(PR) Maskhouse Celebrity Snail Extract Moisturizing Gel Mask Review


Hello there dear readers! More snails, I love snails... mucin! Yes, I ain't referring the actual snail of course, they kinda creep me out BUT I love the mucin (or mucus) they produce~ I had been facing some skin troubles recently (hormonal) so I didn't immediately use this mask when I first received it. This is a luxurious mask which I wouldn't wanna waste!

1.  Cleanse & dry the face.

4.  Apply the lower sheet inthe same way as Step 2) &3).

Anyway, the descriptions are in Chinese since it's a hong kong brand mask. I thought it would be even nicer to include a sticker with English description sticked behind for people who can't read chinese well(me lol) or can't at all. Translating it in google will end up with funny results so.. However, fret not, their website has the descriptions so maybe you can just read it from there if you need more information!

Main Ingredients:
Snail Secretion Filtrate
Acetyl hexapeptide-8
Amino Acid
Hyaluronic Acid

Full ingredient list as pictured above. Luckily this is in English!

When I pulled out the mask, I was surprised!

I did not expect it to be a 2 piece hydrogel mask. I have a love hate relationship with these, it's rather challenging for me to hold on to one and apply the other one. But, these doesn't drip which was great, no mess caused for me!

There were two layers of plastic sandwiching the mask, which I really appreciate, as it might be difficult to open and spread out since it's quite slimy. It took me awhile to apply the mask as it was slippery and I was afraid of dropping it.

The sheet mask material was awesome! It's real hydrogel, semi-clear, looks super glossy and adheres perfectly on the skin. For the fitting and adherence I have absolutely no complains. Maybe just tough for me to put em on at the start, some real skills needed here. It was my virgin try with a 2 pcs mask anyway, so yeah.

Adheres very well. It's like gluing to your skin. But I feel like the mask isn't soaked of much essence? I really thought I was placing rubbers for fun on my face initially. After reading closely I think the hydrogel mask actually absorbs all the essence and penetrates into your skin! So it gets drier and thiner as time pass by. I had this mask on for about 15-20 mins.

The absorption was quite instant? It didn't require much patting and everything was pretty much fuss free, no leftover essence sitting on my face, no stickiness. But I don't feel very hydrated the next morning, or maybe even after pulling off the mask that night before. The feeling was refreshing, cooling and lightweight but missing of hydration. It was also stated to be more suitable towards dry skin, but somehow I felt it may not be moisturising enough.

Selfie! Been praising the adherence, not much scent detected too. Looks super good when with the mask on. I wish my skin was as glowy as the mask haha!

Does it does what it claims?
Claim 1: Skin Restoring
I do see slight redness reduction on my cheeks directly after use, but the next morning my nose area looks red again.
Claim 2: Anti-Aging
Skin looks firmer after use! Softer in fact.
Claim 3: Promote Regeneration
I don't see a big game changer here, maybe need a few more times of use to see.
(I will update again!)
Claim 4: Winkle Removal 
I don't face this issue at the moment, so I m not giving opinions for this.
Claim 5: Intensive Moisturizing
I don't think it's gonna be moisturizing enough for dry skin but for me(oily skin) it did a rather perfect job. I only drank like 2 cups of water instead of 8 yesterday so my skin looks a little dull this morning and dead.

Summary of product:

~ Not hydrating enough.
~ Effects were too temporarily for me. I suggest using this in the morning, so you can have a good skin day!

| Would I buy this again? |
It cost HKD132 (Approx $24sgd) which means one sheet is $8 approx. For this price point, I would not be repurchasing, unless there is a discount, I wouldn't mind to get it as it's such a great skin pampering session. But it's kinda too much for me to afford for regular use. It's great to use when you have important occasions on that day. This is a pretty luxurious mask.
