Corix Black Snail Collagen Cream Product Review

Table of Contents

I’m back to review another Korean beauty item that I’ve been in love with. This week it’s all about Black Snail Collagen Cream by Coxir. It’s an anti-wrinkle and nourish cream containing snail, collagen and black bean. This has been interesting since Corix products have trended on TikTok for the past month but I’ve posted about them for the last decade with this blog post being from 3 years ago. But hey, if it helps people learn about good skin then I’m all in.

What is Black Snail Collagen Cream?

Corix Black Snail Collagen Cream is a Korean skincare product that is designed to hydrate, repair, and firm the skin.

Key Ingredients: Snail Mucin: helps protect skin from moisture loss and blemishes – Black Beans: rejuvenates and nourishes skin – Collagen: diminishes fine lines and helps firming and lifting.

It is known to contain a number of beneficial ingredients for the skin, including hyaluronic acid, glycolic acid, and allantoin. These ingredients can help to hydrate the skin, improve elasticity, and reduce wrinkles.

It helps to give the skin its structure and elasticity. As we age, our collagen production naturally decreases. This can lead to wrinkles and sagging skin.

What is snail mucin?

Black snail extract is often used in skincare due to its potential benefits for moisturizing, repairing skin damage, and improving elasticity.

It’s produced by harvesting snail slime while moving. It’s normally produced when snails are in a good environment but unfortunately the method on which it’s harvested depends of the company (so not all are ethical.)

The snail secretion after it’s collected and purified then contains a type of carbohydrate that helps your skin retain its moisture. That same carbohydrate (glycosaminoglycan) is also found in Hyaluronic Acid.

What skin types are best suited for this cream?

Corix Black Snail Collagen Cream is said to be suitable for all skin types but if you have oily skin, you may want to use this cream at night only. For normal skin types, use at the last stage of your skincare routine, applying a moderate amount of product to your skin then gently patting for better absorption.

Why are black beans used?

Dubbed “the beauty bean” throughout Asia, black bean oil is naturally rich in antioxidants and helps brighten up and refreshen the complexion and aids in the production of red blood cells.

Black rice extract is a type of antioxidant that can help to protect the skin from damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules that can damage the skin cells.

Should you try Corix Black Snail Collagen Cream?

Now that we understand snail mucin more, the slimey-ness of the product shouldn’t be too off putting. I’ve tried the other snail products from Coxir over the years and was very pleased but this by far is my favorite.

I’ve been using this for a few weeks now and I’ve definitely seen a difference. After cleansing and a face sheet mask I apply a small amount on my face and neck. It gives a glowing, glassy look resulting in a supple feel. It’s definitely a product I’ve added to my daily routine.
