When it comes to beauty care routine, everyone personalizes it as they see fit. And I think that's just great! Some may take their time with their routine, exfoliating, using creams and serums, face masks and pretty much everything out there while others are just using a hydration or SPF cream.
Personally, I was always into exfoliating, as I like the feeling of having a glowing, smooth skin. One of the products that I use for exfoliating and I really enjoy is the Cosrx AHA 7 Whitehead Power Liquid.
As the name says it, it’s not only a product that exfoliates your skin but it also controls whiteheads (I know, right?).So, here are some of the benefits that made me try the COSRX AHA 7 Whitehead Power Liquid:
- Controls sebum
- Exfoliates the skin
- Reduces excess of dead skin cells
- Diminishes whiteheads and blackheads
- It brightens the skin
- Repairs skin damage
Cosrx AHA 7 Whitehead Power Liquid Packaging
This product is packed in a transparent pump plastic bottle (a Cosrx classic, if I may). There’s nothing fancy about it but it does look interesting on my nightstand and I think that what matters is the product, not necessarily the packaging.
A thing I like about the Whitehead Power Liquid (which comes with most Cosrx products) is the dispenser. That's because you don’t come in contact with the product, so it’s a hygienic way to use it and I absolutely love that!
Cosrx AHA 7 Whitehead Power Liquid Ingredients
Pyrus malus (apple) fruit water, butylene glycol, glycolic acid, water, niacinamide, sodium hydroxide, 1,2-hexanediol, panthenol, sodium hyaluronate, xanthan gum, ethyl hexanediol.
A few tips on how to use the product, based on its ingredients:
- Don’t use too much product on whitehead areas
- At the beginning use once a week, and when your skin is adapted, use 2-3 times a week
- Do not use this product if you already exfoliated your skin on the same day (you'll get double exfoliation and nobody wants that)
- After using AHA 7 Whitehead Power Liquid hydrate your skin using a cream or serum.
How to use the Cosrx AHA 7 Whitehead Power Liquid
After cleansing your skin and using a toner, apply the AHA 7 Whitehead Power Liquid on the areas with whiteheads.
I personally use it before I go to sleep. Because it’s a concentrated formula, don’t apply too much as it may harm your skin. If your skin is very sensitive and you feel a little burn, it’s better to wash it with warm water after several minutes. After you spread the product, use a hydration cream.
AHA 7 Whitehead Power Liquid is a concentrated formula for deep cleansing, so your skin may be a little sensitive to UV rays the day after you use it. So, you should use sunscreen before going out.
My experience with the Cosrx Whitehead Power Liquid
I was already using Cosrx products like Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence, One Step Moisture Up Pad and Ultimate Nourishing Rice Overnight Spa Mask and I loved the results. I saw the AHA 7 Whitehead Power Liquid as a suggestion to my shopping basket one day and decided to give it a try.
I really liked the fact that the AHA 7 Whitehead Power Liquid contains Apple (Pyrus Malus) Fruit Water which is a natural acid derived from apples. This has amazing properties in reducing the appearance of fine lines, exfoliates dead skin cells and diminishes the appearance of large pores (just what I needed).
I decided to try it and now I can say that it is one of my favourite products for exfoliation, repairing skin damage and getting rid of those unfriendly whiteheads.
Before starting to use it, I checked all the recommendations as I knew that it has a concentrated formula so I followed the exact steps I've mentioned above, making sure that I protect my skin.
Even if my skin is not that sensitive, I wanted to give it time to adapt so I used AHA 7 Whitehead Power Liquid only 2 times the first 2 weeks. After that, I used it 2 times a week and it did the job perfectly.
After using AHA 7 Whitehead Power Liquid, I noticed in a short period of time an improvement in the aspect of my skin. The morning after using it my skin looks cleaner and brightened.
I also have to mention that foundation looks much better on my face now that I use this product. It reduced whiteheads and exfoliated dead skin cells and that combined made my skin feel softer as well.
I am using AHA 7 Whitehead Power Liquid for one month and a half now and I can say that my face looks better than before and I totally recommend it to anyone really (except to those of you who have very sensitive skin).
Cosrx Power Liquid texture and scent
AHA 7 Whitehead Power Liquid does not have a certain fragrance, so if you are not into scented skin care products, this one is for you.
The texture is a little viscous but it is easy to spread and it is not sticky.
Why I recommend the Cosrx Power Liquid
First of all, I like it because it reduces whiteheads and my skin is and feels smoother. Also, after using it for a few times, you can see a difference in how bright the skin looks - I love the fact that my skin looks fresher and cleaner.
Another reason for recommending it is that beauty products like foundation and concealer look better if your skin is exfoliated and without any big pores or whiteheads. AHA 7 Whitehead Power Liquid is one of the best products you can count on it if you have this type of skin problems.
This product also controls excessive sebum.
