I had this sheet mask waiting in my ‘to review’ pile and it had been in there for so long that I had almost forgotten about it. It seems like life gets so busy lately that sometimes we just need to take a step back and relax – which basically means we should all be masking. I’ve gotten some people interested in sheet masks (and kbeauty, which I never shut up about) and so two nights ago, my work colleagues ended up in a group chat sheet mask session. While everyone was making use of the masks that I’d shared around (you can see the pile on my Instagram), I took the opportunity to pick this one up!
This is a 24K Gold Snail Mask that I was sent a while ago from Elizavecca and, from what I can see on their website, is meant to be used as a daily mask pack to hydrate and refresh a tired complexion (which is great, since I am always tired), as well as having anti-wrinkle benefits.
The packaging and concept didn’t excite me much as it seemed to be a fairly standard product, but the ingredients were decent:
- Snail slime filtered water 1000pm
- 24K gold
- Witch Hazel extract
- Grapefruit extract
I’m keeping this short and brief, so just read on for the verdict!
The mask sheet was a fairly standard cotton mask, but it was sufficiently thick (not as thin as the Elizavecca Power Ringer Masks which have a tendency to stretch out) so it stayed on the skin very easily and also smoothed out to be a really great fit. There was no noticeable scent and, while the instructions say to leave it on for around 15 minutes, I got maybe 20–25 minutes before the mask was mostly dry. There was a great cooling feeling when I put it on too and the mask was super saturated!
Once I took it off, I was absolutely blown away with the results! I really didn’t expect that what seemed like a standard sheet mask would have given me such great results. Aside from being super hydrated, my complexion was significantly brightened as well and I immediately looked more awake and rested because of it.
The effects were still visible the next morning but weren’t as dramatic, so I think that this would be a great mask to either use in the morning (if you’re a special person who has the time) or for special events. I only had one of these, so I was unable to test if the effects of the product would be even more evident if used daily, but I definitely want to get my hands on a bunch of them to try out!
Here’s the verdict!
SO WHAT IS IT?
A snail and 24K gold mask
- Great material and fit
- No scent
- Highly saturated
- Evident and immediate brightening results
- Great hydration
- Packaging is a bit lacklustre
- PACKAGING | 2/5
- PRICE POINT | 4/5
- HYDRATION | 4/5
- BRIGHTENING | 5/5
OVERALL RATING? 7.5/10
WOULD I RECOMMEND?
These are currently selling on the Elizavecca website for 20,000 won for a pack of 10, which breaks down to be a pretty decent price for these results. I definitely recommend checking them out – especially if you’re in need of hydration and brightening. Although the overall rating dropped to 7.5, it is actually only because of the average packaging and the product is actually really great!
