I’m back on track with my Korean beauty products since the beginning of this year – I’m all over the snail creams this time and testing out a few different ones. I also have some that came in a Beauteque Bag that I haven’t even tried yet.
The technical name for snail slime is “Helix Aspersa Müller Glycoconjugates.” SEXY?! Not. Apparently snail slime is a complex mixture of a lot of different chemicals that are great for our skin, including glycoprotein enzymes, hyaluronic acid, copper peptides, antimicrobial peptides and trace elements including copper, zinc, and iron. Surely this has got to be good right?
I’m also trying out the Korean wash routine – the 10 step bonanza – so I don’t have the time or the patience to do all of it every day, but I do try. I’ll put those products into a seperate post – for now here are the ones I’m using at the moment. I really love to Missha night cream and the Sulwhasoo SPF50 day cream (but I’ve been loving the day cream a bit too much and am running out at the mo!) as they both really feel like they make a big difference.
Currently I’m trying out:
- Hyaluronic Acid lotion by Hada Labo (ok, this one’s actually Japanese)
- Pore Toner by Scinic (this came in my monthly Beauteque Bag subscription)
