My review of COSRX Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser

I’ve tried many cleanser up until now. As I have combination skin, it was difficult for me to find the right one for me.. One night I was just scrolling through my feed and saw Cosrx Low ph cleanser and thought to try it on a whim. And now I’m on my 5th bottle.

The Initial Attraction: Simplicity Sells

The COSRX Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser came in a straightforward, minimalistic package, which I love. No fuss. Popped the seal, and I got a whiff of what smelled like tea tree oil. It’s the morning, so that invigorating scent is a plus for me.

Initial Trial: The Patch Test Saga

Before applying anything to my face, I always do a patch test on my forearm. After 24 hours with no signs of irritation, I was ready to dive in.

Day One: Rise and Shine

First thing in the morning, I’m splashing water on my face. A small squeeze of the cleanser into my palm, and it’s already foaming up nicely. Smooth application, no pulling or tugging on the skin, and it rinses away like a dream. My face feels awake but not stripped down.

Week One: Is This Love?

By the end of the week, I’m hooked. There’s something about starting the day with this cleanser. My skin looks brighter, feels smoother, and that stubborn oiliness around my T-zone? It’s as if it never existed.

Routine Change: Adding it to the Night Regimen

I decide to add it to my nighttime routine as well. No issues there—my skin still feels balanced, and it even seems to make my other products absorb better.

Two Weeks In:

Two weeks later, I can say this cleanser and I are in a committed relationship. The mild dryness that usually accompanies new products? Not an issue here. My skin is thriving—hydrated, balanced, and noticeably less oily throughout the day.

Final Verdict: A Staple in My Routine

At this point, it’s clear. The COSRX Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser has secured its place in my skincare lineup. It’s the sort of product that does what it promises without any unnecessary drama, and isn’t that what we all want?


  • Is this cleanser suitable for all skin types?
  • From my experience, I’d say yes. But if you have extremely sensitive skin, always patch test first.
    Does the tea tree scent linger?
  • Not at all. It’s a quick, refreshing moment and then it’s gone.
    How often should you use this cleanser?
  • I’ve found that both morning and night work well for me, but listen to your skin. Start slow and adjust as needed.
    Can it remove makeup?
  • It does a pretty decent job, but I’d still recommend a proper makeup remover for heavy-duty stuff.
    Is it travel-friendly?
  • Absolutely. The sturdy packaging and secure lid mean no nasty spills in your luggage.
