COSRX BHA Blackhead Power nguồn Liquid


COSRX BHA Blackhead Power nguồn Liquid.

First, let me give you some context for just how much I love sầu this hàng hóa.

Before I discovered it, I'd been a die-hard Lotion P50 user for ages.

In fact, I was so devoted khổng lồ Lotion P50 that I didn't even want lớn TRY the COSRX BHA Blackhead Power nguồn Liquid. I only did for the sake of this blog, figuring I'd demo it out for a few days và then go baông xã lớn my regular P50 routine as soon as possible.

What happened next totally surprised me. I started getting such incredible results (more on those in a minute) that I had khổng lồ keep going with it. Almost two years và three bottles later, & I haven't stopped!

Now I can honestly say that I think COSRX BHA Blackhead Power nguồn Liquid is BETTER than Lotion P50. (Gasp!)

What makes it so unique?

It's a gentle, leave-on exfoliant. It uses beta-hydroxy acids (which are more powerful than alpha-hydroxy acids lượt thích glycolic acid & lactic acid). And it's in a moisturizing, silicone-không tính tiền gel base. There's nothing else quite like it on the market!

So, let's dive into some of the specific benefits. Here's why I'm so impressed with this sản phẩm...

Not a Spot Treatment

Most BHA and salicylic acid products are spot treatments, for applying lớn individual pimples as they happen.

COSRX BHA Blackhead Power nguồn Liquid is one of the only ones that is meant to lớn be used ALL OVER your face (excluding the eye area, obviously). 

In fact, using it on a regular basis—ideally daily—as a full-face treatment is far more effective against acne, because it helps prsự kiện clogged pores from even forming in the first place! 

Targets Acne and Blackheads 

The reason COSRX BHA Blackhead Power Liquid works so well against acne is because, as a BHA, it is oil-soluble & penetrates deeply, through sebum. This is different from AHAs (alpha-hydroxy acids), which are only water-soluble & remain on the skin surface.

So once the BHA reaches your pores, it gives your skin a deep-clean by exfoliating the pore lining and loosening clogged sebum. This process allows oil khổng lồ flow out more easily (instead of becoming trapped), and softens blackheads, making them easier khổng lồ extract. BHAs are also mildly antibacterial.

If you vì get a pimple, COSRX BHA Blackhead nguồn Liquid will help it clear quickly. I've also found it great for those lingering, under-the-skin, non-inflamed type of comedones. You just need khổng lồ give sầu it a month or so to lớn see the full effect!

Reduces Oil and Minimizes Pores

When used on a continuous basis, COSRX BHA Blackhead nguồn Liquid can also help reduce your oil production. This is because, like all BHAs, it has a slightly drying, oil-absorbing action in the pores. 

Because it's keeping your pores so clean và miễn phí of oil, it also helps them lớn look smaller. (While you can't technically "change" the kích thước of your pores, they can definitely stretch và look bigger when they are filled with oil & debris.)

Exfoliating, Brightening, Softening and Smoothing 

What you might not know about BHAs is that they deliver the same exfoliating & brightening benefits as AHAs. So COSRX BHA Blackhead Power Liquid has the exact surface action as any other acid exfoliant, dissolving dead skin and giving you a glow. 

I've sầu actually noticed it makes my skin texture much smoother và softer than other acids, including Lotion P50!

Fights Aging and Fades Pigmentation 

BHAs like COSRX BHA Blackhead nguồn Liquid are also anti-aging. As per this study, they can be used lớn treat fine lines. This study found skin became more flexible and resistant to wrinkling & cracking.

Of course, removing dead skin cells also helps fade age spots and pigmentation. Plus, BHAs have sầu some ability khổng lồ inhibit melanin formation, according to lớn this study.

Bonus: COSRX BHA Blackhead nguồn Liquid also contains niacinamide, another amazing ingredient for evening out skin tone!

Gentle, Anti-Inflammatory & Non-Irritating

Compared to lớn other BHAs (The Ordinary and Paula's Choice, I'm looking at you), COSRX BHA Blackhead Power Liquid is quite gentle. I don't find it anywhere near as drying! I also love that the formulation includes hyaluronic acid and vitamin B5, to lớn help skin hold onkhổng lồ water. 

The other great thing about BHAs & salicylic acid is that, as part of the aspirin family, they are anti-inflammatory by nature. They're also much less irritating than AHAs, due lớn their larger molecule sizes. 

Safe with Sun Exposure

Rest assured that you can apply COSRX BHA Blackhead Power nguồn Liquid year-round, day or night. While I'd recommover using sunscreen regardless, BHAs và salicylic acid won't increase sun-sensitivity, and actually have sầu some photoprotective sầu properties.
