Not worth the hype: Mizon Snail Ampoule

This was the first ampoule I’ve ever used. I had high hopes after seeing rave reviews on r/AsianBeauty, but this did not live up to the hype for me. MIZON - Snail Repair Intensive Ampoule
Texture - goopy and viscous, but I would still consider this a serum consistency rather than a gel or lotion. Takes a while to sink into the skin.
Scent - no noticeable scent for me
Application - It comes in a little glass bottle with a dropper, which I actually appreciated since the bottle is opaque.
Results - I used this at night after I washed my face and before my moisturizer. At first, I didn’t notice any differences in hydration, other than making me feel like my skin was sticky. But after a few weeks, I started to get little red rash patches/bumps on my face. I stopped using this product and the red patches/bumps have gone away, so I think I may have been allergic to something in this product. My boyfriend also tried this serum on his face and got a similar reaction.
Overall thoughts: I would not recommend this product given that I think I had some irritation due to it and that I did not feel any differences in hydration. I’ve since seen some articles about allergies to snail mucin, so definitely patch test before you try out a snail product for the first time!

mikachuNo problem! Everyone’s skin is different, so maybe it will work for you! Definitely patch test though in case you’re allergic to snail mucin like me 😊

niacinamide serum
The GOOD MOLECULES - Niacinamide Serum is such a great value and is packed with awesome and simple ingredients. This contains 10% niacinamide and is designed to refine skin texture and minimize pores. Niacinamide is one of my favorite ingredients and I love using this morning and night. This is very comparable to the niacinamide serum by the ordinary and is a great price (only $6 for 1fl oz). I’ve been using this for the past 5 months and still have a lot in the bottle. I’ve noticed a huge improvement in my skin texture and tone since starting to use this. I recommend this product and niacinamide in general to almost anyone! The texture is a thick serum (like most niacinamide products) and is a little sticky but dries pretty quickly. 5/5 stars ⭐️

Cosrx Galactomyces Essence Whi
Cosrx Galactomyces Essence Whitening Power Essence ✨ I used this in rotation with my Missha First Treatment Essence. I really love how affordable and effective this product is! I got this before they changed the packaging - the new one has “Tone Balancing Essence” instead of Whitening.. I think because it didn’t really do much in whitening.. in my case at least. 😆 This helps my skin look healthy and glowing! I love applying this before I proceed with my other essences and serums. The ingredients are amazing! It has 95% of Galactomyces ferment filtrate along with  Niacinamide, Sodium Hyaluronate, Betaine, Glycerin, 1,2-Hexanediol, Allantoin,m to name a few. It has a short list of ingredients compared to others.  It’s unscented and the texture is slightly thicker than Missha’s. It doesn’t really do much with my hyper pigmentation but it does brighten my skin and even out my complexion. ✨

This product.....what can I say. An essence is not essential to your routine but if you are looking for some extra hydration, this stuff will do for a great price. It’s only 23 dollars and you might be able to find it cheaper outside of Ulta. Cos rx is a Korean skin care brand and they are really big on essences. It’s made from 96% snail mucin. I try not to think about it actually because it’s so slimy but it absorbs into my skin like a dream. It fits into my routine wonderfully. I have combo oily normal skin but it can be used for any skin type I think. I’m not sure about sensitive skin though honestly.

Snail Secretion?????!
Snail Secretion?????!
I tried these snail hydrogel eye patches and it was an experience. ElishaCoy - Snail Hydrogel Eye Patch This is a Korean brand but can be found at CVS or Amazon Snail Secretion is also known as snail smile or snail mucus. Sounds Gross but it has a lot of great properties like it is a great moisturizer and boost skin regeneration. Popular products that use is the COSRX - Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence These eye patches made my under eyes very plump. This eye patches are Firming, Nourishing, and Moisturizing. I do have very sensitive skin and the first time I use it i had a burning/ tingling sensation. I was a little worried but when I took the patches off my skin was great and on the second use there was no burning. Because of the initial tingling feeling I took off one star.

Peach & Lily Glass Skin Serum:
Peach & Lily Glass Skin Serum: this is at the front of my k beauty trio! I’ve been looking for a niacinamide Serum for a while, as the ordinary one is not to my liking, and I think I’ve finally found my match! While it’s not hydrating, this serum is cosmetically elegant and sinks into my skin right away, making it work well under makeup, and ok for daytime use. It’s supposed to brighten and refine the skin, and since I’ve been using it my skin seems clearer. Definitely a 5/5! This retails for $39 but I did pick it up for $20 on sale, so I already have a backup! I would definitely recommend this for helping with texture issues.
