Ok, who remembers the Cosrx #SlapSnail TikTok challenge? The one where beauties were encouraged to slather on a layer of the Cosrx Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence on their face and see how far they could make the gooey, nourishing goodness stretch. TikTok-ers around the world including skinfluencer Hyram (@skincarebyhyram) and go to beauty doctor, Dr. Shah (@dermadoctor), participated in this all too fun challenge.

About Snail Mucin Essence

Did you know the Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence is the number one best seller on And for a good reason! This product went viral on social media as TikTok beauties began discovering the amazing benefits of the popular South Korean skin care ingredient, snail mucin.

Formulated with 96.3% snail mucin, sodium hyaluronate and allantoin, this popular k-beauty essence helps to nourish, hydrate and improve skin texture. I know what you’re thinking; snail mucin?! Yes, snail mucin is snail excretion. It’s a snail’s naturally derived way of protecting itself. Still a little confused? Don’t worry, no snail’s were harmed in the making of this product. In fact, they are simply monitored, well housed and fed and left to their own devices, all while leaving behind their snail mucin that is collected, treated and filtered for the formula of each product.

What is Snail mucin?

Snail mucin is actually one of the busiest multi-tasking skin care ingredients currently on the market. It helps moisturize the skin, stimulates collagen production, soothes skin irritation, and helps deliver beneficial vitamins and minerals to protect your skin barrier. Snail slime or snail mucin has been a k-beauty phenomenon for quite a while before it made its way into the western market, where some users seemed apprehensive at first. However, with proven glowing skin results, just about everyone has jumped on the snail mucin bandwagon. One beauty TikToker @theskincarelab, was thrilled to see how well the essence calmed down her eczema flare up. While others raved about how well it helped their dehydrated skin even giving them that trendy glass skin look.

Does the Snail Essence work?

The Cosrx essence is lightweight, helps improve skin elasticity and dehydration, and is suitable for all skin types and skin concerns. It's great for acne prone skin as it helps fade acne scarring and promotes skin barrier repairing due to the snail mucin skin regenerating and ultra-hydrating properties. It also helps improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. We can see why this multi-beneficial ingredient is beloved by so many skin types. Now this product went TikTok viral for a reason. On top of its miracle of benefits, this product retails for a budget friendly $25. We love affordable skin care that actually works!


Cosrx as a brand needs no introduction. This product is one of their bestsellers and they have a very firm hold over the AB skincare market. The product does as advertised by the brand and I think I will be repurchasing it.
