TIAM SNAIL & AZULENE WATER
Who dosn't love a good snail product? Want to read about a great one?

I was really excited to try the TIAM Snail & Azulene Water Essence because I really love snail. It is my all-time favorite skincare ingredient. I had never tried the TIAM brand before so I thought this looked like an exciting product to review.
The two advertised ingredients for this water essence, snail and azulene, are part of this product to help moisturize and calm the skin. The snail in this product is 87% snail secretion filtrate. Snail secretion filtrate is basically the slime snails slide on to keep themselves moisturized and healthy. It is also antibacterial. Azulene is an ingredient extracted from chamomile and is known for its calming properties.

The first time I put this product on my hands I yelled: “Yaaaaas the snail is real!”. My poor boyfriend is used to me by now but I fear what the neighbors think. I had been worried that the snail that was part of the title, was only going to be a small part of the product. I love snail. When I began to use the product I could tell by the texture that snail was a large part of the construction of this product. The essence was clear and thicker than I am used to with almost no scent. It moisturized my skin and left it refreshed without a heavy, filmy feeling.
This is definitely a product I will be repurchasing in the future and I am now motivated to look into more of what TIAM has to offer!
