Philicity Reeken is always up for a challenge and is never too scared to try something new. 

Reeken is used to visiting beauticians for facials but she has never tried a snail facial.

Snail mucin contains nutrients such as hyaluronic acid, glycoprotein enzymes, and proteoglycans, all known for their healing and rebuilding properties. 

The snails are gently put onto the face and they crawl around. No snails are harmed during the process. 

Jacaranda FM's video department and digital team visited the Reeken residence to capture the moment and to hear how this facial is good for everyone. 

Watch it here: 

All COVID-19 regulations and protocols were observed by the beautician and the Jacaranda FM team.
