Cosrx's New Triple Snail Complex Essence-Serum is a Winner
We all know and love the Cosrx cult classic Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence. The Advanced Snail Radiance Dual Essence takes it to a whole new level. Why do we love her? It takes an already solid product and amps it up to provide a powerhouse essence-serum hybrid that can benefit any skin type.

Benefits of Snail Secretion for the Skin
Snail really brings the hydration to help plump your skin, but also provides some anti-inflammation benefits as well. For me it’s really a superstar ingredient because I find it helps add a light layer of nourishing hydration, but also really brings relief to my skin when it’s going through a period of breakouts or general irritation. Snail is also said to have anti-aging benefits. As someone in their mid-20s I’m definitely interested in ingredients like snail secretion, which for me is more of preventative anti-aging rather than aggressive.
What I liked about the Advanced Snail Radiance Dual Essence
I actually used to add a couple drops of my niacinamide serum into the 96 Snail Essence, so the duality of this new Essence is legitimately perfect for me. The snail portion and niacinamide portion are each separated in the bottle and mix once it is pumped out. It gives me everything I wanted in one step, then I can move onto a different serum without feeling like I’m doing too much to my skin in one routine.
I find this to be more cosmetically elegant than the original, (which I love) but it has a bit of tack in my experience. The original Essence is very much so a simple, straight forward product so I love the fact that they created this sort of ‘sister product’ which amps up the anti-aging and brightening benefits that comes along with the added niacinamide solution. While this is a moisturizing essence, I really feel like it shines in an acne prone/sensitive routine. The snail will help calm the inflammation of breakouts while the 5% niacinamide will work to combat post inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
This has been a well loved product in my collection, and I’ll definitely be on the lookout for more snail based skincare gems.
