Earlier in March, Lioele (their Texas shop) sent me a bunch of samples to try and generously offered me a free full sized item, after I tried them and picked my favorite.
I choose the Intensive Time Reversing Snail Cream as my favorite and Lioele Texas sent me my full size cream promptly! I also purchased the Pore Clear & Tightening Pore Dr Ampoule as I was also interested in trying that out for a longer period of time.
I chose the Intensive Time Reversing Snail Cream for several reasons ~ it is a gel cream, which for those of us with oily skin or oily to normal skin, is the preferred texture, as it is lightweight but still very hydrating. Another reason why I picked this was that there were no adverse effects on my skin while I tried out the samples, I did not break out in acne and it is also a wrinkle and whitening product. One of the issues I always have is finding a good anti-aging cream that isn’t heavy, greasy and doesn’t cause acne. By far, most “crone” creams (ahaha) are usually made for drier skin types and us ladies who have oily skin suffer as we age, as the oil production hasn’t stopped, nor has the acne, but we get wrinkles and hyper-pigmentation. So, I am always pleased to find a cream that works well for my skin, while combating anti-aging and oil control at the same time!
This cream comes in the prettiest jar ~ it has a mirrored finish, multifaceted jewel-like case and the matte gold-finish lid has a slightly raised matte bronze dots in a swirl pattern. The presentation is very nice and this is a product that you would keep out in the open to be admired! It comes with a spatula to help scoop out the cream ~ I am a fingers person, so I rarely use spatulas. This product has a slight floral scent to it, however, it is not very strong and it fades quickly.
This is an intensive nutritional cream, full of antioxidants ~ many from the snail slime ~ collagen, allantoin, glycolic acid, Vitamin A, C and E, plus antimicrobial peptides, which help moisturize and stimulate collagen production. Snail filtrate and polypeptides will increase skin elasticity and increase firmness, and niacinamide will brighten your skin tone and help fade sun/age damage spots. It also contains adenosine, which is an anti-wrinkle ingredient.
My skin felt soft and smooth, very moist without being greasy or sticky, with a cooling sensation initially. The hydration lasts all day for me, my face never “dried” out and my foundation went on smoothly and evenly over this product. I have been using this for almost a month now, and my face has not had any major breakouts, rashes or any irritation with this cream. I like the texture of this cream, and how it makes my skin feel and look, which is clear and clean.

This is going to be a repeat skincare item for me, even though in the last month, I did not see any brightening in my skin tone. I think that will have to be measured over many months, not just one month, as with any product. Why I love it: I find that its texture and finish is perfect for the cooler months and will use in the late fall, winter and early spring. It did not cause any breakout or rashes, and my skin felt moisturized and hydrated, without being greasy or oily. I do think this anti-aging gel-cream is perfect for those of us who are looking for an anti-aging cream but have oily/normal-to-oily skin types. I find that in the warmer temperatures, it is a bit too dewy for me and does not mattify my skin enough for when the temperatures warm up, and I am already an oil slick to begin with. However, for the cooler months, this is not an issue as my skin doesn’t shine like it does during the summer. If you like a more dewy finish, you can use this year round. This is just a personal preference for me, and is not a negative reflection on this product. This is going to be my HG product for the cooler months.
