MY THOUGHTS ON PRODUCT PERFORMANCE
the Skin House Vita Snail First Essence contains a whooping of 95% snail secretion to nourish the skin for a firming finish, offers gentle exfoliation, improves skin elasticity and keeps skin hydrated. After cleansing, dispense essence to palm and apply to face in gentle tapping motion to promote absorption into skin, then follow with treatment and moisturiser of your choice. This essence could be use in morning and/or nighttime routine. When use in the morning, make sure to always follow with sunscreen for skin protection. The texture of the essence is lightweight and watery compared to usual essence, which makes it easier to absorb to the skin. Upon application, I could feel a cooling sensation and there is a hint of citrus scent which I love, non-sticky/slimy feel at all. After application, my skin feels so hydrated, smooth to touch, calm and balance overall. Gentle enough to use daily. If you are not the type of using multiple skincare steps, just this essence to prep the skin then moisturiser and sunscreen would be fine in the morning. I have no skin irritation or reaction while using the essence. It's too soon to tell with the brightening effects, I'll use it for more to truly see the effects on brightening, smoothen texture. I just love that the essence packed with numerous of good ingredients for the skin such as contain centella, panthenol, niacinamide along with snail secretion and vitamin c. I don't see me switching out of this essence anytime soon. *Patch test is recommended for first time user
