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?
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.

Safe for sensitive skin types! Didn't cause breakouts or leave my skin feeling dry.
Leigh from New York
Postpartum with my daughter I didn't have the time or energy to take care of my skin and it really started to show. My skin was dry and with badly clogged pores and big sebaceous filaments. Tbh I used this on the corner of a burp cloth twice a day and baby lotion as my only skin care and my complexion seriously looks the best it's ever looked! I'm so happy I'll never stop using this!!

I haven't seen a difference in my skin as of yet & It hasn't helped my acne.

I thought this might help clear up the blackheads on my nose but thus far it has not done that at all. It is gentle however and I got it for this purpose as I heard the PC one could be extremely irritating.

I've been struggling with blackheads for as long as I can remember and after using this product consistently, I've seen a decrease in acne. It also makes my skin soft the morning after. I use it 2-3 times per week once at night.

Originally bought this for my nose which was unusually shiny/oily. I suspect it was due to the heat-wave where I live and having to wear a mask on top of the humidity, sweat, and mineral sunscreen I use. One week in with use both in AM and PM has greatly reduced sebum 'gunk' around my T-zone and my whiteheads have disappeared. My skin can be somewhat sensitive but so far this hasn't cause any type of stinging or peeling. The only con might be the spray dispenser. It does waste a little product if you spray it repeatedly to soak a cotton pad. But I just take the sprayer off and soak cotton rounds like I would with any other toner. Overall a reliable and effective product from Cosrx. I haven't tried many other treatments like this but I am satisfied with the results for the price.

I am on my third bottle. I have gotten so many compliments on my skin since I started using it.

It's not necessarily bad (no adverse reaction), but it had zero effect on my skin. Will not repurchase.

i honestly wish i could post before and after pictures on here because the difference in my skin from before to right now (i've been using the product for about 2 weeks) is AMAZING!! my skin hasn't been this clear in such a long time i'm feeling very beautiful and confident. i struggle with hormonal acne and this stopped it right in its tracks. i've been using twice a day for 2 weeks and love it, i may not use as much moving forward if my skin is clear. also make sure to wear sunscreen while using this!!! also i have very dry/ very oily combo skin and this hasn't dried me out or made me more oily at all.

Ok but I prefer the BHA toner to this for my more sensitive skin.
Amy Lea from Florida
I have pretty bad hormonal breakouts, maskne, and acne scars from years of cystic acne. I wanted to add a BHA/AHA product into my skincare routine. I found this brand randomly while browsing in Ulta one day and decided to try this toner. I CANNOT BELIEVE how my skin has changed. I've been using this twice a day for three almost four weeks and my acne is GONE. I got one pimple on my chin the week before my period. Before, I would've gotten half a dozen deep and painful ones along my jawline. My skin looks so smooth, bright, my acne scars look lighter. I'm truly shook. I've never used a product that has improved my skin this much, this quickly. I will never buy another toner, I'm a CosRX customer for life.
Hannah from Georgia
I bought this toner about 4 weeks ago and I absolutely love it. I have sensitive, combo, acne prone skin and its cleared up my clogged pores. It's even helped to reduce and get rid of my occasional cystic acne bumps. I was terrified of chemical exfoliants, but after I slowly introduced this into my routine every other day, I saw amazing results. I use it every day now and have no irritation. My post inflammatory hyperpigmentation from my older acne is fading too. I highly recommend this toner.
faith from georgia
Ive been using this for 3 years after ordering it from another site on a whim. My first introduction to AHA/BHAs and I recommend it to all my friends, especially now that its at Ulta. Ive tried other stuff from COSRX and I trust them with my life.

I got this to try to help with hormonal acne after going off the pill. It has done *wonders* for my skin. I use acne cleansers and was having a lot of peeling. This has helped get rid of the flaky skin with its gentle chemical exfoliation. Worth every penny.
Jen from Florida
I have normal/dry skin and it does not irritate my skin at all. Nothing special though but I gave it 4 stars because it is decent and was not harmful in any way. I like the smell too.
Sarah from Cerritos
This is amazing. I transferred this to a better spray bottle and spray it on my face and wipe it with a cotton pad. This has made my skin so soft while eliminating any little bumps I had. I use it only at night
Dragunballdrea from United States
I have oily/sensitive, acne prone skin and this toner worked amazing for me! I'm almost finished with my first bottle and will be repurchasing. After the first months use, I noticed a minimization in my pores appearance and my breakouts weren't as intense. I stopped using for a week to try a different toner but found myself coming back to this. It didn't irritate or make my skin feel dry. It's an amazing toner that helps prep for its next steps!
Juliet from Plainfield
I've tried a few of the toners from this brand and I do absolutely love this one. And have repurchased it a few times now. Completely gentle for people that are new to AHA/BHAs.
LJ from Michigan
I had been using another AHA/BHA Toner from a brand not carried by Ulta (Paula's), and hadn't really noticed a difference. When I ran out of that and wanted something with quicker shipping I decided to try this, and think it works for my skin WAY BETTER. The price is better for the amount as well. Looking forward to trying more from this brand!
Chris from USA
A great every day product. I use it every day for toning after cleansing and before moisturizer.
Nicole from Okc
So, a lot of the bad reviews say that this didn't do a lot for their skin. I kind of agree BUT I loved it as an introduction to aha/bha exfoliation. This is super duper gentle. I noticed that when I use it every single day, my breakouts were fewer and farther between. I also like that it brings moisture back into your skin in preparation for serums! I will definitely purchase again. 4 stars because it's not revolutionary but it is nice on the skin and caused no issues!
Kayleigh from Saint Joseph
So when I first got this toner spray, I've heard many good things from Cosrx and heard this toner was a good choice is had good exfoliating factors that could help with my acne. A first I thought it was helping immediately but I'm almost done with my bottle and I don't see any difference. I also think that having the spray is kinda wasteful of the product than you could of concentrated a bit more if applied with a cotton pad or your hands. All in all, it's an okay product from my expereince and think if you're sensitive skin and have never used AHA or BHA gradually get yourself used it before using it everyday.
Jane from Wyoming
I use this product after my double-cleanse and before my serum/treatment stage in my evening skincare routine. I really like this toner, but my only complaint is the spray bottle. I feel like spray toners tend to waste product when you could easily just pour the toner onto a cotton pad. If you have sensitive skin or have never used AHA/BHA before, I would recommend starting off using it just 1-2 times a week, because it can be a little irritating. I've been using chemical exfoliators for a while, and I typically only use this every other night.
Nat from Los Angeles
This toner is amazing at keeping my skin smooth and soft! I have to wear a face mask at work for 9-10 hours so I developed a lot of irritations, like many people! I started using this at night and I love the results. My pores appear smaller and no more mask irritations.
Luvskinstuff from Michigan
I use this after cleansing and prior to serums. It doesnt seem like much at first but with consistent use it makes a difference in the redness in the tzone area and acne. I have hormonal cystic acne and when I spray directly and concentrate with blotting with cotton pad at the start of something developing, often times the next day it is reduced in appearance or gone. If a troublesome area is particular, I also add Mario Badescu drying lotion and it goes away before it becomes raised. Prevention is key for acne scarring so this is now an essential step for me morning and night. I wish I had this product when I was younger!
