaging is travel friendly and easy to use.
The mask is exactly like the other sheet masks, soft to touch. It is not that thin, but feels comfortable over the skin. The fit is not that perfect, but definitely something you can work with. It is light peach in colour, infused with camellia Japonica Seed Oil. The sheet mask is infused with a soothing ingredient. The mask was drenched in the serum and it was dripping wet. When I was clicking the pictures, essence was pouring down from my fingers at the same time. The essence was slippery, having medium consistency with a sticky texture. Well, snail mucin is for surely going to be sticky. After taking the mask out, there was nearly two tablespoons of essence was let in the sachet, which I stored for further use. The fragrance was subtle, somewhat resembling the ginseng’s. It was not that pleasant, but not off-putting as well. The use of red ginseng water instead of water is its second distinct feature.
These days, I am using a lot of moisturizing masks to replenish moisture loss. There are dry patches over the cheek and under the eye area that needs a lot of moisture. This sheet mask caught my eye because of the use of red ginseng water instead of regular water. I know I am mentioning it for the third time, but it’s something distinct, especially when you find most of the sheet masks having regular water at the top of their ingredient list.
The sheet mask was easy to apply on face, I kept it for 25 minutes. Within 25 minutes, it started to dry out over the cheeks, but was wet enough over other areas. The sheet mask imparted a nice, cooling, and soothing effect. However, there was a bit of tingling around the nose, near the inner corner of the eye. It was mild tingling and not uncomfortable, but I had my mind all the time there only. I don’t know why there was tingling, but I didn’t get any rashes or redness there. Rest assured the mask didn’t cause any acne or irritation to the skin. Moreover, I could feel the firming effect when the sheet mask was on my face.
After removing the sheet mask, there was a very thin layer of essence sitting over the facial skin. My skin literally drank up all the essence from that dripping sheet mask. The remaining essence got absorbed into the skin with a little patting, providing a velvety soft-finish. Since I have acne-prone and sensitive skin; I cleansed my face with water after 15 minutes as a precaution. My skin is still recovering from recent breakouts, and I couldn’t predict if any ingredient can irritate the skin. I would definitely recommend you to cleanse your face if you have oily or acne-prone skin after using a sheet mask. Post rinsing, my skin was softer, smoother with a subtle glow. It hydrated the dry patches effectively, but for not long enough. After a few hours only, the skin was in the need of moisture. And along with the moisture loss, skin loses plumpness as well.
Overall, it is a nice sheet mask with distinct features that you could try out.
