Mizon Snail Eye Cream Review


UPDATE (02 Apr 2016) – I reviewed Mizon’s Black Snail Cream on my other blog. Have a look!

Korean skin care products are agreeing with my hypersensitive skin better. My newest korean skin care is Mizon Snail Repair Eye Cream, to replace the Lancome Youth Activating Eye Concentrate.

The Lancome eye concentrate worked well for me for a while, but it is also causing the delicate – and crazy sensitive – skin around my eye area to overreact. I experience frequent eye infections when using the Lancome eye concentrate. So, here I am, with another snail product!

[The Missy’s Say]

Thick consistency, but absorbs very quickly.

After touch:
A slight tackiness immediately after application; but once absorbed, it leaves no stickiness.

Unscented – like any unscented cream, it smells a little ‘plasticky’, but it goes away within seconds. It doesn’t bother me at all, I am only taking a sniff for the sake of this review.


  • Hydration– Hydrating to tired eyes – without eye cream, the skin around eyes feels ‘stretched’.
  • Wrinkles and lines – I don’t know if it helps with wrinkles, I don’t have deep wrinkles, but am developing fine lines. However, because they are not prominent, I can’t say if there is any noticeable effect on that department.
  • Dark circle – I don’t have concern with that too, I might have faint shadows under the eye, but not prominent enough to notice improvements.
  • Sensitive eyes – First off, I didn’t know it helps with that when purchasing! It really relieves my eyes from overreaction – I am allergic to some substances, and one of them is commonly used in skin care and cosmetic, so I suspect that although the Lancome eye concentrate works great with most people, it doesn’t agree with my skin allergies.

Seriously, I have never paid for anything lower than S$45 for eye cream – I stand corrected, I bought a small tube of Garnier eye cream from the pharmacy when I was hospitalized for acute colitis for less than S$20 – and they usually come in very small jar. I paid S$14.90 (after offsetting with discount) for the Mizon Snail Eye Cream that comes in a generous 25ml jar. (The Lancome eye cream costs around S$60 for 15ml jar)

1. Since it comes in such a big jar, I suggest transferring the content to a smaller jar, and store the big jar in the fridge. That way, you are only exposing the smaller jar to environmental germs etc, but  since it finishes up quicker, you always get fresher cream.

2. I usually also apply the eye cream on the smile line and around lips. The skin around the lips and eyes are similar when it comes to sensitivity and delicateness. The skin around those areas is thinner, therefore it is more sensitive. (Now you know why most eye products are ‘independent’ and specialized products, because the other products for the face are too harsh for the delicate skin around eyes.)

    1. Hey Jen,

      Unfortunately, I haven’t been the best candidate to attest to the effects on dark circles or deep lines. I don’t usually have dark circles – mine may form only during stressful period and lack of sleep, but you should know that if the problem of dark circles is genetic, then no cream can really help – it goes away after my regular routine of sleep and rest is reinstated.

      As for wrinkles, I don’t have deep wrinkles, but I am beginning to see fine creases on the lids after I moved to Perth, Australia. I am still using the Mizon snail eye cream (and face cream) because it has been the most effectively hydrating eye cream thus far.

      As for the collagen eye cream, I believe I have tried, I didn’t like it. I remember it’s a tad sticky. I prefer the mizon snail eye cream. When I just moved to Perth, my skin was acclimatising, so it felt a little dryer around my eyes, so I alternate the snail eye cream with additional jojoba oil over it at night to ease the dryness.
