Hi guys! I have been fighting off a cold this whole week and what a great way to spend my Saturday relaxing at home and writing a new post on a hot product! It’s the COSRX One Step Moisture Up Pad. It was launched a couple months ago following huge popularity of the COSRX One Step Pimple Clear Pad in early spring this year. It has the same packaging and number of pads. The main ingredient in the Pimple Clear Pad is betaine salicylate and in the Moisture Up Pad its hyaluronic acid.
The cotton pad has a textured side and a smooth side. The bumpy side is there to gently remove dead skin and flakes. It is also formulated with BHA which helps brighten and also help clean out your pores, so even though it’s a moisture pad it’s still great for oily/acne prone skin. It also has propolis extract which nourishes the skin and replenishes the skin to it’s original state. The hyaluronic acid provides optimum hydration as well as added cetearyl olivate which is a emulsifier from olive oil, reduces skin water loss, has a high moisturizing effect, is hypoallergenic and biomimics the skin.
There are no skin irritating ingredients so it’s also great for sensitive skin. It smell really good, the bergamot and lemon oil as a wonderful aroma. I like using it because it’s great for my dry skin and I can get the cleaning benefits of the original Pimple Up Pad. I’ve been using it in the morning and evening as a toner and a 2nd cleansing pad. It’s great to use for fixing your makeup or makeshift mask sheet too. It doesn’t have a sticky feeling either.
It costs 25,000KRW but it’s on promotion for 17,000KRW. I don’t think I would have full price for it though. If you use it twice a day it’s about 714 KRW per day, with the price I paid I pay less than 500KRW per day. Honestly I have better toners/cleansers than this one so I don’t think I’ll be repurchasing. However, if you like the no fuss feature of this product it’s worth trying out.
Thanks for reading!
