About the product

What Is It:

Your answer to troubled skin. Soothe irritated, sensitive, and acne-prone skin with COSRX Centella Blemish Ampule. Made with arguably one of the most buzzed about ingredients right now, Centella Asiatica, this ampoule normalizes sebum production and replenishes your moisture barrier with light healing hydration.

COSRX Centella Blemish Ampule doesn’t mess around with useless fillers, it’s a highly concentrated serum containing an impressive 85% Centella Asiatica Leaf Water. Centella Asiatica Leaf is colloquially known as Tiger Grass due to wounded tigers rubbing it against their battle scars to promote healing. Thanks to Centella Asiatica Leaf’s rich amino acids, beta carotene, fatty acids, and phytochemicals, this ampoule also offers incredible anti-aging benefits. Centella’s been shown to boost antioxidants, fight bacteria and inflammation (two contributors to acne), spur collagen production, and increase skin’s resilience. This ampoule also helps minimize breakouts by regulating oil production and maintaining the strength of the skin’s defenses against external stressors. So not only are you balancing and healing your skin, you’re keeping it fresh and younger looking, too!

COSRX Centella Blemish Ampule is good for all skin types, but sensitive and acne-prone skins will especially love the effects. COSRX Centella Blemish Ampule is full  antioxidants, which will help fight free radicals in the skin while its anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties reduce the look and reoccurrence of acne spots and irritation. With continued use your skin is left clearer, well regulated, more resilient, and just overall healthier than before!

Our insight:

COSRX Centella Blemish Ampule’s active ingredient isn’t just a buzzy fad, it has deep roots in traditional Korean hanbang skincare and has lots of scientific documentation to back up its healing claims. That’s why we think this ampoule is definitely worth a try!

How to use:

After cleansing and toning, smooth on a few drops on affected areas until thoroughly absorbed. Use morning and night. For best results, use with Centella Blemish Cream.
