Is Cicapair Medium Skintone Friendly?!
Hello pretties! Was really interested to try this trending face base.. but what held me back from getting it for so long is that most reviews i saw was that it wasn’t suited for medium to dark skintones. Was really bummed because i wanted to experience the glow it infamously imparts. Sooo i wanted to try it despite some bad reviews, besides, ymmv (your mileage may vary)! And booi.. was so glad i did try it! Found my new favorite no-makeup-look face base! I definitely see why this was trending. I love the glow, and the evenness it imparted on my acne-prone and dull medium tone face. And It also has spf44 yay! Some helpful tips based on experience though: 👒 a little goes a long way! Just start with a thin layer and take it from there if you want more coverage.. 👒 it helps to rub it well (albeit gently) into your skin to release the tone adjusting pigment and help to spread it evenly and avoid the gray cast 👒 if you’re oily skin like me, the camo drops is more suitable than the tone correcting treatment (the one on the jar) because it is less oily and thinner in consistency. 👒 it helps to complement with your trusty concealer for those areas that you want more coverage because the camo drops has little or no coverage at all. It’s just meant to brighten the skin tone reduce redness. I love that it also has the miracle “cica” ingredient because i love that stuff sooo much! It’s very effective on my improving my acne and blemish-prone skin.😍 Dr. Jart+ - Cicapair Tiger Grass Camo Drops SPF 44

Are Dr Jart Tiger Drops as good as people say?
When it comes to tackling redness, Dr. Jart’s Cicapair Line has become everyone’s go-to. I decided to try the brand’s Tiger Grass Camo Drops SPF 44, which doubles as a serum and color corrector to “soothe the look of redness and turns on skin's glow,” according to Dr. Jart. More about the product: Dr. Jart's ultra-lightweight revitalizing serum uses advanced technology with centella asiatica extract to help soothe the look of irritated skin that has been sensitized by makeup application and external stressors. An antioxidant green-energy complex, including chlorophyll, nurtures skin and protects from environmental damage with SPF 44. What’s inside: - Centella Asiatica Complex: Comforts and supports sensitized skin. - Herbs Complex and Minerals Solution: Strengthen skin and relieve stresses. - Green Energy Complex: Energizes and supports fatigued skin. My review: I’m someone that suffers from mild rosacea and has always been redness-prone. I must admit, I was expecting this product to completely erase all signs of redness from my T-zone, but that’s not the case here. It’s more-so a product to neutralize and tone down redness. So while it may help you achieve a more even complexion, it won’t erase your redness/unevenness. Texture wise, it’s a lovely lightweight serum and it blends so nicely into the skin, giving it a soft matte finish while still allowing your skin’s natural dewiness and texture to shine through. It also works well with makeup, and if you’re looking for more coverage, I recommend adding a little dab of concealer or foundation to the areas that you want to even out. Disappointment aside, I really like this for a color corrector and have been using it on no makeup days for some SPF and to tone down my T-zone. Has anyone else tried Dr. Jart’s Tiger Grass Camo Drops? I’d love to hear your thoughts/tips!
Dr Jart+ Cicapair Tiger Grass Camo Drops
If you are looking to neutralize red skin, you should try the Cicapair Tiger Grass Camo Drops. I use this as a makeup base after I apply my moisturizer - it’s very lightweight. It’s amazing how the drops instantly neutralize redness, and give your skin a glow. I also think my face looks looks less tired with this product. How it works: The serum and color corrector hybrid relieves redness upon contact and also camouflages its appearance at the same time. Its water-like formula gets its green hue from ingredients like centella asiatica and chlorophyll. But don't worry, it turns to beige as it makes contact with skin to neutralize and revitalize, so your complexion looks more even-toned and glowier too.
Today’s minimal lewk ✨ Just tried Dr. Jart+ Cicapair Re-Cover yesterday for the first time and damn, color me impressed! Although this doesn’t completely cover up all of the dark spots I have; it does help with redness tremendously! I foresee this being a huge part of my morning routines in the future!
Love/Hate a Relationship with Medical Grade
My love/hate relationship with medical-grade products! 👀 💗 Do you know when you find the ultimate skincare product that could solve all of your skin's issues? Well, it's product was that promise to me, until it wasn't. I don't want to turn this into a bashing of this lovely product, because overall this is a fantastic medical-grade skincare brand that I adore. However, despite many reviews advising against the product due to its smell, the research behind the ingredients hooked me, so I ordered it. Patiently, I waited for the product to arrive -- almost counting the days. Finally, I was going to put my skincare worries in the past and move back again to beautiful, clear skin. Then, it happened. I cheerfully pumped one dollop-size onto my hands as I was going through my skincare routine, and there it was, the thing some reviewers warmed me from -- the scent. 😩 Many medical-grade products don't have the lovely scents your OTC products have. But, this one, in particular, had this pool chlorine smell that was almost nauseating. 🤢 For a moment, I decided to power through the scent, hoping it will fade away -- it didn't. However, in the name of clear skin and my love for skincare, I was determined to make this product work. 🤜 For about a week, I religiously applied this product every night, holding my breath while doing so, and following up with an intense scented moisturized to mask the scent from the serum. 🤪 Everything else, the texture, the color, the bottle, the pump was perfect -- but the pool chemical scent was enough to kill me. Then, it hit me. Is it worth it to hold my breath while applying a serum? NO! My skincare routine is my "me time," the way I unwind after a long and stressful day; it's my form of night meditation. I struggled with the fact of returning a product that could potentially save my skin, but in the end, my routine and my pampering won. So, I returned it. Maybe I'll have a better look at the OTC version of this serum. In the meantime, I'll keep my fingers crossed for a revised formula with a better scent. Have you ever loved/hated a product?

Osmosis Beauty-Rescue - Epidermal Repair Serum
A Solution For Redness?
The Dr. Jart Cicapair Tiger Grass Serum is a daily serum that helps with redness and skin sensitivity. This serum claims to strengthen, soothe and repair the skin and can even help to resolve dryness. The consistency is thicker than a lot of serums I am familiar with, and it has a really silky feel to it while applying it to the skin, this does absorb nicely, and only leaves behind a very smooth feeling without any stick. I was using this consistently for a month and did notice a reduction in my redness, which is initially why I wanted to try this product. I also noticed a type of rash that was forming from around my lower cheek area. This was the only new product I had tried, and believe that the lavender oil in this contributed to my rash type breakout. I really liked the reduced redness and it did provide a great amount of hydration, so I was sad to find out that this was causing an issue with my skin. I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone since I had a bad experience myself, but I hear that this does work for a lot of people, so just being cautious of the lavender oil is something I would say to someone who may be thinking about using this. To me, this is not worth the time, effort, or price. I would give this product 2/5 ⭐️
I'm pretty lucky that it's rare for my skin to appear dry, but when things are looking congested or I'm having a bout of sensitive skin and redness... often the best way is to calm my skin down and give it a 'cool splash of water'. drunkelephant B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum is not something that will give you literal chills, but the description is quite true as it feels cooling and quenches the skin's thirst. This light and weightless gel absorbs easily into skin without ever leaving it greasy. If anything at all it almost dries down to a matte finish. Reason for this? It contains no silicons! The thirst-quenching properties come from the trio of Panthenol, Sodium PCA and Sodium Hyaluronate Crosspolymer that promotes enhanced hydration at deeper layers of the skin. They also function to support and promote a stronger skin-barrier. This product acts as antioxidant as well because the formula has Watermelon, Lentil and Apple fruit extracts. While, Pineapple and Berberis Vulgaris Root Extracts doubles down on the skin-soothing properties. I use two pumps every morning before SPF and night before moisturizer. It can work on its own, but I feel like it's better when exposed to other products. On it’s own I find Vitamin C products can be too tacky and tough to nail when it comes to texture, but when it’s mixed in with B-Hydra it’s barely noticeable and I feel like I’m getting everything I need from hydration to protection. It immediately feels really soothing and hydrating on the skin without the emollient feel of richer moisturizers. What I love about it is that it doesn’t have any waxes, butters, heavy oils, or anything occlusive, so it won’t clog my pores. Instead, I guess this product can possibly speed up the healing of inflamed breakouts as it lets my skin “breathe” and gets back into a calm state. Any burning, itching and redness that my skin experienced also begins to fade after every use. The result is soft, balanced and plumped skin.
Probiotic skincare is the future💫
If you've heard that pre/probiotics are good for your gut, it's absolutely true. But it's also true that they are good for your skin. ⭐️ Our skin's surface is an ecosystem of microscopic organisms that are working to protect it and keep it healthy. The microbiome is the topmost layer of the skin that contains good bacteria, which protect it from damage, the same way good bacteria works in our gut. ⭐️ A balanced microbiome is healthy skin, meaning it's able to defend itself from outside aggressions (pollution, sun damage), internal aggressions (hormones, stress) and repair itself correctly. While we cannot see these internal aggressions happen, they affect the growth of healthy skin cells and protective compounds like elastin, ceramides, and more. ⭐️ As skincare fanatics, we can tend to go heavy-handed on the acids and retinols, which when incorporated gradually, are excellent for skin regeneration. But we've all heard of the skin barrier and how it can be damaged with over-exfoliation. Part of our skin barrier includes the microbiome, which is why it is important to keep it healthy and thriving. ⭐️ In addition to my internal supplements, I have incorporated a variety of pre/probiotic products my skincare routine and I absolutely believe it has improved my skin tenfold. One of my most recent purchases is this Energy Skin Tint from BeautyTech Cosmetics. They create beautiful serums filled with pre & probiotics to feed your skin's flora helping it return to health so it can function properly. Beautytech - Skin Energy Tint Beautytech - Skin Energy Tint ⭐️ A little more edu about pre/probiotics from BeautyTech Cosmetics: 💫Pre-biotics: A food source for the bacteria, like a green powerhouse smoothie to recalibrate the skin flora and preserve the diversity and heterogeneity of your unique microbiome. These natural pre-biotics nourish your probiotics to form a robust biome and barrier that keep your skin hydrated and resilient, and less likely to redden, sting, burn and flake. 💫These now fully fed probiotics maximize the benefits of good bacteria by strengthening the skin’s natural defences for optimal hydration, reduced inflammation and redness, improved appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and fewer breakouts. As our probiotics break down on your skin’s surface they create brilliant new ingredients for the skin, such as hyaluronic acid, peptides, and vitamins, as well as increasing the presence of ceramides. 🤍 I think probiotics are completely undervalued in the skincare community. If you're interested some other skincare brands that are gettin down with the good bacteria: Mother Dirt Gallinée Algenist Korres Biossance Saturday Skin Tula ⬇️Have you tried any products with pre/probiotics?
