WTF is Tiger Grass & Why is It Good For Our Skin?

Dr. Jart+ Cicapair Tiger Grass Cream Review

Do you often experience itchiness or redness on your face and you wish it will vanish as soon as possible? Or perhaps you have a dry skin that you wish will be keep moisturized all through the night while you’re asleep? Then scroll down to read the Dr. Jart+ Cicapair Tiger Grass Cream review, this might be the product you need.

But first, what exactly is a Tiger Grass?

Tiger Grass is actually Centella Asiatica, a plant native to the wetlands in Asia which helps calm and repair skin. It got its cool name “tiger grass” from actual tigers. Those native tigers literally roll around in this specific grass to help heal their wounds and skin injuries. Hence, Tiger Grass, and the reason why my Persian tabby is on the photo. Doesn’t he look like baby Simba?

Dr. Jart+ Cicapair Tiger Grass Cream quickly soothes my irritated skin and redness. It also reduces the inflammation of blemishes, even helping them heal faster.
Calms the skin irritation and redness.
Reduce the inflammation of blemishes.
Keeps your skin hydrated throughout the night.
You can also use this to soothe insect bites.
This is a really thick cream. It's too much for those with oily skin.
It also doesn't go well under the makeup.

NOTE: Dr. Jart+ recently revamped this product. They said it has now more Tiger Grass so the healing ingredient is much powerful. They also improved the packaging so it’s easy to squeeze out the product.

APPLICATION: As the last step of your skincare routine, apply a moderate amount onto irritated skin. Press cream in with warmth hands to allow for maximum absorption.

SCENT: It smells like herb. It kinda resembles those Asian pain-reliever ointments but milder, more soothing on the nose.

PACKAGING: It is packaged in a tube, like some toothpaste, which I really like because it’s more hygienic. It also comes with this key-like object which you can put the tube to help you squeeze out everything inside it. Lastly, this is packaged nicely in a beautifully designed box that resembles the Dr. Jart+ Cicapair Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment SPF 30. [NOTE: The Cicapair Tiger Grass Cream revamp has better packaging. Easy to squeeze out the product.]


This is one of the thickest creams I ever tried. I think this is even thicker than Madeca Derma Cream. But surprisingly, it doesn’t feel greasy on my skin, but it does feel tacky. That, or it’s because I apply it thinly as much as possible. It also has a slight tint of green color but it doesn’t show on the skin, but I think it helps with the brightening effect.


I have oily skin, so naturally, I will hate products as thick as this Dr. Jart+ Cicapair Tiger Grass Cream. But I ended up loving this product! I wasn’t actually planning to use this, I thought of giving this to someone else to review for this blog. But I heard it’s really good on soothing sensitive and vanishing redness.

And so one night my skin was really itchy and red, I decided to try it. I was surprised how it can quickly it made my skin look and feel less irritated, red. Plus, it reduces the inflammation of blemishes, even helping them heal faster!

I heard from another avid user of this Dr. Jart+ Cicapair Tiger Grass Cream that she uses this to soothe ants and mosquito bites. And yes, I did try it and it works too! Dr. Jart doesn’t advertise it as such, but I find this a good multi-use product for sensitive skin.

The only thing I didn’t like, besides the thick formula, is that it’s quite tacky. You can’t use this under your makeup like some primer because your foundation or BB cream will surely be hard to blend and it will also crease.

My skin a week of using the Dr. Jart+ Cicapair Tiger Grass Cream. It doesn’t contain silicones but it makes the skin look smoother, fast!
