Back again with another Korean skincare products post, talking all things COSRX. 🤩 If you know me, you know how much I love following a Korean skincare routine and today I’m sharing all the best COSRX products to add to your skincare wishlist.
I’m sure you’ve heard of COSRX since they recently went viral for their snail mucin essence and pimple patches. I can confirm these products are worth the hype! The patches are my go-to when I feel a zit coming on.
COSRX offers so many skincare products that work on all skin types. I’m confident you’ll find something that works for you and your needs.
Let’s get into the best COSRX products and why this has quickly become one of my favorite Korean skincare brands.
About the Brand
COSRX is a K-Beauty brand that focuses on finding solutions to everyone’s skin conditions. They use high-quality and high-concentration ingredients to make skincare more manageable.
You’ll notice they have minimal and basic packaging for all their products, but that’s intentional. The brand would rather focus on the key ingredients to create a highly effective product.
I love how all their products are accessible and marketed at a reasonable price—under $30. Nothing beats affordable and powerful beauty products.

9 Best COSRX Products
When I started my Korean skincare journey, snail mucin was definitely something that intimidated me—it’s weird thinking about snail on your face. 😂 But I quickly learned and saw how effective snail mucin can be on the skin.
This Advanced Snail Mucin Power Essence went viral for good reason, it’s like a multivitamin for your skin. It helps nourish, plump, and repair your skin’s moisture.
It’s formulated with 96/3% snail secretion filtrate, which targets anti-aging and dehydrated skin. This essence also helps improve the skin’s vitality by reducing any dullness to promote more of a healthy glow.
I love that it doesn’t have a fragrance and absorbs quickly into the skin. I’ve also noticed this product has really smoothed out the appearance of any fine lines.
I wish they had these pimple patches when I was a teenager because they would’ve made having pimples not sooo bad. I love that these pimple patches blend in well with the skin so they’re barely noticeable. I’ve even taken Zoom calls while wearing them, lol.
So anytime you have a pimple flare-up, you can easily pop one of these on and you’re good to go without worry. The COSRX pimple patches are uniquely developed hydrocolloid material that effectively extracts impurities.
The material basically creates a moist environment that makes the healing process go faster. These also help prevent any secondary infections and further swelling.
It comes in a few different sizes and effectively has blemish control by absorbing excess sebum. The best part is you can say goodbye to acne scars.
Like I mentioned earlier in this post, whenever I feel a pimple coming on, I reach for these patches. They work overnight to either flatten that sucker right out or bring everything to a head. Thx goodness.
It’s made with tea tree and beta hydroxy acids making it a mild cleanser. You can use this cleanser day and night to reduce the look of large pores and help control oil production.
The cleanser also works to remove any impurities while strengthening the skin’s barrier. Your skin will be balanced and protected from any irritants.
It has a super mild scent, works on all skin types, and is sold at such a great price.
This is my go-to cream whenever my skin is needing some extra love and hydration. I love the texture of this moisturizer because it also feels like a gel but it hydrates like an intensive cream.
It’s made with a high concentration of Hyaluronic Acid and Hippophae Rhamnoides water. After every use, it will leave your skin looking extra plump and youthful.
Hyaluronic Acid helps reduce the appearance of any fine wrinkles by deeply hydrating the skin. The best part is that it never leaves the skin feeling oily or heavy.
Your skin will be feeling so soft and hydrated. This cream would work best on extremely dry skin or sensitive skin.
This BHA Blackhead Power Liquid works best on oily skin types and can be a little irritating on acne-prone skin. It’s made with BHA & Niacinamide to be a liquid gentle exfoliant removing any dead skin cells.
With 4% Betain salicylate, it helps reduce excess sebum and waste. This is an essence so it’s recommended to apply this after toner.
It also has 68% natural acid white willow bark water and 2% niacinamide to target the T-zone area. This is where it works to target blackheads.
I’ve noticed whenever I’m struggling with a blackhead or clogged pores, this essence always helps get things under control. The texture of my skin also looks a lot smoother.
This AHA and BHA Clarifying Treatment Toner works to soothe, refresh, and soften the skin. With the combination of AHA and BHA, you’re getting a gentle exfoliation on the face.
I like applying this after double cleansing and before essence. The ingredients work together to improve the skin’s texture and control the pores.
The 10% white willow bark and 10% of apple water both target skin irritation soothing it. It’s recommended to be used with a dampened cotton pad to wipe over the skin.
This toner works especially well on acne-prone skin. It will definitely always be leaving your skin nice and fresh.
This Aloe Soothing Sun Cream is one of my favorite SPFs ever! 🤩 I love that this SPF feels like skincare and more like a lightweight moisturizer.
Made with Aloe Arborescens Leaf Extract, it works as a daily sunscreen to soothe the skin while never leaving a white cast.
This SPF never leaves my skin feeling sticky or dry like other sunscreen products. It’s a very hydrating sunscreen that quickly absorbs into the skin.
It even works in super humid conditions—be prepared to use this all year round.
If you’re not a fan of liquid toners and prefer premade toner pads, you’re going to love these One Step Original Clear pads. It comes with 70 pre-soaked pads, in essence, to swipe away dead skin cells and excess sebum.
It’s an easy way to gently exfoliate oily and acne-prone skin. The BHA ingredient helps clear clogged pores bringing back your skin’s natural glow.
There’s willow bark water instead of plain mineral water to maximize exfoliating and clearing benefits. I love that it’s safe for everyday use.
I like traveling with these because it’s easy to slip a few into a zip bag and not have to worry about a liquid product leaking or spilling (plus it’s a much more lightweight option).
Last but not least is the amazing Nourishing Rice Overnight Spa Mask that is made with more than 68% of rice extract. This mask intensively nourishes the skin to help it look clearer and softer.
This is also a great option if you struggle with very dry skin. With rice extract, your skin will be looking bright and less flaky.
It glides easily on the skin and feels so moisturizing—never greasy feeling. I really like that it comes in a tube container instead of a tub since it keeps things more hygienic.
Those were all the best COSRX products to add to your skincare routine. Every product I’ve tried by COSRX so far has worked amazingly on my skin.
My skin looks so glowy and so healthy! COSRX definitely gets a 10/10 ranking from me. 🙌
