Snail Guts On My Face!?

So we all know Korean skincare products are amazingly out of this world. But why? Because of their willingness to try ingredients you'd least expect. For example, snail mucin, aka snail guts. (This is not an April Fools joke by the way.)

"You seriously want me to slather snail guts all over my face!?"

This was the first thought that came into my head when I read about how great adding snail guts are to your skincare regimen. Who would've thought that such a weird looking little creature could work magic on your skin. The snail mucin ingredient was first discovered by Korean cosmetic companies and later caught the attention of many others around the world. So to answer the question, yes, I highly recommend you add the snail mucin ingredient to your regimen.

I've probably used the words "snail guts" one too many times already but it's seriously because I can't wrap my mind about how weird but great it is at the same time. The ingredient has magical powers to help fade acne scars, clear your complexion, smooth the skin, and give you the brightening effect that Korean products are known for. Knowing what I was interested in, I went to the Face Shop (my favorite Korean skincare brand) to see what they had and was I overwhelmed! From cleansers, to moisturizers, masks, etc., snail mucin came in every type of skincare form out there. I decided to go with a cleanser as it's my favorite part of a skincare routine.

I've been using this cleanser for a few weeks now and I am in love! It's a bold statement but this is the best cleanser I've ever come across of. This is saying a lot for me because I've pretty much tired every cleanser out there to purchase at Sephora. My acne-prone skin has been experiencing less breakouts and as promised, I can see my complexion clearing up and the amazing brightening effect. What about the smell? Amazing! You'd assume such a product would come with a terrible smell but it smells so refreshing! Since I'm having such an amazing experience with this cleanser, I have a few more snail infused products on my current wish list.

Who would've thought snail guts would be the answer to all my acne problems. If anyone else has tried or is in love with a snail mucin facial product, I would love to hear about it!
