About the product

What Is It:

COSRX Centella Blemish Cream is one of the most gentle and effective ways to heal scabs, scars, hyper-pigmentation, and active breakouts in acneic skin. Treat your troubled skin to this velvety smooth healing balm and you’ll reveal a calmer, brighter, more radiant complexion!

Instead of formulating this product with regular water like most products on the market, COSRX ensures maximum effectiveness by using Centella Asiatica Leaf Water as its base. Not content with just leaving it at that, COSRX has also added Centella extract to further calm and soothe inflamed angry skin. The beefed-up Centella presence also works to heal and reduce the appearance of recent scarring, alleviate sensitivity, and leave your skin protected from internal and external stressors.

Centella has been used in Asia since antiquity for its healing and anti-inflammatory properties, it is a very well-documented, scientifically proven method to fight inflammation and promote healing within the skin.

COSRX also turns its attention to your skin’s first defense against acne and infection, your moisture barrier. COSRX Centella Blemish Cream hydrates skin, fortifying its moisture barrier all while relieving skin’s reactivity. Its dense balm-like texture has velvety finish without any hint of sticky oiliness.

Simple and effective, this is a multitasking product. Not only does it treat active acne but it also helps reduce the appearance of post inflammatory pigmentation which lingers well after the breakout.


I have acne issues. This is one product that you can use as your daily regimen to fight off blemishes and acne.


i always especially recommend this brand to anybody that’s starting off in the k-skincare, that needs a nightly/morning routine that’s easy for them to be designed, quick on time management and again, won’t cost a fortune. it’s ideal for the youth and nature because it’s highly detailed in nature medication, containing high ingredients like aloe Vera, centella, no fragrance parabens, alcohol, etc. it’s truly wonderful, and i can’t think of a better brand to explore in Korean skincare than Cosrx. this product is amazing.


I deal with acne quite a lot. One reason for the is because anytime I use a acne treatment it dries out my skin, causes more irritation- which causes more breakouts. However, I think I just found my Holy Grail product ! I can’t believe how hydrating it is for a blemish cream😱


The only problem with this cream is that it's thick and gives a bit of a white cast. But as you keep rubbing it in, it becomes a great moisturizer. This calms my redness in my cheeks very quickly. It's not sticky, which I appreciate. Also, a LITTLE goes a long way! The thickness of the cream works great with the cold weather!


I agree with the white cast. I use it as a spot treatment on my blemishes at night. I just pat on a thick layer on my blemishes and it really helps calm them overnight. I like that there's no alcohol, unlike other thick pink spot treatments.
