Cosrx One Step Moisture Up Kit is a hot item for summer. It combines 2 best sellers from the brand the Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser and One Step Moisture Up Pads together with great hydrating sheet mask. Overall, amazing combo for people with oily skin and for everyone who wants to do their beauty on the go. I will mainly focus on the sheet mask as this product is only presented in the Cosrx One Step Moisture Up Kit and can not be purchased loose.
The sheet mask is made of thin and soft cotton like fiber that is very absorbent and has a light peachy-pink hue. The essence of the mask is very slimy to the touch thanks to high concentration of snail mucin in the ingredients (2nd on the list). There is a faint pleasant aroma that reminds me of fresh linen for some reason. Essence is transparent and slippery to the touch, it is quite viscous and resembles light gel.
Overall fit and adherence are very good. The size of the mask is just enough for my larger than average face. This one would be perfect for people with smaller faces. The cutouts are well sized and have an excellent placement on the sheet. Wearing time is about 20-25 minutes. For extra cooling and refreshment I've place the sheet mask pouch into the fridge for 5 minutes prior to application. That is just enough time to cleanse and tone your face if you do it at home.
I like the versatility of this product and the fact that you get to try the bestsellers in the same routine if you haven't tried them before. In my case the cleanser is too fragranced. I hate the scent of the tea tree oil and I regret buying the full size bottle. If I would have used this kit before I would not purchase the full size cleanser in the first place. The toning pads are lovely and soft, unfortunately they would be another pass for me. My skin is troubled and those pads are too basic for my needs. I much prefer layering my toners with my hands for better control of end feel on my skin.
As for the mask, this stuff is wonderful. My skin is well hydrated and feels very fresh after use. Fine lines and wrinkles are less visible and my skin feels very comfortable after use. I would definitely buy more of these for my vacations purely because of the mask and the fact that such kit is an amazing space saver. The price varies greatly amongst the shops. I got this one from iHerb for three bucks which is a great deal.
