[Review] Cosrx Oil Free Ultra-moisturizing Lotion with Birch Sap

Cosrx Oil Free Ultra-moisturizing Lotion with Birch Sap Review

Cosrx Oil Free Ultra-moisturizing Lotion with Birch Sap Review:

COSRX as already globally well known brand with strong appearance on social network media lives up to their promise to deliver results with as they claim:

“Maximized effect, Minimized skin trouble
Maximized cost of ingredient, Minimized cost of container
Maximized product capacity, Minimized price
Maximized communication with customers, Minimized promotion
Maximized list of products, Minimized distribution structure.”

More or less, their philosophy sublimed in these five lines. I always have fun navigating through their product list as it always results in purchasing something new to my cosme stash. This time it’s all about Oil Free Ultra Moisturizing Lotion (with birch sap). My skin felt thirsty at the time.

[Review] Cosrx Natural BHA Skin Returning A-Sol

Cosrx Natural BHA Skin Returning A-Sol Review

Cosrx Natural BHA Skin Returning A-Sol Review:

Acne is an ever-persistent problem that many (if not all) of us have. Whether it is hormonal, product-related, recurring or occasional, pimples are pesky issues that leave us feeling self-conscious. Worst of all, the war is not over when the breakout has calmed down—it leaves behind a battle scar in the form of hyperpigmentation that takes months to eliminate. Thus, we are always in constant search of a preventative measures or quick fixes for acne-related woes.

I picked up the Cosrx Natural BHA Skin Returning A-Sol (or just A-Sol for short) with the same problem in mind. I’ve been struggling with breakouts for some years now, mostly due to stress and product reactions. Because of this, I’m constantly on the lookout for products to calm down acne and eliminate them in the fastest way possible. I learned about the A-Sol upon research and found that is has been mightily raved about by skincare aficionados. I immediately put it on my “To buy” list because of its promising ingredient list, ready availability, cheap price and established brand.

[Review] COSRX Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser

COSRX Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser Review

COSRX Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser Review:

I did not have a skin routine (believe me I never had a proper moisturizer and cleansed my face with soap and I am 22 years old ) until end of 2016 when I realized that I had horrible skin and it will continue to get worse if I don’t take care of myself. I was simply looking for a basic and affordable cleanser. I was quite sick of overpriced western beauty products in Australia.This was my entry into k-beauty which I am now a big fan of.

I have heard about COSRX brand from pretty much everyone including Charlotte Cho of Sokoglam and how affordable, simple and yet effective it was. Boom, it was quite affordable, like $11 AUD. Researching further into COSRX and their product line, I found that their prices were good as well as pretty much all of their products had good reviews. Also, I wanted to stick to one brand for developing my basic skincare routine.

[Review] Cosrx AHA 7 Whitehead Power Liquid

Cosrx AHA 7 Whitehead Power Liquid Review

Cosrx AHA 7 Whitehead Power Liquid Review:

The term ‘chemical exfoliation’ may sound a bit scary (well, to me anyway!), but it is actually gentler and more effective than physical exfoliation. Physical exfoliation works to get rid of the dead skin just on the surface, and sometimes can be a bit harsh for the skin. When it is harsh it can cause micro-tear, and that is pretty much an invitation to bacteria to come and have an acne party on your face. While chemical exfoliation on the other hand works deeper to loosen up dead skin cells and sebum and at the same time promotes healthy cell regeneration.

[Review] COSRX Holy Moly Snail Mask Sheet

COSRX Holy Moly Snail Mask Sheet Review

COSRX Holy Moly Snail Mask Sheet Review:

Cosrx while relatively a new brand is a crowd favorite amongst Asian Beauty. Most of their products, if not all is very promising (at least for me) as they cater to acne-prone and oily skin. What’s even better is the fact that their ingredients always seem to be neat so even people with sensitive skin can use them. I personally own few cosrx products and they are pretty good. It’s just that sometimes, I feel that they are way too mild but effective, nonetheless. So it was just a matter of time that I try the one and only sheet mask released by this brand –the Holy Moly Snail Mask.
