[Cosdna Analysis] (notable ingredients = green, potentially irritating ingredients = red)
Description: Cosrx uses very simple packaging, which I like - it looks beautiful and can be easily decorated with Cosrx stickers! The Ultimate Nourishing Rice Overnight Spa Mask is no exception - it has a black metal lid and a white plastic jar with a simple label printed on one side.

My Skin: I have 29 year old, oily, acne prone, dehydrated, sensitive skin. I experience hormonal acne due to PCOS as well as cystic acne. I am currently using a Curology prescription that includes Tretinoin.
Performance: As I mentioned above, this mask is a little thick, but it does spread out easily onto the skin. I use a small pea-sized amount for my whole face, and it spreads thin and feels like it should absorb easily.

Over the 4 days I tested this out my skin developed dry flakey patches and also new cystic acne (which I haven't experienced in weeks) as well as several new whiteheads (most small and easy to drain). My first night not using this mask I woke up to most of my dry patches looking just slightly red and no longer flaky, and my skin does not feel tight anymore.
Verdict: This cream just isn't for me. I know many people have great success with it, even others with oily skin, but something about it makes my skin very upset.
