Hey beauties,

Welcome back to Halsadiya Beauty Blog💃🏾. I can’t believe it’s over a month since my last blog post. I’ve been sick for like half of this month 😩. I’ve taken couple of drugs and IV injections in the last few days. I hate drugs 🤢🤧

Let’s get straight to this post. My skincare routine had been bomb for couple of months. And you guys know I’m all about COSRX Skincare brand ❤. My skin type has moved from an oily combination skin to a normal skin tho still sensitive 😁. I ain’t got no worries bout my skin because the moment your skin meets COSRX, you can expect tomorrow 💃🏾.

If someone have told me a couple of years ago that I would be rubbing snail mucin all over my face, I would have laughed out my soul 😂. But here I am, in love with this product and can’t live without it. I’m a huge fan of COSRX, so I try as much as possible to get any product I lay my hands on. I bought the Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence from @shopmodavracha on Instagram for #10.000 NGN.

So what’s in this stuff? It’s actually Essence

If you’re unfamiliar, essences are popular in Asian skin care routinesfor their extra moisturizing powers, and have made their way Stateside in recent years. They can range from a really watery texture to a thicker jelly, and are used after toning and before serums or moisturizers to add extra hydration. They also help your following products absorb even better. – Glamour

COSRX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence has a whopping 96% snail secretion filtrate for super intense repair and hydration. Think of this like vitamins for your face since it’s loaded with replenishing and revitalizing nutrients to help prevent and repair damage, giving you ultimate elasticity and hydration.

Snail mucin has the ability to repair everything from dry patches, to acne breakouts while helping zap hyperpigmentation, so with loyal use your skin will glow to look its healthiest. It’s great for all skin types.

INGREDIENTS: Snail Secretion Filtrate 96%, Betaine, Butylene Glycol, 1,2-Hexanediol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Panthenol, Arginine, Allantoin, Ethyl Hexanediol, Sodium Polyacrylate, Carbomer, Phenoxyethanol

▪ PACKAGING: It comes in the regular white cardbox, with a light yellow and black design towards the upper side of the cardbox. Inside holds a pretty sturdy plastic and a nozzle

TEXTURE: has a lightweight texture, but sits closer to the jelly end of the spectrum and feels a little sticky to the touch.

HOW TO USE: After cleansing and toning, apply a small amount on your entire face. Gently pat using fingertips to aid absorption, and then go forth with your moisturizers.

MY REVIEW: This essence is so awesome. I do notice a difference in my skin whenever I’m wearing the essence and whenever I’m not wearing it. I use it regularly, it’s slimey, hydrating and refreshing.

It keeps my skin well moisturized, smooth and glowing. Although, I have no major skin concerns, but I read reviews from others with skin concerns like acne, hyperpigmentation, redness, pimples, oily and dry skin and this product helps to prevent and repair skin damages.

FINAL THOUGHT: My experience with the snail mucin Essence is wonderful. I’m obsessed with this essence and I will definitely repurchase – not once but more than a hundred times 😁

  1. Saving all these for the day I start earning to buy ’em all

  2. This is pretty educating.
    I don’t believe beauty rips are solely for women, men should know them as well so they can appreciate what their women use on their skin and faces…and know how to advise them as well.
    Thanks for the knowledge Leemah…
