10 Best Korean Snail Creams

by nylonpink


Korean women have the most amazing skin. Who doesn’t yearn for that flawless, glowing skin.?! I know I want it! There are so many brands on the market making grand promises. We've already covered Korean eye patches and lip patches, now we are delving deep into the world of Korean Snail Creams.

Snail cream is one of the most hyped products of the moment. Does it live up to the hype?! We definitely think so. Check out all our findings below. 

What is Snail Cream?

Snail creams are made out of snail extracts or mucus with a series of active ingredients that can protect the skin from UV rays, bacteria, wrinkles, dark spots and other harmful externals. Snail extracts promote skin hydration, anti-aging, and smoother skin with continuous use. Snail slime is has been used for skin care since ancient Greece history. Lately, it’s built huge amounts of buzz in Korea. Finally, it’s crossed the oceans to grow a rabid fan base in the US!

What is the difference between gel cream and non-gel cream?

Different skin types react differently to various environments and products. Therefore, you really need to select the right product your skin type and situation. Regardless of your skin type, moisturizing the skin is pretty essential for all. But which moisturizer is right for your skin type?!

By and large, two types of products are used to moisturize the skin – Water-Based Moisturizers (Gel Cream) and Oil-Based Moisturizers (Non-Gel Cream). Gel cream and non-gel cream basically differ in their use of water or oil as the base properties. Which type you should choose depends on your specific skin type.

If you have dry skin, you probably want to try an oil-based moisturizer. However, some dry skin is lacking more in water rather than oil. A water based gel would be a great fit for that case.

Oil-based moisturizers are a bit of a no-no for oily skin. Water-based gel moisturizers and oil-free products are preferred for oily skin.

Is Snail Cream recommended as your regular moisturizer?

In short....YES!

Snail slime has many active ingredients that are full of healthy, restorative agents like antimicrobial, glycoprotein, hyaluronic acid, proteoglycans and so forth. These nutrients are believed to be highly beneficial agents for skin care for hundreds of years. It’s great as your main, daily moisturizer.


Snail slime contains advantageous skin care agents that are also frequently used in other popular skin care products. Moreover, the active agents (collagen and elastin) present in snail extract help to hydrate the skin and restoring damaged skin thanks to its anti-aging properties. There are several factors to consider when choosing the perfect Korean Snail Cream

Percentage of Snail Cream

If you truly want to take advantage of all the amazing effects of snail mucin, take note of what percentage of the product actually contains snail cream. Obviously a product with only 1% snail cream wouldnt be a great pick!
