Tony Moly Pureness 100 Snail Mask Sheet Review

 

 

Hey Beauty Lovers!

As you know, I’m slightly obsessed with sheet masks. I usually stick to higher end masks, but every now and then, I like to give more affordable options a try. I purchased this mask from the dollar section of the MaskSheets site with my own money.

 

This mask is marketed for sensitive skin, and it claims to repair damaged skin. I decided to test out these claims by using it the day after a chemical peel. My skin feels pretty sensitive and can get irritated easily after a peel, so I was really hoping that this mask wouldn’t burn my skin!

 

Ingredients:

water, glycerin, butylene glycol, alcohol, snail secretion filtrate (7000 ppm), betaine, phenoxyethanol, sodium hyaluronate, PEG-60 hydrogenated castor oil, allantoin, camellia sinensis leaf extract, hamamelis virginiaana (Witch Hazel) extract, morus alba bark extract, 1,2-hexanediol, propanediol, caprylyl glycol, illicium verum (anise) fruit extract, carbomer, triethanolamine, xanthan gum, disodium EDTA, ethylhexylglycerin, fragrance

 

Directions:

Apply the sheet mask after cleansing the skin. Leave the mask on for 20-30 minutes. After removing the mask, gently pat the remaining essence into your skin. For best results, use 2-3 times a week for 4 weeks.

 

How I Used This Mask:

After double cleansing, I applied rose water, essence, and serum. I then applied this sheet mask, and left it on for 30 minutes. I pat the remaining essence into my skin, and I followed up with moisturizer. I only have one of these masks, so I will not be testing it out over the course of a month.

 

What I Liked About This Mask:

  • Great fit for my face, and it stayed put the entire 30 minutes
  • Made with Snail Secretion Filtrate
  • Successfully calmed my irritated skin after a chemical peel
  • Didn’t make me break out
  • Unbleached cotton sheet- I’m not usually a fan of cotton sheets, but this one was actually very comfortable
  • Instant results
  • Affordable

 

Side Note:

Taking the mask out of the packaging, the first thing I noticed were black specks all over the sheet. Of course I freaked out, but after inspecting the packet, I noticed that it does have the following statement:

 

“This mask sheet is made by NON-bleached fabric which contains cottonseeds.”

 

I assumed that the black specks were cottonseeds, and I really hope they weren’t insects. Needless to say, I had anxiety the entire time that the mask was on my face. The mask did feel very soothing, and my skin looks surprisingly refreshed when I took it off.

 

Overall, I’m impressed with the quality of this TonyMoly mask!

Skinfood Black Sugar Wash Off Mask Review

Hello everyone! I’m so glad to finally be able to sit down and write a beauty review today. 

To be honest, it actually feels like a crime writing a review right now because I (for the love of the skincare gods) bailed out on my skincare routine out of sheer laziness during the last two weeks of December (2017) and I stopped putting anything on my face, save for a cleanser and a moisturizer. During that time, I just kinda left my skin as it is and didn’t even bother to exfoliate. So by the time the new year came, my skin felt rough and dry.

In an attempt to finally draw myself out from my skincare rut, I scoured my shelves for the most promising exfoliating scrub in my stash and found the Skinfood Black Sugar Wash Off Mask.

Let’s head on to the review.

 

Product Description

The Black Sugar Mask Wash off Mask is an exfoliating mask scrub which effectively cleanses the pores and leaves the skin soft and smooth. Enriched with vitamins, minerals, and other organic ingredients, this mask scrub helps in removing dead skin cells and revitalizing the skin.

Usage Instruction

After cleansing, apply desired amount of product onto face. Leave it on for about 10 to 15 minutes and then wash off with lukewarm water.

Ingredients

Sucrose, Peg-7 Glyceryl Cocoate, Glycerin, Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax, Macadamia Ternifolia Seed Oil, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Cetyl Ethylhexanoate, Lanolin, Stearalkonium Hectorite, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Limnanthes Alba (Meadowfoam) Seed Oil, Caramel, Sorbitan Laurate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Ethylhexylglycerin, Water, Fragrance

Quantity | Price | Availability

100 g | PHP 330 | Althea Korea

 

I got this mask from my first ever haul from Althea Korea, together with the Rice wash off mask which I really fell in love with. (You can check the review here) I seriously almost totally forgotten about the Black Sugar mask until I rummaged through the pile of unopened skincare products in my stash.

The Skinfood Black Sugar Wash off Mask comes in a super cute plastic container which is also the same container as the Rice Wash off Mask. It also comes with a thin plastic lid that separates the actual product from the top cover. The plastic lid is embossed with Skinfood’s logo, as shown in the photo below.

The product information is written in Korean and in English. The manufacturing date and the expiration date are also printed on the container. Apparently, mine is expiring in a few months haha. (Skincare gods, please forgive me for using this just now!)

 

 

The actual product comes in a lumpy and sticky texture, so much like caramelized sugar. Some reviews claim that this product smells like burnt sugar, but for me, the scent leans more on the citrusy or lemony side.

This wash off mask has sugar granules which others find quite abrasive for the face. For those who have acne-prone or sensitive skin, extra care must be taken in using this product as the granules may indeed cause irritation. But so far, this mask scrub really worked well on me as it was able to deeply exfoliate my skin and leave it fresh, smooth and supple.

The only drawback that I have with the wash off mask was that it wasn’t able to remove all of my blackheads and whiteheads completely.  There was still a noticeable amount on my nose even after using the mask. Maybe I’ll try chemical exfoliation soon to finally get rid of these pesky blackheads.

Overall, I really enjoyed using the Black Sugar Wash off Mask. The mask really delivers its claim in providing effective exfoliation. Although I still prefer the Rice Wash off Mask as it milder and more gentle on the skin, I am still gonna keep the Black Sugar Wash off Mask in close range for days when I feel like my skin needs that extra hand in getting rid of deep-seated dirt and dead skin cells. To sum up, the Black Sugar Wash off Mask is really a great exfoliating scrub that’s worth every penny you pay for.

What I like:

  • It effectively exfoliates the skin.
  • It effectively removes dead skin cells and other impurities.

I really wish the wash off mask could remove all of my blackheads but it wasn’t able to accomplish that task perfectly well.
