I've been into Korean skincare lately. After being sold out forever, Sephora stocked some Tony Moly masks and the ingredients are, uh, interesting?

Tony Moly, besides being ADORABLE, seems legitimately nice. I've been using Dr. Jart+ and I like it but, fuck, how can you say no to hand cream in the shade of a roly poly panda? That's right, you can't.

So while one Dr. Jart+ mask is $7.50, Sephora is selling Tony Moly ones two for the same price. So hell yeah. Until I flipped it over.

Snail Secretion? I... I just... that isn't a thing, right? That's not a thing. Is that a thing?

I mean, do they just get a bunch of snails and like... milk them like... tiny cattle or...? I was hoping they don't kill them and they get the... secretions... humanely... Then I realized that made me sound like the crazy snail lady from Parks and Recreation.

I am probably going to still put this on my face because at least I get to lay in bed and listen to a podcast and have Eldritch Time to myself when I use one of these masks but... snails. Huh.
