Another Great Way to Add Snails To Your Beauty Routine
Once I learned about snail mucin, I was obsessed. It’s my favorite thing for healing skin, which I am almost always in need of. I was taking advantage of Soko Glam’s Black Friday sale and stocking up on my favorites (like this Snail Mucin Essence), and I decided to throw a new snail product in my cart. I already love Benton’s Snail Steam Cream and their Snail Sheet Mask, so I was eager to try their Snail Bee Ultimate Serum. When you find jeans that you love, you should buy them in every color, and when you find a Kbeauty brand that makes great snail products, you should try every iteration they sell.
This serum’s consistency is exactly what you’d think snail slime would be like, which I think is kind of satisfying. It’s viscous and kind of tacky, so I find it’s best to put a small amount on my fingertips and then quickly pat it onto my skin. The directions say to use 3-4 drops, but the consistency of this serum does NOT lend itself to dispensing in drops, so you’re left to just guess. There’s a tiny learning curve, and I have definitely dispensed too much and gone to bed with serum on my neck, elbows, wherever I could use excess product.
At first, your skin will be a little sticky, but this serum absorbs fast and I like to put at least one other moisturizing, healing product over this to really seal it all in. If you, like me, often have spots of hyperpigmentation after a breakout, this serum (like all snail products) will cut the fading time in half. For me, there isn’t a clear winner between all the Benton Snail Bee products I’ve tried. They are all for different moods. Some nights you want to use a product that has a smell you can’t place but you love (steam cream). Some nights you want to use something lightweight and quick (serum). And sometimes you want to spend an hour looking like a serial killer (sheet mask). Follow your heart!
