K-beauty brand COSRX is known for its Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence. The unique formula is even beloved by celebs like model and actress Emily Ratajkowski. During the pandemic, she told her followers in an Instagram story that she repaired her stressed pandemic skin with the help of COSRX’s snail mucin essence.
You might get the creepy crawlies when envisioning applying snail mucin onto your face, but trust us, it’s not nearly as stomach-churning as you’d think. In fact, it’s a popular ingredient in K-Beauty and I put this essence on my skin twice a day every day.
The essence’s near-perfect 4.6-star rating should ease any nerves you might have around using a skincare product that includes snail mucin.
“I can’t even explain what this did for the calmness of my skin,” wrote one reviewer. “It used to be rough and dehydrated and discolored and now it’s soft, moisturized, and even-toned. absolute holy grail skincare product.”

Here’s the deal with snail mucin: It might sound a little off-putting at first; however, it brightens, hydrates and restores your skin to a healthy glow. A dull, dry complexion should no longer be an issue once you start using this essence on the regular, especially since the formula is 96 percent snail secretion filtrate.
