Soop Calming Aqua Serum

Best serum for soothing acne-prone skin! The About Me serum, uses tea tree ingredients to help regulate sebum and dead skin cells. This also really helps with reducing pore size and improving textured skin. This uses a base of Hinoki cypress water and six types of herb extracts to provide soothing effects. Irish moss extract and sugarcane extract provides gentle exfoliation. The capsules in the formula contain Allantoin, when rubbed onto the skin, they burst open, improving the moisture barrier and retention of moisture. This really helps balance moisture-oil levels and its suitable to be used before make up application. This is a serum that is great to use during the summer as it helps soothe the skin while moisturizing it. Recommended for oily, acne-prone and combination skin types.

Ceramide Shot Serum

Best seurm to help repair your skin barrier! This contains their Cerapool Complex which is great for sensitive skin that has been sensitized by external enviromental factors. This also contains a small amount of Macademia Seed Oil, which acts as a moisture barrier to prevent water evaporation. The serum has a white milky texture because of the emulsification of oil and emusifiers, which leads to intense moisture upon application. This also helps with skin texture by improving the skin's barrier, making it suitable to be applied AM or PM, even before makeup. This can be used by itself during the summer, and makes an excellent winter serum. Recommended to dry skin, sensitive skin with compromised skin barriers, and combination skin types.

Blemish Care Serum

Best serum for hyperpigmentation/tone up! This serum has amazing effects on pigmentation, pores, and skin texture. Especially for individuals concerned about uneven skin tone. This contains a high concentration of Damascus Rose Flower Water, which is the star ingredient for their Blemish Care line. It not only soothes and hydates the skin, but it's also an antioxidant. Due to the fact that this contains a small amount of AHA and ingredients that are unstable when met with sunlight, it's advised that if you do apply this during the AM, that you wear sunscreen, as you always should.

The Niacinamide 15 Serum

Another serum for improving uneven skin tone! While The Ordinary is more cost-effective, what COSRX shines in is in user experience. The high percentage of Niacinamide helps inhibit the production of melanin, which brightens the skin tone, it also helps in alleviate skin issues and promotes overall better skin health. COSRX also paires this with N-Acetyl Glucosamine which provides mild exfoliation to help increase the effectiveness of the Niacinamide. Zinc PCA is also included as well to boost the sebum regulating properties Niacinamide has as well. Recommended for oily, combiation, and dehydrated skin. Due to the high percentage of Niacinamide, sensitive skin should avoid this product or patch test it before using this!

Dry/Sensitive

I had been interested for a while in trying this ampoule and after reading good reviews, decided to get this small bottle. I like that this rather expensive product has got this option to try it out first instead of purchasing the full-sized product immediately. The packaging does a good job in reeling people in🤭 This ampoule mainly contains Bifida Ferment Lysate. Other notable ingredients are Niacinamide, Lactobacillus Ferment Extract, Cocoa and Beet Root Extract along with many more fermented ingredients which can help with the appearance of wrinkles and hydrating dull and dehydrated skin This one comes in a 10ml mini bottle with a cute little dropper💜 The texture is not that watery which I like. It makes it feel more rich and I also don't need to use much, about 3 drops for my whole face. It has a perfumed scent to it, one that some might find too strong for their liking, maybe to overtune the scent of the fermented ingredients. I don't mind it and my skin didn't react to it Even though it is a little too small to see any changes in my skin, I can say I like it and usage is comfortable. It pairs well with my currently opened products and gives a nice glow whenever I am applying it. I feel like this ampoule has helped my skin to be a little softer This size was a nice try and could make me want to get the full size one day. Only if the price was a lot lower though because as much as I liked it, I can't see it being as special as to justify the price for me personally
