Here’s the COSRX review you have been waiting from its best selling Advanced Snail Mucin line – COSRX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence! Packed with snail mucin, this Korean facial essence is one of the best ones you can apply on your skin to help boost cell regeneration. Let’s find out what our BONIIK team has to say about this ‘miracle elixir’.
Just like its name, COSRX Snail Mucin Essence is packed with high concentrations of snail secretion extract (some of us like to call it snail mucin too), about 96%. Snail mucin extract has been hailed as one of the best ingredients for damaged, acne-prone and sensitive skin as it works by boosting cell repair to enhance skin barrier and elasticity. Don’t worry, no snails were harmed in the making of this facial serum!
On top of snail mucin, this powerful COSRX snail essence is also enriched with hyaluronic acid, allantoin and panthenol which will deliver hydration to plump skin, restore hydration and plumpness, while keeping the skin calm.
COSRX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence has a syrup-like texture that glides smoothly onto the skin when applied, without leaving greasy or sticky finish. Its lightweight, non-comedogenic formula is perfect to use as part of your day time or night time Korean skincare routines. Our team at BONIIK love its fast absorbing texture that makes makeup application a breeze as it plumps and smoothes out our skin without causing makeup to crack or clump.
Because of this smooth, spreadable texture, a little goes a long way and all you need is 2-3 pumps to cover your entire face.
How to Incorporate into Your Routine
What does COSRX Snail Essence do? A whole lot of things really! From smoothing out your skin, repairing damaged skin barrier, fading scars and blemishes, as well as retain optimal moisture balance for visibly smoother skin.
So now, how do you use COSRX Advanced Snail Mucin Power Essence? To add this into your daily Korean skincare routines, simply take 2-3 pumps and apply it over your face after cleansing and toning. Gently pat it to promote absorption before continuing with a Korean moisturiser and eye cream of your choice. Our BONIIK team love using the entire COSRX Advanced Snail line from its cleanser, mask sheet, essence, eye cream, moisturiser and eye gel patch as it provides a quick, easy, highly effective Korean skincare routine from just one line! In addition, using the entire skincare line can provide your skin quicker results so you can see and feel the difference for yourself too.
If you have acne-prone, sensitive, troubled skin that needs rescuing, the COSRX Snail Mucin Essence is a must-have. We often get asked, is COSRX Snail Essence good? Our BONIIK staff members who have oily, troubled skin with a history of severe teenage hormonal acne think this is their holy grail essence! Not only has it helped smooth out rough, uneven skin texture, but it also helps fade and improve the appearance of dark spots, acne scars and redness by rebuilding skin barrier.Apart from that, its gentle yet powerful formula makes it safe to use in conjunction with other Korean skincare products like hyaluronic acid, vitamin C, Cica, or even gentle exfoliators like AHA skincare. COSRX Snail Essence is especially great to layer or mix with any other strong ingredient if you have sensitive skin.
