CORSX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence, review

Today’s review is about COSRX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence, a renowned skin care product in the Asian market cosmo.
Snail Mucin? It may sound weird or gross but this secretion, properly prepared for human usage, is proved to fight ageing and hydration loss while helping to repair skin damages.

CORSX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence, as well as giving the instruction for a correct use.

Real Power Essence raising the innate strength of the skin”.... The filtered snail mucin contained in Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence penetrates under the skin into the invisible, working against damaged skin”.
Are all these claims true? Let’s find out.

CORSX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence is a face treatment almost entirely consisting of pure snail extract. To be exact, this essence contains 96% of pure filtered snail slime.
But, what’s a face essence? When it comes finding the exact difference between essences and serums, there are some disputes and confusion over the net, nevertheless, their textures can be quite similar, but it's a treatment that goes after toner and before any serums and face cream.

THE PRODUCT: packaging and texture
CORSX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence is contained inside a sleek and sturdy 100-ml matte plexiglass bottle.
Directions of use, both in English and Korean, are stamped all over the box which comes in handy. It’s suitable for all skin type and it’s recommended in case of acne, post acne scars, dehydrated and problematic skin.
COSRX face essence is a clear product, almost scentless, with a jelly running texture. It may appear sticky but it gets absorbed into the skin very quickly.
It’s extremely light and seems to disappear once spread.

THE EFFECT
I was curious and scared because I know snail slime is very powerful, but this essence doesn’t irritate my sensitive and dry face areas, namely my cheeks and around my nose.
It immediately leaves my skin smooth, ready to receive my moisturiser afterwards.
In 3 days, I got the first visible improvements: smoother texture, supple skin (less dry patches), thus more elasticity.
In one week, in just 7 days, my skin luminosity has increased and my pores started shrinking in size. Plus, with months of regular use, I’ve seen my fine lines around my eyes less visible: a gratifying result.
I had no fear to go outside without a full make-up, but just under eye concealer and some face powder.

HOW TO USE: directions and suggestions
This CORSX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence works very fast but it needs some precautions:
since it shrinks pores, I absolutely recommend to use lighter, oil-free hydrating creams and to wash your face always with warm water in order to “open up” your pores and clean your skin deeply, otherwise some breakouts and blackheads can occur.
I also highly recommend not forgetting to protect every inch of your skin, where the essence has been applied. Indeed, I’ve noticed that this snail essence sensitises skin to sunlight, thus some sunspots can appear without proper sunscreen. I do love applying CORSX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence also on my décolletage, where it has improved my skin texture, and I can’t forget to apply my SPF moisturiser there!
So far a great product that’s easy to use:
one drop is enough for the whole face. It has to be rubbed, till it gets absorbed into the skin, while a bit of essence has to be gently dabbed around the eye area. I suggest to use it also along neck and décolletage for homogeneous results. Don’t be scared, if you rub it, it won’t make your skin red or itchy.

PROS:

it’s delicate
it's effective (smoothes and evens skin texture, hydrates, regulates sebum, shrinks pores)
it's light
it dries quickly
it doesn’t irritate the skin
its packaging is sturdy
the pump dispenser avoids mess and wastage
it’s almost scentless
it has no synthetic perfume (ingredient)

CONS:
it increases skin sensitivity to sunlight
it’s just available online

You can see from the “before and after pictures” how my skin has changed after months of extending applications: my pores have been refined, despite some blackheads still continue to appear on my forehead, both my skin tone and texture get better.
Overall, my skin looks, feels to the touch and is smoother, radiant and very hydrated, so much that sometimes I forget my toner and night cream. Mea culpa!
Take my challenge: change your skin care routine, adopt snail slime, then “go naked” around the street and post a photo of yourself without make-up!
I did it on IG...
CORSX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence has been my very first essence, as well as my first CORSX product, and it’s part of my permanent skin regimen.

Do I recommend it? Absolutely yes. Despite it can be bought mainly online and unfortunately isn’t a vegan product, I think it’s an effective treatment.
You can find the 
CORSX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence online at Cosrx e-store and beauty store specialised in Asian skincare and cosmetics. EU and UK residents can find it easily at Glamourflare at 15£.

I needed some time to fully understand how to use and combine this COSRX essence with other products in order to get the maximum results and I think, as well as I can show by myself, I’ve done it!
