Ladykin Affinitic Snail Cream Review
Price: $15 on Amazon
Fragrance: Fresh scent; mildly botanical
Skin effect: Brightens skin, moisturizes, velvety smooth
Pros: Lots of product for price, leaves skin velvety smooth
Cons: Can cause irritation due to snail mucin
I haven’t tried a Ladykin product before, but I when I received the product I was surprised at how cute the jar is. It’s adorable! I was also surprised about the amount in one jar. Looks like a good value to get 100ml, I can see this lasting a long time.
I usually layer on my skincare at night, so when I applied this after all my other products I noticed I had a reaction with some redness. I think you should wait until your other products are absorbed before you use this if you have sensitive skin (wait about 15 minutes). I stopped using other moisturizers during this time to see if there was any difference in my skin with this snail cream working alone. The consistency is viscous and very light, so it should work well as the last step in your routine.
Like it says on the box, Ladykin Affinitic Snail Cream does moisturize well. I have combination skin so I had some patches of flakes here and there, but my skin was more moisturized after using for several days in a row. Consistency is key.
I also noticed velvety smooth skin immediately after application on day 4 of use. The consistency is light enough that you can use this during the day as well as at night, so take advantage of the velvety softness and moisture when applied under make up. It has a mild fragrance that disappears quickly, so it’s perfect for daytime use.
Snail mucin as an ingredient is known to heal damaged skin and moisturize, so this active ingredient does the job in this product.
Note: I do want to remind people with sensitive skin that snail mucin might cause a reaction while using this product.
Directions for Ladykin Affinitic Snail Cream:
1. Complete your routine as usual.
2. Dab a small amount on your face and spread outward from center.
3. Pat around your face to help absorption.
Tip: May cause a reaction for sensitive skin. To use, I suggest waiting until all other products are absorbed into skin (about 15-20 minutes).
