Review: Cosrx Triple C Lightning Liquid

As someone who has combination skin, that is prone to breakouts and blackheads, dealing with hyperpigmentation has been an ongoing challenge since puberty. In the beginning of the year, I made a challenge to myself to really focus on this part of my skincare routine. I tried a mandelic acid and my skin was not feeling it at all. Shocking, because so many friends love it, so I had to continue on my journey to find something that would work for me and work well. I was researching different acids, and then one day I was scrolling my Instagram and saw that Cosrx, one of my favorite skincare brands for acne prone skin was collaborating with Charlotte Cho, co-founder of Soko Glam to create a Vitamin C serum that would contain 20.5% ascorbic acid. Not only was the Vitamin C percentage appealing, it also contains 72% of chokeberry which stabilizes the Vitamin C and hydrates the skin. I knew immediately my skin needed this product in my life; so I sat patiently and had a countdown for when it went live.

When I say you NEED this product in your life, this is an understatement. I saw my hyperpigmentation drastically change for the better. My skin’s texture is a lot smoother and even after only 4 months of using this product. I am shocked at how well it has worked for me.  I followed the instructions on how to use the product (sidebar: Don’t use after getting a fresh eyebrow threading. I suffered that sting so you don’t have to.)  and I use this nightly. Every now and then I will use it in the morning but I make sure to keep up my SPF usage throughout the day. As with any product with Vitamin C, you must keep this in your fridge to keep your product fresh.  You can ONLY purchase this product here on Please do not purchase this from eBay or any other unauthorized seller. This product is only made in small batches so buying from another person cannot guarantee what has been put in your product. I will continue to use this product and as my hyperpigmentation continues to clear up I will keep you all updated.

  1. I just ordered this and am excited. Read your review after so was glad to see how happy you are because I couldn’t find anything about it and African-American skin. The reviews on Cho’s site were mostly raves, especially for aging skin, which I have.

  2. Thank you for your post and review!
    You have inspired me to try this product out.
    I never had acne as a kid, but these last couple of years; Adult Acne has taken over! Not to mention I am a picker, so the scarring and hyperpigmentation makes it all so much worse. I have received several chemical peels, some better than others. While I plan on getting at least 2 more peels (they are super pricey) I want to try something daily in the meantime. I hope this product works for me!
