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.

for this product I became addicted to the snail mucin

This is a great choice for a serum product. It sinks in quickly and is really moisturising. My only gripe would be the slightly tacky texture which makes it difficult to use my palms to spread. I usually pump some on my fingers and spread it in to my face one part at a time.

The slimey texture was a little bit off putting at first, but after getting over that, I would not go without this essence! Very nicely formulated, leaves no stickiness behind and absorbs quite quickly. I use it with both my morning and evening routine!

Wow, it sure is packed with snail... Not for the faint of heart if you think the consistency may disgust you. Nevertheless, if you want to try a snail product, this is it. You have to take some time to massage it in so that the initial stickiness disappears.

If you want to introduce yourself to snail products this is a great place to start. Its an easy, no-brainer addition to your routine if you don't already have a snail product and are in need of an essence. Following the directions and use a moisturizer after this. This product on it's own won't be mositurizing enough. It's an in-between step and great for combination and congested skin.

I really wanted to give this product a try, but unfortunately it was out of stock... Hopefully it goes back on stock soon so I can at last buy it.

German Review:

Verpackung: schlicht, durchsichtige plastik Verpackung, Pumpspender
Textur: schleimziehend, flüssig bis gelartig
Geruch: sehr leichter, angenehm

Auftrag/Anwendung: Ich gebe mir immer zwei Pumpstöße in die Hände und verteile es etwas in meiner Hand und trage es anschließend auf meinem Gesicht auf. Es zieht sehr schnell ein, daher gut und zügig auf dem Geischt verteilen und mit klopfend/ tupfenden Bewegungen einarbeiten.

Empfehlung: Es fühlt sich super auf der Haut an, macht sie schön weich und frisch wirkend. Ich habe trockene/ mischhaut, ohne Feuchtigkeitsspender danach, fühlt es sich nach einiger Zeit etwas trocken und ziehend im Gesicht an. Für Menschen mit eher öliger Haut dagegen, auch... Read more

I really love this but my only issue would be is that it's not as moisturising as others.
I have VERY dry skin and work in an air-conditioned office which really doesn't help.
So in the early afternoon I notice my skin is a bit dry and needs a top-up.

It soaks in really quickly, I've noticed the red in my face has reduced and it doesn't have a strong scent. Bonus - doesn't leave hands feeling tacky!

Would definitely recommend for anyone without super dry skin and works in an air-conditioned office. Otherwise you might need to carry a moisturising cream or mist... Read more
