I can’t remember the exact date I first heard about the legend of COSRX Blackhead nguồn Liquid but I vày remember the exact moment I decided khổng lồ finally give this cult product a try — six weeks, two days and three hours ago to lớn be exact. It seemed like nearly every skincare blogger was singing its high praises.

COSRX, which stands for cosmetics + RD (prescription), is a Korean based brand that creates its products directly from the needs và feedback of their very dedicated customers. As Charlotte mentioned, their Good Morning Gel Cleanser was crowdsourced from customer feedback. How cool is that? 


So what exactly is this heaven sent liquid và why is every beauty blogger raving about it? The first thing you should know is that this hàng hóa contains 4% BHA, that’s short of Beta Hydroxy Acid (sounds scary, but it’s not).

BHAs clean pores by penetrating deep inside of them khổng lồ get rid of, exfoliate, dead skin cells trapped inside. Since BHAs are oil-soluble they are able to lớn penetrate through oil, natural and otherwise, to lớn truly dissolve it và clean out clogged pores. They also have amazing anti-bacterial và anti-inflammatory properties.

And while products containing BHAs are typically prescribed for individuals with oily & breakout prone skin, I actually have dry skin and am still able to use this product. So all my fellow dry skin peeps it’s safe to keep reading. 

The most common forms of BHAs are Salicylic acid, if you’ve ever used a hàng hóa for acne you’ve definitely encountered Salicylic acid before, và Betaine salicylate — it’s less widely known but just as powerful cousin. The BHA Blackhead power nguồn Liquid uses Betaine salicylate as it’s main active ingredient. What"s great about Betaine salicylate is that it provides time released exfoliation, meaning it exfoliates the skin long after the product is removed and evaporated.

Other stand out ingredients include white willow bark & B5 vitamin, which has great moisturizing and anti-wrinkle properties. It’s also paraben miễn phí and contains mainly naturally derived ingredients. Win! 


Chemical Exfoliants

As we all know exfoliating, removing your skin’s dead skin cells, is super important. Consistently exfoliating, at least 1-3 times per week, will drastically improve the skin’s overall health and appearance. Furthermore, exfoliating allows your skin lớn better absorb the other products in your routine & helps them vị their job more effectively.

Manual exfoliants, think any of the scrub products currently in your shower, differ from chemical exfoliants, such as COSRX’s, in one major way — they only remove what’s on the surface of the skin. This means manual exfoliants are, unfortunately, far less effective.

Chemical exfoliants on the other hand, because of their texture and active ingredients, can go beneath the surface of the skin to lớn help shed more dead skin cells và even promote cell regeneration.

Love the simple packaging of COSRX BHA Blackhead power nguồn Liquid. No frills. Just great ingredients.

How You Use It

The first thing you will notice about this hàng hóa once it hits your skin is its water-like texture. While there are no added fragrances there is a slight, but oh so faint, chemical-like smell — thankfully it fades after about two seconds. What I love most is that the texture of the product is nothing like I expected — it isn’t greasy or slimy & is only slightly thicker than water.

After double-cleansing, and toning, I apply two pumps of the liquid to lớn my fingertips và gently pat it all over my face, avoiding the eye area và including the neck, letting the product naturally absorb into the skin. I skip using cốt tông pads since I over up wasting hàng hóa that way.

I have read several reviews that mention people’s hands or fingers starting khổng lồ peel from directly applying the product. I haven’t experienced this but if you do, then I recommend applying it with a cotton pad.

I also want to lưu ý that various sources will recommend you forgo toning and apply this hàng hóa to your skin directly after cleansing. I’ve tried both ways và haven’t a noticed a difference in the effects of the product. But since I really lượt thích the feeling of a squeaky clean và hydrated face (aka cleansing plus toning) I’ve stuck with toning before applying the Blackhead power Liquid.

It has great slip and consistency is not too thick or thin!

The hàng hóa absorbs super quickly into the skin. After waiting about 15-20 minutes, I then move on to lớn the next steps in my routine. The reason you want lớn wait before using the rest of your skincare products is that the time allows the product to work its magic và fully penetrate the skin. That way you get its full benefits. It’s recommended you wait about 30 minutes before applying the rest of your products, however I typically don’t have that much time before I have lớn rush out the door or pass out for bed.

So far I’ve been using this sản phẩm in both my AM and PM routine. Full disclosure, I do not have sensitive skin or any active breakouts at the moment, so I feel using this product twice a day is totally safe for my skin. But if you’re new khổng lồ chemical exfoliants or have sensitive skin, I would start off with using this product once a day 1-3 times a week and slowly incorporating it more often. If you’re going outside, remember to lớn use sunscreen afterward applying the power liquid because chemical exfoliants vị sensitize the skin!



After about six weeks of using it I absolutely love this product! While I don’t currently have any breakouts, the hyperpigmentation, aka dark spots, & the small bumps I vì chưng have are definitely less noticeable. My overall complexion is a lot brighter, the texture of my skin is smoother and my pores, especially around my nose, are visibly smaller. I’ve definitely have a pre-spring glow going on!

If you’re going to add one sản phẩm to your routine, I’d make it this one. Whether you’re suffering from acne, blackheads or enlarged pores, this a trò chơi changer product that will definitely help.



At $21 for a 100mL bottle this is a complete steal. You only need a few pumps per use so this form size is sure lớn last you at least a few months — even if you use it twice a day lượt thích myself.
