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!
Reviewed by 101 customers WOW never experienced such hydration 😍
Rk80 from Dallas
I literally never experienced such hydration. After 3 nightly uses my super dry and itchy patches are gone and my skin is softer than a baby skin.
I only think if the package was a pump it would be better than a jar cause the product is too slimy
game changer holy grail
MBeth from oh
I have very oily, acne prone and mildly dehydrated skin. I use a very light water based moisturizer first and then this on top. I take it up under the eyes too. this changed my skin. Acne marks heal so much faster, my milla are gone, my skin is so smooth and radiant. Like my skin actually has a sheen but is dry to the touch. My skin hates basically everything but not this! I will not be without it now.
Bought it on a whim ... Highly RECO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
ADE from cook county
I bought this on a whim because of the price point and the reviews. I am closing in on THE BIG 5-0, and this product has made my skin baby soft! I have been using it for a few days, and I'm so happy with the results. I can't speak to fine lines or sun-spots -- yet!
Kimi from new Mexico
its slimy but very nice haha! i have dry to combination skin. extremely moisturizing, amazing for price and I was pleasantly surprised by the large size of the jar. I've used just a couple times and can see immediate results. my skin is so smooth and soft, fine lines diminished. doesn't look greasy just melts into the skin.
Great for 'glow'
J from NY
I have dry skin but frequently moisturizer makes me look greasy. This stuff sinks in beautifully and gives my skin a non-greasy glow. You just have to let it sink in for like 10 minutes. Apply it immediately after getting out of shower.
RachelJ09 from Southaven, MS
This moisturizer is a staple in my nighttime routine. I have oily combo skin that is extremely sensitive and this is one of those products that I have complete confidence when applying it to my skin. Not only has it aided in repairing my moisture barrier, but it has also helped reduce my hyperpigmentation and overall texture of my skin. Don't let the word "cream" mislead you. This is more of a gel texture that absorbs into the skin sooooo nicely. It's just enough moisture without being too occlusive for my oily combo skin. Seriously, give it a try! The snail mucin essence and this combined are a dream team!
mccxoxo from Madison WI
I use this on myself and by boyfriend. Even he's noticed the difference in his skin - best bang for your buck in my opinion!
Dry skin no more
Carol from Upland, CA
Apply a generous amount on my face twice a day and within a week my dry stops were gone.
If I could change one thing it would be the packaging.... Why not place inside a pump like device instead of dipping your fingers inside the container. I use a little spatula but still it could be a little more user friendly.
anyone can review, educated or ignorant
industrialover from Houston
Don't let uneducated people discourage you from trying this product. One reviewer claimed cruelty. Snails secrete toxins when irritated or on the defense so treating them badly would be counterproductive, the product would be unsellable. And salt? Do you know what happens to a snail or slug when salt is put on them? I don't know about other brands, but I've researched this one and the other reviewer needs to educate herself before spreading lies. I've really enjoyed this product so far. Sorry for ranting, but I can't stand it when people ignorantly spread misinformation. don't believe her, don't believe me, do your own research
Oily/acne-prone/dehydrated skin type
Nicole from South Gate
I love this! I highly recommend it to everyone. My skin soaks this up. It helped with my dark spots and acne. I saw changes within two weeks of using this product. I even used it to treat some sunburns and by the next day I was healed up. However it does make my skin a little dry but one can easily treat that with a good moisturizer.
Not hydrating enough
Livvy from Flagstaff
I have dehydrated, dry skin and I felt like this moisturizer did nothing for me. When I first applied it, it felt super hydrating. But once it fully absorbed, my skin felt dry again. I would say if you have oily skin or combination skin, this would probably be hydrating enough, but in my experience, it's too light for dry skin. I'm bummed it didn't work because besides it not being super hydrating, it was a good quality moisturizer.
Good for my adult acne type skin
dz from St louis
I use this morning and/or night after cleansing, and under spf during the day. Makes my dry, blackhead prone adult acne skin feel baby's-butt smooth and soft. No heavy fragrance and this seems strong but gentle enough to even pat right under my eyes without irritation.
The snail stuff
Cat from Tulsa
I'm back to order another jar! I've been using this as a moisturizer a couple times a week for about a year now. I LOVE IT. It's fun and slimy to apply and absorbs beautifully. It leaves my skin glowing and usually my face is super super oily and I can visibly tell the difference on my forehead at the end of the day when I use this in the morning.
I've recommended this every time the topic of moisturizers gets brought up and will be purchasing more as gifts.
AMAZING for teenagers
Julie from South East Michigan
My 18 year old has had bad acne for several years. The dermatologist just wanted to put they in birth control. We weren't really ready to go there just yet. There are thousands of products out there. We just had to find the right one. Our hair stylist is amazing and she recommended this line. We got the face wash, toner and snail cream. She has been using it for 5 days and I am amazed! Her skin is clearing up! Her skin was very dry. She wakes up every morning with dry skin coming off of her face. She's headed to college in a few weeks and she'll be going feeling not confident.
The best snail cream!
Kaela from Ohio
Light but thick texture. Smooths, moisturizes and plumps skin. Great product for a great price!
A good and interesting formula
Nikki from ND
This is by far the strangest moisturizer I've used. It genuinely has the texture of what I would imagine snail slime to be like; slimy, but it doesn't slide off of your skin, it becomes quite tacky once it's absorbed into the skin.
At first I didn't know if I liked it, but my skin has become beautiful and even since I started using this, and my makeup glides right over it.
I have combo skin, but I feel like this has really balanced out my complexion, so I don't get as oily during the day.
I also have sensitive skin, and have zero irritation with this.
I'm a forever customer.
Great daytime moisturizer
Shel from IN
I use this product as a morning moisturizer. It absorbs quickly without being too heavy. I have had no issues with it causing any breakouts or other issues.
Loving it so far
Angie from Michigan
I have been using this for maybe a month now and I love it! My skin has been very oily recently and this has helped so much to control that. It is not very moisturizing though so I need to figure out another product to use with it. But I do love how my skin looks when I use this!
I will always repurchase this product.
Very oily skin girl from Florida
I use this product about 3-4 times a week as my night time moisturizer. My face looks plump and glowing in the morning. I have a hard time with moisturizers because of my oily skin, they can make me break out after 1 or 2 uses. i have a great day time moisturizer but need something for a night time. I really notice a difference in the morning when i wake after using this product, my face actually looks plump and as a healthy glow to it. I am only going to recommend this product on the basis of oily skin, since that is my skin type and I have seen the results of using this product.
NYC_cat from NYC
I have mixed feelings about this product. I love that it clears up the skin and controls the oil really well. I can't put my finger on it, but it does make my skin look better after extended use. However, I do not find it moisturizing at all, it's sticky, and does not play well with makeup. I use it mostly at night. I am on the fence about repurchasing.
High quality effectiveness
Gray eyed Redhead from MN
This is such a help with healing skin issues. I use a K beauty layering approach. I use this as a treatment and it is light enough to use all year. Thicker than an essence yet plumps my skin nicely. Dry, sensitive and/or acne prone friends should give it a try imo.
Love it 😍
Alex from Sunrise, FL
Love this cream. Makes my skin so soft and moisturized. I have combo skin and this product is just right. Not too moisturizing but perfect! Gives you a beautiful natural glow. I use this with the essence as well.
Absolutely AMAZING for dry skin
Piper from USA
I love these snail mucin products! I didn't realize just how beneficial to the skin it could be. I use the essence and the moisturizer and I am obsessed. i am never switching around again! holy grail!
gigi from PR
looking for something hydrating for my acne prone skin has been a challenge. i came across this product and it's like heaven. it really works well in my inflamed skin. my favorite part is that it doesn't feel heavy and it absorbs it very well leaving the face hydrated and moisturized. it's good for skin with compromised barriers. plus, it's fragrance free! i would buy it again
Restores damaged skin
Damaged moisture barrier from GA
Restored my skins moisture barrier!
So I messed up my moisture barrier by using CeraVe SA body wash on my face, once after working out and once before bed, + sun exposure + AHA's at night; it felt and looked like chicken skin...all over my face.
Itched like crazy, started peeling. Nothing felt right on my face, not even coconut oil, except for this moisturizer.
This is strong enough to restore a damaged moisture barrier, I'm now hesitant to be without it and will be repurchasing!
