Hey come back! Hear me out first. I can hear you all recoiling at the thought of snail gel on your face but it’s actually quite brilliant and you honestly won’t know you have snail trails on your skin. Dr Organics seems quite a popular range and one I’ve only come to recently. There’s a lovely selection to choose from such as Manuka Honey, Vitamin E, Lavender and Pomegranate. But I was really intrigued by snail gel excretion, yes. The snail gel range is anti-ageing (I hate that term), which means it helps to plump up skin, reduce the sign of wrinkles and well, just general wear and tear. I’m 38 so my skin is showing signs of ageing, and that’s ok, but it is nice to treat your skin.
The sachet gives a general helping of the mask. I was able to cover all of my face and neck liberally. The mask itself is a white, thick cream that smells of slime, I mean lime (sorry). After about 5 minutes on my sensitive, combination skin I do feel tingling so I’m not sure how those of you with really sensitive skin would do with this. After removal my skin is super smooth and genuinely feels plumped, and deeply cleansed. But what I like most about this is that the effects last for quite some time after. It’s a brilliant face mask, probably one of the best I’ve tried. I think this would suit most skin types but those with highly sensitive skin should be a bit wary, a test patch would be advisable.
The mask is jam packed full of great ingredients, here’s the full list:
Aloe barbadensis leaf juice, Aqua, Caprylic/capric triglyceride, Cetearyl alcohol, Glycerin, Glyceryl stearate citrate, Snail secretion filtrate, Glyceryl stearate, Simmondsia chinensis (Jojoba) seed oil, Macadamia ternifolia seed oil, Cocos nucifera (Coconut) oil, Isoamyl laurate, Prunus amygdalus dulcis (Sweet almond) oil, Prunus armeniaca (Apricot) kernel oil, Tocopherol, Helianthus annuus (Sunflower) seed oil, Xanthan gum, Glyceryl caprylate, Glucose, Sorbitol, Sodium glutamate, Urea, Sodium PCA, Glycine, Lactic acid, Hydrolyzed wheat protein, Panthenol, Chamomilla recutita (Chamomile) extract, Melilotus officinalis (Sweet clover) extract, Malva sylvestris (Mallow) leaf extract, Tilia cordata (Linden) extract, Achillea millefolium (Yarrow) extract, Altaea officinalis (Marshmallow) extract, Plantago lanceolata (Plantain) leaf extract, Artemisia umbelliformis extract, Litsea cubeba (May chang) oil, Cymbopogon schoenanthus (Lemongrass) oil, Citrus aurantifolia (Lime) oil, Sodium phytate, Sodium benzoate, Potassium sorbate, Citral, Limonene.
