My Cosrx Skin Haul

Cosrx is a cult favorite among Korean skin care fans like me. 

To achieve healthy looking skin is one of my targets when I became a fan of AB Skin Care. I'm expecting from this brand could help a lot. Cosrx offers different range of products
COSRX means efficacious cosmetics that are RX-ed with natural skin care components based on dermatology. What does Rx mean? It has meanings of Prescription; Countermeasure, Treatment, Disposal, Solution. Cosrx is known for using few ingredients but ensures high quality and effective extracts that addresses different skin concerns.
Cosrx Skin Routine
My Cosrx order arrived 11 business days after my payment. This transaction was my first International order! I'm afraid at first if what would happen when I claim my package to our local post office. I ordered outside the country since by that time, there's no stock of these 3 liquids to Cosrx Philippines Official Seller.

This time I got mine from RoseRoseShop of Korea.
  • COSRX BHA Blackhead Power Liquid US$11.60 
  • COSRX AHA 7 Whitehead Power Liquid US$9.70 
  • COSRX AHA/BHA Clarifying Treatment Toner  US$10.20
It was way cheaper than other online stores here in Philippines even I need to pay for the postal fee and shipping. So how do I incorporate Cosrx to my Skin Care Routine? I often forgot to finish all those 7-10 Skin care routine and after removing my makeup and cleansing, I start of with:

  1. First is the COSRX AHA/BHA Clarifying Treatment Toner which is the pH adjuster step. I wait 20-30 mins before proceeding to next step. Adjusters are important when using actives such as the:
  2. COSRX BHA Blackhead Power Liquid and 
  3. COSRX AHA 7 Whitehead Power Liquid
I only use these products during PM. So do I mean that I do not have a morning skin routine? Yup, during AM I only use toner + sunscreen before applying makeup since I have limited time to prepare before my work. It takes around 2 hours to finish my PM Skin Routine because I have to wait for the 20-30 minute absorption time.

What is BHA and AHA?

BHA (Beta Hydroxy Acid) - Best for oily skin type and for pore deep cleaning. BHA also contains salicylic acids which makes skin dry but helps acne to dry up too!
AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acid) - helps in removing dead skin while improving dermal thickness, collagen density and getting more elastic fibers for the skin and best for dry skin.  (source)

I use the later alternately (BHA & AHA Power Liquid). I also tried using the three products in a row and examined how will my skin reacts. Another blog post link will be updated for my feedback about these products.
