If it feels like all we do is rave about COSRX, it’s because the K-beauty brand won’t stop giving us new things to be excited about. Case in point: their latest line of acne-busters meant to work seamlessly together.
The AC Collection features a foam cleanser, a soothing toner, an intensive essence, a spot cream, and a set of pimple patches. Given the brand’s impressive track record when it comes to anti-acne routines, we have high hopes for what these fresh drops can do for our skin. Details on the five, below!


First up, we’ve got a new cleanser to wash off the day’s grit and grime with. The AC Collection Calming Foam Cleanser (coming soon to BeautyMNL) is an updated version of the customer-loved Salicylic Acid Daily Cleanser, with extra soothing, non-stripping ingredients to minimize irritation. The cleanser is meant to get rid of deep-seated dirt, oil, and to combat breakouts, without drying out your skin. If you’ve got oily skin and active pimples you want to target ASAP, consider making this your new daily go-to.
Next, we’ve got a pair of calming liquids you can alternate in your routine. The AC Collection Calming Liquid Mild (P1,299) acts like a gentle, alcohol-free toner that removes acne-causing excess sebum with a blend of green tea and Centella extract. Like other toners with mild formulas, this one treats skin issues while keeping your moisture barrier in tact.
Meanwhile, the AC Collection Calming Liquid Intensive (P1,299) is a fast-action liquid that functions more like an essence for targeted treatment. Similar to the Natural BHA Skin Returning A-Sol, this one works best against stubborn, cystic acne. For those with dry or combination skin, we recommend using this the way you would use a chemical exfoliant: 1-2 times a week only, to avoid overworking your complexion.
Alternatively, you could also use the intensive liquid as a spot treatment, only applying it over problematic areas. But if you’re on the market for something that does just that, the AC Collection Ultimate Spot Cream (P1,299) fits the bill. It contains tea tree and Centella for healing, zinc oxide and calamine for reducing dark spots, and aloe leaf water for hydration. Translation: no more post-pimple dryness or flaking!
Rounding out the assortment is a brand new version of COSRX’s signature pimple patches. The hydrocolloid AC Collection Acne Patches (P320) work just the same, except they come in 3 different sizes and are oval-shaped to potentially stick better to your face. Pop these over a breakout and wake up with clear, gunk-free skin like you’d get with the OG.
