Wonderful product for those who have never tried chemical exfoliation-extremely gentle, very mild and unlikely to cause irritation. I expected it to be a slightly viscous liquid, but to my surprise, this was very watery and hydrating. After my first application, I didn't really have very high hopes, I thought I'd have to wait a few weeks to see results, but to my surprise, I noticed that the harder sebaceous filaments(at least I think they were sebaceous filaments?) around my nostrils(where they're most congested) looked a little longer than usual. So I just rubbed them with my finger- and it fell out! It was such a mildly gross but very satisfying experience lol That area of my face has been very smooth and clear ever since, although it hasn't helped with the remaining sebaceous filaments even after two months of regular usage(I use it once a week on my entire face and an extra time just on my T-zone). I also noticed that the very occasional acne I get cleared up almost overnight when I used this, but I should add that acne usually goes away on its own in a day or two on my face, so maybe that was just my face doing its thing. Did not cause any purging. Great value for money, a single bottle is gonna last you a long time.... Read more

Like I said, it didn't clear the rest of my sebaceous filaments, which was my primary reason for purchasing this. It's also far too mild for those who are used to chemical exfoliation.... Read more

๐Ÿ“ Keep your skin happy with a straight shot of moisture from COSRX's BHA Blackhead Power Liquid. Crafted with acne-fighting ingredients like betaine salicylate, this effective serum works to reduce blackheads and excess sebum. Key Benefits: โ€ข Clears pore congestion with BHA acids โ€ข White willow bark and betaine salicylate prevent blemishes โ€ข Diminishes the look of blackheads and enlarged pores ๐Ÿ”˜ Ingredients: Salix Alba (Willow) Bark Water, Butylene Glycol, Betaine Salicylate, Niacinamide, 1,2-Hexanediol, Arginine, Panthenol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Xanthan Gum, Ethyl Hexanediol. ๐Ÿ”˜ Review: The first thing you will notice about this product once it hits your skin is its water-like texture. While there are no added fragrances there is a slight, but oh so faint, chemical-like smell, thankfully it fades after about two seconds. What I love most is that the texture of the product is nothing like I expected, it isn't greasy or slimy and is only slightly thicker than water. After double-cleansing, and toning, I apply two pumps of the liquid to my fingertips and gently pat it all over my face, avoiding the eye area and including the neck, letting the product naturally absorb into the skin. I skip using cotton pads since I end up wasting product that way. Ihave read several reviews that mention people's hands or fingers starting to peel from directly applying the product. I haven't experienced this but if you do, then I recommend applying it with a cotton pad. I also want to note that various sources will recommend you forgo toning and apply this product to your skin directly after cleansing. I've tried both ways and haven't a noticed a difference in the effects of the product. But since I really like the feeling of a squeaky clean and hydrated face, I've stuck with toning before applying the Blackhead Power Liquid. The product absorbs super quickly into the skin. After waiting about 15-20 minutes, I then move on to the next steps in my routine. The reason you want to wait before using the rest of your skincare products is that the time allows the product to work its magic and fully penetrate the skin. That way you get its full benefits. It's recommended you wait about 30 minutes before applying the rest of your products, however I typically don't have that much time before I have to rush out the door or pass out for bed. If you're going to add one product to your routine, I'd make it this one. Whether you're suffering from acne, blackheads or enlarged pores, this a game changer product that will definitely help. ๐Ÿ”˜ How to Use: After cleansing and toning, dispense 1 to 2 pumps onto fingertips and apply it to the areas of the face where blackheads occur....

If you have sensitive skin though, buy a sample first before getting the full size. Your skin might not be able to handle such a strong product right away.... Read more

Iโ€™ve used this for a couple months now and my skin has never looked better! Some people donโ€™t bother trying it out for even a week but when it comes to skincare you really need patience. I didnโ€™t purge much and I really liked itโ€™s texture! Iโ€™ve been breaking out a bit this week tho... Read more

The packaging looks really good but sometime the pump of it falls out? I have different cosrx products tho and it never happened, so I guess this was just broken... Read more

I also started having pimples on my chin so I decided to add chemical exfoliants on my routine hoping it would help with my skin problems. I've read that this was great for beginners of BHA so I bought one. This is runny and gets absorbed by my skin easily. This has a "plasticky" scent to it which I got used to over time. And for a first time user of a BHA product, it was surprisingly gentle on my skin. By using this 2-3x a week, I noticed that I have lesser breakouts and cleaner pores after a couple of months. I also noticed that my pimples would dry out faster or be less inflamed the morning after. I'm on my second bottle now and this still works fine, but I think my skin kind of developed a tolerance for this so I'm on the lookout for other BHA exfoliants on the market. ๐“ฆ๐“ธ๐“พ๐“ต๐“ญ ๐“˜ ๐“ป๐“ฎ๐“ฌ๐“ธ๐“ถ๐“ถ๐“ฎ๐“ท๐“ญ ๐“ฒ๐“ฝ?

Make sure not to mix BHA with the ingredients that aren't supposed to be mixed with BHA, don't be like me lol. And don't over exfoliate even though this is a much gentler type of BHA.... Read more

[Chemical Exfoliant] ๐Ÿ”ธThis product is my most favourite from Korean skincare list, Using this particular product from couple of years and I'll hook up to this forever. Have to thank @cosrx for this holy creation! ๐Ÿ”ธI hadn't gone through physical exfoliation or tools for removing blackheads. Before I start my journey with this product I did so much of ground work how to get rid of my blackheads & finally I choose thisโค๏ธ ๐Ÿ”ธWhy this BHA from @cosrx - It keeps your pores clean & minimise the appearance of pores. - Works on your clogged pores & removes dead skin - Skin feel lighter, smooth and hydrated by morning - And removing of blackheads takes minimum of 3months(twice a week in pm routine) ๐Ÿ”ธHow to use it (twice a week -- PM routine) apply on dry skin -Double cleansing -Pat dry - 2-3pumps of BHA is enough( for entire face/ T zone as required) leave it for 15-20mins, let it function properly. - moisturizer (try not to have any actives) ๐Ÿ”ธ Disclaimer: As it has acid content (4% of betaine salicylate --- very mild safe to use) try not to have with other actives and Don't use it in AM routine as it may cause irritation due to heat and acid content may lead to skin sensitivity [ALWAYS CHOOSE LESS % ACTIVES IN YOUR ROUTINE] ๐Ÿ”ธThis bottle is enough for one complete year (twice a week)...

I have been suffering from blackheads for a long time now and tried various methods to get rid of it. Physical exfoliation didn't give me the expected results. That's when I came across this product. I use this twice per week. I had to wait for more than a month to see any visible results. Other than Blackheads it also helped to mildly exfoliate my skin and clean my pores.... Read more

๐Ÿ•ท * HOLY GRAIL ALERT * โ–ช๏ธMY EXPERIENCE ๐Ÿ•ท I use it in my PM ROUTINE all over my face avoiding areas around my eyes. Very light weight. I use it on DRY SKIN after after washing my face with a gentle facewash, wait for 20-25 mins and then follow it with a hydrating toners/essence (optional) and then apply a generous amount of my Moisturiser. The application of the toner was so beautiful on my face, absorbs very quickly, sinks into my skin so well within few seconds. โ–ช๏ธPROS ๐Ÿ•ท Beautiful Water like texture, easy application on my skin. ๐Ÿ•ท Beginner Friendly & Budget Friendly ( it will easily last you a year if you twice a week ) ๐Ÿ•ท Very Short Ingredients list - Salix Alba (Willow) Bark Water (Controls oil and calms the look of redness), Butylene Glycol, Betaine Salicylate (Fights bacteria and decongests clogged pores), Niacinamide (Brightens skin and improves the appearance of pores) , 1,2-Hexanediol, Arginine, Panthenol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Xanthan Gum, Ethyl Hexanediol. ๐Ÿ•ท Very Hydrating. Salicylic Acid is usually drying but I woke up with a hydrated moisturized and plump skin everytime I used this. ๐Ÿ•ท My Skin loves BHA, so I see results pretty quickly. Just after 4-5 uses, most of my blackheads disappeared. My skin felt clearer and healthier. ๐Ÿ•ท Excellent For Oily/Combination Skin. ๐Ÿ•ท As I have used BHAs before it did not cause any purging or breakouts.... Read more
