If you are always looking for new skincare products and ingredients to add to your daily routine, it might be time to consider adding a snail extract-infused product. Yes, it's exactly what it sounds like: Mucus produced by a snail. And while it seems like an unusual blend to use in a skincare product, the ingredient has tons of benefits for your skin, like treating signs of aging, reducing inflammation, and even healing wounds.
One formula to consider is Yeouth's day and night cream. It's formulated with ingredients like green tea, peptides, and hyaluronic acid that all smooth and hydrate the skin. But the most unique element in the formula is the snail extract — literally the mucus from a snail. Another majorly impressive benefit of the snail mucin? It helps to smooth signs of aging thanks to the natural hyaluronic acid that is naturally found in the snail slime, so it locks in moisture to the skin, which leaves a plump and dewy glow.

Aside from its healing and anti-aging benefits, the hydrating moisturizer also contains peptides. "Peptides have anti-aging properties, [and] help stimulate collagen production as well as locking in hydration," dermatologist Dr. Michelle Green previously told InStyle. "They contain antioxidants that minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by repairing damaged skin cells. In addition, they contain anti-inflammatory properties that help soothe the skin, reducing inflammation," she explained.
The snail extract cream from Yeouth has racked up over 2,100 five-star ratings, with shoppers calling it "fantastic" and "one of the best creams they have ever tried." One shopper wrote that the cream is a "game-changer," especially when it comes to targeting the crepey appearance of their skin. "It has only been six days, and there is a huge difference! Take a look at my parenthesis lines. They look so small... [This facial cream is] not only working, but saving me hundreds of dollars, which gives me more to spend on other things."
Another reviewer highlighted how "awesome" the product is, pointing out how it "hydrates, helps battle fine lines and wrinkles, smoothes skin, and reduces my acne scars and age spots."
And a final shopper, who said they "saw results after two to three days" called the cream their "holy grail," adding, "My face looks more youthful and supple. Also, my acne cleared up. I appreciate the amount that's in the container because you don't need much of it. I would happily pay $50 for it because of how amazing the formula is. My fine lines are also less noticeable."
The cream visibly transforms the skin almost "instantly," according to other shoppers, and you really can't get better than that. So, what are you waiting for? You can indulge in Yeouth's moisturizer that you can use both day and night now for $21.
