A Basic Korean Skincare Routine🐌 Using MIZON Snail Repairing Cleanser & Black Snail All In One Cream

Hello everyone, welcome to today’s skincare video. In this routine I will be showing you two MIZON products; a cleanser and cream to create a basic K-beauty routine. Snail mucin is the main ingredient in these products and it has many amazing benefits. I chose these products to try out with the idea of having them as building blocks to help me maintain a minimal yet effective skincare routine.

I believe a basic skin care routine can transform your skin, it is cleansing, moisturising and sunscreen; when you follow these 3 steps and use good products you have a great foundation. Then everything else you add such as toner, essence and mask work better. Skincare is a lot to do with maintenance, everyday you need to treat your skin; so your routine does not have to be long and sometimes a basic and simple routine is your best go to. 

Firstly I will start with the MIZON Snail Repairing Foam Cleanser. I usually double cleanse either with micellar water or an oil cleanser before I go in with a foam cleaner; but it’s also fine to just go straight in especially if you are short on time.

The MIZON cleanser is thick and stringy and is meant to foam up but I used to much; so a little goes a long way with this product. When deciding on a cleanser and if it’s right for you, think about how well it cleans and removes dirt, makeup, sunscreen or any other impurities on skin; as well as if it clears your pores, and has a low pH number.

This cleanser deep cleans, is gentle and doesn’t strip the skin; it is suitable for combination to oily skin. Snail mucin is rich in protein and glycolic acid to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles while helping to boost skin’s firmness and elasticity. Combining lightly exfoliating Papaya extract and antioxidant-rich Green Tea it’s good for pore care and exfoliation, removes excessive sebum and dead skin cells, and purifies pores. It leaves skin filled with moisture and supple after cleansing, still feeling hydrated.

The only problem with this cleanser is that is has a pH of 8; very high. However, I don’t mind this product because it’s so cheap and effective. I just make sure to not use it all the time and when I do follow it with toner to balance my pH.

Next I go in with Dear, Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner

An ideal product to prepare the skin, before I start applying my other products I use this toner to once again create the environment that will maximise my skincare. This toner is effective for pH balancing, its very moisturising, great for soothing irritated skin and its vegan. The right pH numbers prevents dryness, irritation and redness and the toner contains Licorice Root which helps with skin brightening and it is anti-inflammatory. This toner treats the corners that come with breakouts and dull skin; so skin can look exceptionally smooth and brighter. 

After I will use the MIZON Black Snail All In One Cream

I was interested in this product because of the fact that it can be used morning and night; I thought I was rather pricey but it contains a lot nice ingredients and claims to help with many skin care concerns so I decided to give it a try. The cream is light and absorbs well into the skin and it doesn’t have a scent. It does well to moisturise, when I use it day time it lasts well and if I use it at night I might layer it with something else for extra hydration. 

The MIZON cream has African black snail mucin, which supplies moisture and nutrition, healing dark spots, blemishes, blackheads and damaged skin. It contains 27 plant extracts to calm and protect skin. There is Niacinamide and Peptides giving hydration whilst brightening and fighting signs of ageing, as well as Shea butter and Olive oil to nourish and retain moisture; helping to fade hyperpigmentation and reduce the appearance of fine lines so you can achieve smoother skin and look youthful. 

I haven’t been using this long enough to say if it is having such big impact on my skin, but I am hoping to see good things from this. 

If this was night time the routine can end here. If you are doing this in the morning the last step will be sunscreen. Complete every morning skincare routine with sunscreen. Without sunscreen, everything you have done is basically pointless.

I am currently loving the MISSHA  All-Around Safe Block Essence Sun SPF45 PA+++ 

This MISSHA sunscreen is a broad spectrum chemical sunscreen SPF45 and PA+++ providing high UVA and UVB protection. UVB rays cause sunburn, but UVA rays can penetrate the deeper layers of our skin, creating sun damage and ageing. And that is why you need a sunscreen that offers both forms of protection. Adding sunscreen into my skincare routine helped improve my uneven skin tone from sun damage.

This sunscreen has a lovely texture, very moisturising and not greasy or sticky; blends into the skin effortlessly with no white cast. I am comfortable enough to wear this sunscreen everyday. I haven’t experienced any skin irritation or acne breakouts from this product so it has quickly became a favourite.
