COSRX is a famous Korean beauty brand which uses only natural ingredients for their products.
That was the first thing that made me try COSRX products. This brand does not focus on the appearance of the product, on packaging, but on the ingredients they use, and that is enough for me (even if, I have to admit, I kind of love their clean and neat packaging!).
I had always faced problems with acne and I searched a natural product that could help me solve them. I found out about Cosrx Natural BHA Skin Returning A-Sol Essence by reading online about COSRX products and I decided to go for it because I needed a new product (my old one was finished and honestly, the results were not the best) and not because I knew that it will suit me.
Long story short, I've tried many products and decided to give the BHA Skin Returning A-Sol Essence a try too! So I gave it a try because I had nothing to lose - and it was one of the best choices I made for my skin.
The Cosrx Natural BHA Skin Returning A-Sol Essence claims to:
- Take care of troubled skin
- Reduce big pores
- Prevent breakouts
- Reduce sebum and clear impurities
Sounded like just what I needed!

My experience with the Natural BHA Skin Returning A-Sol Essence
I have recently added Cosrx Natural BHA Skin Returning A-Sol Essence to my care routine and I can sincerely say that it was a real help in the process (and struggle) of having a clear skin.
I have to mention that if you want to get the best results, you have to be patient and follow the recommendations above. You have to use it once a week for a few weeks so your skin gets used to the formula and adapt to it. After that, you can increase the usage up to 3 times a week.
I followed these instructions and I have seen results quite fast. I have an oily skin and that makes pimples appear on and on and sometimes it feels like they never get tired of making their way on my face. Even if I used a lot of products to prevent the appearance of pimples, my face was just adapting to them and they didn’t give results in the long run.
I have used the Cosrx Natural BHA Skin Returning A-Sol Essence for almost 4 months now and saw amazing results. I use it 3 times a week because of my oily skin and it really prevents my breakouts.
Cosrx Natural BHA Skin Returning A-Sol Essence has amazing results in healing troubled skin. Even if you have an acne-prone skin, blackheads, whiteheads or big pores, Cosrx Natural BHA Skin Returning A-Sol Essence can heal it and give your skin a glowing look.
Cosrx Natural BHA Skin Returning A-Sol Essence - texture and scent
The product has no artificial fragrances, but it can have a little scent from its ingredients.
The texture has viscous consistency, very similar to water. It is easily absorbed by the skin and doesn’t leave any sticky marks.
Why do I recommend it?
There are lots of reasons but I will start with the most important one for me. Cosrx Natural BHA Skin Returning A-Sol Essence is now my ally in the battle with acne. It helped me right after the first week.
It gives my skin a matte aspect, so my 'oily look' is now under control. Another benefit of this product is that not only heals acne but prevent any breakouts. By using it for a long period of time and with a little patience, your skin will look clear and brightened.
