Etude House I Need You Snail Mask

I was looking through my remaining sheet masks when my eyes fell on this one. I had never used animal secretions as a beauty treatment, and I didn’t know what to expect. Would it work? Would it not work? Would it cause me to mutate and turn into a half woman/half snail creature? If if did I could just pitch a tent and charge admission.

Well, there was only one way to find out!

From Etude House: “this mask sheet contains snail mucus ingredient ( Snail Secretion Filtrate) that protects the skin’s natural barrier for smooth and elastic skin.”


I was expecting sliminess and unusual odors. Instead I discovered a soft, powdery scent and a lotion-like moisturizing solution.

I wore the mask for 10 minutes. At the 8 minute mark I felt a burning sensation. It wasn’t painful, really, but it was noticeable. I was able to continue wearing it for another two minutes. My skin wasn’t red or in any way affected by the burning.

This particular mask is meant to firm up skin. It did, in fact, firm up my skin. The results lasted about 2 hours on me. I think one would need to use this every few days to maintain the tightened effect.

Would you ever use snail goo on your face?

    I can’t stand when skin care products start to burn my face. I tried a snail sheet mask from Tony Moly and I really liked it!
