I received the Propolis Collection from COSRX and I wanted you guys to see my first impressions and my swatches, so we can both judge!
Like me, I know many of you like Propolis – I’m a big fan of it due to the texture and the way it sits on my skin. My skin doesn’t look worse after using propolis, so I like it.

In this video, I swatch and provide my first impressions of the Propolis Synergy Toner, Propolis Light Ampoule and the Propolis Light Cream. I discuss the ingredients and the benefits that COSRX promise from using these products. I also give my honest thoughts.
I will say, look out for my full reviews as that is when I can give my full opinion after using these for weeks – months.
COSRX Synergy Propolis Toner: LINK
- Lightweight. Definitely thinner than the Isntree Hyaluronic Acid Toner Plus (Video below)
- Definitely think oily skins and dehydrated skins may enjoy this
- Possibly my favourite product from the set
COSRX Light Propolis Ampoule: LINK
- I don’t think that this is so thick that an ever lighter version had to be released (as I imagine the thinner version is probably the same thickness as the toner).
- Once again, hydrating and not sticky.
COSRX Propolis Light Cream: LINK
- Very surprised by this cream as I really thought it would be thick and heavy on the skin.
- Dupe for the Krave Oat so Simple Cream in terms of the texture
This is an OG toner – it has since been upgraded since my review. I am planning to try that one. It seems that only a few ingredients have been removed.

K-Beauty Toner Comparison Video:
I mentioned the thickness of these toners in comparison with the propolis toner in the video. You can see here the difference in thickness I was talking about. The Isntree is thick!
COSRX Cica Collection:
I swatched and reviewed the Cica Collection in addition to the Propolis collection, so I linked the video here if you wanted to see. I have reviewed the Toner HERE
My Skin Type: I am acne prone and have slightly dehydrated combo skin. My skin is usually tight where the cheeks and eye area is and the outer parts of my face. My T zone is oily. My skin isn’t a fan of thick/heavy formulas so I opt for lightweight formulas to prevent it from clogging up. My skin doesn’t like essential oils either and I try to avoid fragrance when I can.
