My Beauty Regimen; Fave Products + Snake vs. Bee vs. Snail

Today I’ve decided to dedicate a blog to my own beauty routine, as I often (everyday) get asked what I do personally, the best way to use our serums, and how do our serums lineup and interact with other products. Although we are planning on coming out with a full range of skincare products (moisturizer, toner, glycolic, retinol, cleanser, sheet masks, etc.), we are not quite there yet, so I thought that I would outline my favorite products that you can actually get your hands on to use in addition to our serums.

First I would like to touch on the benefits of each of our serums, how to pick your poison, and the benefit behind buying a serum set (which btw is definitely the best deal on our site).

So let’s start with our Bee Serum. Our Bee Serum contains purified bee venom which contains a ton of antimicrobial properties, great for eliminating bacteria and stopping acne or breakouts in their tracks. In addition to its antimicrobial properties, purified bee venom works as an anti-aging ingredient by plumping skin, recreating collagen and elastin, and working as a smaller scale version of Botox. Our Bee Serum also contains a synthetic variation of bee’s Royal Jelly, which is excellent for cellular turnover, has intense healing properties, and contains a laundry list of vitamins and antioxidants.

With all of that being said – I personally like to use Bee Venom in the morning. It is great under makeup, controls my breakouts, controls oil production, and truly brightens and evens my over all complexion. Just a great way to start my day and protect against factors that could potentially clog my skin while I go about my routine.

Next up is our Snake Serum. Our Snake Serum contains a synthetic variation of Temple Viper Snake venom known as Syn-Ake, which delivers powerful action to smoothen the appearance of expression lines around the forehead, eyes and mouth with significant results in as soon as 7 days. Our Snake Serum also contains a biomimetic peptide known as MossCellTec™ No. 1, which helps skin to adapt quickly to climatic changes. This ingredient provides a significant increase in skin hydration, homogeneity and barrier function, despite changing climatic conditions in just two weeks, as well as a reduction in wrinkle depth after just four weeks.

That being said, I personally like to use Snake Serum in the morning, mixing it with our Bee Serum during the spring and fall months specifically. Both serums contain incredibly similar bases, so mixing them or interchanging them as a morning serum will not give you any adverse reactions or breakouts.

I personally suffer from Dermatitis and almost always have a flare up when the seasons change. Incorporating Snake Serum into my daily routine during seasonally transitional months really helps prevent me from experiencing my otherwise inevitable dermatitis flareups . Additionally, our Snake Serum contains white and green tea extracts which are great antioxidants, as well as licorice extract which helps diminish the appearance of redness.

And lastly, there is our Snail Serum. My very favorite child. Our Snail Serum contains a biomimetic peptide based on Cone Snail venom known as XEP-018 which is used for extreme line relaxation and smoothes and firms the skin. In an in-vivo study of a single application of 3% of XEP™-018 (the percentage in our serum) 33 subjects “saw visible and significant reduction of wrinkle depth and rugosity 2 hours after application”. Yes, it is THAT good. Drool.

Our Snail Serum also contains a biomimetic peptide known as Hydraprotectol, a chemical compound based on snail mucin. These glycosaminoglycans derived from snail mucin deliver firmness, support, and wrinkle depth reduction. The glycolic acid found in snail mucin is also said to help your cells produce collagen and elastin, while at the same time evening out skin tone and smoothing its surface. Hydraprotectol is also incredibly hydrating and is my choice for a nighttime serum.

So now that you have a rundown on how I use our serums, this is my beauty routine:


  1. Double. Cleanse. Do it. For real. I would love to recommend a great cleanser, but I have yet to find one that I’m obsessed with. Will get back to you on that (or just make my own).
  2. Caudalie Moisturizing Toner
  3. Kate Somerville Dermalquench Liquid Lift with Retinol
  4. Olehenriksen Banana Bright Eye Creme
  5. Bee Serum (contains vitamin C so no need for an additional vitamin C serums)
  6. Kate Somerville Goat Milk Moisturizer


  1. Make up wipe (I usually wear makeup so I like to do that first), and then double cleanse
  2. Dr Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Extra Strength Daily Peel (contains glycolic acid)
  3. Olehenriksen Banana Bright Eye Creme
  4. Snail Serum (contains vitamin C so no need for an additional vitamin C serum)
  5. Kate Somerville Goat Milk Moisturizer

And Note*** I LOVE peels, and I would highly recommend using a stronger glycolic peel once every few weeks. When you use any variation of an exfoliant (especially a more chemical variation), you are creating cellular turnover while at the same time enabling your other products to work better. With that being said, note that the Dr. Dennis Gross Daily Peels that I recommended do contain glycolic acid, so be careful if playing around with both that product and an additional higher grade glycolic. Glycolics that are 20-30% are more of a medical grade concentration, and I would suggest starting off with a 10% glycolic at first, especially if you’re doing it yourself at home.

Another Note*** I would highly recommend dermaplaning once a month (when the spas and salons open up again) to get rid of any vellus hairs and for further exfoliation. Dermaplaning is another great way to enable your products to work their best - and your makeup will look flawless. If you have skills, go ahead and be my guest and try to do it on yourself - although I will warn you, it is tricky AF. With that being said, do NOT drink and derma plane. I have done it. And it is.... NOT a good idea. LOL - like at all. It took my face a month to heal. Cringe.

So there you have it! Oh, and lastly, I would like to note that I am not a Doctor or a Dermatologist, just a licensed esthetician, so please don’t sue me if this routine does not work for you. It’s just what I have found that works for me!
