Summer Outfits & Snail Mucin

Hey you! I know summer is not until June 21st but I feel like it is already in full swing. Although I love the long hours of daylight and not having to check the weather forecast everyday, nothing can replace fall/winter fashion so naturally I have already started bookmarking items for the fall. It’s just how I roll. Aside from that I am still rocking my casual summer looks and staying hydrated and moisturized. So let’s get into these looks!

Snail Mucin

I revamped my skincare routine a few months ago and added a couple of new products to the roster. One of them is snail mucin. Wait – let me explain first. 

This amazing product is from CosRx, a korean skincare brand that makes some great skincare products and has rave reviews. It’s called Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence. Now I know that snail mucin doesn’t have a ton of research that supports being effective in skincare but I was still very intrigued to try it. I figured since I wanted to use an essence in order to provide additional hydration then it would come in handy.

The main ingredient is 96% snail secretion filtrate but it also has sodium hyaluronate which comes from hyaluronic acid, another hot skincare ingredient on the market right now.  

The purpose of using an essence as part of your skincare routine is to hydrate and penetrate the skin with powerful ingredients right after cleansing and before you moisturize. The formula may seem a bit watery but don’t fooled – an essence packs a punch. 

From Cosrx website: Formulated with 96% Snail Secretion Filtrate(Mucin), this essence protects the skin from moisture loss while keeping the skin texture smooth and healthy. This essence is created from nutritious, low-stimulation filtered snail mucin in order to keep your skin moisturized all day while bringing back your skin’s vitality. The filtered snail mucin replenishes and revitalizes nutrients with looking healthy skin. It’s suitable for all skin types. For best results, use together with Advanced Snail 92 All In One Cream.

I knew the first week I used this product that I was in love and wanted to continue using it. Snail mucin is very thick and feels soothing when spread across the face in particular right after exfoliating. The application process is very simple – just put it on your hands and spread across the face or I just use the pump and add the product directly to my face before spreading it out. If you have dry/sensitive skin and you are looking for extra moisture, then this is a product I recommend and it is definitely CieraNicholle approved! 

Which one of these summer looks is your fav? And have your tried snail mucin before? Please comment below your thoughts!
