If you've never heard of snail slime in skincare, allow us to introduce you to the game-changing ingredient. Also referred to as snail mucin, the additive is hailed as an effective solution for a hoard of skin concerns, from age lines to inflammation to dull skin. While such a transformative ingredient sounds pricey, it's actually quite the opposite. Just look to the Mizon Multi Function Formula Snail Repair Eye Cream—shoppers say it performs "magic" on their under-eyes for only $14 per jar.
With an increasing amount of glowing reviews, the anti-aging eye cream just may be one of Amazon's best kept skincare secrets. Shoppers can't stop repurchasing the treatment out of fear they'll run out, while others claim it's the first "holy grail" product they've ever truly discovered.

"This cream has transformed my face," wrote one reviewer. "I've been using it with the serum from Mizon for like a month now, and the two of these are the most incredible products I've ever had. I haven't had dark circles, while lines, acne, and scars have gone away. This stuff is magical. I have a combination of dry and oily skin, and it has magically become dewy and poreless."
In addition to snail mucin, the dermatologist-tested eye cream features other top-notch ingredients. Niacinamide tackles dark shadows and uneven skin tone, while adenosine and peptides smooth over fine lines and lift sagging skin. You can also expect the cream to greatly reduce dryness and puffiness around the eyes, according to reviewers.
"Within the first week of using this eye cream, I am hooked," said another shopper. "It has made the area around my eyes brighter, and it looks like I got a mini facelift. I have tried other eye creams and always give up at around the two-week mark because I've never seen a difference. I definitely will be buying this again."
The formula is free of parabens, artificial colors, and fragrances, which shoppers with sensitive skin say is a major benefit—no irritation or negative reactions here. Plus, it offers a lightweight, fast-absorbing feel that boosts hydration under the eyes tenfold.
