A lot of us are dealing with new, unexpected territory right now, and our skin is not having it. It’s like an angry toddler, throwing tantrum after tantrum in the form of blackheads, whiteheads, dryness and more — unable to understand that we’re not hurting it on purpose. We’re just not sure how to help it!
Maybe you had the perfect skincare routine just a few months ago and thought, “This is it. No more changes,” and are now suddenly left wondering how things could be so different. It happens, though. There are so many factors that can affect your skin, both internally and externally, and when your everyday routine is suddenly switched to a quarantine routine, you might need to change things up. Even Emily Ratajkowski had to do the same, which is what led Us to our new favorite product!
“My skin freaked out at the beginning of quarantine,” Ratajkowski explained in a recent series of Instagram Story updates. Luckily, she found what worked for her, and walked fans through her new routine. She showed off this COSRX essence, and we loved to see it — since COSRX is one of the best when it comes to seriously effective yet affordable formulas. Plus, it’s on sale right now at Dermstore!
Snail mucin has blown up as an unexpectedly effective reparative ingredient over the past few years, as Korean beauty techniques and formulas have become more beloved worldwide. This anti-aging essence has consistently been a fan-favorite, earning nearly all five-star reviews at Dermstore. Shoppers say it easily earned “all-time favorite” status, making it an easy re-buy and eliminating any skincare FOMO. They “couldn’t imagine starting [their] day without this”!
With the combined powers of snail secretion filtrate (no, it doesn’t look or smell gross) and panthenol, this essence may check all of your boxes. It claims to moisturize, soothe, heal, balance and brighten, all while minimizing the appearance of pores, fading scars and filling in wrinkles. Simply apply it after cleansing and toning and before any serums!
This essence is free of sulfates, parabens, oils and fragrance, and shoppers say anyone looking for “glowy and soft” skin (a.k.a. everyone) is going to love it. As one reviewer said, “Please just put it in your cart” — especially while this sale is on!
