Finding a product to hydrate your skin quickly and effectively is a pretty easy task! Moisturizers are loaded with ingredients like glycerin, jojoba, argan, and ceramides to smooth, soften, and hydrate your skin. But sometimes results can be fleeting depending on the ingredients in the formula and your skin is back to being dry again if you aren’t consistent with application. Find a product that retails moisture is key. You want something that not only hydrates your skin but also helps you to retain that moisture and even works to draw more moisture into your ingredient.

Cosrx Hyaluronic Acid Hydra Power Essence Review

Cosrx Hyaluronic Acid Hydra Power Essence ($20) is yet another fabulously great Korean skincare product that’s low in coast and extremely effective. You might recall earlier this month I reviewed CosRX Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence which might have made you turn away in disgust. If the idea of using snail extract on your face isn’t terribly appealing yet you’re still intrigued by the highly moisturizing formula you might find Hyaluronic Acid Hydra Power Essence a better option.

I’m of the strong belief that those suffering dullness or finer lines will see a smoother, brighter complexion if they inject a healthy amount of moisture into their diet. I can’t say I have finer lines on my face yet unless you count under my eyes. I do however, suffer from dullness and I always find that the more moisture I’m using the better my complexion looks.

Cosrx Hyaluronic Acid Hydra Power Essence is one of those star products that will not only hydrate your skin but also, helps to retail moisture and that to me is very important.

Finding a product to hydrate your skin quickly and effectively is a pretty easy task! Moisturizers are loaded with ingredients like glycerin, jojoba, argan, and ceramides to smooth, soften, and hydrate your skin. But sometimes results can be fleeting depending on the ingredients in the formula and your skin is back to being dry again if you aren’t consistent with application. Find a product that retails moisture is key. You want something that not only hydrates your skin but also helps you to retain that moisture and even works to draw more moisture into your ingredient.

In recent years, Hyaluronic Acid/Sodium Hyaluronate has become a star product for moisture retention. This particular ingredient acts like a magnet, drawing moisture into your skin and holding it. Apparently it can hold up to six liters of water and it does so without being heavy, greasy, or oily.

Cosrx’s Hyaluronic Acid Hydra Power Essence is a thin runny gel-texture that has a slightly tacky texture with absolutely no fragrance. The thing most fans of Cosrx is the fact they don’t include a lot of fillers in their skincare. They include the very important basics and that’s it. And in doing so, they create a very effective formula. One of the few ingredients in this essence is Sodium Hyaluronate which acts to draw moisture into your skin. It’s a very gentle formula that when used daily will improve the texture of skin as well as ease dullness while hydrating dull, dry, and dehydrated skin types. It’ll work across the board for a variety of skin types because the formula is so gentle and doesn’t create unnecessary oil or shine nor will it clog pores. Of course, everyone’s skin varies but this is a formula that should work for many.

You do want to remember to seal this product so, using it alone isn’t going to be as effective as using it in conjunction with your own moisturizer. Apply one to two pumps to your face and gentle place your palms against your skin to allow the product to absorb. It does have a slightly tacky feel at first but once absorbed that tackiness disappears. After application, apply your favorite moisturizer.

Smooth, soft, well hydrated skin that will be well protected against environmental damage (but please don’t forget your SPF as well!) and even acts to reverse damages caused by the environment.

If your skin is looking a little dull lately I’d wildly suggest trying this out for yourself and seeing the visible difference.

Great product

I’ve only been using this for a week but I can see the results already. My skin feels much more plump and fresh, and it absorbs completely into the skin really quickly. Great addition to my skincare regime!

So I bought the Hyaluronic Acid Power Essence last August, and I’ve begun incorporating it into my evening skincare routine. After washing my face, applying my toner, and putting on eye cream, I squeeze out two pumps (which is more than enough, because the consistency is thinner than a serum), pat it gently on my face, and massage it with my fingertips the way Koreans do. I then wait a minute to let my skin fully absorb the product, before applying the Anti-Wrinkle Collagen Gel.

COSRX Hyaluronic Acid Hydra Power Essence Review

I never really noticed how much of an impact Korean beauty has made on my routine, until the K-Beauty event at our Calyxta HQ last month, where I may have splurged on a few items, including the COSRX Hyaluronic Acid Hydra Power Essence.

cosrx hyaluronic acid hydra power essence review

Since my last post on my evening skincare routine, I’ve only removed Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Serum and changed Burt’s Bees’ Royal Jelly Eye Cream to Innisfree’s Orchid Eye Cream (another Korean product), and Orogold’s 24k Cell Renewal Cream to Celeteque’s Anti-Wrinkle Collagen Gel. So far, I’ve been very happy with all of the products but I felt like something was still missing ever since I took out the serum.

I assessed my regimen just to see what my skincare lacked—and while I liked the effects of Celeteque’s Anti-Wrinkle Collagen Gel, I felt like I still needed to add something that would hydrate and moisturize, and I heard from my dermatologist that hyaluronic acid worked wonders—even on oily skin!

It wasn’t a very hard decision to buy COSRX‘s Hyaluronic Acid Hydra Power Essence, because I’ve heard nothing but praises for the brand. I was first introduced to it during the Watsons K-Beauty Launch, and since then, it’s grown such a cult-following.

I hadn’t really noticed the positive effects until my grandmother asked me last week if I was doing anything new, because my skin looked healthier—like I had a natural glow. So I told her about COSRX, and she was impressed with the brand. For someone who has sensitive and acne-prone skin, mine didn’t react negatively at all.

I’m so happy with the Hyaluronic Acid Power Essence, and I’m definitely buying it again when I run out. Another COSRX product I’m crazy about is their Pimple Master Patch, which I’ll try to review separately. I also have the One Step Pimple Clear Pads, but I have yet to use it—so I’ll let you guys know my thoughts once I do.
