Eid Mubarak to my fellow Muslims, May we live to witness many more of this 🙏. I hope you all slayed thru the celebrations/holidays cos I did try 😁👇
This past few days, I’ve been at bliss with myself and my skin. So much peace, joy and contentment 💗. This is one of the best feeling in the world. Talking ’bout my skin- it’s damn healthy and glowing, I should be called “Glowriana” 😂. Even my six year old nephew told me I’m fresh 😋. I don’t keep no secrets about my skincare regimen so I will be sharing this post with you.
If you follow my post often, you should know I’m obsessed with Cosrx brand. They honestly know how to produce the best products that work efficiently and effective. Like the Snail mucin power essence, BHA skin returning emulsion, Aloe soothing sun cream, Low PH Gel cleanser, The Two in One Poreless Power liquid is another addition to my skincare regimen that I can totally say is a holy grail product.
What’s in this stuff? It’s glass skin in a bottle
The Two in One Poreless Power liquid is a lightweight serum formulated with 88 percent willow bark water and salicylate, which help unclog pores while soothing inflammation. It even has a cooling sensation to it. Combined with tannin, a natural astringent, the treatment also helps smooth skin after clearing it of all those nasties to give it that poreless, glass-like look everyone is after lately.
▪ PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
The Two in One Poreless Power Liquid is a product designed to improve the appearance of enlarged and clogged pores with two key ingredients: willow bark water & BHA (hence the “two in one” part). Basically it’s not meant to be used as or take the place of any existing BHA you may already have in your routine (it’s only 0.1%). However, for those of us having any kind of issues with pores, this is designed to compliment your existing routine (you won’t overexfoliate from this product).
The Two in One Poreless Power Liquid contains the following ingredients;
Salix Alba (Willow) Bark Water, Butylene Glycol, Hydroxypropyl Cyclodextrin, Water, Pentylene Glycol, 1,2-Hexanediol, Betaine Salicylate, Arginine, Betaine, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Allantoin, Panthenol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Sodium Hyaluronate, Carbomer, Cassia Obtusifolia Seed Extract, Menthyl Lactate, Mentha Haplocalix Extract
▪BREAK DOWN OF KEY INGREDIENTS
Salix alba (willow) bark water– It contains salicylic acid which is a form of BHA. Due to its astringent, anti-inflammatory and conditioning qualities, this ingredient is the key component that is responsible to giving you that glass-like skin. This makes it good for treating acne, clearing out pores & getting better skin texture. It is also known to help stimulate new cell formation. This product contains 88% willow bark water.
Tannins – Tannin contains anti-oxidants and has anti-bacterial properties to fight against bacteria, acne ad infections on the skin. It also has the ability to remove excess sebum and reduce the appearance of your pores making them look tighter and less visible.
Menthyl Lactate– This is the synthesis of menthol and lactic acid. It is a soothing, cooling agent and also offers mild relief from itchiness and irritation.
Mentha Haplocalix (Mint) Extract– This also act as a cooling agent as it helps cool down skin temperature. Mint also contains vitamin A, which can strengthen skin as well as control oily skin.
Sodium Hyaluronate – An ingredient that is naturally found in your body, this holds moisture in and helps create full/plump skin for a more youthful appearance.
Like all cosrx product, this comes in the usual unisex pump bottle that a lot of their liquid products come in. This time, this one has a teal-colored box for the product name. It doesn’t look fancy, but that just because Cosrx puts more care into the simplicity and effectiveness of their product.
▪ TEXTURE – The Two in One Poreless Power Liquid is a lightweight serum. It is very runny and has the same consistency as their other power liquids. I love the consistency as it makes it easy to distribute the product around the face.
▪ HOW TO USE
Official directions off the box says, “Pump the liquid and gently pat on your face for absorption. To form a better synergy, use with cotton pad and wipe off face avoiding lip and eye area.” I prefer using this with cotton pads as it distributes evenly on my face, the only con using cotton pads is you get to use more product.
I use this product right after cleansing and before using my essence. Usually I wait for about 2-3 minutes before applying my essence or night cream. You can use this product twice a day, everyday.
▪ DOES THE TWO IN ONE PORELESS POWER LIQUID WORK?
Yes, this product works effectively for those with minor pores, whiteheads and sensitive skin.
The Two in One Poreless Power liquid is gentler than the likes of the BHA Blackhead Power Liquid as it contains lesser percentage of BHA (about 0.1%). So if you have sensitive skin, this may be an easy way to introduce your skin to Cosrx’s exfoliating products.
If you have larger pores and big acne, you might want to consider BHA Blackhead Power Liquid as it contain higher concentration of BHA.
▪ REVIEW & FINAL IMPRESSION
The Poreless Power liquid does minimize pores, reduce excess sebum and improves skin appearance.
When I first used this product, I was experiencing some minor breakouts on my nose and forehead- more like skin purging. Few days later, my break out reduced and my pores were shrinking. I love the cooling effect right after applying the product.
Within weeks and months of using the product, my skin appearance got better- looking for youthful and complexion more even. You can use other AHA/BHA products right after using this.
Every skin type is different and your experience may or may not be the same as mine.
I am extremely thrilled to introduce this into my skincare routine as part of an essential step to getting healthier and glowing skin. Hopefully, this blog post will help you on your way to better skin and bring confidence to your like it never did before! You can purchase this serum at Shopmodavracha on Instagram for #10,000.
