About the product

What Is It:


Ready to enter the wonderful world of actives but want to go the gentlest all-natural route? COSRX AHA/BHA Clarifying Treatment Toner uses nature derived purifying botanicals such as Willow Bark Water and 10% Apple Fruit Water to mildly yet thoroughly exfoliate your skin!

COSRX AHA/BHA Clarifying Treatment Toner effectively sweeps away dead skin cells, clears away debris, and reduces the look of clogged enlarged pores all while maintaining an optimal pH level for your skin. As a result, your skin will not just look smoother, it will feel smoother too. You’ll notice a new silky softness that only AHA/BHA can deliver.

If you’re battling blackheads, bumps, and whiteheads, COSRX AHA/BHA Clarifying Treatment Toner will help you drastically minimize the look and length of your breakouts. With continued use COSRX AHA/BHA Clarifying Treatment Toner will help prevent those pesky problems from cropping up in the first place.

This fast absorbing, non-sticky toner is suitable for all skin types and works well under makeup, making it a suitable choice for day or night.


Our insight:


If you’re just starting out with skincare acids, we recommend using the toner once a week and building frequency as your skin’s barrier strengthens. The last thing you want to do is over-exfoliate your skin by using acids too frequently in your routine!

As with any chemical exfoliant, it’s important to keep a strict sun protection plan in place when using COSRX AHA/BHA Clarifying Treatment Toner, with touch-ups every two hours when spending the day in direct sunlight to avoid damaging precious, newly revealed skin.


How to use:


After cleansing, spray the toner onto a cotton pad and gently sweep across skin, avoiding the eye and lip area. For use day use, please follow with a broad-spectrum sunscreen rated SPF 30 or greater.


Ingredients:


Mineral Water, Salix Alba (Willow) Bark Water, Pyrus Malus (Apple) Fruit Water, Butylene Glycol, 1,2-Hexanediol, Sodium Lactate, Glycolic Acid, Betaine Salicylate, Allantoin, Panthenol, Ethyl Hexanediol

Great AHA/BHA product! It has been a great toner for my skin! I already realized less flaky patches on my chin area, and less oil on my nose area. I will definitely repurchase this item!
