I bought this gel treatment online, 2 tubes for only $11. At first I thought I could use this as a light daytime moisturizer but I found that its too light and now I use it as a moisture "sealer". I apply it after my cleansing,toning,serum,moisturizer/sunscreen as the last step in my morning skincare routine also because of the second ingredient being silicone I often skip wearing face primer if I use this gel. There's no scent I can detect which is good,I don't like any kind of fragrance in skincare. I will not repurchase since I already have another tube as a back up and I'm already eyeing another brand that I like to try.
Currently on my third tube of this and I love it.
I apply this every night after cleaning and moisturising with the Hada Labo Gokujyun range, and my skin has improved so much since I started using it.
I apply the product by dispensing it on my left hand and then dabbing it onto my face, and there is now a noticeable difference in the texture of my right and left hands - I may have to alternate now!
I bought 2 tubes from eBay for ~$11 USD and could not be happier with the product or price. I've even given some to friends to try and they love it too.
At this price point with these results, I will continue to repurchase. I cannot speak for the anti wrinkle claims as I am too young at the moment, but it has definitely improved the texture of my skin and even helped scars heal
Very lovely feel on my skin after application but unfortunately I found it to be lacking in moisturising power!!! Having said that, it will work better if moisturiser is applied before applying this snail gel cream :-)
This is a acne life saver for me. I have been using this for over a month, religiously day and night. Except for the first week, I have stopped having break out. I usually get break out so often, every 2 or 3 days, that my face is full of acne scars. Now, I don't get those nasty acne anymore, but I still get some harmless whiteheads that doesn't leave a scar or anything.
I deduct 1 point because I think this has given me more blackhead on my nose and enlarged pores on the side of my nose. So now I only use this on my cheek and chins (the places I get break out the most) and the blackhead clear up.
I have dry-normal skin. This gel is moisturizing and dry out matte, not oily or greasy at all. If I don't use a cream, I can still get by, no flaky or anything, but I prefer a more hydrated, plump look so I use a face cream on top. But I imagine this will be perfect for oily or combination skin.
Where do I begin? I absolutely adore this product!
I have the type of skin that breaks out with most every facial cream I've ever tried.. This isn't even something I could describe as a cream. It's totally scentless, is very smooth to apply, absorbs in a matter of less than two minutes, and DOES NOT leave any oily or film-y feeling behind!
As far as moisture content... Not so great. I've noticed my skin retains a lot more moisture since I began using this product a month ago.. However I do still apply lotion as needed. The few wrinkles I do have on my face have faded.. Not as much as I was hoping, but with continued use I'm assuming it'll only improve further.
My break outs are almost non-existent now, acne scars have faded dramatically, my skin is not oily on my forehead anymore either!
If you're looking for something to boost your skins cell turnover I would highly recommend this. I apply morning and night, and it took about two weeks before I noticed a large improvement.. But realistically nothing works over night.
This is now my holy grail product, personally there's no ick factor for me. One of the best things I've applied to my skin.
I felt this was best for oily skin, as it left dry patches on my cheeks (it's coming into winter). Packaging is really great, particularly for its price, and I would repurchase to use either as a primer, over moisturiser, or exclusively on my T-section.
It may be fantastic in the humid summer months.
- ideal for adolescent/acne prone skin
- very inexpensive
- cute functional packaging
- texture similar to silicone based primers
- need moisturiser underneath if skin is combination or dry
this gel is very cheap for a 45ml packaging and snail cream, usually about 5-10USD/tube. the clear gel is not sticky after application, easily absorbed by the skin, especially with patting and it has no smell or very faint nice fragrance. my skin if very oily but this product makes me feel fresh and moisturized. i wish it works faster to reduce acne scars :p but i guess the mizon snail repair cream will work better than this one for that purpose.
Once you get over the idea that this product contains snail filtrate (snail secretion), you'll discover it's really a great find. Mizon contains 74% snail filtrate.
Snail products are all the rage in Asia and I wanted to try one. However I have oily skin and it seemed like every product I came across was a heavy cream or was in jar packaging, which I don't like. After doing much searching on ebay, I found this product made in Korea. It's a clear, odorless gel and comes in a tube.
Mizon's gel is perfect for oily skin. It absorbs right into your skin, leaving no greasy residue or tacky feel. It's supposed to help wrinkles and skin function in general. I'm not really sure it's helping on the wrinkle front, but my acne does seem to be healing more quickly since I started using it. The tube dispenses the product easily. The formula also contains some antioxidants.
Mizon's Snail Recovery Gel Cream is very inexpensive and readily available on Amazon and ebay. If you are interested in trying a snail product, this is an affordable way to do it.
