Mizon 'Snail Repair Intensive Ampoule' Review

Mizon 'Snail Repair Intensive Ampoule' Review

I've heard a lot of good things about this, on both Amazon and Peach & Lily so I've been meaning to try it for some time. I had just run out of my serum so I thought it was a pretty good time to try something new, especially for my skin. 

Packaging:

This is a very small bottle, and it is a serum so it is to be expected.

It comes with a dropper which helps you measure how much you need for a full face. 

It is made with glass/hard plastic so it is extremely durable, unless, you know, you drop it from very high up.

Initial Application:

It took me a long time to realize how much of this I actually needed on my face. It is quite a thick formula and even when you use the entire dropper amount, it doesn't look a lot on your hand, but it is actually a lot for you face. 

For me, I use about 3/4 of the entire dropper amount to get a good enough coverage for my face. I rub it around my hands before patting it into my skin, starting at my nose.

It is quite sticky initially so I found that I had to wait a good couple minutes before I could put in my moisturizer. But, after it dries, your skin feels smooth.

Lasting Power: 

I don't really know what to say about this, just because I wash my face twice a day so it's not like I give it a good use.

But I will say that I have not had many break outs using this product, so it definitely does good in that regard.

I have seen claims in that it reduces pores. I am not going to deny or accept that claim because I did not notice any change in pore size.

Final Thoughts: 

Honestly, this product was extremely underwhelming because all it did was to not give me break outs which, I can't even be sure is because of this product. I probably won't be able to really know it's effect until I run out, but my final thought (as of March 21st, when I wrote this review) is that this is not worth it.
