In the spirit of Valentine, I decided to share my new love with you today. His name is COSRX NATURAL BHA SKIN RETURNING A SOL. One of the down sides of curating products can be the occasional acne bump here and there. I usually have my arsenal of go to products lined up ready to attack any unwanted visitor to my face and usually they get rid of them in no time. I was fine with my line up, and they serve my well so I didn’t have an urgent need to update but a series of fortunate events led me to discover this toner and it was love at first pat.
NATURAL BHA SKIN RETURNING A-SOL (CLAIM)
This is a product that contains natural BHA to control pills while helping to clear recurring pimples. A non-drying acne treatment solution for sensitive skin.Natural BHA SKIN returning A Solar is a skin type solution product that resolves the daunting problem if complex skin trouble with a combination of Propolis, AHA, Natural BHA and natural moisture retention ingredients, as well as some helping with controlling sebum and clearing of dead skin cells. It contains a little oil helping with managing sebum and pores to give the skin cleanliness with no shine.
PROPOLIS EXTRACT: It was once considered a mystical cure for troubled skin.Chemist recognize it as having potential sun protective function as many formulas for acne contain propolis as an active ingredient for healing and cleansing skin. It is also moisturizing and can help smooth skin.
LACTIC ACID: It is an AHA acid occurring in soured milk and other foods made through a process of fermentation. It is my favorite acid because it is a multi-tasking ingredients that exfoliates, moisturize, preserves the formulation and provides acidity to the product.
GLYCOLIC ACID: It removes excess buildup of dead skin cells that can be caused by skin problems such as acne, dry skin, and wrinkles. It is a AHA and is believed to have a greater penetration rate due to its small molecular weight. It can be irritating to the skin if the product has high glycolic acid concentration with low ph. Great for acne prone skin.
BETAINE SALICYLATE: It is essentially salicylic acid formulated with betaine which is derived from natural sources like sugared beets. It is much gentler on the skin than regular salicylic so the chance of skin irritation is low unless you are allergic to the ingredients.It is a BHA; salicylic acid is a very effective ingredient in acne products and can be found in a variety of skincare product.It penetrates the pores and exfoliates cellular build up.
After cleansing my skin, I apply this to the area with the acne. I pump liquid into my palm and pat into my skin until fully absorbed.
Then I follow with my hydrating toner, essence, serums, moisturizer and sunscreen in the AM.
In the PM, I sometimes follow this toner with Estee Lauderdale Advanced night serum to give extra hydration to my skin and full the extra kick to fight of the acne.
HOW LONG DID I TEST THE PRODUCT?
I bought it in September but started using it on and off since October 2016.
OILY SKIN, COMBINATION SKIN AND SENSITIVE/OILY SKIN.
I would also recommend this product to anyone with acne.
A simple plastic bottle with a pump top that has kept product fresh and intact so far.
It soothes irritated acneic skin on contact. The minute I applied it to developing bump, it immediately feels better and more comfortable
It usually takes about two to three days to see a complete difference on the skin. (This is based off a skin that develops acne from irritation, a reaction to products or just general diet and external factors. For people with severe acne or hormonal acne I recommend you physically see a dermatologist or skin therapist for diagnosis and treatment)
Unlike other acne treatment on the market this does not drying your skin out
I feel a very mild tingle when I apply it on the area which is expected because of the acids in this formula
It is compatible with other skincare products so I just added it to my current routine and it is still effective
The price is really friendly. It lasts a long time and a little goes a long way
