Most Helpful Positive Review Excellent low pH toner
My skin is dehydrated, but still acne prone at pushing 70. With an Asian/K approach, you need to balance the acid mantle at the first, toner step. BHA gets deep in the pores and does that, with zero frills. Not an American style alcohol based toner. Though it will remove any cleansing residue, that is not the point. If you have, as K regimes call it, 'trouble' skin, you need bha in the first layer. Even for decent skin, it renders any of the following skincare steps more effective. For me, this is a must-have, HG product. If I leave it out, my skin clogs. It may not be enough bha for oily types...you may need another bha layer. Cosrx has blackhead power essence for that. Having no alcohol, it is not drying. This is one of the top products I have found in ~50 years of skincare. No frills. If you like a straightforward, ingredients-driven approach, Cosrx is for you. And it won't empty your wallet, either. I'm out of this now, and my skin shows it! When I follow a PC/ Cosrx routine, even the SAs say 'What acne? You don't have acne!'' Most Cosrx products have a minimal ingredients list. As with food, that is usually better for you. If you use Cosdna to check ingredients, as I have to, you NEVER see warnings. Products are very likely to be allergy/sensitivity friendly and unfragranced. Just targeted ingredients that work. Cosrx rules. Thanks, Ulta, for starting 3 Cosrx products. Need I say, go for more?
Most Helpful Critical Review Irritated my skin
I have sensitive, acne-prone skin. My skin had finally gotten to a good place, and because I used AHAs in the past with good results, I decided to try this based on the excellent reviews. I used for approximately one week (at night only) and noticed my skin becoming redder and more irritated, with acne breaks-outs in the red area. I decreased using the product to every other night for only two or three nights because the irritation never improved and the break-outs worsened. So disappointed b/c I really wanted to like this. I'll be returning to the store.

I was struggling to find a toner that didn't have glycerin or fragrance, as both trigger my fungal acne! I've been using this for about a week now and my skin is completely clear save for one or two small marks that are hardly noticeable.
Using for legs not face
VONNIEG from Portland, OR
I wanted to purchase the power liquid, but bought this by mistake. Decided to try it anyway. Didn't like it for my face, but since I have been trying to get rid of my strawberry legs figured why not try it on them. I have used it 3x this week and my legs are definitely softer. I have noticed the clogged pores are coming to the surface a little. I will continue to use since I think it is doing something!! It didn't work for the sensitive skin on my face, but I like what it is doing for my legs!
Mona from Los Angeles
Bought this in January and at first I thought it was gimmicky because it felt just like water. I would use this (sometimes) and the ordinary glycolic acid toner a couple of times a week. I was running out of the ordinary's so I started to use this and AMAZING! this helped me so much with breakouts I'm really surprised on how well this products work. I thought I liked the ordinarys because it is a gentle exfoliant but I've soon realized that it was in fact making my skin worse. This product here not only soothed my skin but actually saved it. My skin has never looked better and I truly believe it's because of this toner. I am less oily while I've noticed my skin looks a lot smoother and feels very gentle. Overall I really enjoy this product I'm definitely checking out COSRX other products.
Kenzie from Minneapolis
I used this for about 6 month and noticed a huge improvement in my skins texture and the pores on my nose and chin were clear and looked smaller. I stopped using for about a years while pregnant but I started using again a few months ago and I remember how amazing this is.
Keeps my skin on track
IriH from Jersey City, NJ
This is a great product. My main skin concern is blackheads and texture, this product has keep my skin soft and glowing, and my oil production regulated since day one. I use it am and pm. I have only use it for about two weeks and Im already seeing results on my blackheads, looking forward to see what it can do for my skin in the long run.
Jenn R from Las Vegas
I bought this product because I love the brand and I was in trade based on all of the positive reviews. I use this daily in the morning and evening on my back to prevent future breakouts. I also wanted to see if the clarifying treatment toner would help with my acne scars. I am happy to report during the hot summers I have not broken out once while using this product.
All time favorite !
The Dog Mom from Watkinsville,Ga
I use this almost nightly after washing and before any other products.
Changed the game
Kbb99 from Long Beach
This stuff has cleared up my skin while still look hydrated and bright. I couldn't recommend more.
Lili from USA
Ok so it literally feels like water and looks like water. No smell at all, but it works! I have no clue how but it does. My skin feels so clean and flake free. Must have!
The perfect toner!
Sam from US
I am a very no fuss skin care girl. I stick close to cleanser/toner/moisturizer. I knew I wanted to add an AHA/BHA to my routine but I don't like to add additional steps like serums. The skin concerns I had were the occasional hormonal break out/small bumpy texture around my cheeks/eyes and redness. The breakouts still happen but seem to resolve quicker and it hasn't improved my redness however this has changed my skin texture completely. My skin leans more oily so I can't speak to if this would work on dry skin. I personally love the spray bottle. The mist is fine and applies evenly within 2-3 sprays. At the price point I am not to worried about the minimal waste of product. Idk what else to say 5 out of 5 man it's great.
Jos from Chicago, IL
This product was surprisingly amazing! I have been experiencing issues with breakouts during the pandemic. Once I added this to my routine I noticed many of my blemishes started to reduce. I only use this toner at note since it is advised to wear a good spf during the day. I am not taking any chances because anybody who has experienced breakouts know that hyperpigmentation is a constant worry.
I would like to add this bottle comes in spray bottle. It has no odor or strong fragrance. It can be drying if you use too many acids so please follow up with a good moisturizer.
Great Ingredient List
Glendeetz from CA
I struggled with how many stars to give this because I was not instantly wow'd. The ingredient list alone should be 5-stars, along with how gentle this formula is. I tried to really examine my skin while using it, but I couldn't tell if there was a difference; on the other hand, is this a good thing because no difference meant no crazy breakouts? Either way, I used up the entire bottle, and still didn't feel like this was a product that I was hyped about. But then, I went back to read the ingredient list again, and got excited and went back to feeling like I want to purchase again to give it another try. Compared to other toners with these simple ingredients. price-point is reasonable. I also go back and forth on the application method; spraying directly on my face seemed easy with less waste. But it would've been nice to use a cotton pad (I hated using a cotton pad with the spray nozzle). Given my experience, I think I will probably re-purchase this once I try a couple of toners that I have in my collection so that I can compare even more.
Great for Ingrown Hairs!

I'm giving five stars because it made a very painful and large ingrown go away in like 24 hours. !!!
Face wakes up so smooth

Please get this!
emuhleeh from washington
I've struggled with acne my entire life and always have acne. It's not as bad as it used to be but I always have a pimple or 2. I started using this a week a ago and I've not gotten a blemish since, my skin is glowing and my dry patches have decreased. It's the only new product I've added to my routine so I know it's this. I purchased this during 21 days a beauty and will have no problem purchasing it again at full price!
only been using for a couple weeks.
Samantha from Denton, Maryland
I don't use this everyday because ive noticed it drys my skin out. I have dry skin already so I use it every other day. I got it on 21 days of beauty so if I didn't like it I wouldn't be mad that I paid full price. but Iam really starting to like Cosrx products.
Crystal from Michigan
Love this product, use it after face wash then I apply moisturizer. My oily skin reacts so well to this , it keeps the oils at bay. Totally recommend
This stuff works!
Mel from Kansas
The first week I noticed a difference. I don't know why I have waited so long to give it a try.
alright, not amazing
beachmom9 from dmv
happy I picked this up on sale because paying full price for an okay product would have upset me. not great if you've had better AHA/BHA acids. I guess it's a good start, but not for me. will use up, but no repurchases.
Works very well, has simple ingredients, right price!
Baby Sid from Philadelphia
I use this a few times a week. More than that would be too drying for me. I only use it at night, and when I wake up my skin is smooth and acne has usually disappeared! It does dry out my skin tho, so I would say less is more!! The next day I usually follow with a hydrating sheet mask
Bre from Virginia
This wasn't bad. I'm very acne prone and it didn't break me out which is good. I used the whole bottle and didn't notice any sort of difference, so I don't think I'll purchase again. I know a couple of people who absolutely loved it, so maybe it was just my skin?
Not bad but not my favorite
Amanda from Soflo
I've been using this toner for about a month and a half now I don't don't see any difference to my skin at all. I have super dry skin. I do find the toner refreshing and it doesn't make my skin any dryer but I still have blockheads and larger pores. It's definitely not a bad toner but it's not my favorite.
Stop your toner search here
Emily from Burlington, VT
I use this after cleansing and before essence and moisturizer. Its a nice product and my skin has improved in terms of texture and tone since incorporating it, granted I also added COSRX Snail Mucin Essence to my routine as well. I used to use the Pixi Glow Tonic toner and this COSRX one is a much higher quality and more effective product for nearly the same cost.
I absolutely loveeeee this product!!! Very pleased!!
Kayla from Oxford, MS
I wash my face with my daily face wash, then pat dry. Following I spray the Corsx on my face gently patting with my fingers only. At night time I don't put moisturizer, but in the mornings I follow up with
