An In-Depth Review of the Cosrx Propolis Line

An In-Depth Review of the Cosrx Propolis Line

This year, my favorite brand COSRX expanded its Propolis Line. The previously skin-nourishing 20 ml Cosrx Propolis Light Ampoule is now available in 30 ml for the same price and has a humongous 280 ml Toner and 65 ml Face Cream. All three products more or less have similar ingredients with different concentrations of propolis. Doesn’t this sound exciting?

Now, why this line excites me so much? Propolis as an ingredient has amazing skin hydrating, nourishing, anti-bacterial and skin barrier improving ability, with almost no risk of irritation, unless one is allergic to bees or honey.

For whom is this line made for?

This entire line targets sensitive, acne-prone skin which often deals with excessive dehydration and surface dryness. So every skin type can enjoy all the three products.

COSRX Propolis Synergy Toner: COSRX Propolis Light Ampoule: COSRX Propolis Light Cream:
Normal, Dry and combination skin: Dry summer and winter. All skin types: Winter. All skin types: Dry Summer.
Oily skin: Winter. Dry Skin: Dry Summer and Winter. Oily skin: Winter.

 

INGREDIENTS

All the 3 products have similar base ingredients and are absolutely free from essential oils  and are fragrance-free:

COSRX Propolis Synergy Toner: COSRX Propolis Light Ampoule: COSRX Propolis Light Cream:
Contains 72.6% of Black Bee Propolis Contains 83.25% of Black Bee Propolis Contains 65.69% of Black Bee Propolis
10% of Honey Extract Honey Extract
  Royal Jelly Extract
  Sunflower Seed Oil: Improves skin barrier

 

HOW TO USE:

COSRX Propolis Synergy Toner: COSRX Propolis Light Ampoule: COSRX Propolis Light Cream:
Right after cleansing, use it at a toner step and this toner is perfect for 7 skin method.

 

I sometime layer it 3 times or 7 times depending on how dry is my skin on that particular day.

 

I sometimes drench thin layered cotton pad with this toner and use it for a DIY sheet mask.

This is a very nourishing ampoule and acts as a perfect replacement for a face oil.

 

I use it at my serum/ ampoule step, before using cream.

 

Also, the day/night I want to boost the moisture level of my face cream, I just add a few drops of it to my moisturiser.

Use this cream at the last step of your skincare routine.

 

The Night my skin feels cracking Dry, I apply a uniform thick layer on my face and let the cream sit in skin. This way it works as a sleeping mask.

 

PACKAGING:

I am in love with the sleek simple packaging of new Cosrx products!
