COSRX One Step Moisture Up Pad Review
For some background, I have combination skin, and in the past I haven't tolerated harsh exfoliants very well but it claims to suit sensitive skins so I decided to give it a shot. The directions say that these pads are mild enough to use everyday but I limit it twice a week. I've been using these pads for a long time (already finished more then half of the box). These pads feel cooling, it is a gentle exfoliator I personally love gentle exfoliators so I only go through my skin lightly to remove dead skin cells and left over make up (but if you want an exfoliator that is more harsh, just use more pressure). It does a great job with that and it makes my skin moist and little radiant afterwards. These pads have a mild scent & I can bear with it. The thing that I love that it does not dry out my skin. Remaining make up can be seen on the pad, my skin feels softer, moist and it looks clear afterwards. I have had no issues tolerating the pads and my skin hasn't felt drier or over-exfoliated. Often my nose tends to flake but the positive effects to my skin I used the pads the first time, I noticed that the flakiness had subsided. So all I can say I didn't experience any of the bad side effects I usually get from chemical exfoliants. So far, so good.
This is a very gentle exfoliator. It leaves my skin feeling soft. There are pre soaked pads in the tub & the packaging looks cool. You can rinse with water but I usually use a cleanser and a sheet mask after. Honestly my skin is already in pretty good shape; It is already smooth and acne free, I just have few sun spots and I don't know if it'll makes any difference to acne prone skin but I can still say it won't irritate sensivite skins and my purpose of using these to maintain my current skin condition. It can be a great choice if you are looking for a milder exfoliating product.
