I'm finishing up my second jar of this cream!I wasn't sure which one to buy at first, between this and the regular red jar snail cream or the one at CosRX instead. I ended up with this one because I read some reviews saying it absorbed without leaving a sticky residue. I have no patience to wait for creams to slowly absorbThis cream is lightweight. I have moved from using it only at night, to using it only in the morning under make up, to using it twice a day, morning and night. The absolute best thing about this cream is that I can wear anything underneath it or above it without worrying about it disturbing anything. Like, with other creams, if I put it on top of my serums/ampoules/whatever, it could potentially pill up or I feel like it wiped off the layer or treatment underneath. This cream doesn't do any of that. If I put it on after a particularly sticky layer of serum, it will just lay gently on top and the sticky feeling is gone and replaced by a nice soothed feeling. Likewise with make up, usually creams are too heavy for me to wear under make up and will cause more transfers when a foundation usually doesn't, I don't get that happening with this cream. It leaves my face smooth and plumped for my makeup. I don't even bother with primer anymore.As for moisturizing, I have to admit it isn't super moisturizing in the way your traditional cream might feel. I think it's because of the fact that it seems to absorb and disappear that people find it not moisturizing enough. If you feel that way, then it might be a good idea to use a serum or ampoule underneath the cream on your skin first or perhaps, use a night mask instead. For those with oilier skin, this cream is amazing!

I actually love this BB cream and had bought a second tube of it. I haven't opened the second tube yet, as there is another BB cream I am currently loving a bit more, but I wouldn't hesitate to come back to this one afterwards.First of all, yes, this BB cream is meant for the fair skinned. It's insanely pale when you first put it on and only "warms up" in colour a little bit after it's been on for half an hour or so. But only like, one shade darker and not much. I love that it doesn't oxidize or go orangey on me. Colour wise, I really don't find it hard to blend in? In summer when I'm a little more darker, I just add some bronzer to my face and everything transitions smoothly. There's still flashback in photography thoughI find the consistency of this BB cream a bit more on the... wet side? If I apply it with a sponge, my sponge soaks up most of it (and I think that's why I finished my first tube so quickly), but if I apply with my fingers, I really need only a pea sized amount or less. With a sponge, maybe a quarter size.I personally find it blends in very nicely and evenly onto the skin. I apply it over moisturized skin, over a layer of sunscreen. The colour of the BB cream is able to neutralize most of my redness and just create a lovely photo finish blur over my pores and everything. It just looks like skin, not matte or semi-matte or dewy like most Korean BB creams do. If I have acne marks, I would put concealer over it, and not double layer the BB cream like I would with another product. With this BB cream, less is better. I don't know if it's the "snail" part of this cream, but I feel like my skin has gotten better after wearing it continuously over the summer. Usually after wearing foundation for a few hours my skin dries up around my smile lines and chin and kind of... cracks? I don't get that with this BB cream. My face still feels soft after an 8 hour shift and after I wash off my make up, my face doesn't feel super dry. I feel like my PIH marks have also slowly faded with wearing this BB cream and the nicest thing about this BB cream is that it can sit well on top of any cream/moisturizer/serum/ampoule that I may already be wearing.This cream transfers though. When I had allergies and constantly blew my nose, I think each time I used the tissue, everything just wiped off from my nose no matter how gently I tried to be. Two stars off for that, otherwise, I think this is a great BB cream that's actually good to my skin

This is a really lovely, gentle exfoliant for my dry skin. I find it non-irritating and pretty effective.

I actually don't mind this product. I wouldn't really call it a moisturiser. It is extremely light weight and has the consistency of an aloe vera gel. I tend to use it under other products as extra hydration or to smooth my skin or I use it after exercise to have something on my face after a shower and soothe the flushing. I don't notice enough benefit from this product to buy it again.

This is my number 2 eye cream after Shiseido Wrinkle Resist eye cream. This is a very good eye cream, it did not cause any breakouts. My under eye wrinkles have gone. It comes with a spatula, so you won’t dip your fingers in the jar. I recommend everyone to try the snail products
