The products that I’m discussing today were sent to me to review from Style Korean. For those of you who don’t know, COSRX is an award winning Korean Skincare line that basically combined the words Cosmetics and Prescriptions to form their brand name. They’ve been featured in all of the major magazines around the country and are a favorite in the beauty world. Today we’re going to be talking about the COSRX Hydrium product line and why I like it so much!
The COSRX Hydrium product line is all about hydration! This set of products are perfect if you’re experiencing dryness, flakiness, irritation, and just dry skin in general. Plus, it’s suitable for even acne/oily skin types. Yes, even acne skin can be dry and irritated.
Thanks to Style Korean, I was able to try quite a few products from the COSRX Hydrium product line. My skin is doing great since I’ve been following this routine. What impresses me is that the products are at a fantastic price point and that I’m seeing results.
No, I don’t have problematic skin for the most part (I realize how lucky I am…I know) but I do have some issues with dryness and this routine has helped me a lot. My skin feels hydrated and plump. If I’ve had a day in the sun, I make sure to really use the ampoules and apply a nice layer of the Gel Cream to really give it the hydration it needs. Plus, the Toner is fantastic. I keep a bottle of that at the pool with me and regularly spray my face.
COSRX Hydrium Product Line
Triple Hyaluronic Moisturizing Cleanser
The COSRX Triple Hyaluronic Moisturizing Cleanser is a great cleanser. I love how it’s creamy and foamy, without stripping my skin of hydration. It features a plant-derived surfactant (Coconut) also features three different types of Hyaluronic Acid.
This deep cleansing cleanser gently removes impurities as well as makeup, but doesn’t strip the skin of it’s moisture. I use this for my main cleanser as well as my second step cleanser most days.

My Thoughts: I really like this cleanser. It’s rich and foamy and does a great job of cleansing my skin. I love that this doesn’t strip hydration from my skin and instead helps to hydrate the complexion. If I was wearing heavy makeup, I’d probably use an oil-based cleanser before this one.
Hydrium Watery Toner
I love a good Toner and this Watery Toner from the COSRX Hydrium product line is a great Toner option. It features the Vitamin B5, Hydrium Synergy -8 Complex which basically features a lot of Hyaluronic Acid that helps deeply hydrate the skin and keeps it hydrated throughout the day. Also, Allantoin and d-Panthenol.
The best part of this Toner is not only can you use this as your third step in your skincare routine, but you can also apply it to the skin as a mist throughout the day to keep it hydrated. Experiencing some irritation? Soak several cotton pads with this and place on the skin to act as a sheet mask.

My Thoughts: I love this toner. It is really hydrating and it comforts my skin. It leaves my skin feeling moisturized and ready for the next steps. I’ve used it on cotton pads and left on areas that are dry and it’s worked like a charm.
Centella Aqua Soothing Ampoule
The Centella Aqua Soothing Ampoule is one of those products that might seem tricky at first. It’s really not. A lot of people don’t know when to use this type of product in their routine. Cleanse, tone, essence, serum, ampoule.
This product is pure hydration for your skin. Apply two to three drops and your skin will instantly feel hydrated and soothed. It’s not heavy at all and helps your skin feel plump and moisturized.
This is even great for those with angry, irritated skin, and for those with breakouts. Because this product features B5, it acts as a calming agent and helps with inflammation. Plus, Centella Asiatica and Madecassoside help to comfort the skin.
You can apply this straight to the skin or mix it with one of your moisturizers. It’s not sticky, it doesn’t feel heavy on the skin, and it’s fast absorbing. So whether your skin just feels dry and irritated, or maybe it’s inflamed because of breakouts; this might be a good product to add to your routine.

My Thoughts: I want to use this more to see a long-term benefit. So far, I really like it. I’m in our pool a lot and while I wear sunscreen and a hat, I’m still seeing my skin need more hydration.
I apply this after my toner, essence and my serums. Sometimes I’ll add a drop or two of this to my moisturizer also. It can’t hurt, right?!? I love that it’s not heavy and it’s not sticky at all. I don’t have to worry about anything clogging my pores either.
The Hydration Combo You Need!
Want a soothing and moisturizing combo? Combine the Triple Hydration Moisture Ampoule and the Moisture Power Enriched Cream! This duo will help to deeply hydrate your skin and will also help to form a moisture shield to prevent moisture loss! I keep these two in my fridge so it feels really cold and soothing when I apply them!
Green Tea Aqua Soothing Gel Cream
The Green Tea Aqua Soothing Gel Cream feels like jelly on the skin and it instantly cools and calms my complexion. I like to add a drop or two of the Hydrium Triple Hyaluronic Moisture Ampoule for a major dose of hydration.
This Gel Cream doesn’t feel heavy at all. Id even go as far to say that it doesn’t feel sticky, but you have to find the correct amount that you like to use. I once used a bit much and it took a while to dry down. I feel like a small amount of this product goes a pretty far way!
I love this moisturizer for when my skin is inflamed. Too much time in the sun? This is perfect! It soothes the skin and instantly comforts the complexion. If you live in an area that is hot and humid, this is a great option for your moisturizer.

My thoughts: Like I said above, this is a really good moisturizer. I especially enjoy it because it is so hydrating, without feeling like a heavy cream sitting on my skin. It’s super lightweight and I like that it doesn’t clog my pores or cause me to be oily. I think this is a great moisturizer, especially if you live in hot, humid environment.
I also got to experience the COSRX Hydrium Triple Hyaluronic Water Wave Sheet Mask. It retails for only $4.00 and I was impressed! I think that using a sheet mask two to three times a week (if you can, it’s ok if you can’t) can make such a difference in your complexion. My skin is instantly more hydrated and plumped when I’m using them. Plus, they’re only $4.00!
