Dr. Organic Snail Gel Facial Serum

4 June 2015

Yes, snail gel. Like me I'm sure you've heard lots of stories about snail gel facials etc but never thought it would be something you'd opt for or even have the chance to experience. I mean snail secretion doesn't exactly scream beauty, luxury or pampering!

Lucky for us Dr. Organic have a range of snail gel products that can tempt even the most squeamish! Packaged in stylish glass bottles and blended with bioactive organic ingredients they sure don't look like the slime you'd imagine! 
Snail gel is actually not as gross as it sounds, its the natural secretions of Helix Aspersia Muller which is high in Collagen, Elastin, Glycolic acid and complex proteins that is used by the snails to repair their cells. So it can have the same effect on our skin cells!

I've been using this Dr. Organic Snail Gel Facial Serum* for quite a while now and it's become my absolute staple! I'll be honest, Ive never been that great at moisturising my face regularly, I always dip in and out of using moisturisers in cream formulas and mostly oils but never made it routine. Serums weren't really something I experimented with either but now I'm always reaching for it!

The formula is a very light and thin serum, very smooth and easy to apply, not a hint of gooey sticky slime in sight! I don't find it heavy and thick like a cream, neither is it greasy like an oil. It's a dream to apply and sinks in so quickly!
Like anything you apply to your skin there is an initial tackiness to the skin but this disappears very quickly ready to apply moisturiser straight after. At night it suggests using this after moisturiser but most of the time I feel that this serum is enough to hydrate my skin through the night on its own.

My skin literally drinks this in and it makes it so soft. I stopped using this serum this past week as I was trying to get through my sample stash and I can already see my dry patches coming back! 

I've heard a lot of people including my boyfriend and one of my best mates (who's also tried this serum out) say how much they hate the smell. It is very strong, lemongrass and citrus and something else I can't quite put my finger on, but I love love love the smell. For me it's part of the joy of using it, it's so fresh and vibrant and is a real pick me up in the morning!

If you look closely you can see by the light through the bottle in the pictures that I'm a good third of the way through this serum and i'm pretty sure I'll make this a repurchase! I have got other products from the range but so far this one has hit the right mark for me.


  1. still hate the smell haha! However, you make me want to use it again as it is a lovely product! I also love how the green leaf on the logo compliments the greenery in the background, nice work ;) xoxoxoxox

  2. loved you review, never tried this line of dr. organic.
