Product Review: Nature Republic Snail Therapy Mask Sheet

Friday, April 13, 2012

    Hi! How's your day? Summer is already making its wave in our country. It's freaking hot outside and I perspire a lot! Every little move I do inside our house, I can see and feel my sweat running down my face and my back. I always tie my hair up because I know the dirt in my hair will be transferred on my face through sweat. Even though I do this the result is ginormous zits! My skin is really acting up lately. From whiteheads,blackheads, pimples and cystic acne name it and you can see them now on my face. I don't know if this is due to hormonal changes in my body because I just had my monthly period. It's weird that all of these wrath suddenly appears on my skin knowing that I haven't change my skin regimen for a long time now. Or maybe it's just our humid weather that causes flare ups on my face that is unsightly for me.

     I'm desperate, I need help. I know I can't solve this overnight so what I need is to add something in my basic skin care routine. So it's time for me to use some of the products that I won last February. I opt to use this mask sheet from Nature Republic because I'm intrigued with the snail mucus thingy. I googled some information about snail slime that says can do wonders for the skin. Let's see what this can do with my icky face.

my face after 25 minutes, I can see a little difference
What I like:
  • relaxing
  • mild scent
  • a little cooling effect
  • easy to use
  • the remaining formula is not dripping unlike other face mask
  • easily available
  • English text and diagram on how to use
  • decreased the redness on my zits and allergies
What I don't like:
  • gave me another cystic pimple the next day
  • leaves my face sticky after use
  • size of the mask doesn't adheres to the contours of my face
Will I repurchase? No, there's a lot of face mask variant out there to try.

     I give this a 3/5 rating. I think my skin is not "hiyang" with some of the ingredients that's why I break out more the next day. I'm not sure if snail is considered as seafood. I made a little research and I just got confused. So if it is, then I'm allergic to it. I have thyroid problem and a pinch of "bagoong" reacts on my skin immediately. 

     Any suggestions on face mask that's good for combination skin? Thanks for sharing!

Good Times!~
