Hello, assalamualaikum ❤
Yes, Im back with another reviews for K-Skincare which is super popular among Snail-ist. In K-Skincare world, snail has been one of the most popular ingredients in their skincare line. They use snail mucin as anti aging skincare. Maybe, in Malaysia, we never heard of snail mucin filtrate in our local skincare, but in Korea, snail has become trend. We are still using typical aloe vera as healing ingredients/treatment ingredients in our skincare line. Unfortunately, I have bad ‘relationships’ with aloe vera as I allergic to aloe vera. So, I can’t use aloe vera for my skincare or facial treatment. Some people have super sensitives skin though. Thank God, finally I found another healing ingredients that works great for me. On my previous posts, I’ve wrote about how I love Cosrx Centella Alcohol Free Toner [centella is another popular healing ingredients in South Korea]. My skin loves these two babies;
- Snail Mucin
Today, Im gonna review about my favourite essences, which is Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essences ❤
Actually, I starts use this essence when I got a sample from Hermo.my when I ordered their items. I was so happy because finally I got to try this snail ‘things’. LOL
Yes, at first I quite hesitate to put this on my face, especially when I still have new burn scars. And I afraid this will irritate my skin [since it has 96% of snail mucin]. 96%? Wow! Thank God, my skin loveeeeeeeees the snail and in fact, my skin improves drastically when I put this every day [after toner].

p/s there are lots of research on benefits of filtrate snail mucin in facial treatments. its clinically proven to help repairs damaged skin.
Packaging : As usual, the packaging is so minimalist. But, I don’t mind though, as long as it does it job well. Whats great about its packaging is, it comes with a pump! I like it cause it is easier to get the products out. Its also hygienic.
As you can see the list of ingredients, snail secretion filtrate is on the top of it. It contains high extract of snail mucin which is 96%. Plus, this products has very minimal ingredients compared to other brands. So, low risk of irritations for your skin though. Overall, what I like most about Cosrx products are, they use minimal ingredients to prevent risks of irritations. I thinks that is why my skin reacts well to their products eventhough I have super sensitives skin.

“Real Power Essence raising the innate strength of the skin”
Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence is created from nutritious, low-stimulation filtered snail mucin and other great ingredients, in order to improve damaged skin.
The filtered snail mucin contained in Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence penetrates under the skin into the invisible, working against damaged skin.
This 96%-concentrate ingredient keeps you skin moist all day and finds your lost skin vitality.
Textures/Consistency : It has very slimy consistency, it is thicker than water but easily absorbed by skin. I really likes how this essence has very fast rate of absorbtions. Eventhough, you can see that it is bouncy and sticky when I swatch it, but in real, its just glides smoothly on my skin, without any stickiness.
Moisture Level : This is what I love about. It has very high moisture level. It hydrates my skin well without any stickiness or oil. I can feel the cooling sensations when I rub in onto my skin, and I can really feel the moisture goes deep down my dermis and epidermis layer ❤ It really does it job to hydrates my skin without heavy oil. Good job, Cosrx!
Usage Instructions :
2. On the cheek, spread a generous amount and rub enough to soak into the skin.
3. For under eye area, tap as if playing the piano, to make the skin absorb the essence.

I use the same way as recommended. After toning, I apply 1 pump of essence and lightly pat my face to increase the absorbtions rate [and I don’t want to put much pressure on my sensitives skin though]. I also use it as eye cream ❤
I USE IT AS MY NIGHT TIME ESSENCE FOR MORE HYDRATIONS AT NIGHT.
Overall Performances : 4.9/5
Overall, it really does what it claimed. It hydrates my skin, helps repair my damaged skin, makes my skin’s textures become smooth and supple! I also apply this as sleeping pack, and I woke up with soft and plump skin the next day ❤ In terms of scars, yes, it helps to fasten the cells regeneration, and fasten the healing of my scars. Eventhough my scars are not fully fade, but I already feels statisfied with its performance. I used this essence less than 1 week though.
Repurchase : Yes! ❤ This products will always be my night time essence.
