I've been super into Korean skincare for quite awhile now, and it seems that my skin really likes it. It opens up a whole new world of brands to try, which, as a beauty addict, is perfect. I'm not loyal to one brand, but sometimes I find myself reaching for a bunch of products all from the same brand. A brand I've been loving lately is CosRx, a Korean skincare brand with a very reasonable price point. The products are no-fuss and effective - I've got five of them so far to share today.
Honey Ceramide Full Moisture Cream | This is my favorite product I've tried from the brand so far. It's a simple, extremely hydrating cream that works well in the morning and at night. It's not heavy at all and has almost a gel-cream consistency. I know that my skin loves both honey and ceramides as skincare ingredients, so I had high hopes for this. It doesn't sink in as quickly as some creams I've tried, but once it does it's weightless and keeps your skin moisturized all night/day. This really plumps up my skin and seals in all the steps I did before it.
Honey Ceramide Eye Cream | I just got this recently, and I'm pretty sure it's just the Full Moisture Cream in a smaller pot. I still love it anyway, and the formula works really well around the eyes. It's the same lightweight, gel-cream texture so it doesn't clog up my sensitive undereyes, but it's still hydrating enough that my concealer doesn't get cakey and dry under my eyes. I haven't been using this for long enough to see if there are any effects on dark circles or anything, but it doesn't claim to, and I pretty much just use eye creams for hydration.
BHA Blackhead Power Liquid | I had heard so many raves about this product, so I just had to get in on it. The texture is slightly more viscous than water and spreads over the skin easily. Used consistently, I have noticed it helps keep blackheads at bay, and although they have a formula for whiteheads, I've been using this over other breakouts with success. I use it after cleansing and toning. It uses 4% BHA as well as Willow Bark and Niacinamide to clear the skin, as well as Hyaluronic Acid to hydrate. It doesn't feel harsh at all - it doesn't even burn when put on active spots.
Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence | This was another product I had heard raves about, and it's a new addition to my collection as well. This is so incredibly hydrating - I don't know if it's just good timing/hormones, but ever since I started using this a couple weeks ago, my neverending breakouts seem to have subsided. It has even more of a viscous texture than the Power Liquid, which I wasn't used to in an essence, but it spreads so easily over the skin and sinks in quickly. The 96 means there's 96% snail excretion filtrate, which really helps to repair and hydrate the skin.
Ultimate Nourishing Rice Overnight Spa Mask | I got this a few months ago after Sharmili reviewed it, and it's been love ever since. Despite being an overnight mask, it's quite a lightweight cream, and it doesn't feel sticky or like it'll stain your pillowcases. I wake up with insanely plump and glowy skin when I use this, so I use a thin layer almost every night. With the warmer weather coming I haven't been using as many face oils at night, but this gives my skin just as much hydration and glow. It feels incredibly soothing as well, so I'm sure this will be a summer staple when my skin is stressed.
Have you tried anything from CosRx? I need to try the Blemish Patches next!
