[Review] Mizon All-in-one Snail Repair Cream

Wednesday, December 3, 2014

Hello, lovelies! I heard a lot of good things about this cream (and creams that contain snail extract in general), and since I needed a new moisturizing cream I decided to give this one a try. Let's take a closer look at this product.

Description
What it Claims: "92% of snail extracts repairs fine scars from skin troubles and wrinkles.Various plant extracts help skin to keep healthy by rich moisturizing, nourishing and protecting skin."
So, this cream claims to repair acne scar, improve wrinkles, large pores, even out dark skin tones, easy irritated skin, and help the skin to keep healthy and moisturized. That's a lot of claims!

Main components: Snail Secretion 92%, Centella Asiatica, Adenosine, Peptide, β-glucan, Green Tea Extract, Hysluronic Acid, Betula Platyphylla Japonica Juice, Dimethicone, Portulaca Oleracea Extract, Hydrogented Vegetable Oil

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.


This is an amazing cream and I highly recommend it to those who have oily or normal skin during all seasons, especially if you are prone to dark spots and mild acne. It will definitely work well with dry skin too, but it might not give you enough moisture when the weather is cold/dry. I would say that this is a perfect cream for everyone to use during summer or those who live where the climate is warm all year round. If you have the "right" skin type, this cream definitely keeps all what it claims.

  1. I've considered buying this cream before since my skin becomes as dry as Sahara's desert during winter time so I'm glad to have read this review. Thank you for writing it ^o^

    But since you say that it doesn't seem moisturizing enough for you and we live in the same climate (Sweden & Denmark), I think this cream isn't for me either > <
