“Have I heard right? 74 % of snail secretion filtrate aka snail slime? That’s awesome! I must try that!” That is what I was thinking when I was first introduced to this product. 45 ml of snail slime (and other ingredients as well, but still, SNAIL SLIME!?) and everybody talking about it, was enough for me to order it straight away — for less than 5$ it would be a shame for not trying it, because I just love trying out the products that have unique ingredients.

Snail mucus claims to be rich in hyaluronic acid and antioxidants which helps our skin to regenerate stimulating the formation of collagen, elastin and dermal components that repair the signs of photoaging. Also, it claims to minimize the damage generated by free radicals that are responsible for premature skin aging.

Mizon Multi Function Formula Snail Recovery Gel Cream Review:
Mizon Snail Recovery Gel Cream is a clear gel with a watery consistency. It absorbs pretty quickly into the skin and doesn’t leave any stickiness or residue.
Many people confuse it as a stand alone moisturizer, but that’s not what it is. You should follow up with a proper cream and seal everything in.
The gel has no specific scent on its own and it’s very easy to apply. It comes housed in a pink plastic tube, which is really adorable (it has a snail on it!) and handy. I applied it after my routine and before any creams and moisturizers. It applied very nicely and the amount you need for a whole face is little.
I used this every day. Once, I got scratched by a cat and I covered the scratch with the gel. It healed quicker than I have expected. It also helped with fastening the process of healing a few acne scars and inflammation that I had from a previous breakout.
I wanted to love it, but I just can’t say that I do. I have expected from this product a little bit more than just fastening the healing process. But it did nothing else for my skin other than healing. It didn’t add any hydration.
I’m still not sure, but it might have caused a few closed comedones. I’m not going to say it’s a bad purchase, but I won’t repurchase it. If it works for your skin, this might be a great deal for you, because it’s really cheap and easy to get.
