I’ll just jump straight into it: COSRX Centella Blemish Cream is pretty awesome stuff for zits. I mostly get hormonal acne, and when these appear along my jawline or in the middle of my cheek, they’re the furious kind.
This cream works best for me on zits that have been popped (yeah, well…) or are in the healing process—the blemishes practically flatten and lose their redness overnight. A side effect is that this cream is also a bit drying, though I’ll obviously take a dry patch over an angry bump, any day! Still, this means that I only use it as a spot treatment. In any case, it doesn’t really prevent zits for me, so I wouldn’t personally use it as an all-over cream.
It comes with a little plastic spatula, which I don’t find to be all that useful since I never use very much of this at once. One little dip of a clean fingertip gets more than enough for one use.
