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.
I am 52 and have never been able to use any kind of anti-aging products, I'm getting a little desperate cause my skin is still oily and acne prone plus sensitive. This is light but sticky for 20-30 minutes, it plumps up your skin, it's nice, but it is breaking out my forehead. I'm keeping it to use around my eyes and my neck to see if it does any long term anti aging.

I wanted to give this a shot after seeing how much people seem to love it, but it irritated my skin like none other. Put it on at night and woke up to puffy, red, sensitive skin. When I saw this I went and washed my face with my normal cleanser to get rid of any remnants of it and instantly my face looked and felt better. This was so peculiar to me as my skin is not sensitive and I typically do not have reactions to new skin care. I wish it would've worked!

This product destroyed my skin. I had an allergic reaction causing my eyelids to swell and burn and itch. Caused a rash all over my face and neck. Would not recommend if you have sensitive skin.

The Cosrx Snail Mucin Power Essence has become my skincare holy grail! This essence has completely transformed my skin, leaving it hydrated, plump, and radiant. I was initially skeptical about using snail mucin in my skincare routine, but I'm so glad I gave it a try. This essence is incredibly lightweight and absorbs quickly into the skin, providing deep hydration without any greasiness. I've noticed a significant improvement in the overall texture and elasticity of my skin since incorporating this product. It's helped fade acne scars and hyperpigmentation, giving me a more even complexion. Plus, it's gentle enough for my sensitive skin and hasn't caused any irritation. I can't recommend the Cosrx Snail Mucin Power Essence enough – it's truly a game-changer!

it not only helped repair my skin barrier but fades acne scars/hyperpigmentation!! the consistency can be off putting to some but definitely worth it.

I saw this being used in a youtube video about 3-4 years ago and i gave it a try and have never turned back! Its great for my dry skin, really evens out my texture. I always use this after my moisture
sealant and then the rest of my steps. I have very dry skin and keep in mind, this is to help with anti-aging long term and is NOT a moisturizer. Just one pump is needed and lasts about 6-8 months!

I have had this products for over a months and have used it consistently while following steps on how to apply this "correctly" and I havent noticed that it does anything. My skin is the same its always been. Its not really terrible but its not really worth the momey if it does nothing.

This product does help to hydrate my skin but as a teen who has sensitive ance prone skin this broke me out in places it regularly doesnt. All over i started getting red spots but i kept trying it for a few more weeks and it still didnt work, if you have any type of sensitive skin i dont recommend getting this.

Cleared my skin within weeks! If you are new to K-Beauty (like me) start with this simple and easy, use it before serums. Your skin will love you! ྀིྀི

Heather from San Diego
I was looking for something to help with moisture retention and decided to get this. It absorbs quickly and feels very light. Its perfect for under moisturizer and makeup. I love this product and it has helped with keeping my skin clear and moisturized. I still get oily in my t zone area over time but i blot with my oil blotting papers and my skin looks great.

This left me with irritated face..I wanted to love so bad but it was just not working for me.
Casey from Chicago
I don't think this is a bad product but it's not for me. Apparently the protein in snail mucin is very similar to the proteins found in dust mites and shellfish. Therefore, if you're allergic to one it's likely you're allergic to the other. I have a pretty significant dustmite allergy and didn't know about this connection and had a bad reaction.
JadeNoelle from Washington
This product caused red spots all over my face. Didn't want to give up on it so I tried it again a couple weeks later. Same thing. At least I got it half off so I wasn't out too much money. Bummer.
Shell from Michigan
I used the whole bottle of this and I couldnt figure out why I was breaking out so bad. I chalked it up to being pregnant. After I ran out, I decided not to replace it and see how my skin would do. To my surprise, my skin started clearing up! Coincidence? Not sure but I wouldn't recommend if you have acne prone skin.
Antonia from GA
I love this product it is very nourishing. the only thing is I have not seen a difference in my acne. i dont think it helps acne go away or prevents. But i still will repurchase!

My skin is very sensitive and I have a history of eczema and redness/scaliness/swelling in response to some products, weather, and even my own sweat. It tends to be dry. I'm in my early 30s so blemishes happen but are not common for me. No matter what state my skin is in, I can apply this without it burning when other products fail. It protects my skin effectively, works great for dermaplaning, and I use it every day under a moisturizer. I have gone through a big bottle of it and just got another.
