The COSRX Acne Pimple Master Patch is one of the brand’s most popular best sellers. The 24 pack of patches (or dots) come in 3 different sizes to treat small, medium, and large acne breakouts. The sticker-like acne patches help the skin’s natural healing process. The only step: when a spot surfaces, place an acne patch onto the breakout. As the patches are clear and thin, they can be worn alone or make-up can be applied on top of the patches. Rather than irritate the blemish during the day or while you’re sleeping, the pimple patch treats skin without exposing it to the elements. Acne patches absorb any excess oil and kick-start the healing process by providing the spot with a contained environment. The COSRX Clear Fit Master Patch comes in an 18 pack of thinner patches with a matte finish, making them undetectable and seamless for round-the-clock breakout protection. Day or night, rain or shine, these patches have acne spots covered.
COSRX’s Toner collection consists of toners that prep the skin with AHA BHA, centella, or galactomyces (ferment extract). COSRX AHA/BHA Clarifying Treatment Toner is suitable for beginners and experts alike looking for AHA skincare or BHA skincare. COSRX AHA BHA Toner is formulated with salicylic acid (BHA), glycolic acid (AHA), and apple fruit water to help slough off dead skin for a glowing complexion. Made with an effortless spray applicator, mild exfoliation, and 11 ingredient recipe, this COSRX toner treats both blackheads and whiteheads for clearer, brighter skin. Why choose between an AHA toner and a BHA toner when COSRX makes a polished combination? For more sensitive skin, the COSRX Galactomyces Alcohol-Free Toner provides hydration and skin barrier reinforcement without the potential drying effects of alcohol. The COSRX Galactomyces Toner harnesses the power of fermented extracts to strengthen, firm and plump skin. The COSRX Centella Water Alcohol-Free Toner is designed for oily blemish-prone skin to keep it hydrated and balanced. COSRX’s toner is concentrated with Centella asiatica to repair damaged skin and soothe breakouts. For double the acne care, pair with the COSRX BHA Blackhead Power Liquid, a 4% BHA to improve pore condition and blemishes. The centella toner and blackhead duo will soothe breakouts and keep skin balanced. As toners or treatments or both, these toners effectively multitask.
One of the most celebrated ingredients in Korean Beauty Products, snail mucin is featured in COSRX’s essences, creams and sun creams. COSRX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence highlights snail mucin’s strengthening and healing properties. Apply the essence after cleansing to reveal bright and repaired skin. Although light in texture, COSRX Advanced Snail 92 All In One Cream is highly concentrated as snail secretion filtrate is the first ingredient listed. COSRX Snail Cream is designed to plump and smooth fine lines, and provide anti-aging benefits to damaged skin. By infusing snail mucin into a lightweight cream form, the skin absorbs hydration and repairing ingredients in one step. COSRX has also incorporated snail mucin into their sun creams; the COSRX Shield Fit Snail Essence Sun has SPF 50+ PA +++ protection plus snail secretion filtrate. This lightweight sunscreen protects the skin from UV damage while boosting firmness and elasticity. Adding snail mucin into a skin care routine can ease common skin concerns.
