Review: Cosrx AHA/BHA Clarifying Treatment Toner

Hello, how long has it been? ... Almost a full year, thank you to anyone still knowing the existence of this blog. m(_ _)m
Being a student, work and stress piles on until summer comes, so here we go again!

I'll start off light with a review of one of my favorite products recently.
The Cosrx AHA/BHA Clarifying Treatment Toner!

Please excuse the cheetah print background and terrible lighting, I moved to a new place and no longer have my beloved wooden table. :(

This toner contains AHA and BHA, a reddit post from /r asianbeauty explains it much better than I would have. But in a nutshell, AHA stands for Alpha Hydroxy Acid, which helps with wrinkles, and BHA stands for Beta Hydroxy Acid, which helps with inflammation and acne. And here's a simple chart by hoo.joo skincare which also summarizes their proponents. And together they treat many common skin problems.  

The toner come in simple plastic spray bottle packaging, nothing fancy. I personally wasn't used to a spray toner, since I've always used the ones that dispenses on to a cotton pad, but I'm loving this now. It's efficient, less waste of product and cotton pads, and the mist is refreshing. It's semi-travel friendly, due to it's plastic packaging, but somewhat large size. 

There's practically no scent to it, and when sprayed feels very light and moisturizing. I usually use my clean hands to gently tap the product on my face for an even distribution and better absorption. It usually becomes absorbed in around 5 to 10 minutes, and I can feel my skin becoming moisturized compared to right after using my cleanser, and compared to some other alchohol-filled toners. And it does not leave any sticky or filmy residue. 

Now on to the effects of this toner; I've tried to use this everyday at least once a day, and honestly I don't want to go a day without it. I can say from my personal experience, it has reduced the occurrence of my pimples drastically, I would usually get at least a couple every week, and now I have at most a couple each month during the hormonal times. The moisturizing effects are apparent too, leaving my skin feeling supple and fresh. I'm only half way through and I've been using this for around 3 months. These are enough reasons for me to keep this goody around. As for anti-wrinkle effects, I haven't noticed anything drastic, which was thankfully expected as I'm still not at the age to develop them. But I hope it'll have some preventative uses. 

This was my first Cosrx product and it I was pleasantly surprised, so much so that I've ordered the blackhead and whitehead treatments too!

The price is not too steep, so I definitely recommend it! 
You can find it here at Jolse for $15 shipping included
Here at Wishtrend for $15 not including shipping.

I give this a solid 5/5, and probably one of my HG. :) 

Thanks for reading guys, I wanted to share this product even though I haven't updated in so long. I'm not going to have a definitive posting schedule but I will post whenever I have time. :)

See ya!
