COSRX One Step Pimple Clear Kit is a kit containing samples of three different products by the same brand. It contains a gel cleanser, a pimple clear pad and a Holy Moly Snail mask. The three products clean the skin and eliminate pimple producing condition. I have been suffering from acne forever and have been treating it with the help of a dermatologist. However, I have had a terrible breakout and my Dermat is currently on vacation so I thought let’s try some other ways to fix my skin condition. Clara from Beautifullyme.in had praised this kit in her review so I thought why not give it a try. I bought this kit from Daisy Skin Fix and along with the kit they also sent me a blackhead removal strip for free.
Thank You, Daisy Skin Fix for the free sample 🙂 So, I used this kit last week and here is my experience with this kit.
Name: COSRX One Step Pimple Clear Kit
Price: ₹295/- for 1 kit
What does it claim?
The gel cleanser is formulated at low pH to maintain the skin’s optimal pH level. It soothes, refreshes and softens the skin. The pimple clear pad contains 1% betaine salicylate and 80% white low bark water which gently exfoliates the skin and clears it of dirt and excess oil. The snail mucin face mask moisturizes and nourishes the skin.
How to use?
First, wash your face with the gel cleanser. Then wipe your face with the embossed side of the clear pad and then flip the pad to smooth out your skin. Lastly, place the sheet mask on the face and leave it on for around 15-20 minutes before taking it off. Gently pat your skin for better absorption.
Does it fulfil its claim?
I first tore the gel cleanser along the perforated lines and separated it from the packet. The gel is clear and has a faint unpleasant smell. I washed my face with regular water and noticed that my skin felt soft and looked clean. I wiped my face with a towel and then used the pimple clear pad. As indicated, I wiped my face with the embossed side and then went over it with the flat side. The pad helped to clear out any trace of dirt and oil on my face. I waited for the solution to dry and then placed the sheet mask on my face. This mask was the tiniest mask I had ever used. Even the eye hole was the tiniest I had ever seen. I could feel a stinging sensation for as long as the mask was on my face. Also, the serum was of runny consistency and it leaked onto my neck. I left it on for around 30 minutes before peeling it off. I am not exaggerating but when I took off the mask, I could feel the a huge pimple on my forehead shrink in size. I then patted the leftover serum on my face and neck before going to bed. The next morning, I noticed that a few pimples had reduced in size and the redness had also subsided. However, it had no effect on the new pimple that was emerging on the side of my mouth. It worked only on the big pimples which dried off the next day. Here you can see the before and after picture. In Image 1, you can see my pimple in full bloom before using the kit. In Image 2, you can see a slightly shrunken pimple the next morning the redness has also reduced.
For me, a pimple never vanishes overnight because my acne is resilient. I think my pimples should be sent to war because they can fight anyone under any condition. No matter what weapon you use against them, they will fight till their last breath and will resurrect in the most crucial time. They are such strong fighters I wonder why they are wasting their time on my face when they could be winning wars. Hope they realise their potential and put their resilience to better use. Coming to the kit, I felt that the cleanser, clearing pad and the mask were effective together. But I would not use it as a treatment for acne. If I have to purchase the individual product, then I would purchase the full-sized cleansing pads because I felt it was the most effective of the three. I did not like the mask because I did not find the serum nourishing enough. The cleanser was decent but there was nothing extraordinary about it.
I give COSRX One Step Pimple Clear Kit 3.5 out of 5 rating. COSRX One Step Pimple Clear Kit is more of a sample kit of the three products. Do not expect your pimples to vanish after one use. Do try it to see which product works the best for your acne. I preferred the pimple clear pad the most. Let me know which one you liked the best.
