Starting today until the end of the week, Joiz and I will blog about current skin care. Please keep in mind we both have oily skin, so some might not work for you if you have dry skin. We hope you’ll find this series informative. Please leave a comment if there’s something you still wish to know about our skin care products or routine. 🙂
I started having acne (again) since late last year. I believed it was because of sunscreen and foundation gone bad. But switching products and double-cleansing didn’t change anything. I then figured I had hormonal acne as it persistently appeared on my jawline and cheeks. I knew I had to update or return to my more-then-3-step skin care routine.
The first product I’ll share with you is this recent purchase that has done wonders for my skin.
COSRX One Step Pimple Clear Pad
Cleanse, exfoliate and treat breakouts conveniently with pre-moistened pads, designed to wipe away excess dirt, oil and purify clogged pores with the daily natural BHA treatment pads. Leaves skin feeling clean and smooth.
The COSRX One Step Pimple Clear Pad is a chemical exfoliant that treats and prevents acne and reduces appearance of blemishes. A tub contains 70 pre-soaked pads. After facial wash, I gently wipe the rough side of a pad all over my face with more attention on acne-prone and oily areas. Then I turn over for the pad’s smooth side and gently wipe again. This will help the skin to better absorb the treatment formula.
8 Days since I started using it and I already feel and see the results. I barely get acne and clogged pores where my eyeglasses rest are almost gone. When I get any irritation, the treatment pads keep it from worsening. If any acne or pimple do appear, it would be gone in a day or two. This and the next product I will review [SPOILER] COSRX Natural BHA Skin Returning Emulsion [END SPOILER] are an awesome combo!
I recommend this if you have acne-prone, oily, and/or sensitive skin; especially if your skin dislikes physical exfoliants.
Only Watsons carry COSRX locally, but you can also buy from online sellers. I recommend Skincare Curator. I bought this tub at Watsons, Megamall at a sale price of PhP479, iirc. SRP is around PhP650. I wanted to hoard because I didn’t see this in Watsons Greenbelt and SM Makati. 😆
