Smell

It contains no added fragrance or any active ingredients that have much of a distinctive smell. The result of this is a snail gel with little to no detectable scent

Texture

This product is indeed a gel and not a gel cream. It’s thick, transparent and quickly absorbed by the skin once applied, provided it’s not put on too heavily. It’s also perfect as a sleeping mask

Moisture

This cream is reasonably moisturising, however if you suffer from skin that’s particularly dry or oily you may want to use it alongside additional moisturising products, apply the bb cream after first applying these other moisturisers

Directions

Apply a small amount of the cream after cleansing, spreading it evenly across the face and neck then gently rubbing it in to the skin until it’s absorbed and fully blended with your own skin tone. Mizon recommend using this cream as the final step in your daily beauty routine, after applying any other moisturisers that you use
