Hello SMAs (formerly known as sheet mask addicts…shut up, I’m lazy XD):
Today we get back to our regularly scheduled MOTD posts yayyy! On a side note, I think I might just start saving haul posts for the weekends, or should I dedicate a day for hauls (there will be more in the coming weeks XD)? Any opinions on the matter would be much appreciated 😀
Today’s mask is from Korean company Dermal, who (I didn’t know this before) also makes the Purederm line of products too! I like their collagen eye patches :3 I bought this mask in a 16 piece multi pack on Amazon for $12 (with free shipping for Prime or for orders over $35), which comes out to $0.75 a piece! You know I love a good bargain. I’ve actually had these for awhile; I tried one from the pack (charcoal) a couple of weeks before I started the blog, and I remember it being decent. Not spectacular mind you, but I figured it was worth the per-piece price.
I’m in the last stages of my Epic Zit War, so I decided to select a mask with more regenerative/repairing elements because I figured that even the tiniest bit of whatever-says-will-help would be sufficient 😛
But I’m getting ahead of myself (again, as usual…)
The featured ingredient in this mask is snail mucus extract, or you may see it as Snail Secretion Extract (same shit, meng). Now, if you’re new to Asian beauty, you might be balking and saying what the fuck Deena??
Just listen to this: snail slime is a wonder substance. Have acne problems, blemishes that won’t go away, fine wrinkles annoying the shit out of you?? The snail slime has got your back. Legions of die hard Korean beauty fanatics cannot be wrong (dammit!), But you know snail slime must be a huge deal if even the American media is doing stories on it. Huh.
I personally wasn’t grossed out by its use in skin care when I heard about it; as a matter of fact it took me back to my childhood days of playing in the yard, catching snails and keeping them in old ice cream buckets where I would feed them lettuce. They were so cute! Even the slime trails were pretty; they’d leave shiny diamond trails all over the concrete, and it was lovely ^__^
Yadda, yadda, yadda; you’re prolly wondering now, did it help?? Sorry I’m rambling today… on to the review!

Mask details: The mask was surprisingly thick and dripping with essence. There was just enough left inside for me to do The Yoosh (rub it on my neck and boobs :P). It had a nice clean smell. I’m not sure what I expected it to smell like, but not as nice as it was, I tell you.
|I had a lot of fun with this 😛|
