My Holy Grail Chemical Exfoliator

From the past 4 years, I’ve been skipping physical exfoliators like scrubs because I felt that it does nothing for my skin. I was introduced to this exfoliator when I’m was getting into K-beauty skincare and I’ve read so many good reviews on this whitehead power liquid that it made me want to try it for myself.

Cosrx Aha 7 Whitehead Power Liquid Review


Formulated with 7% Glycolic Acid(AHA), AHA 7 Whitehead Power Liquid gently exfoliates skin and helps to reveal radiant even-toned complexion. AHA 7 Whitehead Power Liquid includes Pyrus Malus (Apple) Fruit Water containing natural AHA and Glycolic Acid(AHA) that gently exfoliates and moisturizes skin. Other properties contained in this liquid are vitamins, and natural moisturizing ingredients that can refine without overstimulating the skin. Using this helps to improve the appearance of skin, making to look healthier with more vitality. It is gentle enough on irritation prone and sensitive skin.


After cleansing, soak a cotton pad and swipe a thin layer of the liquid along the skin, avoiding the eyes and mouth area. For daytime uses, follow up with a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or greater.

Packaging :

It is packaged in a very sturdy pump plastic bottle that almost feels like a glass bottle and the box has the same minimalist design as the bottle. I love it!

Key Ingredient :

Pyrus Malus (Apple) Fruit Water – An alpha hydroxy acid (AHA), naturally occurring in sugar cane and malic acid, derived from apples, which will help to exfoliate dead skin cells, reduce the appearance of fine lines, sun damage and hyper pigmentation, diminish the appearance of large pores and acne scarring.

Butylene Glycol, Glycolic Acid 7%, Water, Niacinamide, Sodium Hydroxide, 1,2-Hexanediol, Panthenol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Xanthan Gum, Ethyl Hexanediol

Scent :

This product is unscented, however, if you dispense too much on your palm or cotton pad you’ll notice it has a mild scent of something but I have no clue what it smells like. But sometimes its not noticeable so if you are not into scented skin care products, this one is for you.

Texture :

The texture is a little viscous but it is easy to spread and it is not sticky. It has a thin consistency, a slippy, clear liquid which is easy to apply with a cotton pad.

My Verdict :

This is the only chemical exfoliator that I use and this is my 3rd bottle so far. I love this because it really helps me a lot in dealing with my closed comedones, whiteheads, my large pores, acne scars and dullness. I use it 3 times a week right after cleansing my face at night. I will wait for about 20-30 minutes after application before I proceed to my next routine.

I usually gently press the cotton pad on my problematic areas so it will absorbs well into my skin. Sometimes I do feel  the stinging sensation but sometimes I don’t. Most importantly, I never get into a purging phase. Lucky me.

I really love my skin condition when I wake up in the morning. My skin feels so plump and glowing and my pores also became invisible. With consistent usage, I can see my skin becoming better and better.

Please bear in mind that any chemical exfoliators will tend to make your skin photosensitive. So please wear sunscreen of at least SPF 30 and above. Overall, I really love this power liquid even though I have other chemical exfoliators in my stash. I will always go back to this product. I’m on my 3rd bottle now and I will keep repurchasing it until I get bored.

Rate : 5/5

Yup, full ratings from me.
