COSRX Balancium B5 D-Panthenol Cream

It’s February! A brand new month, a brand new start. Giving sheet masks a break, I’ll be blogging on a few products that I’ve been trying and some that I have actually used up by now. Here’s what I think of the COSRX Balancium B5 D-Panthenol Cream.

COSRX Balancium B5 D-Panthenol Cream

What I love about this product? I randomly picked this up from TJMaxx as it was on clearance for $5. I figured this is a good product as an introduction to this new-to-me brand. Their website states “Clean moisturizer with intense effect of D-panthenol” and “What it is: Daily multi-functional cream to hydrate & strengthen the barrier of skin.” I do not detect a smell with this really aside from possibly an unscented scent if you know what I mean. Some products claim to be unscented but it actually has a scent that’s just quite light and very close to being unscented. My husband can spot those so to him this does have a scent. Why is my husband mentioned in this post? Cause while I did use it a few times, it ultimately ended up being a face moisturizer for my husband during the cold winter season. He dislikes scents more than I do but find this acceptable to use as it is quite the effective moisturizer for his dry winter skin. Whenever he feels like his face is dry or sees a patch of dry skin on face, he applies a little bit of this and goes on his merry way. As for my short-lived experience, I got this during the end of summer and it wasn’t the right face cream for me to use at the time. It was a bit too moisturizing for summer so this is best as a winter face cream for us. The cream itself isn’t very thick but it’s thicker than a face moisturizer. The consistency is kind of gel-like, which applies very easily on the face.

What I don’t like about this product? While my husband and I got to try this for just $5, a 1.69 fl oz / 50 ml squeeze tube retails for $26. While we like how it fared during the winter, I’m not sure if I’m willing to get this again at full-price.
