Here at the Strategist, we like to think of ourselves as crazy (in the good way) about the stuff we buy, but as much as we’d like to, we can’t try everything. Which is why we have People’s Choice, in which we find the best-reviewed (that’s four-to-five-star reviews and lots of ‘em) products and single out the most convincing. While we’ve written extensively about the best Korean skincare products, and seen many snail mucin products pop up here and there among Rio Viera-Newton’s favorite products, here we’re delving into the best snail mucin products you can find on Amazon. (Note that reviews have been edited for length and clarity.)

Best snail mucin sheet masks

SKEDERM Snail Jelly Face Mask Bundle of 10 Sheets

“This is the second time I’ve ordered this product. I ordered a second set of these masks because [my daughter] discovered my ‘cache’ when she was home visiting. These masks cause my skin to look and feel more youthful. These masks also fit much better than others I have tried and they actually stay on my face so I don’t have to lay down or recline.”

Best snail mucin ampoule

Mizon Snail Repair Intensive Ampoule

“I am so impressed by this product. I am in my 20s and have been embarrassed about heavy forehead wrinkles and acne for a while. You can see in this picture the difference after using this product for only seven days, morning and night. The serum is not goopy or sticky at all, and it dries fairly quickly and does not leave any residue on the skin. I don’t do reviews but I felt like this needed one!!”

Best snail mucin essence

Cosrx Advanced Snail Mucin Essence
Cosrx Advanced Snail Mucin Essence

“This stuff is incredible. I had suffered from minor acne for almost two years and I finally realized the products I was using were far too harsh for my dry, sensitive skin. After using gentle products and eventually moving onto K- beauty I found this to lighten all the scarring from the years of picking at my breakouts. My scarring is still a bit noticeable but it has gotten tremendously better thanks to this product and this product alone.”

Best snail mucin moisturizer

Mizon Snail Recovery Gel Cream

“Snail stuff is the only stuff that helps eczema besides-heavy duty topical (and oral) steroids. I have severe plaques on my hands and when I use my hands a lot they bleed. I’ve been into Asian skin care for years and picked up some expensive snail essence in a last-ditch effort. Lo and behold, it worked. I switched to the Mizon snail gel and always grab it when I feel like my skin is on the verge of an eczema patch. It’s seriously life-changing for my eczema.”

Best snail cream for sensitive skin

Benton Snail Bee High content Steam Cream

“I have extremely sensitive skin with mild rosacea. Virtually every lotion I try on my face makes me burn as though I looked into the Ark of the Covenant but this has been the best thing for my face ever! So far, the steam cream has kept redness down to the point that any flareup is more pink than red. It’s made my facial skin (which was somewhat rough and blotchy) pretty darn soft and smooth. Will buy again!”

Best snail mucin wrinkle cream

YEOUTH Day Night Moisturizer for Face

“As I’ve gotten older, I’ve researched the best anti-aging secrets and peptides and snail extract are bragged about constantly — and this has BOTH!!!! When the jar was delivered, I was a bit squeamish (which is silly, I love eating escargot … come on and woman up!) but it smelled divine and was lightweight and smooth, soothing to my skin. Within a week I’ve seen a visible reduction in the fine lines around my eyes and lips. I will absolutely recommend this to all of my friends and family!”

Best snail mucin cleanser

MIZON Snail Foam Cleanser

“Recently discovered this and have found it to be wonderful. Use a pea size amount morning and night, lather and wipe away with a moist rag. So easy, no mess and non-irritating even to the eye area. There is no residue and leaves skin super soft. I am in my 70s with very dry skin. Have been using the Mizon line for some time now and there has been an amazing difference in my skin tone and brightness. Previously, I used Neutrogena wipes and thought I was very pleased with those. This is a great step up.”
