ABOUT COSRX

COSRX is a K-Beauty favourite brand. It’s a great introduction brand into the Korean skincare scene. Cosrx is a very affordable brand and carries a number of products that suit different skin types.

When I first started learning about Korean skincare I heard lots of great things about this brand but struggled to find vendors that shipped to Australia, so I put it on the back burner. Fast forward a year and I am so happy to find it’s so easily available to purchase in Australia. There are now a number of different vendors who sell this brand, some places carry products other do not but none the less there is a great variety.

The name COSRX comes from a mesh of Cosmetics meets RX (pharmacy/prescription).

Star Ingredients

Contains 68% Oryza Sativa (Rice) Extract: nourishment and moisturisation

Contains 2% Niacinamide: usually found in skincare products targeted to anti-aging, acne and dry skin

HOW I USE

There are 3 different ways you can use this mask according to the Cosrx website:

1. As an overnight mask: Use as the last step of your pm skincare routine.

2. As a wash off mask: Apply a generous amount leave on for 15 minutes and then wash off.

3. As a morning cream: Use as the last step of your am skincare routine and proceed with your normal makeup routine.

I used this as an overnight mask after I applied my moisturiser in my pm skincare routine. Personally, I wouldn’t want to use it as a morning skincare routine, I’d prefer to use a SPF moisturiser.

When I do my pm routine, the last few steps consist of applying my Polatam Oak Tree Sap moist cream, my pm night moisturiser and then the sleeping mask. It sounds like a lot of moisturisers but it’s worked wonders for my skin doing this routine.

MY EXPERIENCE

Cosrx Rice Sleeping Mask brought my interest back to sleeping masks. A majority of the sleeping masks I’ve tried in the past have left me completely underwhelmed and not reaching for them on a regular basis. I couldn’t understand everyone’s raving about sleeping masks.

Using this sleeping mask I wake up noticing a natural healthy glow to my skin that I never seen before with the regular use of a sleeping mask.

Recently, in the last couple of months, I have started to notice that my skin requires lots of moisturisation even though I have crazy oily skin. That only works with the right combination of moisturisers and this is one of them. It may be a winter thing that my skin needs this extra step but I will test it again come summer.

FINAL THOUGHTS

I really love this sleeping mask, it absorbed into my skin very easily without a heavy, sticky layer. The next morning I didn’t wake up with a shiny layer the next morning. There was one sleeping mask I used in the past that would leave a sticky layer on my skin and didn’t absorb, leaving me waking up in the morning stuck to my pillow case. Something tells me that isn’t the purpose of a sleeping mask,

There are a number of sleeping masks that I have in my stash, including the Honey version of this mask and am currently using the Kicho one.

REPURCHASE?

Yes! Cosrx is very affordable and easily accessible. This mask comes in a couple of different sizes, I went with the smaller one so I could try it first given my previous experiences. So far this is the best sleeping mask I have ever used and depending out how I go with the honey version I will be buying this again.

 

This mask is available from Lilac and Berries for $25.

    Hi Soph,

    I’ve been loving the COSRX ultimate nourishing rice mask but finding I’m using it up quickly. I use it at night and in the morning as well. Can you recommend other products that might complement this routine (maybe I need an ampoule or serum)? I have dry/combination skin that tends to be dry, particularly around the nose area. I have tried a sample of the Pyunkang Yul Ampoule but it’s so thick and difficult to apply I’m hesitant to purchase the full size.
