COSRX One Step Pimple Clear Pad Review
Here is review of yet another COSRX skincare product. I first got to know Cosrx by using their BHA Blackhead Power Liquid (which is amazing). After having a good experience with that product I decided to try out more of their line and ended up getting the One Step Pimple Clear Pads. Even though all of the packaging on the container is in Korean the paper box it comes in has an English description, instructions, and ingredients list

The packaging is actually quite cute. There is a little man drawn on the top of the lid using the pimple pad on his face and he looks fabulous. The tub is actually quite big and sturdy so you can reuse them to store things around the house since they start to add up.

When you unscrew the top there is a thin foam layer sealing the pads. I only unpeeled mine halfway so that I can keep using it to keep the remaining pads fresh and soaked. There is definitely enough serum on each pad, even the very first one I used from the stack was wet enough to use.

One side of the pad is a little bit textured so it does help to very softly exfoliate the skin to increase absorption. The formula is not drying at all and is great before you put on your makeup or skincare.

I started using this because my skin got really sensitive. I use this day and night right after I wash my face. First I wipe one sheet across my entire face with the quilted side then once again with the smooth side. It takes maybe a minute or two to dry and then you can continue on with your face routine. I wear it under my makeup in the mornings and it doesn’t affect how your makeup apply or stays on your face.
Since getting this product, I have noticed way less redness and dry flakes around my acne and a reduction in my acne. The progress isn't immediate but you can notice your acne getting better a little bit day by day. I’m definitely love how these have been both soothing and treating my acne
