Review: Mizon Snail Recovery Gel Cream

Ayo beauties! It's been so long since I have been missing in action. I was even contemplating if I should go back or what since I really do not have the time to produce entries anymore. Good thing, I was inspired to continue by a new friend! Hi there Alyssa! ^^

I will do my best to get entries up during my not-so-much free time. There has been too much stress that I felt I need a break. But hey, duty calls, that is why don't have much chance to see the sun lately. Everyday is like just me and the air conditioner. Hello dry skin! Yikes. Dry skin makes my pores more prominent, another problem eh? Based on my story you can tell that my skin haven't been spoiled much lately. Mizon Snail Recovery Gel Cream to the rescue. Yay, something I bought online after some research. I am intrigued on what wonders Snail Filtrate can do to my skin so I gave in.

What Mizon Snail Recovery Gel Cream says:

 Rejuvenate your skin using the powerful ability of snails!
Snail Slime’s Surprising Regeneration!

1. Regenerate your skin, the same way snails regenerate their own shell!
The benefit to human was discovered after workers in a snail farm found that the skin of their hands was baby soft after handling the snails all day. Therefore it’s obvious that what restores a snails shell can have equally astounding reaction on human skin.

2. What is snail slime extract? Snail slime is a source of copper peptides. Most of the research on copper peptides relates to wound healing and there is a large base of evidence that the same magical effects can repair wrinkles.

Highly Recommended For:
- Acne scars
- Sensitive and tired skin due to environmental factors
- Skin pores losing elasticity / large pores
- Uneven dark skin tone
- Irritated skin from shaving or skin clinic procedures
- Increasing fine wrinkles from losing moisture and elasticity

Korean No.1 Snail Cream contains at least 92% of Snail excretion.
Don't be fooled by cheap creams which only contain less than 10% of the active snail excretion ingredient. This is the only one with so many quality ingredients, including vitamins.

Buy with confidence. * Why is it so famous Snail Cream in Korea? Mizon Snail Cream is a miraculous cream made with the natural secretion of the snail. It improves skin elasticity and supplying nutrition to the skin, in a concentrated and optimal way by utilizing scientific cosmetic technology. It prevents skin problems, which can be cause by various factors, and keep the skin youthful and healthy by protecting and regenerating.

Snail Secretion Filtrate – This product is comprised of 74% snail mucin. Snail mucin is skin friendly because it contains an array of antioxidants, and proteins as well as elastin and glycolic acid. It’s also antimicrobial, and in addition to being shown to effectively promote wound healing in a couple of in-vitro studies, there was a newer study released in April of this year that showed snail secretion to be effective when it comes to repairing photodamage. It’s especially helpful for acne, overall skin tone, and reducing acne scarring. (Study: Effects of Snail Secretion Filtrate on Photoaged Skin)

What it is?
A gel type of skin moisturizer which is said to have anti-aging and healing properties. You can tell that I'm sold on their claim to give elasticity to pores.

Tube type packaging is simply cute. Just the right size filled with 45ml. snail goodie. There is even a seal to prove its authenticity. It is hygienic and the plastic tube is pink! Need I say more?

My Experience:
Mizon Snail Recovery Gel Cream has a similar color and texture to a jelly. It is thick like a cream but spreads like a gel. It is unscented (but has a distinct very faint smell) and leaves a cool soothing feeling to the skin once applied. I usually use this before going to bed as a night cream and before applying make-up as a make-up base. I notice that my face looks fresh when I wake up. Besides seeing radiant skin day after day I noticed that my skin looks firmer as well. However I can't attest if it reduced wrinkles because I got none of those yet.

How much and Where to Buy? P295/ 45 ml. tube in Facebook Korean online shops.

What I love?
  • It's a good make-up base
  • Soothing to the skin
  • Skin looks radiant the next day
  • Not sticky nor greasy.
  • Did not broke me out
  • Easily absorbed by skin but leaves a thin film afterwards
 What I don't?
  • Product is not accessible
  • Sadly no visible changes on pores (which was expected)
  • Not moisturizing
  • Does not clear up acne nor lighten scars
Tap tap your skin for better product absorption.
Can be a good makeup base or night cream.
Do not forget to moisturize because this baby does not hydrate skin.

Will I repurchase?
Yes. Mizon Snail Cream is 74% snail filtrate, natural and not to mention affordable. I would not mind repurchasing because it has a multi-functional product for me: makeup base and night cream.

So far I have not experience drastic change based on what Mizon Snail Recovery Gel Cream promises. However I am positive that natural products can give visible results with continuous usage. Natural products are safe and okay to be use for a prolonged time so I wouldn't worry. If you would want to try out snail secretion filtrate products then you might want to try this first before venturing into more expensive snail products.
 JUST AN UPDATE: Yay~ Lookie! I've thought of adding more fiber into my diet by eating oatmeal for breakfast. I've bought two different brands of the same oatmeal flavor I like for Cerelac - Banana! <3



  1. LOVE IT! <3 WAY TO GO! :3

  2. I have started using anti aging cream by lifecell and the results are awesome. I would love to try the recovery gel cream.

  3. Seems like a good product for skin nourishment. I have tried a lot of products for keeping my skin safe and glowing but we must use dna total repair for retaining the skin glow and keep it safe from radiation.
