Despite being interested in beauty products! I haven’t really been reading up on it much. So apparently people like putting Snail slime on their face! Snail beauty products really?
I don’t know how long this phenomenon has been going on for! Seems like another trend that came from Korea or Japan? I wonder if this will catch on in the UK? We were really slow on BB creams! I think the explosion has only just really started now.
I’m usually someone who can get excited about the latest trend! But I’m not sure I’m on board with the snail slime. Maybe if I stopped calling it slime for starters that would help.
Snailstreet (which is the first snail based brand I found on google) say it’s very popular in Japan.
What’s so special about snails though?
I have discovered the secret of snails! The story goes back to the 1980s, on a snail farm in Chile! The farmers there discovered that after handling the snails, their hands were left feeling baby soft! Cuts and other injuries also healed very quickly.
One of the worst feelings is accidentally stepping on a snail. Have you done that? I really thought they had one shell and that was it! But actually did you know they can regenerate their own shells? (I’m kind of hoping here that also includes when people step on them). Anyway these regenerating properties can also help repair human skin which is how the idea of snail beauty was born!
If you want to try some. Snailstreet actually ship worldwide! UK included (yes, because UK is part of the world.) I’m still not sure yet. I think I’m going just watch this space and see what happens.
Have you tried snail cream? How was it?
