[Please check seller is either Amazon SG, Amazon Asia-Pacific Holdings, COSRX SG or The Beauty Workroom] The pH of this product is between 5.0-6.0 which sits very close to the pH level of human skin and the correct PH for Betaine Salicylate (milder version of Salicylic acid) to work effectively.
Does not overly dry skin and stripping it of all the natural oils when cleaning which a mild tea tree scent. Helps regulate oil secretion and with acne skin.
Only recently, I have been reading how most skin products we use, are alkaline and it can cause damage to the skin. I honestly wish, I knew this long time ago! I've had all my life combination skin. At time too dry, at time too oily. And acne was part of my nightmares too. (still is, but not so serious) I decided to adjust my skin care routine completely, and looked for Vitamin C & Hyaluronic Acid products, and then the low ph products. I even use some snail moisturisers to care for the damages on the skin. Since then, I've notice and incredible improvement on my skin complexion. It looks healthier, smoother, more even and the dry patches or oily patches are pretty much gone. My acne is mostly caused by food and period, as long as I don't abuse on sugars and fats, my skin feels perfect. This gel was a tremendous addition on my skin care routine. I really wish I knew long ago, about the ph levels of the skin and products that affect/improve it. It would have probably saved me hundreds of wasted pounds in useless products. Definitely, definitely recommed this.
I'm 19 and have tried everything imaginable to get rid of my acne; Olay, neutrogena, organic products, vichy, clean & clear, etc. None of them worked. Then discovered Korean skin care, and all the great things I read about it were absolutely true. I did my research because I didn't want to waste money on products that wouldn't work and I finally decided on this cleanser (along with corsx pimple pads and recently son&park beauty water). Best thing i've ever bought. Before I had pimples randomly on my face, and my cheek areas were always red and somewhat spotty looking? I also had those small bumps on my forehead, they were red but just made my skin like textured and uneven. Ive used this cleanser for about a week and all my skin problems have been cut in half! My skin has never been so smooth and even! I wish I had taken a before and after picture. Must have cleanser for anyone with acne or uneven skin!!
TIP!!!: If you aren't wearing any make up when you go to wash your face, just using this face wash a(nd then your toners, moisturizer etc) is fine. However, if you are wearing make-up make sure you DOUBLE CLEANSE! You have to used an oil based cleanser first (ponds cold cream is the most reliable thing ever) to melt the make up off and then use your face wash! If you skip the oil cleanse you'll just be swirling around wet make up on your face so it's not actually cleaning it.
I'm writing this review from my friend's account that purchased it for me, btw.
I got this after seeing recommendations for it all over the place from people who have been desperately trying to clear acne, and I have to say, it's soooo worth it. I'm 28 with hormonal acne, and this, along with a retinol moisturiser (by poppy austin), has been absolutely amazing in helping my skin calm tf down. It's helped stave off redness, irritation, blemishes, and flakiness, and it doesn't dry out my skin! I love it.
The smell is obviously tea tree oil, but I'm cool with that. I like the smell. I usually wash with this twice a day (morning and night), and it's been super helpful.
Love this cleanser, first one that doesn't dry out my skin (rosacea prone). Smells strongly of tea tree oil, you like it or not, but does the job perfectly. A little goes a long way (you only need a pea size drop to wash your face and neck as it foams well) . Just wishing there was some minis for travel. Recommended ++
A gel cleanser that purifies the skin without the stripping feeling. I have normal to combination skin especially on my T-zone area, this cleanser balances my pH levels and regulate sebum production. 150ml lasts about 2-3 months. I use it twice a day.
If you have issues with black or white heads, try this cleanser. Remember, a cleanser doesn’t always have to foam.
I have been using for several months, but this is my first purchase from Amazon. It took 2 days to arrive in a clean, good package with no faults.
When I first tried this out I was really disappointed that it was drying out my skin but recently I decided to give it another go. It's a great cost effective gel based cleanser as you only need to use a pea sized amount each time. Wet your hands first, then add a bit of gel and rub your hands together, this will make it lather up beautifully to wash your face . I double cleanse in the evenings and this works well to remove traces of my balm cleanser. It's quick and easy to use in the mornings as well when I am in a rush and don't want to use my cream cleansers with a flannel. The key is to moisture properly when using this face wash otherwise you will end up with dryness. I always follow this with a hydrating toner spritz, hyaluronic serum and then moisturiser. If my skin is extra dry I add in squalene oil as well.
I first discovered the cosrx ph balancing cleanser after seeing videos on the importance of the right ph on the skin...I soon realised that I could tell the difference between the way this cleanser left my skin compared to other cleansers. I have the typical breakouts that occur due to hormones, I have found that over the 4 years which I have been using it, it has significantly helped to calm down the upcoming spots and reduced the time that redness would last. I would recommend this to anyone and especially for those who get hormonal acne...when washing your face if you just message the area you expect the spot to appear it, it significantly reduces tenderness and redness the next day! best cleanser i've ever used and I will continue having it as my foundation in my skin care routine:)
Good quality, product have tea tree which is disinfecting and calming your skin. But I put 4* as its not the perfect for dry sensative skin. After this my skin dry, I need put some oil or cream immediately.
