Disappointing Product Number 2-Dr Organic Snail Gel Moisture Mask

Hello My Lovelies

When I popped in to my local Holland & Barrett I saw that they stocked the Dr Organic Snail Gel Moisture Mask and the uniqueness of it all made me want to give it a try.


A couple of Saturday evenings ago my sister, mum and I had a pamper evening and so I grabbed the snail mask and we started to lather the clear gel on. Within a minute it started to tingle for all of us but we decided to leave it on for a another minute or so- it's then I noticed my sisters face was bright red and she said it felt really sore, she immediately washed it off but her face was left bright red and in pain.



The redness stayed like this for a few hours. My mum and I's face was just as sore but not as red but this was still uncomfortable.


As you can imagine we didn't expect this from a face mask and for all of us to have an allergic reaction to it. This is one face mask I wouldn't ever use again, I would definately suggest that if you have sensitive skin that you avoid using it or use with caution! I'm so disappointed that this face mask was an epic fail as it sounded like a fab product.

Have you tried this face mask from Dr organic?

Till next time,
                   Tori.

  3. Exact same thing happened to me this morning. Had to lather on some Sudocrem to ease the redness. It's concerning that it seems to be happening to others too.

    1. Hi Aoife
      It took a couple of hours for their skin to return to a normal colour. I can't believe it's happened to you too!
      Thanks for leaving a comment and I hope your face is better.

      I have no idea why this product does this to our skin but it's horrid isn't it! I hope your face is ok now.

  6. Dear Tori,
    Thank you for this post, I 've just experienced the same. I've put the mask on and started to feel a burning sensation after 5 minutes or so. I immediately washed my face off and kept doing that for a while to ease the burning. My face looked as if I've had a severe sunburn (like on your pictures). I ve put a soothing cream om my face and after 45minutes I can see that the redness is disappearing. I hope that it will go back to normal by the morning. To conclude: I will never ever use this mask again!!
