Thank You, 8th Generation of Beautiful Pioneers!

We successfully wrapped up the 8th generation of Beautiful Pioneers with COSRX and we gotta say, we were so impressed from all the applications and interest! We have never had this many amazing applicants, and it was truly hard to choose our participants. So before we get to the details, we would like to say thank you to all applicants!


Dear 8th generation BPs: The Cupidrop family would like to express our deepest gratitude because thanks to you, our 8th Generation campaign was a huge success.

We distributed Cosrx’s brand new Two in One Poreless Power Liquid to 20 K-Beauty enthusiasts from all over the country. We also threw in a little surprise: Blackhead Remover Mr. RX Kit, another new item that uses 3 easy steps to reveal smoother and clearer pores.

Here is a report on what we got from our Beautiful Pioneers:

Cosrx – Two in One Poreless Power Liquid


A power liquid that gently lifts stubborn blackheads and prevents excess sebum production, which helps your overall complexion look cleaner and more even. Because it contains a small amount of BHA (0.1%), this liquid can be used in conjunction with other AHA & BHA products.


Can be used both morning and night, but use SPF during daytime.


After cleansing, pump product onto clean hands or cotton pad and gently swipe across face, focusing on areas with enlarged pores and avoiding the eye and lip area. Gently pat to aid in absorption. Follow up with moisturizer.


A lot of BPs noted that they were surprised by how hydrating this product was. After consistent use, they noticed that their pores seemed smaller, clearer and more tightened. They also liked the fact that it contains a small amount of BHA, which allows for using this product in conjunction with other chemical exfoliators such as Cosrx Blackhead Power Liquid and AHA7 Whitehead Power Liquid. And for those who have sensitive skin, this product may be great for using it alone.


Here are some interesting thoughts by a few of our reviewers:

Where are my K-beauty lovers at? 🙋🏻‍♂️ I was fortunate to be chosen by @cosrx and @cupidrop.official to test the new Cosrx Two in One Poreless Power Liquid before its release 💦 – 💧 I’ve been using Cosrx ever since the beginning of my skincare journey, and have yet to come across a product that I haven’t loved. The Two in One Poreless Power Liquid is no exception! . – 💧 This Power Liquid uses BHA to clean the pores, and Tannin to tighten them. The BHA concentration is 0.1%, which is great for sensitive skin or people who are new to actives. However, my skin is used to a higher concentration, so I use my Cosrx Natural BHA Skin Returning Emulsion (containing 1% BHA) before applying the Power Liquid. . – 💧 About 20 min. after applying the BHA Emulsion, I put one pump of the Poreless Power Liquid on my hand, and pat it into my nose and cheek areas with my fingers until my skin has absorbed it. It’s a non-runny, lightweight liquid, so it doesn’t take long to pat in. . – 💧 Today’s only my 10th day using it, but I can already see a huge decrease in pore size. The pores on my cheeks and nose have ALWAYS been an issue for me ever since middle school. I’ve found dozens of products that can clean out my pores, but none that will shrink their appearance. After years of nose strips and hundreds of disappointing products, I can honestly say that the Two in One Poreless Power Liquid is the first product I’ve used that actually made a difference in my skin’s pore size. I’ll definitely be repurchasing this when I run out!🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 . – #Skincare #Cosrx #Cupidrop #BHA #2in1 #PorelessPowerLiquid #KoreanSkincre #KoreanBeauty #KBeauty #Exfoliation #BBlogger #Exfoliate #SkincareAddict

Word on the street is that when COSRX dropped this serum in the Philippines it sold out within hours. • • Sorry I’ve been AWOL the last few days—finals have me stressed and tired lol. Anyway this is a review post on the COSRX Poreless Power Liquid from COSRX! I was gifted this lovely serum by my friends at cupidrop. ❤️ My roommates and I tested this serum for 7 days because we all have different skin types and experienced different results. • Personally I have pores the size of North America and very few products have worked to make them smaller. With this product I didn’t really notice a difference on my nose BUT on the pores on my cheeks there is a BIG difference. They’re much smaller 😏 • The serum itself is sort of runny and doesn’t smell like anything really which would make it good for people with sensitive noses. • The bottle is pretty high quality too, I’ve dropped it (along with almost everything I own lol) and it hasn’t broken! It’s the same packaging as all the rest of the COSRX serums. • My roommate Kaitlyn had the most dramatic results among us so I included her before and after pics here. Her acne began to clear up and her redness FOR SURE decreased. Also her pores are smaller (yay it worked!!) Kaitlyn has oily acne prone skin. Her skin looked so much better that people messaged me asking what she started using because there was such a noticeable difference! • Overall we all LOVED this serum and would def repurchase this—Kaitlyn is already ordering it for herself haha. Have you tried this?? • ALSO: There will be a full blog post with the before and after pics of all my roommates coming this Friday!! • • • • • #skincare #beauty #cosrx #cupidrop #koreanskincare #kbeauty #serum

🆕 blog post (link in BIO) review on cosRX Two in One Poreless Power Liquid (courtesy of @cupidrop.official) is live! As part of Cupidrop's 8th generation Beautiful Pioneer, I received the cosRX Two in One Poreless Power Liquid for review purposes and I have finally written a review. Have you tried this yet? Verdict:👌 . . 👩‍💻Blog Recap I think the low percentage of betaine salicylate is actually a selling point for cosRX as they do market it as a toner than can work with other AHA and BHA products you might have in your skincare routine. However, I was pleased that the pH level was low enough to work as a BHA product ~ for me, this means this is a daily use liquid as it does not irritate my skin and it does provide pore care ~ it helps clean out my pores while reducing the appearance of them. That said, this isn’t an oil controlling mattifying product ~ it will help clean out excess sebum, but I didn’t notice that it mattified. If you need a mattifier, you will need to apply one over this product. . . This is a very hydrating product, with a refreshing cooling sensation and it does leave my skin looking clearer, feeling softer and refines my skin texture. I don’t have a lot of blackheads, so I am not sure how this work if your blackheads are really apparent. Can it work on dry skin? I think it can ~ I think anyone who is looking for a hydrating pore care product can use this, due to intense hydrating properties and low irritation benefits. Many thanks to Jenny and Cupidrop for sending me this product . . #cupidrop #cosrx #beautifulpioneer #8thgeneration #2in1 #PorelessPowerLiquid #rasianbeauty #byrdiebeauty #abblogger #scffinder #abbeatthealgorithm #abcommunity #skincare #review #뷰티 #kbeauty #스킨케어 #koreanskincare #kbeautyblogger #skincareblogger #beautygram #skincareaddict #코스매틱 #skincarejunkie #skincareroutine

I’ve seen my pore size decrease in the past week after using this newest product from @cosrx Two in One Poreless Power Liquid. It sold out in the first few hours it launched 😞 but will be back for sale on @cupidrop.official – Its two key ingredients—88% Willow Bark Water and 0.1% BHA — lifts blackheads and prevents excess sebum production, improving the appearance of enlarged and clogged pores (small doses of BHA is safe to use). – How to apply: After cleansing, pump 1-2 times on hands or cotton pad and swipe across face. Focus on areas with enlarged pores (avoid the eye and lip area). I use this before my moisturizer and in place of my normal toner morning & night. – Nose strips and clay masks to get blackheads out of your pores can actually enlarge them even more. Also, best cheap ranunculus from Trader Joe’s for background prop 🌷

[ FIRST IMPRESSIONS ] COSRX Two In One Poreless Power Liquid•
Claims: To improve the appearance of enlarged and clogged pores with 88% Willow Bark Water and 0.1% BHA to gently lifts stubborn blackhead, clean pores and prevent excess sebum. Also contains Tannin that acts as natural astringent to help tighten pores. Tannins are actually plant polyphenols commonly found in the bark of trees, leaves, stems, etc., functioning as their protective agents against bacteria, fungi, and even ultraviolet radiation.
Texture: a little thicker then water, not sticky at all.
Scent: very light minty scent but goes away quickly. . 🌊 
How I use: I used this as a toner. About 2-3 pumps and patted this into my skin.
Thoughts: It’s very soothing and cooling on the skin. The percentage of BHA is low so I used it everyday & It didn’t break me out or irritate my skin (especially since my #pd breakout). It layers nicely and played well with my other skincare products.
Result: I’ve been using this for 10 days the best take away for me is the reduction of my oil 🙌🏾. Especially since it’s about to be hotter, this was a pleasant surprise! My pores appeared smaller. But let’s be clear, these results are not permanent since we can’t change the size of our pore size but only blur the appearance. . 🌊
Overall: Due to the cooling sensation, this will be a great addition to to use in spring/summer. If you’re oily like me you’ll love how it reduces oil! The percentage of BHA is low so if I wanted, I could use with my other acid products. I feel like this is ideal for people who have sensitive skin who want to delve into the world of acids. • 🌊
I was fortunate enough to be selected as @cupidrop.official 8th generation Beautiful Pioneer. Thank you Jenny for giving me the chance to try this product.
