Beauty Must-Have of the Month: Celltone Snail Extract Gel
20 February 2017
It's month 2 of my "Beauty Must-Haves" (read all about my favourite from last month here) and we are still on the topic of skin care!
Most of you know by now that I have blemish-prone skin that's also super sensitive to new products. I have some blemishes and scars caused by acne and although my skin is much better now, I'm still working towards having perfect, glowing, blemish-free skin.
Celltone recently spoilt me with a great selection of their skincare goodies (everything from the Spot Control Cleanser to the Intensive Spot Control Serum and Spot Blitzer) but the product I was most excited to try had to be the Snail Extract Gel.
I know this Snail Extract Gel has been around for quite some time, but recently some of my friends with acne-prone skin swears by it for the scarring and I couldn't wait to see if this product actually works!
Let's start with the basics:
The Snail Extract Gel comes beautifully packaged in a very stylish box (a great upgrade from the Snail Gel I use to see on TV when I was younger!) The actual product is in a simple, sleek jar and travels wonderfully (I go EVERYWHERE with it!)
It's called a "Snail Extract Gel" and that's exactly what this is. A almost clear gel with a very pleasant smell that can get a bit sticky if you apply it too thick.
How did it work for me?
I tend to be reluctant to use new products on my skin so I did a little test patch on my cheek and turns out my skin doesn't hate it! I started using the Snail Extract Gel on my cheeks (where I have the most acne scarring) and eventually I loved using it under my eyes - the dark circles became much lighter and even my husband noticed that!
After using this for a month I can definitely see a difference in my acne scarring and I can now wear only concealer or a BB cream to cover it up - an amazing step up from wearing full coverage makeup to something like the gym because of my skin insecurities. I'm so brave I even took a "no makeup selfie" to show you how much better my skin looks! Okay so it's not totally makeup free - I'm wearing mascara and under-eye concealer (don't judge me...)
