Korean product haul: Elisha Coy
The French have long made the consumption of snails or escargots into a popular trend. Have you considered other things one could do with snails? How about putting them on your face? Snail slime or mucus to be exact! There are several brands touting their versions of the “perfect snail mucus cream”.
The Elisha Coy Skin Repairing Snail Eye Balm list “snail secretion filtrate” as its first ingredient and claims to consist of 40% snail slime extract. It’s consistency is gluey but not sticky. It absorbs quickly into the skin and as a natural humectant it keeps your eye area hydrated until your next application: reducing under eye darkness and fine lines. Although the 40% snail slime can take most of the credit for the benefits of this eye balm it is the combination of skin healthy ingredients that sets Elisha Coy’s snail eye balm apart from others.
