You’ve probably come across Cocokind on social media, or perhaps you’ve seen the products at Target, Ulta, or Whole Foods. The brand has gained popularity in recent years, thanks to the fact that everything from its packaging to the product formulas and ingredients is earth-friendly and sustainable—and it’s all under $25.
Before we get into the Cocokind reviews (which includes some of their best-selling products, like the rosewater facial toner, mymatcha moisture stick, facial cleansing oil, chlorophyll mask, turmeric stick, mai light rosé highlighter) here’s a bit more information on the brand.
The Backstory of Cocokind:
After struggling to find effective solutions for her hormonal acne, entrepreneur Priscilla Tsai decided to take matters into her own hands by starting her brand Cocokind.
The former investment banker-turned-CEO found prescription treatments ineffective—and she also noticed that they caused increased skin sensitivities and digestive issues. She was determined to find a holistic and natural approach to treat her skin.
Tsai began experimenting out of her own home using food-based natural ingredients. Her at-home skincare recipes transformed her skin and she felt confident that she was onto something, so she decided to quit her full-time job. And thus, Cocokind was born in 2014.
Tsai created the brand because as a consumer, she saw there was a clear need in the market for clean and high-quality skincare products at an affordable price. Cocokind products are free from toxins, sulfates, fillers, paragons and many other harmful ingredients and only sourced with high-quality and effective ingredients.
As we previously mentioned, all products are under $25, and after testing some for myself I can attest that they are just as effective as some of the more pricier alternatives.
Cocokind Reviews: 12 Best-Selling Products
- What It Does: It’s meant to soothe, hydrate, and balance your skin with a single spritz.
- How to Use It: According to the Cocokind website, you’re supposed to “spritz rosewater onto a cotton pad and then swipe all over face or spritz directly onto skin. this toner can also be used to set makeup or refresh skin throughout the day.”
- Rosewater Facial Toner Review: A great multi-use product. The mild scent is refreshing, but subtle and not over-powering or irritating. I love that the toner can be used to remove face masks to give your skin extra hydration. The toner can also be used as a spray to set makeup.

- Facial Cleansing Oil Review: I love oil-based cleansers, especially when my skin feels extra dry. 1-2 pumps is enough to remove an entire days worth of makeup and dirt. I especially like that the product leaves my skin feeling clean and hydrated. I have the Amorepacific cleansing oil, and I think this product is equally as great.

- Use 3-4x per week.
- For added spot-fighting power, apply the turmeric mask stick to blemishes and dark spots and layer the chlorophyll mask on top.
- Chlorophyll Mask Review: This customizable face mask is perfect for all skin-types. The product is a powder form that is meant to be combined with water and other skincare products to create a customizable mask. For only $19, the product is great value and will last you a long time. In full transparency, the powder can be a bit messy and when mixed with just water it has a very strong “grass smell.” The mask left my skin feeling incredibly soft and noticeably brighter. I mixed the product with the rose toner which helped mask the smell. The mask also noticeably reduced the inflammation and appearance of breakouts.
