Well, a few samples were sent into work this week. Perhaps unsurprisingly everyone in the office (bar me - always taking one for the team) seemed pretty unenthusiastic about trying these out - so off I went, armed with three 'Escargot extract' creams - one for anti-ageing, one for night, and one for everyday dry skin. Whilst I'm more than willing to try putting snail goo on my face for the sake of beauty, I don't imagine that I'll get much use from it before I feel completely disgusted, so I gave (and probably repulsed) my mum and my boyfriend's mum the anti-ageing and night creams. I expected it to smell a bit funny; I don't think it did smell funny, I think it smelt like a normal moisturiser, but I convinced myself it smelled of snail sweat and thus felt a bit icky whilst I was wearing it!

I didn't catch the exact brand of this, but I know there are quite a few and I'm guessing they are quite expensive. My verdict? A bit gross, and probably not worth the hype, or money.
Have you tried snail cream, or any other bizarre beauty creams?
