In a Few Words
An overnight mask that provides intensive hydration with refreshing moisture.

Cosrx Ultimate Moisturizing Honey Overnight Mask has a gentle formula suitable for dry, rough and sensitive skinh soothes dry skin and heals rough and flaky patches. The mask can be used several ways:
1. As an overnight mask : Use the skin care routine before bed. Apply a decent amount on the skin.
2. As a wash-off mask : Apply a generous amount of honey mask and leave it on for 15 minutes. Wash off with toner or tepid water.
3. As a cream (in the morning) : Use in the end of the basic skin care routine and proceed with your normal makeup step.
The Cosrx Ultimate Moisturizing Honey Overnight Mask has comes in either a 60 mL plasic tub or tube and sells for about $15.00.

This mask was … fine. As far as overnight masks go, it’s very light in texture and hydration. I initially bought it because I don’t like heavy lotions, but it’s thinness is the ultimate reason why I dislike it. This mask has a gel like texture, feels like nothing in the face, and isn’t extremely hydrating or heavy. Normally, I don’t like products that feel very occlusive so when I found an overnight mask that was so gel, I thought it would be the perfect fit for me! But it just doesn’t pack the punch of creamy masks like the Cosrx Ultimate Nourishing Overnight Mask or Laneige Water Sleeping Mask. It turns out I really like to be able to still feel the overnight mask on my face the next morning because I feel like my face is staying hydrated all night. The creamier sleeping masks also make my skin feel softer and plumper than this mask did.

This mask might be for you If you aren’t very dry and are looking for an lightweight sleeping pack.

CosRX – Low pH Good Morning Cleanser – Review

In a Few Words
A basic gel cleanser appropriate for most skin types.

Cosrx Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser suitable for all skin types – including dry and sensitive. The cleanser has a pH of 5 so it doesn’t disrupt the skin’s acid mantle and doesn’t over dry or strip you skin of its natural oils. It is formulated with tea tree oil and a form of BHA (Betaine Salicylate) to help control breakouts, minimize the appearance of pores, and exfoliate.

The Takeaway

I bought my Low pH Good Morning Cleanser on Amazon, I used entire bottle, and it lasted me about 3 months. I used this cleanser as a second cleanse in the evening or as a first cleanse in the morning. Most retailers say that it can be used to remove makeup, but I would’t recommend that. I like to use oil cleansers to remove makeup, but I did try the Low pH Good Morning Cleanser a few times and found that it didn’t really breakup a full face of makeup and it burned my eyes.

I have dehydrated, acne prone skin and, even though the pH is right with the product, it did leave my skin feeling a little dry and tight. I tended to save this for days my skin was calm because it could be a little too much for my face – I usually prefer a creamy cleanser (like the Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser) for a second cleanse. I did mostly like Low pH Good Morning Cleanser because helped me maintain a clear face and a smaller appearance of my pores, but I didn’t really enjoy using it.

I love the ingredients, pH, and price of this product. I think this is a budget friendly, basic cleanser for anyone with normal to oily skin – dry and dehydrated faces might want to stay away from this.

This would be a great cleanser for most people with normal to oily skin.

Retinol night. I like to use a sleeping pack on the nights I use a retinol just to get some extra hydration. I’m kind of ‘meh’ on this one, what’s your favorite sleeping pack/mask?
