I am back with a review of the CosRx Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence, a popular Korean skincare product that features snail mucin as its main ingredient. According to the brand, this essence is designed to target dull, rough skin, dark spots, acne scars and damaged skin. However, it is recommended to do a patch test for those with sensitive skin as some individuals may be allergic to snail mucin.
SNAIL MUCIN BENEFITS
Snail mucin is known to have various benefits for the skin such as reducing fine lines and wrinkles, hydrating, soothing, promoting the production of elastin fibres and collagen, repairing the skin barrier, and promoting cell regeneration. This product contains 96.3% skin boosting ingredient snail secretion filtrate, which is lightweight and absorbs quickly into the skin, providing a natural glow and keeping skin moisturized throughout the day.

TEXTURE & CONSISTENCY
The texture of the essence is well interesting, it is slimy with a gel like consistency.
Skin Type – Normal Sensitive
Chemical exfoliators and retinol had left my skin looking flushed and in need of something extra. That’s when I came across the Cosrx snail mucin essence, a product that promised to do just that. I had heard so much about this essence in the online community and its ability to hydrate, smooth and repair the skin, that I decided to give it a try.
I was in need of a product that would calm the redness on my skin and improve its texture. And so, I found myself in possession of a small bottle of Cosrx snail mucin essence, filled with the promise of hydration and repair. I paired it with my Physiogel Calming Relief A.I. Lotion and crossed my fingers in hopes that it would be the solution I had been searching for.
To my delight, the essence did not contain any fragrance, essential oils, or alcohol, making it the perfect match for my sensitive skin. A little goes a long way with this product, a single pump is all I need for my entire face. Despite its slimy texture, the essence is very thin and absorbs quickly into my skin, leaving no sticky residue. However, if I don’t use a moisturizer after applying the essence, my skin starts to feel tight and dry within an hour.
Overall, I am impressed with the Cosrx snail mucin essence and its ability to soothe and repair my sensitive skin. It has become a staple in my skincare routine and I have no intention of giving it up anytime soon.
Everything seemed nice in the beginning, However, my journey with this product was not without its challenges. No matter how diligently I applied the essence to my skin, there seemed to be no change in my condition. I was tempted to abandon my quest and give up the bottle to the depths of my medicine cabinet.
As it turns out, the snail mucin essence is not a magic potion that will instantly transform your skin. And as the days passed, I began to notice a subtle transformation in my skin. The redness from retinol use that had once been a constant companion began to fade. The essence seemed to work its magic, promoting wound healing and repairing the barrier of my skin.
It’s important to note that if you already have a good skin barrier, the effects of the essence may not be as pronounced as it primarily increases hydration levels. But for me and those with a compromised skin barrier, this product is something that works as promised in healing the skin. Nothing less, Nothing more.

Why has it got the lowest ppm of a 1000 while the recommendation is between 2000 -10000
Generally, a concentration of 0.1% to 2% sodium hyaluronate is commonly used in skincare products. However, the optimal percentage may depend on factors such as the product’s formulation, the skin type, and the intended use.
What it indicates if producet smells very badly and non transparent
Hello, If a skin product smells bad and becomes non-transparent, it usually means that it has expired or been contaminated, and using such products can potentially cause skin irritation, thus it is recommended to stop using them.
