Cicapair Cream Review
I was introduced to this product on one of those random snapchat articles. Normally I don’t even bother reading them but I think bordem had struck and I found myself clicking through. One article in particular caught my eye as it said something like, thanks to this cream I no longer wear foundation. As an avid hater of foundations I thought this could be the one product that would break us apart. I’m gullible, I know! The post was all about the Cicapair Cream from Dr Jart +. It explained all the science behind it and I found it so interesting that I was desperate to try it for myself.
Dr Jart + is a brand I had heard of before. Tati Westbrook seems to enjoy lots of their products. If it’s good enough for Tati it’s good enough for me! The company is a Korean brand that have become incredibly popular in the west now. Clearly us lot can’t get enough of K beauty. But then again there is a reason behind it all. The article explained that this cream is in fact Tiger grass cream. No not that red ointment you would slather on yourself but actually a green mud. When tigers had been injured they would go and roll around in this mud and their cuts would be gone. And thus here we are.
The tiger grass cream claims to reduce redness and inflammation of the skin. A big must for any acne sufferers. The cream is green in the tub and once blended onto the skin matches the shade of your skin. It really is clever stuff. To be honest it does bare a small resemblance to a foundation but is much lighter and although has fairly good coverage it’s nothing to write home about. The thing that I love about this cream over a foundation is that once you wash you face it’s like it is still there. A foundation merely sits on top of the skin but this cream really sinks in and even when you remove the rest of your makeup, your skin still looks nice and plump and hydrated. I have really enjoyed this product and although it is a little pricey it is nice.
Most people would get away with just putting a little of this on and leaving it at that. However if you are like me and a little more concerned about your skin a few swipes of concealer would probably do the job. The product really does help you break up with foundation. It has helped me be more comfortable in my skin and rely less heavily on caking on makeup. At first breaking up with foundation was a big step and a little scary but I do feel better.
