Hello new skin: Marvellous Marvel Gel & Sumptuous Snail Cream & Repair Mask Review

As a mum, there is nothing worse than looking in the mirror and seeing tired skin which looks in desperate need of some TLC. But TLC is something we as mums have time for not. So how are we supposed to wage war against the unavoidable slow down experienced in our skin? You long for your pregnancy glow as your collagen and elastin weakens, and you succumb to an overall duller look.

But no! It doesn’t have to be this way…and I’m about to share with you three awesome skin products from Asia, where skin quality is king. Even if you’re a tired mum.

Green Tea Exfoliating Marvel Gel by Ginerva

Holy moly, if ever there was a product that was going to banish your skin instantly of all those horrible old skin cells clogging up your visage then this is it!

Ginerva Marvel Gel

Ginvera Green Tea Exfoliating Marvel Gel works by specifically targeting the cornified skin layer, dissolving and removing the dead skin cells on the top most epidermis layer.

And if you, like me, suffer from pesky engrained blackheads which seems to have settled to roost for a lifetime, you will be delighted to hear that it also takes gentle yet effective exfoliating action against blackheads thoroughly and painlessly and helps remove deep layers of dead skin.

The results are undeniable. On looking back at myself in the mirror, it literally looks like I have new skin – which I have, because the  dead skin barrier is removed, and the new skin is now shining through in all its glory – behold the radiance! And as for how it feels, most definitely as soft and plump as a baby’s bottom. Double thumbs up!

Extra brownie points for the fact that it’s super easy to use – you simply dot some on your dry face with dry fingers, massage for about one minute, and literally see the dead skin cells come off. Proof is most definitely in the pudding!

Bio-Energy Snail Repair & Smooth Cream by Bio-Essence

Okay I know what you’re thinking here – snail repair? But seriously, unless you have been living under a rock of late you will know snail secretion is where it’s at on the beauty front right now. Now of course, we are not all going to start rooting around in our gardens collecting snail slime to slather all over our faces but thankfully we now have at our disposal some incredible products which harness the power of snail secretion which is not only packed with proteins, peptides, anti-inflammatories and antioxidants, all superheroes when it comes to skin renewal and regeneration.  Yes word on the street is that snail skin is very similar to human skin and rocking that knowledge is Bio-Essence’s Snail Repair & Smooth Cream


This is a fantastically luxurious and gorgeous smelling cream, with no sliminess in sight! I have been using it daily since I got my hands on it and not only does it leave your skin feeling smooth like satin and utterly hydrated, but my skin also feels plumper and has a finer texture thanks to its collagen enhancing properties. Quite honestly, I can’t remember the last time my skin felt or looked this good it was that long ago..probably when I was 20!

Bio-Energy Snail Secretion Repair Mask by Bio-Essence 

And now for the mack daddy of skincare. If you want to blow things totally out of the water, then to complement the above, which I strongly recommend you use both add to your bathroom cabinet, you need a whizz bang face saver – otherwise known as the Bio-Energy Snail Secretion Mask. After leaving the mask on for 15-20 mins for skin to fully absorb nutrients and then massaging the remaining essence in circular motions for full absorption, behold! Your new face!


If ever there was a beauty product to give you skin the va-va-voom it so badly needs, this is it. We’re talking serious renewal and rejuvenation, reduced fine lines and wrinkles, uber refined skin and a skin so supple you could trampoline off it.

Bio-Energy Snail Secretion Repair Mask £3.50 (single use). Buy it here. 

Overall I’m really impressed with all three products, and also love the fact that not only are they a powerhouse of beauty treatments, but are also reasonable in price point too. Quite honestly, they will be taking up a permanent spot amongst my beauty regulars as have proven they are able to cut through the noise and leave all other beauty products quivering in their wake.
