Snail slime treatments are huge in Korea right now, and now this interesting ingredient is slowly popping up in Western beauty products, too. Whether you heard of it or not, it’s proven to be more than just a new sketchy beauty trend, and looks like it’s here to stay. Snail slime provides natural regenerative properties and creates a thin protective layer on top of the skin that seals in moisture while still allowing the pores to breathe.
Recently I purchased a bunch of Ciracle Snail Hydrogel Masks from Wishtrend, and after using them a few times, I realized that I had to share a brief review with you, because they worked well for me.
The mask itself is made with hydrogel, which is the best type of sheet masks currently available. This material is used for treating burn victims, it’s the kind of special gel that creates a barrier between the skin and the environment, ensuring nothing gets in or out, and also helps the ingredients absorb better without being exposed to oxygen.
Ciracle Snail Hydrogel Mask comes in two pieces of clear hydrogel, making it really easy to apply and spread over entire surface of the face, and also helps the sheets adhere to the skin better. It wasn’t completely drenched in solution, so it stayed put instead of sliding around [I really hate it when some masks do that!].
The mask provides lasting cooling/moisturizing effect, which I found especially helpful after a long day in the sun. It really reduced the redness in my forehead and cheek area, and replenished the lost moisture. I felt like the solution really sank deep into the pores, because that comfortable feeling remained even after I washed my face.

Overall, I’m very happy with Ciracle Snail Hydrogel Mask and really glad I bought a 4-pack. These hydrogel masks are not cheap, mainly because gel sheets are more expensive to produce than simply soaking a piece of paper or cotton in solution. From my personal experience, I concluded that hydrogel masks are the most effective kind, so their higher price point is probably justified [at least in my mind].
