WTF Beauty: Snail Cream?!

How do you feel about face masks, creams, lotions...made with "SNAIL SECRETION" (aka snail slime)

Snail secretion was the hot ingredient for beauty products for Korea in 2015 and it apparently is AMAZING for keeping your skin looking moist and youthful.

The only catch is - YOU'RE PUTTING SNAIL SLIME ON YOUR FACE!

Snail secretion is meant to help to collagen in your skin and to increase elasticity. So basically, no more wrinkles and saggy skin!
The practice has actually been around for decades everywhere from Chile to Paris but for some reason it BOOMED in Korea, and as a result, Asia, in 2015.

Now let's talk about the slime:

According to the owners of MISSHA, "the snails, the same kind that can be found on menus in French restaurants, are fed red ginseng while being raised in Korea in order to ensure quality slime."
You're not getting pure, fresh snail slime (...yay?) but rather a solution made from 20-70% snail secretion. That is, unless you want a snail facial where you literally have snail slide all over your face for an hour or two.
Reviews have actually said this isn't a hoax, and that it has done wonders for women with acne or sensitive skin in general.

Check out this review below:

Celebs like Changmin, Nichkun, and Goo Hara have endorsed it!

So, would you be up for the creams and masks?

What about the snail facial!?
