You’ve had bee venom peels and placenta facials but there’s a new beauty shocker in town – the Skin Chemists Advanced Snail DUO Moisturiser. Admittedly when I was asked to trial this product for Skin Chemists I was a little dubious as to what it would be like and (more importantly) what it was going to smell like, but I can assure you that it does not in any way resemble a snail – fragrance or otherwise. Skin Chemists are a science focussed skincare brand who specialise in producing products that are made from 100% natural ingredients and are paraben and cruelty free, so rest assured no snails were harmed in the making of the Skin Chemists Advanced Snail DUO Moisturiser.
The Skin Chemists Advanced Snail DUO Moisturiser is a multi functional product which is designed for both morning and evening use and seeks to leave the skin smooth, protected and hydrated. It contains snail secretion, tiare flower extract, coconut oil, vitamin E and creatine which help to hydrate, repair and purify the skin whilst also providing protection from free radical damage and fighting the signs of premature ageing.
The Skin Chemists Advanced Snail DUO Moisturiser comes in a 50ml pump dispenser. Although it is white in colour and does look like a cream when dispensed, in terms of consistency I would describe it as more of a thick serum. I found that it absorbed very quickly and was a great base underneath my current make up routine. I do however have quite oily skin and therefore found that despite it absorbing really quickly in a morning, during an afternoon my skin would look quite shiny. I therefore switched to using the Skin Chemists Advanced Snail DUO Moisturiser on an evening only and found that I had much better results.
I really like the fact that this product is a duo moisturiser and can therefore be used as either or both a day and/or a night cream. Not only would it be perfect for those of you who are not keen on using or buying a number of different products, it is also great for those of you who have a more advanced routine and like to tailor your routine for maximum results.
I personally have quite an advanced skincare routine and use a number of different products, however this Skin Chemists Advanced Snail DUO Moisturiser seemed to slot perfectly into my current routine and worked effectively alongside my existing products. Since using it I have noticed my skin to look more radiant and healthy and I only need very minimal foundation coverage (despite not having a tan!) which I am really pleased about.
You can buy the Skin Chemists Advanced Snail DUO Moisturiser via the Skin Chemists website priced at £72 for 50ml. There are other products in the range, including separate day and night creams and a serum.
Have you tried anything in the Skin Chemists range?
Would you give this moisturiser a go or be put off by it containing snail secretion?
I’d love to hear your thoughts!
