This highly concentrated essence, Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence, protects the skin from moisture loss while promoting a smooth and healthy skin barrier. Applied post-cleanser and -toner, this works to fade dark spots, improve hydration, and smooth skin texture — leaving the skin soft and dewy. The lightweight texture absorbs into the skin fast, giving a natural glow.
One user raved about the essence’s effects on Amazon writing: “This is my first amazon review, but I just had to get on here and write it because this product completely exceeded my expectations. The idea of putting some random snail goop on your face was weird to me, but I must say I am SOLD. This product is clear, light, and very thin and absorbs quickly after putting on. It also is completely odorless! If the label didn’t say snail, you wouldn’t know it’s from a snail. I suffer from rosacea and have some acne scarring, and this stuff has evened out my skin tone so well. It works as a stand-alone moisturizer or something you put on underneath moisturizer. SO WORTH THE MONEY!.”
The COSRX patches flatten raised blemishes, rendering them significantly less prominent; moreover, they lessen redness by calming pimple-induced inflammation. However, most notable is their speed and efficacy – these patches work at another level.
Shoppers are enthralled with the COSRX pimple patches and one reviewer explained how s/he was awestruck by the speed and efficacy these patches work: “Amazing product – The best spot/pimple zapper ever. Literally overnight magic! Love the different sizes too. Recommended by a professional Makeup artist … 5-star product!”
Another reviewer praised that “If you have inflamed pimple, it literally takes out the gunk out of it overnight, and helps calm the skin. The pimple is not gonna disappear by morning, but it will not be bumpy and inflamed, only a bit red. So this definitely will speed up the process of healing.”
BHA Blackhead Power Liquid, an exfoliating toner made with 4% natural beta hydroxy acid – which helps to gently remove dead surface skin cells. This gentle exfoliation helps to unclog pores over time and lower your chances of breakouts. The toner is easy to use. As the solution is relatively concentrated, start by sparingly sweeping it over your face with a cotton pad once a week, avoiding the delicate skin around your eyes and lips. Excessive use may damage your skin barrier, and make your skin more sensitive and prone to redness.
One consumer left a review on Amazon: “I am never without this product. BHA is an oil-soluble acid that cleans out pores and helps fight inflammation. It is amazing for keeping skin clear and/or helping to clear a breakout. This particular product is safe for fungal acne and is a great texture, with no fragrance and minimal ingredients. I mix a small amount of sulfur powder into this product to use as a spot treatment overnight. Works like a charm.”
