Ok! Well I am a 24 yr old female with combination skin. I am normal on my cheeks but oily in my T zone. I've dealt with severe cystic acne my entire life but after seeing a dermatologist and getting chemical peels and changing my diet, it went down drastically. Now I am just left with hormonal acne on my chin and some discoloration on my skin. So here is my brand new routine I started a week ago! Many of these products have made people break out but it's just about finding what's right for you :)

If you're looking into skincare, then definitely start a basic routine and get a good cleanser, moisturizer, and sunscreen if you don't already have them. Here's a few recs I have: cleanser moisturizer sunscreen. If you're really serious about treating pimples, then look into AHAs, BHAs or maybe even trying Differin. Only thing is that you have to be committed to wearing sunscreen every day if you go that route, and your skin WILL purge (get worse before it gets better).

u/allonsyyy · 5 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

The double cleanse, I just read all about that on /r/AsianBeauty! I got this low pH cleanser to use after this oil cleanser.

I can't say if it'll work either, I'm on day two. But that sub can, and does.

All the steps you're taking are in the right direction, but let's talk about product recommendations. You should start off with a basic skincare routine.

Cleanser: Cosrx Low Ph Morning Gel Cleanser - A good cult favorite, gentle cleanser.

Toner- Stri-dex Pads Maximum Strength - I have yet to find anything else that keeps my acne at bay as well as these do, holy grail status.

Moisturizer- [Mizon Snail Recovery Gel Cream] (https://www.amazon.com/MIZON-Snail-Recovery-Cream-fl-oz/dp/B00NTR9B6A/ref=pd_sbs_194_49?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B00NTR9B6A&pd_rd_r=GQARJSYA37GYHK6DDA84&pd_rd_w=xTj7a&pd_rd_wg=Anz1Z&psc=1&refRID=GQARJSYA37GYHK6DDA84) - This will moisturize and take care of acne scars.

Additionally, what helps me is to exfoliate twice a week, and I use Skinfood Black Sugar Mask Wash Off Exfoliator.

I would suggest wearing sunscreen, though this step isn't specifically to help your acne, it's just good to protect the skin from premature aging and hyperpigmentation. Assuming you have combo to oily skin I would recommend Etude House Airy Finish Sun Milk.

u/BONG_OF_JUSTICE · 3 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

For my body, I like using pre-soaked exfoliant pads, 'cause I'm lazy and cheap. Right now I'm using these Nip+Fab ones and they're pretty decent, but I'm planning on picking up these lactic acid ones next. If you're looking to dip your toes into the waters of AHA for facial use that you can also use on your body, then I'd recommend the CosRx AHA, which is great, but much gentler. (obligatory mention that if you begin using an AHA on your face, then daily sunscreen use becomes mandatory)

Undereye circles are genetic, so there's not much you can do topically to get rid of them. I know there's some people who anecdotally believe that products with caffeine in them can help with their appearance, but I've never tried any, so I can't really offer any specific advice there.

And yep! I alternate between the CeraVe foaming and the CosRx Good Morning cleanser, both of which are great low pH options.

u/ITLady · 3 pointsr/DecemberBumpers2017

I've found r/asianbeauty to be life changing. Basically, you need a SUPER gentle face wash and tons of moisturizer. I can tell that my skin is a lot oilier now, but because I know how to manage it and my hormonal acne, I haven't had many breakouts. When you use too harsh of a face wash, your skin freaks out and over produces oil (simplified explanation).

My super simple AB routine:

I also have oily skin! I love Cosrx low ph good morning cleanser. It does contain tea tree oil, so if you are sensitive to that, I would skip it. It is light on my skin and removes grime from the day really well without stripping my natural oils/moisture. I highly recommend it

u/Phanners · 3 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I do wash right after. I use this cleanser. I'm female but I'm sure this would work for a guy too!

u/4b3ats · 2 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Heya! I'm still a SCA newb, but I have similar skin to what you're decsribing, so I figured I'd throw in my two cents.

My skin is sensitive and dehydrated. It's not necessarily oily, though it can be (I have normal/combo skin). The first thing that was recommended to me was a low pH cleanser, like this. It shipped really quickly too, which was nice (and it was super affordable). Second, invest in a good light-weight moisturizer, like this.

Here's what my current routine looks like, and while I've only been doing it for a week (and have fiddled with it some), I can already feel a world of difference (see not so much, but that will come with time).

AM: rinse face off with water, Witch Hazel toner, spritz, and then maybe moisturize (I've been moisturizing in the morning every other morning).

PM: cleanse, Witch Hazel toner, exfoliate (using this BHA up, and then getting a better one) every other day, moisturize, sleep pack several times a week

u/mo3w · 2 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Heyo, I recently swapped to the COSRX Low pH Good Morning cleanser after the Cerave Foaming Face Wash was found to be dehydrating my skin. However, when I initially started the switch, I noticed my skin seemed a bit sensitive and seemed to still be producing a good amount of oil. I tried using the Cerave Hydrating Facial Cleanser and it seemed to get rid of the irritation and lowered the excess oil production, but does not feel nearly as cleansing as the COSRX or Foaming Face Wash did.

Do you recommend I continue using the hydrating cleanser until my moisture barrier rebuilds and then swap back? If you look at my last post, I'm following most of the steps suggested (including applying Vaseline at night), but am still struggling with CFs on my nose (hard ones) and clogged pores on my cheeks and forehead.

Any recommendations?

u/jv_level · 2 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Hi and welcome! I tried answering earlier, but Reddit wasn't connecting for me. I know you already got some good advice from teddy, but in case you want more information or someone else it reading, here is what i wrote:

There are many things to help you on your quest for brightness! I got completely carried away here as this is the first comment I haven't address acne/dehydration in a looooooong time. Got a bit too excited looking at a different subject. So hopefully you find it helpful still!

First thing is that you definitely do NOT need to be washing your face 4 times per day plus the 1-2 extra times per week, which is what you would be doing with the two aveeno cleansers and Nip+Fab. In general, the best cleansers for your skin are pH-balanced (maintains your skin's acid mantle and general skin health) and are as gentle as possible. In basic routines, washing the skin is actually the most irritating step. For most people, washing their face as little as possible is best (barring things like getting physically covered in dirt). For example, with my drier skin I only wash my face with a cleanser about 3 times per week...I rinse with water in the mornings, and when I shower in the evening I do the oil cleanse method.

Second, if you are starting chemical exfoliation, you should be wearing sunscreen every day. UV still travels through the clouds and the sun still shines in winter! Glycolic and lactic acids make you sun sensitive so wearing a daily sunscreen is a necessity! (also I would take a look at EltaMD UV 46Spf. It has niacinamide which is good for evening skin tone...but it is a separate product rather than incorporated in your moisturizer).

So! What to do!

  1. The Aveeno cleanser isn't bad...I am slightly wary as it has added fragrance and sodium lauryl sulfate (and a bit of mica to make you sparkle. Just a bit! it's not glitter, but that's where the 'radiance' comes from I think), but it can definitely work for you. Alternatives: CosRx Good Morning Gel Cleanser (here), or the Innisfree Blueberry Cleanser (here). Or even just a basic CeraVe Foaming Cleanser. The CosRx has tea tree oil, so it might end up being too drying if you skin is sensitive to the tea tree.

  2. For your exfoliation, I would definitely go with a leave on product (either swipe pad-style or a serum). Washes tend to not be effective as they don't spend a long time on the skin. But if you are worried about the strength of a leave on product, do short-contact therapy and just rinse your face with water after 5-10min of applying your chemical exfoliant. Using a gentle chemical exfoliant will actually provide a more even exfoliation and is more gentle than physical scrubs, which are dependent on things like how hard you push on the skin and how wet your skin is while scrubbing. One very popular product to consider is the Neogen Gauze Peeling Pads (here). It's a very gentle chemical exfoliant on a double sided pad which gives you a bit of chemical, a bit of physical. It also comes in three 'flavors'. Other options: Nip + Fab 5% glycolic pads (here). Or for serum style, the is the 5 or 10% lactic acid serums from The Ordinary. Or it you want to spend A LOT of money...Sunday Riley Good Genes is a raved about product with lactic acid. Lactic acid is larger molecule size than glycolic, so it is more gentle...I would say the 10% would be on par with a 5-8% glycolic. For a gentle physical only exfoliant, I would look at the Skinfood Rice Wash Off here. The grains of the scrub are quite large and rice is supposedly a brightening ingredient! But you can also just use a cloth in the shower to physically exfoliate (remember! No more than 1-2 times per week!). When watching over over-exfoliation keep an eye out for lingering redness, stinging when you apply products, excess dryness and a general feeling of your skin being like 'plastic wrap'. Redness and irritation start first, so if that starts to linger, just stop exfoliating for a while and focus on moisturizing!

  3. The Kiehl's Vit C is a good starter Vit C. Just remember to put it on bare skin directly after cleansing and even before your chemical exfoliants if you happen to use them in the same day. Vit C. was my favorite powerhouse ingredient in terms of evening skin tone. I now use the Drunk Elephant Day-Firma, but it's a bit expensive for a first jump in.

  4. A good moisturizer in general will make your skin look healthier/brighter, so I do recommend moisturizing in the PM as well as the AM. A good moisturizer will also help you handle any irritation that might arise from exfoliation, cleanser, dry weather, etc.... Also, something with niacinamide specifically might provide more benefit. Options with niacinamide: CeraVe PM (oldie, but goodie!), Beaty of Joseon Dynasty Cream, CosRx Overnight Rice Spa Mask, Mizon black snail all in one cream, Ponds Clarant B3 (2 versions here I think, one for dry, one for oily skin).

    Absolutely optional things (getting deep into skincare addiction here)

    Niacinamide is another great product for evening out skin tone and helps with the appearance of wrinkles! It also improves ceramide production in the skin which strengthens your moisture barrier and can make your skin look more bouncy/healthy. I would consider a niacinamide serum...Something like Stratia Rewind (only available here on their website) or the Holy Snails Shark Sauce. They both have licorice root extract which helps with skintone as well.

    If you want another hit of licorice brightening, you can take a look at the Acwell 5.5 Licorice toner. This would be applied after your actives (chemical exfoliants/vitamin c), before serums and moisturizers. Some people do a '7-skin' method of layering on this type of hydrating toner to really give your skin a big drink of water! Of course you don't have to do a full seven layers, but even 2-3 might give you that extra little sumthin' sumthim' of bouncy, bright skin!

    Also First Treatment Essences...they are essentially very watery layers applied just after your actives, before toners. They contain a yeast extract that some absolutely people swear by to get dat glow! The classic here is the SK-II FTE, but it costs like a million bucks. The Missha FTE or the Secret Key Rose Edition are dupes. The CosRx Galatomyces 95 Whitening Power Essence is also similar (in asian brands they often use the word whitening in place of brightening..don't be alarmed, it is not a skin bleach!).


    Anyways, I'm rambling on now. I hope you find something useful in there! Remember, you know your skin best, so please ignore advice that won't work for you. Good luck!

How do I patch test cleanser correctly? Length of time, what to look for in results, etc.

Cosrx Low Ph Good Morning Gel Cleanser should arrive in my mailbox today. I figure I'll wash half my face with it for....two weeks? And cleansers aren't supposed to cause purging, so if I end up with breakouts soon, abandon the cleanser? I'm mostly concerned for the cystic type acne I get - how do I know if it's just me or the cleanser's late revenge?

I don't use a cleanser. I couldn't find one I liked, and got frustrated searching, so just gave up for the past....eh, year or two.

I need to add sunscreen to routine, though, so need something to take it off at the very least. Have used mineral oil and microfiber cloth before, but not sure I was happy with the results. So, here I am asking obvious questions, haha.

u/miscakes · 2 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I would really recommend getting better face wash, especially since you're buying Paula's Choice which isn't cheap. Cheap face soap options:

  • CosRX low pH

  • Equate or Neutrogena Oil Free Acne Wash

  • Cetaphil

  1. Super Booster would go after face wash and before toner
  2. Yes, I would suggest using the AHA at night, but since you're using a sunscreen it's not as big of a deal. If not, it would go after the Super Booster and before the toner.
  3. These are great for acne that has it's head (i.e. extractable). They suck out most of the goo, no extraction required, overnight (but I extract first because I'm bad too!). Otherwise, you could reapply a little of the AHA as a spot treatment, or get a salicylic acid spot treatment.
  4. I would recommend repurchasing if it works for you until your skin is used to the new products. However, it looks like a relatively simple ingredients formula. I'm on the snail train with /r/AsianBeauty, you could look there for possible new moisturizers. I recently bought cosRX's Oil-Free Ultra-Moisturizing Lotion with Birch Sap which is a light moisturizer. You may want to look towards moisturizers with more humectant ingredients (more moisturizing) if your skin feels tight or dry.

u/pascalines · 2 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I would forego the physical exfoliation cloth + African black soap, and replace with a low pH cleanser (to PlasticSquid's point, you don't want to use alkaline soaps on your skin!) and chemical exfoliation (gentler). For example, I use this Cosrx low pH cleanser: https://www.amazon.com/Cosrx-Good-Morning-Cleanser-150ml/dp/B016NRXO06

I suggest exploring AHA/BHA exfoliation to clear closed comedones and ward off picking. A lot of people say to use BHA for pores but personally I find AHA does a much better job for me because it exfoliates the skin "trapping" my comedones and removes dead skin that would have created new ones. I'm using Mizon's 8% AHA, but there are tons of options.

Just make sure to use sunscreen every day! You didn't specify in your AM routine whether you're using sunscreen.

You can use normal soap on the rest of your body, just not on your face. Use a facial wash for your face that has low pH e.g. Cosrx Good Morning Low PH Gel Cleanser, on top of the other examples mentioned by others :)

u/marley0609 · 2 pointsr/SkincareAddicts

I am very certain that you have dehydrated skin. Not the same as dry skin, though you may have that, too. Tight feeling skin, getting very oily very quickly, redness. Oily and dry at the same time. Your moisture barrier has been compromised. This will take time and patience to repair, but believe me, it is worth it. I once had very similar skin.

Fair warning, I myself use a mostly AB routine, and my product suggestions will reflect that.

Find a simple low pH cleanser. I like this one because it's cheap, easy to find, and lasts forever. Cleanse twice daily, with tepid water.

(I am a fan of the double cleansing method when wearing foundation and/or sunscreen. You can learn more about that here.)

Then I would work on finding light hydration that doesn't break you out. I have found that my skin absolutely loves multiple layers of light hydration. And that was key to restoring my barrier. Just putting one thick heavy layer didn't work because my skin couldn't/wouldn't do anything with it. But multiple light layers was something my skin could work with.

This, this, this, this, and this are all super suggestions. Pretty simple, basic, and gentle choices. No, you don't need to go buy all of them. Try one. See how your skin likes it after several weeks. Maybe add another. Or, some people like adding multiple layers of the same product.

Then find a humectant to layer on top, to seal moisture in. This is a very popular one. This, this, this, and this are all good choices.

Once you find a routine that your skin seems to like, stick with it for a few months. Like...3 to 6 months. It won't be an immediate fix. But over time you'll start to notice less of the tight feeling, less of the dry thin skin with an oil slick on top, less redness. Only then will you be able to see what your real skin type is. Maybe you start to see more dryness or flakiness, and the oil slick goes away. Then maybe you have drier skin. Or maybe the tight and dry feeling goes away but the oiliness stays. Then maybe you have oily skin. But until you heal your moisture barrier, nothing you throw at your skin will do any good.

  1. How many times should one cleanse each day? twice

  2. After washing your face and putting on moisturizer, is it normal for your skin to still feel slightly tight and dry? no

  3. When moisturizing my face, if I use something more watery it just feels like it dries up and takes all the moisture from my skin leaving it dry. Is this supposed to be normal? no

  4. If I put on more moisturizer afterwards, the oiliness gets too much and my face turns red. When that happens should I cleanse again and put more moisturizer on? Or should I use a cloth or something similar to wipe my face instead? keep blotting sheets on hand and blot at the oiliness (no rubbing)

  5. What should I be doing if my skin turns red and irritated? this is a sign that your skin is damaged - find gentle products that restore balance

  6. If I put on sunscreen my face gets oilier but still remains dry. What should I do during times like that? again, this should get better as your skin gets stronger

  7. How many times should one be using 8~10% AHA per week? if I were you, I would stop using this, at least for several months

  8. Would you agree that dry skin is generally darker and tougher and oily skin is reddish and blotchy? no, I think those are unrelated
u/wambrita · 2 pointsr/ABraThatFits

Seriously, /r/AsianBeauty saved my skin.

I wash my face with Cosrx Hyaluronic Acid Hydra Foam Cleanser in conjuction with something called a Konjac sponge and then I follow up with the Cosrx AHA after. Then as a moisturizer -particularly under makeup- I use their Snail Mucen product. Also, sunscreen is super critical, it helps prevent your hyperpigmentation spots from getting darker. I'm not a fan of the western sunscreens, so I use Shiseido brand. The smell is different than the regular stuff we're used to but it's not unpleasant. And there's no need to buy the more expensive stuff, this works out really well.

The facewash I use has a slightly high pH level, and it's okay for me because I immediately put on the AHA after because it somehow cuts down the pH level. This lower pH face wash is what my daughter uses, and it does a good job, she started using it and the breakouts pretty much stopped, although she's apparently prone to blackheads on her nose so I got some BHA product for her, and I also got her a konjac sponge as well, so hopefully it provides her with some results. The sponge is super soft, but it does a surprisingly good job of exfoliating; without that feeling of scrubbing your skin with sandpaper. Heads up, with the konjac sponge there's lots of different ones out there and they pretty much work all the same; even the cheaper ones.

If you're gonna try exploring and experimenting with other products, be sure to try one product at a time, to make sure you don't have a reaction to it! Of course you probably already knew that, but I figured I'd throw that out there in case you didn't.

u/krissycole87 · 2 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Oh youre welcome!! Something about your post I really related to.
Rosehip oil is life. Omg. I looooove it and so does my skin. I mix it with my snail cream and it makes this magical goo that my skin literally drinks up so fast its crazy. Its kind of a think oil by itself but mixed with a moisturizer its like magic haha
Yeah its crazy, I lurked r/compulsiveskinpicking for like.. ever before I actually subscribed. It was as if the day I subscribed was the day I had to admit to myself that I was indeed a skin picker. Almost like joining AA or something "hi my name is krissy and Im a skin picker." haha but it was actually empowering, and so helpful knowing I wasnt alone.
For cleansers I have recently been doing Ole Henriksen's Balancing cleanser in the morning, and then I use Kose speedy Oil Cleanser at night. The kose rinses cleanly so I do not double cleanse, I only use that. Its part of my efforts to moisturize like mad at night. Oil cleansing also helped me curb my picking because I do the full process of letting it sit for a few mins then massaging it for a few minutes and I feel like I can feel my pores being cleaned and that is somehow super satisfying.
I just got my bottle (today! woo!) of CosrX low pH morning cleanser to replace the OleHenriksen in the morning. I decided to switch because of how much Ive come to love Cosrx and their products seem to really agree with my skin. Sometimes I feel like Ole's can be drying (because its part of their acne/oily skin line, in fact its basically the last product in my routine aimed at acne and its getting replaced). I can report back later with the findings but it comes highly recommended on this sub as a gentle cleanser.
The snail cream omg. I became a believer almost instantly on the slug life. I have both the snail power essence and the snail all in one cream from cosrx. I love love love them. I use the essence in the morning before my moisturizer and I use the cream at night mixed with my rosehip as my second to last step before my overnight mask. Sometimes just for fun Ill use the essence at night before my other serums too. I honestly cant get enough. I think its because its so healing that I feel like I see improvement in any blemishes and scars every time I use it. Of course, YMMV but seriously Id take my snail to a deserted island with me.
My overnight mask also comes from Cosrx, the honey overnight mask, I may try their rice one after I finish this just for fun, but I am completely happy with the honey one. Its a good occlusive on its own, but sometimes I will even spot treat over top of it with vaseline on blemishes and areas where I deal with scarring.
And definitely dont worry about the questions. You shouldve seen me firing off questions to everyone on this sub when I first got into it!! Im glad to help :)

u/CinnaStacks · 2 pointsr/AsianBeauty

First of all, I am an employee at a major western beauty retailer in none other than the field of skin care. I am very familiar with ingredients and quite savvy at building skin care routines to fit my clients' needs... and I'm proud of it. That being said, I've found that many of the products my employer offers are too harsh or contain ingredients I don't agree with; in addition, we don't sell a huge variety of AB, at least not enough to satisfy my liking.

SOOOO, this is kind of new territory for me. I know one thing for a fact: I LOVE love LOVE snail. Below, I have a tentative list of AB products I have researched and have added to my Amazon.com cart and would love to hear from this community about my choices. I would love to hear recommendations as well. Below, I'll list the products by AM or PM routine (as I've planned).

I have VERY oily skin as well. I don't want to tell you what to do with your routine... With that being said, I think for your skin type, your morning routine might be too focused on moisturization. I used to be the same way and would try and do the most morning and night, but then I felt like I could not even wear makeup because even the most matte finished products would leave my makeup falling off my face.

I recently changed things up for my skin type and have seen awesome results in how my makeup wears.
I now start by washing my face with a light gel cleanser (drunk elephant Beste™ No. 9 Jelly Cleanser, COSRX Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser ), then toning with a rose water witch hazel (I only do this step when I think it will be a particularly hot day), then I use a Vitamin C Serum ( Timeless Skin Care 20% Vitamin C Plus E Ferulic Acid Serum ). This serum is NOT oily or tacky, and is not meant to moisturize. I only use it to help brighten my acne scars, which has been a life-changing product for me. Lastly, I do an SPF with hyaluronic acid (CeraVe Facial Moisturizing Lotion AM SPF 30) which adds hydration without being moisturizing! It is super light and has a whipped texture.

I have not found a primer that I love for mattifying my super oily skin but would love to hear anyone else's suggestions. Or a sunscreen that acts as a primer? I am definitely a fan of lessening the products used in the AM so any dual-use products are a plus for my oily skin type!

If you have acne (or don't) the best cleanser I can personally recommend is the low ph good morning cleanser by Cosrx (Link to product I highly reccommend buying the product from Jolse because they are the one company that i for sure without a doubt have the real product and not a fake on amazon)

Moisturize nightly and daily and use sunscreen daily. Nuetrogena Water Gel is a great moisturizer and doesn't break me out and the Biore water essence is a great sunscreen.

As for everything else I highly reccommend going to r/skincareaddicition and r/asianbeauty (asian skin care has extremely improved my skin, Cosrx is an amazing korean skin care brand)

So this is the [oil cleanser] (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000V2FBAQ/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o09_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1), this is the [low ph cleanser] (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B016NRXO06/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1) and an essence is like a serum but less concentrated. This is the [essence] (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00PBX3L7K/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o07_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1) I use. It has snail secretion which sounds gross but is believed to stimulate collagen and elastin and to improve the skin's texture. There's a lot of debate about it's effectiveness but I personally believe it has helped my skin retain moisture greatly. Overall, I use the oil cleanser to remove any makeup and sunscreen on my face. The low ph cleanser is basically to bring acidity to my skin which the toner balances out. Always remember to patch test every product you use especially if you have dry skin because it tends to be more sensitive. Also, check out the asian beauty sub reddit. There's a lot of great information.

Hey guys,
Although it is not that noticeable from the pictures in realty they appear worse. I have been trying on this routine for around two and a half weeks now but I am see insufficient improvement. Here is my schedule that I got from the awesome user skunkpaw who helped me get started.

My daily routine:

CosRx Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser

Pyunkang Yul Essence Toner

Stridex Maximum Strength pads

Gold Bond Ultimate Restoring Lotion

These are pics after a shower and after putting on moisturizer and taking a nap the marks appear to be more subtle but I have an shinier/oily face.

u/yoda_33 · 1 pointr/AsianBeauty

Hi, I'm new to all of this. I'm going to purchase these items - probably tomorrow. I'm aware that I have to start with baby steps. I've read that I should start using only the moisturizer then slowly add the others so I see which product responds well with my skin and to make sure to patch test.

I'm just not sure how to put these in a AM and PM format, mind helping me out so when it's time to use all of this in a routine, I'm more confident in what I'm doing, please?

Skin Type: Oily / Combination / Occasional Breakouts| Country/Climate I'm in: USA/Spring|

Top Skin Concern: My skin isn't really smooth or clear. I have blackheads and maybe tiny whiteheads, but there around my whole face like super tiny pimple rocks. It doesn't like bad, only when I'm close up the mirror. I also break out around my check and mouth area.

Oil-based cleanser: KOSE Softy Mo Facial Cleansing Oil Speedy

Low pH Cleanser: Cosrx Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser

Moisturizer: COSRX Oil-Free Ultra Moisturizing Lotion

Ance/BHA: Cosrx Bha Blackhead Power Liquid 100 Ml

Sunscreen: Biore Aqua Rich

Spot treatment -[Cosrx] Acne Pimple Master Patch 24EA

Cosrx Low PH Gel Cleanser: Makes my skin feel clean and never irritates my skin

Biore Aqua Watery Essence Sunscreen: I've bought more bottles than I can count. Love this because it doesn't leave a white cast and dries matte (isn't sticky either)

u/anxious_enfj · 1 pointr/Accutane

Don't worry, just focus on healing it! I really wanna recommend that you use a low pH cleanser on your back. This was critical for me clearing up my bacne, because it helps maintain the acid mantle on your skin that fights off P. acnes, the acne-causing bacteria, among others. My personal favorite that I have used on both my face and back is from a South Korean brand called CosRX. Their products are used by pretty much EVERYONE in the /r/asianbeauty and /r/skincare communities, so a lot of people can speak for this cleanser's efficacy. It's low pH and contains tea tree and a gentle form of salicylic acid. I've gone through 4 tubes, easily. Here's a link to buy on amazon: https://smile.amazon.com/Cosrx-Good-Morning-Cleanser-Ounce/dp/B016NRXO06/ref=sr_1_3?crid=2MFRIPG7GPMQL&keywords=cosrx+low+ph+good+morning+gel+cleanser&qid=1555012248&s=gateway&sprefix=cosrx%2Caps%2C210&sr=8-3

u/charlottehaze · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

Just started Accutane (Claravis), 60mg/day yesterday, and have changed up my routine recently based on lurking around this sub and r/Accutane. Any general comments/feedback would be much appreciated!

Skin type: Oily for sure, but I am positive it's about to become dry with the Accutane. In changing up my routine a few weeks ago, I tried to pick products that seemed to work for people with both skin types generally (maybe just with different frequencies of use) so I could use them before and after I finish the course.

Current routine:


Cosrx Low Ph Good Morning Gel Cleanser to cleanse

Klaris Supple Preparation Facial Toner for toner

Cicaplast Baume B5 Soothing Multi-Purpose Balm Cream for moisturizer

Sun Bum SPF 30 fPVNM Sunscreen, Original Face Stick -- I know it's not the best, but I live in Portland/Seattle so the need is not as dire as in other places


Lush Ultrabland to remove makeup
Remove makeup

Cosrx Low Ph Good Morning Gel Cleanser to cleanse

Usually after cleansing I use a mask -- I had been using more acne-targeting masks, but since I am switching to sheet masks, which I used to only use occasionally. Right now, I have Benton Snail Bee High content Sheet Mask Pack and Dermal Korea Collagen Essence Full Face Facial Mask Sheet, but I also really like Origins Drink Up-Intensive and Cosrx Ultimate Nourishing Rice Overnight Mask. When I need spot treatment, I am obsessed with Cosrx Acne Pimple Master Patch

Then I go back and do -- Klaris Supple Preparation Facial Toner for toner

Cicaplast Baume B5 Soothing Multi-Purpose Balm Cream for moisturizer

Edit: I used to use (and still have left some) of Lush's Herbalism. I am not sure I should keep using it on Accutane, since it exfoliates, but any commentary on that would be appreciated!

> COSRX's Good Morning Gel Cleaner

This one:


Have you ever tried Kyoku or Cerave Hydrating Cleanser (I like the former but not a fan of the latter - find it to hydrating and feel oily right after)? If so, how does it compare?

u/alanayvonne · 1 pointr/AsianBeauty

Hada Labo Rohto Gokujun Hyaluronic Lotion Moist I have found that layering a lot of thin layers has been the most helpful for my routine. This is my favorite toner by far. There isn’t really any fragrance and it doesn’t dry sticky for me.

I don’t have specific products to recommend, but I can list my routine for you and you can see if you can get some ideas.


  • wash with water
  • Holy Snails Shark Sauce
  • Hada Labo toner
  • CosRx 96 Snail Mucin
  • Hada Labo Milky Lotion
  • CeraVe in the tub
  • Innisfree Orcid eye cream
  • Can Make Mermaid UV gel sunscreen


  • wash with Cosrx Low PH Good Morning Gel Cleanser which I put in a foaming pump. I like it a lot better foamy
  • active: either 2nd Shark Sauce, CosRX AHA, CosRX BHA, or tretinoin I have acne so I gotta keep that under control
  • Hada Labo Moist
  • Hada Labo Milky Lotion
  • Benton Snail Bee Steam Cream
  • Innisfree Orchid eye cream
  • CeraVe in the tub

    I’ve tried a few of the Mizon Snail essences/gels but I’ve had better luck with CosRX and Hada Labo. I also love tried stuff off r/asianbeautyexchange i hate buying stuff that doesn’t work out.
u/fawndolly · 1 pointr/AsianBeauty

Is it safe to buy from Amazon sellers so long as they have good product ratings and feedback? I want to buy Canmake Mermaid Skin Gel UV, Baby Pink Mineral BB Cream, Cosrx Good Morning Gel Cleanser, and Etude House Lovely Cookie Blusher. Help much appreciated!

u/regretinmyname · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

Thank you for replying!

Here is everything i've picked out (all recommended by the users here in ScA)

Cleanser: Cosrx Low Ph Good Morning Gel Cleanser 150ml by Cosrx

Exfoliate: [Gycolic Lactic AHA/BHA Clarifying Cleanser C2 (150ml Mild Citrus Scent]

Spot removal: Naissance Neem Oil 250ml Certified Organic 100% Pure

Moisturiser: Oilatum Natural Repair Face Cream 50ml

I got all these todays, and ive just done my first ever routine. Neem oil has a very peculiar smell. Kinda smells like cinnamon and fish combined. Gross but if this is the cost of clear skin, so be it.

So when i apply the cleanser do i wait like a few minutes for it to dry on my face? or do i wash it out? And do i apply neem oil before or after the moisturizer? if i apply it before, should i do it straight after i apply the neem oil (or vice versa)

Thank you for helping a noob!

u/bugeatmud · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

I was doing it nightly. The products I use don’t strip your face or dry it out so it was safe to use daily. In the mornings I would either rinse my face with water or the Cosrx foaming cleanser.

u/AGracefulSeal · 1 pointr/AsianBeauty

Hey guys, I'm transitioning towards AB products and was thinking about getting some cleansers since I'm running out.

For my 1st cleanser, I plan to get the KOSE oil cleanser but I'm not sure between the KOSE SOFTYMO oil or liquid. Does anyone know if there's a distinct difference between these products?

For my 2nd cleanser, I'm planning to integrate CosRx Low PH Good Morning Cleanser into my routine. But I'm curious if I would be over exfoliating if I use this product before Stridex since the CosRx states that it contains a BHA. Or is it ok to use them both since I'll rinse off the CosRx cleanser before using Stridex?

Skin Type: combo | Country/Climate: USA West Coast |Top Skin Concern: Switching to AB products

AM: Rinse with warm water - Cerave Hydrating Cleanser - Cerave Moisturizing Lotion - Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence

PM: Cerave Hydrating Cleanser - Alternating between Stridex Red Box (2%BHA) and NipFab Glycolic Fix Pads (2.8% Glycolic Acid) x2 a week (Will probably stop using the NipFab Pads since they seem to break me out) - Cerave Moisturizing Lotion - Aquaphor

I'm not sure how much of a hormonal imbalance you have, so please take my recommendations with a grain of salt. I am a male with hormonal cystic acne - mine is caused from excessive stress. I would recommend going on Roaccutane. The UK has much better standards and practices when it comes to that drug, and it works great for many people. I did 3 rounds of it. And it helped a lot.

As for your routine, you're doing a great job at decreasing things that might cause flare ups. What has helped a lot for me is drinking a ton of water, and using facial products that are gentle and contain mild exfoliants (BHA and AHA). I've used this product after washing my face:


Alternatively, you could use this product instead of the one above since this product might last longer:


Both of these products have mild exfoliants to open the clogged pores and move the clogs to the surface. Western products can be harsh and cause irritation. What I do is wash the face with a very gentle soap (https://www.amazon.co.uk/Cosrx-Good-Morning-Cleanser-150ml/dp/B016NRXO06/ref=sr_1_4_s_it?s=beauty&ie=UTF8&qid=1486916031&sr=1-4&keywords=cosRX), then use one of the above-mentioned products, followed by a non-comedogenic moisturizer (https://www.amazon.co.uk/d/122/CeraVe-Facial-Moisturizing-Lotion-PM-3-oz/B00365DABC/ref=sr_1_1_s_it?s=beauty&ie=UTF8&qid=1486915842&sr=1-1&keywords=cerave+PM). I do this both day and night. In the day, I also put on a sunscreen after the moisturizer.

Just know that the skin can take up to 3 months for skin to turn over. So, be patient, and don't get discouraged when starting a skin regimen. It might take 2 months before you see a drastic change in your skin. Also, it seems that people have different opinions on this, but what has helped in decreasing cystic acne is icing the cyst. I take an ice pack and put it on the cyst for about 15 minutes at a time.

u/Destinyx3 · 1 pointr/AsianBeauty

We seem to have the same skin type and so far (still in the patch testing phase), I'm having luck with Cosrx Low Ph Good Morning Gel Cleanser as my second cleanser. I've tested 4 or 5 different cleansers before this one and so far so good :)

u/taukulele · 1 pointr/teenagers

asian skincare saved my ass last year lol nowadays i only get a one or two pimples a month


super basic stuff: cleanser, toner, moisturizer. that should probably be enough to at least save your skin.

cleanser: your og product. can make or break your skin.



toner: this is it kiddos.



moisturizer: goddamn important. just because you have oily skin doesn't mean you don't need a good moisturizing fix.



you only need one of these products from each step. i'm not the best at this stuff but i gave some links to help you guys. you just kind of slather the stuff on. sorry that the prices are kinda high but 'tis the price of skincare.

bonus: put this on after the toner and before the moisturizer.

u/jareths_tight_pants · 1 pointr/AskMen

To start you need a cleanser and a moisturizer and a sunscreen at a minimum. I recommend the CosRx low pH good morning gel for a cleanser. I’ve never seen it sold in stores. I buy mine on Amazon. The Cerave moisturizers are well liked and can be found just about anywhere. I like Biore watery essence for a sunscreen because it’s matte and doesn’t cause acne and can be worn under makeup but Neutrogena makes a good one that works for most people too. You can add serums for skincare concerns like acne, redness, uneven skin texture/color, or wrinkles but you don’t have to.

u/bekahfromspace · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

Your skin is very sensitive and you should never use scrubs or vinegar, they only act as irritants will make your skin irritated and flare up with more acne.

With combination skin this means you are both dry and dehydrated. Basically this means that you need to moisturize the fuck out of your skin.

Don't go anywhere near anything with alcohol in it as that is going to act as an irritant as well. Rehabilitating your skin needs to be handled gently and will take a bit of time but trust me, the patience is worth it.

You want to start out with a gentle cleanser and a gentle, hydrating moisturizer. Cetaphil products have alcohol in them and will only harm your skin.

Try the CeraVe Hydrating Facial Cleanser, or Cosrx Low PH Good Morning Gel Cleanser (you can use it any time). My preference is for the Cosrx as it has some tea tree in it that is super soothing for the skin. Both can be found on Amazon and depending where you are, you may be able to find CeraVe in a drug or grocery store.

For a moisturizer I would definitely check out the Cosrx Oil Free Ultra Moisturizing Lotion with Birch Sap for the mornings and the Hada Labo Gokujyun Super Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Lotion for night. The Cosrx is going to keep you hydrated during the day without feeling heavy on the skin which is perfect if you're using makeup. The Hado Labo is basically the best thing on the planet for anyone. It's great for all skin types and the addition of the hyaluronic acid is great for trapping moisture in your skin overnight and it helps with anti-aging. Both can be found on Amazon.

If you're wearing makeup you need to find a good cleanser that isn't going to strip you of the natural oils you need or be too rough on your skin. Oil cleansing with Jojoba oil is good, but I really think you should look into using Rice Water. It's super gentle and takes the makeup off without stripping your skin and won't leave you feeling dry and tight. Some people like to cleanse with the oil and just wipe everything off, but I like to gently cleanse to make sure I'm getting all the oils, make up, and general dirt that accumulates on your skin throughout the day.

There are other steps and products you can add that will help but this is a good starting point.

Please check out Renee a.k.a. Gothamista on Youtube. She discusses products that are best in each category, and most importantly what's best for each skin type. My skin has been absolutely perfect ever since finding her:

Cosrx low ph cleanser is the only one that doesn't dry me out. Dumb cheap too

u/aleisha3 · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

The Issue: My face is red all over, dry in certain spots, and oily in my T-Zone. I never used to have a problem with acne until I was about 22 and now I have adult acne. I seem to try new products all the time with the intention of trying one, knowing it works with my skin and sticking to it, but that never seems to be the case, they all react wrong. I picked at my chin a bit, I never used to pick either until one time I picked and a dried weird thing came out, and I know it's bad but I just can't leave them be. My pores are getting bigger, I'm starting to get spots that last after it's healed, my "rosy" cheeks are just busted capillaries... Here's my face in all of its glory: http://imgur.com/a/GvVFA

I don't separate from morning and night in my current routine. I was reading up on here that maybe I needed a pH balanced face wash so I started using this: https://www.amazon.com/Cosrx-Good-Morning-Cleanser-150ml/dp/B016NRXO06/ref=sr_1_1_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1473821316&sr=8-1&keywords=good+morning+face+wash+ph

Before I was using Acure's exfoliating scrub but thought I was exfoliating too much so I switched to coconut oil. Coconut oil seemed to work alright, but then when I ran out I switched to fractionated coconut oil because it seemed it would be easier to use a pump in the shower but it doesn't seem to be working. Nothing covers the red. After this summer I used SPF every day, a Cerave, then I lost it. I got a Mizon BB cream with SPF in it, but the way it attaches to my skin doesn't look good but I've been using it anyway. I use Mizon Snail Repair cream as well. I don't know if it's working. I don't know what to do anymore, it seems like every time I try something new I shouldn't be trying it but nothing works. Maybe I'm just getting older, but I hate my red skin.

I live in Rapid City, South Dakota.

u/thehelsabot · 1 pointr/waiting_to_try

The Korean brand COSRX makes some great, sensitive products with AHA and BHA. Using products with tea tree oil might help, but be wary of anything that could potentially alter your hormone profile. The basics of Korean skin care are consistent, everyday use of a clear step-by-step process. I suggest this site for how-to.

You don't need every step necessarily, but I would start slowly with 3-4 and build up slowly as to not agitate your skin. The important ones for you are going to be the two part cleansing, toning, essence, spot treatments and ampules, and light moisturizer-- so about six of the steps or so.

Here are some things that I find help, and seem to be very popular for acne prone skin. I have used all these, as well as my sensitive, acne prone DH and had success:

  1. Acne Patches

  2. A good toner with BHA & AHA

  3. A good essence/light moisturizer

  4. Good oil free moisturizer

  5. Good water-base face wash 1, and good face wash set with oil cleanser and water based cleanser, good oil based with added makeup removing

  6. Good spot treatment

  7. Some fun and cheap masks that sooth and treat your skin. I recommend one a week. Either Sephora or Tonymoly make some good ones.

    Finally, be very careful ordering similar "discount" products off amazon because it is rife with counterfeits from China. This can be dangerous as the contents of the product/ingredients are not necessarily listed correctly, which is a problem. Buying reputable brands from verified sellers or soko glam or Sephora is absolutely recommended. I get a lot of Amazon, but I always use Fakespot.com and also check the seller out carefully. If the well-known brand manufacturer is selling it direct to Amazon, that is a pretty safe bet.

    All of these thing start with the skin down, but also consider the bottom up. Look at your diet, look at your activity level, how often you clean your sheets, how stressed you are, and your general health. Have you been evaluated for gynecological or endocrine issues? It's a good idea to know that before you jump to conclusion. Make sure to consult a doctor, because sometimes our skin is a good indication of something off inside.

    Good luck and I am sorry you are suffering!
u/YourThoughtsHaveBeen · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

Right now I'm using Sebamed Clear Face Care Gel.. it's okay, better than nothing really but not as moisturizing as I would like. I just ordered Hada Labo Rohto Hadalabo Gokujun Hyaluronic Lotion because people seem to rave over at /r/AsianBeauty about it for hydration. It contains Hyaluronic Acid which is apparently really good for hydrating the skin.. you're supposed to put it on before you moisturize according to what I've read.

I also started using Cosrx Low PH Good Morning Gel as a cleanser.. just started this morning so too early to give a review on it but I purchased it because I read so much about it working well with dehydrated skin. I also have a new moisturizing coming in the mail.. Dr. Lin Skincare Daily Hydrating Gel which also contains Hyaluronic Acid but again can't give a review on this one quite yet.

The least you could do though is order the Sebamed moisturizer as there's a low chance it'll break you out further (and you definitely need to start moisturizing). The reason I say there's a low chance it'll break you out is because there's not really anything harmful in it as far as I can tell and it's completely devoid of alcohols which is why I purchased it initially.

Another esthetician here! I've noticed a huge improvement in my skin through double cleansing. I use Innisfree's Apple Juicy Cleansing Oil and Cosrx Low PH Good Morning Gel Cleanser.
The best part is while oil cleansing, you will actually feel all the nasty little gritty pieces of skin and dirt coming up, and after rinsing and your second cleanse, your skin just feels so nice. I wish I'd started this sooner, but better late than never!

Hello~ I've been stalking the Korean beauty industry for years, but have never committed due to random reasons. I want to try my hand at it next year (need to use up my stupidly expensive Sephora products). Here's a routine I created - mostly from Snow White & The Pear's reviews. For the record, I have eczema (thanks god, no flares right now) and sensitive (contact allergies), oily skin. I know. How can I have eczema and oily skin? OTL
