Skinfood Marine Food Gel Mask (Oyster) Review

Happy Tuesday my dolls!

I’m finally reviewing this mask! I got it in Andi’s giveaway a while back, and I loved it so much! So let me just tell you some of my first impressions of this mask!

Product Description from Skinfood:

A gel mask containing oyster, also called the milk of the sea for brighter skin from the inside out. Oysters are rich in vitamins and minerals which help destroy melanin pigment. This hydro-gel mask sheet delivers nutrients and minerals from the ocean to nourish skin and provides deep, long-lasting hydration.

Price: $5

Review

The claims for this product is that the oyster is for brighter skin. Oysters are rich in vitamins and minerals and they nourish skin and provide long-lasting hydration.

As I mentioned, I really loved it. I thought it was weird at first that it had so many little sheets tucked in between. Maybe it was supposed to make taking it out easier, but I had a hard time figuring it out because sheet masks are usually just folded into themselves.

Aside from that, this mask was a two-piece. It was also the first gel-mask I’ve ever tried and it felt super refreshing. I thought it fit my face well, a little large around the chin but overall a good fit. It didn’t slip off my face, it felt nice and cooling, especially during this summer heat. This mask is also great for sun-stressed skin.

I didn’t feel any irritation or dryness, in fact it was very hydrating. It does feel high-end and luxurious. I would definitely repurchase for a day when my skin really needs intense hydration. And though the mask is $5 I still consider it affordable, even for a one-time use.

The gel mask has a lot of serum, there was enough left over to rub all over my neck and decolletage. Instead of wiping off some of the serum, I allowed my skin to absorb it all in order to get the most hydration out of it. My skin felt amazing the next day and very hydrated.

I recommend trying it at least once!


Pros & Cons

Pros:

  • Contains oyster — rich in minerals & vitamins
  • Nourishes skin
  • Long-lasting hydration
  • Refreshing & cooling
  • Great for sun-stressed skin
  • Perfect for use during summer
  • Affordable — in my opinion!
  • Feels high-end & luxurious!
  • Brand is cruelty free!

Cons:

  • Price — might be expensive for some
  • Two-piece mask — some might not like it, I personally don’t mind
  • Mask was hard to take out of packaging

This mask was AMAZING and I think it’s the second or third product I try from Skinfood. After a little bit of research I found out that this brand is CF so that makes me super excited!! I will definitely be buying some more products from Skinfood!

  1. Sheet masks are the best! At least, for me, they seem easier and far less mess than wash-off or peel-off masks (and I’ve heard peel-off are actually bad for your skin?). This mask looks amazing! I love that it contains oyster for all those nutrients. $5 seems affordable to me, so I’ll have to look for one!! ❤

    1. That’s very true, they’re not as messy as the wash off ones which is why I love them lol. And really? I didn’t know they were bad for your skin, I don’t think I have any peel off ones but I did want to try a few lol.
      Maybe ulta sells it, if not try Sephora. I can’t think of another beauty store where they would sell this brand, but I could be wrong.

      1. Yeah, I heard it from a consultant at Mary Kay…that the peel-off masks damage your skin since they rip off your skin cells. BUT she could have also just been marketing their wash-off mask, so I’m not sure. I will have to look at Sephora for sure! 🙂
