Why low pH in your cleanser?

Your skin is natural acidic (around pH 4,5) and the regular cleanser is normally alkaline and around pH 6-12.

Cleansers are normally made alkaline due to that it helps remove the dirt on once face. The backside of this alkalinity is that it causes your skin to dry out. So going for a low pH cleanser is great for all skin types.

My thoughts on COSRX Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser

COSRX Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser is one of these cleansers that has been around for a really long time and seem to be loved by almost everybody. I tried it many years ago and wasn’t super impressed but decided to buy it again for me (super dry skin) and for my teenage son to try.

Packaging

It’s packaging has been the same since last time I tried it and it is just a regular tube packaging. It is softer plastic which makes it easy to get all the product out.

Texture and scent

If you are really sensitive to scent this might not be the one for you. It is rather strong in its tee tree scent and that was one of the things that I had problems with before. Today it doesn’t bother me as much. I don’t know if they changed it in any way or if it is just me who has become less sensitive. The scent is not bothering my son so I guess more it is my nose that has a problem. The scent do not linger on my face so at least that is a good thing. The texture is gel like and it is easy to get it to foam up nicely.

Cleansing abilities

COSRX Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser does a great job in removing my makeup and making my skin feel clean and nice. It does not strip my skin from moisture or make my skin feel uncomfortable in any way. It is not a hydrating cleanser (for really dry skin) but it does not remove all the moisture from my skin either. As for my son who has oily skin it made his redness calmer. I cant say that he is that great in using it as he should but at least the amount he is using it has still made a little difference to his skin

Can be used as a second cleanser, following an oil based cleanser (if you follow the Korean double cleansing method) or as a one and only cleanser.

Conclusion

If you are looking for a really nice cleanser that works well for any skin type this is absolutely one you should try. The scent is rather strong though so if you are sensitive to that this might not be the one. But it does a good job without stripping all the moisture from your skin.

I give this product 6/7
