Snail Slime Skin Care

Rejoice! Now You Can Coat Your Face With Snail Slime

In a move that seems lifted straight from Harry Potter, a Chilean skincare brand hopes to entice you with its line of snail creams. Arenscaracol touts itself as "the most complete line of snail slime extract." (Don't you just hate it when your skincare regimen is lacking in snail slime?) The line offers face and body creams that promise to improve skin strength, repair damaged tissue, and create a smoother complexion. While snail slime certainly isn't the grossest ingredient you'll find in cosmetics, I can't say its inclusion entices me to try these products. Plus, think of the poor snails! It's not as though they can escape quickly if their slime is being harvested. Would you try (or have you tried) anything from Arenscaracol?

Oh wow, thanks for the mini-review, Anonymous! I didn't know there were hair products as well. So much snail, so little time.

Even looking at the snail in the picture is making me a bit sick.

How do they collect the slime? I find it nasty though. Wonder if the name "arenscaracol" translates to snails.
