What's The Fuss About COSRX Beauty Products?

It’s no secret that the Koreans have an entirely different beauty ball game compared to the rest of the world, and with so many tried and tested K-beauty options out there, these beauty lovers have totally become notoriously picky about skincare—which means that only truly exceptional products reach “cult favorite” status.

Locally, there seems to be one particular K-beauty brand slowly gaining a legion of fans for its no-nonsense skincare approach. You may or you not have already heard of Cosrx, but it’s surely one name to know for it's currently being raved about by many of our favorite beauty enthusiasts.


Where did it begin?

Cosrx is a brand built from more than a decade of experience in Korean cosmetics and product development. What the brand does is that continuously, they gather and understand what the customers want and need in terms of skin problems. And after rigorous analaysis of first-hand data, Cosrx culminates the information into an ingredient-oriented cosmetic brand.

The name Cosrx is derived from the words “cosmetics,” and “rx” which stands for prescription. The brand’s no-nonsense products target and treat specific skin concerns with scientifically-proven ingredients. Their formulations are a dream come true for all minimalists and to those with sensitive skin. It's like being your own dermatologist!


What products are they known for?

Cosrx is a brand dedicated to creating products with high concentrations of actives. The ingredients aren’t complicated either as they truly focus on the root of the issue for all types of skin concerns.

Among the most wanted products in this brand are the hydrocolloid bandages called Acne Pimple Master Patches. This pimple patch will keep you from picking your skin and absorb all the nasty stuff while you go about your business. Some of the tried-and-tested favorites are also the Cosrx AHA 7 Whitehead Power Liquid, Cosrx BHA Skin Returning A-Sol, Cosrx Snail 96 Mucin Essence, Triple C Lightning Liquid and Cosrx Centella Blemish Cream.




Where can you get them locally?

You can shop Cosrx products and the rest of the line online though the online beauty shop/webzine Beauty MNL and Skincare Curator. Selected Watsons branches carry some of their products too!  We suggest you try one product out first, then start branching out to other picks once you find that they work for you (which we're pretty sure they will!) Cheers to glowing skin!
