For those of you who aren’t following K-beauty products, you might never heard of COSRX. Prior to watching joanday on YouTube, I had never heard of COSRX either and I got to know about Huxley at the same time. Some time last year, I started planning for a Seoul trip for this upcoming Chinese New Year. Sadly speaking, Mom is not much of a winter person as much as I do.
So, we changed plans and moved our destination elsewhere. Now that Seoul trip is no longer viable, I searched online to see if there’s any Malaysian website which sells Korean beauty products and I chanced upon Hermo.my. Much to my surprise, Hermo.my carries both COSRX and Huxley! So, I got myself a fair share of innisfree, Huxley and COSRX products.
COSRX Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser
I had been watching quite a bit of beauty vlogs recently and most of the beauty vloggers that I know of raved about this gel cleanser from COSRX. The cleanser comes in a clear and see through gel kind of consistency. The product claims to work well for sensitive, acne prone and oily skin type.
I can see why they say it works for acne prone skin as Tea Tree Oil is one of the ingredients listed. The cleanser doesn’t lather into a thick and creamy foam like some other facial cleansers which I previously used. It is more bubbly kind of foam. Fragrance wise, it is tea tree oil scented. If you do not prefer the scent of tea tree oil, perhaps you might not like the scent.
What I liked about this cleanser is that it wasn’t harsh on my skin and it didn’t strip skin moisture either due to the low pH. Having said that, I couldn’t really see much improvements of my skin after using this gel cleanser. It didn’t leave me with a wow impression either. Performance wise, I think Elizabeth Arden Visible Difference Skin Balancing Exfoliating Cleanser works better for me.
So, here’s what I think of COSRX Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser in a nutshell:
2. Gentle on the skin.
3. Doesn’t strip skin moisture.
4. Suitable for acne prone skin due to the tea tree oil ingredient.
1. Availability, can only be purchased online outside Korea.
2. No visible improvement on the skin.
3. Not a big fan of tea tree oil scent.
Overall Rating: 3 out of 5
