REVIEW: Mizon Snail Cushion Foam Cleanser

I've always heard about the great benefits of using products containing snail extracts, but honestly I've always felt a bit creeped out about 'snail slime' or any part of snail on my face! After learning more about the benefits of snail I became less afraid. Snail supposedly helps with hydrating, healing, and regenerating your skin leaving your skin smooth, firm, and glowing. And for those of you still a bit uneasy, fear not! The snail extract is purified before being used in skin care products, so it's completely safe and less scary as it sounds.

I was kindly sent the Mizon Snail Cushion Foam Cleanser from Peach and Lily to try out and review. Since this was my very first time using a snail product, I was super excited, but very skeptical at the same time. I've always had a problem with many cleansers that left my face feeling really tight and dry.


The Mizon Snail Cushion Foam Cleanser is a cleanser that's formulated with snail extract (of course). It looks and feels like a white lotion after being squeezed out of the tube. After lathering and working it onto a wet face, it starts to become much thicker and transforms into a soft, marshmallow-like foam that sticks to impurities helping to purify pores and leaving you with a clean face.


Release an appropriate amount and work up to a rich lather using your hands or a foaming brush to massage onto your face and rinse off with lukewarm water.

When dispensed, the Mizon Snail Cushion Foam Cleanser looks and feels like a thick lotion.

When lathered, the cleanser builds into a dense and thick foam.

REVIEW (Tested for 2 Weeks):

This easily went straight to the top as one of my top cleansers and for many good reasons! The Mizon Snail Cushion Foam Cleanser left my skin feeling super smooth and clean without leaving my face dry at all. After washing it off my face and patting my face dry, my skin felt clean and refreshed, but there was no unbearable tight feeling where I felt like my face would crack if I moved a muscle. My skin looked more supple and smooth after just a few uses! I especially loved how the cleanser builds into a cushion/marshmallow-like foam the more you lather it onto your face. It feels nice on and it works without drying! 

This might be the very first cleanser where I noticed that my blackheads were being reduced with each use. I've never had a cleanser that helped keep the formation of blackheads at bay except for this one and I'm not sure what it is (maybe the snail?), but it just proves that it does work at sticking to impurities and washing them away. However, it did not completely make my blackheads disappear, so it's not a huge miracle worker, but it did noticeably reduce how many I had. 

Another reason I know this cleanser works is because I never got any breakouts when using this! As stated right above, it helped with my blackheads, but it also washed away all the dirt and bacteria from my face and I haven't seen one single blemish or whitehead/pimple at all in the two weeks since I've began using this. Now, this might not work exactly the same for everyone since I've never had really bad acne before, but I did always get that occasional small whitehead that pops up every week or so. 

I don't have any acne scars on my face, so I'm not sure if it helps with healing acne scars, but it does a fantastic job and keeping my face clean and skin looking great. I don't have any bumps or red spots on my face anymore and I am LOVING my skin!

Here is my absolutely bare skin after two weeks of using the Mizon Snail Cushion Foam Cleanser!


Washes away impurities
Reduces blackheads
Leaves skin clean and smooth
Improves skin texture and appearance
Leaves face glowing




 This might just be the best cleanser I have used so far! It does not dry out my skin which is a huge factor because most cleansers do. This cleanser actually made me conquer my fear of snail products and now want to try everything with snail in it haha! 

The Mizon Snail Cushion Foam Cleanser retails for $9.75 and can be found HERE!
