The battle of the Snail Creams! I will give a very short and sweet overview of the two snail creams I have tried.
I’ve tried Missha Super Aqua Cell Renew Snail Cream and the Mizon All in One Snail Repair Cream.
These are both great creams in my opinion. They both do different things. The Missha one is more of a last step moisturizing gel type cream while the Mizon is more like a treatment you apply before your skincare.
Missha Super Aqual Cell Renew Snail Cream is a gel. It is not sticky but takes a few minutes to absorb in your skin.
Mizon All in One Snail Repair Cream is a creamy gel texture. It is slightly sticky at touch but absorbs really well. The stickiness is due to the snail content. But it is not gross at all. I actually love using it. It really hydrates well.
Missha has a lovely gold packaging. It comes in a jar with a spatula, but the actual product is very little in that big jar.
Mizon has a no frill packaging. You get as much as you see. It comes in a dark jar. There was no spatula in my packaging.
Missha – $45 on their website, $35+/- on Amazon.
Mizon – $18+/- on Amazon
Missha has 70% snail mucus in it.
Mizon has 92% snail mucus in it.
I loved both of these products. I personally I like the idea of using snail mucus as a treatment in my skincare regime. I find the Mizon cream to be very hydrating and love that it has 92% snail mucus in it. More snail the better! Missha being a gel was great as a last step but I find it not great as a stand alone moisturizer. Mizon also absorbs better and lasts a longer time compared to Missha. They both helped lighten scars, but I think that is a property that snail mucus has so Mizon having more snail mucus in it did a better job at lightening and healing my skin.
Which one would I repurchase? Mizon. Hands down. It has more snail and is a great treatment step in your skin care regime. I use mine after my Innisfree Green Tea Seed Serum and Treatment Essence.
