  • Restoration of skin texture
  • Calming effect on trouble-prone skin
  • Cool Feeling

Snail + EGF repairing gel cream comes in a jar, same as the cream ones. It doesn’t have a spatula so it’s kind of unhygienic. 


Purified Water, Witch Hazel Extract, Glycerin, Acrylate/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Cross Polymer, Snail Slime Extract, Chinese Pepper Extract, Pasque-Flower Extract, Usnea Extract, Humanoligopeptide-1, Soidium Hyaluronate, Aloe Vera Leaf Extract, Panthenol, Tocophery Acetate, Lemon Extract, Beta-Glucan, Nonoxynol-12, Disodium EDTA, Arginine, 1.2-Hexanol, Flavor

Texture & Fragrance

It has a gel like texture. It glides easily and absorbs well when applied on the skin. Like most Korean products, it has a perfumed scent.


As the last step of basic skincare in morning and evening, evenly apply it onto the skin. Gently pat it on skin. When you use it as a sleeping pack, apply more sufficient amount and massage your skin. This can give better results.

My Impression

This is a definitely not a product for my face. It gave me horrible rashes all over my face. I don’t know why, but I may have allergy reactions towards the product. 

Pros and Cons


  • No paraben
  • Absorbs easily into skin


  • Left my skin with rashes
  • Not hygienic packaging
  • Contains flavor
  • Not suitable for my skin
  • Not easily available locally
  • According to Cosdna, this product contains harmful chemical which is Nonoxynol-12.






I would not purchase it again
