My CAIIB Exams just got over and I can’t believe that I have cleared it in my first attempt. I am feeling happy and relaxed now. I have almost recovered from my injury and I am able to walk now. I am going back to office from tomorrow after a long break of one month.
You would have a lot of hype about the snail based products. Many of friends use it and in their views it works wonders in scar, pimple reduction and improving the complexion. If you are a person wondering if it’s worth the amount you pay and does these products really live up to the claims, then this post is for you.
Until a month ago, I knew about regular serums but snail extract based one was a bit new to me.The only snail based product that I have used so far is the Elisha Coy Skin Repairing Snail Cream which is reviewed by me here.
Let us see if snail based cosmetics has any special efficacy. Trust me I was a bit skeptical in the beginning.
In this post, I will be talking about Reelle France Snail Extract Serum which I have been using for a month now.
Reelle France is a brand that claim to harness the power of snails for using its extract in cosmetics.
**About the Brand:
RÉELLE is a French cosmetic brand that is specialized in skin care made with high percentage of snail extract and natural ingredients. A first of its kind!
RÉELLE which means REAL in the feminine tense in the French language. This is the whole concept of the Brand and what the founders Mr. Arnaud Decroix and Mr. Luc Champeyroux wanted to create; A skin care brand that is really about your skin with the incredible benefits of nature. This Project has started more than 5 years ago. Just a like snail, the founders have taken the time to do things right, taking in consideration all the best things that your skin deserves.
The fact is that snails and humans share many of the same skin elements. The balance between collagen and elastin in the skin of snails is almost the same to that of humans. When snails face hardship, they naturally produce a serum that is packed with antioxidants, anti-inflammatory, immune modulators, proteins, co-enzymes, and cell-communicating ingredients. This is the principle ingredient in our snail creams which also contains high levels of glycolic acid and allantoin. Snails never have skin infections or inflammations. A snail can take its sweet old time to slide across the sharpest knife or piece of broken glass and not cut its skin. Snails never have any issues with the balance between their collagen or elastin components because of their ability to biologically produce the only solution in the world solely made for the objective of renewing skin and keeping it healthy. Snail Extract is the Miracle Skin Care Solution Found in all of our products.
What also separates us from others the natural process of getting the mucus out of the snail without damaging or hurting them. The special Bio food diet that they have (from the Royal Project in Thailand) including aloe Vera and purified water by both carbon and osmosis filters allow us to have a very high quality and a more efficient 100% pure uncut prime raw material. We know for a fact that we are the only ones to make this standard of the snail extract and are working on the first ever 100% natural with snail extract product.

My Take on the Product:
The product comes in a very cute tiny thick glass bottle. The bottle is brown in colour and the cap is golden with white filler. I love the packaging. Never seen such cute packaging before. The filler is really handy and since the bottle is tiny it is travel friendly. The cap shuts tightly and absolutely no chances for leakage. The glass is very thick and it won’t get subjected to breakage easily until you drop it. From the packaging itself, you can guess that the product is PURE LUXURY!!
The product comes with a medicine-dropper applicator to dispense just the tiny amount you need and this particular dropper feature is very handy and hygienic.
The serum is off dirty white in tint and it is a thick fluid which flows slowly. The serum goes light on face and doesn’t feel heavy at all. The serum contains highly concentrated active ingredients and you must use it only once per day. If you think “the more you apply, more benefits your skin will get” then it will become a disaster.
The serum has minimal to no fragrance. The smell is negligible. The serum has got no unpleasant smell. The serum has gel like texture and consistency of a fluid.
The serum gets absorbed into skin quickly. I prefer to apply this at night so that my skin is safe from UV rays of the sun. The serum gives somewhat oily sticky feel which disappears in about 30 minutes. I think it gives such a feel when you use more than required quantity of product. If you use a drop and spread it on your face properly, it will go non greasy leaving no residue. It is best for use at night. I leave it overnight and wakeup with a healthy skin in the morning.
The serum hydrates my skin. After one month of use, I can say that the serum gives remarkable results. I have super oily sensitive acne prone skin. My skin texture has improved. My skin has become clearer and brighter. My face has got that “even tone”. There is reduction in scars and appearance of acne.
The serum didn’t give me any irritations or redness.
Since I am just 22, I can’t comment about its anti-aging properties. My skin feels smooth, soft and better.
You might feel the price tag is a bit heavy, but considering the ingredients and its claims, I personally feel it’s worth it.
Also a little goes a long way. A bottle will last more than three months.
- Awesome Packaging
- True to its claims
- Minimal Fragrance and no stinky unpleasant smell
- Makes skin soft, clearer and brighter on regular use
- No irritations
- Natural active Ingredients
- Handy Applicator
- Absorbs into skin easily
- Light weighted when you apply
- Doesn’t reduce pores nor does it claim so.
- Gives a sticky feel if you over apply
- Expensive but totally worth the price tag
- It is highly concentrated that you must use only once per day ( Don’t get addicted :P)
- Don’t drop the bottle or applicator. It might break
Recommendation: Works like a charm for my oily sensitive skin. Dry skinned beauties may use it by layering it beneath a moisturiser. I highly recommend this serum. It delivers what it promises.
Final Word: If you are looking for a good serum or a product with anti-aging or healing properties, I suggest you to try this one. It gives your skin hydration and at the same time penetrates deep into your skin and gives it required nutrients like anti-oxidants, retinols etc. It will help you to repair the skin.
If you are a person with pigmentation, acne scars, wrinkles then this will definitely address your skin issues.
