Beauty addicts will love to try this one! Snail cream is extremely popular in South Korea as an anti-ageing and whitening treatment and to treat dry and peeling skin as well. In essence, snail cream is a very effective moisturizing cream that can make skin look brighter and younger. One tub of cream can last at least several months, even with daily usage. The main ingredient here is snail mucin, a protein that’s important for skin cells to grow and reproduce.
