Holy grail! The combination of Galactomyces and niacinamide is such a winner. I've used it for 1.5 years and now it's a staple in my routine. This essence works slowly, but the effect has been worth waiting for. It makes my skin less dull looking, more even feeling, and helps with balancing my oily skin. Therefore, I think it's fair to say that this is a product that makes the skin generally healthier. It has never irritated my skin, and it is easy to combine with other products with active ingredients. I'll repurchase this forever! 🥰... Read more

Nothing to note. Some people might feel like it's taking too long for it to work. I had used 60 ml before I realized that it was having an effect on my skin.... Read more

It was a little underwhelming, but I did enjoy using it. As a brightening essence I didn’t see much though. Compared to other galactomyces essences this wasn’t as brightening and hydrating so I probably wouldn’t repurchase this, but I did enjoy this product in general.... Read more

One of my favourite essences. • I alternate between this essence (morning) and the snail mucin essence from COSRX (night), this duo has really improved my skin: super hydrating/moisturizing, I experience less breakouts over time, and my tone is more even! • No fragrance, and does not cause any irritation or bad reactions • Super easy to apply on my face, as it absorbs it well and fast • The consistency is not watery but also not slimy like the snail mucin. I would say something between the two, but it's like really agreable to apply it on my face and neck • Other products with fermented ingredients that I used were essentially toners. I find that great to have an essence with another consistency to use This product will always belong on my shelf, for sure! 😊... Read more

This product give my skin soothing effect. Whenever i have red pimple, or pimple that already pop out, i use this essence immediately to calm my skin. I use it on the night, and the next two morning that red area around the pimple is gone. And the pimple it self become much better. This also can prevent your skin from having acne scars....

I'm a fan of Cosrx products and wanted to see if this one was more effective than the AHA/BHA Clarifying toner. At first, I thought it had a thick consistency, but after applying it, it resembled water. It aided in the reduction of wrinkles and the hydration of the skin. It does not, as expected, help with the occasional breakout. This one, I believe, is better suited for those looking for an anti-aging effect.... Read more

Using this for almost one month..feeling really comfortable. Makes my skin supple, reducing bumps. Applying after washing face, pat on the face. No scent. 1bottle goes much time. Really love cosrx products... Read more

My first galactomyces essence was COSRX Galactomyces 95 Tone Balancing Essence. This product's packaging is straightforward, with a white base box and purple accents. The bottle is also a pump type made of durable plastic, making it simple to dispense the essence. The texture is a little runny, but the color is a little thick. After use, the absorption rate into the skin is also quite fast. In terms of fragrance, I don't detect any, so I don't believe I'm using fragrance ingredients in this product. This product's effectiveness, in my opinion, is quite slow and appears to yield no results.... Read more

I'm not sure why I didn't see positive results after using this; instead, I saw negative results on my skin. After two weeks of use, my skin reacts negatively with severe breakouts. I thought it was purging, but the negative effects went away when I stopped using it. It appears that I am incompatible with this galactomyces.... Read more

I love how this product is so lightweight and non sticky compared to similar essences from other brands. It sinks into your skin after a few massages, leaving it soft and smooth. Not sure about the brightening part, but it definitely moisturises the skin well, and is not heavy on the oily T-zone. There is no obvious scent, and the pump head design is really hygienic and convenient, which are plus points for me. I use it day and night, currently on my third bottle, absolutely loving this product at its given price point!... Read more

This product is really good for my pimples. So I use this product as a pimple spot remedy, for 2-3 days the pimples flare up. It doesn't make acne breakouts either. There is a fresh fragrance but like little bits there is a smell of alcohol. The texture is liquid, the applicator is in the form of a pump, 1 1/2 pump is enough for the pimples, the packaging is simple, and it absorbs quickly, it dries up too quickly to go to other skincare steps. (Even though I look at the review, it looks like it's good and it fits, but fortunately there's no negative effect, so it's nothing to loose when I try... Read more
