CosRx AHA/BHA Clarifying Treatment Toner: Skincare Review

This popular clarifying toner from Korea is considered as one of the best products in its class. Actually, this was purchased by my friend. She made a hasty purchase of this clarifying toner since she wanted to try it. After two days, she decided she didn't like it and stopped, so she bought another toner (different one). I subsequently asked her if I may test this product during my sleepover two weeks ago. Because she no longer uses it, she gave it to me. She may have known I was interested in skincare and makeup since she handed me this item, which I now get an opportunity to assess.

I immediately tested it on my face since I was so ecstatic. We enjoy sleepovers while wearing masks, much like the best buddies in a motion picture. I really enjoyed it because we both love cosmetics.

So what exactly is in this product that has garnered so much attention?

The CosRx AHA/BHA Clarifying Treatment Toner is a daily exfoliant that removes flakes and dead skin cells while maintaining clean pores. This treatment toner regulates excess oil and sebum while moisturizing parched skin since it contains natural clarifying acids. Best for all skin types, but particularly for dry, dull skin that is prone to pore blockage.

It is 10% pyrus malus or apple water enhanced. It prepares our skin for receiving the nutrients and care from other skincare products through this process. The toner is simple to incorporate into our skincare routine because of the spray bottle form. Additionally, it allows us to instantly freshen our faces. Additionally, this product stops the development of blackheads and whiteheads, reduces excessive oil production, and hydrates and moisturizes dry skin.

Key Ingredients

Despite my friend's negative experience with this product, I was eager to try it for myself and did so the same day she gave it to me since I thought that since we had different skin types, it would work well on me. It is a mist toner, therefore I sprayed it on my cotton many times since I felt like I hadn't put it on it enough (so I think this product will only last a month for me). In order to increase absorption, you may also spray it on your hands and then gently press them against your skin, like we do with other facial mists.

Toner is something I like to apply with cotton. I thus started to believe what my friend had said as I slid it across my face, that it felt like I was cleaning my face with damp cotton that had simply been moistened in water. Nothing out of the ordinary struck me. This is presumably a clarifying toner, and it ought to effectively exfoliate dead skin, in my perspective. I initially thought this product was inconsequential, but as I continued to use it, I saw that my complexion become fairer and more dewy. I don't have any apparent blackheads or whiteheads on my skin, so I can't tell whether it really helps, but if you only use this product for a short period of time, you won't really see the improvement it will make to the skin.

Due to the several favorable internet reviews I had read, I had high expectations for this product. Anyway, I'm glad I chose to continue using this toner because that's how I learned about its efficacy on my skin. Definitely, I'll buy it again in the future. I urge everyone who has skin problems to utilize it.
