Product Empty: Mizon Snail Recovery Gel Cream Review


I heard a lot of good things about the Mizon Snail Recovery Gel from its users online, but when I lived in Korea I never heard anything about this product. Actually I only saw ads for the Mizon CC Cream which seemed really popular and therefore I always wanted to try out the brand Mizon. But when living in Korea I never saw it in shops at all, I even went looking for it but without luck, it seemed to be only available online.
I’ve tried snail skin products before and had good experiences with it and therefore this cream really disappointed me. I before tried the Holika Holika snail cream and ampoule, which helped a lot to soothe my skin redness, also made my skin look more youthful and when using it I got less blemishes.

The Mizon Snail Recovery Gel did help soothe a little redness when I put it on before going to bed but otherwise it broke my skin out and felt so sticky on my skin. I even noticed my pillowcase sticking to my skin even when I waited to go to bed when using it. This product really disappointed me.
It’s a very cheap product, but I would rather any day spend more money buying snail products which I know are good,  like the snail creams from both It’s Skin and Holika Holika (with the ampoule).
I did use up the whole product based on the hope that I would get a positive reaction to it after using it a few weeks, but unfortunately that wasn’t the case for me.

My skin is sensitive, has a lot of redness and is partly oily and I have suffered from acne since I was 13, I’m now 25 years old.
I still would like to try out the Mizon CC Cream in the future.

What arrived in my mailbox

I’m very excited to try out these two products in the pictures above; “Etude House Juicy Cocktail Gradation Nails – Kiss Of Fire” and “Etude House Sleeping Pack – Pore & Oil Control”. I already have the gradation nail polish in another colour (“Screwdriver”) and I was really impressed with the results of that, so it’ll be fun to try out the pink more girlish gradation nail polish set.

Also I’ve tried Etude House’s Sleeping Pack previously but only the “Bright & Soft” and the product lasted me over 6 months. It really lasts forever, and I’m not someone who just uses very small amounts of skincare products. The “Bright & Soft” Sleeping Pack from Etude House really impressed me with its results and I quickly got addicted to the product. It’s the first sleeping pack I ever used, and after that I’ve also tried Holika Holika’s “Honey Sleeping Pack – Blueberry” which I also adored, especially for it’s supercute glass container shaped like a small cute beehive. I felt a bit like Winnie The Pooh when using the product, it’s super cute.
This sleeping mask from Etude House says to be pore minimizing and makes the skin smoother and less oily, so I’m very excited to see the results.

Ulzzang Make-Up Tutorial – Ready Black

Here’s a make-up tutorial I did for an ulzzang look a while back when I was living in Seoul, South Korea. I never posted it here before so I thought maybe some of you guys want to see it 🙂 I bought two books in Korea that show these tutorials for ulzzang make-up styles, but they’re fully written in korean hangul and I felt like I wanted to share this with the english-speaking world too. Also, these books are really expensive to be bought online, and I got them for less than half the price in Seoul. So if you’re interested in korean make-up styles, mainly the ulzzang-look, please tell me and I’ll do more of these videos, I know I could do at least 100 more of them. You’ll give me a lot of inspiration if you tell me you’re interested. I think this look reminds me a little of Park Jiyeon’s make-up style from T-ara. I hope you enjoy trying it out!

Have a great day and I hope you enjoy the tutorial!
