My ride or die snail product for three years. It's always in rotation in my routine. It's soothing, hydrating, and doesn't break me out. Fantastic as part of after-sun care.

One day I spent too much time in the sun and my shoulders were pink. After slathering this on and going to bed, my skin was completely normal the next morning. Ah.Ma.Zing. Holy grail for sure.

Holy grail snail slime forever. I love this stuff and will always use it. I have dry thirsty skin and this is the number one product in my cabinet for the best type of quickly absorbed, gentle, totally great hydration.

I've used this product for a month or so now and it's done everything it's supposed to. I wish I could continue using it but apparently I'm allergic to snail slime... It gave me red spots on my cheeks but no serious reaction. If you have a dust allergy you might want to check if you're allergic to snails as well before you try this.

This was one of my very first kbeauty purchases! And I still use it every day! I have collected several other snail containing products which I do use and like. But, if I could only choose one, this would be it! The idea of snail and the consistency has taken my daughter a little longer to get accustomed to but it doesn't bother me at all. It has no smell, it's cool on the skin, and just slides all over with zero effort. Definitely a keeper! Always keep a spare on hand!

I’ve been using this essence for three months now and there’s still half of the bottle left. This essence is great, it soothes and hydrates the skin. It doesn’t leave me with a tacky feeling on my face once applied. Sometimes I even use two layers of this essence when I feel like I need it. Considering that I use it on a daily basis with sometimes several layers of this essence, it is a great bargain and money well-spent. Morever my skin reacted well to this product.

It’s soothing but I think my skin might not be compatible with snail products because if I feel like I break out If i use this every night

I’m wondering if I’m having the same problem 😔

Not sure if my skin has been THAT dry lately, but for the most part I love this product. It makes my skin feel like every serum I put on after is actually soaked into my skin without just sitting on top and making my face sticky. My power combo for SUPER dry skin is this essense + fig & yarrows rosehip and argan oil serum and your face feels so supple and amazing.

As someone who's well into their third bottle of this, I cannot praise it enough for what it does to my skin. The gentle hydration and healing qualities (not to mention the smooth texture) all make this a true HG item for me. I especially find it great for the scaly dry patches I get around my nose and eyebrows - they used to be one of my biggest bug-bears, but now I never worry about them. Would absolutely recommend to anyone!🐌🐌🐌

This essence really helps dry skin! I use this whenever I get flaky skin around my mouth from tooth paste, and the dry patches are usually gone within a day.

I've only been using for 3 weeks but I really like it so far. I use every day morning and night. It absorbs well and doesn't take too long. It is not sticky and I have already noticed a difference in my skin! I expect to repurchase this once empty.
