Review of 'CosRX's' Advanced Snail 92 All in One Cream

"The Advanced Snail in one Cream that supports the natural regeneration of damaged skin to reduce the appearance of wrinkles.  - CosRX

I decided to get this product after trying sample packets of the snail cream. I was surprised at how much it reduced my post-extraction redness, and my face is usually hot red after extractions.

I got this product from Jolse. Yes, once again. I ordered this product on August 13, and it came on August 26 (only 13 days!). After it was shipped out of Korea, the tracking didn't update so I assumed my package was still on its way to my country. Without any update, it came to my house pretty quickly.

Directions :
"1. After facial wash, take a small amount of each area of the face in the final stage of basic care. Tap with fingertips to absorb along the skin texture.
2. Absorb by covering your face 2 to 3 times softly with your palm"   - CosRX

I like to use this as a sleeping mask after moisturizing my face with another product. After applying my moisturizer, I use the spatula given to scoop out a generous amount, apply it to the four corners of my face and nose, and then I just rub it into my skin.

Duration of use : July 11, 2015 - August 25, 2015
Application :

The texture of the snail cream is pretty light. It absorbs well into the skin, and I don't find it greasy at all. Because of how light it is, I don’t think it’s moisturizing enough by itself. Like I said in the Directions section, I use this as a sleeping mask, and my skin seems to like it as one.
Ingredients :
Snail Secretion Filtrate, Betaine, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Cetearyl Olivate, Sorbitan Olivate, Sodium Hyaluronate, Cetearyl Alcohol, stearic acid, Arginine, Dimethicone, Carbomer, Panthenol, Allantoin, Sodium Polyacrylate, Xanthan Gum, Ethyl Hexanediol, Adenosine, Phenoxyethanol

There is no smell I can detect in this cream at all. Bonus point for being unfragranced!

Thoughts :
I use this cream as a moisturizer in the morning and as a sleeping mask at night. I absolutely adore this product. When I go to see my aesthetician to have all my blackheads extracted, my skin is pretty red for longer than a week. When using this cream right after facial, I found that it calmed my redness super fast in just one day. This product was definitely a game changer in my skincare routine.

Something that I think the product can improve on is moisturization. I can't emphasize enough how light this is. Many users of this cream even say they use it as a sleeping mask because of the lack of hydration given alone as a moisturizer. Despite its low moisturizing ability, it is still great for reducing redness and repairing the skin over time.

Throughout the time period of using this cream, it didn't break me out at all, which is great. This product contains few ingredients and a whopping 92% of snail secretion filtrate, which is perfect for those who have sensitive skin. If you want to try a snail cream/sleeping mask, I would definitely recommend trying this one.
