These days I am all about hydrating my skin. For years I believed I had oily skin and all I did was to use oil controlling-mattifying products and deprived my skin of hydration. Only recently I found that my skin was not only oily but also dehydrated. Meaning, my skin always felt dry even in the T-zone area though being oily. (I hope you can understand this!) I wanted a product which not only hydrates my skin but doesn’t make it oily at the same time! And I am so glad I stumbled upon Cosrx Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence. Let me tell you why I love this baby with all my heart!
Price: I got it for Rs.1095. The bottle contains 100ml product and has a shelf life of 24 months. This needs to be finished within 12 months of opening the bottle.
Availability: I know Korean products are not easily accessible to the Indian market.🤔 But that doesn’t stop us from getting our hands on them. Worry not, I’ll give you not one but two options to choose from (thank me later).😉
- Yesstyle – free shipping on orders above 2400Rs 🤗
- Cosmetic love – free shipping on all orders (no minimum purchase required) 😲
A little about Cosrx Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence: Made with all-natural domestic 96% snail secretion filtrate, the Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence is a Real Power Essence that transforms the skin while keeping in the moisture and encouraging the real power of skin in a healthy way. It replenishes nutrients to the skin to prevent and repair damages and fills the skin with elasticity for a healthier, younger looking skin.
Also Cosrx is a cruelty free brand, hence no snails were harmed during the making of the essence! 🤗
Texture: You might cringe (because of the ingredient-snail mucin) but it will only be there till the bottle arrives. Because once you start using it, you’ll be addicted to this. It has a very light-weight slimy texture which is entirely transparent and has no fragrance whatsoever! The essence gets absorbed into the skin in no time! It doesn’t leave any oily residue post application.
The snail mucin has the capability to hydrate the skin on a cellular level and promotes healthier skin without the heaviness and irritants. It replenishes the nutrients and elasticity to the skin.
Efficacy: True to its claims, this essence indeed is a boost of moisture for dehydrated skin. Even if your skin is not dehydrated, this can be used to retain the hydration level and keep skin soft and supple. With no fragrance and extremely light-weight texture, this can easily be layered under any facial moisturiser.
Ingredients: Snail Secretion Filtrate, Betaine, Butylene Glycol,1,2-Hexanediol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Panthenol, Arginine, Allantoin, Ethyl Hexanediol, Sodium Polyacrylate, Carbomer, Phenoxyethanol
Application: I use it at night time right after my toner and before my moisturiser, at present which is Nutrispa skin firming serum. After applying the essence I pat my skin for minimum half a minute, that way the essence is pushed back into the skin and gets absorbed faster. (recently I apply almost all skincare products in a dabbing motion, I love it that way & is effective too).💁🏻
This can also be applied under eyes. And I love doing that. My under eyes feel so hydrated when I apply this before my eye cream. 👀
The verdict on Cosrx Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence:
I am so happy that I found this essence. This is the perfect boost of hydration for my dehydrated but oily skin. It hasn’t broken me out, in fact, it has helped in soothing my active acne. The essence has been with me when my skin reacted to Innisfree sleeping mask. This will not irritate even the most sensitive skin. I am using this non-stop since more than a month now and my skin is loving it to bits.💕
Do I recommend Cosrx Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence? Do I need to even mention? 🤷🏻♀️Absolutely yes! Irrespective of your age, skin concerns or skin type, you should definitely give this a try! I am definitely going to repurchase this for the rest of my life.🤗
Until next time, stay beautiful & keep smiling!
