Costco isn't just for bulk batteries and frozen foods anymore. Turns out the warehouse store has a pretty robust cosmetics counter (especially for members!). Eagle-eyed Redditors have discovered that Costco now sells Korean beauty products in bulk. This news will especially excite anyone who has ever wanted to try a buzzy snail cream product but suffered from department store sticker shock.
You can now buy a two-jar set of Mizon All-in-One Snail Repair Cream ($30) at Costco. The Peach and Lily-approved product uses 92 percent snail extract to hydrate skin and protect against acne, redness, and scarring. If you have dryer skin, you should apply moisturizer right after this product. The gel-like cream is lightweight and unscented, so you won't have to risk smelling like mollusk goo for a good complexion.
Since snail mucin contains hyaluronic acid, glycoprotein enzymes, and antimicrobial peptides, this product works wonders as both an all-over face cream and acne spot treatment. That means you'll keep reaching for this versatile product to solve many of your skincare woes — so good thing Costco's made it available in bulk!
Snail goo is harvested in a few different ways, but they're all humane and nonfatal. Though the methods differ, every process involves letting the critters crawl around and naturally excrete their mucin.
To recap: the snails are unharmed and you get a clear face. The only thing better than that win-win is reaping its rewards at half price.
