NOTE: Dr. Jart+ recently revamped this product and named it Cicapair Re-cover SPF30/PA++ It’s still color correcting, but I heard it has more amount of Tiger Grass.
According to Sephora and Style Korean, this is the best-selling product of Dr. Jart+ and luckily, the brand sent me one last March to try it for myself. But it took me a while to write this Dr. Jart+ Cicapair Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment review because March is the start of the summer season in the Philippines. And this is not a product for that season in a humid tropical country.
Dr. Jart+ Cicapair Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment corrects redness and even brightened the under eyes. It's also a safe sunscreen for acne-prone skin thanks to Tiger Grass that soothes the skin.
I can wear this on its own without foundation because it makes my skin look better.
It's also a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF30.
It has satin finish.
Feels too greasy and thick for oily skin during summer.
WHAT IS IT?
Dr. Jart+ Cicapair Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment is a green-to-beige color-correcting treatment that corrects redness and helps protect skin from environmental aggressors.
It’s the all-in-one treatment that includes a color-changing capsule within the formula to cover blemishes and restore the look of the skin’s strength, health, and vitality. It provides SPF 30 protection from UV light, and it forms a dust barrier to protect the skin from the environment while enhancing the skin’s viability.
The power ingredient in this product is Tiger Grass—aka CentellaAsiatica—which helps calm and repair skin. Based on my personal experience with this ingredient, it can quickly make skin look and feel less irritated, red, and reduce the inflammation of blemishes, even helping them heal faster.
Besides that, it is also infused with sodium, potassium, calcium, and magnesium to help improve the skin’s moisture levels and restore fatigued skin for a healthy appearance. You can check its full ingredients and analysis in Skin Carisma.
APPLICATION: In the morning, after your regular skincare or makeup routine, apply a moderate amount. The cream will change from green-to-beige to correct any redness.
SCENT: It smells like herb and mint, just like those Asian pain-reliever ointments like Katinko, but a little milder.
TEXTURE & FORMULA: It’s creamy but not that heavy. It’s actually easy to blend on the skin. It feels matte on the skin yet your skin will look dewy.
PACKAGING: As expected from Asian beauty brands, this cream comes with a scoop and cute packaging. It is in a glass jar with metal lid, so it’s quite heavy and chunky if you’re going to bring this in your travels.
I love this product! It did correct my redness, all redness is gone, and even brightened the under eyes. At first, I thought it was too pale for my morena skin tone, but let it sit in your skin for a few minutes and it’ll actually look normal on your skin. Well, it’s your skin but better, if you know what I mean. It also feels matte yet my skin looks dewy. I never used a product like this before! The best part, this is also a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF30.
But during the summer season, when it is really hot and humid, this product tends to be really dewy on the skin. I thought I will not be able to use it during those months until I watched Kelsey Merritt’s Harper’s Bazaar nighttime skincare routine where she used a brush to apply her moisturizer. And I thought, maybe I could do that with my Dr. Jart+ Cicapair Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment.
And I did! At first, I tried the flat foundation brush, but it feels too greasy for my liking for summer. So next, I tried it with a beauty blender. And it did make a change on the finished look! It was less dewy, my skin looks brighter because it was less oily, and no longer greasy. I can finally use the product even during summer.
