Dr Organic Snail Gel Face Serum

I am obsessed with products which sound really odd and slightly weird - Sheep Placenta Cream, Dragons Blood Facemask, Be Venom and the product I have currently been loving by Dr Organic - Snail Gel Serum.  Now before you all sit there thinking 'snails ewwww' all I can say is don't knock it till you try it!

I first came across Snail Gel last year whilst at a Blogger event and I got to chat to some lovely people from Dr Organic who told me all about the range and where the idea came from, infact this is what Dr Organic has to say :

"Snail Gel boasts a wide range of anti-aging benefits including softened wrinkles, smoother skin, antioxidant protection and improved hydration. We combine Snail Gel’s unique ingredient Helix Aspersa Muller with a proprietary blend of bioactive, natural and organic extracts to formulate innovative skincare products. Specifically designed to hydrate, soothe and moisturise the skin, helping to develop a natural youthful glow".






Dr. Organic Snail Gel Range contains the mucus slime known as Helix Aspersia Muller, this is the slimy substance that the snails produce in order to rebuild and repair their damaged shells or skin.
It is quite a unique ingredient that is rich in complex blend of proteins, Glycolic Acid, Collagen and Elastin, all of which help with regeneration and reparation. Add to that with the further ingredients of Olive Leaf Extract, Aloe Vera Leaf Juice, Lemongrass Oil, Vitamin E, Rose Fruit Oil plus a few more and you have a formula which is said to have created a soothing non greasy serum that penetrates deep into the epidermis, instantly hydrating the skin to help leave it feeling smoother, nourished and restored, revealing a more youthful glow.

Knowing this has snail slime within it, I hadn't expected the serum to be anything like it is.  Firstly Lemongrass as a scent is really dominant and that is the main scent of the serum, despite any other ingredient.  The texture of the serum is not at all slimy, I am still not sure whether or not that disappoints me, but when applied to the skin it does feel lovely and cool, it is incredibly lightweight and absorbs really quickly and leaves no snail trail behind.  Instead what you get is soft, smooth and very moisturised skin, so smooth to the touch it is as though you have just had a facial.  Designed to be used both in the morning and in an evening, I use it after being in the shower so my pores are open, allowing it to sink in much further to do its job.

I am a big fan of this serum and if it I good enough for the likes of  Katie Holmes, Louise Redknapp who looks amazing, as well as Ashley Roberts ex Pussycat Dolls who in 2013 shared the contents of her make-up causing sales of Snail Gel to rocket by 700%!  So if it is good enough for them, it is good enough for me and all for just £17.99.

If this sounds like something you would love to try, then Dr Organic have an entire range to entice you in and they include: their best seller, the gel, face cream, facial serum, eye serum and moisture mask and hand nail elixir and you can purchase the range from Holland & Barrett.

Have you tried anything from the Snail Gel Range?  Would you?

  4. I've been using the eye serum every morning for a few months now. It absorbs quickly without leaving a trail (no pun intended) and sits perfectly under my eye cream. As to its anti-ageing efficacy, I haven't really tested it in a controlled way. But my eyes are looking relatively wrinkle free right now, so I'll take that! Tx

  15. I've not heard of this but I think the snail slime might put me off, saying that if all the celebraties are trying it then it wouldn't hurt to see if it makes a difference. x

  19. Anything with the word placenta in it doesn't appeal at all, but I think this sounds great! I want to try the Dr Organic deodorant too xx

  20. How do they extract the snail mucus, and are any snails harmed in the process? Not sure I believe they're 'harvesting' snails to facilitate industrial production of skin cream... that would be a LOT of snails.

  21. i was actually more intrigued as to what this smelt like. lemongrass isn't what i had expected

    ReplyDelete
  22. oh i would love to try this .. my skin is dreadful so it needs help

  23. I really don't like the thought of snail mucus but I have to say you've made it sound really good!!

  24. My main concern would be how it was farmed but having read that the slime is humanely collected I wouldn't have any problems trying this out

    ReplyDelete

  26. really interesting! at first I wondered how they got it from the poor snails but glad to hear it's collected humanely! x
