Quote: What the Sheet did you just put on your face?
Alrighty, this is what you have been waiting for. What the Sheet, you put what on your face? Yep Snail mucin - AKA The slime snails leave in their wake. Before you think I am running around stealing snails from your grandmas garden and just rubbing that sheet on my face - actually yeah the rubbing that sheet on my face part it right.
Mucin is an amazing ingredient used to help fight Acne, rough skin, dry skin, angry sensitive skin... the list goes on. It contains ingredients like glycoproteins, hyaluronic acid, and glycolic acid. All which have amazing benefits for your skin. Mucin was first discovered Chilean snail breeders in the ’80s who marvelled at how soft their hands were from handling the snails. Why were they farming snails? Remember people eat them. Click here to read more about snail mucin which I highly recommend you do.
So back to why we are here, to review this sheet. There are plenty of snail sheets mask on the market, the majority of companies will boast at least one snail mask! So why Benton, this mask just keeps popping up everywhere. Boasting, to be made of pure cotton and soaked in snail mucin this mask is designed to be deeply nourishing and hydrate irritated skin. Bee venom extract helps improves skin tone and texture. Cool right? Well, let's see how we go.
REVEALING THE SHEET:
The packaging has a nice sturdy feel and is easy to open
There is no scent here if you are expecting garlic or an earthy smell, sorry to disappoint.
As there is no backing, it's a little tricky to open
Cotton feels nice and sturdy
Lots of essence, but not to the dripping point
USING THE SHEET:
I have snails slime on my face! Thats is the first thought that goes through my head. And about the last time, I think about it
I love that this mask has a cut out with an option to place the eye 'flaps' on my sockets so I can relax and close eyes
At about the 15 min mark, I can feel my skin is sucking up the essence from the mask.
Because this mask isn't overflowing with too much essence, it would be a good mask to leave on whilst moving around.
END RESULT AND FINAL THOUGHTS:
Okay wholey sheet, I am a snail mucin convert! My skin is supple (such a good use of this word). I am lucky not to have too much ache except 12X a year when the devil invades my face. I can 100% see myself busting out these masks then. I am deducting some overall points for unfolding the mask and it is just a little sticky at the end. I would recommend only uses this one at night, before bed.
