Top 10 Snail Extract Beauty Products

The Latest Craze in Beauty: Snail Mucin

The Latest Craze in Beauty: Snail Mucin

We realize that the idea of rubbing snail goo all over your face isn’t immediately the most appealing option to end or begin your day with. But hear us out: The new must-have beauty product needs to be added to your beauty bag immediately. It’s been used for years by the beauty-first Korean market, and for good reason: The acids and peptides in snail goo stimulate the production of elastin and collagen, aka the two main ingredients for youthful and glowing skin. It’s also packed to the brim with nutrients, and its many benefits also include the fading of scars, which is great for those who still have marks from past blemishes. So don’t move at a snail’s pace (sorry, we couldn’t resist) and get your hands on the top ten snail extract beauty products currently on the market to revamp your visage right in time for summer fun.
