About the product
What Is It:
Sigh. Acne. It’s possibly one of the worst things that can happen to your skin — the red bumps, the painful spots, the way it steals all of your confidence. But the COSRX AC Collection Blemish Spot Clearing Serum is ready to get your skin all the way together. It features COSRX’s patented Centella complex called CentellAC-RX made from three legendary skin-calming ingredients: Asiatic Acid, Asiaticoside, and Madecassic Acid. Together, this complex, along with 4% niacinamide, work together to target acne in three ways. First, it calms active, red spots. Then, it helps to reduce the amount of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (you know, those awful dark spots that remind us of our acne battle). And finally, using propolis extract and natural hydrating ingredients like ceramides and fatty acids, it repairs and strengthens your moisture barrier. How’s that for a triple threat?
Use this acne-fighting serum after cleansing, toning, and misting. Apply to the palms of your (clean) hands and gently press into the skin. To target specific spots, use a cotton swab.
How to use:
Apply 2-3 drops onto the face, avoiding the eye and mouth area. Evenly spread it on and pat into the skin for maxium absorption.
For troubled areas: soak a cotton pad in the serum and place it onto troubled areas for a deeper treatment.
