Do we have It’s Okay to Not Be Okay fans here? How about My Love from the Star? If you are one, then I’m sure you’ll gain another reason to add Korean cult-favorite skincare brand COSRX to your carts this week! K-drama star Kim Soo-hyun’s photo cards are now being given away for FREE with every purchase of select COSRX products on their Shopee page. Everyone is entitled to get one until supplies last without minimum spend, too!
I personally swear by COSRX since they have really effective AHA and BHA products which suit different skin types, so getting a Kim Soo-hyun photo card as a freebie is a win-win situation for K-drama fans. For those who are not yet familiar with their products, here are samples that I can recommend:
Price: Php 237 (originally Php 300)
Every 50mL cleanser is good enough for a month and it’s effective in cleansing sebum without drying out your skin. It has BHA (Betaine Salicylate) – one of my favorite exfoliating ingredients which help remove blackheads and whiteheads. Even though it’s good as a standalone cleanser, COSRX still recommends this to be used as a second cleanser after removing makeup with a first cleanser (e.g. cleansing oil, cleansing water). As part of their Brand Day special deal, every purchase now comes with a random Kim Soo-hyun photo card (5 designs to be given out randomly) until supplies last.
Price: Php 1,050
Snail essence is a very promising ingredient when it comes to skin elasticity and moisture. After cleansing and toning, this power essence can be applied onto the face using a clean cotton pad or clean fingertips. This can help reduce skin redness, nourish sensitive skin, and repair the skin for a healthier glow. Every purchase also comes with a photo card until supplies last.
Price: Php 1,350
CentellAC-RX formula, a Centella complex made by COSRX, is being used in every bottle of this product to help address acne-related concerns such as excessive sebum and unnatural pH levels. Even though it heavily targets red spots, blemishes, acne marks, and dark spots, this product feels super light and it gets absorbed by the skin easily without an icky feeling.
Price: Php 850
My favorite product! This is the first ever COSRX product that I’ve tried and it works wonders in soothing, refreshing, and softening the skin while keeping its optimal pH level. I apply this with a cotton pad before going to bed (after cleansing my face), and I always wake up with my skin feeling plump and moisturized. It even takes pride in its mineral water sourced from Jeju Island!
Worth trying if you haven’t yet! It may be a bit pricey but it’s worth its price in my opinion. Checking out the products using Shopee vouchers and free shipping can help make it more affordable! The app can be downloaded for free via App Store or Google Play. Stocks are also quite limited so make sure to grab your faves soon (as long as you have your essentials at home already, we still need to prioritize our needs).
