A while back I had posted a small haul on the products I had purchased from the Dr. Organic range (you can read the post here). The Snail Gel mask being the most unusual product and one that I had never tried before or had heard of, was something I had promised everyone that I would review, so without further ado, here it is! 

The mask itself contains Helix Aspersa Muller Secretion (that's a mouthful to say!) which is a substance that snails produce to protect and regenerate it's shell and skin when damaged. Please note that this also means that the snail itself is not harmed for the making of the product. Ingredients such as Jojoba Seed Oil, Sunflower Seed Oil, May Chang Oil, Lemongrass Oil, Lime Oil, Macadamia Seed Oil and Sweet Almond Oil are also included. Essentially snail gel or cream is a well-known solution for moisture, as well as healing, soothing, purifying and working as a remarkable anti-ageing product.

When first opening the sachet I was expecting to see a clear, slimy and sticky substance ( like the trail a snail leaves when whizzing around ), I was entirely wrong and found an extremely thick, creamy texture, very very similar to the Coconut Oil Moisturiser that I had also purchased from the Dr. Organic range. When applying the face mask to my skin, I found the fragrance quite overpowering and exceedingly citrusy due to the Lemongrass and Lime Oil, this was a bit off putting, and got a little sickly after a while. I left the mask on for approximately 15-20 mins.

The directions on the back of the packaging state: Use once a week as part of your cleansing regime. Apply face mask evenly over whole face avoiding eyes and lips. Relax for 10 minutes and allow to dry, then remove with warm water or a damp cloth/flannel.

I left the product on for a longer amount of time due to there being far too much in the sachet provided. I feel that there could've been up to five uses, maybe even more depending on the amount you decide to use. Due to the packaging fault being similar to a ketchup sachet, once ripped open there's no going back. It would be impossible to store and reuse any of the leftover mask, I tried to use as much as possible, but the smell was just.. yuck. I used a warm flannel to wash off the mask, as the consistency was thick, I probably wouldn't suggest trying to remove the mask with just your hands and water.

My skin was extremely soft and radiant the next few days. It did it's job, but it wasn't a product that I fell in love with, and not something that I would re-purchase again and again. I could still smell the product on my face the next day, even after showering which was horrendous, and due to a few of it's faults it left me a little bit disappointed. I don't think I would purchase the Snail Mask again, unless my skin desperately lacked in moisture. 

Would you ever try a product containing Snail Gel?
