Ceramides 101: The Unassuming, Must-Have Skincare Ingredient for Healthy Skin

Peptides, EGF, stem cells — all the sexy, science-y sounding ingredients that everyone is drawn to for anti-aging.

About the product

What Is It:


Creamy dreamy honey heaven! COSRX Honey Ceramide Full Moisture Cream has everything skin needs in one simple nutritious treat!

This fuss-free formula contains the two weapons you want on your side when it comes to fighting dullness and dehydration: honey and ceramides. Honey extract, the liquid form of wild honey, makes up the first ingredient in this heavenly cream. That means you’ll receive the full benefit of nature’s bounty with each application. What’s so great about that? Honey extract is well known for its scientifically proven ability to soothe the skin as well as its nutrient rich vitamin content and high antioxidant levels. Think of it as a superfood for your face!

Ceramides, the other star ingredient in this potent potion, replenish the natural lipid loss that occurs within your skin, whether it be from environmental factors, stripping treatments, or just plain old aging. Whatever the cause of your moisture lacking woes, COSRX Honey Ceramide Full Moisture Cream is here to save the day!

Thanks to its minimal ingredients and lack of bulked up fillers, COSRX Honey Ceramide Full Moisture Cream is particularly wonderful for sensitive and acne-prone skin types but is totally beneficial to just about any skin type. Oilier skin will especially appreciate the way COSRX Honey Ceramide Full Moisture Cream’s lightweight texture leaves the skin with a smooth matte but never dull finish!


Our insight:


Thanks to its quick absorption and non-greasy feel, this cream is great for priming the skin before makeup application!


How to use:


After cleansing, toning and using treatment products, dispense the cream into the palm of the hand. Smooth or pat over skin, until fully absorbed. Follow with SPF during the day or use it as your last skincare step at night.
