These pore refining pads help to gently exfoliate and keep skin clear. I love that they are gentle and hydrating for my combination skin!


my tween age daughter has been using these, and her skin has cleared up immensly. They are gentle on the skin as it contains willowbark to calm the skin down and the salicylic acid to help treat the break out.


Added to my cart because the ingredients sound great and for the price i think its worth a shot ! I'm excited to try these bad boys out and give a review on how they worked for me !!


I have seriously been looking for a reason to get these. I think/hope they will be perfect for time crunched days especially for my daughter. This and the moisture pads are are 2 of the products out of only a few that I do not already have from Cosrx. And now a sale! Looks like a good enough reason for me!! Add to cart.....


If you have acne prone skin this will be the best thing to get. You’ll be satisfied with the results!


I thought these weren't me since I dont have acne issues much anymore BUT Jimini of Cosrx recommended I try them anyways and said they were great....i kinda assumed they might be like those old Noxema pimple pads from the 90s....nope, they're totally fabulous even for my dry skin! I use them after oil cleansing to clean out pores further and to get any last bit of makeup off my face....they dont dry out my skin at all and I actually would say this is one of my 2 fave cosrx products of all time.


I thought this product was just okay. It was definitely gentle enough for everyday use (I used it as a toner) but I'm not sure it really did anything for my skin. I still broke out while using it and I didn't like the somewhat sticky residue that it left on my skin. The packaging is definitely convenient and you don't need to use a separate cotton pad, so these might be nice for travel.


I have sensitive skin so I get worried about trying out new products to keep acne at bay but these pads work great! They don't irritate my skin and are convenient to use


I'm on my 4th tub of this now, I use them most days as light exfoliation and my skin loves them! ♡ Definitely a must in my routine


These have worked great for me as light exfoliation and hydrating/toning step in the mornings! I don't find that they are too heavy or make my skin greasy at all but I can definitely tell that they're helping smooth out any dry patches and keeping my pores clear. Amazing product!


I generally like these pads. They are great as a quick cleanser before applying make-up or going out in the middle of the day when you have already gone through your routine etc. I started using them after most of my pimples had disappeared so I can't exactly say how effective they are for that, but they did not break me out at least. They are really effective in terms of getting rid of dirt, oil residue and dry flakes. There is a smell though, it is not entirely unpleasant, but it does stick around for half an hour or...

EDIT: I did not use them as a cleanser. It was badly worded. I used them to get rid of dry flakes or dead skin to smoothen out my skin before make-up on a particularly bad day or as replacement for my usual exfoliator if I need to exfoliate quickly.
