These 5 Fave K-Beauty Ingredients Make Korean Skincare So Good

From bird spit to bee venom, nothing is off limits when it comes to potential ingredients in Korean skincare.

About the product

What Is It:


If you love what snail mucin does for your skin, this face cream is for you. Snail mucin is rich in elastin, proteins, copper peptides, hyaluronic acid, glycolic acid, and has antimicrobial properties. Formulated with a whopping 92% low-stimulation, filtered snail secretion filtrate from live Korean snails, this cream practically does it all: hydrates, firms, soothes irritation, smooths skin texture and fine lines, reduces acne scars, strengthens the skin barrier, and prevents moisture loss. Suitable for all skin types.


Our insight:


Just like the infamous COSRX snail essence, this snail cream has a thicker, stringy consistency. However, it absorbs quickly into skin, leaving an extremely nourished and hydrated finish.


How to use:


Apply to face, avoiding the eye and mouth area, and pat in to enhance absorption.


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
