Cosrx Honey Ceramide Full Moisture Cream review
Somewhen last year I stumbled upon the brand Cosrx. I was intrigued by its many acids but at the time I already had several in my routine or waiting to be tested. A few months later I caved into my curiosity and bought both the AHA BHA toner and a little while later the C20 serum after the repeated recommendations of a friend. It was a momentous day in skincare history for me because that was when I discovered the magic of Cosrx.
Now it has been a little less then a year since starting to use their products but I keep finding little miracles in their lineup.
|I really love their graphics!|
I chose to branch out a little and ordered things that I would generally not buy but suspected that they might suit my skin.
Today I will talk about the Honey Ceramide Full Moisture Cream (as you might have deduced by the title), a cream that might look plain and boring but which quickly became one of my favourite creams to date.
I love honey and honey containing products. I have very dry and dehydrated skin and ceramides are supposed to be just the kind of ingredients my skin needs. I also suffer from eczema occasionally and other sensitivities that make my skin prone to barrier issues. I wanted to test if ceramides would be as good as I read they should since I was not happy with my previous ceramide containing cream experience (looking at you Good Cera).

The cream is quite plain looking. The packaging is pretty bland, yet attractive (if that can even be a thing) in a medical sort of way. It is scentless which I honestly appreciate since I am so scentsitive.
It is on the thicker side but feels smooth and velvety in a luxurious kind of way. It sinks in super fast though without leaving a film or oiliness at all.
It is not heavy and has a satin finish which leaves my face very healthy looking.

|Excuse my unflattering in between color and dorky face. But look at the smooth glow I got after just 1 week of usage!|
This cream is suited for any skin type but I do think that it is better for combo to dry types or oily skin during the night. It is neither very hydrating nor is it super occlusive. It seems to be a good in-between sort of cream. It is also not one of those miracle products like the C20/21.5 serum but it is very solid in what it does and that is the reason why I think this will become a staple product for me. If you have dehydrated skin, add some hydrating products into your routine and this cream will give you nourishment and make sure that the hydration won’t evaporate without being a super thick occlusive. If you have dry skin, add a few drops of facial oil to the cream for an extra soothing experience without having an oily film on your face. If you have both dry and dehydrated skin do all of the above as I do. My face hasn’t been this glowy, smooth and clear for a long time and I absolutely blame my mostly Cosrx routine. I have since switched a few products out and even though my skin hasn’t been as wonderful as in the photos it is still pretty up to par. I already reordered the products I ran out of and hope that reintroducing them will give me that perfect complexion again!
|My face is rarely that smooth or even. I usually have redness on my cheeks and the only bit of red here is around the nostril and I was having allergies at the time|
I am completely aware I sound like a Cosrx rep but believe me once you find more than one HG product in one brand you will probably be just over the moon as I am! For now I will continue purchasing their stuff to see if I find another one of these gems and if not I will be quite happy using the ones I have so far. If you can’t wait for me to review the rest, here is a little bit of a mini review of some of them.
