COSRX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence Review

It took me awhile to review this product walaupun dah lama beli since I don't really use this as much as I use other products.

Product Name: COSRX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence
Product Brand: COSRX
Product Type: Essence
Size: 100mL
Price: RM50-60

What it claims? 
Made with all-natural domestic 96% snail secretion filtrate, the Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence is a Real Power Essence that transform the skin while keeping in the moisture and encouraging the real power of skin in a healthy way. It replenishes nutrients to the skin to prevent and repair damages and fills the skin with elasticity for a healthier, younger looking skin.

Snail Secretion Filtrate, Betaine, Butylene Glycol,1,2-Hexanediol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Panthenol, Arginine, Allantoin, Ethyl Hexanediol, Sodium Polyacrylate, Carbomer, Phenoxyethanol

This is from CosDNA:

 Butylene Glycol may cause clogged pores for some people tapi it's basically a texture enhancer. Carbomer pun texture enhancer jugak supaya dia jadi lagi pekat and rating irritant 1 which means maybe ada certain orang yang akan irritate (naik merah merah) kalau tak sesuai. Tapi semua depends on kulit masing masing. Phenoxyethanol is a preservative tapi ada jugak certain orang yang tak sesuai dengan phenoxyethanol ni.

Yang penting, this product is free from fragrance and paraben (kalau certain orang yang nak avoid paraben)

Some good ingredients are of course lah snail tu, which is really good for soothing the skin, kalau ada irritation ke pedih pedih ke, snail mucin is really good. It also can repairs skin damage and yang paling best, it can fade dark spots and acne scars! (Tapi ada certain orang yang allergic / sensitive with snail mucin so patch test dulu kalau nak guna)

It comes in a 100ml transparent plastic bottle with a black pump. Senang nak dispense product kalau nak guna. Normally I'll use 2-3 pumps, enough for the whole face. I love this kind of packaging, so hygienic.

The texture is quite thick, almost like serum. Tak mengalir langsung macam toner/lotion. So sticky, almost like gel.

Since dia tak ada fragrance, bau dia tak wangi. Dia bau natural gitu, macam tak ada bau sangat. I like the packaging, the design, the scent. The texture tu ambil masa sikit nak absorb dekat kulit tapi kulit tak rasa melekit or greasy sangat. It absorbs beautifully into the skin. Kulit rasa hydrated sangat, lembut, best. Tak break me out, tak ada irritation, pedih. Semua besttt. 

However, as much as I like this essence, I don't use this quite often sebab I prefer my other products. Tapi setiap malam I pakaikan dekat my husband. He has oily skin with acne scars. So my aim is to reduce the acne scars lah, orang panggil PIH (Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation).

Almost every night, for the past 4-5 months I pakaikan dekat dia. And I can say, the PIH reduce quite a lot. Tapi tak sure jugak maybe sebab combination benda lain (also pakai glycolic acid, alpha arbutin, sunscreen) so maybe faktor lain pun memainkan peranan jugak.

Also, for oily skin, I rasa this essence is enough as your moisturizer kalau rasa malas nak pakai moisturizer lain. It's a good product, just cleanse, use this essence and apply sunscreen, enough dah. You can skip moisturizer if you want, kalau rasa melekit sangat.

Anyways, I bought this from Shopee, normally Shopee memang lagi murah pun haha. 

Great ingredient list, good for even sensitive skin.

Will I repurchase?
Yes of course. Dah nak habis dah pun and memang nak beli lagi.

That's all, thanks for reading!
