Review: Nature Republic Snail Solution Mask Sheet – L-O-V-E

28 November 2015

The day after my 7-day experiment with the LuLuLun sheet masks, my skin was craving for a really good mask sheet, so I fell back on one of my favorites, Nature Republic Snail Solution Mask Sheet. I realized I haven’t wrote a review on it yet, so here it is!

Nature Republic Snail Solution Mask Sheet

I was introduced to this product when I received samples of it from a Nature Republic purchase. One use and it caught my attention. This is one of the instances when I’m thankful for samples to discover products I wouldn’t have tried otherwise! After my sample stash ran out (3 pieces), I wasted no time in purchasing more!

The key ingredient in this mask is snail filtrate (aka snail slime), and it does show. You can see the slightly gooey essence as you unfold the mask, but YOU KNOW THAT’S THE GOOD STUFF. The more the merrier!

It doesn’t feel slimy or uncomfortable on the face though, so no worries! No gross smell either. In fact, it’s lightly fragranced so no need to worry that your face will smell like snail excretion (what does that smell like anyway?)

Now for the mask fit (beware ugly masking selfie):

It’s a pretty good and comfortable fit! I’m also secretly pleased that my face is slightly smaller than what the Nature Republic designers thought was standard haha. Yay for cheap thrills and maximum skin coverage :D

I use the mask at night, and I wake up to awesomely soft, smooth and moisturized skin in the morning! Awesome, I tell you! It’s the kind where touching the skin will put a smile on your face and brightens your morning. And unicorns prance across the scene, while starlight and cosmic glitter descend from the heavens in celebration. Ok, maybe not the second part. But definitely the unicorns.

Verdict

One word: Love.

I love love LOVE this mask. I honestly can’t think of anything I dislike about this mask. Not all snail products work this beautifully with my skin, but this mask and my skin? They’re meant for each other. And who am I to deny their love? A definite keeper in my masks drawer!

Price

I bought it on eBay from this seller where it is sold in bundles of 3 for $3.62, inclusive of free shipping worldwide! Pretty awesome deal, I’d say!

      Hi Maya!
      I started loving this mask from when they still had the old packaging design but I agree this one looks a lot better!
      I’m curious to know what are some other masks you love?

    I love these sheet masks too! It feels soothing especially after a facial or microdermabrasion. Unfortunately nature rep only have these as samples and the ones we can purchase are hydrogel type which is kinda expensive. Anyway, i enjoy reading your review 😊

      Hmm, I don’t know where you’re from, but I was just in Korea last week and the Nature Republic stores there do sell these (in addition to the hydrogel ones).

      And even if you can’t get them in physical stores, there’s always online stores! I linked where I usually buy these online in the post above :)

    I love them! They’re great on my skin type (normal to oily) and tone (neutral skin).
