As of this moment they offer three serum products – Rose Galactomyces Synergy Serum, Propolis Vitamin Synergy Serum and Black Snail Restore Serum which I will be reviewing today. Rose and Propolis serums retail for 13.99 USD and the Black Snail one retails for 15.95 USD. For that price you get 50 ml of product, which is pretty impressive since the standard amount of product you usually get is 30 ml.
UNIK Black Snail Restore Serum comes packaged in a heavy glass bottle with a dropper system, which I like since it’s more hygienic to use. This product claims to powerfully restore and nourish skin and also helps with lifting, whitening and wrinkle care. It is suited for all skin types.
Snail Secretion Filtrate, Centella Asiatica Leaf Water, Methylpropanediol, Glycerin, Niacinamide, Glycereth-26, Water, 1,2-Hexanediol,Sodium Hyaluronate, Saccharomyces/Viscum Album (Mistletoe) Ferment Extract, Lactobacillus/Soybean Ferment Extract, Laminaria Japonica Extract, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Seed Extract, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Extract, Sesamum Indicum (Sesame) Seed Extract, Solanum Melongena (Eggplant) Fruit Extract, Saccharomyces/Imperata Cylindrica Root Ferment Extract, Caprylyl Glycol, Butylene Glycol, Allantoin, Centella Asia Tica Extract, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract, Artemisia Vulgaris Extract, Vaccinum Angustifolium (Blueberry) Fruit Extract, Ginkgo Biloba Leaf Extract, Rosa Canina Fruit oil, Carbomer, Arginine, Pentylene Glycol, Adenosine, Ethylhexylglycerin, Xanthan Gum, Aspalathus Linearis Extract.
The product itself is a transparent and colourless lightly viscous liquid. It has no smell – good thing for everyone out there sensitive to fragranced skincare.
It is to be used after your usual cleansing routine, AM and/or PM. It can be used before toner application, but I like to use it after my toner, since I use the toning step to remove all of the leftover makeup and dirt from my skin. I find that one dropper of product is sufficient for my entire face and neck area – I lightly pat it all over my face and let it absorb before my moisturiser and eye cream.
Once applied to the skin it takes few moments to completely absorb, leaving my skin hydrated and smooth. Since the finish on the skin is satiny, it can be layered with other skincare products and works well with my makeup. I have also noticed it gives my makeup that dewy looking touch that everybody is talking about. Also it smoothens out my fine lines, especially around the mouth area.
I have been using this product for the last 15 days and it’s probably too early to tell if it’s working, but my skin feels smooth, hydrated and healthy. I really have no negative things to say about it.
Even though there is no extensive research on the effect of snail mucin as a topical treatment, I love snail products in my skincare routine. I have been using COSRX’s Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence and Mizon All-In-One Snail Repair Cream and had good results with both. UNIK Black Snail Restore Serum is no different. I find that snail secretion products help my skin heal faster, calm irritation and make my face feel smooth, nourished and healthy. Snail mucin also helps with my PIHs (post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation).
Black Snail Restore Serum is a decent and affordable basic skincare product and I highly recommend it.
