Yes, you read that correctly, I put snail slime on my face.
While I was on holiday, I came across this aloe vera moisturiser which is also combined with purified snail slime. At first, I pointed it out to my friend, Zoe and I was so shocked and to be honest a little grossed out but she told me that actually, the slime has a lot of benefits and is great for your skin.
The cream itself not only has SPF in it, which I love but it also claims to even out skin tone, has anti ageing properties and hydrates your skin – which just sounds like my kind of miracle cream. The 100ml pot was only €5 so I thought why not give it a go and see what it’s like. Oh my goodness; why didn’t I know about this before?
I have been using this cream for just over a month now and I have noticed such a difference in my skin. I can’t really tell if the elasticity has improved but my skin is definitely more hydrated and even and it makes my makeup stay on for longer which is always an added bonus.
As I bought in in Tenerife, I was worried about being able to re-purchase when I run out but there are actually a few places in the UK that sell similar products and you can also buy it online thankfully.
What’s the strangest skin care product you’ve used and would you ever use snail slime?
