Mizon Snail Repair Eye Cream Review:
Snail slime can be found in many Asian skincare creams or products and there’s very good reason why. Snail mucin is rich in elastin, proteins and peptides that makes skin healthy including hyaluronic acid that makes skin appear more soft and youthful.
Snail mucin also possesses powerful anti-microbial properties that can prevent bacteria from developing. This is my first eye cream and since I have had great results with snail creams and other snail skincare, I decided to give this a shot.
Mizon Snail Repair Eye Cream is filled with 80 percent snail mucin and claims to firm and tighten eye skin area. This special snail eye cream can prevent the development of fine lines and also lighten skin tone with niacinamide, that can even out dark skin color.
This lightweight cream can intensely moisturize eye area with the help of natural peptides that can also plump and soften skin. Snail mucin is very effective in anti-aging and pigmentation, that can also help lighten dark circles.

Mizon Snail Repair Eye Cream Review:
Mizon is known for its effective and powerful snail products that can intensely moisturize, brighten skin tone and fade away acne scars. I was really intent on trying this out before I resort to more powerful eye creams with retinol.
My eyes currently experience some uneven skin tone and a few smile lines, and I aim to prevent further crepe-y damage and maybe brighten my skin with this little snail eye cream.
I have been using this for a few months now and despite being only 15 ml in a tube, Mizon’s Snail Repair Eye Cream goes a long way. A small dot is needed for each eye, where this tube dispenses the right amount of cream that I find convenient and easy to use.
The white cream is not sticky and goes smoothly, it is also very light. I did not experience any irritation with this and to me, there is no scent.
I noticed that my eye area has become slightly lighter in skin tone but I cannot describe it as brightening. One thing that this eye cream does is it effectively moisturizes and plumps my eye area so this is also a great eye primer before any real makeup primer.
As far as eye creams go, I still want to explore my options. Mizon Snail Repair Eye Cream is gentle and hydrating and I think it’s more preventive than repairing when it comes to its efficacy.
I like how it can moisturize my eye area since it has been subjected to powerful oil cleansers while I wiping away my liquid and gel eyeliners. I have been kinda harsh with my eye skin and I hoped to make up for it with this snail eye cream.
My eye area lightened up a little bit and I can feel that it is well moisturized every time I use this but maybe I want to look for something more powerful.
Since this is my only eye cream, I still use eye masks with this cream to give my peepers a little more pampering.
If you want to soften fine lines and remove dark circles around your eye, this is not for you, but this can moisturize your skin area and is a good step before applying any eye makeup and after removing eye makeup.
