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 supposedly a large base of evidence that the same magical effects can repair wrinkles.
How to Use: Apply a proper amount to face. Rub and pat gently for complete absorbation.
Packaging & Container
This cream comes in a fancy metallic bronze-colored box. The container itself is a solid (and quite heavy) glass container with a plastic screw-on lid.
(Pic to the left) When first opening it, there was another thin plastic lid for protection.
It doesn't come with a Spatula, but you can easily get a pack for a low price on eBay (like the one in the picture above).
Texture & Scent
The texture is quite slimy and watery, but it's actually surprisingly pleasant! It goes on really smoothly when applying it to the face. It simply feels like a slimy layer of moisture, which does leave a slightly sticky feeling at first, but it quickly absorbs into my skin. This product doesn't seem to be artificially perfumed. I can feel a faint scent of something when I really try, but it's barely there! I don't mind scented products, but I definitely also like when they're not scented at all since it gives a me a feeling that the product is more natural and gentle on the skin.
Results & Opinion
My skin type is usually oily, but in Winter it turns into combination skin; Very dry overall, but still oily in the T-Zone. Because of this, it is essential for me to keep my skin moisturized while keeping my skin from breaking out, especially during winter. I have used this cream every morning and night for about 2 weeks now. It gives my skin a soft and matte feeling, without making it feel neither dry nor oily. However, I don't feel like it's moisturizing enough to for me during winter. It has definitely helped to keep my occasional breakouts at bay and I can see that the faults, like dark spots and pores, in my complexion have improved. But if I use this as my only moisturizer in my morning skin care routine, my skin gets a little drier than I want it to be when I go outside during cold winter days.
