CHECK THE NEW FORMULATION INGREDIENTS BEFORE TRYING! The ingredient list, off the back of my box is at the bottom of this review.
Please check the ingredient list before you try this, especially if you are prone to breakouts. Dig deeper when looking on Amazon too... Check the q&a and recent reviews for the ingredients off of the box from people who purchased. The ingredients are incorrect in the Amazon description, which shouldn't be allowed! Also, when reading blogs, check the date they were written. One blogger (simple skincare science) recommends this essence specifically because he said it does not have polysorbate 20... but now it does! I have dehydrated, acne prone, oily skin, for reference: Since using this new formulation, on some places of my face, my past acne scar/dents do look plump and my skin looks pretty (that's why I gave it more than one lippy), but in other places, I now have angry, stubborn cystic acne! There was one deep, cystic spot that was finally starting to heal, until I put a glob of this essence on it before bed last night... this morning, the bump was forming again! Ugh! I didn't believe this essence was the culprit, until I checked the box.
New formulation ingredients: Aqua(Water), Snail Secretion Filtrate, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Niacinamide, 1,2-Hexanediol, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, sh-Oligopeptide-1, Bee Venom, Plantago Asiatica Extract, Laminaria Digitata Extract, Diospyros Kaki Leaf Extract, Salix Alba (Willow) Bark Extract, Ulmus Campestris (Elm) Bark Extract, Althaea Rosea Root Extract, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Beta-Glucan, Betaine, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Adenosine, Panthenol, Allantoin, Pentylene Glycol, Zanthoxylum Piperitum Fruit Extract, Pulsatilla Koreana Extract, Usnea Barbata (Lichen) Extract, Polysorbate 20, Lecithin, ArginineThe new formulation includes polysorbate 20, which feeds fungal acne! Also, now it does NOT say 90% snail mucin anywhere on the box AND snail mucin is NOT the first ingredient anymore. :(
I hope this helps!

Been using this for a week . The acid is probably quite mild as I feel no ill effects from it although my skin is sensitive to acids. My skin looks worse compared to the past though , just more redness and some breakouts and just uneven-ness. Will continue to use and see if it’s caused by this .

Upon taking the mask out of the package, I noticed that it had a light, natural fragrance but something I can’t quite describe. The mask didn’t fit the best on my face and had weird eye flaps that I ended up tucking underneath my eye to add extra hydration there. The nose cutout section is a little too big for my face and a bit of skin around my nose isn’t covered by the mask at all.After a few minutes of wearing it, I noticed a cooling sensation that is very welcome in the warmer temperatures that we’ve been having here.There was a bit of extra essence in the packet so I put it on both of my arms. After 20 minutes, I removed the mask. A lot of the essence had soaked into my skin so my face was moisturized after taking the sheet off but there wasn’t too much extra essence sitting on top of my skin – which is something I don’t enjoy.The mask left my face cool, smooth and supple feeling.Overall: I really like this mask and for the price, you can’t beat it. This mask is perfect to refresh your skin in the hot summer months and doesn’t leave your face sticky afterwards with serum. I’ll definitely be buying more.Update: The next morning I didn’t have enough time to do my full skincare routine (because I like sleeping too much haha) so I only used my Neogen serum spray, moisturizer, eye cream and face cream underneath my BB cream but my skin glowed the whole day

This product is absolutely wonderful!! I follow an elaborate Korean skincare regiment and this toner along with the Benton Snail Bee High Content Essence is my favorite product to put on. This has helped a lot with my redness, brightens very dark acne spots (mine used to look like a black beauty mark, now it looks light-reddish like a freckle), and really plumps your face. One bottle of this lasts a long time, so for the price point it is very reasonable. I have under the skin bumps from who-knows-why and this has really helped in reducing those bumps. I would recommend this to anyone with sensitive acne-prone skin.Would I repurchase? Yes!

This was an all around good moisturizer for all skin types I feel like. I have combination, sensitive and acne prone skin, and this does not irritate and cause any breakouts. Its very moisturizing and I would only need a little over a pea sized amount for my face and neck. This soothes irritation, dry patches and redness overnight. I have recently found a new HG moisturizer which works even better than this one (it's the Topicare Ceramide Soothing Cream), where this newly loved one also makes your skin super soft as if wearing a primer. Hence, I will not be repurchasing this cream. However, this is still a very great moisturizing cream overall and I would recommend this to anyone.
