Makes my skin look like glass

I bought this as a first-impression product from CosRX and I donโ€™t regret it at all. I use it daily, morning and night. Iโ€™ve only been using it for a month now and my skin is just *chefs kiss*! My skin looks and feels like glass after Iโ€™ve started using this. Most of my dark spots caused from acne have disappeared and it blended into my skincare routine so perfectly! It does feel โ€œoilyโ€ when you first apply it but once itโ€™s absorbs it just looks shiny. So I would not pair this with extremely moisturizing lotions because they wouldnโ€™t pair well. Since itโ€™s 96% snail mucin, the texture is very slime-like. Just apply two pumps onto your hands, rub, and pat all over your face! You really donโ€™t need a lot of this product as itโ€™s very hydrating. This product is something I will never take out of my routine because itโ€™s now one of my favorite essences of all time!

Not for Day Use

This essence dries shiny and does not penetrate the skin. Therefore, when you wash your face in the morning, it feels like you are taking a mask off. This essence is good for overnight conditioning of your skin. Your face feels silky after washing in the morning. Product is runny so a little goes a long way. For extra hydration, mist your face prior to putting this essence on overnight.
