Shoppers say the product absorbs quickly into the skin (minus the tackiness), offers deep hydration and leaves a nice silky smooth glow behind. If you open TikTok and search #snailmucin, you'll find tons of creators raving about the essence. As one TikToker says, "It is indeed effective to restore skin's barrier and heal blemishes. I have a skin condition called eczema and it has calmed down my flares so much."
It's also a hit on Amazon. It's the number one best-selling product in the facial serums and unique beauty category—and the 29,000 5-star reviews are proof. One reviewer says it completely transformed her skincare routine: "This essence is a true game-changer when it comes to combating dullness and repairing damaged skin. With its exceptional formulation and impressive results, it has become an indispensable step in my Korean skincare regimen."
The only con that some reviewers point out is the texture can be a little thick, so a little goes a long way. It's also suggested to do a patch test before going full in on the essence as it may be irritating to some skin types.
