Beauty Box Product Review: MISSHA Super Aqua Cell Renew Snail Hydro-Gel Mask

Updated on November 23, 2017

How I got this mask

This mask came in the November Beauty Box from Target. The beauty box cost $7 and this mask usually costs $6 on its own. That is out of my price range for a mask, as I usually will not pay more than $2 for a mask product (and that takes into consideration sales and/or coupons). If you don't already get the beauty box from Target, I find this one to usually be a GREAT deal. You can check at the beginning of the month on the Target website and see EXACTLY what you are going to get in the box. You do NOT have to have a subscription, AND each beauty box comes with a $3 off $15 coupon in the box. These are great to pair with upcoming Target deals at the stores.

FYI - What my skin and hair is like

My skin and hair are SUPER DUPER DRY. When I don't use moisturizing products, my skin flakes and peels off, I am incessantly ashy, and my wrinkles are much more pronounced.

When I don't condition, my hair is brittle and dry. I get the "flyaways" for days... in fact, I only wash my hair twice a week and TRY to just wash once every 5 days if I can go without getting sweaty. When my hair is not conditioned, my hair is brittle and breaks. I have a thick headful of very very fine hair.

When reading my review of this product, please keep these things in mind as your mileage may vary if you have different circumstances.

All about the MISSHA "snail mask"

This is one of the newer style masks that isn't a cream or sticky gel, but the product is on an actual mask that has the mouth and eyes cut out of a thin, disposable cloth material. This one comes in between two plastic sheets, and the instructions are to peel it off of these plastic sheets. This is difficult because the snail "stuff" is VERY slippery. Once I got the plastic peeled off, this particular mask was very easy to apply to my face. Sometimes I have a problem getting the mask to line up well with my mouth, eyes, and nose all at once, but this one was the best I've ever used as far as actually fitting my face. It is in two pieces, so it will fit many different sized/shaped faces.

The smell was... well, interesting. It did not smell like a beauty product I have ever or would ever use. Actually, it did not smell like a beauty product at all. Maybe it smelled like a snail. I am really not sure. It wasn't terribly unpleasant, but I did not ever get used to the smell as long as I had it on my face.

The instructions said to leave it on the face for 20-40 minutes. I left it on for 30. Had I known how WONDERFULLY this product would hydrate my skin, I would have left it on for the full 40 minutes. During the 30 minutes, the mask did not slip or try to slide off my face.

Once I took the mask off, I rubbed the remaining "snail stuff" (I don't know what to call it, but it is rather slimy) into my skin. It seemed to give my skin a "cold" sensation. Once it dried, my face already started to feel very soft. The next morning, I was very impressed. I always use hyaluronic acid and a night cream before bed, and my skin feels decent but still a little thirsty in the mornings. After using this mask, the next morning, my face still felt magically moist and soft. It had lost that "cold" sensation. This mask gave me cause to consider spending $6 a week to have this once a week. In fact, on the MISSHA website, they are selling them for $3.40 for Black Friday, so I may ask for Santa to stick a few of those in my stocking.

Quick Poll!

Could you deal with an unpleasant smell in order to improve your skin?

Conclusion

This mask is awesome. It left my skin feeling magnificent - dare I say, YOUTHFUL. The smell was not great, but I could deal with that smell to have skin that feels and looks like it did.

Is it worth $6? MAYBE... if you are not a cheapskate. For me, I will stick to purchasing this when it is on sale or if I happen to get a coupon for it.

I GIVE THIS MASK...

4 stars for MISSHA Super Aqua Cell Renew Snail Hydro-Gel Mask
