Most Helpful Positive Review An incredible product!
This product is fantastic. Lightweight but moisturizes well, has minimal to no smell, and extended use has made my skin more firm and bouncy. Works great as an AM moisturizer and PM moisturizer, and can be layered with an occlusive on top for even more hydration. Did not irritate my very acne-prone skin, and absorbs quickly enough to be used under makeup and sunscreen.
Most Helpful Critical Review Not so great.
I absolutely adore CosRx, and I'm stoked that Ulta carries a wide variety of their line so I can try more of their products. Unfortunately, even with really strong, great brands, not everything works for every skin type. I'd wanted to try this as a new moisturizer, as what I'd been using made my skin a bit too oily, and I'd tried a snail based face mask a while back that made my skin super soft. I'd assumed that this cream would do the same. For starters, it seems REALLY goopy right out of the jar - but it's not sticky, and it felt like even if I put on too much, it quickly absorbed into my skin without leaving a film or a cast behind. Great, right? Except I noticed that during the day...my nose, my cheeks - they felt SUPER dry. Like I'd washed my face with steaming hot water dry. And whenever I put my sunscreen over it, it felt like it made the dryness worse. Over a few days of using this product, I noticed that I was breaking out in the same areas where I was feeling that excessive dryness - cheeks, chin, nose. So it looks like I'm going to be returning this!

Rey from F
I have combo dry sensitive skin, prone to breakouts. The past few months dealing with covid it's been impossible for me to calm my flare ups. After I started using this as my moisturizer about a month ago I feel it's improved the texture of my skin so much. I was trying cosrx bha and aha treatments previously which were just making my face worse... The hylauronic acid in this product, I realized is just what I needed for moisture and that soothed my acne as opposed to exfoliation.
my skin drinks this stuff right up and has cleared up so much in the last several weeks. I dont have acne as a common problem, just with environmental stressors my skins been impacted a lot and physically from the mask. Anyways I give this product a 10/10, it's more like a gel cream than a typical cream moisturizer hence why everyone says it's sticky. I love consistencies like that so it didn't bother me, just goes well with my skin. And you don't need to use a lot at all. This jar will probably last me 3-4 months (:

In love with this product. At first I wasn't too sure but after a week of use I'm hooked. I use it as my morning cream, it's moisturizing without being greasy or heavy. Getting the right amount is trial and error but overall great product!
Great day and night moisturizer
Duley from Orlando, Florida
I recently started started using a retinol and this product has kept my face moisturized. And the ingredients are amazing. I really love this product.
Didn't work for me
Britney from LA
I got dry red patches on my face after using this cream. Not very moisturising yet very wet when first applied. It takes a while to absorb into the face but isn't very moisturising.
Amber from Portland, Oregon
Dried my skin out. Dissapointed. If you have oily skin, I'd give it a try though.
nina from eatontown, nj
i don't usually write reviews and i have a hard time finding something that won't cause my skin to break out. i have very dry and acne prone skin. this stuff is amazing and really works for me
em from California
It felt really nice initially,but it dried really fast and it felt like there was a greasy film on my face. I'll be sticking to the propolis moisturizer they also carry
I don't get it?
Alyssa from Washington
This moisturizer left a weird film on my face after I applied it, and my skin almost felt dryer every time I used this? I didn't like it at all this literally did nothing for me I returned it
moisturizing w/o clogging pores
rose from boston, MA
i use this as a nighttime moisturizer. thick enough w/o it clogging pores. it is pretty sticky though until it dries down. it's kind of a watery consistency more than a cream. you get A LOT of product in the jar, def can last you at least half a year.
Bye bye dryness
Soha from Illinois
Got this during the 21 days of beauty sale for 50% off. Was a great purchase for the sales price. Has a nice amount of product inside unlike many skincare products which are 90% packaging. Loved using this before moisturizer since it's humectant and not a moisturizer. Would recommend using with a product spatula since it's slimey in consistency which i actually quite enjoy. Works great with all the different moisturizers I tried it with. My dryness/scaliness I get from using acne medicine and retinoid was gone with just a week's use of this. One less star because of the original price.
I don't understand all the good reviews?
Meg from Tampa FL
I bought this based off all the good reviews and had very high hopes but was totally let down. First of all I don't even have dry skin, if anything it can be slightly on the oily side, but this product is so not moisturising that I started getting small dry patches in my t-zone where my makeup would stick and look flakey. So I started putting on a thicker layer of the product thinking maybe I wasn't using enough but that didn't help either because then the layer of the product starts to flake too and I have little white flakes coming off of my face all day even without makeup. The only good thing about this product is that it didn't make me breakout at all.
Best cream out there
Yessy from Omaha, NE
I put this cream on in the morning and at night. I typically have oily skin and this product does not leave your face oily nor dry! It helps with my hormonal acne too.
I quite like it!
Nina from MD
I was surprised by how much I liked it. I have drier skin and I typically only like rich, dense creams. And this product is very slimy, a little runny, almost gel-like. But it spreads easily and moisturized my skin really well! Works just fine under makeup. I haven't had any groundbreaking results or changes to my skin after using it for several months, but my skin feels smooth and hasn't broken out with this, which is all I'm asking for. I'll probably switch to something heavier for the winter but it's a good choice and you get a ton of product in the jar.
❤️ from MI
I never write reviews, but I love this product! As someone who's tried a lot of moisturizers, this one is by far the best for morning application. It doesn't disturb my sunscreen or makeup whatsoever and leaves my face feeling plump. I lovveeee the texture and experience this moisturizer offers, it's so cool! I have dry, acne prone skin, but I think this would be great for oily skin too. If you're someone who's looking for a great moisturizer and fun product, I totally recommend this.
Dee from Chicago
Incredible for acne prone skin. I truly believe this has helped with the inflammation of my hormonal acne. If you're super dry like myself in the colder months, I would recommend looking into a thicker cream than this. It is lightweight yet very hydrating especially for oily/combo skin types. i top this off with vaseline at night.
Dewy and hydrated
macv_100 from Aurora, IL
This is a little hidden treasure. The texture is a bit slimey and hard to just get enough for your face but once you apply it to your face, you realize that a little does go a very long way. After application, I noticed during the day that my skin looked dewy, and my skin felt hydrated (not oily) I have oily/combo skin and it is light weight, does not feel heavy on the skin nor does it make my skin oily.
beachmom19 from dmv
I've never tried snail byproducts but I am a huge fan after testing this out!!! I have sensitive skin and this didn't make my skin react at all. Will continue buying this! Definitely keeps my combo skin hydrated...will have to discontinue using my other hydrators as this beats them for sure!
Havent noticed anything yet
Brit from Wisconsin
I am 31, with oily, textured skin. Bought this because of the hype. First, the jar is huge, bigger than what i was expecting! Have used it over a week, just at night and have not seen any changes. It does dry into my oily skin very well. Will continue to use and see. Have not had any breakouts. The texture of this is slimy and thin and stringy, but like i said, dries nicely once i rub it in.
Smoother skin on face and arms
Jaynjay from KS
I like the feel of this on my face. I use it every morning before applying my foundation. I also have been using it on the bumps on the back of my upper arms and have noticed smoother skin there as well.
I loved the product but I hate the jar packaging.
Skincare is my jam! from NC
Sadly, I won't repurchase this product because of the jar packaging. It is a very good moisturizer but because of the fluidity it is very messy to use. Change the packaging to a pump or tube and I'll repurchae.
Amy from Chicago from Chicago, Illinois
I've been curious about this for a while so Ulta ran a sale on it, I jumped at the chance. I love this stuff! These snails are humanely treated which is important to me. The texture is gooey but not sticky. It's how do you think snail mucin would feel but definitely not sticky, slimy, or gross. It sinks in pretty quickly. I use it after my night serum but before my night moisturizer. I don't know the difference it would make if I used it in place of a night moisturizer. However, this definitely seems to boost the effects of my current products. My face is clear, hydrated, and looks so healthy. I have gotten several comments lately about how great my skin looks. My skin can be temperamental and break out with new products but it did not do that at all with this. I highly recommend giving it a try. Stick with it for two weeks and see if you notice a difference as well. At the very least, what a great conversation starter!
Fancyancy from California
Love this product!
Decent buy for oilier skin, but...
J from Kansas
I got this product because I like other cosrx products, and am trying to revamp my skincare routine. I have combo skin with acne scars, congested pores around the nose and chin, and some rough texture. I'm not 30 yet and want to heal my teen errors. This product, combined with my ole henriksen pha cleanser and ordinary niacinamide and zinc have worked together well to help decongest my pores and smooth out some texture on my cheeks and forehead, all after about 3 weeks. That said, with the season changing and the Midwest winds drying things out this moisturizer isn't enough to stop flaking on my skin. I have to add more through the day to soothe my face. I will likely keep using, because once I got used to the slick texture I really like this product, but just layer a thicker cream at night during the winter.
Very, very lightweight
Emily from Long Beach, CA
Had the product about a week. The texture is better than I was expecting because it looks more slimy than it feels. I like a lightweight, gel consistency, but some days this feels a little too light for even my oily skin. Overall I do enjoy it and it's really nice while the weather is still really hot in california.
best Ulta purchase
Reese from New York, NY
This thing is amazing. I never thought I'd love anything to do with snails but I'm sold. It helped my sensitized skin when I was dealing with over exfoliation. I use this everyday and I see a difference in my skin hydration wise. Great product and will definitely repurchase
