I got this as a gift from a wonderful friend. I love Fiddy Snails blog and was fawning over the snail goodness and my dear friend ordered it in exchange for a review.
I was so pleased to see the Fiddy Snails set logo that I’m keeping the box. Call me a fan girl. I won’t deny the truth here.
This is the inside of the box freshly opened. I have to warn you that this is a photo heavy post. Don’t worry… He got me more boxes so you have more photo filled fun coming soon.
The info card has a description written by Jude herself. I’m keeping that too. It explains that snail mucin in skincare isn’t really all that new. So let’s stop being freaked out ok?
What it is:
Snail mucin is scientifically and dermatologically proven to be highly effective and beneficial when it comes to skin cell regeneration and repair. COSRX’s Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence contains 96% of snail secretion filtrate blended with other nourishing herbal extracts. Problems like acne, sun damage and scars need skin cell regeneration which this highly-concentrated essence offers. It repairs the skin from within and gives the skin proper moisture and nourishment for its full recovery. Expect smoother, softer and healthier skin with this premium snail essence!
How to use
After washing and toning your face, dispense 3 to 4 pumps of the essence onto your palm. Rub your hands together to warm the product then massage gently all over your face and neck. Pat gently for better absorption.
COSRX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence ingredients: Snail secretion filtrate, betaine, butylene glycol, 1,2-hexanediol, sodium hyaluronate, panthenol, arginine, allantoin, ethyl hexanediol, sodium polyacrylate, carbomer, phenoxyethanol
COSDNA Analysis pretty clean! Watch out if you are sensitive to Butylene Glycol, it’s a low level trigger but it is there.
Now this is probably my third or forth bottle. I slather it everywhere. Listen man that 96 in the title stands for the percentage of snail mucin. I really love the healing powers. I suffer from slow healing skin and snail products totally help. I love this stuff. I use it almost every day.
Pro tip: Try it after a bikini wax (post BHA if you do that (I do.) I swear it makes the skin heal ultra fast.

Infused with pure marine collagen and snail slime filtrate, this cream is jampacked with nutrients that promote moisture and firmness of the skin.

As I said I’ve used this mask before and I love it. I would use it more if the price were just a little more wallet friendly. At $5 each I won’t be using this mask 2-3 times a week as recommended. Sorry guys, I’m on a budget.
4/5 for the mask
I would 100% get this box again. For $34 I think it’s an awesome value. The box ranks a 5/5!
1- I want both my money and the time I spent using this product back. It should never be used and if I encounter another in my collection it goes to the trash bin.
2- The product is nothing special but not horrible. I would use it again or give it away if I got it as a free sample.
3-The product is nice enough but I would not repurchase because I have many better options. May be better suited for others
4-I really like this and would likely repurchase if I do not find something better.
5-I love this product and it has become a staple in my collection.
So now you know what the numbers mean!
