Cosrx - Oil Free Ultra Moisturizing Lotion

10:28 PM


It's been a while ! That is the understatement of the year, and I won't beat around the bush. I talked about the coding issue in a few previous articles that's been bugging me and bringing me down, coding is my thing (or used to be) and even though I didn't code nor design this myself, the few issues with the pictures size, comments that have disappeared just completely discouraged me to say the least. Obviously, I've been busy as well, studies and personal projects filled up my time. If I have to be honest, I didn't even visit a blog nor did I went on my personal addiction the Asian Beauty reddit. Trust me that's saying a lot, when I'm dedicated to something I just do it earnestly. That's how I used to do with Wished Chronicles as well, and truth to be told, I still had articles prepared with pictures shot and edited. However, I've had issues with my mac and I didn't lose the pictures once but twice, even after I reshot and edited them. Buuuuuut , here I'm , I'm truly sorry for being a ghost, and here is the review of Cosrx' Oil Free Ultra Moisturizing Lotion

The other understatement of the year must be that Cosrx is a brand I love. I really don't have anything to say against them, My routine consists of primarily their products, so much, that it became kind of ridiculous. However, when this lotion came out I was just down to testing it without any prior thought to it.

 The lotion is packaged as any other Cosrx bottle packaging just like the Snail essence, it comes in a 100 ml simple bottle with the product dispensed through a pump.

The product

 The lotion in itself has kind of a gel like consistency which is clear and has a refreshing feeling on the skin. On top of that, it has some kind of a citrus-y smell. I'm really sensitive to smells but somehow I don't mind this smell has it isn't overpowering.

My thoughts

If you look into the ingredient list, you'd see Sodium Hyaluronate being a part of it. For some months now I've been suspecting Hyaluronate for breaking my skin out into tiny barely visible bumps/closed comedones. I'm not sure yet, honestly, I don't even know if I can be sure but I've noticed that my all time favorite mask  -which is this blog's most-read article- has Hyaluronate as one of its core ingredient and I do break out in tiny bumps after using it. But truthfully, that mask is so good that I can't help myself from using it, the fact that I have 3 packets of it also doesn't help. 

I've still used this Cosrx Lotion despite my little predicament and putting that issue aside, it's a really good product to put in the start of your routine. It's refreshing, light and moisturizing enough to feel it, and would be a great product as a booster for the next products you would use in your routine. If you don't have one, a nice cream after using this lotion would be perfect. My dry/dehydrated skin in the winter times loved this product as much as it could. However, I won't grade it as a holy grail for obvious reasons, but also because I'm always looking for the perfect product and thinking about it, it didn't provide a tremendous change in my skin although it did provide the moisture it says it would. For that reason, you absolutely need to combine this product with other moisturizing products as this one serves more like a core base for other products to follow.

This product is perfect for :

For just about any skin types as it provides moisture and is a perfect product to add into a routine whether it is small or bigger like an Asian beauty routine could be. I didn't comment on the "oil free" statement -and title- of this product, but if you do have dry skin, finishing by a nice moisturizing oil like Argan Oil could be beneficial to your skin and helps as a locking product in your routine.
