ElishaCoy to release snail Essence + Promotion Launch June 4, 2011






Elishacoy will be finally releasing the essence from their snail line called the Elishacoy Skin Repairing Snail Essence  스킨 리페어링 스네일 에센스. We’ve written about this before in our previous articles but it was not released back then.





This snail essence will contain 80% snail mucin extracts and is coupled with a few other goodies such as tomato callus extracts which is rich in lycopene, a very strong antioxidant. It also includes phyto collagen which is fermented from seven kinds of botanical extracts and marine collagen which helps in moisture retention and provides moisture, soy protein, EGF, adenosine which helps in skin elasticity and firmness as well as diminishing wrinkles!





Nano-liposomed with 8 kinds of vitamins plus all the goodies above ensure maximum penetration into the skin to ensure it’s effectiveness.





The product is also free from harsh chemicals to go with Elishacoy’s naturalism concept. ( though there are still some nasty chemicals in their ingredient list )



There is also a launch promotion going on :



A set consisting of the new Eye balm, Snail Cream , and the new Essence at –50%




A set consisting of the snail cream and essence at also –50%.




Just the essence costs about 42,000 wons – so it’s def worth it to purchase the cream + essence set for only an additional 3,000 wons.

Elisha Coy releases 2 new products–Snake and Snail! April 27, 2011


ElishaCoy has been following Tony Moly’s back and releasing the same products.

ElishaCoy released their own version of the snail cream last month, and now they are releasing their own version of the SYN-AKE Cream, just 2 months after Tony Moly released theirs.

It contains the patented SNY-AKE ingredient, EGF, Vitamin B5, amongst other goodies.

And the next product off the Snail line is the Essence.


The Snail Essence is made of 80% Snail mucin and is nano-technologied, therefore ensuring maximum absorption.


ElishaCoy Anti Trouble T Serum Review April 6, 2011



Phyto-TF(Phyto-Trouble Factor) The patent plants complex (10-0897140) effectively calms the troubled skin.

The essence of 12-tea complex pleasantly moisturizes the dry skin. The serum contains a plants complex that clears and purifies rough skin.

Organic cornflower extract leaves dry skin supple, soft and amply moisturized.

It controls sebum, ease redness, detoxifies the skin and treat skin atopies and troubles, leaving the skin clear and clean.

Even when skin trouble disappears, the allergies remain. Plant extracts with a strong anti-oxidizing function is effective on atopic skin that dries easily.

Apply toner in the morning and the evening, and use the spuit to spread the serum lightly over the face. Cover your face with hands to let the serum get deeply absorbed. Apply it intensively on areas with visible skin troubles to enjoy better effects.



Comes in a silver box. English description is available ( seen in the photos above ). The product itself comes in a pipette glass bottle. The glass bottle isn’t too heavy. Pipette is also glass made. Standard packaging, nothing to shout about.


Typical serum texture. Transparent watery gel texture that is easy to apply. May be sticky when applied but it disappears once it is absorbed into the skin!


In Korean Sad smile

However here are the main ingredients :


This serum doesn’t work at all.

This is our first miss from Elisha Coy Sad smile

The only good thing was it was fairly moisturizing and the gel texture felt comfortable on the skin and absorbed easily.

But it did nothing to the ‘troubles’ we had – acne, blemishes. It doesn’t control sebum as it claims to, and even after using it for 2 weeks, there were no results. It did not even calm the skin due to my allergies.

Waste of time because it has a rather good ‘main ingredient’ list. Ok, back to my Whoo Secret Royal Court Balm…

For consolation, this serum is oil-free, artificial fragrance- free and contains natural colorant ( we did not see any colour btw )

We also have the other serum from the same series for Pores. Let’s hope that one works better!

Snail Escargot Cream craze spreading to the rest of asia March 18, 2011


In 2009, there was a boom in the popularity of snail creams in Korea.

In 2010, the snail cream craze heightened and now in 2011, it has spread to Japan and sooner or later – the rest of Asia.

Snail Creams are a hit among Japanese tourists in Korea. Japanese brands has been monitoring this situation and will be introducing their own snail creams this year.

Amore Pacific’s Etude House released their snail cream at the end of last year. The cream contains 73% of snail extract and is paraben-free, artificial colouring-free, artificial fragrance free and alcohol free.

LG’s The Face Shop launched also their version of the snail cream called  Sseal Secret Seal Of Nature which contains 60% Snail Mucin together with Panthenol and paraben-free.

The most famous of the lot is probably the snail cream from It’s Skin. Aiming at a higher-end market and luxurious packaging, their Prestige Creme Escargot was such a hit that a lotion, emulsion, bb cream, and body cream from the Escargot line was introduced. The It’s Skin cream contains 12,600mg of snail mucin.

Nature Republic has also joined the bandwagon recently and will be introducing their Snail Therapy Set which will consist of a Cream, Serum and Eye cream.

Tony Moly has also introduced their Live Snail Intense Repair line which started from a cream and now expanded to an eye cream, mask and serum due to high demands.

Elisha Coy has also recently introduced their Skin Repair Snail cream, and has achieved amazing sales after being introduced in Japan in just one day! The Elisha Coy Snail Cream consists of 91% Snail Mucin with Hyaluronic Acid and Aloe Vera extracts. A Mask and Eye Patch will also be released.


VoV has also recently released their snail cream called Es : Pair Snail Ampoule Cream containing 71% Snail Filtrate.

Here is a list of all the Korean brands which have a snail line. Included are also the Korean names if you want to purchase them on Gmarket :

Brand Title Capacity Price
Nature Republic Snail Therapy Set (스네일 테라피 80 크림) Cream (55ml) + Serum Ampoule (30ml) + Eye Cream (20ml) 69,000 wons (for 3 products)

Tony Moly 인텐스 리페어 라이브 45ml 36,000
VoV 에스페어 스네일 앰플 크림 Unknown Unknown

I’m sure that there’s a reason behind all these hype and craze. We’ve tried a few snail creams and we’ve generally liked all of it. Somehow you can’t just go wrong with Snail Creams!

ElishaCoy Herb Clay Pore Refining Mask Review March 5, 2011





Large pores, extruding sebum, popping pimples.. Solving of chronic skin troubles in one shot!!

1.It provides skin with vitality and liveliness by soothing the T-zone with lots of sebum and skin troubles caused by large pores and sebum.

2.Containing white clay having superior sebum absorption than loess (red clay), it makes skin baby soft, promotes good absorption of makeup and even lasts your makeup for a long time even up to next day.


3. Elishacoy Herb Clay Pore Refining Mask, containing moroheiya known as Cleopatra’s leaf for skin care, provides skin with sufficient moisture and nutrition.







Product Feature


1.Pore & Keratin Care



Vegetable herbal substances make your skin clean and clear!!
Containing white clay rich in minerals, it has superior sebum absorption than loess (red clay) and cares for your pores, leaving it soft and smooth.
Soapwort extract removes old keratin, making skin clear and clean and leaving it a fresh feeling.

2.Sebum control & trouble care



An essential item for greasy or tired skin caused by frequent troubles
Containing sage extracted from beefsteak plant and salvia (sage plant), it soothes various skin troubles and controls sebum.
With an astringent effect from burdock, it makes your skin soft, supple and long-lasting.


3.Supply of sufficient moisture & nutrition


Containing stevia, an herbal sweetener, celery, tomato and carrot extract, it provides skin with sufficient moisture and nutrition, making it soft, supple and transparent.



Moroheiya leaves contained only in Elishacoy Clay Mask are known as Cleopatra’s eating for her skin care and phyto-hyaluronic acid B having superior moisturizing activity provides skin with sufficient moisture and nutrition.


Vegetable herbal ingredients including lemongrass, rosemary and marigold give you a feeling of aromatherapy.












Packing is simple and elegant. The pore clay mask comes in a very heavy glass jar. A very cheap looking plastic scoop is included, but the plastic scoop does make it more convenient and hygienic !


Love the colours and images used on the box.











The texture of the clay isn’t very thick like other clay mask. It is quite easy to spread and it isn’t sticky.


You can see from the photos that there are herbs mixed together with the clay. It gives a very natural image of the mask!


The scent is really natural. It has a blend of herbs and if you love the natural herbs smell, you’ll love this. You can definitely smell lemongrass here!









The clay mask contains lots of herbs which calm the skin.







Corchorus olitorius or Jute

is a long, soft, shiny vegetable fibre that can be spun into coarse, strong threads. Leaves of Corchorus olitorius contains Phenolic antioxidants and also antifungal and antibacterial benefits which heals damage skin and is a helpful remedy for psoriasis, eczema and acne.

Saponaria officinalis / Soapwort

Soapwort is a perennial herbaceous plant that grows in shady areas. It is common to most of Europe, Western Asia and North America. In traditional medicine, the roots are used to treat certain skin diseases. The leaves are rich in natural surfactants which form a natural lather, producing a “soapy” water that is ideal for cleansing the skin







We adore this mask. It has a great natural scent, and it feels like you’re blending your own DIY clay mask with various herbs. It feels very soothing and relaxing on your skin.





Those with oily and troubled skin will benefit from this mask. Unlike other clay mask, it doesn’t dry up the skin and makes the skin feel tight and uneasy after washing off.




It also contains ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, apricot kernel oil to help moisturize the skin, and scanning through the ingredient list, there is a lot of ingredients which have soothing and calming properties which is an essential for those with easily irritated / sensitive / acne skin.




The texture of the clay is also rather light compared to other clay masks and spreads quite easily on the skin.



After washing off your face, you’ll notice an improvement on your skin texture ! Pores do loook a little smaller as the clay does help shrink it a little, but the effect only lasts for a while like all clay masks.  It helps calm your skin too if you have any redness. We also noticed that it does help in controlling oil too.



If you’re looking for a clay mask which is rather natural, smells great and helps soothe your skin, give this a try!
