Let’s test an innovative and multi-functional Korean skin care product. I’m talking about Cosrx One Step Moisture Up Pad. Here’s my review.
Cosrx One Step Moisture Up Pad is an innovative Korean product with multi-function use. The pads has two different sides to them. One smooth soft side and one rough for exfoliation and deep cleanse. Cosrx One Step Moisture Up Pads exfoliates the skin, cleanses and moisturizes the skin which becomes smooth and soft in one single step.
The packaging of Cosrx One Step Moisture Up Pad is absolutely wonderful! I don’t know what that guy is doing on the lid but very funny & charming indeed. Cosrx One Step Moisture Up Pad comes in a white plastic jar filled with 70 cotton-like pads soaked in moisturizing propolis extract from bees and hyaluronic acid. The pads have a soft side and a rough side to them. If you’re cheap, it’s possible to cut the pads in half to make them last twice as long. Very smart!
Cosrx One Step Moisture Up Pad is a Korean product that is quite hyped on social media. The product is fairly new on the market and was first launched in Korea about 1.5 years ago. I’ve been curious to testing these pads for some time. But my first question is.. What is it? Should I think of this products as a cleanser and toner or more a moisturizing essence or serum?
On the packaging it’s stated that the product should be applied immediately after cleansing. The pads have 2 different sides to them. Start with the patterned rough side and finish using the soft side of the pad. Wipe the pads over your skin after cleansing simply as you would use a regular toner! Some use Cosrx One Step Moisture Up Pad instead of double cleansing. That may work well if you use little or no makeup. I’m thinking of using Cosrx One Step Moisture Up Pad much like a toner immediately after double cleansing, but before using essence.
Cosrx One Step Moisture Up Pad effectively removes makeup, exfoliates the skin and hydrates the skin in one single step. The first time I used this product, I felt that it was too strong and “active” for my skin, much like some kind of acid. Don’t know if my thoughts was due to the fresh scent or the pads being so very soaked in product. But after using them a couple of times, I feel this product is absolutely mild & gentle to the skin. Cosrx One Step Moisture Up Pad creates a perfect fresh base for makeup in the morning. The main ingredient is soothing and anti-bacterial propolis that moisturizes and provides healthy radiance and glow. Cosrx One Step Moisture Up Pad also contains deeply hydrating hyaluronic acid.
The pads are quite thin and really soaked in lovely product. Very refreshing feeling on the skin. Mild fresh scent of skin care and maybe a slight hint of citrus? The skin feels cleansed, smooth and hydrated. Cosrx One Step Moisture Up Pad is a handy product to carry in the bag while traveling. The product both cleanses and moisturizes in one single step.
I might not use Cosrx One Step Moisture Up Pad instead double cleansing when I use makeup, that’s too expensive (only in case of emergency). I’ll use these pads as an exfoliating and moisturizing toner 2-3 times / week. I’ll use the pads in the evening as a toner after cleansing, or in the morning instead of cleansing. If you don’t use makeup or just a little makeup, then Cosrx One Step Moisture Up Pad can definitely work as cleanser and toner in one easy step. The product is mainly suitable for dry skin types and combination skin in my opinion. Also suitable for acne prone skin as Cosrx One Step Moisture Up Pad is naturally anti-septic treating blemishes and redness.
I like Cosrx One Step Moisture Up Pads a lot! Perfect as a fresh “pick me up” after a late night at the club. Or instead of cleansing when you’re lazy. Plus because the product is fast, simple and effective. Plus for the multiple uses in one single product. Cosrx One Step Moisture Up Pad is a handy products and easy to understand! The only negative is that the jar is quite expensive. Each pad costs just over 0.2 euros / pc. Overall, Cosrx One Step Moisture Up Pad is a very nice and handy product that works well. Awesome!
Cosrx One Step Moisture Up Pad is perfect as a fresh “pick me up” after a late night at the club. Wipe the skin with the pads for a refreshing start of the day!
