I know it sounds gross but it’s done wonders for my skin. This past year I looked into the potential benefits of snail cream in treating acne scars, reducing inflammation and boosting overall appearance. The use of snail secretion is common in Korean beauty products. I kept an open mind and placed an order through Peace & Lily for their best-selling snail scream. If I was going all-in with snail cream I wanted to ensure it was one of the best on the market with ample reviews.
I started using snail cream every evening in mid-October as my moisturizer (although you could use this in the morning too). After a month I noticed my cystic acne scars were starting to level-out. They didn’t appear as deep and as dark. Moreover, the occurrence of my cystic acne flareups went down. Given how much dairy I consumed in November and December (holiday food galore), I should have had at least 2-3 flare-ups and I had ZERO. I’m counting my lucky stars!
My evening skincare routine involves:
Aside from keeping my acne flare-ups and scars in-check, my skin started to appear more plump and glowy considering the changing season and the dryness it brings. I haven’t even hooked up my humidifier (yet) which I do every fall and winter to help my skin.
This is definitely a favorite of mine and I love that it’s reasonably priced compared to a $200 snail facial. Now that Korean beauty products are easier to find online and in-store it’s easy to keep my beauty inventory steady and try new products. For instance, Target unveiled their Korean beauty products section this fall and I noticed it carries a similar all-in-one snail cream as Peace & Lily’s version (the formulas are a bit different).
Have you tried snail cream? If so, what was your experience?
