I found the secret to flawless skin? Snail Mucus.

Winter is here and so is my dry skin! My face is a lot drier in the colder months and I'm sure I'm not the only one. I have a few facemasks that I like to use a few times a week when I'm feeling diligent! 

The top two masks in the photo are a Bird's nest mask (helps brighten and improve elasticity) and a strawberry yogurt mask (exfoliates skin, brightens & helps treat acne). I've loved these masks from a Taiwanese brand called My Beauty Diary and the best thing about them is that they're so affordable, yet effective! 

Now onto the real topic of this post... Snail mucus. It's been a much talked about topic in the skincare world for some time now and I thought it was time to share my thoughts on it too. 

It really excites me when something like this crops up in the skincare world. Although it's not a completely new concept, the hype around it is phenomenal and it really shows that consumers will do anything to achieve "perfect flawless" skin. 

Skincare experts claim that snail mucus has properties to clear acne, heal scars, tighten skin and reduce wrinkles. Sounds like a miracle ingredient! 

When I was in Hong Kong earlier this summer, I saw that a lot of skincare brands were stocking the "snail mucus" ingredient in their products, which I had never seen or noticed in the UK market. I decided to give it a go and I'm so glad I did! The face sheet masks that I tried really felt like  it tightened my face and my skin felt so moisturised and nourished! 

Now, I'm not sure how much snail mucus was contained in the mask, but it definitely gave me glowing skin. I regret not buying more now as I don't know the brand of the masks to be able to find it online. Snail mucus products are a definite must-have if you're prone to dry skin in the winter. 

Have any of you tried snail mucus skincare?! 




  1. I am not sure about the UK, but I know here in the States you can buy the boxes of 10 masks from My Beauty Diary on Amazon. I wouldn't be surprised if you could there too!

    I wanted to love Bird's Nest, it was just a little too harsh for my sensitive skin. I absolutely love their black pearl mask and Bulgarian White Rose masks! There are so many more that I want to try, I really REALLY love My Beauty Diary!

    1. Aw thanks. I will check out Amazon :) I've tried out those ones you mentioned too and they're so moisturising! There are so many different ones out there, it's difficult to try them all but we will get there :) x
