REVIEW: COSRX BHA Blackhead Power Liquid
From nose strips to blackhead removal tools, we have all been through the struggle of trying to get rid of blackheads and unclog pores to no avail. Whether it be blackheads on the nose, or a new whitehead on the forehead, pore problems can be a never-ending battle. That is, until I met COSRX BHA Blackhead Power Liquid.
Different from AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acids), BHA (Beta-Hydroxy Acids) products are capable of penetrating into the deeper layers of your skin (which is where all the blackheads are) to clear out all the gunks and prevent your skin from future pimples or breakouts. This is what makes BHA so effective at removing stubborn blackheads, compared to scrubs or other physical exfoliators that can only remove what’s on the surface of the skin.
The COSRX BHA Blackhead Power Liquid is a gentle yet effective exfoliant that contains 4% Betaine Salicylate, a natural BHA. This exfoliator does not only remove existing blackheads and sebum inside the pores, it also prevents future blackheads and helps skin rebuild its moisture barrier.
Before and After using COSRX BHA Blackhead Power Liquid
The texture of this product is clear and thin, and glides smoothly over the skin. Unlike many other BHA products, the COSRX Blackhead Power Liquid does not dry out your skin, making it suitable for all skin types, even dry skin.
The ideal way to use this product in your skincare routine is directly after double cleansing, and remember to follow up with a sunscreen if you’re going outside. With continuous usage, your skin will feel so much more smoother and your pores tighter. Bye-bye blackheads!
