love slathering this on at night because it feels so incredibly luxurious and pampering to the skin. when applied on my face it goes on pretty thick, like a buttery yet milky cream, but it absorbs SO FAST and it even leaves my skin slightly matte. NO stickiness or greasy residue at all! i have oily yet dehydrated as well as blemish-prone teenage skin but this cream hasn't broken me out and has in fact balanced my skin's oil production a little bit too. i love using this after my vitamin c serum and before my rosehip oil and it has definitely been working beautifully for my skin and i just ADORE its benefits. as compared to the snail cream in the original formula (the one in the brown tub), i actually prefer this black snail cream much more. highly recommended to all the asian beauty addicts out there! UPDATE as of 22nd feb 2017: i finished my first tub in sept 2016 and i have just repurchased my second tub a few days ago after deciding i want to go back to using this again. i haven't had ANY breakouts since nov 2016 but after using this i've had SO many closed comedones/whiteheads/clogged pores pop out. i thought it was all stress induced, but then when i went to my photo gallery and took a look at the selfies i took in aug-sept 2016 (which was the period i was going through my first tub of this) i realised my skin looked INCREDIBLY clogged back then too! i was totally oblivious that this cream might have been the culprit then and just went through the whole tub without thinking too much about it. it saddens me because i REALLY loved this and i always raved about it. i hardly ever break out from moisturisers but this just seems to give me so much issues 😭 (i used a much much more hydrating and oily moisturiser after finishing my first tub of this black snail cream but i never broke out from that) my skin is combination oily, and blemish prone, and it definitely is NOT sensitive. the ingredient list is great too, so i don't exactly know what went wrong! T-T i used to pair this black snail cream with rosehip oil (which is amazing and i have been using for years btw) back then because the cream on its own wasn't hydrating enough, so my skin freaking out definitely hasn't got to do with hydration/sensitivity related issues. because of all this i have to cut this down to 2 stars. :( i still have 3/4 of this tub left so i guess the rest of it will be used on my body. sighhh looking at my awful breakouts now really makes me sad.

I CAN'T EMPHASISE ON HOW GREAT THIS PRODUCT IS! I am a 15 year old teen who gets loads of hormonal breakouts due to puberty, and because of my sensitive skin I have to be VERY cautious with the product I apply on my face else I would get allergic reactions and little pimples that would take a while to get rid of. Upon discovering this product and using it, it has IMPROVED MY LIFE SO MUCH!! First of all, I use it 5 times a week, if not every night. I have oily skin so it doesn't matter whether it's drying or not. I apply a thin layer over my face, then put an additional thicker layer over the problematic areas with blemishes and pimples. During the process there's VERY mild tingly sensations at my acne prone areas but I know it's the mask doing its work. Within 20 minutes it gives this very tightening effect that I really like. After washing off my skin feels AMAZING! And my pores have all visibly shrunk in size.. This product is beyond amazing. I even use it as spot treatments on some mornings when my breakouts occur and it helps a great deal! Am not one to rave about skincare but this has changed my life! WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND. Have used this product for over 5 months and have tried other clay masks, but I always find myself coming back to this. Thanks iHerb!

works wonders and has done exceptional things to my skin! i have teenage combination + dehydrated acne prone skin, and was originally hesitant to use rosehip oil as i feared it would break me out, but to my amazement it hasn't so far! it helps heal my existing breakouts even faster and it gives my skin this glow which i love. i put 2-3 drops of this rosehip oil onto my palm and then rub both palms together to warm the oil up before applying it by patting it onto my face. doesn't make my face greasy at all when i do it this way, and i love using this after i apply my night cream. plus it has anti-aging benefits too which is a major plus, because even as a teen, prevention is key ;) the smell did put me off at the beginning as it smelt a little funky and SLIGHTLY fishy, but it honestly doesn't smell that bad to the extent where it's legit rancid. after applying it to my face the smell pretty much dissipates within seconds. i love this oil and i would continue to use it!

I love this! As a teen with tons of breakouts this has been a tremendous help and I love its smell! Use it every night after a mask and it really does help to effectively get rid of all the toxins buried deep inside my skin and afterwards this product leaves my skin feeling sooooo soft. Since using this I have seen positive visible changes on my face and being someone who has sensitive skin, this is definitely not harsh! Definitely a toner I will never stop using and a must-have in everyone's skincare routine. Love this!
