I am in a fabulous Korean Beauty and Skin Care group on Facebook. The ladies leave excellent recommendations and while I don't get to try everything that tempts me, once in a while I have spotted a product that I just had to try!
This week's mask, the NRK Snail Essence Intense Hydra Repair Mask was exactly that for me - a must try! I found a bundled deal online and splurged, hehe. I am happy to report that this was a great purchase!
Snail essence is a very popular ingredient in K-Beauty, including to generally just help repair damaged skin. In case you're wondering, snail essence feels no different than any other essence that I have tried and there is no weird odor.
I added a couple drops of my Purito Vitamin C Serum before and after mask application. Love this stuff, but I am not sure if I love it enough to buy a full size or just keep my fingers crossed for more samples from eopenmarket.
And cue the goofy face pic:
I am a huge fan of this mask!
As I mentioned, it has no difference in smell or feel with snail essence being the major ingredient. It smells very clean and nice, not odd at all. I dislike the very wide nose opening though, and I felt like I had to tug it around my face quite a bit to get an ideal fit. It stayed pretty moist for the full 20 mins and my skin felt SO soft after. I followed it with Vit C serum and moisturizer for softness that stayed until the next day.
In sum, I def recommend the NRK Snail Essence Intense Hydra Repair Mask.
