TONYMOLY Intense Care Gold 24K Mask (full size)
"After years of patting on serums and slathering on creams, I've finally found my glow thanks to snail mucin. Due to high levels of hyaluronic acid and antioxidants, snail mucin can help plump, hydrate, and calm skin over time. My favorite way to use snail mucin? In the form of a supersaturated sheet mask, like this TonyMoly Intense Care Snail Gold 24k Hydrogel Mask. It's slightly messier than traditional sheet masks and is made with fermented snail mucus essence, ginseng extract, and 24-karat gold to hydrate and plump up skin. Oh, and to get that radiant glow I've grown to love so much."

COSRX Advanced Snail Peptide Eye Cream (full size)
"This eye cream has a silky texture that melts into skin without leaving any sticky residue. Snail mucin — which is a complex mix of peptides, glycosaminoglycans, hyaluronic acid, antioxidants, and metal ions — is the power ingredient. It’s also formulated with brightening niacinamide and collagen- inducing peptides. But my favorite feature? It plays well with makeup, meaning there's no pilling when I layer my go-to concealer on top. While I still want something a bit heavier for my nighttime routine, this snail mucin-based eye cream is getting a permanent place in my daytime rotation."
— Kara McGrath, digital deputy editor
