Coxir Black Snail Collagen Cream Review
Snail slime aka snail mucin has gained a lot of momentum in the skincare industry. I am always fascinated by Korean skincare products due to the use of simple, plant powdered and effective formulations. When frmadcos reached out to me for trying out the Coxir Black Snail Collagen Cream I was thrilled to try it. Today’s post is going to be about Coxir Black Snail Collagen Cream Review.
The use of snail slime dates back to ancient Greece. Snail mucin is purported to deeply moisturize, firm and lift the skin along with fading blemishes and skin regeneration. It plays a vital role in wound healing and is helpful to treat rosacea, scars, acne and signs of ageing.
Snail mucin contains three key components-Hyaluronic acid, Glycolic acid and Allantoin. Hyaluronic acid provides intense moisturisation and hydration to the skin. Glycolic acid on the other hand exerts anti-inflammatory, keratolytic and antioxidants effects, and acts as both an exfoliator and moisturizer. Lastly, Allantoin is a keratolytic, meaning it has the ability to smoothen the skin through exfoliation of the top layer of dead skin cells. It aids wound healing and promotes cell proliferation and longevity.
With all these benefits listed above let’s dive into the review of the Coxir Black Snail Collagen Cream.
Packaging, Texture & Fragrance of Coxir Black Snail Collagen Cream
This cream by the Korean Skincare brand Coxir, contains snail mucin, collagen and black beans. I love the minimalistic packaging of Korean products. This cream is housed inside a black and white coloured tub. It comes with a tiny spatula also. Just a small amount is needed to cover your entire face and neck. Therefore it will last you for a good amount of time.
The snail cream has a gooey slimy texture due to the presence of snail mucin.Although it’s slightly sticky but after few seconds it gets completely absorbed into the skin without leaving behind any sticky feeling. Upon application, it forms a thin protective film onto the skin.
I’ve heard a few people saying that it has an overpowering fragrance although having a sensitive nose, I didn’t feel anything as such. It has an extremely mild fragrance and I feel the brand has worked upon this factor.
The black snail collagen cream containing snail, collagen and black beans protects the skin from dryness by maintaining moisture levels. It provides an unrealistic suppleness and elasticity to the skin like nothing before.It’s best to apply this cream at night because skin regeneration takes place at night. This snail cream aims at protecting skin from dryness by maintaining moisture levels and provides luminance to the skin.
I and my mom have been using it and it works like a charm for both of us. My mom’s skin is extremely dry throughout the year and this snail cream turned out to be a complete game-changer for her skin. Due to skin dryness, the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles increases to a great extent. But it provides a burst of moisturisation to her dry skin. Also due to the skin being thoroughly moisturised and hydrated it even helps in smoothing out the appearance of her fine lines especially nasolabial folds. However, it’s too early to say that it has completely faded her fine lines and wrinkles with just one month of using it.
I felt this cream is a true gem in itself. Because it provides a new lease of life to dull and lifeless skin. After applying it at night, the next morning I wake up to baby soft, smooth and supple skin. It provides a natural and healthy glow to the skin which is quite unreal if you do not use makeup. I’ve been stepping out of my house without makeup and my relatives ask me what products I am using due to the healthy glow on my skin. This snail cream improves the overall health of the skin. It helps in aiding the quick healing of acne scars.
I am currently not facing any bouts of acne thankfully, but it’s a saviour for acne-prone and irritated skin. Also if you’re into chemical exfoliation that tends to leave the skin dry this snail cream should definitely be a must-buy for you all. It soothes, nourishes, replenishes, moisturises and regenerates the skin all at once. Overall I love this snail collagen cream and would highly recommend you all to try it out.
