K BEAUTY SNAIL DUO LANDS IN THE UK
K-Beauty brand COSRX has announced the launch of their much-hyped snail skincare duo to the UK. Snail filtrate has become a fascination in UK skincare, introduced originally by South Korean experts as an unusual ingredient that helps protect the skin from moisture loss while improving skin elasticity, pigmentation and texture. Snail mucin also contains hyaluronic acid and has antimicrobial properties, which makes it great for fighting off acne-causing bacteria. The new COSRX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence comprises 96% of skin friendly snail secretion filtrate that is effective at repairing damaged skin, improving skin elasticity and maintaining hydration level all day long. The COSRX Advanced Snail 92 All in One Cream contains 92% snail secretion filtrate, giving it the slick texture of a gel and all the soothing, healing, and calming properties of mucin, that regenerates and repairs the skin. The cream is formulated to prevent breakouts and maintain skin elasticity, as well as leaving skin nourished, hydrated and healthy.
