I bought this Snail Solution from Nature Republic on my recent trip to Seoul. Snail slime is supposed to be good if you have sensitive , easily inflamed skin. I have very sensitive skin and always get red patches when I wash my face after waking up, so I decided to give it a go.
I really like the way Koreans package their products..you can just tell that they’ve put some effort into it and it’s not all haphazard. Anyways, this is what the set I bought looks like on the outside. You can choose to get the products individually if you do not want the whole set or want them in bigger sizes.
And when you open it up, you’ll see three different products and a spatula for the tub of snail cream. The Cream is full size, the other two is sold in bigger sizes individually. I don’t use the spatula, since I only ever go into the jar with clean fingers and using the spatula is one more thing to wash and keep clean.
Here are the names of the products up close. I was told by the salesperson to use the Booster first, secondly the Cream, then lastly the Emulsion so that’s what I’ve been doing. Since I started using this set of products, I no longer wake up with tight, dry and flaky skin, and my skin didn’t have red patches after I washed it. I could feel that my skin has been hydrated and the hydration has been “locked in” to my skin instead of being lost to the evil air-conditioner which I cannot live without.
I’ve been using these three products (nothing else except for my eye cream) for about 10 days now, and seriously, I totally recommend it to anyone who has sensitive skin, dry patches, red/inflamed skin issues. I’ve only been using it for 10 days and yet I already see the benefits! And actually, the morning after the first time I used it, I’ve already seen the amazing effect, so I’m really confident that this will definitely help my skin a lot more in the long run.
This set retails for 69,000KRW in the city shops, but I got it cheaper at the airport AND they were having a Buy 1 Get 1 promo so it was absolutely worth it. Even without any promotions I find that it’s pretty reasonable for something that works so well. If you have friends in Korea right now, get them to check it out for you! Or else, you can also get these products on Gmarket.
Cheers to our lovely helpful Snail friends!
