    Take the leap of faith. Once you get over the idea of the main ingredient.... you will love this stuff!! I was a bit nervous giving this a go the first time around wondering what the texture would be like. It has the same consistency of fresh aloe vera. I use two pumps on my face and eye area and two pumps on my neck and chest. For the short time i have been using this product it has now become part of the must have's list of products i use. I put it on after serum and before moisturizer.

      Comments about COSRX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence:

      I have recently gotten into Korean skincare, and while I had found a good moisturizer and face oil, my skin still felt like it needed something else to help it. 'Snail goo' in general was recommended, and this product in particular. I have been using it for a few days and it does seem to help with redness, and so far I've had no days where my skin dries out and feels like crepe paper. That may not seem like much, but my skin is VERY temperamental, so it's a definite improvement. Love to see what this product does over a longer period of time!

      One comment- if your skin seems a bit irritated with putting it on, but on a thin layer of moisturizer first and then pat this into the skin over it. Works a charm!

      You want me to put what on my face.

      Comments about COSRX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence:

      I adopted a Korean facial routine and started implemented Korean products slowly. This was a highly recommended product so I purchased this first. I was so unsure about using this that I held on to it for about 2 weeks before using it. But once I did my skin glowed. I use it every AM and PM after cleansing and toner. After 1wk skin was so soft. Week 2-3 My skin glows and the tone looks even. I love the glow and softness. My skin look great no makeup.

        I received a snail cream of a different brand, in an ipsy bag. Initially I was skeptical to try. But after doing a little research, I was excited to try. The corsx formula is not as creamy as the sample I tried. But it has less ingredients, and works just as good. One pump covers my face and neck, so the bottle will last a long time. It is definitely worth the 20 something dollars! Because of stress my face has been breaking out. And for the first time in my life, I have experienced stress psoriasis. This snail mucin has totally help my skin! It will be a permanent staple in my skin routine!!

          Comments about COSRX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence:

          I've heard great things about snail mucin products, and specifically COSRX in general, so I was excited to try out this product. I've been using this for about a week now, and while I haven't noticed any major changes in my skin yet, I'm pleased with what I have seen so far. I have reactive skin that reddens easily (just washing my face or putting on moisturizer will make me red for about 20 mins). This seems to actually calm the redness, and definitely doesn't cause any additional irritation. It's super light, absorbs quickly, and feels great on the skin--not greasy or tacky. It also seems to be fading a dark spot on my chin that I gave myself messing with a pesky blackhead. I typically apply this after a witch hazel or rose water toner, and that seems to be enough moisture for me. Those with dry skin would probably want a moisturizer on top.

          I was unsure of what snail mucin might smell like, but I'm happy to report this product has really no scent at all. I also appreciate the limited amount of ingredients in this. Less things to cause irritation! I held off on giving 5 stars because I don't think I've been using this long enough to see full results, but everything is excellent so far!

            Comments about COSRX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence:

            I haven't purchased this from Ulta yet, but I will in the future. Cosrx is definitely one of my fave skincare brands. I use this every day as a moisturizer underneath my makeup primer. I know it has a viscous texture, but once you smooth it over your skin and pat it in, it absorbs nicely. I usually let this sink in while I do my eye makeup. If you use the proper amount (between 1 and two pumps), it will absorb fully without a sticky texture left behind. This is great for oily skin, as it is hydrating without being greasy. This doesn't clog my pores or irritate acne. This product has no smell at all. Great to use after toning with the Cosrx AHA/BHA Clarifying Treatment Toner. Love this product!

              I love CosRX products, but this has to be my favorite. This works amazing on sensitive skin and is very soothing. This works well on inflamed acne too. I really like this after either the CosRX BHA or AHA and I wake up to very soft and healthy skin. By using the CosRX actives and the snail mucin, my acne has greatly reduced and my scars are fading faster. After cleansing, this is my first step in skincare because it's really lightweight and absorbs fast. I use roughly 2-3 pumps and focus it on trouble areas and under my eyes. Then I follow up with another essence or serum and then my moisturizer. On days that I don't want to do my entire skincare, I just use this and my moisturizer. I use this daily and have't experienced any reaction. This product is a staple for me. I do recommend patch testing before adding any skincare.

                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.

                  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.
