Product Review: CosRx Galactomyces Power Essence


      This review is a long time coming, I got the CosRX Galactomyces Power Essence quite some time ago but am now getting around to reviewing it. I've used up quite a bit of the product, I would say maybe I've gone through a third of the bottle. I love the min-max philosophy behind CosRx, they want to put out a product that has maximum effect with minimal packaging and price which creates a result-driven product but at an affordable cost. I'm all for that!

Review

      I love this stuff. My skin responds so well to fermented ingredients. Right now I'm experiencing some minor breakouts and I've noticed that putting a thicker layer of the essence on the blemishes calms them down and makes them less red. It's scentless, clear, slightly sticky in texture and gentle on the skin. It's become my holy grail fermented essence. I mean, seriously, it's $20! It just goes to show that you don't have to invest in expensive luxury skincare products to get a great product and I love how some companies are realizing that (Deciem is another skincare brand that has a similar philosophy which I've already purchased a few products from but they haven't been shipped out yet). I normally use it nightly along with the traditional water essence, but since I've been breaking out lately I've recently been using it both day and night. A little bit goes a long way, and you can layer it 2-3 times without it feeling sticky. It absorbs well, and overall it's just a great product for a very reasonable price!

Concluding Remarks

      Highly recommend for anyone and for all types of skin including sensitive acne prone ones. It's definitely a product that will be in  my beauty shelf from now on. It's so gentle and absorbs so quickly that you can use it year round. The only con I see from this product is that it's only available from a limited number of authorized retailers in the US. Still, at only $20 at sites like Soko Glam, it's hardly a con that will prevent me from repurchasing it time and time again.
