Ok, so this may sound a little odd, but have you been seeing Snail Gel everywhere lately? There is this huge trend of adding snail secretions to skin care products. Have you heard of this? I have to admit, I was so excited when Organic Doctor reached out and asked if I wanted to try this out. But, I was a little nervous too…I mean we’re talking about the secretions from snails. None the less, I had been hearing all about this Snail Gel trend and was dying to try it out!
So let’s start with why the secretions from snail are being used. Helix Aspersa Muller, this is the unique substance the snail produces to nourish and regenerate its own shell and skin. The substance, HAM, contains a unique balance of beneficial components including Glycolic Acid, Collagen, Elastin, Allantoin, Vitamins and Minerals.
Here is a look at the products I have been using.
This face wash is gentle, but gives you a deeply penetrating facial cleanser. It uses pure Tea Tree, Mandarin, and Lemon Oils, as well as Witch Hazel. This mild cleanser leaves the skin feeling clean, refreshed and perfectly balanced.
This elixir is lightweight and absorbs quickly (I love this). Per the product details it penetrates and infuses the skin with organic extracts and tropical oils to bioactively re-energize and revitalize. This is what gives the skin a hydrated, smooth natural glow.
This serum is a soothing non-greasy serum that infuses into the epidermis, instantly hydrating the skin to help leave it feeling smoother, nourished and restored. Revealing a more youthful glow.
First, this gel smells amazing. It is moisturizing and soothing. This gel offers the benefits of Helix Aspersa Muller, a unique substance the snail produces to nourish its own shell and skin. Combined with organic Aloe Vera and our proprietary blend of bioactive ingredients, it effectively soothes and hydrates the skin.
After trying these products for a little over a month I have to say. I love them. I love how they don’t leave my skin feeling oily or caked with products. This is something I look for because I am one to clean and use product immediately before going to bed. If it’s too think or oily feeling then I feel like my pillowcase gets the benefits of the product, not my face. Secondly, I love the smell of these products. There’s a slight scent of lemon and leaves you feeling and smelling so fresh and clean.
I have noticed an increase in the hydration of my skin and the best part is the melasma spots on my forehead aren’t as dark. My skin also does appear smoother and I have noticed I don’t have to use as much of my makeup products.
I have been loving it and I think you will to. The Organic Doctor Skincare products are also easily accessible. You can order these through Amazon or better yet, you can grab them from CVS. If you order through Amazon there is currently at 15% savings coupon available for Prime members.
