Snail Bee High Content Mask Pack
4.0
Created with Sketch.

a month ago

This is my most solid, reliable, workhorse sheet mask and I've been buying it going on 4-5 years now. For reference, I have dry/dehydrated skin with occasional redness, flakiness on my forehead, and hormonal acne. This is a standard paper sheet mask that runs you about $2 per sheet, pretty affordable all things considered. It is well soaked in essence, and the material is pretty thick so you can have it on for a good 20-30 minutes before it starts to dry out. The sheet does not fit that well on my face, though, so the upper lip & sides of the nose do not get great contact with the mask. There are flaps from the eye holes that can fold down and provide a bit of extra essence/padding as well. I do not detect any scent with the mask and it feels really gentle and soothing while it is on the face. Usually there is a good amount of essence left when the sheet is "dry", and there is a small amount in the pouch if you want to spread it on your face/neck too. After the sheet is removed my skin feels softened and well hydrated, and any redness I may have from the day or from earlier skincare steps is usually soothed. The next day, I can tell my skin is brightened and the tone is evened out. It doesn't have any miraculous effects on texture, scarring, or acne, but it is a good maintenance mask and has good results given the price and accessibility.

Snail Bee High Content Steam Cream

A tacky thick white unscented cream. Texture is interesting, it feels like a cross between a thick gel and a heavy oil-based cream. It needs to be massaged in well to absorb, otherwise it sits heavily on the face. Its mostly based on 64% snail gel, then glycerin, then olive oil based fats...and sits on the skin like you'd expect from those ingredients. Very sticky and tacky, wet, and slightly greasy. It feels cooling on my skin as it dries. Then after 10 minutes my skin feels tight, almost as if it has a mask on, yet feels tacky and stick to the touch. I have combo skin, and it doesn't work for either area, in fact it makes each area feel worse. My normal cheeks feel tight and uncomfortable. While my slightly oil T-Zone becomes super oily and greasy feeling. Too sticky and shiny and makes my makeup break down for day, not hydrating enough for cheeks at night. My skin looks a bit dull and lifeless after using this for a while. My best guess is its for dry skin layered with other more hydrating products.

I use this as an essence, 1 squirt in my hand then pressed into my skin. I like how no frills Benton products are. The BHA is very mild so this can be used morning and night. Very nice as an essence, I will repurchase.
