Welcome back to Halsadiya Beauty Blog ❤
Ramadan Mubarak to my muslim readers. I recently just saw The Blacklist season 6 finale episode, and I so mad bout Katarina Stabbing Raymond Reddington. How y’all doing ?
All my conversations about K-beauty products seem to lead to one specific brand: COSRX. Whether it’s my colleagues, close friends, family or even strangers, the Korean skincare brand inevitably comes up. “Have you tried its gel cleanser?, How about thier Snail mucin essence? Lightning Serum? Moisturizer?” Some will ask. “What’s the deal with Cosrx?” Let me tell you all 💁
COSRX is my favorite Korean beauty brand. Cosrx brand is known to have effective yet affordable products. COSRX = COSMETICS + RX (PRESCRIPTION)
COSRX uses effective ingredients such as Snail mucin, Yeast ferment, Centella aciatica leaf water, Birch sap, and skin renewing exfoliants to transform your skin. The moment your skin meets COSRX, you can expect tomorrow.
Focusing on well-formulated products with a very minimalist packaging, one of COSRX’s key selling point is having products with high concentration of actives while maintaining a relatively affordable price. From its widely popular pimple patches to snail creams and power liquids, COSRX definitely addresses a variety of skincare concerns for all skin types
On my skincare journey, I’ve bought and tried so many products ranging from Neutrogena, The Ordinary, Yves Rocher, Mario Badescu, Cetaphil, Ponds and few other which I wasn’t impressed then I was convinced to try out CORSX and I fell in love with the brand.
After buying and trying so many products and here is a list of my favourite products which I recommend to you all 💋💋
1. LOW PH GOOD MORNING CLEANSER
