COSRX Hydrium Smoothing Set Review

3:12:00 PM


Hey ladies I've got another skincare line for ya! I was one of the lucky few who got picked by Style Korean Global for their #trymereviewme of the COSRX Hydrium Smoothing Set.

The COSRX Hydrium Line key ingredient is Vitamin B5 which is known as Panthenol. Vitamin B5 has moisturizing, regenerating & anti-inflammatory effects which is safe to use on All skin types.

The Hydrium line comes with two sets, a Soothing set and a Moisturizing Set. I picked the Soothing Set since it is curated for Acne Prone, Oily and Sensitive skin.
Some of you may already know that I have been trying to get rid of my pimples ever since my break outs started showing up last April. I am just glad that I finally managed to flatten them out and now I just wanted to use something milder to let my skin rest from all the acne products I was using before.

I have been using the entire COSRX Hydrium Soothing line for about 10 days now, morning and night. I also tried to incorporate it to my existing skincare routine just to see how it reacts with other products and I am really glad I did that coz now I know these products are awesome and been really enjoying it.

 Cosrx Triple Hyaluronic Moisturizing Cleanser
Retail Price: $13.00
🧼 What is it?
It is a rich foam cleanser fortified with triple hyaluronic acid to deliver moisture whilst thoroughly cleansing the skin of impurities.

🧼 What it does?
1. Helps deep cleansing with Coconut derived surfactants that gently dissolves impurities including makeup.

2. It minimizes stimulation due its creamy formula and enables you to gently cleanse away oil, sebum, and surface impurities without stripping the skin.

3. It is a Hydrating cleanser with 3 types of hyaluronic acid. It creates an invisible protective barrier while also increasing skin elasticity, keeping it hydrated and soft even after cleansing.

🧼 What I like about it...
- comes in a 150ml squeeze type tube, which I find very convenient
- a little goes a long way, I only need a pea size amount to cleanse my entire face since this lathers well with a tiny amount of water
- smells fresh and not overwhelming
- I can use it for double cleansing
- leaves my skin feeling fresh and hydrated
- does not leave my face feeling dry or tight every after use

🧼 Quick Tip:
If you are using this to remove makeup, I would recommend using any type of face cleansing brush with it. You will have that squeaky clean feel without the dryness.

Overall I enjoy using this cleanser since it is really mild yet still does the job while leaving my skin well hydrated. But I love using on mornings since it really helps my skin feel refreshed and hydrated. I just prefer using stronger cleansers at night for my acne

🧼 My rating: 4 out of 5

I have been using this toner for the past two weeks, both morning and night. My skin just needed some rest from harsher ingredients and I must say, I liked how soothing and calming this is. I also noticed that my skin has become more plump and hydrated, but not oily.

I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a soothing and calming toner. To put it simply, it does what it claims to do.

Overall, I am enjoying the entire line. I appreciate that everything is mild, lightweight and soothing on the skin. None of the products feel sticky nor greasy. My fave among the bunch is the Toner and the Ampoule for its thin watery consistency and fast absorption. I also like that I can layer the ampoule with my other serums. Their is really nothing special about the sheet mask, other than the sheet itself is made of biodegradable material, so its guilt free when you throw it out. The main ingredient of this line is Vitamin B5 which might help maintain anti-inflammatory effects during pregnancy. However I would highly recommend consulting your OB doctor before using.
