COSRX - Korean face care for sensitive skin
Cosrx is a fairly new high-end cosmetics brand from Korea that has literally conquered the global beauty world in the blink of an eye and has now become an absolute trend brand.
The strange-sounding brand name is made up of the two words "Cos" and "Rx,". Cos stands for Cosmetics, while Rx is the common abbreviation for medical prescriptions. This combination of nourishing cosmetics and effective ingredients tailored to individual skin types is the cornerstone of all Cosrx products.
The minimalist formulas are based on as few as possible and, above all, natural but highly effective ingredients so as not to stress sensitive skin.
The selection of Cosrx products is based on the Korean skin care tradition, the so-called Korean Beauty. Not without reason: Korean women are namely famous for their flawlessness with particularly even, firm and pure, radiant skin.
Face care routine: Effective layering with Cosrx skin care products.
Korean women specifically care for their face in 8-10 skin care steps daily for a porcelain complexion. In this so-called "layering", different cleansing and skin care products are applied one after the other in a fixed sequence. The care steps serve as thorough preparation for the next step. This allows the high-quality active ingredients of the products to penetrate particularly deeply into the lower layers of the skin, where they have a correspondingly intensive effect.
The Cosrx range consists of an extensive range of active ingredient-oriented articles, such as face cleanser, face peeling, facial toner, essences, serums, face cream, masks, moisturizers, facial suncreen and ampoules. All products are tailored to the respective skin needs.
The perfect face cleaning with Cosrx
Step 1: Cleanser
As a first step, the particularly skin-friendly, gentle gel cleanser Low pH Good Morning is recommended. This gently removes skin impurities and already open areas are disinfected by the tea tree oil.
Cosrx's AC Collection Calming Foam Cleanser contains Centella Asiatica and Salicylic Acid, among other ingredients, and is a perfect cleansing product for anyone prone to blemishes.
Step 2: Exfoliation with liquids
With Cosrx's AHA 7 Whitehead Power Liquid, your skin is gently exfoliated thanks to the acids it contains, and dead skin cells are removed without firm rubbing.
Cosrx's Two in One Poreless Power Liquid is an oil-fighting liquid that eliminates clogged pores and shrinks them.
Cosrx BHA Blackhead Power Liquid is designed to shrink pores and remove the dead skin cells that sit deep within pores. Apply thinly to affected areas of the face with lots of blackheads and heavy sebum production every morning or evening after cleansing.
Step 3: Toner
Cosrx AHA/BHA Clarifying Treatment Toner soothes, refreshes, clarifies and balances the skin's optimal pH. With its gentle and skin-neutral formula, the toner refreshes and moisturizes and helps prevent the formation of milia and blackheads.
Put a finely dosed amount of AC Collection Calming Liquid Mild Toner on a cotton pad. This contains the ingredient Centella, which removes impurities and pimples while healing the skin.
The AC Collection Calming Liquid Intensive is an instant effect toner with the active ingredients beta salicylate (BHA), glycolic acid and lactic acid (AHA) to heal acne while keeping your large pores clean and clear.
Cosrx's One Step Green Hero Calming Pads are toner-moistened cleansing pads that gently but effectively exfoliate facial skin while caring for your sensitive skin.
Step 4: Essence
A clarifying Cosrx toner is followed by one of the most important steps in Korean facial care: the so-called "Essence" based on fermented yeast cultures, which Cosrx has perfected with the Galactomyces 95 Tone Balancing Essence.
Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence, which is 96% valuable natural snail secretion extract, has an unusual formula that is especially effective for dry and mature skin.
Step 5: Patch
The Cosrx Acne Pimpel Master Patch is the secret weapon against unpleasant pimples, blemishes, milia and blackheads!
Cosrx's Clear Fit Master Patches are specifically designed to treat blemishes such as uncomfortable, active pimples.
Cleanse your skin before applying the patch. The blemish to be treated must be dry and covered without creams and lotions.
Step 6: Moisturizer
Cosrx's Oil Free Ultra Moisturizing Lotion is designed to be the perfect combination with popular AHA and BHA products to soothe and nourish sensitive, irritated or freshly exfoliated skin.
Cosrx's Ultimate Nourishing Rice Overnight Mask moisturizes and transforms uneven skin tone into healthy-looking, radiant skin.
Ultimate Moisturizing Honey Overnight Mask has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties and powerful healing properties, soothes red and blemished skin and reduces a puffy face.
