Dr Organic Snail Gel – Review

Snail gel? You can’t really expect me to put that on my face can you!?
Well, the first time I heard about Dr Organic Snail Gel it scared me, I hated the thought of putting it on my face. I really wanted to try it out but was slightly freaked out so my boyfriend kindly purchased this for me for Christmas. Basically, the slime from the snails is collected as they crawl over special glass, sounds disgusting right?  However this anti-aging gel uses Helix Aspersa Muller which is a unique substance that contains collagen. elastin, glycolic acid, allatoin, vitamins and mineral. Who ever though that snail slime could have all those good ingredients in it!
I have been using this for a few weeks now and absolutely love it, I use if after my toner in the morning, but before moisturising my skin. It leaves my skin so soft and really soothes it. As I have quite sensitive skin it goes a little red after washing my face, and this really helps calm it down! Even though it is a gel, it’s very moisturising. I have combination skin so sometimes get dry patches around my chin and it works wonders on it. Also, it smells of lemons which is quite lovely!

It has a thick clear consistency, but doesn’t leave your face feeling sticky and sinks into the skin really well. Also a little goes a long way, you only need the smallest amount. Don’t let the thought of it being snail slime put you off as I love this product and now is a staple in my everyday skincare routine.
It’s available to purchase from the Holland & Barrett website and costs £19.99 for a 50ml pot. It’s a little pricey, but well worth the money!

    Great review. I've been wondering what this product is like for a while. Does it have a scent? I'm not sure what snails smell like but I can't imagine it's great haha! Xx

    I've heard so many good things about snail gel. As someone who is obsessed with skincare, I will definitely have to purchase this at some stage. It does still freak me out a little that it's essential snail slime…

      Haha, when you start using it you quickly forget that it's essentially snail slime :) xx

    This intrigues me so much, I'd love to give it a try despite not for one minute enjoying the idea of snail slime on my face.

    I'm glad you did a review on this because like you, the sound of snail gel doesn't sound too glamourous too me haha. I may give this a try as I hear Dr. Organic products work wonders on dry skin!

    This sounds interesting! Over the last few weeks, my skin has been terrible, it's become ultra sensitive, so I may have to try the Dr. Organic range.
