COSRX is another K-beauty brand that has been taking the world by storm. The name, COSRX, comes from the combination of two kinds of products, cosmetics and prescriptions (Rx). The goal of the brand is to create reliable, hypoallergenic skincare products enriched with active ingredients to help everyone combat their skin concerns today for better skin tomorrow.
Our Supergreaters love COSRX for the same reason they love brands like The Ordinary and The Inkey List. COSRX delivers results with relatively clean formulas, cruelty-free practices, and prices that can’t be beaten. Want to know which COSRX products our community thinks are the best?

1. Acne Pimple Master Patch
Meet the master of acne spot treatments, COSRX’s Acne Pimple Master Patch. Each $6 pack comes with 24 round, hydrocolloid patches in three different sizes to help protect acne from further irritations and speed up the healing process. Simply cleanse your face and add a pimple patch to the affected area. Overnight, the patch will extract bacteria and puss from within the pimple, which will show up as a white dot on the patch. Treating acne has never been so easy!

2. Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence
Letting a snail glide around your face, leaving a trail of mucus doesn’t sound appealing but snail mucin actually contains a lot of healthy skin benefits. COSRX’s Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence contains 96.3% of Snail Secretion Filtrate, which protects the skin from moisture loss and improves skin elasticity. This $23 light-weight essence is also very viscous. If you rub it between your fingers and then pull them apart you’ll see it string like cheesy pizza, but don’t worry, it absorbs quickly into the skin with no sticky residue.

3. Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser
You probably learned in health class or science class that bad things happen when you disturb your body’s natural pH system. That’s why COSRX created the Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser with a slightly acidic pH of about 5.3 to 6.3, which happens to be the pH range of your skin. The result is a non-irritating yet effective cleanser you can use morning or night (Don’t let the name confuse you) or as a body wash.

4. Salicylic Acid Daily Gentle Cleanser
If you have acne-prone skin, instead of trying the Low pH Cleanser try COSRX’s Salicylic Acid Daily Gentle Cleanser. It gently removes impurities and excess skin while fighting off acne for soft, smooth skin without the stripping feeling. This $13 cleanser also contains a gentle dose of BHA that is a safe gentle exfoliator to use every single day.

5. Centella Blemish Cream
After you safely extract all impurities from your zits using the Ance Pimple Master Patch, apply a thick layer of COSRX’s Centella Blemish Cream to the affected area. This $21 cream makes red spots and dark spots, and acne scars disappear. The centella and other soothing ingredients in this cream help calm inflamed and irritated skin. Be sure to use this as a spot treatment and not an all-over moisturizer. Our SGers tried both and it works best in moderation.

6. Aloe Soothing Sun Cream SPF50 PA+++
After cleansing, the most important part of any skincare routine is applying sunscreen. COSRX’s Aloe Soothing Sun Cream with SPF 50 doesn’t just protect you from the sun, but the aloe in this sunscreen also provides an intense layer of hydration so when you put it on it feels like you’re putting on moisturizer. And with no white cast, this $16 SPF is perfect for your every day sun protection needs.
