Cosrx AHA BHA toner, Centella Blemish cream, Advanced Snail 92 All in one cream essence, review, pareri

Taking care of your skin? Not an easy task when it's this friggin' cold outside. I mean, some days is okay, i actually welcome the crisp breeze. But sometimes, i wish i could pull of a glam eskimo look, where you can only see the tip of my nose peeking through all those layers of clothes. I'm good with cold. What i'm not good is turning into an ice cube. 🌬

If you've been following me for a while now, you know I'm a die hard fan of korean skincare. It just works for me, for my skin type. And I've been using these three products since August, to see how well they work together, separate and with short pauses between uses. And let me tell you, the hype around Cosrx is real. They're constantly mentioned in western and asian beauty community, because they actually offer visible results in a short amount of time.

I picked three products to try out from Glamour Flare and i choose them with reason. Well, i tried to cover all the basic needs of a skincare routine, without using many products. 'Cuz let's face it girls, we don't really enjoy stacking a horde of products on our faces. We want few products that perform well for our skin needs and acceptable prices. So that's what i tried to do here.

I also love that they have free delivery in UK for orders over £40 and free international delivery with orders over £60. See the bottom of this article 'cuz i have some wonderful news and discount codes as well.
*****
Like i said, few products, basic needs (gentle exfoliation, spot treatment, improvement of overall skin appearance), immediate results.

Cosrx AHA/BHA Clarifying Treatment Toner
I'm using this toner every single morning and night, right before i go too sleep. It's really gentle with the skin, even one as pretentious and sensitive as mine is. I think this is the best thing about it. You know how you have to be really careful when introducing a AHA and/or BHA product because it tends to really dry out your skin. So you use it once a day or even 3-4 times a week. That is how much they tend to dry out your face. But i didn't experience that with this toner, which is why i'm using it twice a day. Yes, sometimes i forget or i'm too tired/lazy, so i skip this step entirely. But the next day, i make sure to keep up my routine. The same as the snail cream down below, if you do stop to use the products for a long period of time, you will see the damage. So always try to keep up your skin routine, no matter how tired you are.

Ingredients:
Water, Salix Alba (Willow) Bark Water, Pyrus Malus (Apple) Fruit Water, Butylene Glycol, 1,2-Hexanediol, Sodium Lactate, Glycolic Acid, Betaine Salicylate, Allantoin, Panthenol, Ethyl Hexanediol.

Cosrx Centella Blemish Cream
Why oh why, haven't i tried this cream until now? Why? I'll tell you why: there are so many hyped products out there, you don't even know which products are good and which are a waste of time, money and resources. So when you discover something that works wonders on your skin, you do get a little frustrated. Like, where have you been this whole time? I see you, i just didn't believe in the hype. And that was my mistake.

For me, this cream is like a treatment. Even the texture reminds me of those prescribed creams that you go buy at the pharmacy. That's how i feel, that this Centella Blemish Cream is a prescribed treatment for everyone that still struggles with breakouts, irritation, acne scars and red spots.
I only apply it on the area that needs attention, like a pimple that is just starting to form, or a red spot that needs healing, or large pores. It improves that area and calms down the irritation.
I really hope they never discontinue this cream. Or change the formula. Like ever!

Ingredients:
Centella Asiatica Leaf Water, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Zinc Oxide, Dimethicone, Betaine, 1, 2-Hexanediol, Viola Tricolor Extract, Elaeis Guineensis Oil, Elaeis Guineensis Kernel Oil, Cetearyl Alcohol, Cetearyl Olivate, Sorbitan Olivate, Centella Asiatica Extract, Zinc PCA, Xanthan Gum, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil, Scutellaria Baicalensis Root Extract.

Then i pop some Cosrx Advanced Snail 92 All in one cream which, as the title suggests, has 92% snail secretion filtrate. And before you ask, no, no snails are harmed during the... collecting process? 'Cuz yeah, i did some digging.
I know everyone is head over heels for the Power Essence with 96% snail secretion, which is amazing btw. I tried that essence for years, but the cream works as fine as the essence. I really don't see any difference between them.
However, i feel like i should say this because i've seen people using this cream as a moisturizer and they're complaining about some things.
This snail cream wasn't designed to fill in the spot of your hydrating cream. If you're an oily or combination skin type, then you will get away with skipping that extra step of adding a moisturizer. It's hydrating enough.
However, if you know you have dry or super-dry skin, you will need a hydrating cream on top of this snail one. I always say to really do some research before you buy something. See what that product is promising you before you buy it, look at the ingredient list, check other sites like Cosdna for extra info on the ingredients. Do not complain that your product doesn't offer ...let's say a mattifying effect if it promised you a deep hydrating effect.
Learn what your skin needs when the season changes, then buy something that will work for you.
I just feel that everyone is exaggerating so much for the sake of views these days and this is messing with the readers/viewers perception of what's good and what is not.

This Cosrx all in one cream will help with the texture of your skin, pores, uneven pigmentation, calms down your irritated skin and basically, helps with your overall face appearance. More awake and luminous. And you'll see results in a couple of days too. I didn't use this cream for a couple of weeks to see how my skin will react and nope, i won't do that anytime soon.
Also, this cream will last you for a looooong time. A little goes a long way with this one

Ingredients:
Snail Secretion Filtrate, Betaine, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Cetearyl Olivate, Sorbitan Olivate, Cetearyl Alcohol, Carbomer, Arginine, Dimethicone, Sodium Polyacrylate, Phenoxyethanol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Stearic acid, Allantoin, Panthenol, Xanthan Gum, Ethyl Hexanediol, Adenosine.

I've only tried 6 products from Cosrx in my life and i loved all of them. Good prices, even better quality. I don't think i'll ever stop promoting korean skincare, it has never disappointed me.
Glamour Flare even gave me a code for you guys (not affiliated, i don't make a commission when you purchase something). It's just a code for my lovely readers: WHATEVEREVAWANTS for -20% off. 
It can only be used once per customer.

At the moment, they have a brilliant offer on their site:
- buy one product, get one 50% off with code BUY1G1HP (add 2 products in the basket for your discount to apply)
- buy 3 products, get one free with code BUY3GET1FREE  (add 4 products in the basket)
That's an awesome offer, considering that they already have good prices for all the products. Who can say no to a bargain?

So, have you used any Korean skincare products by now? If yes, what's your absolute favorite? What worked for you and what didn't?
