It has been so long since I reviewed a skincare product. I feel ashamed because skincare bears an important role in my life but I always prioritize makeup review because it is more fun. I always take care of my skin even though I am a lazy AF person. Enough rambling, so in this post I wanted to review the famous COSRX Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser. I bought it 4 months ago and have been using it every morning. For a big size cleanser (150 ml), it is quiet affordable. It costs around IDR 110.000. It hasn’t officially been available in Indonesia, but you can buy it online. Wanna know what I though about this cleanser? Just go on read the review.
One word. Simple. Just look at the packaging. It seems like the company just decided to put a bright-colored post-it in the big white bottle. It looks catchy though. It is also efficient, but it is not travel-friendly. I think the packaging is too big to put in my toiletries bag. It is totally not TSA-friendly. Cosrx doesn’t provide small size either. So, If you wanna travel with it, you have to put them in a small bottle. What I like most about it is that it contains a lot of products. Since I use only a dime size product, it lasts a very good long time. Also, because it is a squeezy tube, I can control how much product I want to use.
This cleanser is transparent gel type facial wash. It doesn’t give sudsy bubbles, but I still can use it with my Foreo Luna. The chemical scent of the cleanser, for me, is too strong. However, my sister likes it. She said that it smells like any other tea tree facial wash. That makes sense because this cleanser also contains tea tree oil. But, I still can bear it because the scent doesn’t linger.

I use this every morning for the past 4 months. I use another cleanser for night, but you can still use it even tough the name is Good Morning Cleanser. I love how gentle it is. It cleans my face without stripping my skin. I hate when my cleanser make my skin very tight and thirsty afterward. Even when I don’t put moisturizer immediately, my face doesn’t feel tight. I’m also really glad that it doesn’t break me out. On the plus side, it makes my skin glow and bright. Just beware that you have to avoid your eyes because it stings.
I recommend this cleanser because it is affordable and very gentle to skin. I rate this product 4 out of 5, just because Cosrx doesn’t provide a smaller size that is travel-friendly. Will I repurchase? Yes.
