[Review] My Scheming Snail Essence Hydrating Mask

Good morning, all!! Last night I tried out another My Scheming mask, this time the Snail Essence Hydrating Mask


By the way, do any of you ever follow those instructions and apply it with the backing on first? I always take the backing off and then apply it to my face.

Inside the packet:

  It comes with a perforated plastic backing:

My BEFORE face, cleansed & toned:


My mask face:

It’s not as translucent as their L-Ascorbic Acid mask, but still pretty translucent. It’s also pretty thin material compared to other mask brands, like My Beauty Diary.

My AFTER face, in the morning:


I liked this mask! However, I do think that the My Beauty Diary 2-Step Snail Repair Mask Pack was more effective in terms of moisturizing, but I don’t know if that’s a fair comparison since that’s a 2-Step mask, really. Still, for just the mask itself, I think I’d repurchase, but it’d be like a treat. I like the packaging (SO CUTE), and I like the material of the mask and the fit on my face. BUT if I was really looking for more bang for my buck, I’d go for the MBD Snail Repair Mask Pack, hands down!

Have you guys tried any My Scheming masks? Any recommendations?

  1. Another amazing review! Thank you! This may seem a little random, but would you mind recommending me a good facial toner? I have combination to oily skin, do you know any products that would be good for me? I feel like you are the skincare expert, so I need your advice! Thanks!

    1. Thank you, I’m flattered! Haha, but I’m not an expert by a long shot – I’ve just been accumulating personal experience since August 😉

      I can give you some suggestions based on what other people say are good toners for combo skin (I have normal/dry skin so mine might not work for you) – BUT you have to always keep in mind that everyone’s skin is different and YMMV. What works for someone else’s combo skin might not work for yours!

      One that I hear mentioned is the Etude House Wonder Pore Toner, but if you’re sensitive to alcohol you should avoid it.

      Another mention for oily skin that I’ve seen is the Etude House Fresh mal:gem smooth/er toner.

      A last suggestion – some people mentioned that their skin was producing a lot of oil because it turned out their skin was dehydrated. How’s your skin’s moisture doing? Do you use a hydrating toner? Do you use a sleeping pack? You could try the Hada Labo Gokujyn hyaluronic lotion (it’s a toner, but called a lotion) – it’s a humectant moisturizer, meaning it pulls in the moisture from the air or products on your skin. So if you use it before a face mask, it’ll help absorb the essence better.

      Let me know if you find something that works! It’s hard to recommend things because everyone is always a little different. (⌒-⌒; ) It’s a process to find what works for you, but I hope this helped a little!

  2. I love this snail mask from My scheming! I find the fit to be much better than MBD on me so I always reach for these over the MBD ones. It’s only about 30 cents more expensive than MBD (at least if I were to buy these masks locally) and I’d be willing to part with 30 cents for a better fit haha

    Also it always amazes me how much serum is left in the package after I use the mask!
