So soothing

This is really moisturising and feels lovely on the skin. Layers well with other products and doesn't pill up. Has a lovely cooling, refreshing feeling on the skin. Really impressed with the % of galactomyces and niacinamide in this. Good price too!

Brightens my face. Love it!

I have used this product as part of my nightly routine and I must say that it really does brighten my face. My dark spots are less pigmented and my face looks hydrated. Highly recommend!

All time favourite essence

I have used the other snail essence from the same brand, and I find this essence is a lot better. It's a much stickier liquid but a couple seconds after you put it on, the stickiness goes away. I find that it absorbs a lot of my products afterwards better also. As you can see from the pictures, I have used a lot of the product already and I definitely will be buying more once it's finished.

Good hydration but don't expect miricles.

This is a light, slightly viscous, clear liquid gel. It absorbs very quickly and leaves skin feeling moist and comfortable. It is not sticky and doesn't leave any residue. Most important, there is no scent or alcohol.

Noticeable results

I've gone through this bottle and moved onto other essences but this definitely brightened up my whole face and evened out my complexion. I would say this is a good starting brightening/whitening essence. Not to mention the ingredients are good, effective and gentle. Highly recommend.

So Clean + So affective

Love this essence - it's fast absorbing and has so many beneficial ingredients, while still being gentle enough for those with sensitive skin.

Great Essence

Bought this after I finished my Neogene Real Ferment Micro Essence (which is my holy grail, trying out other essences to compare). This essence is not as watery as the Neogene one but I’m still enjoying it so far. Would recommend, especially for the price

My new favorite!

This is my new favorite essence!! This product and COSRX is what won me over with the whole K-Beauty wave!! There's no smell, which I like a lot and the gel like consistency is great. The essence absorbs quickly into the skin and I have seen amazing results after only a few weeks use!

Love it!

I have only use it for a couple of times, but I can really say that this is the most light and watery essence I have ever used. Its very thin and absorbs quickly but moisturizing! Will look forward to its whitening/brightening effect

Holy Grail

I started my Korean skincare journey last year and cannot go back. While my acne has not gone away, my blemishes heal much more quickly than they used to and my overall skin tone and texture has greatly improved. This product helps reduce my overall pore size and even my skin tone. It is light and does not leave a sticky residue on skin. I like to use this over the Snail Mucin to leave a somewhat matte finish on my skin. Yay CosRx!
