In our continuing series answering your most pressing questions (beauty or otherwise), Beautytap community member jacmakeup asks the K-Beauty Squad what some our favorite go-to skincare ingredients are.

About the product

What Is It:


COSRX Ultimate Moisturizing Honey Overnight Mask is your secret to sweet dreams. Sleep peacefully knowing this overnight mask is working hard to repair, protect, and moisturize your skin as you catch some Zzz’s!

COSRX Ultimate Moisturizing Honey Overnight Mask is made with a whooping 85% propolis extract, a powerful anti-inflammatory agent that’s also a well known anti-fungal and anti-acne ingredient thanks to its incredible antibacterial properties. Your skin will be treated to top notch skin-nutritious ingredients such as Allantoin and Honey, while Hyaluronic Acid and Cassia Obtusifolia Seed Extract seals in moisture with its high polysaccharides content.

COSRX Ultimate Moisturizing Honey Overnight Mask is good for all skin types but works special magic on red, angry, irritated skin. The soothing natural ingredients calms redness and inflammation, which is what makes it such a great choice for acne sufferers as well.


Our insight:


Propolis is a power ingredient loved by many in the K-beauty Squad. Read more about its skin-loving powers here.

If you’d like to keep the bouncy glow going, simply sweep toner over your skin in the morning when you wake up instead of washing away the excess in the morning. It’s perfectly OK! Follow up with the rest of your routine and get glowing!


How to use:


As the last step in your nighttime skincare routine, take a moderate amount and apply evenly to face. Let sit overnight as you sleep. In the morning splash off with warm water.
