oily t-zone, acne prone (chin area) & redness

Pros:
- feels so gentle and nice
- effectively removes face make up

Cons:
- pricey

I've used plenty of cleansers and nothing compares to how gentle and soft this one feels. It's like cleansing your make up off your face without stripping the natural oils. A little pricey for a small bottle but I …

Background: oily t zone, acne prone & redness

**I'm actually using the 0.2% version of this (i couldnt find a review for it).

Not sure how this is working for meyet. I bought this with the intention to help reduce my acne since retinol is supposed to help with the rate of cell turnover on our skin. So the faster the skin sheds the dead skin cells, the less of a chance …

Background: oily t zone, acne prone & redness

I'm not really sure if this product brightened up my skin in the dark spots - like the shadow around my mouth. This serum has brightened the rest of my face though...to an extent. I don't see too much benefit from using this so as soon as I finish the bottle, I won't repurchase to see how my skin looks without it in my …

Treatments (Face) - COSRX - Acne Pimple Master Patch

4.0
Created with Sketch.

6 months ago

These are AMAZING! Pimples are so flat the next day after the gunk has been sucked out. Although it's funny because these seem to only work for me AFTER i've popped the pimple. Otherwise, the pus and oils and debris do not get soaked up onto the sticker. Not sure if anyone else experiences this.
