80% Snail, you guys! This ampoule has for me been a miracle worker, I’ve used it for a little over two weeks, but the difference is there, my acne scars are slowly starting to fade, I haven’t had any major breakouts and my skin just feels happy for once!

So lets get down to the slimy details!

Directions:
Apply after cleanser, toner, and essence. Pat onto skin in upward and outward motions until fully absorbed. Follow up with moisturizer or sheet mask depending on what you feel like!
Also, this is really one of those “a litte goes a long way” products, take a little drop at a time, you don’t want to be slimy for the rest of the day because you just can’t get enough of it, trust me on this one. I might have been a little slimy the first few times I tried this gem.

Texture & Smell:
It doesn’t really smell that much, I mean, it’s 80% snail, how in the heck are they going to fit in tons of scents without ruining the beauty of it being natural and non irritant?
I don’t mind it being odorless, more room for the glorious peach smell I get from this little serum I’ve reviewed earlier; Peach Perfect.
Texture wise it’s a bit on the slimy side, but not runny, so you can easily dance around while having this on your hand, without spilling it.
For those times your jam comes on the radio while you’re caring for your skin.

Sorry for the manly hands, it’s not maybelline, I’m born with it!
This is the product right out of the container, has a slight yellow/orange hue but barely noticeable.

Spreads evenly and shines bright like a diamond!

Soaks into the skin in just under a minute! Now, I didn’t time it, but I would guess in about 37.6 seconds? Give or take.

Container:
This comes in a brown glass container, it’s simple, no fuss and does it’s job. I think it’s perfect for this product, simple and honest.
Comes with the classic dropper, which makes it easier to get the right dosage, cause you don’t wanna overdose on snail, I mean come on!
It’s also hygienic, and we do appreciate both the easy and the hygienic!

So what do I feel about it?
If you’re blessed with scars without being called scarface and kinda don’t want them, you should try this product. I’m not claiming it to be a magical godsend product, but it will perhaps help you on the road to foundation-free days where you can just slap on some eyeliner and mascara and not hate yourself when you leave the house. Yay, right?
If your skin also happens to be the place where sebum likes to build vacation homes this might help, this little snailbuddy has been nothing but kind to my skin, and I haven’t experienced a single breakout or increase in whiteheads/blackheads as long as I’ve used it. So maybe it doesn’t rid you of them, but it sure as hell doesn’t call all it’s sebum friends to tell them that your face is open for business.
As for the whole fine lines I can’t say much, basically because my face has yet to discover these lines, so maybe it’s helping prevent them? No one can say for sure. It probably moisturizes a bit, I can neither deny or verify that it does, based on the simple fact that I do use moisturizer after the ampoule, which I think all of us do.

Overall?

As said earlier in this post, I really like this product, it’s simple, helps tackle the problems I wanted assistance with, it has a very affordable price, and when I’m 90% certain that this will last for quite some time it’s even better! I will probably repurchase this unless I find another product that works better for me. But for now this snail can live safely in my routine!

Goodies in the mail!

Hello darlings, dudelings and everyone in between!

Here’s a short, but sweet post on the items mentioned on our instagram feed, that finally came to mama! When saying finally I mean after 10 days, which in reality is pretty fast, but I have the patience of an bamboo-craving panda, so 10 days for me is A LOT. When we all know that when shipping from Korea to Norway it’s a miracle that it came that fast, and right before easter, wooh!

So, here goes:

Firstly I got my hands on the Innisfree It’s Real Squeeze Sheet Mask in a variety of versions, basically because I’ve never tried them, and I love a good package deal!
I’ve heard great things about them around the interwebs, so I kinda just had to buy them. (and they’re cheap, which always is a plus)
IMGP8872.pngI have yet to slap them on my beautiful face, but I will give you guys an update as soon as I’ve tried these moisture bombs!

Next I purchased Skinfood’s Black Sugar Mask since I’ve read about it almost everywhere at it seems to be a cult favourite, and so far I adore it! I got the chance to slap it on my face this morning, so of course I did. And boy let me tell you, this one gets the morning nasties out of the pores, not like a stinging sucker that leaves your face sad and red, but you really get that babybooty feeling afterwards! And so far I’ve had no bad reaction or purging from this badboy, so I will try it a few more times before I give it the Hail Mary or Die Gary, all depending on how me and Mr. Sugar Mask get along!

Next we move on to something I’ve been eyeing for a while, Vicky already has this product, so once it’s tried and tested we might do a review where we both share our experience with this snaily goodness!
I’m of course talking about Mizon’s Snail Repair Intensive Ampoule! I really hope this slimy sucker will be a bestie for my skin, because, well, we love snails, don’t we?
This actually came in one of those “Special Edition” promotions, so I got a small All in one snail repair cream with the ampoule, this will also be tested, sniffed, applied and raved or hated, time will tell!

IMGP8867

So for now, that’s all I’ve got!
Hopefully there will be a first impression/ short review up by tomorrow on a product I know has a special place in your heart or leaves a bad taste in your mouth, depending on the skin type you’re blessed/cursed with.
Also, can I just say, free samples? Dudes, I love free samples! Or, everything free I have a tendency to like, I mean, it’s free, it smells good and you can smear it on your face, what is not to love about it?
So maybe it’s time to try out some Vit C just to see what the hype is about.. Anyways!

Until next time!
