Cosrx Advanced Snail Peptide Eye Cream Review

snail is the answer


As we continue our Cosrx journey, the time has come to chat about one of the most unusual eye creams I have tried. If a snail was on your mind, you came to the right place.

My Skin: dry, sensitive

About the Product

Cosrx Advanced Snail Peptide Eye Cream (28 USD; Made in Korea) - is described as a multi-functioning eye cream that hydrates, nourishes and brightens the under-eye.

Packaging: true to the Cosrx identity, you work with a simple yet practical design. The eye cream is housed in a plastic pump container, that holds 25 ml/ 0.84 fl oz worth of product. It has a relatively small weight, which works great for travel. Plus it is airless and hygienic.

Formula: this might be the juiciest bit of the entire review (since we will finally address the snail situation). 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 Peptide Eye Cream.


The advertised (and hyped) Snail Secretion Filtrate is the number one ingredient here, as it sits at the top of the list (which signals that its content is the highest). Next up are Glycerin (occlusive layer, hydration), Sunflower Seed Oil (nourishment), Niacinamide (brightening, soothing), Arginine (powerful antioxidant), and more. I love seeing star ingredients dominating the list. You also get multiple kinds of anti-aging Peptides and a bit of Sodium Hyaluronate (hydration).


Nothing, unless you spot an ingredient that your skin does not agree with.


Cosrx Advanced Snail Peptide Eye Cream Review

Texture: a serum-meets-water consistency. Quite light and thin. The Advanced Snail Peptide Eye Cream has a white color to it, however it sets clear. It does not feel sticky and gets absorbed relatively fast.

Scent: none.

Application: the Advanced Snail Peptide Eye Cream can be used twice a day, AM and PM. The pump is quite sensitive, so you have good control over how much product you take. I find that a pearl-sized dollop is more than enough for both eyes.

first impression

Under-eye feels instantly hydrated. The sensation of comfort lasts well throughout the day. The Advanced Snail Peptide Eye Cream plays well with makeup, especially water-based formulations of concealer.

long-term use

Due to the change of seasons and frequent exposure to chlorine (I am a swimmer), I have been experiencing some extra sensitivity and dryness of the under-eye. It appeared a tad dehydrated. Within a few days of the Advanced Snail Peptide Eye Cream use, I could see a rapid improvement in the texture of the delicate skin. It was noticeably plumper and hydrated with little to no dry patches. As far as dark circles go, and I am a lucky owner of hereditary pandas, I have noticed no improvement. This is to be expected, considering I was born with them and only diet, climate, and rest can improve the way they look.


If you want to show your under-eye some love this year, the Advanced Snail Peptide Eye Cream would be ideal for that. A formula of this kind will suit most skin types, including sensitive ones. This must be one of the most lightweight yet hydrating eye products I have tried in a long while. And for the price, you truly can't go wrong. If you choose between the brand's Advanced Snail Hydrogel Eye Patch and this, I would say go for the latter as the result is more long-lasting. I am curious to see what it does in months to come (a little goes a long way with this eye cream) and for now, I give it an A+ rating.
