CosRx Holy Moly Snail Mask

Review: CosRx Holy Moly Snail Mask ★★★★☆

CosRx is a skincare company that comes up with fuss-free, simple products suitable for all skin types. This is their first and only sheet mask (as of date of publication) and has quickly become a cult favorite in the Asian Beauty community.

This mask claims to plump and hydrate with ginseng, snail mucin and hyaluronic acid. I love how short and simple the ingredients list was, great for sensitive skin peeps like me.

$13.22 for a 5-pack on Amazon.

Before masking

My skin is feeling slightly dry and mildly irritated today. I’ve cleansed, toned, and exfoliated my skin. Find out how I normally prep my skin for masking.

Essence

Essence was watery and felt soapy. I was surprised to see 21ml of essence instead of the usual 23ml. There wasn’t a scent at first but when I stuck my nose into the packet, I think I detected a faint ginseng scent.

The 100% rayon sheet mask was dripping all over the place when I took it out of the cute little square packet. It was a pity since it contains lesser than the usual amount of essence. Every drop is precious! The material felt thick and stiff, it also had a peachy pink tinge from camellia oil.

During masking

Fit was perfect for me. Adherence was great where areas were flat, not so much around the nose and mouth areas. I had this on for about 40 mins, it did tingle just ever so slightly around my sensitive areas for the first 10 mins. The mask was already drying out at this point, I probably shouldn’t have waited this long. Perhaps the dripping coupled with the lesser than usual amount of essence could not withstand my usual length of masking.

After masking

It did take some patting for the remaining essence to absorb and dry down to a semi-matte finish. My skin is well hydrated, even and alot less red. No brightening but my fine lines were indeed less obvious. All I needed was a light moisturizer and the effects lasted a whole day and till the next morning.

Below is a side by side comparison of the before and after pictures.

Now I know why it’s a cult favorite. Highly recommended​ especially for sensitive skin peeps and will repurchase!
