Snail mucin is a hallmark ingredient in K-beauty skincare products. Long lauded for its ability to moisturize and heal skin, you can find it in a variety of products such as essences, serums, creams, and masks. I’m a solid fan of this particular ingredient, and I’ve found that it works with my skin wonderfully well.
On the outside, this is an unassuming moisturizer. It isn’t pricy (it’s quite affordable, actually) and it doesn’t have super flashy packaging. One might be inclined to think that it won’t wow you much, but that is where you would be wrong!
Paula’s Choice Barrier Repair Moisturizer from their Resist line is an amazing product for beginning retinol users, or for people with sensitive skin that have to avoid stronger formulations. I’ve been using this moisturizer for six months now, and I’m incredibly happy with how my skin has changed over that time.
