REVIEW: Cosrx's Centella Blemish Cream

Cosrx's Centella Blemish Cream was really something that I ordered out of desperation. Late last year, I was breaking out terribly on my inner cheeks, so I went to Wishtrend (Qoo10) and ordered a bunch of acne/ zit medication. And because JH has been raving non-stop about Cosrx, this cream found itself in my cart. I only started using it after my whole laser-winterland fiasco. And boy, do I love it! The above is actually my 2nd tub. And I have gotten my brother and C hooked on this too. *grins*

According to the information on Wishtrend, the Cosrx Centella Blemish Cream is made for sensitive, acne-prone skin. It is formulated to reduce stress on the skin through hydration and treatment that helps improve and relieve sensitive skin. It forms a non-oily barrier over the skin so that the natural ingredients can work on imperfections in peace. The base ingredient is Centella Asiatica Leaf Water. It is derived from Centella Asiatica, which is a medicinal herb that has been shown to help with wound healing by speeding the process, boosting antioxidants, increasing bloody supply and strengthening the skin.

The cream takes on an ointment-like feel and smells medicinal, which is actually pretty calming for me (Then again, I really like the smell of herbs, Chinese or Western.). I use it as the last step of my skincare routine, dotting only the areas which are red and spotty. And when I wake up in the morning, the zits don't completely disappear but redness is visibly reduced. No kidding. Tried and tested by my brother and C too. And the best thing is that it doesn't aggravate my eczema-prone skin! *throws confetti*

As mentioned earlier, the zits are still there but smaller. I see this more as a long-term, maintenance kind of skin care, rather than an immediate, aggressive spot treatment... Which makes it really ideal for sensitive skin. :D

There are other products in the Centella range such as the toner and the ampoule but they weren't as effective. I use the toner as an occasional mist (Just so that I use it up.) and half of the ampoule is just lying around in my toilet. :\ So if you're getting anything from this range, do pick up the cream first!

Cosrx Centella Blemish Cream is priced at USD15.20 on Wishtrend.
