Re-Covering Skin Wounds Like A Tiger

Centella Asiatica or “Centella” is a perennial plant that is native to Asia. Although “tiger grass” may refer to various plants cultivated in Asia, Centella has been given this name by an Asian legend. The legend tells the story of tigers rolling in the leaves of Centella to heal their wounds. Later, Centella has been used in Asia as a medicine to promote skin regeneration and wound recovery. IMG_9691

Having introduced another line of Dr. Jart here ( Hydrate your skin with Ceramide-3 ), I did not even hesitate to try this new series: Cicapair from Dr. Jart, a beloved Korean brand. Firstly, you know how I am a big supporter of no makeup-makeup. I always avoid wearing foundation except for special occasions, which needs a little bit of courage and usage of right products. If you feel brave enough to go makeup-free like me, you need to know what to substitute foundation with. As such, BB and CC creams spurred the market to meet the demand of women who are sick and tired of covering their skin with layers of concealers and foundations. However, such products usually lack daily protection and treatment that skin would need for a constant degeneration and regeneration cycle. The reason why I bought Cicapair was that Dr. Jart’s Cicapair pledges recovery and covering in simply one cream.IMG_9687

In the special edition I bought there was a 50ml Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment, which has snap color correcting feature, Tiger Grass Cream, and Tiger Grass Re-Pair Serum. I think this edition would be a lucrative deal for those who haven’t tried Cicapair before. Basically, these three products are complimentary meaning that without serum result will presumably be milder. IMG_9688The serum and cream have a very unique fragrance that comes from natural plant extracts. Besides, their refreshing feeling leaves a little bit of tingling under my skin which I liked a lot. Color Correcting Treatment has a soft green color which disappears when applied on the skin and turns into a BB cream-like color. Also, the treatment is enriched by SPF30/PA++. Here I listed yeays and nays of the Cicapair:

Pros:

  • Lightweight
  • Refreshing
  • Regenerative
  • Conceals discoloration
  • Substitutes foundation

Cons:

  • May not be suitable for acne-prone skin types
  • Superficial blending leaves a weathish color on the skin
