A Gentle Cleanser: Cosrx Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser Review

How to use: Massage onto dry skin, add a little water to create a lather and then rinse away.

Cosrx Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser

Why low pH? Well the lowdown is that our skin is naturally acidic when it comes to our pH level, cleansers are often more alkaline to help remove the dirt and makeup from the skin. If you’ve ever felt that tight feeling after washing your face, or have found your cleanser irritates your skin it could be due to the cleansers alkalinity.
In short, if you’re easily irritated by cleansers or have dry skin this is definitely a cleanser to try.
My skin isn’t particulary prone to irritation however I really wanted to try out the Cosrx Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser as I’d heard so many good things about it. I currently use it as my morning cleanser (but it can be used morning and night) and am finding it both quick and easy to use and gentle on my skin.

3 Ingredients

Evening Primrose Extract
Evening Primrose oil has been shown to be incredibly effective in soothing dry or itchy skin, helping with things like acne and dry patches.

Tea Tree Oil
A great antibacterial ingredient helping to keep skin clean and clear.
Often used in treatments for blemished or uneven skin, it has a spicy but fresh fragrance.

Saccharomyces Ferment
In skincare, this term usually refers to a type of fermented yeast. These fermented yeasts are found in a lot of popular Korean skincare as they are said to help moisturise, help reduce fine lines and even out skintone.

Cosrx is a brand that has been getting quite a lot of attention lately and rightly so. Their products are really great quality and feature some great ingredients.
I’ve been really enjoying using this cleanser. I usually use a foam based cleanser but can find that sometimes they leave my skin feeling a little tight. The Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser has been leaving my skin feeling clean enough to start the day but also soft and well cared for.
I’ve only been using this as part of my morning cleanse, despite it’s name it can be used both morning and evenings but I personally find that I need something a little more heavy duty to remove the build up of dirt at the end of the day.
It has a subtle herbal fragrance and it’s gel consistency also means it does a good job at removing light makeup and sunscreen products from the skin. If you’re a user of heavy makeup or waterproof products you’ll probably need to use this as part of a double cleanse, removing your makeup first with something else before cleansing your face with the Good Morning Gel Cleanser.


Subtle herbal fragrance with a gentle formula. Great for people with sensitive or dry skin as it has a low pH. Really easy to use when in a rush and it’s gel consistency means that it can remove light makeup and leave the face feeling soft and clean.
