I breakout from Cosrx One Step Pimple Clear Pads !!!


Yes, i am not lying to you. I breakout from Cosrx One Step Pimple Clear Pads that is so uncommon. You guys who love korean skincare products and have acne problem definitely know the hype of this cosrx pimple pads. The hype has brought me into believing so much on the magic of cosrx pimple pads.

I am not joking. I have quite fine skin. In my latest skincare routine, acne only comes one to two bumps especially during my period. I do not change every single products on my skincare except toner. I practically use cosrx pimple pads as toner as i want to replace Son & Park beauty water. Now I even back to Son & Park beauty water!

I do not know whether there is an ingredient or more that do not suitable to my skin condition. Again, I have acne-prone combination-dehydrated skin. I also got breakout from Klairs Vitamin C Juice Drop that is also very hype product. Strange because most people love this product. If you know or if you are an expert 🙂 kindly let me or our readers know whether Cosrx Clear Pads and Klairs Vitamin C Juice Drop has one or more same ingredients that could not be suitable for my skin condition. Maybe some people who has skin condition like me could prevent using products with those ingredients.

THE BENEFIT: #(that they claimed to be…)#

Betain Salicylate cares dead skin cells without irritation and makes clear skin tone. It’s a trouble&sebum care pad accomplishes matte skin by clearing skin trouble, sebum, and oil.

One-step pimple clear pads that reduces acne breakouts and promotes clearer skin.
Promotes exfoliation of dead surface cells resulting in enhanced cellular renewal with Betaine salicylate.
Leaves skin cleaner, clearer and blemish free.

HOW TO USE: #(that they asked us to…)#

1. After face wash, sweep lightly according to skin texture with 1 pad.
2. Then apply basic skin care products.
3. After use, make sure you close the cover.

For people with dry skins, use 1~2 times a day. #(yeah, i used it 1-2 times too!)#


Salix Alba(Willow) Bark Water, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Betaine Salicylate, 1,2-Hexanediol, Panthenol, Allantoin, Arginine, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Sodium Hyaluronate,Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil,Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil , Ethyl Hexanediol, Sodium Hydroxide


First impression, this infused pads has strong smell to me…really STRONG smell. It smells really alcoholic and worst medicine smell that you could experienced (some medicine actually not smell that bad). I hate the smells so much 😦 Not because of the alcohol or medicine smell, it really has STRANGE smell guys 😦 But actually to me…as long as the product works, I don’t care about the smell. I will put fishy smell skincare as long as it works its magic. (Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask smell so fishy!)

What I got from first day use, I woke up with two tiny bumps coming out on my forehead. I stayed cool and believe I was just having some other issues. Then I use it again. On the third day, I found two medium bumps coming out around the nose and one bumps on forehead. The fifth or sixth day, another pimple on my brow 😦 The nineth day that I could not tolerate anymore, cystic acne on my cheek!! OUGH!!!!! :(( I hate cystic acne so much because it’s so hard to treat (hard to come out and leave scar for even a year or more). I know it’s cystic acne because it does not come out after three days using Cosrx Pimple Patch :(( which usually my acne will see a result in two uses.

I knew exactly these things ever happened to me when I used Klairs Vitamin C Juice Drop. I have very sensitive skin that will react if the products do not work. I do not get on “some people” who said “if you directly experienced breakout from using A product, it actually mean A product work. It’s cleaning out dirts and bacteria inside your pores!” OMG!!! What does they mean!?! To me, if your skin do not breakout, it means your pores has no dirts and bacteria trap inside. If bacteria trap inside, it will definitely marry with sebum and acne occurs.

Then because I did not want to waste money, i kept using the product to see if magic would happened on the following days ’till two weeks; maybe my skin will adapt !?! The result was ACTUALLY NO MAGIC HAPPENED :((

To summarize, sorry but I don’t get this product magic. So sad, because my favorite youtubers like joankim, sunnydahye, meejmuse, thebeautybreakdown love love love this cosrx pads.

For the stars I would give: 0 out of 5

I am so sad to rate 0 out of 5 but it’s really zero to me.

Son & Park Beauty Water

If you are into korean beauty, you must have heard about Son & Park Beauty Water. The hype has even bring this product into Sephora! Congratulation for Son & Park !!!

The question is… Does this product really perform that good?

Actually, I was being introduced for “Little Book of Skincare from Charlotte Cho” when I was randomly search for korean beauty routine. Then, I came to have interest with some of the products. One of those were Son & Park Beauty Water.

Basically Son & Park Beauty Water is a cleansing water that use to remove impurities on your skin. It does remove sunblock, light BB cream & foundation, and light make-up. But it couldn’t remove waterproof make-up for sure.

If you haven’t heard about this product, here I post the details that I quote from random sources.


This multi use product can be used as a toner and gentle exfoliant in the morning to prep for skin care and to create a smoother surface for makeup. At night, Beauty Water can be used as a cleansing water to thoroughly remove makeup, dirt, and oil. Lavender water, rosewater, and orange fruit extract hydrate the skin, while willow bark and papaya extract sweep away dead skin cells—revealing a brighter skintone and smoother texture.


Suggested Usage:
-Moisten a cotton pad and gently sweep across the face.

Beauty Water is ideal:
-As a toner before applying the rest of your skin care products.
-To remove remaining impurities after cleansing.
-As a way to freshen up skin during the day.


-Willow Bark and Papaya Extract: Renew skin’s surface by lifting impurities and dead skin cells for brighter, smoother skin.
-Rose Flower Water, Orange Fruit Extract, and Lavender Water: Deliver intense hydration.

Actually, I was not interested with “paraben” in the product. I always try to scan the ingredients of whatever product I am going to purchase to make sure it doesn’t contain paraben. However, I was really want to try this product to get to know the hype.

I personally use Son & Park Beauty Water as toner after cleansing. Sometimes when I was lazy to cleanse my face, I would pour two to three drops onto a cotton pad and wipe my face. Then, I have a lightly clean and moisturize face. It feels like you let your pores breath after a long hours cover them from sunblock or make-up. I found it quite comfortable to use and omg it’s very refreshing. 🙂 🙂 I don’t like product with strong perfume smell. This product has slightly rose smell that is quite refreshing.

For the performance, this product really take off any impurities that sink into my pores. Even after cleansing, sometimes I could still found a little bit trace of impurities on my cotton pad. Yes, this product does its job really well that makes me couldn’t taking it off from my skincare routine. I have used a bottle for around 4 months and now it’s about a quarter left. I would still continue to use it until finish.

Then, would I repurchase? The answer is… I still don’t know yet. The things that make me consider more is “paraben” in this product. I am not a fan of products with paraben. 😦 Though, products with paraben has no issue as long as the amount of parabens contains was approved by public health care. I am not interested to use daily products with paraben. If you are one of Son & Park people who reading my review, i am begging you to upgrade new beauty water with no paraben inside. I think beauty water would get more love from people like me and I would definitely repurchase!

For the convenient, I don’t think beauty water was the one. Yes, it’s very convenient to just wipe your face and you could start with clean canvas, but I found that bringing face wipes are more convenient. Whenever I am, I could just take out a wipe to wipe my face and I left with clean face too rather than bring a bottle of beauty water and separated cotton pads. Other than that, I don’t like toner with twist cap that most toner are… just because I am too clumsy to open a twist cap 😦 #I always drop the cap. I think if it comes with a pump, it will be more convenient to use and of course more hygienic. 😉

Then, come to the final conclusion…..

For the stars I would give: 4 out of 5

I couldn’t give below 4, because this product works really well. Only paraben and packaging things that make me consider to repurchase.

COSRX Advanced Snail 92 All in One cream – Is it worth the HYPE ???

#Hi, this is my personal review about this product. I hope my review would be helpful for you. But, it is  very important for you to consult with your dermatologist first before use this product. I don’t have education background in dermatology. But, I do my personal research on blogger, vlogger, people that have used this product.

If you are in acne problem, I believe you have heard about korean cosmetic brand names COSRX. COSRX has many range of products that mostly use to treat acne. I don’t have really massive acne, but I have some acne.

First of all, before you read this review, it is important for you to know my skin condition. I am chinese-indonesian and my skin type supposed to be sensitive-combination-dry-acne prone skin. In my opinion, acne prone doesn’t mean you have lots of acne on your face. A person skin is categorized acne prone, when this person’s skin is more “prone” to acne rather than others. Whenever i don’t cleanse my face after a long day before hit to the gym, I will get one or some raising bumps on my face. If I were sweating a lot or wearing dirty accessories or make up on my face, those tiny bumps will say hello to me 😦 Again, I don’t have lots of acne on my face, maybe only little one..but I do have some acne scars.

Back to the topic of COSRX Advanced Snail 92 All in One cream that you maybe feel so curious about this product. I have sensitive skin and I would say this product works very well. COSRX Advanced Snail 92 All in One cream is worth the hype!


More about this product that I quoted from COSRX website.


Contained 92% of Snail Secretion Filtrate supplies rich nutrient and moist to skin.

“Snail cream with layering of hyper-moisturization without thirst or broken barriers!”
Advanced Snail 92 All In One Cream is a nourishing moisture cream that endows energy and beauty to the skin with purely separated snail secretion filtrate at 92% content, from living Korean snails. Advanced Snail 92 All In One Cream is safe for usage in skin, consisting of excellent skin-activation components, preventing skin damage and available for use immediately after facial wash, without skin or lotion.


1. After facial wash, take a small amount for each area of the face in the final stage of basic care.  Tap with fingertips to absorb along the skin texture.
2. Absorb by covering your face 2 to 3 times softly with your palm.


Snail Secretion Filtrate, Betaine, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Cetearyl Olivate, Sorbitan Olivate, Sodium Hyaluronate, Cetearyl Alcohol, stearic acid, Arginine, Dimethicone, Carbomer, Panthenol, Allantoin, Sodium Polyacrylate, Xanthan Gum, Ethyl Hexanediol, Adenosine, Phenoxyethanol

#be sure to check or consult with dermatologist about all this ingredients to know that if you are allergic to.


I use this product about two months now and I would say my breakout is less than normal. Of course, I still regularly cleanse my face. I usually get more breakout from dirty contact with other things (dust, bacteria, etc). Now I see that I get less breakout. Maybe one or two little bumps in a month (before one to three bumps in a week). Yeah.. I could say that COSRX all in one Snail cream does its magic on my face!

The way I use COSRX Advanced Snail 92 All in One cream is as a regular moisturizer. What I love about this cream is it says that this cream could be use immediately after you cleanse your face! When you feel lazy to do the long skincare routine or when you feel sleepy, in my case when I feel my body is not well and has less energy, this cream works perfectly. You just need to cleanse your face with your facial wash or wipes, then slap this cream on your face and you’ve done!

What i like about COSRX products, they contain less ingredients and somehow work very effectively.

The consistency of this cream is runny, thick but easy to blend and absorb on my skin, and somehow looks like snail mucin 😦 But, don’t be scare, it doesn’t smell like snail or disgusting things. This cream doesn’t has strong perfume smell.

What I don’t like about this cream is the packaging. The packaging is horrible. I don’t really hate jar packaging but for this runny cream in a jar is somehow very messy. It comes with plastic spatula that I supposed to love a spatula. But the spatula’s placement in the jar is not fit at all. The spatula keep falling whenever I open the jar. So COSRX if you read my review, please change the packaging. I would love to repeat order this product 🙂 maybe could use a dropper type packaging.

For the stars I would give: 4.5 out of 5

(minus 0.5 just because of the messy packaging)
