Mask Monday: Forever 21 Snail Mask Sheet

When I saw this at Forever 21, I HAD to give it a try…

I have read that it’s quite trendy in Korea to use facial products that contain snail slime. Supposedly, it refreshes and rejuvenates the skin….

Luckily, I don’t have an aversion to snails. Heck, I have even had snails as pets. They are quiet, clean and pretty neat to watch. However, I never let them crawl on my face. Maybe I was missing out all this time!…

This was an inexpensive risk and, I was game…

Really, it was only a buck. So, I’ll jump to the ending…I wish I would have picked up several more…

My biggest worry was that the mask was going to smell terrible or weird. Nope. It didn’t smell at all…

This was a paper mask that I contoured to my face. I put it on, set my timer on my phone for 20 minutes and, kicked back…

Yes, it is frightful to look at. But, it felt like any other paper mask. It was cooling, very moisturizing and, I didn’t even feel the need to put on any moisturizer after I took the mask off. I just rubbed in the remaining slime…oh, I mean product onto my skin.

Seriously, this was better than I expected it to be. It is, definitely, something I would do on a weekly basis. If it would have been labeled ‘best collagen mask ever’, you would have never known it had snail slime in it.

Have you tried any product containing snail slime? Would you give it a go?

    Love the pic! There is snail slime in several of the skincare products I use including in IT Cosmetics CC Cream. This mask sounds great!

    • i didn’t know about that. I have yet to pick up my first IT product. Now I might have to get the CC Cream.

  • I love snail slime in my beauty products, it’s actually been clinically proven to increase skin regeneration, so it belongs right there with tried-and-true retinol, vitamin C, AHA and BHA, as one of those things that actually do work. The only reason it’s not more popular is probably because, well, snails.

    • Thanks for the info, Anastasia! You know I love that type of information.

    I haven’t tried anything with snail in it (that I know of at least) but given that I’m a big fan of sheet masks, I really should.

    • You can always check this out since it’s only $1.

  • I keep reading about snail slime and wile the word slime does funky things to me I’d be game to try products that contain that ingredient. Hey, this old face needs all the help it can get… Snail slime? I’m game. lol

    • I guess since I had pet snails and didn’t think anything about their slime, I don’t feel weird using it in a face product. I seriously hope I can find more of these.

  • The snail slime part freaks me out a bit hahah, but I’m glad to hear that it works well! I love sheet masks.

    • I think it does to most folks. I can’t begrudge anyone who would find this freaky.

  • Cindy Ingalls

    I haven’t tried the snail slime yet, but I do love face masks.

    • This felt like any other paper mask I’ve used. But, I think this one made my skin feel a bit softer.

  • marciaf

    $1 is so cheap. I just reviewed a face mask that is $10 for one. I hope you can find it again.

    • That’s a big price difference. I would love to compare the two.

  • I’ve tried a few products with snail slime, I think mostly It Cosmetics.

    • Did you like it? I will have to check It Cosmetics out since, now I’m curious.

  • Aleya Bamdad

    I’ve seen these but I just can’t…..

    • I think it does freak most folks out. I can understand that.

  • …I just have this image of Michael Myers in my head…

    • Stop! Girl!! You are making me giggle.

  • I’ve found so many fun beauty treasures for SO CHEAP at Forever 21! Glad to know this is one to pick up!

    • My most favorite makeup wipes, their Lavender ones, come from there. However, I haven’t found any in some time. I’m glad I stocked up on the wipes.

  • Cosmetic Sanctuary

    I’ve never picked up cosmetic or skincare stuff at F21! I’ll have to take a peek next time!

    • It can be hit or miss there. Mostly miss but I’m over the moon when I do find something good there. I love their nail polish as well as their Lavender makeup wipes. Oh, and I have a few more paper masks I picked up there to review. Stay tuned! πŸ˜‰

  • Norah Salazar

    I have gotten awesome makeup remover wipes from F21 but the sheet mask is a WIN.

    • I picked up several masks at the time I got this one. I’m looking forward to reviewing them.

  • I have tried snail skincare, and it’s pretty awesome. It can have a weird texture, but it’s totally worth it. I even have some snail haircare that is amazeballs!

    • I’m love to try some snail care for the hair. πŸ™‚

  • FabZilla_Kath

    I thought F21 has their own line of mask. I hoard face masks like these πŸ™‚

    • They might. But all the ones I picked up come from Korea. I’ll have to look for the F21 brand.

  • I have never tried snail products, but this mask sounds like a good one.

    • I recommend it to anyone that likes sheet masks.

  • haha…I was alarmed when I learned that my HG IT Cosmetics CC cream contained snail whatevers…I actually emailed someone in customer service because I was so disturbed. It’s gathered in a way that it’s cruelty free and sanitary. I have a great article on how this is done, so let me know if you’re super anal like me and want to read it LOL.
    How awesome this is so inexpensive. I’d definitely stock up!!

    • I read a few few articles on the snails before I used this. Where I don’t mind the snail slime, I didn’t like the idea of snail bodies in my beauty products. Like I mentioned, I have had a few snail pets and that just wouldn’t fly with me. My last three snails I had in Florida were named, Shell-don, Shell-y and Slimon. LOL

  • SNAILS! It seems like a good try but idk… LOL anything for beauty, right?

    • I really was OK with it. Since it isn’t actual snails in the product. But, I know it would be an ICK factor for many.

  • Snails? Hmmm…. okay – that sounds interest, but I would totally try it. My twins would say… ” Mom – why are you putting turbo on your face?” Everything snails are turbo. lol

    • I think you are referencing a movie? I think you’d like this mask. It made my skin feel very soft and moist.

      • hahaha – yes, my sons love the movie Turbo and every snail they see, they now call Turbo. πŸ™‚

  • I have picked up many masks there & quite liked them!

    • Cool! I have several I picked up and am looking forward to reviewing them.

  • I love sheet masks and I want to try one of these snail ones.

      I knew you’d be game!! πŸ™‚
