Mizon Multi Function Formula Snail Recovery Gel Cream Review

Monday, January 04, 2016

I have been using Mizon's Snail Recovery Gel Cream for three months now and it's time for a report. What makes me most happy about this product is that it has been three months and I still haven't run out :)  I'm a little bit over halfway through with it. I use it every single morning and most times at night. A dime-sized amount goes a long way for me. 


Now, to start, I have oily skin. It makes me a little bit uncomfortable to put a heavy moisturizer on my oily skin (although apparently it is essential) and I find this to be a great mid-way point between a full blown moisturizer and just going with nothing at all.

The cream is described as "a lightweight snail gel cream containing 74% of snail secretion filtrate." 

I have been on a snail kick for some time now so don't be put off by the snail stuff. This is supposed to (from Mizon's website):
* Mucin in snail secretion helps to repair damaged skin and give clear and smooth skin. The snail gel cream absorbs quickly thanks to the fresh and lightweight formula and reinforces skin repairment.

 * Hyaluronic acid in the formula gives skin rich moisture and keeps skin smooth all day long.
 * Centella, portulaca, and green tea extract prevent skin troubles and protect skin from the outside harmful factors while soothing skin.
 * Adenosine, the certified wrinkle care ingredient, improves fine wrinkle problems. Peptides and 5 kinds of vitamins firm skin.
 * The formula is free of artificial coloring, fragrance, and paraben to minimize skin irritation. 


Now as far as the claims are concerned, I do feel my skin smooth after I use this, like baby bottom smooth, and it does last me the entire day, but I naturally don't have rough or dry skin. It is lightweight and absorbs quickly. Therefore, if you have dry skin, you will need a real moisturizer, as this is not going to cut it for you as a moisturizer alone. The wrinkle care claims, I can't really speak to since I don't have many wrinkles. I only have my eye on my crow's feet and those don't seem to be going anywhere

I use this gel cream right before I use my eye cream and right after whatever serum/essence I am using at the time. I also use this right after I use a sheet mask

Overall, I am very happy with the product, but this is definitely a case of YMMV. I would recommend this to those with oily skin and don't really need or want to use something super moisturizing and heavy. For me, if I am not wearing foundation or some kind of mattifying agent, I am very oily by noon; like I rubbed oil on my face, oily

I paid $8.99 for this on Amazon

  1. I usually skip the moisturizer ad opt for a serum and/or face oil on my oily skin. So far I haven't been brave enough to try anything snail related on my face, I admit.
