❄️How to Get Glass Skin | Essences | COSRX Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence 🐌
❄️ What are essences?
- Essences often get compared to toners because they’re both liquid treatments that prep your skin for the rest of your routine. However there are some differences between the two! Essences tend to be more targeted to specific skin concerns and have more concentrated active ingredients. They are liquid formulas that help deliver actives, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals to your skin’s surface. They serve as an integral step in priming the skin to best receive hydration and treatment from any serums and moisturizers that follow.
- Essences often are compared to serums as well. Unlike serums, essences tend to be more lightweight and watery in consistency (like a cross between serums and toners). Like targeted treatments, they’re formulated to address skin concerns like pigmentation and redness but with the added purpose of delivering mega moisture and hydration.
🐌 COSRX Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence
- By now, I’m sure almost everyone has heard of this snail essence. It’s been super popular in k-beauty skincare routines! In case you haven’t, here is what it is: a lightweight essence that absorbs into skin fast to give skin natural glow from the inside.
- The key ingredient in this is snail mucin! Snail mucin protects the skin from moisture loss while keeping the skin texture smooth and healthy. For those like me who are worried about cruelty free products, COSRX says that no harm is done to the snails in the process of making this product. According to their website, “the snails are placed over a mesh in a dark and quiet room, where they are left alone to freely roam the net and leave mucin in their trails. There is no external process applied or the mesh to force mucin production.” This gives me a sense of security that I’m not harming any animals while using the product.
- While being super lightweight, this essence is great at moisturizing and hydrating my skin. It brings out a natural glow without any residue or stickiness left on the skin. It’s also been highly effective at soothing my skin whenever it’s irritated! The essence absorbs quickly and leaves my face looking illuminated and smooth throughout the day.
- I purchased this product for $25 at Ulta. While it is very pricy there are other websites online which can give you a much better deal! I’ve been looking into YesStyle, Mercy Cosmetics and Flip for the best deal and those websites will be where I purchase the snail essence from next.
