COSRX Review || Holy Moly Snail Mask

As previously stated in the up and coming post, this is one of the sheet masks that I’ve been trying out a few times. The mask itself is packed full of K-beauty cult ingredients and today we’ll see if this is something I’m gonna buy again.

COSRX is a Korean beauty brand that incorporates effective ingredients such as snail mucin, yeast ferment, and chemical exfoliants to transform your skin. They have fuss-free, simple products suitable for all skin types. They are suggesting the new standard of good cosmetics, and focusing on the health of your skin, with maximizing good components and minimized harming ingredients while having a reasonable price, something I totally can agree with! From what I’ve tried out from COSRX I’m pretty pleased. Their products do their job, and it’s not expensive. This is their first and only sheet mask, pr today’s date, and personally, I would love to see them push more masks out to the k-beauty market!

The mask claims to plump and hydrate your skin with ginseng, snail mucin and hyaluronic acid(the full ingredients list can be found at the bottom of this post).  The Holy Moly Snail Mask is supposed to lock in the moisture with a nourishing formula and after 15-20 mins it will leave your skin hydrated, plump and smooth while restoring the elasticity of the skin and deeply moisturize. Personally I’ve been a bit skeptical of snail mucin products, cause they tend to feel stick on my skin, but to be honest, they aren’t that bad and I might implement some mucin into my routine when the winter comes. The formula uses red ginseng water as a base instead of plain water, this has an anti-wrinkle effect and anti-melanogenesis effect. Now, I’m not going to act like I know what this means so I went ahead and Googled it, and it’s a process where cells produce melanin, which is the pigment that can be found in our skin. So I kinda guess this will prevent your skin from going darker? or at least make your skin look brighter. As mentioned it also contains snail mucin, one of the most popular ingredients in Korean skincare.  It has anti-aging and skin repairing properties that can improve the overall texture and skin tone of your face. Like if you have acne scars from picking pimples, or redness from being kicked in the face, snails can help you!

So, this is my last one. Is it worth a repurchase? 

The mask fits well, and I don’t have a lot of negative things to say about it.  There’s a lot of essence on the mask, each time I’ve been able to apply essence almost to my whole body. The sheet is comfy and pretty thick, and sometimes thick papers won’t fit well – but this does. I haven’t had any reactions the other time and it makes my skin hydrated and smooth. This time I kinda ended up loving the fit of the mask, and the end result is pretty good!

Price vice its a bit expensive, not as cheap as other k-beauty sheet mask but I kinda feel that you get what you are paying for. I would def buy it again, however, this isn’t a mask that I could see myself use 2-3 times a week but maybe once a month when I feel like splurging and treat my self. I bought mine from Look Fantastic, for 33 NOK (something between 3-4 USD) but they cost the same on eBay.
