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.

MY PERSONAL REVIEW:
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.
