Happy new year! This is my first post in 2017 and I feel really relaxed after two weeks of vacation. As you noticed I was mostly unactive on my blog except for occasional Instagram pictures, but now I’m happy to be back with tons of reviews…starting with the Wish Formula The Mask With Snail Milk Lotion. So I know that many of you love sheet masking and even more love snail filtrate containing products. Keep reading to know more abot this sheet mask which combnines both:
Wish Formula is one of these Korean brands I know for quite, but didn’t try many products from them. My favorite product so far was Wish Formula C200 Bubble Peeling Pad and I still have a couple of products from this brand waiting here to be reviewed. Wish Formula has two different versions of their Wish Formula The Mask Sheet Masks, one with Centella Honey Fermented Serum and the one shown here with Snail Milk Lotion.
Before I scare those of you off who never have heard of snail secretion filtrate as ingredient for skincare: Snail Mucus claims to be rich in hyaluronic acid and antioxidants and thus help our skin to regenerate stimulating the formation of collagen, elastin and dermal components that repair the signs of photoaging. Also, it claims to minimize the damage generated by free radicals that are responsible for premature skin aging (there is a wikipedia entry for snail mucus, too.). The snail mucus is not obtained by harming the snails, but it is collected is so-called snail farms.
The Wish Formula The Mask With Snail Milk Lotion is directed towards protecting and strengthening irritated skin. Furthermore ingredients like aloe and hyaluronic acid provide the skin with hydration and have a refreshing effect. The ingredients are listed in English on the backside of the sachet in which the sheet mask is packed. By the way, I’m in love with the delicate illustration of the sachet with the simple flowers and the snail, leaving it still quite minimalistic. The ingredients list is also short which I love, too:
Water, Dipropylene Glycol, Glycerin, Apricot Kernel Oil, Snail Secretaion Filtrate, Polyglutamic Acid, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice Powder, Centella Asiatica Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Morus Alba Bark Extract, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizae, Allantoin, Sodium Polyacrylate, Polyacrylate-13, Polyisobutene, Polysorbate 20, Chlorphenesin, Methylparaben, Parfum
I added the list to COSDNA here and you can check the single ingredients there. Mostly green labelled ingredients and the only potential acne irritant could be the apricot kernel oil.
The Wish Formula The Mask With Snail Milk Lotion is a thick cotton sheet mask soaked with a lotion-type milky essence. It is packed without any additional plastic in the sachet. There is plenty of essence in the sachet after taking out the mask, so your sheet mask won’t dry out while storing it for a longer period, and also you can use the left-over essence on your arms and neck, and so on. Don’t waste all these moisturizing ingredients! I personally like cotton sheet masks slightly better than hydro gel masks although hydrogel masks tend to have a better fit. Although this mask from Wish Formula doesn’t fit perfectly on my face, it stays on its place and doesn’t keep sliding and falling around while wearing it for the recommended 15-20 minutes. After the time the skin feels moisturized and refreshed and even calmed. And the sheet mask didn’t dry out at all!
Thumbs up for Wish Formula The Mask With Snail Milk Lotion! I love the essence of this sheet mask and I love the thick cotton fabric. Furthermore this ingredients list is perfect contining mainly the basic ingredients needed. Definitely a repurchase product for me and it provides a ot of hydration and moisture. I saw that they also sell the mask in a cardbox of 10 sachets, but also as big box containing 50 sheet masks (not packed separately). Did you try this mask from Wish Formula already? What is your opinion on snail mucus?
