Review: Timeless Truth Snail Extract Derm-Revival Mask ★★★★☆

Timeless Truth is a Taiwanese brand and they make some of my favorite sheet masks. Read my reviews on other Timeless Truth sheet masks here.

This mask claims to anti-age by brightening, hydrating and firming skin with snail extract. Snail extract contains active ingredients to heal and repair damaged skin and tighten pores.

I don’t see snail mucin listed as one of the ingredients but I do see elements of it like hyaluronic acid and glycosaminoglycans. This also contains methylisothiazolinone, a potentially sensitizing ingredient.

$15.98 for a 5-pack on Amazon.

Before masking

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

Material

Out of the packet, I caught an awful, awful smell. It expires in 2019 and doesn’t smell stale so I know it’s not rotten. It’s hard to describe the scent, hmm, like a mixture of blood and baby milk powder? I’m bad with describing non-generic smells, just know that it’s bad.

The sheet was sandwiched between a plastic backing and a thick paper backing. The material was super thin and soft, almost like Annie’s Way silk mask.

Essence

Essence was watery clear and in abundance. It’s not gooey like typical snail masks.

During masking

Fit was weird, but since the material was so soft, I was able to manipulate it with ease. Mouth hole was too small, it was literally just a slit. The sheet was also too wide for my face, I folded the sides frontwards to prevent it from covering my scalp. There was also a slight nose tent.

Adherence was great. Good news, the stench dissipated about 10 mins in. I had this on for 30 mins, it was starting to dry out.

After masking

After massaging the essence in, I looked in the mirror and gasped! My skin looked perfect! Bright, smooth, not red and PIH lightened, as if I had a layer of translucent powder on. Essence dried down matte. The only gripe I have was the insufficient hydration for my combo-dry skin. But nothing a little moisturizer can’t solve. The effects last a whole day and 50% of it was still present the next morning.

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

I’d reckon this is great for under makeup and hot days. The effects are very similar to the Bee Venom variety. Highly recommended and will repurchase! Check out more Timeless Truth reviews here.
