Winter is generally not a good time for my skin. I have combination skin and patches of it get extremely dry when the weather outside is so cold. Essences are a must for me. They are basically a lighter and less concentrated version of a serum. I tend to use essences over serums because I find serums to be too thick and sometimes they take a long time to absorb into the skin.
The product claims to achieve “super intense repair and hydration.” It also claims to “replenish and revitalize nutrients to help prevent and repair damage, giving you ultimate elasticity and hydration.” It is said to be good for acne, dry skin, and fading any hyper pigmentation.

COSRX Snail Mucin Essence Review:
I absolutely LOVE this product. I ordered it on a whim out of curiosity. I had heard so many amazing things about snail ingredients in skincare and I decided it was time to hop on the train and try it out myself!
The Cosrx Snail Mucin Essence boasts 96% snail secretion filtrate. It comes in a pump bottle. The first thing I noticed when I first tried it out was the texture. I pumped some onto the back of my hand and immediately noticed how gooey and almost sticky it was.
However, as soon as I started patting it into my face, the essence thinned out and didn’t feel sticky at all! It absorbed quickly into my skin and my skin felt plump and moisturized. I use it every morning before I put on my make up, and every night after cleansing my face. It keeps the dry patches of my skin moisturized using it before my makeup prevents my foundation from caking up around dry skin patches.
I’ve been using it twice a day for around three weeks now and I was surprised to see that my acne scars actually look lighter! My acne scars are very small and I only have a few but I can definitely see a slight difference. Even without this effect, this is a great product for keeping skin moisturized.
This is now my holy grail essence! I love it so much and I have really seen changes in my skin since I started using it.
