A nice non drying gel cleanser. Perfect for the shower or a second cleanse in a double cleansing routine. I thought it would be drying, due to the tea tree oil smell, but no, and non irritating.
And the fact is that It is the ph of your skin, it makes it work better.
I still wouldn’t recommend for the driest of skins, but  a normal to dry it would be fine.

So I purchased the full size portion because I loved the sample so much. I have been using it morning and evening. I love it. I often change products from time to time, but I am going to stick with this for awhile. With the maskne being so relevant at this time (feel like a teenager) this seems to be helping me feel clean and refreshed. It has a very clean scent, low pH level very purifying and soothing and does not strip the skin barrier. I would say that if your... Read more

Oh my gosh I just sampled this and absolutely love it. My skin is primarly combination depending on the season and also with mask wearing these days. I love that you just need a very little bit and it foams up nicely making your skin feeling clean and refreshed. I love using it in the morning and evening. This is a definite keeper for me in my skincare arsenal. Highly recommend for all skin types.

My skin type is oily/acne prone. Before I recently discovered COSRX, I shopped around for years looking for my perfect cleanser and was never truly satisfied with the Neutrogena I was using. I sampled this cleanser after being accepted as a BA, and instantly found the fresh feeling I was looking for. My skin feels clean and my pores look smaller. This is my go-to cleanser during digital consultations.

After having my baby I notice my skin was really starting to reacting with all my hormones and what not, it was more oily than I remember and started to breakout and I got the COSRX. Good Morning Gel Cleanser and I love how my skin feels definitely is helping me with my pH balance

This is a simple and gentle cleanser- but my preference would be a lighter tea tree oil scent. Foaming cleansers are my favorite to use on my face, so I’ve been using this in the shower as a body wash and it’s very invigorating!

What I love about COSRX products is the fact that they are made from simple, quality ingredients and all of the products are relatively inexpensive. This is a very good cleanser for younger, acne-prone skin as it cleans pores without leaving an oily residue.

The first time i tried this i was amazed. As an oily skin gal i know that some cleansers might leave your face feeling like a desert or others too oily but this is the perfect middle ground. You can feel it really cleansing the skin but gentle enough so won’t strip your skin and it smells like tea tree oil which I loved.
