I’ve never imagined that snails would contribute so much in my skincare. When I initially started taking baby steps towards Korean skincare, a lot of my research ended up with CosRx’s products that were much raved about, and of course this Snail Mucin Power Essence was one of the best-seller/most hyped. And I always craved to include this in my routine, and finally made it recently that I got my hands on this slime solution. In this post, I will be talking about this CosRx Advanced Snail Mucin 96 Power Essence and how it fared on my skin.
Containing as much as 96.3% of Snail Mucin concentrate, this essence adds intense moisture to skin to heal and relieve damages from within, resulting in a rejuvenated complexion.

This advanced Snail Mucin essence comes in a frosted pump bottle. It also comes with a white outer cardboard with a little about the product mentioned on the box. The list of ingredients is also mentioned on the box. The bottle is pretty classic, hygienic and can be easily carried while travelling. The essence is a clear gooey solution with barely any fragrance. I love that most Korean skincare is fragrance-free; working for most sensitive skin or allergic people. And also look at the minimal ingredients, yet being powerful humectants which helps skin to attract moisture.
With 96% Snail Mucin, this essence is definitely gonna feel slime-y to touch. The essence has a light slippery formula which absorbs right away into the skin leaving a slight tacky feeling, it’s totally okay. I use this essence either in my morning or night routine. I need 2-3 pumps of the essence for my entire face and neck. It hydrates the skin, making it soft and supple. It helps skin retain its moisture while nourishing and protecting it. I must admit that this essence has helped my skin improve its texture, I saw a great texture change while using it and I’m blessed that this did not break my skin out. In a long-term use, this definitely is beneficial in anti-aging and improving skin’s texture. I’ve heard some people talk about this working on their acne. I don’t have much acne symptoms as of now on my skin so I cannot tell about it.
Overall, I like this essence for the changes it brought in my skin’s texture. This essence boosts up skin hydration nourishing it and easing dryness and irritations. This essence is not for people who are looking for overall skin improvement, it does not work on pigmentation and dark spots at all. My skin has least observed any change in dark spots and blemishes that exist. I’m almost at the verge of finishing my first bottle, and I’m in a state of confusion whether to repurchase it or not. But since winters being just around the corners and my skin needs a ton of hydration I’ll have to definitely get a back up of this. I would definitely recommend this to dry skin people, this is a great skincare essential to start with.
