iUNIK Black Snail Restore Serum

iUNIK Black Snail Restore Serum

As I’ve mentioned in previous reviews I’m a big fan of the brand iUNIK. Their skincare is created with care for it’s ingredients, no fragrances and minimal irritants. As someone with skin that’s sensitive to fragrance it’s great to see brands considering sensitive skin types when creating their formulas. This iUNIK Black Snail Restore Serum piqued my interests as I’m still unsure of my stance on snail mucin in skincare.

iUNIK market this as an anti-aging serum enriched with 70% Black Snail Extract. It’s supposed to support the appearance of skin elasticity and natural cell regeneration. Skin ageing isn’t really a concern of mine however I’ve been using these serums for an added hydration boost which this should provide in spades.

How To

iUNIK has very simple instructions for how to use this serum. After facial cleansing or using toner, apply a proper amount to your face and gently pat for absorption.

That’s exactly how I’ve been using this serum. After cleansing it’s the first step in my routine and preps my skin nicely for everything else.

My Experience

I like adding a serum to my skincare routine during the drier Winter months to give my skin an extra boost of hydration. Before using this serum I’d been using the iUNIK Tea Tree Relief Serum. That was good for hydration but I didn’t see any significant changes to my skin.

This Black Snail Restore Serum has the same effect. It’s a good boost of hydration to my skin and a great prep for the rest of my routine. I don’t, however, see any great changes to my skin in terms of texture, oil control or acne. I wasn’t expecting to see results in those areas so that’s not been disappointing. This serum leaves my skin hydrated and plump but not much else.

One thing to note with this serum is due to the snail mucin it is a touch sticky. Nothing drastic however in comparison to other serums I’ve used I did notice the slight tackiness.

Overall this serum is hydrating and plumping but I didn’t see any big changes to my skin. I love the fragrance free formulas from this brand and was quite happy with the Centella Calming Gel Cream that I tried from them. If you’re someone with sensitive skin then I would recommend adding this brand to your memory bank.
