Like it! Like it! Like it! – COSRX Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser review

All the thoughts and opinions in my posts are my own at the moment. The posts and reviews aren’t sponsored yet and the links I share aren’t affiliate links yet. For the case IF I’ll mark the sponsored/affiliate content.


I had always trouble to find a really good cleanser till I started to use korean cosmetics. All the gel cleansers I could found in the drugstore were good enough to trash them. Redness, dandruff, dry and tight skin were the results after using them. A foam cleanser I found finally, rescued my skin for many years, but I wasn’t satisfied with it. Thogh it was gentle, its cleaning qualities were simply bad.

So I was very glad about korean cleansers. They are really delicate and gentle to your skin with very good cleansing qualities. It is my third korean cleanser and I really love it.

About company

The company Cosrx was founded in 2014 and specializes in producing cosmetics for impure skin. The company’s philosophy: “Leave out all the stuff that isn’t necessary”. On the other hand the products should include more natural components. Moreover, Cosrx’s aim is to produce cosmetics friendly to skin and effective at the same time. The brand is cruelty-free, but not 100% vegan (there are products with snail mucin and propolis for example).

Who is more interested in how Cosrx define itself and what it does, read this interview:

The Promise

The cleanser is defined as a low-pH gel which is very skin friendly and gentle. The pH value of it is 5,0 – 6,0 pH. A healthy skin has its level by 5.5 pH. So, it means that the cleanser comes near to the optimal level of skin pH. I don’t want to explain more about pH in this post, it’ll be too much.

“Skin pH is a scale that shows the acidic-alkaline condition of our skin.”

The tasks of the cleanser:

– to clean mild and without causing any irritation to the skin,

– to soothe, refresh and soften the skin

– exfoliate the skin,

– and finally desinfect,

– minimize pores

– reduce blackheads

How it worked on my skin

Did it fulfill its tasks? I can honestly say – YES! It did!

Foams very well. Cleans mild. No irritation. No allergic reaction. Soft, soothed and refreshed skin after washing.

From the first wash I saw the exfoliating power of the acids. The skin is very smooth, looks like after a good and mild peeling.  The skin is refined, pores are cleaned and minimized, redness and blackheads reduced. My skin feels very clean and can breath.

This cleanser is a love at first sight! I’ll definitely buy it again.
