If there’s anything that took me the longest time to review from skincare products, it’s always actives product, particularly exfoliating product. Why? Because for me personally, judging the apparent result of exfoliating product is pretty hard. Perhaps because I don’t have that much of unclogged pores (Amen to that!), perhaps because I’m still on my middle 20s in age and my skin’s ability to resurface still there (Amen, again!), or maybe because the effect of the product is doing very very slight improvement towards my skin, therefore it’s can’t be seen with the naked eyes.
However, my main reason why I purchased this pretty controversial product in which I noticed some swear by it, and some thinks that it makes their skin broke out horribly; is because I’m curious to try Fiddysnail’s Grits Method and she highly recommend to use this particular COSRX BHA Blackhead Power Liquid as the exfoliant product. I personally really intrigued by this product because one of the blogger that I follow practically hate this product. Therefore, I am really really cautious when I apply this on my skin.

The thing that I noticed with this product is the fact that we only need to apply a small amount to the targeted area. I realized that the blogger that had major brokeout through out her face apply it to her entire face, therefore I’m trying really hard to avoid that mistakes. Furthermore, with Fiddy’s Grits Method, we only need to apply it towards our nose area though, so it wouldn’t be a problem.
The product have this gel like texture, pretty thick, but it’s pretty runny and easily spread to our skin. If I’m going to compare it to another actives, the scent of this product is pretty unnoticeable and not chemical-like like, let’s say The Ordinary Lactic Acid or Sunday Riley Good Genes. It’s colourless and don’t have any artificial fragrance too, which is always a thing that I consider since I have sensitive skin.
So, is it actually working? Since I only use it exclusively for Fiddy’s Grits Method, I will only talk about my experience with that. So, if you read my story not so long time ago regarding the long time blackhead that suddenly popped out a day after I use Fiddy’s Grits Method, I personally think that both Fiddy’s Method and this product is really works. However, if you want to have maximum result, you also need the right cleansing balm and also the right clay mask as well. For me personally, this method works wonderfully when I use it together with Banila Co. Cleansing Balm Original and Innisfree 3 in 1 Jeju Nose Pack (reviews and more about that product later)! Fiddy actually recommend to use Banila Co. Cleansing Balm Original and Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Mask, however, I think you can use any products that suits your skin the best as long as the cleansing balm is mineral oil based (yes, that’s important, Fiddy also highlight that too) and as long as the mask is clay mask.
And yes, this COSRX BHA Blackhead Power Liquid is one of the hero products that made my long time black head finally gone!
The only downside of this product for me is the fact that COSRX give us so much product, with 100ml in a bottle, while I use it very very little, exclusively for Fiddy Grits Method, only in nose area, for only once a week if I’m being diligent (I usually use it once a month, to be honest), and yet they expired within a year. Since I hate to throw away un-emptied product I would be grateful if COSRX sold a smaller bottle of this product. Ideally, the tiny 25ml one if possible. Therefore in the mean times, I think I will only repurchasing it in the form of its sachet samples since there is no way that I could finish this huge 100ml product within 1 year solely for Fiddy Grits Method.
