Korean Beauty - Snail Cream and why I can't stop lathering myself in it

I posted about this cream awhile back, but am just now comprehending how amazing this stuff is. I was going through a rough couple of months with my skin. I had crazy hormonal breakouts, a facial that really irritated my skin, and just overall redness, peeling, and ugliness in general. I remembered this was suppose to be super healing and great for acne. I put it on before bed one night and I kid you not - ALL of my zits were gone and this dry, red patch I'd had for months was 100x better. I have not skipped one day of using this in 2 months and my skin is 100% clear and pretty dang perfect right now. Overall my skin feels calm and happy when I use this. This is seriously a miracle worker! And incase you've been living under a rock - here's the 411 on snail cream:

Snail cream is made from the secretion snails leave behind when they move, scooped up and purified into a powder. The slime is packed with nutrients like hyaluronic acid, glycoprotein, enzymes, antimicrobial peptides, and proteoglycans (fillers that plump). In case you're concerned, all of the slime is harvested in a snail-friendly laboratory environment. Here's some more snail cream benefits: fades scars, heals acne, heals burns, smooths skin, plumps skin, revitalizes skin, boosts collagen and elastic, fades dark spots.

What you might not know is that the snail slime and other Korean skincare ingredients are supported my some serious R&D. Skincare in Korea is an integral part of their culture - your complexion is a treasured possession and regimens focus on prevention and skin fortification. As a result, Korea has produced some of the most cutting edge R&D labs in the world, supported by government funding.

The brand I use (Mizon) is the #1 selling snail cream in Korea. It has one of the highest concentrations of snail extracts. The texture is almost gel like, has a nice fresh scent, and I promise it won't gross you out! I use it like a serum under my moisturizer. If you have oily skin you may not need a moisturizer over it, but if you are dry I would recommend the extra moisture. The spray is really amazing too. I use it before (on a clean face) I put the snail repair cream on and after or throughout the day as well. Click photos for link to product!
