    Is it just me or is everybody super impressed with COSRX products? In my opinion, that brand makes some of the best products in the market for a little price, kudos to them

      That does seem to be the general opinion of the brand! It’s not easy to come across one that consistently makes great and affordable products! Kudos to them indeed :)

    I also use the Cosrx advanced snail 96 mucin. I feel like it helped with my acne and scars, but for some reason my skin still has a lot of texture. When I apply products during my regimen my skin is soon smooth but when I look into the mirror I can see the texture in the bathroom and sun lighting. I have no idea what it is and acids don’t seem to help. They are pimples that’s for sure. Do you know how I could get rid of that?

      I meant to say *aren’t pimples

      Just curious but what type of acids are you using? AHAs like glycolic acid and lactic acid can help remove dead skin cells and smooth out the skin. Unfortunately I’m not a dermatologist so I can’t say for sure what the correct treatment should be, just that AHAs have helped smooth out my skin.

          From my understanding of BHA, it’s helpful to clear out our pores and prevent acne, but if you’re looking for smoother skin, you might want to try AHA (glycolic acid, lactic acid, or the gentler mandelic acid) which helps remove dead skin and improve skin cell turnover. You’ll want to start off slow and definitely make sure to apply SPF in the morning as AHAs can make your skin more sensitive to the sun.

          I’m thinking about using the Cosrx aha 7. How long should I keep it on my skin before I continue with the rest of my regimen

        • Jenny

          Some people say to wait at least 15-20 minutes for the actives to work, but others say no waiting is required. I personally wait only 2-3 minutes, but according to this super helpful guide, you’ll want to start with no wait time to minimize any potential irritation, then work your way up.

    I actually adore how minimalist, clinical and straightforward the packaging is (i color coded with stickers on top to set them apart), but its defnitely a contrast from all my cute packaging and don’t mind a cute little Mr. Rx peeking at me either. >_< Ahhh, I just started using the stuff after no allergy reaction and I am freaking amazed at how it made active breakouts less red and flatter.

      That’s such a smart idea! The bottles do look so similar that I often get them mixed up. Glad to hear this is working so well for you!
