“Apply moisturizer to face using gentle upward strokes, making sure moisturizer absorbs into skin. If you think there is an excessive amount of moisturizer on the skin, blot with tissue.”
Review: Mon Amour Snail Hydrate Moisturizer

Hola, gorgeous! It’s the weekday after Valentine’s Day weekend and I hope you had a good day yesterday. I would love to share with you what I did if it was interesting at all, but all I really did was just work, for 12 hours straight and I had to cancel my plans yesterday. So, nope I won’t be
whining talking about that, instead let me share with you a new beauty product that I have been using for about a month plus.
Thanks to the awesome team at HiShop for sending the Mon Amour Snail Hydrate Moisturizer over for me to try. 🙂 Whenever I try on new beauty products, I’m really selective with the products that I use. This is mainly because (I mentioned this before), I have a very strict beauty regime with a whole set of products which works on my skin and I stick to them. But this time around, I decided to give this a try, because it uses snail mucin. I have previously used products which contained snail mucin, and from my experiences, those product with that works really well on my skin.
As the name of the product suggest, the Mon Amour Snail Hydrate Moisturizer is a daily moisturizer which hydrates and provides antioxidant protection while improving skin texture and tone, leaving it smooth and radiant. The packaging of the moisturizer is rather simple, with a jar-like concept. Open the top and you get to your moisturizer. No frills and straight to the point. The product comes in 50ml which is rather huge, and would most definitely, last me for a couple of months plus.
Once I opened the top of the product, I didn’t expect to see another cover over it. I’m quite surprised that they had a second lid, which I suppose is to prevent the product from getting contaminated since it is made from 100% natural ingredients. What I found about the product, based on the first impression was that it has a rather thick jelly-like consistency.
From the picture above you can see, just how thick and rich the product is. The thing about moisturizer which I am afraid of is usually the sticky, oily ones which is why my daily moisturizer is a water gel based one. When I first applied the product, I found it to be thick and putting too much made my skin shine, like it appears oily. That is when I decided to read the how-to instructions and found this;
Ahh. So, that explains why. So, please always do remember to read the instructions before using any products at all. After I realised that I was having too much on my face, I used lesser product on my face upon application. When I did that, I realised that my skin absorbed the product faster and it didn’t leave my skin oily, which was pretty amazing since I’m pretty particular about that.
Like any other moisturizer, application of this is just the same. I used my third finger to apply this to my skin, in upward motion with gentle strokes. I would continue doing this slowly, to ensure that the products is absorbed by my skin.

So, now that I have talked all about the product – in terms of the packaging and the application of it. I’ll move on now to how the product is after using it for approximately one month. To be honest, one month is a rather short period and it could take longer time to see the results of the usage of the product. The product is said to improves skin radiance and gently exfoliates, revealing smoother, healthier looking skin and texture.
The past month have been one hectic month and to be honest, I haven’t had time to take care of my skin. I have pretty much neglected it and only stuck on to my basic daily regime. I also had really late nights and my eye bags have been increasingly prominent, with more pimples popping all over. But despite this all, I would say that my condition of my skin was really good. There are still the occasional pimples which could be due to hormones + late nights, but otherwise my skin had been rather smooth and clear. I noticed that I don’t look as haggard as I should be with the lack of sleep.
All this changes were things that I could notice and it wasn’t that difficult to notice these changes. As I look into mirror daily, I could see these changes and although it wasn’t a drastic one but it shows that the product is working for my skin. That is pretty much amazing, I would say.
Here’s a picture I have of myself after using the product without any make up on at all. This is pretty much my “I just woke up and showered” face, you can see the tiny pimples on my face too but aside from that I would say that my skin is pretty clear and smooth.
Once again, thanks to HiShop for sending this amazing product over which have effectively replaced my previous moisturizer!
