Ostia Snail Jade Pure Essence Skin Gel Mask

Now this mask was a surprise. I thought it was hydrogel, but apparently… skin gel is not hydrogel. It’s some cotton-gel hybrid alien skin. Kidding about the alien part, obviously. That said, this mask had some pros and it had some cons. And at the end of the day, the Ostia Snail Jade Pure Essence Skin Gel Mask ($4.99) was just an OK mask.

Ingredients would be more exciting if the snail secretion was more than 0.1%!
Also, there is no Jade in the mask! -_-
The mask was drenched in essence and was very slippery
The cotton-gel hybrid mask (at least that’s what it felt like to me)

Alright so what I liked about the mask:

  • Soaked in lots of essence and a lot left over in the package. I rubbed it all over my neck, front and back.
  • I liked the way it felt on my face.
  • My complexion was brightened for a spell and my face felt soft and supple.
  • The mask fit my face quite well, except my nose. I have yet to find a mask that will cover it along with the rest of my face.

What could have been better:

  • The mask was quite slippery; I was trying to do other things around the house but it kept sliding down my face. I eventually just had to sit down and let it just work.
  • The price was pretty high for this mask. I purchased it in store at oo35mm in New York’s Chinatown. If this were a hydrogel mask and produced great results, I wouldn’t complain about the price but this mask performed just like any other brightening sheet mask.

And with that, this mask is extremely hard to find. Not too mad about that since I don’t see myself repurchasing anyway. I would be interested in other skin gel masks though.

    I've actually NEVER seen or heard of this brand! Sorry to hear it's just OK considering the price. I was also thinking it'd be a bit fancier than a sheet mask!

      Neither had I! It did make me aware of skin gel though but that's about it!
