The most effective BHA peeling?

K-Beauty skin care has been an integral part of my care routine for several years. Today I will introduce one of my favorite K-Beauty products for blemished skin to you.

With a share of 4% BHA acid, it is a very effective chemical peel, where you can quickly see results.

COSRX BHA peeling product promise

The K-Beauty skin care product was developed to fight nasty blackheads . It is also made to remove dead skin cells from the pores and to reduce them.

The betaine salyciate and the BHA acid additionally strengthen the skin barrier . These ingredients also help the skin to regenerate better and form new skin cells.

The COSRX BHA Blackhead Power Liquid contains neither parabens nor artificial colors and fragrances. Of course it’s cruelty-free too!


The liquid is in a plastic bottle that looks more like a glass bottle from further away. The packaging makes a valuable impression. The product design is clean and minimalistic – like all products of the brand. I find the design concept very appealing.

Pump dispenser

The bottle has a pump dispenser. This is not optimal for my taste. Over time, however, I got used to this idiosyncratic thing. 😉

Included are 100ml for € 20-23. The price varies depending on the shop. I conveniently ordered my bottle through Amazon .


Benefits of BHA acid for the skin

BHA acid is very well tolerated and can be used on all skin types. This acid has special advantages for oily and impure skin. Salicylic acid, for example, binds fats and cleans the pores so deep into the pores. This can have a pore-reducing effect. BHA also controls excessive sebum production and has anti-inflammatory properties. It is a good means for long-term removal of impurities. The chemical peeling of the skin is also much gentler than using a mechanical peeling.

You can find further advantages of BHA acid (in combination with AHA) in my review of ➔ The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution .

Acid peels are usually in the pH range of 3-4. Note: The lower the pH value of the acid, the stronger the exfoliating effect! Lt. According to COSRX, the pH of the liquid is 4.

Ingredients of the COSRX BHA peeling

The chemical peeling from COSRX contains few, very good ingredients.

” Salix Alba (Willow) Bark Water, Butylene Glycol, Betaine Salicylate, Niacinamide, 1,2-Hexanediol, Arginine, Panthenol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Xanthan Gum, Ethyl Hexanediol “

The most important ingredients contained have the following positive effects on your skin:

Willow Bark Water: contains salicylic acid aka BHA, which naturally exfoliates the skin. Removes dandruff and clears the pores. Stimulates cell renewal.

Betaine salicylates: soothing, can improve the skin texture.

Niacinamides: fight, among other things, enlarged pores and reduce small wrinkles. Niacinamides are said to be a skin care trend in 2020. You can find out more here . Including 2 more trend ingredients for this year!

Sodium hyaluronate: binds moisture, plumps up skin. You can find a detailed report from me here about the HADA LABO Hyaluronic Acid Lotion . Including further information on the ingredient hyaluronic acid.


Texture of the chemical peel from COSRX K-Beauty

The BHA Blackhead Power Liquid is watery, but feels gel-like at the same time. In the Swatch you can see that it runs straight from the back of your hand.

After application, the skin is slightly sticky, but not sticky. Once the product has been absorbed, a soft feeling remains.


Use of the BHA peeling from COSRX

★ Clean skin thoroughly
★ Apply to toner in the morning or evening on affected areas of the face
★ leave-on product
★ Use 2-3 times a week
★ Leave to soak in completely before applying other care products

A few comments on my part:

Apply BHA products better in the evening. The skin becomes more translucent through the use of chemical peels. Free radicals or the like can be more easily penetration. The next morning, be sure to use sunscreen.

My sunscreen recommendations: Missha All Around Safe Block Essence Sun SPF45 ′ [ Review ] and my current favorite is the COSRX Aloe Soothing SPF50 .

Using 2-3x a week is far too much for absolute beginners. Especially since the concentration is 4% BHA! In many conventional BHA peels you will only find 1% (slight impurities) or 2% (stronger impurities). Therefore: give your skin enough time to get used to the chemical peel!

During my first attempts at walking with acids, I only integrated them into my care routine once a week. It was only from the 3rd or 4th week that I increased the application to 2-3 times.

And very important: If you are allergic to acetylsalicylic acid (contained in Aspririn) then do not use BHA!


COSRX BHA Blackhead Power Liquid my experiences

I ONLY use acid peels in my evening skincare! Before that, I clean my face thoroughly. Currently in the double cleansing method with the Rituals Namasté Cleansing Balm ‘ and the First Aid Beauty Face Cleanser’ . After cleaning, I apply a toner, which I give a short time to soak into the skin.

From the BHA Liquid from COSRX, I use 1-2 pumps per application . As I have already mentioned, the pump dispenser is not optimal. The amount that comes out varies.

Depending on your desire, I only apply the BHA Liquid with my hands or a reusable cotton pad from pandoo ‘ [ Review ] . If I use a cotton pad, I work the product into my facial skin in small circular movements. According to my research, it is more effective to use the product in combination with a pad. The dirt is better removed from the pores. ➔ read at the super-twins

chemical peeling with BHA my experience report

only apply the potent BHA skin care product to my problematic facial areas . For me, these are the entire forehead, the nose and the skin areas near the nose and chin. Roughly speaking, I only use the Cosrx product in the T zone .

I always let the liquid soak in completely, at least 30 minutes. Only then do I apply other skin care products such as serums, oils or a cream.

My skin is used to chemical peels, so I use the product up to 4x a week. In the last 2 months I have used it very little (at most 1-2 times a week) and my skin condition has immediately worsened again. Therefore I will consistently use the chemical peel again!

” Skin care with an immediate effect! 


Experience report on chemical peeling with BHA acid from COSRX K-Beauty

The BHA Liquid from Cosrx ensures an immediate effect! The next morning the skin feels soft and even. Of course, pimples have not disappeared overnight as if by magic …

This positive effect occurs after several weeks of consistent use. With my skin it was about 4 weeks until I noticed real success . My underlays on the forehead have decreased significantly. Pimples no longer form so quickly and in large numbers. Existing pimples heal faster.

It is difficult for me to judge the size of the pores around my nose. Although I have very oily skin, I don’t find my pores extremely large. Yes, I see them, but other women with my skin type have much bigger ones. At least there I was lucky. * g * Therefore I can not draw a final (positive) conclusion here.

Now you have received all important information about the Cosrx BHA Blackhead Power Liquid from me. If you have oily, blemished skin, this product could be a game changer for that skin!

If 4% BHA (which is a lot!) Is too much for you to start with, I have listed BHA skin care products here that are formulated with 1-2% BHA acid.[Advertisement]  Other  BHA products
