Out of all the first treatment essences I like this one the most. It is reasonably priced and has excellent packaging. I cannot smell any sort of fermented smell to this product, which is slightly disappointing. But I feel as if I have actually gotten results.
This is one of my HOLY GRAILS. Although I am fairly new to Korean skincare this product is a must have if you struggle with dark spots. I tend to pop my pimples, I know I know not the best for my skin, and I get dark spots from where I picked at my face but this helps clear that up within a week.
This product is amazing wouldnt describe it any otherway its cheap and affordable very affevtive in my daily life this is my staple amd it just might be your staple product too.
Powerful ingredients. Lightweight and effective! I love layering this under a sheet mask so my skin is extra cared for l. But I also love it for day and night use under my moisturizers and serums. Love the packaging too. It just works.
This is one of my favorite products, and has attained holy grail status in my routine. I've been using it for years and I'm on my 5th bottle. I can't say whether it helps fade acne marks because I use more powerful medications for that, but it definitely helps my sensitive skin tolerate them and provides much needed hydration for my dry as a desert face. My Finacea cream is pretty drying and putting this underneath prevents it from drying out my face too much and helps it spread easier. Otherwise I have to use a lot more and it hurts to drag it across my skin to spread it. It's not greasy or oily so if you have oily skin it will be a very light hydrator, and if you have dry skin like me, using it under your moisturizer will help boost the moisture of your skin if you feel like your moisturizer just isn't cutting it on its own. It makes my skin so much softer and it does help with redness and irritation. At one point I wondered if it's really doing much so I tried skipping it for a few days, and my skin suffered. I'll keep using this for as long as they make it!
I have mixed feelings about this product but mostly good ones. Love the texture of this. Not too runny and not too thick. Doesn't take long for my skin to absorb and when it does I'm left with hydrated glowing skin. It really is one of those products that is pleasurable to use and the effects can be seen immediately. My one major negative point is that for some reason if I use this for say more than 5 days in a row I get a small red patch near my jawline. For the longest time I couldn't figure out what was causing it but I'm 99% sure it is this. I don't mind not being able to use it everyday though because I keep two other essences in rotation. My skin is combo-oily acne-prone for reference. I love that this is like other COSrx products where it only has ingredients it needs and doesn't really have any "fillers". I think this is great to use in the morning and makeup sits very nicely on top of it. It's also very affordable!
I love how soft this makes my skin feel! I only apply one pump because I have acne-prone skin and I layer this with other essences and serums. If I add too much I get oily because it IS moisturizing. I have hormonal acne and lots of PIE (purpley) scars and this seems to help them heal.
I am obsessed with everything CosRX. This essence is a great consistency that goes on and absorbs instantly. I use this as a FTE immediately after toning. Using this as a base makes everything else absorb wonderfully. If you are looking for the fermented goodness of the SKII or Missha FTEs but under $20, give this a go! If you don't like it please send it my way!
I bought this as a replacement to my very hard to replace SK II essence, so far it's doing a great job. When I wake up my face is so bright and soft. I use it after using the beauty water toner, and cosrx pimple pad (which is also very great). Cosrx overall is a very good and affordable skincare brand. I would recommend it to any Asian skincare lover!
Q & A
My skin had always had red time, not roscea but just red. Would this help reduce that? Or other products to recommend
Is this similar to bleaching gels that Asian girls use to lighten their skin tone? What is the primary use?
Do you use this as a spot treatment or all over?
How long have you been using it, how many times a day, paired with what other products to see results and what are they ? Since its galactomyces would it be a decent and much more affordable dupe for the sk2 FTE ?
Is it like a bronzer?
