Hello ladies! How are you? I have been really busy with my studies, work and all, I did not have time to write anything on my blog, and finally now I have managed to sit down and write some posts which have been due for a long time now. Today I am going to review my current favorite sheet mask which is Nature Republic Snail Solution! I got it as a sample by purchasing from the Nature Republic store in Seoul. I have been using these sheet masks for about 2 times a week in the past few months. I've been loving products from Nature Republic, so I decided to try out this sample that I got. I just think that it would be a waste if I won't be able to share it with you guys!
Let me start with the packaging, look how cute that looks! This sheet mask comes in a simple plastic packaging which shows a snail on the front of the packaging. I really love the idea of putting the snail it's really eye catching and it looks so adorable just like the real snail. =D
* NN5823 Snail solution 1,000 hydrogel mask sheet
Snail Solution 1,000 hydrogel mask sheet contains 1,000mg of concentrated snail mucus extract obtained from snails raised in a cean evironment. This natural agar hydrogel mask has excellent hydrating and restorative effects with strong abhesion to the skin. leaving the skin smooth and healthy by helping it to recover from various common skin problems including blemishes. acne scars, flushed skin, a dark and dull complexion, and sagging skin.
It has 20g in a package.
This is the back side of the pacakaging! They printed the expiry date and batch code on the pouch.
Here's the directions on how to use it as well as the ingredients list! You can click to see detail!
How to use:
1. After applying toner, pull out mask sheet from package and unfold
2. Apply the mask sheet onto the face from the lower (chin) part of the mask and move upward towards the forehead
3. Remove mask sheet after 10-15 minutes
4. Gently pat any remaining formula into skin.
For external use only. Avoid contact with eyes and mouth. Discontinue use if signs of irritation or rashes appear. Keep out of reach of children.
The mask has a very light and natural scent which I like, it smells slightly floral yet refreshing and do not find it overwhelming. The mask was of a thicker material and inside the packaging you could see the residue solution from the mask, which shows what a thick and moisturizing mask. The solution is a creamy white color and has a watery texture.
The biggest problem was actually the peculiar shape and position of the eye holes though, the sheet mask for the nose area is a bit short though while the cut-out area for the lips is slightly wider.
This is me using the mask, please don't run away. Ok? Hahaha. ㅠㅠ
I find the shape of the mask quite odd as it is really difficult to adjust it to the shape of my face, so in terms of application I did not really like it as it was not that convenient to put on the face, what with having to constantly adjust it. As you can see the mask itself didn't fit my eyes, nose, and chin very well.
This mask should be used after cleaning the face. I put it on my face for an extra 5 minutes totalling to 20 minutes. Oh yeah guys, I just want to let you know, you shouldn't leave it on your face for too long because leaving it long on your skin doesn't necessarily mean that it will do your skin good. To be honest, I was under the impression that the longer it stays on the skin the better it is until I was being advised by my boyfriend that it's the other way round, the longer you left it on your skin, the more moisture that it will absorbs off from your skin into the sheet mask. After being shared this piece of great information, I no longer leave sheet mask on my face more than 30 minutes. This mask is pretty amazing! After a 20 minutes treatment, my skin look radiant, feels soothing, smoother, moisturized, and brighter. Another good news is my skin felt more elastic after just one use. Also my skin is so silky and soft now, it just feels so clean, refreshed and I even feel more relaxed from it. I have to be careful about what products I put on my face, because I break out easily, but this mask didn't break me out, and instead improved my skin. I will need to get more of this mask!
