Although I've been battling with quite a few spots since the summer, my main skin concern always remains redness. I have a tendency to go quite red throughout the day, mostly through the center of my face. Mix that with my nose's inability to hold onto makeup for a full day and I've got "Rudolph" comments galore. Dr. Jart+ first debuted their Cicapair cream and color corrector a few months ago as redness solutions, and now they've added a few more products to the collection. I was lucky enough to be sent three of the products, and I was loving them so much I went out and bought the one missing product (the aforementioned cream) for a full review of the line.
The idea behind the Cicapair line is that it's formulated with Tiger Grass, or Centella Asiatica, a plant that has been recognized for its healing properties for centuries. The line was inspired by the legend of tigers rolling around in the tiger grass to help heal their battle wounds. It is known to help inflammation, redness, and blemishes. In addition to the Tiger Grass, these products also contain an Herb Complex made up of Houttuynia Cordata and Yarrow to support the skin's barrier as well as their Minerals Solution Botanic Complex (Sodium, Potassium, Calcium, Magnesium, and Osmopur) to soothe skin and restore moisture levels.
Cicapair Tiger Grass Cream | One of the original products in the line, I tried a sample of this back when it was released in the spring and was immediately hooked on its healing properties. I'm almost always battling some kind of allergic reaction to lip balms, and at the time this totally healed it. Fast forward to now when I've finally bought myself a full tube. I've been slathering this on every night to soothe my super irritated, dry skin (winter is coming). It's a thick, almost balmy texture that feels quite medicinal on the skin. Despite feeling so thick out of the tube it doesn't feel heavy on the skin or break me out. I've noticed this keeps my skin much more hydrated throughout the night, and I wake up with less redness.
Cicapair Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment SPF 30* | This was the other original product from the line. It starts out green and transforms to a beige color as you rub it into your skin. It isn't moisturizing enough to use on its own - I use it over my moisturizer in the morning. It not only cancels out redness and covers up blemishes, but it also forms an effective barrier throughout the day - the description on Sephora mentions it protecting your skin from dust specifically, and as someone who works in a cement lab where there's nothing but dust day after day (seriously it's The Grapes of Wrath up in here), that claim is 100% true. I used to be washing so much dust and dirt off my face at the end of the day, but now I'm just washing off this product. It makes my skin look so nice throughout the day and has a nice satin finish - it isn't greasy at all. My sister, who has oily skin, also loves it. She sets hers with a little bit of powder, and she says she gets the perfect amount of dewiness after about three hours, and her oiliness doesn't progress from there. She's the biggest foundation junkie I know, and she hasn't worn anything since she's bought this.
Cicapair Tiger Grass Re.Pair Serum* | This might just be my favorite from the collection. Housed in the best bottle for a serum ever (a button pops up as you unscrew the top, automatically filling the dropper with the perfect amount of product for you), this serum has wowed me from first use. Like the rest of the line, it also uses the centella asiatica to soothe and heal redness and inflamed skin. And it might just be the most effective of all of them. I've been experiencing a few breakouts here and there for a few months - nothing out of control, but they were all under-the-skin spots that would last months and months. When I first received the Cicapair Serum, I added it into my current skincare routine (I mixed it in with my usual serums), and the spots I had disappeared in two days. I was blown away. Like the other products in the line, This has also greatly helped with my redness. It's so easy to use day or night, as it's just a lightweight, hydrating serum, so I'm already almost halfway through the bottle! I'll be repurchasing for sure.
Cicapair Tiger Grass Nightly Re.Pair Mask* | I just recently mentioned this in my Winter Masks post. This feels quite similar to the cream, but with a little bit more of a balm consistency. It feels quite thick at first, but it smooths over the skin effortlessly and sinks in over the course of the night. It does feel a little tacky at first, but I just give it a good half hour before I go to bed, and I don't have any issues sticking to my pillows or anything. I like that I can still feel it on my skin in the morning because I know my skin hasn't dried out overnight. I also think it's genius to package it in individual packets - not only will they be perfect for traveling, but they also each contain the perfect amount of mask for one use. I tend to be a bit stingy with masks, but when it's like this I know I'm using the correct amount to get the maximum benefits. I can't believe how plump and fresh my skin feels the morning after using this. I'm tempted to use it every single night, but I'm trying to stretch it a bit.
Have you tried any of the Dr. Jart+ Cicapair line?
