You Can Look as Good as a Snail with Karakol Kream

Karakol Kream is a skin cream currently being sold on a Spanish infomercial. “Caracol” is the Spanish word for snail, but they decided to spell the name of their product with Ks, probably because their high-powered legal team wanted to ensure they had a strong trademark.

Throughout the infomercial they show a computer-generated snail, with its shell being magically restored, which is presumably what Karakol Kream will do for your skin.

Here is a clip:

Perhaps the snail has some kind of cultural significance in Latin culture that I don’t know about, because I can’t image that any English-language infomercial for skin care would ever show a picture of a snail (CGI or not) or name the product “Snail Cream” (or even “Snail Kream”).

Would you like to use a skin care product made from a slimy, amorphous bug that crawls in dirt all day long? Or have a face as beautiful as a brown, krinkly, brittle shell of a snail?

Here are a couple more pictures of the star of this infomercial:

And here is a picture of hostess Lucy Garcia. Gotta love the snail shells on her!

  • How the hell am I supposed to know?

    Comment by Paul Lucas on April 8, 2007 at 11:46 am

  • Why, just look at a snail. Don’t they have nice skin?

    Actually, I have no idea.

  • They did not tell me that there a soap for it too.

  • Oh shoot, there goes my Escargot.

  • The reason they use snail mucas is because snails regenerate very quickly. The mucas has nothing to do with how the snails rarely get sick, can grow back an eye etc. but people for some reason think it does. So instead of buying a $3 brigg snail, they will go and spend money on this silly cream.

  • i’ve never try it.but looking @ the 3 young women let me know they’ve used the product & have clear skin.

    Comment by andy on June 26, 2007 at 9:43 am

  • i just bought this and it came in like a week ago and it has been working pretty good for me.

    Comment by enrique on July 23, 2007 at 2:17 pm

  • who cares if it is snail cream. It does look like it really works. and some people take drastic measures to look good. (like plastic surgery.) so i guess this is a good cream although its made from snail or should i say karakol.

  • i got mines today, i will let you guys know how it works

    Comment by sherry on August 3, 2007 at 8:36 pm

  • hey sherry…does it work?

    Comment by dee on August 9, 2007 at 7:52 pm

  • I’m using it and it works really great. I actually have a lot less acne and my face looks fresher and hydrated. Honestly, for me, its done exactly what the commercial said its gonna do. For all of you guys wondering why a snail…It IS for the fact that they regerate quickly. Its supposed to help our skin regenerate quicker too. Plus it has Vitamin E and Collagen which are good for healthy and beautiful skin. 🙂

    Comment by Adrianne on August 16, 2007 at 12:00 am

  • i got mines yesterday. i dont know if its works yet. i put it on last night and when i woke up i felt kinda refresh. so im guessing ill try it for a week and see if it works, even though im puttin snail “creme” on my face which is kinda weird nd nasty.

    Comment by Jon on August 17, 2007 at 10:41 am

  • Hi everyone, the cream worked on my acne, i have less acne as well. It calms my skin and makes it less inflamed. It took about a week or two to see results. Now im just waiting to see what its going to do for my acne scars. I also bought it for my stretch marks, hasnt done much there yet, but ive only been using it for about 3 weeks. But yeah it works for acne and it helps tone the skin.

    Comment by Sherry on August 20, 2007 at 1:11 am

  • does it work for a oily facea and whitehead?????

    Comment by saul on August 28, 2007 at 1:35 pm

  • Yea it works It takes 10 days to see results
    And No, the snail has no cultural significance
    to our latin culture I mean thats what the product is made of what did you expect to be put on the infomercial an orange?
    I think they used the K for the name of the product because there are already other “Cremas de Caracol” (snail creams)

    Comment by CJ on October 6, 2007 at 1:13 pm

  • Hey you guys i just bought mine and it looks like a clear hair gel, is it supposed to look like that? Also i use it and it has this subtle smell like warm almonds or something is it supposed to smell like that. ALso i bought it and it dries my skin stiff like if it was a mask, is it supposed to do that?

    Also suspicious of this product which has the label written all in english.

    Comment by RIcardo on November 17, 2007 at 4:38 pm

  • My guess is polymysin B sulfate, bacitracin zinc, and/or neomycin sulfate combined with vitamin E. There are other ways to buy these separately or in combination and get the actual results claimed for KK, -but- watching these two Hispanic beaudas makes my day.

  • I saw this informercial today and couldn’t keep my yes off Maribel Guardia’s constantly exposing her legs, boobs and everything else without getting an X rated show. She looked like a porn star promoting a DVD than a paid celebrity sponsor.

    To top her claims is the fact that she has had extensive plastic surgery: face, boobs, stomach, butt, Botox, and was hair extensions along with 3 tons of make up. Yeap, she really defines the natural beauty that some cheap jell cream made by the same rip offs from some Miami company which peddles a bunch of other useless stuff.

    Comment by Lucy on March 29, 2008 at 8:02 pm

  • yeah the other girl talking with maribel guardia is my sister!=]

    Comment by jessica on April 15, 2008 at 6:18 pm

  • To those who got it…how much did you pay total? Plus S & H what was the final price?

    Comment by unknown on April 19, 2008 at 12:22 pm

  • it cost me 149.00 for 4 of them hope it works

    Comment by lupe on April 24, 2008 at 8:29 pm

  • i just bought it to give to my mom for mother’s day…. total price including S&H was $149.00 and it’s going to deliver tomorrow… I hope it’s worth the money….. My mom has been wanting to try this cream for a very long time..

    Comment by Johanna on May 4, 2008 at 12:43 pm

  • Well I just ordered mine today! It’s worth the shot even if it’s a bit pricey because they do guarantee it for 2 months 100%! I will get it Monday and they state it takes about one week to see results. We shall see and I will keep you posted. 🙂

    Comment by C on June 7, 2008 at 11:04 am

  • Well I tried this product and honestly I did see A difference. My face was becoming clear from acne and scars. I am now looking at buying some more because I havent used it a while and my acne is returning.

    Comment by Freddy on July 1, 2008 at 5:53 pm

  • Jessica, your sister puts Maribel Guardia to shame! She is the true natural beauty of the infomercial. What is her name?

    Comment by Emiliano on July 2, 2008 at 11:35 am

  • I know that this stuff really works. I have used another cream very similar and along with the soap. My acne and scars diminished revealing the best skin I have ever had in my life last summer. I will be ordering this soon again. If people can take pills damaging their kidneys without knowing the full ingredients in that, why not try karakol kream?

    Comment by Andria on July 17, 2008 at 3:59 pm

  • I got another version, called Caracol Cream, on Ebay, and I’m a redhead, freckel, 48 years old, who used to sunbathe in my youth, and my face clearly showed it… This stuff is FANTASTIC

    Comment by Joyce on July 27, 2008 at 9:47 pm

  • Oh Yeah!!I’m sure that all those Senoritas Y Senoras out there want to rejuvinate their faces with Snail Snot!!

    Comment by Shanghai Johnny P on August 27, 2008 at 6:14 pm

  • For those of you who have tried the cream, do you know if it’ll work on pock marks left by acne?

    Comment by Daisy on September 17, 2008 at 1:56 pm

  • i just received mine today i’ll let you all know if it works out for me in 2 weeeks.

  • My boyfriend gave me 2 jars of this creme. At first I was pissed, I was thinking this M*@$&* F#@$%#* just gave me some wrinkle creme!! He told me he uses it to reduce the small shaving scars on his face. I tried it and love it. The cream in just 1 week made my face tighter and smoother. We are no longer together but I now buy the creme.

    Comment by cristina on June 22, 2010 at 4:38 pm

  • Hello,
    Regarding snail cream, I did tried it for few months and it DID WORK although I am 77 years old. I stopped and my skin went back with all my wrinkles. The product has “paraben” which causes cancer that is why I stopped using this wonderful cream. The one I bought was called “ELICINA” and the snail extract was 80%. You have to read the ingredients.

    Comment by Helene Kaplan on May 12, 2011 at 12:10 pm

  • I am using this as a makeup remover. I’ll rub it all over my face and eyes(eyes closed) then get a hot wet washcloth and wipe it off. Then I’ll wash my face with my favorite face wash and spin brush. And my face gets squeaky clean :). Love, Trisha 😉

    Comment by trisha on June 15, 2015 at 10:58 am

  • I don’t care for it as a regular skin cream. And I use it that way just to use it up. When I run out I’ll prob just get some cheap vitamin e cream. I got a few bottles as a gift I don’t remember from who. Love, Trisha _❤
