Welcome to the third and final installment of our snail trilogy. In previous posts, we chatted about the Cosrx Advanced Snail Peptide Eye Cream (reviewed here) and the Advanced Snail Hydrogel Eye Patch (reviewed here). Today's post is extra special because we will discuss the most viral, top best-selling snail product of them all. Is it worth your time and money though?

My Skin: dry, sensitive

About the Product

Cosrx Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence (25 USD; Made in Korea) - is described as a "multivitamin" that helps nourish, rejuvenate, hydrate, and repair the skin. It is particularly great for dryness.

Packaging: true to the brand's aesthetic, you get a simple matte plastic bottle with a pump. Every bottle contains 100 ml/ 3.38 fl oz worth of product. The size is on the medium-large side, which might not be the most travel-friendly option out there.

Formula: if you have been curious about the power of a snail in skincare, then you came to the right place. How ethical is it to use a snail secretion? According to Cosrx all of the brand's snail products are ethically sourced and do not harm the animal. You can read about the process in a separate article here.

Let's continue with some pros and cons of the Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence.


The essence is formulated with 96.3% of the Snail Secretion Filtrate. This is the highest amount across all snail products within the Cosrx family. Besides various humectants, you also get Sodium Hyaluronate (hydration), Allantoin (soothing, hydration), Panthenol (hydration, humectant), and Arginine (antioxidant, amino acid). I love seeing advertised ingredients being mentioned at the top of the list, which means that their actual content is high.


Nothing. Unless there are ingredients here that your skin does not agree with.


Texture: a clear slimy, yet non-sticky consistency that feels light and absorbs with ease. Has a dewy finish and a weightless feel to it.

Scent: none.

Application: the Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence can be used twice a day, mid AM or PM routine. Ideally, an essence of this kind is used after cleansers/toners and before serums/moisturizers. One to two pumps are all you need for your face and neck.

This formula is not intended for use under your eyes. Instead, you can opt for the Advanced Snail Peptide Eye Cream reviewed here. Together the two are a dream duo.

first impression

Skin feels instantly hydrated, soothed, and refreshed. Other products play incredibly well with the Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence. There is no pilling in combination with sunscreens or makeup.

long-term use

I have gone through multiple bottles of the Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence. So, this is not my first rodeo with this product. I can say with confidence that this has been the best addition to my skincare routine in recent years. I immediately notice how parched my skin feels whenever I stop using the essence. Deep hydration is where this Cosrx creation truly shines. No matter what other products I have in rotation, the Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence remains an essential element of my skincare regimen. It ensures my skin stays plump, soothed, and nourished.

Cosrx Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence Review


If dehydrated, sensitized skin is your concern, I have a feeling you might enjoy the Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence. I have been testing this Cosrx creation for the longest time and with every possible product under the Sun and it has been working wonders for me. It strengthens the skin barrier and keeps dryness and irritation at bay. A true multi-tasking genius if you ask me! From my experience, it brings out the best out of any other product I layer on top of it. I do get why it has been selling like hotcakes for many years now and give it an A++ rating.
