Just sat on top of my skin
Skin Type: oily Skin
Skin Concerns: Post Inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH), Acne, Whiteheads/Closed Comedones

This product did not absorb into my skin and just sat on top of it. It's not friendly for those with fungal acne because it has Polysorbate 85 and esters that feed fungal acne. On the upside, it has Caprylyl Glycol which inhibits fungal acne. It's like taking one step forward and two steps back.
Would recommend this to combo to oily skin types who do not have fungal acne.

A good basic snail cream, if you use this underneath you moisturizer, it is perfect

My thoughts on Mizon snail recovery gel cream
This is pure love in a tube. Simple, cheap and such a great product. I use it at night as an extra moisturizing layer underneath my other facial cream. Main important ingredients, snail mucin, hyaluronic acid, Adenosine, Centella, portulaca and green tea extract.

Absorbs quickly and doesn’t leave a greasy film and the packaging is great, easy and simple.

Gel cream, I would more call it a gel in consistency. If you have oily skin this could be the only moisturizer you need. I add it underneath my normal moisturizer at night as an extra boost or I use it underneath my sleeping pack.
If you put it in the fridge it is really cooling and can be perfect to use on top of a sun burn.  My skin is softer and smoother when I use it and feels really nice.

My skin very seldom reacts to any ingredients but as usually you should test it out before you buy a bunch of these.

I like snail filtrate in my skincare routine, as it gives lot of moisture and evens out the skin tone. This product contains over 70% of the snail filtrate, but I haven't noticed any brightening or healing properties. It has a very nice, light texture, gives nice moisture to the skin and works well with any makeup. I would recommend this to anyone with oily skin, but for dry and mature skin its not enough.
