REVIEW: COSRX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence
Snail mucin, snail slime or snail secretion is known for being antimicrobial, antioxidant-rich, emollient, and contains collagen and elastin, among other things. This skin-loving ingredients makes a great natural moisturizer, and also have long-term anti-aging, skin-smoothing, and wound-healing benefits.
As a longtime snail fan, I’ve tried several popular Korean snail products. However, the COSRX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence is the probably the snailiest of all the snail products I’ve tried. Don’t worry, no snails were harmed in the process of making this essence!
The COSRX snail essence boast an incredible 96% snail secretion filtrate. It is, in other words, almost pure snail goo.
It’s much thicker than most snail products I’ve ever come across. But since it’s water-based, it absorbs quickly into the skin and doesn’t clog my pores.
Good news for sensitive skin types, this essence has zero fragrance with no added coloring!
$25 for 100ml. And worth every penny.
This COSRX snail essence gets rid of dryness, calms irritation, and makes my face feel smoother and healthier. As the product sinks in your skin, the initial cooling, refreshing sensation turns into a deep hydration. After two weeks of use, my skin feels so much more plumper and softer. And like all good essences, it’ll make your skin look brighter and glowy!
I would recommend this COSRX snail essence for ALL skin types. Oily skin types will benefit from this because it’s water-based and will hydrate your skin without clogging your pores. It’s perfect for dry skin because it helps your skin retain moisture, while nourishing and protecting it. It’s also good for sensitive skin types because of the no-nonsense ingredient list and no added fragrance. Totally holy-grail worthy!
