5 stars (I forgot to add them, and now I can't) I understand why this is never in stock, it's a staple in everyone's skincare routine.

I love this product and will continue to repurchase! It is gentle, doesn't clog or break me out and it makes my skin feel so hydrated. I like that it doesn't have many other "beneficial" ingredients besides Snail Secretion Filtrate so I know what I am getting. I can always get those ingredients through other means :)
