I had recently reviewed a snail repair face cream by Mizon and gave it a good rating because I enjoyed using it. I bought the face wash from the same range and was excited to try it out as well. I enjoy using skincare products by Mizon and they usually receive good reviews from me. I have tried several foam cleansers by other Korean brands and have liked some and have repurchased, but some have failed to impress me. I like the “Snail Repair” range from Mizon, and this Mizon Snail Repairing Foam Cleanser belongs to that range. Read on to know how it fared for me.
A travel-friendly foaming cleanser that deep cleans but with a gentle, skin rejuvenating formula. Snail secretion filtrate is rich in protein and glycolic acid to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles while helping to boost skin’s firmness and elasticity. The sticky, stringy texture gets into all the nooks and crannies of your face to pick up any and all dirt that might be hiding from your eyebrow hairs to the creases by your nose.
My Experience with Mizon Snail Repairing Foam Cleanser:
The product comes in a glossy-tube packaging – it can stand upright in my bathroom skincare cabinet. The size of the tube is 60 ml and has a flip cap to dispense the product out when the tube is squeezed. The product is dispensed in foam form which lathers up when mixed with water.
Most Korean products don’t have description or product details on the tube or on the website, but the ones from Mizon do offer some brief description on their American website and on websites. The ingredient list is also available in detail. This product claims to contain snail filtrate which helps to treat skin and has potent healing properties. It also contains exfoliating papaya extract and antioxidant-rich green tea which ensures that skin doesn’t feel stripped of moisture after cleansing.
I use this face wash as a second-step cleanser and use it after oil cleansing. I do like this cleanser, but I do not recommend it to those who use face wash to remove their makeup instead of using a good makeup remover. It cleans a makeup-free face well but does not remove makeup well or leave face squeaky clean as I desire from a face wash. I have experienced same issue with all foam type of facial cleansers, they do not give you al cleaning feeling after cleansing.
This product has no fragrance, it lathers well, a small amount is sufficient for face and neck. It does not dry out skin and contains snail extract. However, it does not remove face makeup and can only be used on a makeup-free face and also does not give a fresh, clean feeling to face. I didn’t find anything proprietary about this product and will not repurchase it.

- Does not make skin dry or uncomfortably stretchy.

Cons of Mizon Snail Repairing Foam Cleanser:
- Availability can be an issue for some, but some Korean websites do ship to India as well .
- Not good for removing makeup, can be used only after a cleansing oil to remove makeup.
- Does not give a squeaky clean feeling to the skin.
