Hello Beautiful!! Today I am happy to write a review on one of the product of my favorite brand Cosrx. Not just the brand but the primary ingredient is also my favorite. Yes, the product is Cosrx Advanced Snail 92 All in one cream and as the name suggest, the active ingredient is the “snail mucin extract”…ewwwww…. but it is no where near to anything gross!! 🤓. The product is simple, affordable and wonderful..!! I am not gonna spill everything… You gotta scroll to read more!! 👇 By the end you will come to know why it is a cult favorite! 👍
Skin Type: Cosrx Advanced Snail 92 All in one cream is suitable for all skin type, it is specially formulated for dry and sensitive skin. People with Oily skin can nourish their skin during winter without the worry of stickiness or pore clogging and during summer they can enjoy Mizon Snail AIO Cream.
I had fun using this product on my dry and sensitive skin during dry and humid summer. 💃
Skincare Issue: As the name suggest that Snail Mucin Extract (92%) is the main ingredient, and this amazing stuff by itself is the multi-tasker. Here are some interesting skin benefit from using it:
- Aid in skin regeneration and repairing process.
- It prevent breakouts and maintain skin elasticity.
- Control skin dehydration (this is where even the oily skin need light moisturizer) and retains moisture. (Now, you can understand that a skin severely dehydrated from inside and an oil tank from outside is such a painful and confusing combination). One needs that Oil-water balance to keep random breakouts at a bay.
- Finally, helps in improving overall skin condition and texture.
- Also, other active ingredient adenosine aid in skin collagen improvement.
Now, you have simple but many reasons to try a snail product. This is a known product when it comes to snail mucin… I know I know… sounds little…or maybe too gross..!! 🤢😵 but worth trying. Don’t worry no snails were harmed in anyway…at least I am assured when it comes to brand Cosrx.
Not Suitable for: If unfortunately, you are allergic to snail Mucin or any other ingredients used or if you have extremely oily skin.
It’s always best to check Product ingredients list, even if it a cult favourite. I have learnt this in a hard way. 😭
CosDNA: Cosrx as a Brand is one of my favorite Korean Skincare Brand. Its simple and yet functional. Still it is very important to analyse the ingredients. In the Cosdna Analysis, few base ingredients are flagged. I guess these ingredients are tough to neglect as they form the preserving and formulating chemistry of a modern skincare products (OMG!! Did I say too much in defence) 😜
I have used Cosrx Advanced Snail 92 All in one cream during the bad time of my skin, when I had a breakout of my life and was also undergoing peeling treatment given by my dermatologist. This seriously gave a soothing effect on my dry flaking skin (Literally, it was flaking during to Peeling treatment). 🤕
How to use: Cosrx Advanced Snail 92 All in one cream as the name suggest it is a moisturizer and is to be used at the last step of a skincare routine, and if you are using an emulsion or a face lotion, then follow these with Cosrx Advanced Snail 92 All in one cream.
Suggested Simplified Routine, if you are using Cosrx Products with the snail line and this can be your Beginner K-Beauty Routine: (All Skin Type, extremely oily skin can skip the cream)
- Cosrx Low Ph Good Morning Gel Cleanser.
- Cosrx Centella Water Alcohol Free Toner.
- Cosrx Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence.
- Cosrx Advanced Snail 92 All in one cream.
Packaging and Dispenser : Cosrx Advanced Snail 92 All in one cream comes in sturdy Plastic double layered transparent tub type packaging but the lid is of tin I guess! Inside a spatula is provided to scoop out the product. Though it has a simple plastic packaging but the quality is not compromised. I am a fan of simple and quality packaging. I just wish that it came a Transparent Tube type packaging, that would have made it convenient, hygienic and travel friendly.
Quantity: Comes in good 100 ml quantity.
Price: $16 to $21, depending on different websites and offers available. Below are few recommendation, these are my favorite online Korean Store:
- Daisy Skinfix (for India only)
- Beauty Barn India (for India Only)
- Cosmetic Love
Consistency/Texture/Fragrance: The consistency is bit slimy + creamy + bit of gel like, also a bit runny, but not at all sticky, the texture smooth like any other cream and it has zero fragrance. (in case you were like….ewwww… what would that must have smelled like.?)
Absorbability: It absorbs instantly after few patting, do not rub it… it’s not gonna be of any use, it will only make it tough to blend. The best way is to spread it gently on skin and pat… pat…. pat! Doesn’t feel greasy, sticky or suffocating…. I feel that it simply calms the irritated skin.. that the immediate effect.
Do I recommend it? Yes of Course! Give it a try! It should be the first product if you are ever wondering to try a snail product. 😄
Will I repurchase? Yes! But later, after I finish using my Skincare Inventory! It’s getting huge by every month. 🤗
Conclusion: Cosrx Advanced Snail 92 All in one cream is a must try product not just from brand Cosrx but if you ever wanna try Korean Skincare Products for the ingredient Snail Mucin Extract. Since, it does not contain complex and multiple ingredients, you can judge clearly if snail mucin works or not or is it just another skincare gimmick! So, here is my final thought:
- Aid in skin regeneration and repairing process: Yes… not extensively, but I did see some result.
- It prevent breakouts and maintain skin elasticity: Yes. Most importantly, it calmed my skin.
- Control skin dehydration and retains moisture. Yes. But I am not sure, if it would work in winter, specially for the dry skin.
- Helps in improving overall skin condition and texture: Yes.
- Other active ingredient adenosine aid in skin collagen improvement: No, is this not too much to expect from a small jar? I can give this a pass!! Its an awesome cream not a magic wand! Relax! 😎
I reduced one point for not being sure, if it would work in winter for my dry skin and the packaging should be modified to transparent tube type. Rest is all good! I am glad that I purchased this product! This is an awesome product… at least deserve a try from every human!! (Am I being too much?? LOL!! 😝🙃 )
I love Cosrx Brand! Its Customer friendly! I have so many products to review…Literally everything except their BHA line. So, keep visiting!! 😍🤗
