Welcome (Back) to my blog for review about skincare what I used in my skin. So, today I’ll review COSRX product again hahaha.. But I dont know i love every product from cosrx eventhough hard to get it. Maybe my skin have suitable with some of COSRX product. This product has been old released but I was just using it, because I need moisturizer after experiencing inflamation skin and my skin feel dry in some area. Eventhough have problem skin, I’m keep using exfoliating but minimalist exfoliating for skin especially for sensitive skin.

Cosrx answer mostly my skin problem, and in PHA Moisture Renewal Power Cream, I find solution.

Key ingredients

  • Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Fruit Extract: Otherwise known as coconut oil, this is what makes the cream moisturizing. However, it could be a potential acne trigger.
  • Gluconolactone: This is the PHA exfoliant. It is only at 3%, which is quite low. Interestingly, this type of PHA is also an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory.

For your information PHA is one of exfoliating other than BHA and AHA especially for sensitive skin or minimalilst irritate during exfoliating skin.

How to Use:

Applying product after essence/hydrating toner (for me using Pyunkang Yul). After this apply as needed except eye area. But sometimes I apply in eye area because moisturized and no greasy. Then don’t forget using sunscreen for next step in day routine.

From the klog review

  • When using as a mask/Sleeping mask: As the last step in your nighttime routine, apply a thin layer to your face avoiding the eye area. Leave on for 10 minutes and rinse off. Or leave on overnight, rinsing off in the morning.
  • When using as a moisturizer: After cleansing and toning, apply a thin layer to your face and allow it to completely absorb into the skin. Pat to aid absorption.

Scent dan Texture


The texture between a gel and cream with milk white colour. It feels oily texture not like moisturizer that greasy and thicky. For dry and sensitive skin I think like this product because free scent and not contain parfume at all.


COSRX PHA Moisture Renewal Power Cream comes with thick plastic jar which has colored white dominat and blue for PHA product information. Inside it there is barrier between cream and jar lid. Equipped spatula for easy and hyginee to applying.

Since my skin have problem like inflamtion and dry skin severe, I tried minimalist skincare comes to exfoliating and more often using hydrating product. I’m so happy find this product which became one of solution for my skin (From The Klog).

First of all tried this product like gel and cream, because this colour light white and texture like greasy texture. I doubt to apply for moisturizer before sunscreen/sunblock, so I using for night cream without sleeping mask because cream texture.


Week 1

But apparently can be day cream. Sometimes also using in eye area because very moist. Dont try like me if have skin problem in eye area. I’m experiencing purging but just 3-4 days, after this it’s okay.  First week my skin feel better than purging experiencing, slow but sure my acne purging calming.

Week 3

After 4 Weeks

This is awsome product, In week 1 my dry skin slow but sure moisturized and my purging is calming. Using  for 3-4 week my skin feel better and moist also acne fade away.

I feel smoother and was less flaky in the morning (because the weather always changing from dry to rainy and pollutan as one of acne factor from enviroment). I will be probably continue using this as a night mask better than day cream, because if you have acne prone/oily skin will increase sebum production.

Overall recomended for dry skin/ sensitive skin which heavy cream can moisturized your skin. For day Cream after back to normal skin, i just using as nighttime moisturizer or sleep mask and exfoliator that nourishes skin overnight for moisture barrier.
