[REVIEW] Dr. Jart+ Cicapair Tiger Grass Cream and Ceramidin Cream

IMG_8631

Ever since I’ve into skin care, every Korean vlogger that have dry skin will always, always recommend either Dr Jart+ Ceramidin Cream or Belif The True Cream Moisturizing Bomb. Both are pricey, hence the reason why I haven’t review them until now. I even had to repurchase the Ceramidin Cream in travel size out of curiosity because I’m afraid that it wouldn’t work out well for me if I purchased the full size, lol. Coincidently, the place where I purchased this cream also sold the Cicapair Cream in set together with the Ceramidin Cream. Since the Cicapair Cream is such a hype in local beauty scene lately, I’ve decided to purchase it as well, it wouldn’t hurt to try them both in travel size, eh?

It’s formulated with resurrection plant, houttuynia cordata, and yarrow to enhance the skin’s viability and help support strong skin. It’s infused with minerals, including sodium, potassium, calcium, and magnesium to help improve skin moisture levels and restore fatigued skin for a healthy appearance.

What else you need to know:
Cicapair™ Collection is inspired by the true legend of Asian Tigers, rolling in Centella Asiatica to heal their battle wounds. Also known as tiger grass, its medicinal use has been recognized for centuries. For generations, this active ingredient has also been recognized as a recovery system to help support wounded skin exhibiting inflammation, redness, or blemishes.

This product is free from 10 harmful ingredients such as artificial fragrance or color, denatured alcohol, triethanolamine, sulfate-based surfactants, triclosan, mineral oil, propylene glycol, and DEA that causes skin irritation.

Dr. Jart+ Ceramidin Cream

Now supercharged with 5-Cera complex, this deeply moisturizing cream is even more effective at visibly strengthening skin and preventing dryness in harsh climates. It also improves the condition of an irritated skin barrier caused by environmental aggressors. This cream is for normal, dry, and very dry skin experiencing dryness, itchiness, roughness, and discomfort.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
– Parabens
– Sulfates
– Phthalates

What else you need to know:
Ceramides are our skin’s natural protection barrier. They are composed of intercellular lipids that act as skin’s defense against environmental aggressors and maintain moisture levels. Think of your skin as a brick wall: when it is first built, it is strong and sturdy. Over time, it needs fortification to remain strong. As we age, we lose ceramides, leading to a decrease in elasticity and moisture.

They are packaged similarly, though the name is different, but really, what makes them different? The Dr. Jart+ Ceramidin Cream is more like the basic cream from Dr. Jart. But more like, high quality basic cream. It never promises you superficial and gimmicky result, but it delivers its promise: deeply moisturized your skin, preventing dryness from harsh climates, and improves your skin barrier.

I am quite understand why people with dry skin keep raving about this product, this product would give you enough occlusive and not really heavy for your skin, absorbs well, and really help to deeply moisturized your skin. But honestly, I think this formulation would also work well with oily and normal skin types as it is not really heavy. Perhaps not for the day time, but it would make a perfect evening cream for any skin types.

As for the Cicapair, I didn’t expect that it would smells like the real Tiger Balm, lol. It feels like putting Tiger Balm into your face, lolll. 😆 Well, honestly, perhaps because my current skin condition is not troubled anymore *knocks on wood* but I don’t see much differences in terms of results from this Cicapair and Ceramidin. They both give me the same moisturizing result with the right amount of occlusiveness.

Nevertheless, considering that a lot of people that raves this products have acne-prone skin, maybe it would greatly help people with troubled skin. I’ve seen people keep repurchasing it again and again, so maybe for them, it’s that good.

Well, as for me, I prefer to use the Ceramidin one since it doesn’t have any scent and the result is good enough for me. However, I personally think that there are a lot of cheaper creams that would work just fine on my skin, and this Dr. Jart+ creams do cost a lot, so maybe, for now, I wouldn’t repurchase it in full size. Doesn’t mean that it’s not good, it’s just, I think there are cheaper options for me that would work just fine.

Will I recommend it to anyone? Well, if you have easily sensitized and acne prone skin, I recommend you to try the Cicapair one, and if you have massive dryness in your skin, or just looking for a high-quality basic cream, Ceramidin cream would definitely work well for you.
