Dr. Jart+ Cicapair Tiger Grass Camo Drops vs. Color Correcting Treatment

Back in November, Dr. Jart+ sent me a few products from the Cicapair line, including their Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment. It was instant love, and since then, I've been using it almost every morning. Recently they've come out with the Tiger Grass Camo Drops, a color correcting product that's meant to work like the original, but in a more lightweight form.

The Camo Drops are an innovative hybrid mixing one part soothing serum and one part color corrector. Like the original Color Correcting Treatment, it starts as a pale milky green shade and transforms to a beige color as you rub it in. It instantly helps to even out skintone and correct redness, and it delivers a hit of soothing moisture as soon as it's applied to the skin.

I know what you're thinking - do you really need both? Probably not, but I know I will use both of them interchangeably in my routine. It all comes down to your preference. The original Color Correcting Treatment has a thicker consistency that really forms a barrier between your skin and the environment. It also has SPF 30. The Camo Drops feel much more lightweight, like nothing on the skin, and they contain no SPF. The original has a more matte (but not drying) finish, while the Camo Drops feel more hydrating and give the skin a bit of a soft, radiant glow. They still completely set down on the skin, though, so I think any skin types that can use the original Color Correcting Treatment can also use the Camo Drops. Because they're more lightweight, I've noticed they give slightly (and I mean really slightly) less color correction than the original. I know I'll continue using the Color Correcting Treatment on days when I don't want to wear much makeup - I like to wear it on its own with a bit of concealer under my eyes, and that's it. I also reach for it on days I anticipate being on the lab bench at work all day because I really feel that the barrier it creates is protecting my skin from all the dust and chemicals I'm working with. The Camo Drops are great for layering underneath other products because they're lightweight, and the color correcting they provide is just enough that I can get away with my favorite sheer foundations on top without needing much or any concealer on top of that. The hydration boost makes it a great primer for makeup as well. 

TL;DR The Camo Drops are a great addition to the Cicapair line, and if you're looking for some color correction, glow, and are in need of some soothing skincare all wrapped up in one, then they're certainly the product for you.

Have you tried the Camo Drops yet?
