AHA and BHA products are the rage these days. Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) are acids that are great to rejuvenate dry or ageing skin. On the other hand, Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA) is used for oily, acne-prone skin and for treating blackheads and whiteheads. While searching for a good AHA/BHA toner, I came across the Cosrx brand. Cosrx is an affordable Korean brand that specialises in AHA/BHA products and vitamin C serums. The brand name is composed of COS for cosmetics and RX for a prescription. So let’s see how the Cosrx AHA/BHA Clarifying Treatment Toner fared for me.
Price: $17.00 for 5.29 oz
COSRX AHA/BHA Clarifying Treatment Toner is an exfoliating fluid that effectively eliminates flakes and dull skin cells while preventing blackheads and whiteheads from forming. Infused with natural acne-fighting acids, AHA/BHA Clarifying Treatment Toner controls excess oil and sebum while nourishing and hydrating depleted skin with essential vitamins.

My Experience with Cosrx AHA/BHA Clarifying Treatment Toner:
The Cosrx AHA/BHA Clarifying Treatment Toner is an exfoliating toner which prevents whiteheads, blackheads and blemishes and also balances the pH level of the skin to make it more hydrated. The exfoliating property of the toner keeps the flaking of dry skin at bay.
The toner comes in a white cardboard packaging. The toner comes in a clear cylindrical plastic bottle. The box contains very clear descriptions in English, which I really appreciate. The toner has a spray nozzle on top to dispense the product. The spray nozzle of this toner is really great.
You can use it as a mist and spray it all over your face and neck or you can take the required amount on a cotton pad and apply the toner to your face. I use this toner in the morning and evening by spraying the product on a cotton pad. I usually concentrate the toner on my T-zone, where my face tends to get oilier.
After applying the toner I use my serum or emulsion followed by a moisturizer. The toner is a clear liquid solution. It has a got a mild fruity scent which disappears immediately after application. The toner also gets absorbed fast into the skin and does not feel sticky. The toner works really well with my sensitive skin.
After using it for two months I feel my skin has smoothened a lot. It has also reduced my blemish marks. Also, the Cosrx AHA/BHA Clarifying Treatment Toner didn’t break me out. So overall, I am really happy with this product.
Pros of Cosrx AHA/BHA Clarifying Treatment Toner:
• Has smoothened my skin.
• Reduced my blemishes.
• Works really well with my Vitamin C serum and moisturizer.
• Didn’t break me out.
• Good, sturdy plastic bottle with an excellent spray nozzle.
• Travel-friendly packaging.
Cons of Cosrx AHA/BHA Clarifying Treatment Toner:
• Not easily available in India.
