This product is the perfect addition to your winter skincare if your skin tends to get quite dry, I bought this because of how soft and supple a it made my face after trying from a friend and it tends to absorb products after it very well. I initially wanted this for toning my uneven skin colour (darker forehead) - so far after a couple of weeks, I feel the change has been honestly quite minimal. Unsure of whether I will buy again but still using it for that extra hydration till it runs out.
This is such a nice light toner. It leaves my skin feeling fresh.
I have an oily t zone, acne prone, sensitive, dehydrated skin. The consistency of this essence is quite gooey. As my skin is quite dehydrated it prefers thinner liquids for better absorption. My skin did NOT absorb this essence quickly. However, I just leave it on and wait ~10 minutes and then it is absorbed. It has definitely helped a little bit with the brightness of my skin and softness, but I wouldn't say it is worth the money. I would recommend trying a different product with niacinamide. I can say that this has NOT broken me out, despite me having acne prone and sensitive skin.
I bought this about 3-4 weeks ago and I noticed the difference after only a few days. Weeks later it is even better. It’s clearer and luminous, the oily parts are less oily and pores smaller. It is honestly the BEST product I have ever used. I have never had good skin but I think I do now
I've used a few of the other essences by COSRX and this would be one of the more fast absorbing ones - especially compared to the snail mucin one. I like that I can apply my other moisturisers straight after it without my skin getting too heavy. But with that said, whether it will improve my skin, I'll have to use it for a longer period of time. And it is definitely more suited for during summer as you would probably want something more moisturising in the winter months.
