Wasn't sure what to expect with this because I've read mixed reviews about its effectiveness on blackheads - but I think it is helping with mine (I have oily, acne-prone skin with lots of blackheads and congested pores)!! I use this in the evenings after cleansing, toning, and first essence. It is a very thin liquid so I think it would be ok in the mornings too, but I don't like to layer so many things under makeup. I notice that in the morning after using, my clogged pores have gone down a lot and over time, my pores have looked smaller because of less congestion, but this could also be due to other parts of my skincare routing (i.e. switching to different products for my double cleanse). It is especially effective after I exfoliate with an AHA product so that the two different types of acid work together to fight the blackheads deeper down. It is very gentle (no tingling for me), and I only need one pump for my whole face so this will last a while. Very happy with this product :)
I like this product. My skin looks more pink and it sort of glows after I use it. The problem is that I don't find it to be effective on blackheads at all.
I've used chemical exfoliators in the past, but none so gentle or effective as the Cosrx BHA. Perfect for my oily, acne-prone skin. All I need are 2-3 pumps every night, right after cleansing, and wait 20 mins before I continue with the rest of my routine. You can apply with a cotton pad, but I find its more efficient to use my hands. This is also very cost-effective. Would definitely repurchase.
