COSRX: Ultimate Guide to This Popular K-Beauty Brand (Part 2)

In continuation!

The Part 2 to the COSRX Ultimate Guide, if you haven’t read Part 1, don’t worry, just click here and come back when you’re done! Or you can read this blog on its own.

We know choosing and committing to a particular product is hard, especially when they are so many options on the market, or even within the brand itself. So, we’re here to help make your life that bit easier.   

Whenever it comes to COSRX, I have three adjectives that perfectly embodies the brand: simple, affordable and suitable.

  1. Simple because its products are straight to the point and usually have one main ingredient they focus on, rather than trying to fit as many active ingredients as they can, which may actually take a turn for the worse if the formulation isn’t done right. Sometimes the best products and formulations are those kept simple.
  2. Affordable, as we’ve mentioned, COSRX products range from RM9 to RM100+, which is a sight very hard to come across, especially for a brand as well known as COSRX and one that actually works! This is also very important because their low prices make them accessible to everyone; both the older and younger audience. I know the pain of the younger audience trying to find a product that works for their skin, especially when their skin is going through hormonal changes and anything, and I mean anything, can trigger a breakout.
  3. Suitable because COSRX has products that can treat visibly any skin type or concern. Suffering from dry skin, don’t worry their Hyaluronic Acid products have got you covered. What about sensitive skin? Not to worry, their Cica line is perfect for you. Going through hormonal acne? COSRX’s AC Collection is something you can take a look at. 

For this blog, I’m gonna be talking about the various lines of products within COSRX and helping you find which line that fits your skin concerns best. Something like a cheat sheet for COSRX so you wouldn’t have to read through each product description.


Snail Mucin

Suitable for mature skin looking to reduce wrinkles and pigmentation, and dry skin that is in dire need of hydration.
