MIZON All In One Snail Repair Cream is famous product from snail line of Brand Mizon, it is a very hyped Korean Beauty Product in the West. It is multi functional formula Cream with 92% snail mucin extract which claims to resolve multiple skin concern. In Korean Skin Care, ingredients like Snail Mucin Extract, Centella Asiatica, Propolis, Rice, bamboo, aloe vera, Honey, Placenta 😯, Clay, etc are very popular, the only difference is in the concentration and quality inculcated in formulation of a product. Snail Mucin extract was one of the first crazy indulgence. 😜
Skin Type: MIZON All In One Snail Repair Cream is suitable for Combination to Oily Skin. It’s a no no for Dry skin. Why? Read On!!
Skincare Issue: MIZON All In One Snail Repair Cream claims to:
- Reduce Acne Scar.
- Address issues of skin sensitivity.
- Tightens Skin Pores.
- Improves uneven Dark Skin Tone.
- Calms irritated skin post shaving and skin clinic procedure.
- Reduce fine wrinkles.
- Retains Moisture in skin.

I bought MIZON All In One Snail Repair Cream to address my issue of fine lines around my eyes and to improve over all texture of my skin. Also, because I was curious about the hype of snail mucin products.
Not Suitable for: Dry skin! Skin Allergic to snail mucin or any of the ingredients used. I have very dry skin and I bought it to use in Summer to hydrate and plump my dull skin without stickiness (Dry and windy Summer).
Snail Secretion Filtrate, Cetearyl Olivate, Sorbitan Olivate, Cetearyl Alcohol, Stearic Acid, Glyceryl Stearate, Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil, Dimethicone, Triethanolamine, Carbomer, Butylene Glycol, Peg/ppg-17/6 Copolymer, Polyacrylate-13, Polyisobutene, Polysorbate 20, Sodium Polyacrylate, Caprylyl Glycol, Adenosine, Ethylhexylglycerin, Tropolone, Sodium Hyaluronate, Portulaca Oleracea Extract, Betula Platyphylla Japonica Juice, Arnica Montana Flower Extract, Artemisia Absinthium Extract, Achillea Millefolium Extract, Gentiana Lutea Root Extract, Alcohol, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Centella Asiatica Extract, Copper Tripeptide-1, Rh-oligopeptide-1, Propylene Glycol, Rubus Idaeus (Raspberry) Fruit Extract, Beta-glucan, Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-4, Disodium Edta
Ingredients looks very promising. Other than many plants based Extract, I personally looked out for Snail Secretion Filtrate, Adenosine, Centella Asiatica and Rh-Oligopeptide. These ingredients are surfing on many korean skin care products and are considered really good for skin.
CosDNA: The cosdna lists out many incredibles ingredients, and few red flags. But considering the number of great ingredients used, this can be accepted! Still if you are acne prone or allergic to any ingredients, do a patch test for at least 2-4 days before using on your entire face. (Hold your excitement for any new product)!! 😛
How to use: People with Combination to Oily skin, Living in Humid-Hot Region can use this alone as your moisturizer, but the Skin which is more towards Drier side or if MIZON All In One Snail Repair Cream is to be used during Winter, it is only to be used as first step of your skin care and then follow up with other skin care products. (I know this sounds very confusing! A cream as first step!! 😕 ).
The suggested Steps are:
- Toner (If you are having and want to use it, but I will not recommend to use it, as this might reduce efficacy of the product.)
- Mizon All in One Snail Repair Cream (This should be your first step).
- Essence/ Serum/ Ampoule.
- Eye Cream
- Emulsion/ Lotion
Packaging and Dispenser: MIZON All In One Snail Repair Cream comes in a small but heavy brown colored glass tub with capacity of 75 ml. The lid is of plastic (not of great quality) in black Color. Honestly the packaging is not that good. It is not Travel Friendly, it is heavy for such a small size, the jar can break and product spills very easily. 😒
No spatula is provided, at least not with my jar. The cream has to be scooped out just like any other cream that we use. I think that whole jar thing does not go with the consistency of the cream, A tube type packaging or preferably a pump type dispenser should have been provided. Again not happy with the dispenser part. 😒
Price: I purchased it for $33 from Flipkart. This is way more pricier than its actual MRP. It is usually somewhere around $15. This is why it is important to surf and surf before you buy!! I could have saved my money. Similar thing happened with my other Mizon products. 😭
Consistency/Texture/Fragrance: The consistency of a cream is more like a thick lotion but still very much like a fluid (I wish I could show you in picture). The texture is smooth like any other cream but bit slimy (not sticky!!). The only good part or strange part is that it gets completely absorbed on slight patting leaving no stickiness and later on, at least in my case (I have very dry skin) it felt completely dry. 🙄
It is fragrance free! 🙂 (In case you were wondering if it smelled bad!!) 😜
Do I recommend it? Maybe!! Only if:
- you are interested in using Snail Mucin Product.
- have Combination to dry skin.
- staying in hot and humid region (most importantly humid!!)
Will I repurchase? No!! Definitely Not!!
Conclusion: Honestly speaking I couldn’t understand this product. Firstly, It was supposed to be used at first step, which I found very late and secondly, it was not at all moisturising even during summer. As I have already mentioned, minutes after applying, my skin felt dry and stiff as if I have not applied anything.
I thought that I was using very less product, so I tried layering it and even tried slathering lot of product at once and finally my product got over in less than 20 days. As per the mentioned circumstances, my final thoughts are:
- Reduced Acne Scar: I didn’t have any at that time, so no comment!
- Addressed issue of skin sensitivity: Not sure!
- Tightened Skin Pores: Nah!
- Improved uneven Dark Skin Tone: Nah!
- Calmed irritated skin post shaving and skin clinic procedure: Nah!
- Reduce fine wrinkles: Not sure!!
- Retains Moisture in skin: No!! Not!!
- Helps in skin Generation: What!! No!! what the heck will I notice in 20 days or so??
I know this is very low. But I can’t help, considering the fact 1. the money I paid and 2. how much it was raved in the west!!! Seriously, I haven’t understood MIZON All In One Snail Repair Cream at all! It actually did nothing (at least in my case). The only plus point was that it didn’t react on my dry sensitive skin and very slightly it reduced fine lines around my eyes (not sure). This was among my initial purchases that I made in rage of reining all the K-Beauty Products. I should have researched more! We learn from our mistake! Do tell me in the comment section below if MIZON All In One Snail Repair Cream was hit or a miss for you!! 🙂
The strange thing is that the brand Mizon seems to be more famous outside South Korea!! I haven’t come across any Korean American raving about it! 🤔
After I finished this, I started using Cosrx Advanced Snail 92 All in one cream, next Review will be on it as I am almost done with it. So, stay tuned.
That’s All Folks!!
