COSRX One Step Original Clear Pads Review
These pads are designed to be used as a toner step and come in a handy resealable tub with 70 pads inside. One side is embossed and the other smooth. They are designed for gentle daily exfoliation with mild doses of BHA to help with acne / spot prevention.
I am not an acne sufferer, but I get spots like everyone else. I also have oily / combo skin, so a daily dose of BHA is always welcome at keeping that sebum in control. I was using these pads twice a day, starting with the embossed side to loosen any skin debris, and then the smooth side to sweep away the impurities.
They are slightly drying and do give off a very strong smell, but I found my experience a positive one overall. My sebum levels were slightly reduced and any spots disappeared really quickly with continued use. I would definitely recommend these pads for combo / oily skin types, and whilst these pads are considered to be your toner step, I still would use a hydrating toner after for that added oomph
