NEW YEAR ! NEW PRODUCT REVIEW . COSRX ADVANCED SNAIL 96 MUCIN POWER ESSENCE
For the first product review of 2017, I thought it was befitting to post about one of my new favorite Korean beauty product; COSRX snail 96 MUCIN POWER ESSENCE. For anyone new to my blog, you can click here for my previous post 10 step Korean Beauty skincare routine where I share the benefits of each step.
WHAT IS ADVANCED SNAIL 96 MUCIN POWER ESSENCE (CLAIM)
Advanced snail gel lotion protects the skin from moisture loss and keeps skin smooth, and healthy without the use of heavy oils
SNAIL SECRETION FILRATE: provides solution for skin with damages, great for dark skin tones and sagging skin.
BETAINE: a humectant and a fantastic skin conditioner. It is used to build product viscosity and a foam booster.
SODIUM HYLURONATE: used as a humectant to increase moisture in the skin.
PANETHOL: it imparts a nonirritant, moisturizing and conditioning feel and promotes normal skin cells turnover and wound healing. Panethol also protects the skin against sunburn and provides relief for existing sunburn.
HOW TO USE IT
Double cleanse your skin. Pat dry.
This essence has a gel like consistency so the recommended way to apply this would be lightly massaging a couple pumps into skin.
Follow with your serums, moisturizer and always finish with a sunscreen
HOW LONG DID I TEST THE PRODUCT?
October 2016 to Jan 1 2017
All skin types and all ethnicities
Clear bottle with a pump dispenser. It is really sturdy, my 10-month-old threw this bottle everywhere and it never spilled or cracked once.
Yes, it will definitely be added to my skincare product rotation
After testing this product for over 2 months, I am happy to report that there are no CONS to mention so far which is huge. It is not officially a Krème de la Krème of skincare product yet but I get the feeling it’s not far off from being put in that category.
I would like to say Happy New Year to everyone who started this blog journey with me last year. I wish you all a pleasant year. Please don’t forget to share via, twitter or any other social media handle you use and please leave comments below about the review or any skincare related question would love to hear from you.
- It is extremely hydrating
- Great for anti-aging; my skin looks a lot firmer and tighter since incorporated snail mucin extract in my routine.
- This is excellent for people living in tropical countries like Nigeria because it contains panethol which protects the skin against sunburn and soothes already existing burns.
- It also saved my skin during the current winter months. It soothes and leaves my skin moisturized even before my moisturizer.
- Not greasy or heavy on my face.
- Never broke me out or irritated my skin once
- A little goes a long way; I started using this product in October and I am not even close to the half way mark.
- The price point is reasonable
