I decided to buy the COSRX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence as I’ve been only hearing good things about it. Usually, I’m buried under the more well known Korean road shop brands and have not really ventured further than that! But since I’ve been watching a heck of a lot of youtube, I’ve been brainwashed into thinking that the COSRX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence is a must try!
COSRX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence
What is the COSRX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence used for?
The main selling point for this essence is the Snail mucin! The Snail mucin is said to heal damaged skin and improve its elasticity. I wrote about the snail trend a couple of years ago but never committed myself to trying it out!
What the heck is Mucin?
Well, I think it’s a much nicer way of saying snail slime. If you were wondering what the ’96’ stands for in the product title, it is there because the essence is 96% snail slime and the 4% is everything else.
Here’s a bit more info on the Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence and its uses.
What are the ingredients?
Snail Secretion Filtrate, Betaine, Butylene Glycol,1,2-Hexanediol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Panthenol, Arginine, Allantoin, Ethyl Hexanediol, Sodium Polyacrylate, Carbomer, Phenoxyethanol.
Is it any good?
I’ve been using the essence for a couple of weeks now. I use it straight after I apply toner on my skin. I think I have to wait a bit longer to see whether it improves any scarring but I really think my skin looks better. I have noticed that it looks a lot plumper! I’m not sure why that is, maybe because it is feeling more hydrated?
The one word that just kept popping out at me is, ‘I have a beluga head’. Of course, it’s not as drastic as an actual beluga whale, but I did notice my forehead seemed plumper and bouncier.
So what’s the conclusion?
I never really included an ‘essence’ into my skincare routine as I want to try and keep it as simple as possible however I think whatever this snail essence is doing, it’s all good so I need to keep using it! I’m really keen to try out more COSRX products to see if they are just as effective. I will definitely be buying this again.
