Say hello to the new It-product: snail slime
I always relish the times when the It-ingredients in creams are nice things, like Rosehip Oil, that smell nice and are enjoyable to actually apply, because I know that sooner than later another one of those disgusting wonder ingredients is going to come along and ruin it. Like that bull semen hair mask. And snail slime.
Yep, snail slime is apparently the Next Big Thing in beauty. This news comes to us unsurprisingly from Asia - Korea to precise, where skin care brands are packing the gooey, slimy residue into moisturisers. So what does it do? Apparently the slime is rich in protein, glycolic acid, and elastin, which all contributes to skin regeneration, helping cell turnover which will fade scars and heal blemishes (at least, that's what the Super Aqua Cell Renew Snail Cream by Missha - above - claims it will do). As usual, the beauty buffs in Korea are on top of everything - they've started adding this to BB Creams too so its skin strengthening properties are combined with sun-protection and coverage.
So - is this one bandwagon you won't be jumping on, or are you happy to smear slime on your face if it'll work? Tell us in the comments.
