When our makeup starts melting off midday, we usually blame it on the unforgiving tropical heat or our overactive oil glands. But there’s one sneaky culprit that always falls below the radar—and that, girls, is your moisturizer.

Sizzling summer heat and a thick, greasy formula just don’t mix, especially if you have oily skin. What you actually want is a lightweight blend that won’t trigger your oil glands. That’s where the COSRX Oil-Free Moisturizing Lotion comes in!
Needless to stay, this stuff is love at first try. It combines the best of two worlds: the weightless, silky consistency of an emulsion and the moisturizing prowess of a cream.
The cherry on top? This lotion packs 70% birch tree juice, completely replacing water as its base ingredient. FYI, birch tree juice is a natural concoction of skin-loving properties. It’s jam-packed with amino acids, antioxidants, proteins, and vitamins. So by replacing water with this nourishing cocktail, COSRX created a simple formula that works twice as hard. Genius.

Now, the fun part! Since you’ll be reaching for this moisturizer every single day, we’ve made you a quick ‘n’ easy guide to follow. Slather away!


ORDER OF APPLICATION: Use the COSRX Oil-Free Moisturizing Lotion in the morning in place of your regular day cream. It should be applied after your serums and essences and before your sunscreen.

STEP 1: Dispense a centavo-sized amount of product.
STEP 2: Dot it over your forehead, nose, cheeks, and chin.
STEP 3: Using your fingertips, gently spread the product over your face in upward, circular motions.
STEP 4: Once you’ve massaged all the product into your skin, gently pat for maximum absorption.


“This product is so lightweight! It absorbed almost instantly without leaving any sticky residue. My skin actually felt refreshed and hydrated even throughout the day. Best of all, this oil-free lotion sat really well under my makeup. I didn’t feel extra greasy even under the heat.” — Denisse, 23, Oily Skin Type

Like we said, it’s love at first try. This oil-free cream absorbs lightning-fast, sets with a non-greasy finish, and leaves you with plumper, more hydrated skin immediately after use. Because of its featherlight consistency, you can even apply it in the evening before your night cream for an extra layer of moisture. Win-win!
