best cream i ever use
best cream i ever use
I have very sensitive combinationed skin and in ten years of searching for face cream that would suit me, this is so far the best one! It's easy to apply, and it absorbes fast. It doesn't leave any sticky film on face and the skin is soft and smooth after use. In less than 14 days my skin has improve for 80%. I was affraid of the smell, but it almost has none. I usually don't write reviews, but this cream really deserves best rate!!

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.
maybe try a different one

i used it for a couple of weeks and all i really noticed was more blackheads and breakouts, did not see any benefits really, and the smell makes me think of cheap cosmetics, the ingredients listed are mostly pretty good and i might try it again after some time because maybe you cant tell until you have used it long enough and i want to give it another chance, but for now it just made my skin worse/did not do anything and i stopped using it. i will update if i see any positive changes
Nice to use

But it is just a moisturizer to me. No improvements if you have already have a healthy aging skin.
Not So Great

It doesn't moisturizer well and it makes my skin sort of sticky
