Hey friends! Remember I told you about my love for multi-functional things? So, when I came to know about this Korean brand ‘Mizon’ and its popular ‘MULTI FUNCTION FORMULA ALL IN ONE SNAIL REPAIR CREAM’, I had to give it a try.
I received this product nearly after a month (as I had to get it ship it to my country) I ordered it online(I will paste the link down) so the anticipation of using it was killing me. As much as I wanted to use it immediately, I did a patch test first to see whether my skin is allergic to it or if I am getting some sort of reactions at least 48 hours prior. It is the most necessary yet one of the most overlooked step. Because snail is something not all of us had been in contact with and so our body is unaware about how to react to such things when applied. Luckily I had no such reactions or allergy so I applied it but if you notice anything out of the place, wash it off immediately.
Now, let’s begin with the review. I am a sucker for a nice packaging and so when I first got this product my exact thoughts were, “Wow! Cool packaging”. The box is a bit bronze colored and shiny and the bottle is made up of thick good quality glass (which won’t break easily, I know it from experience) with a black lid. All in all it looked quite classy to me exactly what I like. Inside there is one more plastic lid.
The product claims – Containing of snail filtrate 92% this original snail mucus takes care of your all kinds of skin problems in all in one skin care system on your first skin care step. It repairs tired and aging skin, leaving it refreshed. It is also first protector of your naked skin. Sounds impressive, doesn’t it?
The box says that – As your first skin care step, apply proper amount of it to over face and let it be absorbed into deep skin.
There is long list of ingredients given which contains a lot of flower and leaf extracts, sodium hyaluronate (hyaluronic acid), copper tripeptide-1, fh-oligopeptidde-1, etc. Although the list is quite impressive, it does contain ingredients like hydrogenated vegetable oil, alcohol derivatives, dimethicone which might act as potential acne triggers to some.
When I first tried to scoop it up for use, it was difficult to do so due to its slimy texture so I tried to just dip my finger and use only little that was there on it. Surprisingly it was enough to cover my entire face. As you can see I was using it for more than a month and less than one quarter got finished.
My skin felt soft on application from first time itself and I got a bit of a dewy look. But it’s not moisturizing enough so you might need to apply additional moisturizer. It feels as if the cream gets instantly absorbed.
It does give your skin glow and add plumpness to your skin so if wrinkles or lack of collagen is your worry, do give it a try. It doesn’t feel sticky as lot of creams do, so that’s a plus point. If you wear makeup you don’t have to worry. After few days I did notice a healthy glow to my skin which I love about it. Also, it helped diminish acne scars and blemishes quite quickly which is an another plus point.
But as I live in a place where it is hot and humid during most of the time of year. And I having oily skin didn’t help either. During daytime my face was a big sticky mess. On touching it felt as if the cream was forming a barrier and not letting my skin to breathe. And after using it for nearly 3 weeks I got three big pimples on my cheeks!! (Sweat acne). But if you live somewhere where it is cold you must give it a try. I am going to try it again once the winter arrives.
