COSRX Advanced Snail 92 All in One Cream

Today, we’re going to talk about one of Korea’s most beloved brands: COSRX. Yes, they have been featured here and there in some of our blog posts, but we feel that they deserve a post for themselves considering the amazing products they provide us with. They take a unique approach to skincare with only the most innovative, gentle formulations, making them super popular amongst skincare enthusiasts. It comes as no surprise that almost every skincare enthusiast will have a COSRX product as part of the skincare shelf. The brand as a whole has become a cult favourite, and we absolutely love that.

About COSRX?

In a nutshell, COSRX is a Korean skincare brand that has taken the skincare community by storm. Oh, and we’ve been there where we didn’t know what their name stood for – Cos-RX or C-O-S-R-X? And, of course, what does it mean? Well, my fellow beauty enthusiasts, today we have an answer for you. Cos = Cosmetics and Rx = Prescription.

What we can deduce from this is that their products wholly take care of your skin problems, thus giving us the results that we absolutely love. As mentioned, their products provide us with results, aka being super effective, and simplicity, meaning that they are gentle enough for your skin. COSRX came into business in 2013, and since then it has taken the world by storm. Since then, they have won multiple awards and have fast become a skincare powerhouse. And that’s not all; they surely live up to the hype, and many, including us, cannot get enough.

We love things that are minimalistic and aesthetically pleasing. COSRX products encapsulate just that. It’s not too loud, and it’s not too simple. Just like their packaging, they also focus on ingredients. We’re going to talk about what we love about the brand as well as our favourite COSRX products that we deem a must-have and would love for you to try.

Skin Loving Ingredients

It’s 2023; if products and brands are not inclusive, what exactly are they doing? The good news is that COSRX is inclusive and caters to every type of skin. COSRX’s philosophy is to provide skincare solutions that are both affordable and effective while still being gentle enough for the skin and suitable for many different skin types. The ingredients that they use in their skincare formulations are mostly natural and safe. Some of the ingredients that they use include:

COSRX steers clear of harsh ingredients that could potentially irritate sensitive skin, such as sulphates, parabens, and synthetic fragrances. They also stock a wide range of products that include cleansers, essences, serums, moisturisers, and sunscreens. So, no matter what your skin concern may be, whether it be pigmentation, ageing, acne, or dry skin, COSRX will have a product as your solution. And what’s even better is that they tell you exactly how to use it and at which step of your routine it should come in.

Here are our top picks of COSRX products that we absolutely love!

COSRX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence

The COSRX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power

COSRX enthusiasts, no one, and I repeat, no one, should be sleeping on this powerhouse product. You might think lathering ‘snail slime’ on your face is kind of gross, but hear us out; it’s actually so beneficial for your skin. The ingredients in this product are super good for your skin. It includes hyaluronic acid, antimicrobial peptides, and glycoproteins. It also includes 96% snail mucin extract, making it exceptional for your skin.

This essence provides the ultimate hydration for your skin; it’s basically like taking a big sip of water after a long gym session, but for your skin. It plumps up your skin, making it look hydrated and glowing. If you have sensitive skin that is prone to getting irritated quite quickly, this essence will help soothe and calm it. Meaning that if you have sensitive skin, this will be almost a miracle product.

Another bonus is that this essence contains antibacterial properties, which means that it also helps your skin fight off bacteria that may cause acne and can help prevent further breakouts. All in all, the COSRX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power will give your skin hydration, a smoother appearance, stimulate collagen, and improve your skin’s elasticity. Honestly, what’s not to love?

BHA Blackhead Power Liquid

Do you suffer from blackheads and simply don’t know how to get rid of them, or even just want to minimise their appearance? Well, lo and behold, we have just the product for you. The life-changing (or maybe just skin-changing) COSRX BHA Blackhead Power Liquid is here to save the day. This product gently exfoliates your skin and contains 4% Betaine Salicylate. Bataine Salicylate is a type of BHA (Beta-Hydroxy Acid), which is known for its ability to reach through your pores and dissolve whatever is causing your blackheads.

It also contains Niacinamide and Willow Bark Water, which significantly help with brightening and soothing your skin. This will result in smoother and healthier looking skin. There are multiple benefits to using Blackhead Power Liquid, including unclogging your pores. Clogged pores lead to blackheads and acne, and this product will prevent that from happening.

This product further works at dissolving the oil and dead skin cells that could possibly be trapped in your pores. This product is great for acne-prone, oily skin as it helps control sebum production and further works at preventing breakouts. But it’s also gentle enough for sensitive skin, making it suitable for all skin types. This magic potion helps to improve the skin’s appearance, such as texture, and even out your skin tone. This game charger is definitely a must-have!

COSRX Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser

If you haven’t tried the COSRX Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser, then you’re missing out big time! This cleanser is an actual game changer. It has a pH level of 5.0-6.0, making it super gentle and suitable for all skin types.

Have you ever washed your face and, straight after patting it dry, you get a pulling, tight sensation because of the dryness? Well, with this cleanser, it won’t strip your skin of all its good, natural oils, leaving your face without that dry feeling immediately after cleansing it. This ensures that your skin is left feeling hydrated and healthy-looking.

But it doesn’t end there; this cleanser is packed with ingredients that your skin will absolutely love. It includes ingredients such as tea tree oil and beta-glucan. These ingredients work to ensure a strong skin barrier and calm, non-irritated, and hydrated skin. This silky-textured cleanser will remove all dirt, makeup, and oil without leaving behind any residue. It’s even vegan and cruelty-free. It’s just an overall win!

COSRX Acne Pimple Master Patch

If you’re as tired as we are of dealing with pesky pimples that just won’t go away, you simply have to try the COSRX Acne Pimple Master Patches. These patches are like little fighters for your skin. They contain hydrocolloid, which helps to extract any impurities and further absorbs the excess oils that are sitting in your pores.

Do you also struggle to fight the urge to pop them immediately? Or do you give in and pop it, but then you have to do extra work fighting the scar it tends to leave behind? Well, these patches will help you keep your hands away from that pimple, giving it the proper time to heal while doing all the work for you in the proper manner. The Master Patches reduce inflammation and protect your skin from irritation.

They reduce the size and inflammation of your pimple in no time and help prevent others from popping out. That’s not all; they’re so easy to apply, and they’re not easily noticeable, meaning you can even wear your makeup over them and go about your day.

COSRX AHA 7 Whitehead Power Liquid

If you want to achieve even-toned, bright, and smooth skin, look no further than this AHA 7 Whitehead Power Liquid. It will quite literally become your new bestie. With its powerful ingredients containing 7% glycolic acid, an AHA (alpha-hydroxy acid), it gently exfoliates your skin. So, say goodbye to rough, dull skin and say hello to radiant, glowing skin.

It gets even better; this Whitehead Power Liquid also contains niacinamide, which aids in brightening your skin as well as reducing hyperpigmentation. It also includes skin-soothing and hydrating ingredients such as aloe vera and apple water. As a plus, it is very lightweight, so it melts into your skin quite easily and doesn’t leave a greasy appearance behind. It’s also suitable for all skin types and won’t irritate sensitive skin. We believe that this is a must-have, as your skin will thank you for using it.

All in all, COSRX keeps on giving what needs to be given, and that’s why we love them so much. The fact that they choose ingredients that are gentle enough yet effective for all skin types is amazing. So, if you’re looking for products that aren’t too harsh for your skin but will improve it in the most positive way, then look no further.
