Strong, but calms redness and speeds up healing time

I have been using this Calming Liquid Intensive with my other products of COSRX, like the Snail Line and ABC Line. I use this usually once a day after cleansing and using Centella water. I come from using products in the past with high percentages of acids, but I wanted to try Korean products that were not quite as harsh. This Acne liquid, works great. I notice a reduction in redness quickly, and any breakouts I do get, this helps dry them up and speed up the healing time. I tend to get most of my breakouts in the Summer, on my forehead area, here with the TX heat. But this AC liquid has reduced the intensity of breakouts, as well as the healing time. I use this with the AC foaming cleanser, The centella water, or AHA Water, Then this calming liquid, which I rotate between this and the Whitehead or Blackhead liquid to give me more exfoliation. Again I come from using strong acid products, chemical peels etc, so my skin is used to exfoliation. Then I use the Snail Essence, once that dries in, the AC or ABC Serum, and then the AC moisturizer or snail healing cream if needed.

This protocol has seemed to work best for me, rotating certain products so my skin does not develop resistance to them.

So after using a strong skincare line for over 10 years, I am happy with transitioning over to COSRX and Korean Skin Care.

I have constant acne in the same place! Been using for around 2 weeks and it's already calming down!


I use this after cleansing and recently I have been using this liquid as a toner mask for my cheeks. I use whatever is leftover on the pad to apply on the neck and back. I do get occasional back acne, so I am testing it out for that aspect. Overall, I think my face does not agree with this toner because it is more sensitive compared to my body. I like using this for my body/back. It soothes my skin without stinging. There is no alcohol in this, which I appreciate!


Was worried about rumors that the A Sol liquid was being discontinued, so I have spent the last few weeks trying this out as a replacement/upgrade. It feels a little bit more slippery in consistency but still very watery, and it works just as well. Will definitely repurchase! Also want to try the mild version as well.
