Missha Super Aqua Snail Renew Cream + Sleeping mask!


 Finally, back to the grind! In my absence, I've been lucky enough to do quite a lot of active sampling. Not being here for five months sucks, but hey, I've come back with a bulk of things to share, feeling festive, and ready to rumble with the reviews! First off, I want to thank those of you who stayed with this publication for the duration of my absence. Second, I've got a great product to share hot of the press. SO, as you may have seen me mention here, this is Missha's Super Aqua snail renewal cream. I got it earlier this year and used it religiously for about four months. I got about half way before I was willing to part with the remaining gel, but we'll get to that later; for now, let's get this review started:

While I must admit that I'm not a fan of the color yellow, there is something very attractive and well-to-do about it where the presentation of this product is concerned. It's a gradient-mapped foil that fades to silver on the other end with a type face that seems to me too simple to be called 'elegant'. Also, since Missha is a Korean based company, I was delighted to find that the drug facts and abstract for this product were provided in English as well, something I've found is either an uncommon practice or improperly executed (by the reseller).
The jar.
The main piece of this set is more like a gel than a creme. I say this on accounts of its consistency, opacity, and absorption rate; It's near-to-clear, on the thick side of serums, and is pulled in almost immediately by your skin.
The mask.
       This is the one that will have more of a creme feel to it. It's thick, white in color, and has to be rubbed into the skin quite a bit before completely dissipating. This product is actually and add-on but it's good to have because it works well in conjunction with the other 'creme'.
I don't really know how to describe this. It's good, I will say that, it definitely has a bit of a blended citrus/linen-esque aroma to it.
After using this product once before going to sleep, I noticed that my skin felt a lot smoother the following morning, even after having washed the product off of my face. With continued use, I noticed that discoloration from newly formed acne was significantly reduced as well. Its a great moisturizer for underneath thick foundations and I would recommend it as a new part of a problem skin regimen in the colder months, when skin tends to be more dry. I don't recommend this if you've got oily skin, however.
Buying it directly from Missha has its benefits, and it rings in at 49.99USD before shipping and taxes. Or, you can try with Amazon; it's half the price but be forewarned: there are counterfeits afoot.

The directions on the package say that you should use it after other products. Do that if your skin is dry; if not, and I mean if you have a normal, oily, or combination skin type, do not use anything before this. You may have an adverse reaction, especially if you have sensitive skin.
I'm giving this product five stars. It's well worth the money and worth the reinvestment! Plus, I love that there are no parabens or mineral oil in this, we don't need any more of that stuff in my pores.
That's a wrap for this review! If you have any questions or comments to make about this product, please feel free to share them on Twitter (@cloud9kollektiv). Thanks again for tuning in!
