I have been using this K-beauty product- COSRX for years now. To be honest, this is my most trusted K-beauty brands. I thought this review is going to help people who would like to try using COSRX products. I am writing this review from oily skin types point of view.
A little bit information of COSRX. It is one of the K-beauty brands that was founded in 2014. Their tagline is “Expecting Tomorrow” and according to the company’s manifest, customer’s feedback is a crucial element to the development of COSRX products
- Cosrx Alcohol Free Toner
I have been using this for years now and I really like it. At first, I thought Cosrx product is more suitable to dry-skin types but I was totally wrong! Even though I have a super oily type of skin, this toner work very well for me. It works fine to remove dead cell on my face and it is not irritable due to the fact that it doesn’t contain alcohol. See here for more info.
2. Cosrx Oil-free Ultra Moisturising Lotion (with Birch Sap)
Okay, this moisturiser is kind of holy grail for a super oily skin because it does not make your skin oilier compare to other moisturiser. In fact, it help your skin hydrated all day. Birch sap is a juice that is excavate from Birch tree/ white birch (Betula Alba). This birch juice is believed to be adept at hydration, thus make it very suitable ingredients to be put in the moisturiser!See here for more info.
3. Cosrx Advance Snail 69 Mucin Power Essence
This is really another Holy Grail product, hands down! To all women out there who’s been looking for anti-aging product, this is for you! I like it so much because it is hydrate my skin all day, as well as improve my damaged skin. This product contains 96% filtered snail mucus- which is believed to seals moisture as well as improving skin texture and quality. See here for more info.
4. Cosrx BHA Blackhead Power Liquid
This is the least favourite of COSRX product. I don’t even finish using it. The fact that it does nothing to my face and kind of irritable because it contains chemical exfoliator. I don’t think we need this product as we all know, we better use face scrub products to remove all the blackheads. I would not recommend it but of course you are welcome to try. See here for more info.
5. Cosrx Low pH PHA Barrier Mist
I never use face mist in my life but since they said this COSRX mist can shield my skincare from evaporating, I tried it once. I cannot say it is 100% works, just slightly! I think this product will totally for for those who have dry skin types. See here for more info.
6. Cosrx PHA Moisture Renewal Power Cream
This is another PHA (Polyhydroxyalkanoates) contains product which is a gentle acid that known to help prevent moisture loss from your skin. I called it SUPER moisturiser because it really works if your skin is dry or sun burned. It also can be use as a sleeping mask and you will be wake up with a new hydrated skin! See here for more info.
7. Cosrx Centella Blemish Ampoule
This is a highly concentrated serum that help to relief a breaks out or acne prone skin. Centella is an herb that known can be used to treat wound as well as improve blood circulations. So far, for me this serum is quite helping to shrink my acne but it’s taking time to heal. You need to applied it everyday. This one of my favourite COSRX products. See here for more info.
8. Cosrx Centella Blemish Cream
This Centella cream functioning quite similar to its serum which can work to reduce blemish and reduce sensitive acne skin. The texture is quite thick and from my experience, it is advisable to use it only at night. It is not suitable to apply when you are going out because for sure it will block your pores if you wear it before applying your foundation. So far, this cream works fine but same as its serum, it’s taking some times to take effect. See here for more info.
