COSRX AHA Whitehead Power Liquid Review

COSRX AHA 7 Whitehead Power LiquidEveryone suffers from some form of acne, whether it is blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, cystic acne, etc., it is all classified as Acne – and Acne is a real B I T C H, excuse the language, but you all know I’m telling the truth.

As someone who has suffered from mild to moderate acne since my teens I have been on the manhunt to find products that keep my skin as clear and poreless as humanly possible FOREVER, and I have spent thousands and thousands of dollars along the way trying to find my Holy Grail products. I’ve purchased everything from super high-end regimens, facial packages at spas, laser treatments at the Dermatologist’s office, drugstore brands, and everything in between. Each category rendered some success, but none offered the kind of results I wanted or expected. That is until I started using COSRX skincare products and found my product combination that works.

Before I get into all the details about COSRX AHA 7 Whitehead Power Liquid I’m going to tell you that I believe that you do not have to use products from the same brand to achieve great results, and just because you love one product from a brand, it doesn’t mean that you will love all products from that brand – or that your skin will love every formula. So, having said that I encourage each of you to use the products that you have liked and not concern yourself with buying an entire regimen strictly from one brand (unless, of course, that is what works for you).

The second thing I want to say is that I am not a dermatologist, doctor, scientist, aesthetician, or any other kind of “skin expert,” nor am I warranting any product discussed on my site, including this one. Now that we have all that out of the way, lets talk Whiteheads…..

This Whitehead “Power Liquid” is a powerhouse treatment that removes pore-clogging debris and dead skin cells to reveal smooth, clear, bright and even-toned skin. The first and most abundant ingredient is a natural AHA (Apple Water) and the added Glycolic Acid (Fourth on the ingredient list) makes for an extremely effective exfoliant that is formulated gently enough not to irritate sensitive skin.

As I mentioned earlier I have a real issue with whiteheads on my chin, blackheads on my nose, and I do get the occasional pimple on the cheek or chin. You will not ever be able to tell from my pics (thankfully) and that is because I am diligent with caring for my skin – trust me when I tell you though, if I skip more than 1 day on my beauty routine, my skin will immediately begin breaking-out.

One of the first things that attracted me to COSRX AHA 7 Whitehead Power Liquid was the short and sweet ingredient list, the second thing that attracted me was the affordable price.

This Whitehead “Power Liquid” is a powerhouse treatment that removes pore-clogging debris and dead skin cells to reveal smooth, clear, bright and even-toned skin. The first and most abundant ingredient is a natural AHA (Apple Water) and the added  Glycolic Acid (Fourth on the ingredient list) makes for an extremely effective exfoliant that is formulated gently enough not to irritate sensitive skin.

I have used other exfoliants from other brands (including this one) and I find them to work on small blackheads, however, they do not work for me on whiteheads or on pimples. This one does though, and as an added bonus this product also reduces the appearance of fine lines, sun damage and hyper pigmentation while diminishing the size of my pores. This product is an absolute Super Star, Holy Grail item for me and is on my MUST BUY LIST.

Please Note: You might experience some dryness when you first begin using this product. If exfoliants are new for you I would recommend using this only a few times a week and then adjusting to daily. I currently use it 2 times daily, if I feel I am getting dry I switch this to only 1x per day.

This is the order in which I use this product in my regimen – feel free to adjust this to what works for you:

  1. Eye Makeup Remover
  2. Oil Cleanser (only if I have on a full face of makeup – otherwise I go straight to #3)
  3. Face Cleanser
  4. Toner
  5. COSRX AHA 7 Whitehead Power Liquid
  6. Essence or Serum – depends on how much hydration I feel I need
  7. Sunscreen during the day or Night Cream at night
  8. Eye Cream
  9. Neck and Decolletage Cream (I use a more moisturizing formula on these areas)

Here is the full list of ingredients for your review.

Ingredients: Pyrus Malus (Apple) Fruit Water, Butylene Glycol, Glycolic Acid, Niacinamide, Sodium Hydroxide, 1,2-Hexanediol, Panthenol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Xanthan Gum, Ethyl Hexanediol

    I do have horrible whiteheads as well which i dont understand.. my chin and my nose are horrible. but the rest of my face is fine, i only have acne if its time of the month and i have small pores 🙁
    i always try to search how to diminish whiteheads but a lot of blogger, youtuber are mainly talked about blackheads only.. how many days you see the difference on ur whitheads after using this product ?

      Hi, thanks for asking. I saw a difference after about 2 weeks. Whiteheads are a lot deeper than blackheads are so they take longer and are harder to treat. I also find that if I skip days, or washing that I immediately see it getting worse. I hope this helps.
