So the long awaited review is finally here, if you guys followed me on Instagram you would have noticed that I've been obsessed with Cosrx's skin care products. I've waited a while before writing this review is because I wanted to try out the product first before sharing with you guys what I truly feel about this product, cause you know skin care never does magic instantly, it always take time to show its effect. 
In this post I'll focus only on the Cosrx One Step Pimple Clear Pads but don't worry I'll do a review on the rest of Cosrx products I have on a different post maybe a skincare routine post or an individual post for each products, do let me know in the comment box below which one you prefer. 
This Cosrx One Step Pimple Clear Pads has been awarded as one of Sure Beauty Awards 2016 skincare product. They really deserve this award! This product is really good and effective to clear out blemishes. 

Cosrx One Step Pimple Clear Pads have been my ultimate fav from all the products I've got from them but it doesn't mean it don't like the rest, I LOVE them too but this one ease the hassle of pouring my usual toner into a cotton pad ( I know its a very simple act) but after getting your hands on Cosrx One Step Pimple Clear Pads you'll most probably know what I meant. You just need to swipe it over your face like you'll do with your toner and let the essence set on your skin before moving on to the next skin care. Very easy, effective and convenient!

This product claims to reduce acne breakouts and promote clearer skin. Promotes exfoliation of dead surface cells resulting in enchanced cellular renewal with Betaine Salicylate leaving skin cleaner, clearer and blemish free. 

(Betain Salicylate clears dead skin cells without irritation and makes clear skin tone. It’s a trouble&sebum care pad accomplishes matte skin by clearing skin trouble, sebum, and oil.)
1. After face wash, sweep lightly according to skin texture with 1 pad.
2. Then apply basic skin care products.3. After use, make sure you close the cover.

Salix Alba(Willow) Bark Water, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Betaine Salicylate, 1,2-Hexanediol, Panthenol, Allantoin, Arginine, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Sodium Hyaluronate,Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil,Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil , Ethyl Hexanediol, Sodium Hydroxide

My Empty [Old version]
Since I've used up my first container, I've spotted that they've made improvements to their packaging with I opened up my new container. Below I'll let you know what are the differences between the old and new packaging. Nothing major was changed but one important part was changed and I personally feel its the smartest improvement they've made. 

 The newest packaging has a plastic cover that fits perfectly on the top cover of the container so that it secure the container and helps to avoid the solution inside the container from drying up. Even though I've not experienced any dry pimple pads on my first container because I kind of finish it within a month hahahaha. So one container contains 70 pads, because when I first got my hands on this 
product I've used it for both my morning and night routine so yeah I finished it up in a flash.  

Comparing the new innovation they made to the packaging it's totally an awesome improvement. The old ones only got a piece of seal which wouldn't seal the container perfectly because once you've opened up the seal it kind of wrinkle so in comparison to the new ones, the old container may have dry pads if one opens it and leave it on the self for a long period of time because the seal doesn't tightly secure the container like their new packaging. 
New Ones [Half way gone]

Same Exterior
Aside from that there are no other major change in their packaging the cover, container and sticker look pretty much the same. So my thoughts on this product is very positive, after using it continuously for couple months now I've felt the changes and improvements on my skin. My skin appear more clear and my acne scarce dark spots start to fade also. I also notice that if I feel like an acne is going to appear, I will usually just glide the pad over on that part more so that it'll get more solution and on the next day or two I'll see the acne which was planning to appear disappear. I first got introduced to this Cosrx product through Meejmuse, a Beauty Youtuber and from then on I was curious about Cosrx brand and started my research until recently I decided to get them. Special thanks to Jennie who hassle a lot to get all my Cosrx products on her last visit to Korea.

Now I combine using my AHA/BHA toner as a substitute for this pimple pad in order to save up. Overall I love it and if I use this pimple pad I would simply skip toner step and jump into moisturizer right after the pimple pad. The Pimple pad leaves my skin feeling clean and even though there is a slight herbal scent to it, it's not overwhelming so I don't really mind the scent. But if you're sensitive to smell you may want to consider it. However considering all its goodness this scent isn't something that would stop me from using it.  I would rate it a 9.5/10  because it's not available here, but the product itself is love!  

If you wish to buy Cosrx products you may want to check out their website http://cosrx.kr/ or Wishtrend . Too bad their products aren't available at any store here in Jakarta, but I really wish they would open up a store here or if not maybe any dept store would carry Cosrx brand so their products will be easily accessible by us (their product enthusiasts) because even though some online stores sell their products but I personally love to shop my skincare directly from the store.  

Hope you enjoy this post ! 

Love, Stevie
