So obviously I've been using a lot of Cosrx products lately thanks the hell Tosowoong's Brightening Propolis Essence wrought on my skin. The clarifying toner and A-Sol (and Murad clarifying mask) helped get rid of all but the most stubborn cysts on my jaw, which is where this cream comes in. I'd play it cool, but really I was just desperate to get rid of them. They're ugly. They hurt. I'm ready to be done with this stupid breakout. Mostly, I want back the near flawless skin I had been sporting since switching to asian skincare 4 months ago. So after reading several glowing reviews - particularly in regards to cystic acne - I eagerly ordered this hoping it would be the answer to my prayers. Unfortunately, it did not immediately lay waste to the remaining cysts. It did shrink them though and that's something. With nightly use over the last week they're almost gone now, having shrunk down to the size of BB's. I'm sure with another week's use they'll be completely gone. That probably doesn't sound like much of a rave, but it's WAY better than all the other spot treatments I tried. But here's the part I like the most about this cream: it doesn't dry my skin out. As someone with dry skin who uses drying actives (tretinoin, for one) the last thing I need is something that dries my skin out even more. Because a spot treatment that dries my skin out into a scaly, flakey mess is a spot treatment I can't use long enough to get any real benefit from. *That* is where this spot treatment really shines. I can slather a nice layer of this on after my Curology at night and in the morning my skin won't be totally wrecked, just healed.
