I have combination (oily/sensitive skin) skin type. So, when choosing products, I have two criteria: 1. It has to be gentle? 2. It has to be effective. This is pretty difficult to find in most products, but I found that with ‘one step cleansing pad’ by COSRX. I especially enjoyed using it this summer; the heat was sometimes unbearable and I had days where my skin looked a little shiny. The one step pimple pad cut through it without being over drying, or irritating. I give this a definite thumb up.
ONE STEP PIMPLE CLEAR PADS COSRX (CLAIM) Wipes away excess dirt, oil and purify clogged pores with exfoliating pre-moistened pads.
ACTIVE INGREDIENTS SALIX ALBA (Willow) BARK WATER: a natural source of salicylic x beneficial for its exfoliating activity.
GLYCERIN: it is water binding, able to draw and absorb water from air, thus helping the skin retain moisture.
BETAINE SALICYLATE betaine salicylate is salicylic acid combined with betaine. It's much gentler.
ARGININE: An essential amino acid. used in formulation to enhance water retention and skin moisture. Amino acids are body’s building blocks from which the proteins are constructed. Widely used in moisturizer and emollient because they are thought to help penetrate the skin.
SKIN TYPE Acne, acne prone and oily skin NOT RECOMMENDED For anyone allergic to tea tree oil or any of the ingredients listed above.
HOW TO USE IT AM /PM After cleansing, I gently swipe my face using the quilted side. I concentrate on the T zone area (which is oily) or around any acne spots I may have at the moment. I flip it around, tapping gently the smooth side into my skin for further absorption.
