Hello, gorgeous!

These summer months I seem to be the busiest I’ve ever been in my whole life. And I am so incredibly happy to be back blogging full-time! I have so much to share with you but first of all I’d love to talk about an amazing face cream I’ve discovered sometime ago – meet Holika Holika Prime Youth Black Snail Repair Cream!

I am all about firm and glowing skin and regardless of my young age I still enjoy quite heavy-duty face creams as my skin is currently in-between oily and dry and is somehow not combination as I experienced it to be this spring. Summer sun makes my skin produce way more oils than usual while at the same time my skin gets dehydrated very quickly if it is not taken care of properly.

Holika Holika Prime Youth Black Snail Repair Cream ($108.00) – Premium Cream infused with Black Snail slime to revitalize and replensih your skin for a youthful glow. Black snail mucin restores and protects your skin from environmental damage and UV rays. Giant snail and black pearl ingredient prevents aging with moisture effect. Contains 10 times more snail extract with rich nutrition.

What a description! That sounds promising and it actually is one of the best face creams I’ve come across so far. I’ve tried about four to five face creams that listed snail mucin as a main ingredient and totally am a convert now. To my mind, snail slime is something unique and is a discovery of the whole Korean skin care beauty industry.

The face cream in question comes in a beautiful and luxurious packaging. Although the jar is made of plastic it imitates a heavy glass cube with a golden cap. I would definitely prefer a plastic packaging to glass due to practical reasons and it looks good anyway. It also comes with a golden spatula to prevent contamination of the product and to prevent your skin from breaking out because of bacteria.

The amount of product you get is 50 ml and it lasted me for full 4 months. This cream has a very delicate, slightly perfume scent that I personally like and I think is not disturbing at all. The consistency is gelish though it definitely is a cream. It glides on the skin easily and absorbs almost instantly. The best part of it that this cream does not leave an oil film on my skin! My skin feels soft and supple, re-freshed and hydrated after using it. The effect lasts for the whole day that minimizes the need to use heavier moisturizing products throughout the day. It makes my skin firmer without making it feel tight. Moreover, it feels like nothing at all on the skin that I find especially great!

Holika Holika Prime Youth Black Snail Repair Cream is and amazing product, overall. I would recommend it for both young and mature skin as it works wonders on both – my mother is also very happy about it. If you like lightweight textures that absorb instantly and do really enhance and refine your skinthis is a cream to try.

Thank you very much for your attention.

Have an amazing day!

Hugs and kisses,

    1. Hahaha 😀 I had exactly the same idea when I first saw this cream! It had to be black! 😀 😀 😀 Yes, Holika Holika does have a more expensive range of products (mainly anti-age) that partly explains such a price tag
