COSRX - Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence The Ordinary - 100% L-Ascorbic Acid Powder I know a lot of people don’t know how to mix their l-ascorbic acid powder from Deciem. Cosrx Snail mucin is a very good product to mix it with . This two work so good together . For hyperpigmentation. Guys these two ain’t no joke you need to try it . I’m not a fan of vitamin c but with these duo. I have seen great results . 100 percent .
COSRX - Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence . Essences are used to help prime your skin for better absorption of serums and other moisturizing products that come after. . 🐌 The @cosrx Snail Mucin Power Essence is made out of 96% snail mucin which is snail secretion filtrate, aka snail slime. Don’t worry, it’s not as slimy as you are imagining. It is slightly tacky but quickly smooths out as you massage your face with the product. It sometimes produces a brief milky-like emulsion whenever my face is still slightly wet from my toner or when I apply a very liquidy type serum. . Although @cosrx uses lab-grown snails, they collect the filtrate without aggravating or stimulating the snails. They allow the snails to sit over a mesh net in the dark space and let the snails leave their mucin behind as they naturally move around their environment. The mucin is then processed to stabilize it and make it appropriate for skincare use. . I’ve been using this product for 2.5 months and I feel that it has helped boost the effects of my other skincare products in terms of hydration, fading hyperpigmentation, evening out skin texture, etc. I feel that this product is good for all skin types. It’s fragrance free so it should be ok for those with sensitive skin unless of course, you’re allergic to snail mucin. . Snail mucin has a multitude of benefits so it’s a great ingredient to have in your skin care products. . 🌟Evens skin tone. 🌟Fades hyperpigmentation (includes acne scars but not melasma and sunspots). 🌟Hydrates (it has natural HA) and therefore, helps smooths fine lines and wrinkles as it keeps the skin plump. 🌟Fights off acne causing bacteria because of its antimicrobial properties. 🌟Prevents breakouts by exfoliating skin, sloughing off dead skin cells and unclogging pores (it has natural glycolic acid). 🌟Gives skin a more radiant look. .

The best pimple patches
For a long time, I thought pimple patches were gimmicky—I didn’t think putting a sticker on my zits would solve anything. Luckily, I was wrong! I was going through a really rough breakout back in the spring, and my Curology provider adjusted my formula and recommended some other products to help in the meantime, including hydrocolloid patches. I won’t even pretend that I understand exactly how they work, but they WORK—they suck liquid and gunk out of blemishes and leave them noticeably less red and inflamed overnight. I’ve been using patches regularly since around May, and these are the best ones I’ve tried. I like that these come in a sheet with different sizes, because not all blemishes are the same size. They’re very easy to apply, and since they’re clear they’re very subtle—I have no qualms wearing these out to run errands. I normally do all my skincare, then dry the blemish with a Q-tip so the patch will adhere better before I apply it. I toss and turn a lot in my sleep and I think I’ve had like *one* of these fall off, ever. My one note is that these do not work on “underground” pimples that haven’t come to a head—there are some patches with microdarts in them that are made specifically for those types of blemishes, though. I buy a 4-pack of the 24-count sheets on Amazon for around $12-$14, and they are so worth it to me. They help blemishes heal noticeably faster, and they also prevent me from picking at them. I recommend these to anyone who gets pimples that they wish they could zap in just a nigh or two!
COSRX pimple patches
COSRX - Acne Pimple Master Patch This is COSRX pimple patches that claim to improve the appearance of pimples. The target concerns are acne and whiteheads on all skin types. It has a sticker or bandaid like texture that you stick directly on your pimple. I have used these for about a year because I have many pimples. I like them especially for pimples that have already come to a head. It really sucks all the funk and oil out of your pimple and promotes the pimple healing. For me the pimple doesn’t completely go away with this but it certainly helps a lot. It’s like 10 dollars for a 3 pack which lasts a good amount of time. These are the og pimple patches and amazing for whiteheads and pimples! I highly recommend this!!

COSRX - Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser My dudes this cleanser is everything. AFFORDABLE, GEL, GETS RID OF BLACHEADS and everything else honestly. And it smells amazing; the type of smell that makes you want to wash your face no matter weather or sense of tiredness. It cleans so well and it’s low pH. It refreshes and softens instantly and also purifies the skin. This has helped me with my blackheads a lot. This has a clear gel consistency that foams up. At first I thought this cleanser was too harsh on my skin but seemed I had just been using other products making my skin sensitive. This is a super good cleanser that I’m still recommending do everyone and specially people just starting with skincare.
Review: Cosrx Low Ph Good Morning Cleanser and Foreo Luna Mini Facial Brush . These 2 products are the ones that I use in my everyday routine. They are my match made in Heaven 😇 . ✨First, the Cosrx Low PH Goodmorning cleanser is a great cleanser, because it will remove make up residue, excess sebum and dirt from your face. One of the nice thing is that it has a PH Level of 4.5 to 5 so this one will not disturb the natural PH balance of your Skin (which needs to be acidic so it will prevent us from getting breakouts). It has a scent of Tea Tree Oil and it is in a Gel like consistency and doesn’t foam or bubble much . ✨My toughts after washing my face is that this cleanser isn’t making my face feeling dry the natural moisture is still there giving your face a soft finish . ✨The 2nd product is my facial brush Luna Mini, I really really love this tool I have been using it for more than 2 years. And it’s still working perfectly fine . ✨For me, this product helps me clean my face because it uses a T-Sonic Pulsation Technology. Giving you 2 speed vibration settings for your own comfort giving those little brush works their wonders. Luna Mini has amazing battery life of 5 months and you can simply recharge it. Perfect for travelling because you don’t need to bring charger with you. You don’t need to worry because most or all of the Foreo product are waterproof . ✨After using this product I have noticed that my skin really feels clean and it mostly remove the whiteheads around my nose area. And it will give your skin a glow, very good result when you pair it with your favorite facial wash. Final Verdict . ✔️I really love Cosrx Goodmorning Gel Cleanser and will definitely recommend this to others to give it a try. It does the things that I am expecting from this product . ✔️This one is also suitable for sensitive skin. 💵 Price point it is very affordable won’t be a pain in the ass. 🤣

The lightest sleeping mask!
Ok so I’ve been using this baby for several weeks now and can not put it down! It’s a gel-water cream texture, extremely lightweight, non-greasy, but very hydrating. My skin feels plumped and rejuvenated when waking up in the morning. Definitely excellent for winter skin! The 65% rice extract is moisturizing and brightening but it’s also chock full of niacinimide and nourishing oils too. I don’t find the need to layer it with any other moisturizers on my normal skin. But it plays well with serums and toners underneath so I’m sure you could! The price is right too - super affordable ($20-something CAD) and it’ll go a long way. Plus you can always find it on some type of deal as well. Definitely recommend.
DREAMIEST OVERNIGHT MASK
If you want baby soft and supple skin, this will be your go to 🤤 It’s SUCH a light and hydrating mask that doesn’t make gour skin feel too overwhelmed and “heavy” with product. It’s not greasy and does just the job of making me look like I get a healthy amount of water intake daily (even tho i don’t, but let’s keep that between us). This is priced between $15-$18, depending on where you buy this from, which is such a budget friendly price for a QUALITY mask. COSRX does not skimp out on the ingredients and there’s nothing but good things in it! 🗣 run, don’t walk to your nearest ULTA or online store of preference to get this mask in your hands!

Cosrx Advanced Snail Cream
I'm on my second tub of this product, because of how much I love it! This product helped lighten up my acne scars and helped control my breakouts. I use this moisturizer as a night cream. When I wake up, my skin always looks smooth and bright, which I love. It's also very light and gets absorbed by the skin very quickly. I have oily skin, so I love this product, because of how light and moisturizing it is. I'm not sure if this product would be moisturizing enough for dry skin people, because of it's gel-like consistency. However, I definitely recommend it for people with acne-prone and oily skin.COSRX - Advanced Snail 92 All In One Cream
Holy grail ❤️🐌🐌🐌
The Cosrx snail 92 all in one cream is super great for dry skin. Since using this my skin is so hydrated and plump and my skin doesn’t flake anymore. It can be sticky but if you pat it into your skin the sticky-ness will go away. It is make from snail mucin and don’t worry the snail were not harmed in the process of making this product. It has adenosine and snail mucin which is great for anti-aging. Anyways it’s a really good product and I would definitely suggest.

CosRX Blackhead Power Liquid
A liquidity formulation that has a slight tackiness when applied! It is for blackheads, uneven texture, controls excess sebum! I love this product! It has 4% natural BHA in it and it is quite strong! Perfect for people with very acne-prone skin! I have seen a significant reduction of blackheads on my nose when I use this consistently! It gently exfoliates and gets rid of dead skin cells as well. I highly recommend this product!! it is also fairly priced at $22 for 3.38oz on cosrx website! I got mine for around $17 on amazon! COSRX - BHA Blackhead Power Liquid
COSRX- Blackhead Power Liquid
I like this stuff. It keeps my nose pretty clear without drying it out, which is pretty impressive. I have sensitive combination skin and deal with break outs at least every other week. Lately my skin has been breaking out so bad that I needed an extra step in my skin care routine. So I found this and y’all... Literally within one day my pores were smaller, my blackheads were barely noticeable, and my skin felt smoother. What is it: Formulated with 4% Betaine Salicylate, COSRX BHA Blackhead Power Liquid reduces blackheads, clears pores, and dissolves excess sebum. Betaine Salicylate (BHA) is an active ingredient that chemically exfoliates skin by penetrating into the skin, resulting in clearer, brighter, smoother skin with less breakouts. Who is it for: All skin types. How to use it: After cleansing, pump 2-3 times to a cotton pad. Gently swipe across the skin or, you may spray it on your clean palms, and massage it all over your face. Ingredients: Salix Alba (Willow) Bark Water, Butylene Glycol, Betaine, Niacinamide, Betaine Salicylate, 1,2-Hexanediol, Sodium Hydroxide, Sodium Hyaluronate, Panthenol, Xanthan Gum, Ethyl HexanediolCOSRX - BHA Blackhead Power Liquid

Will buy again and again
COSRX - AHA/BHA Clarifying Treatment Toner I really like this toner! I have weird combo oily AND dry skin. It helps exfoliate the dry patches on my face and keeps my face from peeling in the winter. It also helps me stay less oily throughout the day. It balances my skin in a way no toner really has before. I use this toner 4-5 times a week in my nighttime skincare routine, and I’m even noticing less breakouts in my problem areas like my chin and cheeks.
Great affordable toner!!!!
This was one of the first products I got to try from the brand because normally in Canada it’s been super hard to buy K beauty products without ordering online. This toner honestly helped save my skin, I hadn’t been exfoliating much and just a few uses of this during the week made such a huge difference to my pigmentation.

How I finally beat my cystic acne
Before I go into my product recs, let me just say: NO PRODUCT WILL BE YOUR MAGIC CYSTIC ACNE CURE. Sooo many things went into my journey. Finally realizing I was allergic to dairy, getting an IUD, getting sleep, etc. These products are the ones that helped me take control of when the breakouts DID happen. Please put your physical and mental health first, and remember to love yourself AND your acne. Everyone gets them! PAULA'S CHOICE - SKIN PERFECTING 2% BHA LIQUID EXFOLIANT This should be everyone’s HG exfoliator. The aloe vera makes this hydrating and perfect for skin thats always too dry or too oily. Salicylic acid is also the only chemical exfoliant that can penetrate the skin enough to actually help cysts. COSRX - Aloe Soothing Sun Cream SPF50 PA+++ CosRX is a lifesaver for me. I want to try every product of theirs! This one is my HG sunscreen, though. It’s a hybrid sunscreen that’s rich enough to be a moisturizer AND silky enough to be a makeup primer. It’s perfect for those days when your skin needs a moisturizer, but you don’t want to layer up your products, or you just want a low maintenance day routine. #e.l.f. - Happy Hydration Cream[products]# I am so obsessed with this skincare line. Gel moisturizers NEVER keep my skin hydrated for long, so I always reach for ones with a light oil in it. Hemp has quickly become my favorite, and this moisturizer is my HG for year-round hydration. COSRX - Balancium Comfort Ceramide Cream 80ml Perfect to put on dry patches at night! Make sure you use a moisturizer though - it only locks in moisture! COSRX - Centella Blemish Cream Great to put on a blemish to take down the redness and irritation. ONLY use as a spot treatment at night, though. It’s more difficult to blend in than a mineral sunscreen and way too thick to put all over the face. HONORABLE MENTIONS: - Double cleansing with an oil cleanser first. Your skin will thank you. - Sunday Riley Saturn Mask: good spot treatment for whiteheads and small zits - Hydrocolloid acne patches: I don’t get picky about the brand, but I use these on whiteheads and over popped acne. Just make sure to dry/disinfect it first before putting one of these guys on, otherwise you trap all of the gross stuff in there. Overall, patience was how I beat my acne. I graduated, I moved and decided to take time off of working. I adopted yoga and a better sleep routine. I cut out dairy and limited myself to one coffee a day. I made my own easy and healthy meals. And above all, I limited my skincare to a consistent and easy routine with essentials that were no-frills. I used an exfoliator twice a week and found nourishing serums and treatments that didn’t attack my skin, but gave it some extra help. YMMV in everything I said above, but I hope I helped at least a bit!
The only blemish cream I use!
📌My skin type: Dry/ Combination 📌Product information: Centella Blemish Cream ($21 for 1.01oz). This cream basically fights with red spots and dullness that is left over after acne. The key ingredient is Centella Asiatica Leaf Water, sunflower, glycerin, tea tree, Zinc oxide, zinc PCA. 📌Product texture: thick cream 📌My Experience: Recently I started getting acne and the very first product that came to my mind was this blemish cream. I immediately bought it and was actually excited to use it. Upon application the very first thing you notice is you need a very tiny size to apply it to your face and takes about 30 seconds to fully get absorbed into the skin. As far as how it performs, I do not have any acne scars or dullness on my skin and that pretty much it. I love it and will keep using it on my scares. 📌Like/ Dislike: LOVE 📌Would I recommend it? YES 📌Rating of the product: 5/5

Acne be gone!
These COSRX - One Step Original Clear Pad have been a staple in my skincare collection for almost a year now. It’s a great and simple no frills toner. I like to cut the pads in half to maximize the amount of product I have, and half is more than enough. After I cleanse I wipe one across my face and it tones and removes any excess makeup I missed. They’re only about $20 I definitely recommend them and would repurchase! & don’t forget to use the bumpy side for mild exfoliation!!
A solid toner, but not my favorite
COSRX - One Step Original Clear Pad What it is: pre-soaked cotton pads made with willow bark and betain Salicylate designed to keep oil and sebum under control to prevent acne. The cost is 20$ for a jar with 70 pads. What I think: These were actually my first introduction to the brand COSRX. I liked the playful packaging, and using these on my t-zone did help to control my oil production. However, since my acne is usually cystic, these didn’t do much to prevent the formation of my acne. I would recommend these to those with oily skin, but personally I wouldn’t repurchase.

Lovely for daily oil control 💕
I use this nearly every morning as a toner! I really like this K-beauty brand. I like nearly everything I’ve tried from them. This one is one of my favorites. It is perfect for people with enlarged pores and pore congestion. It has willow bark water and betaine salicylate to help keep the pores clear by dissolving the sebum and dead skin cells that can get trapped inside pores. It also has tannin, which helps tighten the pores and refine skin texture. It has a very liquidy texture. I use it under makeup and i think it does help me. I would recommend it to anyone with oily skin or acne-prone skin. It’s definitely worth the price of $22. I’ve been using it for months now and still have so much left!
Cosrx Two in One Poreless Power Liquid
This serum is marketed as a treatment that clears and tightens pores with willow bark water, betaine salicylate and tannin. It is used to help clear pore congestion and refine skin texture. This is a liquid texture that smooths into the skin easily. A little of this goes a LONG way, as shown in my pictures. Its not sticky at all either. I’ve been using this for a little while and I do see a difference in the visibility of my pores when I consistently use it. Of course it’s not going to make your pores invisible, but I think it’s good for people who have noticeably large pores. I would recommend it to others! I think it’s a good product and it’s $22 (at Ulta, probably cheaper at a Korean beauty website) for 3.38 oz. I’d rate it 4/5!

Pimple patches?! Yes please!!
I had heard mixed reviews about these pimple patches before I used them, but they work great for me. These are for those pimples that are at the surface and they manage to suck all the gunk out. I put them on before I go to sleep and when I remove them in the morning the pimple is flattened out. The only thing that I wish is that these came in a larger size - there are 3 sizes in here, but sometimes I need something a little larger for when there is a little breakout patch.

COSRX-Acne Pimple Master Patch
COSRX - Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence I really like this product! I usually apply a generous amount and can feel my skin drinking it up. This is of course made up of 96% snail mucin. The texture of this product is less like a traditional essence and more like a thick serum. It is rather thick and stretchy (thanks to the snail mucin of course) so apply it during the serum stage of my routine. I definitely recommend and will eventually repurchase!

COSRX- Acne Pimple Master Patch
COSRX - Acne Pimple Master Patch These patches have changed my life. I have sensitive, combination skin and suffer from hormonal acne. I haven’t found an affordable product to prevent it- but now at least I have a way to quickly heal it. I got them for acne but also I have a nasty bad habit with picking. I pick at everything, and I’m going to be 25 years old, and this habit needs to stop. These are WONDERFUL if you’re a picker like me.😒 What is it: These waterproof pimple patches protect acne from infection and help extract impurities overnight while encouraging healthy skin hydration. Designed to reduce redness and inflammation, these patches help reduce acne scarring by promoting healing. Who is it for: All skin types. How to use: 1. Cleanse the area around problem spot. 2. Select a bigger size patch than the problem spot and attach the patch to the spot. Ingredients: Cellulose Gum, Styrene Isoprene Styrene Block Copolymer, Polyisobutylene, Petroleum Resin, Polyurethane Film, Liquid Paraffin, Tetrakis Methane

COSRX - AC Collection Calming Foam Cleanser 150ml I like this cleanser!! A little goes a longgg way as it froths up nicely. It is very lightly scented and feels slightly cool on the skin. My face felt super clean yet super soft afterwards. I was gifted this but would definitely purchase it in the future 😊

CosRX Blackhead Silk Finger Ball
COSRX - Blackhead Silk Finger Ball PRODUCT These are thimble-like finger mitts which contain natural silk and sericin (a protein) to help physically buff away and dissolve blackheads. It claims to also help improve skin texture because of the physical exfoliation. The texture of these is pretty smooth once you follow the directions, but more on that later. OPINION I received these in PR and was very excited to try them as I had read some good review, but after using them a few times, I jsut don’t understand how they could work. You are supposed to soak them in warn water for a few minutes, then rub over the problem areas. The issue is that the mitts are so smooth that there is no way they are exfoliating anything. Plus, they have no product that would prompt chemical exfoliation. I find the product and effort to use them cumbersome and finicky. These were a big miss for me, so I rate them 1/5 stars. *Product was kindly gifted by StylevanaSV for review purposes. **Information about ingredients adapted from brand description.
