[Review] Cosrx Natural BHA Skin Returning A-Sol
Hello beauty.. I am pretty sure that you know about this Cosrx Brand. Cosrx became very famous lately. The first time I heard about this brand is in Female Daily. There are many good review about this product. Like I told you, I had the worst break out in January but decided not going to the doctor, instead, I tried this COSRX Natural BHA Skin Returning A-Sol.
They have concerns in Skin Trouble · Adult Acne & Scar · Pore & Blackhead · Dark Spot & Eye Wrinkle. They also fill in their product with nature ingredient. Yeay, That sounds good for me 🙂 .
Personally, I have ever used :
- COSRX Centella Blemish Cream
- COSRX Ultimate Moisturizing Honey Overnight Mask
- COSRX Ultimate Moisturizing Rice Overnight Mask
- COSRX Advanced Snail All in One Cream
- COSRX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence
- COSRX AHA Whitehead Power Liquid
- COSRX Natural BHA Skin Returning A-Sol
- COSRX BHA Natural Emulsion
- COSRX Low PH Good Morning Cleanser
It is pretty much right? All because I feel so comfortable with the Cosrx product. Nature and low irritation.
Cosrx Natural BHA Skin Returning A-Sol
“Natural BHA Skin Returning A-Sol is a skin-type solution product that solves the daunting problem of complex skin trouble with a combination of Propolis, AHA, natural BHA, and natural moisture-retention ingredients, as well as helping with control of sebum and clearing of dead skin cell.
Natural BHA Skin Returning A-Sol contains little oil, helping with managing sebum and pores, to give the skin cleanliness with no shine or trouble.”- COSRX
Like what Cosrx said, this product contain BHA (betaine salicylate) and AHA (lactic and glycolic acid), not specifically BHA like its name. It is good because AHA can remove the dead skin, so it can help penetration of BHA. This product also contain 60% of Black Bee Propolis. Wow…
Propolis Extract, Alcohol, Butylene Glycol, Sodium Lactate, Lactic Acid, water, Glycolic Acid, Betaine Salicylate, Sodium Hyaluronate, Panthenol, Allantoin, Cassia Obtusifolia Seed Extract, 1,2-Hexanediol, Ethyl Hexanediol, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil
As an acne prone skin, I am happy when I see propolis extract is the main of this product. As we know that propolis have antimicrobial properties that make it good especially for acne prone skin, which is good for me 🙂 . Propolis have good capability for wound healing, even it comes to breakouts.
The second one ingredient is alcohol. For those of you that have dry/dehydrated skin or sensitives with alcohol may be do not like this product. But for us who do not have a problem with alcohol may be love this product, because it can help penetration of the product. And for me personally, I can say that product not drying my skin at all, because the product is also contain sodium hyaluronate and glycolic acid and the anti-irritant allantoin. The product is also contain betaine salicylate, a BHA which can be anti-inflammation.
According to CosDNA, the only one ingredient that is potentially as acne trigger is butylene glycol which very low scoring 1. If you have a problem with butylene glycol, may be you don’t like this product. But butylene glycol contain in almost every asian skincare product, so if don’t have a problem before, you probably will not have a problem with this. But please do the patch test first.
While, according to Skincarisma, it contains panthenol as promote healing wound. And it uses betaine salicylate and tea tree oil as the acne fighter. It also contains AHA as exfoliating agent and anti-aging which are lactic acid and glycolic acid.
According to Wishtrend, PH level of this product is around 4.3. The concentration of acid, AHA (glycolic and lactic acid) and BHA (betaine salicylate) are too low. Hence, this Cosrx Natural BHA Skin Returning A-Sol can not qualified as exfoliating toner.
How to Use
1. In mornings/evenings after facial wash spread thinly on the troubled areas, areas with much dead skin cell, and areas with much sebum.
2. Tap gently with fingertips to absorb.
The texture is very light and easily absorbed.
As I have mentioned before, I suffered a severe breakout from January-March. there were a lot of bumps and cystic acne on my cheeks and chin. it feels very itch, painful and sore. I was very excited after saw many good review about it. But unfortunately. It didn’t do the same thing with me. It almost had no progress. But I still tried, and after 2 week showed the change. The cystic acne slowly reduced. The bumps turn into acne then reduced. I took 1,5-2 months to cleaned my face from the acne, cystic and bumps. It took a bit longer time than the others. But its okay, I satisfied with the result. I have to say that I am in love with this product. 🙂
I bought this COSRX BHA Skin Returning A-sol about IDR 185.000,-
Yes!!! I’m ordering my second bottle right now 🙂
NB: Please always do the patch test before use a new product into your skin! 🙂
