Today I'm going to be talking about my first experience with Snail Slime Skincare! If you're gagging a little I definitely don't blame you, this little pottle has been sitting in my tester drawer for quite some time because I didn't believe that it would help me and assumed it was super gross. How wrong I was.

Hot Issue of Snail Slime Cosmetics! In 1980’s, Bascunan Family in Chile started raising snails to provide them to France for food. It was amazing that small injuries or infections of snail keepers’ hands heal up quickly without leaving a scar and their hands get brighter and softer as time goes by. This led Fernando Bascunan, a dermatologist, carry out scientific studies to find that snail slime contains natural complex making the skin regenerated. This proves that snail slime makes damaged skin cells heal up without infections and helps recover damaged snail shell. The same principle applies to human skin.
Highly moisturizing and nutritive MISSHA Super Aqua Cell Renew Snail Series has been developed to improve skin texture by containing full vital snail slime to prevent and recover skin damage while strengthen skin barrier to minimize skin irritation. (1)

This snail slime skincare item has a milky white colour and gel texture. It smells pleasantly like flowers and not at all like snail slime (which is surprising considering it is 40% snail mucus). This moisturizer has a soft matte finish, feels surprising light on the skin and doesn't make me oily! I've been using this cream morning and night for one week and I actually swear I can see an improvement on my acne scarring. I have no solid proof (I try not to take photos when my skin is icky because it makes me sad) so I will get back to you on that claim!

Would I Purchase This Product?
It's expensive, but I would actually purchase this product! I feel like I haven't said this in forever, but even though this product is near $70NZD. I really like the texture, scent, finish and results I've seen. My curiosity has also been piqued in relation to other snail slime products! ^.^

Have you tried Snail Slime skincare? What are your favourite Snail Slime products?


  1. This product seems super interesting! Although the thought of snail slime isn't too appealing, I would love to try it out :)

  2. A lot of people like this line from Missha. I bought a gift set for my Mom and she liked it also a lot.

  3. How do they harvest the slime? Do they squish up the snails to get it, or can they get the slime from the snail without killing it? Why am I asking these questions haha...
