There’s always that one product that your grandma “swears” by. That they have been using for years and completely adore. It isn’t always your nan, it can be your mother or your aunt’s son’s sister’s mother in law who swears by a product. They’ll rave about it non-stop and always name drop it when a crisis happens that could have been prevented or resolved by the miracle product.
That’s how I feel about Mizon Snail Recovery Gel Cream, this is my current “swear” by product. I know I haven’t been using it for years and only for about a month now but I honestly hands down would swear by this gel. The condition of my skin has improved drastically over the small amount of time I have been using it which is rather shocking as I know some products take time to see results. I cannot stop using it and could definitely not live without this little gel in my life, it is utterly brilliant!
So much so that even my mum has started to use it and wants me to get her some for her birthday.
I was worried about getting this gel at first as from reading reviews quite a lot of people had skin irritations as a result from the ingredient of snail secretion filtrate in the gel. I took the gamble and hoped that I wouldn’t be met with the same fate, I assumed that my skin would win in a Hunger Games styled battle against this product when it came to inflammation and irritation and luckily for me, I was right! I came out victorious with a better complexion.
The great thing about snail secretion filtrate is that it is jam packed with wonderful ingredients like elastin, hyaluronic acid and collagen among other things which helps to treats scars, wrinkles and acne due to the goodness in these little ingredients. It also helps moisturise, protect and regenerate the skin. No snails are harmed in the extraction of the secretion, it is done in the most humane way possible.
Some people find the idea of putting snail slime on their face disgusting but with all the benefits it has, I don’t understand why more people haven’t jumped on the band wagon already. I know many people don’t like the idea of creepy crawlies but it isn’t like you’re actually putting a snail on your face. I strangely find snails cute. My mum absolutely hates them so I am shocked she even dared to use this product.
I remember there was a snail climbing up on the outside of the window late one night and when she saw it there, she screamed and ran into the other room. I thought Slender Man was outside! That would be the only way to justify her reaction to one small snail.
This product is revolutionary (if it doesn’t cause you any skin irritation) and has become part of my everyday routine especially at night.
The gels consistency is thick but applies easily and spreads evenly on the skin, basically like any other gel. Only way I can explain it really.
This gel has not only helped make my skin look better but has also improved my breakout issues, I haven’t had any real concerning breakouts since I started using this gel and instead of using my spot cream I now use this.
I personally love this product and would buy another one tomorrow without a moment hesitation, it is cheap and does wonders for the skin. It is a 45ml miracle worker!
I give Mizon Snail Recovery Gel Cream 6 out of 5!
I know, I know! Six doesn’t come into the range of 1-5 but I love this product so much that I cannot help but give it plus marks on all fronts!

That’s all from me for today. Thank you for reading,
Would any of you be willing to put snails on your face? I remember seeing an article a while ago about letting snails crawl all over you face as part of a facial. I wonder what fancy term they came up with to call that, obviously not – Snail Slime or Dude, where’s my Snail Secretion? So many missed opportunities!
Feel free to message me or email me with your suggestions to what products or make up I should try and review next. Don’t worry, they don’t just have to be Korean! Although at the moment I am loving all things Korean.
I hope you have a lovely day or had a lovely day depending when you’re reading this. Eat a cupcake for me! Meg x
