Review: SECRET KEY SNAIL+EGF Repairing Gel Cream

Yo girls, I'm back with another skincare review :) Well, actually I feel reluctant to make a review of Sectret Key SNAIL + EGF repairing gel cream because I even stopped using it (switched back to my second jar of MIZON snail repair cream). But I got lots of request from lovelies from facebook group, so yeah... here goes:

About the product:
Just another SNAIL repairing cream that's being hyped up lately. Everybody's talking about Secret Key right after I made my first purchase and I initially thought  my skin will like this gel cream, cuz it's oil-free and contain snail mucus. Another ingredients that I like is BETA GLUCAN, I've been using skincare products with Beta Glucan as the main ingredients for more than 5 years already and I like it. (fyi, Mizon snail cream also has B-Glucan in it). And about EGF, EGF stands for Epidermal Growth Factor. Basically, this EGF is a growth factor that stimulates cell growth, and this EGF also stimulating our Stem Cell to grow even more and replace others broken cell or tissue on our skins.

Read my favorite STEMCELLO EGF Vitamin C serum HERE.

First off, I had high hopes for this gel cream, really :( but all in all this is just a so-so product for me, though I've read so many good review about this cream out there. Sadly my skin doesn't seem to like it. It doesn't give significant result like MIZON all in one snail repair cream did. And to be frank, it doesn't give any result at all. I purchased this cream early in January and I stopped using it after two months.

Sounds like I really hate this product, eh? lmao. actually no, the fact is, I've tried another snail cream that works in a MUCH BETTER WAY than this (you know what product I rave about, yes it's mizon!^-^). The first thing I hate about SECRET KEY repairing gel cream is the SMELL! Yuck! It's so perfumey. I immediately smell its annoying strong floralish scent on a moment I open the inner lid. and I was like " ewwww.... I don't need parfume in my skincare product!"

Second, and just like I've said, I didn't see any result. But I can't really blame this poor gel cream all over because, you know, my skin was in its worst condition back in January. Lots of blemishes, scars, and pigmentation. Urghhh. (though, my skin has improved quite a bit now).

On the brighter side~~~ well, I do have few things that I like from SECRET KEY SNAIL+EGF Repairing Gel Cream. lesse... I LOVE its gel consistency! It's oil-free and doesn't leave any sticky feeling on my skin. It moisturizes quite well and I find that my skin has become less oilier too.

I've read somewhere on naver that this could also be used as a sleeping mask due to its gel consistency. I've never tried that before but I think it will do the job better that way, perhaps? But heck I won't stand the flowery smell it haz >.< so I definitely won't try it.

About the packaging, I don't mind jarred skincare products, I actually like it. I can use up all the product til the last drop, yay! I always disinfect my fingers thoroughly before I dare to touch my face. If you hate to dip your fingers in, just buy a spatula because it doesn't come together with the spatula.

Anyhow, though I said that this gel cream doesn't work on my acne-prone skin. Surprisingly, a friend of mine told me that this gel works nicely and improved her troubled skin a lot! Good to hear that~

Remember that result can be different from person to person, and this review is based on my personal experience.

Will I repurchase? Definitely no. I will stick to MIZON snail cream for the time being :)


Hope you find these reviews helpful, and see you next post! Au Revoir! ♥ .
