I placed an order on YesStyle last year, and I’ve been really impressed with what I’ve tried. I ordered the COSRX Pimple Patches, but due to my adhesive allergy I’ve not been able to use them without getting a reaction. I was kindly offered the chance to try some other COSRX products, and I chose the COSRX One Step Original Clear Pads are one of the products I’ve been trying from the brand.
COSRX One Step Original Clear Pads
I love using exfoliating pads within my skincare routine, and have done ever since I discovered the Nip and Fab Glycolic Fix Cleansing Pads. I just love how simple and easy they are to use, and they work wonders on treating any uneven texture or dry patches. The COSRX One Step Original Clear Pads are £24.99 from Feelunique however they contain 70 pads which is a huge amount. Usually brands give you 30-50 pads maximum, so to get 70 in a pot that’s a really generous amount and if you use one a day, that’s almost two months’ worth of product breaking it down to around £12.50 per month.
What are the COSRX One Step Original Clear Pads?
“These award-winning COSRX One Step Original Clear Pads (previously known as COSRX One Step Pimple Clear Pads) are pre-soaked in Betaine Salicylate, a natural BHA ingredient, and Willow Bark Water that exfoliate without drying out or sensitising the skin. These pads completely remove the excess sebum, polish away old dead skin cells that cause acne and remove makeup wastes.
Using these pads will help brighten skin tone and purify the skin without irritation and will help reduce the number of pimples and control skin breakouts. Exfoliation, sebum control & hydrating all at once, it is the ultimate all-in-one pad for all! It can also be used for blemishes on the chest and back.“
– Salix Alba (Willow) Bark Water: clearing pores & get better skin texture
– Betaine Salicylate (BHA): remove dead skin cells & clear clogged pores
To use the COSRX One Step Original Clear Pads, you gently wipe cleansed skin with the embossed side, and then remove excess dirt with the smoother side, and pat in any excess toner for better absorption. The pads can even be used as a facial mask, COSRX recommend placing the pads on your cheeks for 5-7 minutes to help restore the skin’s balance, and help cool down the skin’s temperature.
1. Use COSRX One Step Original Clear Pad as facial masks. Place the pads on your cheeks 5-7 minutes to restore skin balance and cool down skin temperature.
2. Before touch up, wipe out dirt and flaky part of your skin with a pad. Let the toner sink into you skin. Then, proceed with touch up.
As you get 70 of the COSRX One Step Original Clear Pads, the plastic jar is pretty huge and the pads are all super saturated with toner. The toner has a very strong scent, which to me smells like tea tree oil and the scent lingers for around ten minutes after using the pad. It’s not a pleasant scent in all honesty, but it’s something I can overlook as I enjoy the benefits so much. They work wonders on my dry patches, in fact I’d even go as far to say that they’re most effective exfoliating toner pads I’ve ever tried.
They’ve improved my dry patches, which has resulted in my foundation looking better which is no mean feat during the winter as my skin always looks so dry and textured when it’s so cold outside. I can totally understand why the COSRX One Step Original Clear Pads have won an award, and they’re definitely worth the hype. I would repurchase them once I’ve finished, and that’s always when I know I’m wowed by a product as I’m always testing so many skincare products, but for me, the COSRX One Step Original Clear Pads are fantastic and I highly recommend them.
