Cleared My Acne Scars!
Skin Type: combination Skin
Skin Concerns: Acne, Blackheads, Large Pores, Sensitive Skin, Dehydrated Skin, Whiteheads/Closed Comedones

There have only been 2 products that have had such a great effect on my skin, and this is one of them. Within around 2 weeks of use, I noticed that my acne scars, brought about by picking on my skin, have lightened considerably. I initially bought this for hydration, and while it doesn't really offer up much in terms of that, I noticed that it has the added effect of calming my skin immensely. Whenever I have areas of irritation or redness, I concentrate the product there and notice that the irritation is practically gone by the next day. I'm on my second bottle, and I will definitely repurchase!

AMAZING for fungal acne-safe hydration
Skin Type: combination Skin
Skin Concerns: Anti-Aging (Fine lines & Wrinkles), Fungal Acne (Malassezia), Uneven Skin Tone, Whiteheads/Closed Comedones

I'm currently dealing with fungal acne and this product has been my absolute savior! Most of my other products contain triggers for the fungal acne (including my moisturizers, and many of my serums), so I've been relying on this to do the heavy lifting for hydrating, moisturizing, and healing and IT HAS PUT IN WORK. My skin feels so much better when I liberally slather it on, and with a little bit of squalane oil on top or mixed in, it's also worked as a makeshift moisturizer. Relying on this essence, cutting out many of my products, and using sulfur masks has dramatically reduced my fungal acne.

Seals everything else in
Skin Type: oily Skin
Skin Concerns: Rosacea, Anti-Aging (Fine lines & Wrinkles), Large Pores, Sensitive Skin, Uneven Skin Tone

I purchased this after I ran out of Tosowoong Snail Natural Pure Essence. I thought the reason that worked so well was the snail, and this CosRx product has a high concentration so I hoped it would be a good replacement. While Tosowoong did an amazing job of reducing redness and helping clear my skin, the CosRx one didn't seem to do anything for those issues. If I used this without other products underneath it absorbed pretty easily, but if I layered it over other products all it did was seal them in. Eventually I realized it was also contributing to the sensitivity and stinging on my cheeks so I had to stop using it.
