I get whiteheads very easily, especially around the ala nasi areas. Thought I'd give this a try and after applying it daily before bed, I rarely get whiteheads anymore. Love this product and definitely can't live without it :)!
I have a lot of bumps and leftover whiteheads from cystic acne on my chin and this product is really effective in getting rid of them. I've been using the AHA power liquid three times a week (only in the evenings because AHA increases sensitivity when exposed to sunlight) and then I follow up with a moisturizer. Try to avoid using the product too frequently because it may dry skin. After one week, my skin went through a purging phase and this is how the product works. It gets under the skin and pushes the pimples to the surface so the whiteheads/sebum are no longer stuck. After two weeks, I noticed less acne and my skin started to clear up. My skin is currently 90% better than before and I will repurchase another! I would definitely recommend this to those dealing with problematic sebum/whiteheads.
My skin felt tingly after using it however I haven't noticed a difference on my skin. However, my skin does feel incredibly smooth right after application but it doesn't last.
This product is good for clearing up comedones/pimples that have already come up to the surface of the skin. I have dry, sensitive skin and I find myself being able to use this product with not a lot of irritation. I do think that the COSRX BHA is more effective for clearing clogs that are 'deeper' under the skin and bringing them to the surface. I also find that the COSRX BHA is also less irritating than the AHA. But using both of those products together has helped clear my skin much faster than if I were to use either alone.
This product really helped get rid of my whiteheads but it can cause your skin to go through a purging phase. Keep in mind it can also potentially dry out your skin if you use it too often. I typically use it once or twice a week. It also stings slightly if your skin is irritated.
The Cosrx Whitehead Power Liquid is formulated with 7% Glycolic Acid (AHA) to deep clean clogged pores. This formula sloughs off dead skin cells, leaving you with a healthy, radiant complexion.

How to Use
- This product is recommended for use in the evenings only as it is highly concentrated. It is recommended not to use other AHA, BHA, exfoliating or vitamin C products in conjunction with this product.
- After cleansing, put a small amount of liquid on a cotton pad, and spread over skin - focusing on the troubled areas. Gently tap your fingers over skin to get the liquid fully absorbed.
- If you feel severe stimulation or the purpose is the removal of whitehead and sebum, rinse off after 4 to 5 minutes lightly with lukewarm water.
- If the product is being used as a toner, only use other essences and creams after the whitehead liquid has been fully absorbed into skin. In the morning following your skincare routine, ensure sun screen is used as the final step.
