If you pay attention to K-beauty trends, then you'll know that snail mucus has been all the rage the last couple of years. Renowned for its natural anti-aging properties, snail mucus can be used in all sorts of products to give its wearer rejuvenated, glowing skin. THEFACESHOP decided to take things up a notch even more by pairing snail mucus with pure 24k gold to amplify your glow even further and that is how the new Hwansaenggo line was born.
So just why snails and gold? Here's a mini breakdown of the benefits of both:
THEFACESHOP's special snail mucus extract is full of moisturizing and anti-aging ingredients:
- Snail mucin - helps improve and maintain skin's natural moisture barrier and regenerative powers
- Allantoin - is a known moisturizer that helps to improve skin's texture and minimize pores
- Collagen and elastin - helps improve skin's elasticity and bounce
- Glycolic acid - accelerates skin's renewal process and helps it shed excess impurities
And the benefits of putting gold on your face instead of in the bank? Well, according to THEFACESHOP, gold naturally helps detox skin, by drawing out impurities, while simultaneously encouraging it to regenerate itself for healthier, more radiant skin.
In accordance with such high-end ingredients, the Hwansaenggo line comes packaged much more stylishly than regular THEFACESHOP products, with a price point to match. Although very glamourous and elegant looking, I do wish THEFACESHOP had invested in glass packaging versus plastic, but other than that very minor complaint, I thought every product in the Hwansaenggo line was gorgeous to behold.
THEFACESHOP went all in with the Hwansaenggo line, providing products for every step in your beauty routine.
The Hwansaenggo Escargot Golden Firming Cleansing Foam ($30) is a light foam cleanser that gently cleanses away dirt while hydrating it with snail mucus, ginseng and mushroom extracts.
The Hwansaenggo Escargot Golden Firming Toner ($50) is a hydrating toner that's meant to rebalance the skin after cleansing and prep it for your other products. This one is extra special as it contains snail mucus, black ginseng and hyaluronic acid.
The Hwansaenggo Escargot Golden Firming Serum ($75) is a powerhouse of snail mucus extract, black ginseng and 24k gold to nourish and repair skin from environmental damage which can increase the effects of aging.
The Hwansaenggo Escargot Golden Firming Eye Cream ($75) provides concentrated moisture to your delicate eye area while still feeling lightweight enough to use both morning and night.
The Hwansaenggo Escargot Golden Firming Cream ($69) is a luxurious cream that helps to firm up sagging skin while repairing and protecting against environmental damage.
The Hwansaenggo Escargot Golden Firming Gel Eye Mask ($6) is an extra boost of moisture for when your eyes are especially tired. I've never used an eye mask before, so I'm excited to see how this fares!
The Hwansaenggo Escargot Golden Firming Gel Mask ($8) is pretty pricey for a face mask, but like all the other products in this line, it contains premium snail mucus extract, niacinamide and hyaluronic acid to deeply moisturize skin for a renewed radiance.
Besides all of the above, the line also includes a brightening bird's nest face mask, an emulsion and a travel sized pack if you just want to dip your toes into the snail thing.
You can purchase the entire line in THEFACESHOP stores across Canada and online now!
