Cosrx Hyaluronic Acid Hydra Power Essence is one of the various essences made by Korean beauty company Cosrx.  This is one of their heaviest, most hydrating essences.  It has a thicker texture than the Galactomyces 95 Whitening Power Essence, which is quite watery (Full review HERE).  This is more of a very thin gel.  I found 3 pumps to be…

Cosrx BHA Blackhead Power Liquid Review

I’m fairly new to Korean beauty products, but the Cosrx BHA Blackhead Power Liquid has got to be one of the best ones available.  It’s effective, it’s quite gentle, it’s really well formulated, and it isn’t drying or irritating.  Seriously, ladies prone to acne, blackheads, or whiteheads, listen up: you need this.  You really, really need this.  Technically, it’s an…
