    Comments about COSRX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence:

    I have acne-prone, combination oily/normal, sensitive skin. This stuff is AMAZING. I've noticed that after 1 week of using this essence, my scars faded faster than with any product I've tried. Witth that said, I noticed this product worked more effectively on newer scars. I use this after toning with the AHA/BHA toner from COSRX or my NEOGEN Bio-Peel Gauze pads. At first the product feels a bit slimey when applied, but that feeling disappears and it dries down pretty quickly after a few minutes. There is not much of a scent from this. This product has not broken me out after a month of using it.

      Comments about COSRX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence:

      I haven't ordered this product from Ulta, but I purchased it from elsewhere, but I highly recommend this essence.

      Please note, because this essence not formulated like a moisturizer, unless it's very humid or hot or you have normally hydrated skin, this will NOT be a replacement for your moisturizer. Essences are just additional hydrating steps BEFORE your moisturizer. Also, for sensitive skin types who react badly to AHA/Alpha Hydroxy Acids (i.e. lactic acid, glycolic acid, etc.), there's a potential chance for irritation as snail mucin has a very low dose of naturally occurring AHA. Allergies to shellfish/mollusks and dust mites may also not have the best reaction to snail mucin either.

      Anyway, this stuff keeps my skin soft and is a protective step for the winter air for me currently. It also soothes my angry acne when I pick. It's also safe to put under the eye (test this before trying, of course), so I use it as an extra layer of moisture before my eye cream. I use four pumps which is one more pump than you really need, but I like a thick layer of this stuff. My skin just drinks it up. I spray Mario Badescu's Rosewater mist on my skin first, so it soaks in even faster.

        Comments about COSRX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence:

        I use this product right after toner (which btw I use the cosrx pimple pad, ulta please bring that one in as well!). I've definitely noticed my acne scars fade after using this for about a month, and if you're impatient about results, it also leaves your skin feeling very soft immediately. But it's also definitely lightweight and does not clog pores. Once I started using this essence in combination with the cosrx pimple pads, my regular breakouts have pretty much stopped altogether since it helped me keep my skin moisturized without clogging my skin. It might be scary or gross to think about using snail mucin on your skin, but it's definitely sanitary, and I highly recommend anyone with dull, unevenly colored, combination/dry skin to take a chance at this!

            CosRX is my holy grail skincare brand, and I'm thrilled that Ulta has picked them up!! I use this product twice daily after cleansing and toning, before moisturizing. It is a multi-tasking serum and leaves your skin noticeably softer after just one day.

            After all the hype of snails i wanted to check it out but I'm not really impressed with this. I really don't see a difference after using this for a week. Maybe I'll try another snail product but as for this. Nope. Do not recomend.

            Comments about COSRX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence:

            I have requested that Ulta begin to carry Cosrx. It is clearly one of the best K beauty lines, budget friendly and highly effective. All three products that Ulta began to carry are phenomenal. Only proven ingredients, seldom fragrance, low or no alcohol. Snail, at 96%, seriously, it does not get any better than this, even at the ultra high end. Snail breathes and does not clog skin. Highly effective for dehydrated skin. I CANNOT THANK ULTA ENOUGH FOR COSRX PRODUCTS! Very excited to have an Ulta option. This product is a light liquigel essence step, suitable for all skin types. If you have not tried snail yet, this is a superb place to start. Ulta forever! Ulta listens!

                Comments about COSRX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence:

                I use this after toning and before a serum and moisturizer. The idea is the essence makes the following products more effective. This is the only essence I have used, and I have been very happy with it. It is very lightweight and not greasy at all and the bottle has lasted me months with twice daily use, so it's a good value to boot. There is no odor really, it's just a refreshing, light, somewhat hydrating gel.
