Yup, you read that title right. I’m reviewing something that has snail extract and I have to tell you… I freaking LOVE IT! It’s the Mizon Multi Function Formula All In One Snail Repair Cream. It’s made in Korea and ever since I saw this Korean “mom” who had the best skin I have ever seen in my entire life, I have been slightly obsessed with figuring out what Koreans use to have such beautiful skin!
*Do you see the difference in my left and right hand? My left hand has that matte, hydrated look while my right is dry dry dry…
The cream is more in between a serum and a cream. It’s a bit slimy feeling, which is weird only because the word “snail” is in it. I have been using it for the last month and I really love it! After application my skin isn’t shiny and is almost matte. Then I put on my normal night cream and off to bed I go. If you have really oily skin, you can skip your night cream. The product suggests that you put it on after washing your face morning and night. Sometimes I don’t like to put too much on my face in the morning because I don’t want it to interfere with my foundation.
I feel like my pores are shrinking a bit and my skin just looks better. My skintone is definitely more even. Here’s a true (TMI) story – so the other night I had a small pimple on my face that popped on its own. Gross, I know. Well, I expected there to be a scab the next day but nope. It was already healed over. Don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t completely healed. It was still red but there wasn’t that dried scab that happens sometimes when you have an open wound on our face.
I have already gotten compliments on my skin from my friends asking me what I have been using. Even me, who is my biggest critic has to admit – my skin looks pretty damn good right now and it’s because of this snail cream. I already bought a new one just so that I have the backup when I run out.
Final thoughts: LOVE LOVE LOVE. It’s weird that there’s snail mucus extract but you know what, you’ll quickly get over it. If you are ever going to listen to me on ONE thing on this blog – it’s this stuff. Seriously, try this stuff out. 5/5
Price: $14.09 | Amazon.com (You can buy it at Target, but for some reason it’s $38.00 and from what I can tell, both products are the same)
