So it was recently announced that this cult product is getting its own full skincare range, so I needed to share my love for the original.
I have my friend Beauty Queen UK to thank for getting me hooked on this, as it's one of her favourite products! At first, I really wasn't sure. Things like this - snail gel, sheep placenta, bee venom, etc - all sound more like a gimmick to me than anything.
How wrong I was. It contains a unique substance snails use to regenerate its shell and skin when damaged. It contains amazing ingredients like Glycolic Acid, Collagen, Elastin and a whole load of vitamins and minerals. What's not to love? These are all amazing ingredients for our skin as well as the snails!
The gel is a great texture. Not slimy, super light and really hydrating, it sinks into skin quickly. I find it really soothing and calming on the skin. Use it as a serum so pop on a moisturiser afterwards and you're good to go. It also has a really nice smell, which could be the Aloe Vera Leaf Juice they've added in.
It's done so well that Dr. Organic have extended their Snail Gel line to include a day cream, eye serum, facial serum, hand and nail elixir and a moisture mask. In stores now!
Also, the snail gel is collected humanely in case you were worrying.
