Secret Key Snail + EGF Repairing Essence | Product Review

Right, I am liking Secret Key Snail line a little too much? I have been using the Secret Key + EGF repairing cream and toner for a while now, and I have just ordered the refill. (See, it ships from South Korea and can take up to 3 weeks to reach Singapore at times, and I am left with slightly more than half a jar of cream and toner. Better be early than late, yes?)

I like the products very much, but I still have dry patches at the side of the cheeks, so I want to treat it with the essence.


Secret Key Snail + EGF Repairing Essence 50ml

Acne; scars; lifeless skin; who hate stickiness and shiny patches; dry skin; skin that is losing its elasticity; sensitive skin


Snail Slime Extract together with EGF (Cell Regeneration Factor), its main funtion is to act as a skin stain remover, healing and repairing wounds and scars. It also boosts your skin’s ability to stay hydrated and bright.

Apply appropriate amount of essence and smooth gently over skin to impregnate and absorb.

[The Missy’s Say]

Application: Wash and dry face -> snail toner -> snail essence -> snail cream -> Hera sunmate daily -> MD formulations eye cream

Scent: Very faint scent of soap-like smell, but disappear once the essence is absorbed

Texture: Gel-like consistency, sticky at first, but absorbs amazingly quickly leaving no traces of stickiness

Effects: I have only used a few times now, so there is no prominent result yet, but I am quite confident in Secret Key’s snail line. I have used many essence before, some leaving a sticky after-application touch, and that made me very uncomfortable.

(Philosophy’s Miracle Worker anti-aging concentrate is one of my favorite pre-moisturizer essences, it leaves a smooth and velvety feel after application, and improves the skin texture quite nicely)

I noticed though, that even after just 2 uses of Secret Key snail essence, the dry patches on my cheeks are better hydrated., but doesn’t make the skin more oily.

I ordered through here:

Along with the reorder of the cream and toner, I ordered the Secret Key Snail BB cream too, it was on a super sale that day at S$9.90, so I grabbed!

I am also interested to try their treatment essence, but I need to justify that thought for a bit. The pitera treatment essence is similar to SKII pitera essence, and I remembered my skin didn’t take it so well after half a bottle.
