COSRX Salicylic Acid Daily Gentle Cleanser Review

Zaseeya Kamal Zahra

Every skincare regimen starts with the cleanser, and beginning with COSRX Salicylic Acid Daily Gentle Cleanser might just be the perfect start for many! However, its strength in eliminating excess oils may not be gentle enough for some combination types. In this review, I will tell you about my experience with this product.

Packaging and Description

Like most COSRX products, the packaging is minimal, with simple red accents. Most other products in this line (which contains Salicylic Acid) have a similar look. When I received it, it did not come with outer packaging and it was just the cleanser tube; however, that is not of much concern since the back has extensive directions, the ingredients list, and warnings in both Korean and English.

Containing 150 ml of product, this product is expected to last around three months if used twice a day. Only a pea-sized amount of the white foaming cream is required to cover the face, and a significant amount of sebum is washed away in each session.

Experience 

My personal experience with this product is mixed. Harnessing the power of 0.5% Salicylic Acid, it greatly decreased the frequency of pimple breakouts I experienced during summertime. However, if my skin ever felt even a bit less oily than usual, I felt hesitant to apply the product since its strength is overpowering. While oily skin types may not notice it, there are some drying effects experienced if you have combination skin with some dry spots. Hence, I have changed up my use of it to target specific areas as winter approached.

Ingredients

As announced in the caution section, this product is not recommended for use for people with damaged skin or people who are allergic to aspirin. There are also some ingredients that are not suitable for people suffering from fungal acne. With all that said, some people may be pleased with the product as it doesn’t contain any kind of alcohol.

Do check this very extensively clarified ingredients list before making a decision: https://cosmily.com/products/cosrx-salicylic-acid-daily-gentle-cleanser

Conclusion

It’s safe to say that COSRX Salicylic Acid Daily Gentle Cleanser does a good job, but the issues it poses makes it an average choice compared to other products out there, meaning I’ll probably not be repurchasing it.

Hello! In this review, I want to tell you about my experience with CosRX Aloe Soothing Sun Cream SPF50+ PA+++. The sunscreen is much more vital than one thinks, and leaving it out of your skincare regimen is a big no-no. However, it’s understandable why people feel reluctant to wear sunscreen all the time: it just doesn’t blend ...

The moisturizer plays a crucial role in a person's skincare regimen, and this product is a strong contender for that role. Though COSRX's Aloe Vera Oil-Free Moisture Cream doesn't fully succeed to meet all the requirements of my combination skin, it does put up a strong performance.
