What is the first thing you do after you wake up in the morning? For me, I always wash my face as soon I get up in the morning to remove all the skincare residue from my face. I prefer using gentle facial wash which can clean my entire face thoroughly but doesn't make my skin feel dry. Luckily, there is a facial wash that can fulfill my need. It's a morning cleanser from COSRX called Low pH Good Morning Gel. I've been using this product for more than 2 years. Are you curious about this cleanser? Here is the review!

What is it?

COSRX Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser is a facial wash formulated with purifying botanical ingredients, this low pH formula works to soothe, refresh, and soften the skin without the stripping feeling.

Quick Product Notes

According to research by skincarisma , there are six product notes that you should know before using this product.

  1. Paraben-Free: Parabens is a group of preservative that is commonly added in cosmetic product to prevent bacteria from growing. Parabens can trigger the appearance of tumors or cancer, therefore it's better if we avoid products that contain parabens with unusual concentrations.Fortunately, this product contains no parabens!
  2. EU Allergen Free: The Scientific Committee on Consumer Safety (SCCS) has identified and established 26 cosmetic ingredients that may be allergens to contacts (potentially causing skin allergies) as shown in clinical or epidemiological studies. This product fortunately does not contain 26 cosmetic ingredients that do not comply with the agreed threshold so it is safe from potential skin allergies.
  3. Sulfate-Free: Sulfate is a large group of ingredients that acts as cleaning agent in cosmetic products, cleaning dirt from the skin and hair to allow water to clean it easily.Most people will not find problems with sulfate, but if your skin is possibly find allergic to products that contain sulfate, you can be quite relieved because this product does not contain sulfate.
  4. Fungai Acne (Malassezia) Safe: Malassezia can eat sebum then produce digestive leftovers in the form of fatty acids which can actually irritate the skin and ultimately inhibit the metabolism and growth of new skin cells. This product may not fungai acne safe, but so far I've never found any kinds of allergies or irritation on my face after using this product.
  5. Alcohol-Free: Some people with sensitive skin, simple alcohol can be enough to make their skin dry or irritating. The good news, this product is alcohol free.
  6. Silicone-Free: If you have used skin care, makeup or beauty products that make your skin look and feel softer, the product probably contains Silicone. Many people have reported that Silicons cause/expel acne, irritation, skin cannot breathe, cause clumping of cosmetic products and are difficult to wash. Fortunately this product is safe from silicon.

Texture and Scent

This cleanser comes out with tube packaging which is travel friendly and easy to apply. You can feel the scent of tea tree leaf oil as soon as you use this product. The scent is not too strong so you won't get interfere with the smell.
As the name implies, the texture of this product is kind of clear colored gel but not too thick. What makes this product different from other facial wash is it doesn't give so much foam when you apply it on your face.

As soon as you get up in the morning, first put the small amount of the cleanser on your hand (2-3 pumps), then pour 3-4 drops of water, next clean your face gently using the cleanser for about 1-2 minutes. Finally rinse you face with water! Pat your face slowly to make it absorbs perfectly.

My Thoughts

What I love the most about this cleanser is the smell. Because it's not too strong, I don't mind to use it every morning plus it can clean my face througly and doesn't thighten my skin like others facial cleanser did. If your skin type is dry, you definitely won't hesitate to try over this product, yes it can hydrated my face pretty well!

What I dislike about this cleanser, sometimes I have to rince the water on my face several times because if I don't I still can feel the cleanser stick on my face. So make sure you clean your face perfectly.
Overall I will give 4/5 for this cleanser. I have purchased this product several times and I do recommend trying this product especially for people with dry skin type!
