My Thoughts on Dr.Jart+ Cicapair Cream

I've been a bit confused with the difference of Dr. Jart+ Cicapair Cream and Dr. Jart+ Cicapair Tiger Grass Cream. I thought it was the same cream or probably an upgrade since they claim this cream is the 2nd generation. Honestly, I'm still unsure because most which come out in google is their Tiger Grass Cream which basically should be the same thing right? LOL...

Looking into the full list of ingredients for Dr. Jart's Cicapair Cream, its active ingredients are Centella Asiatica extracts which include Centella Asiatica Leaf Extract, Madecassoside, Asiaticoside, Asiatic Acid and Madecassic Acid. Its hydrating ingredient is Shea Butter which explains the thick creamy texture and this cream also contains Niacinamide as well. However, the top 10 ingredients in the INCI list are mostly emoliants except for this one 'Eryngium Maritimum Callus Culture Filtrate' which I googled is a rare ingredient in skincare that is mostly used in Dr. Jart's Cicapair products. What I roughly found is Eryngium Maritimum is an exclusive marine plant stem cell culture designed to help boost the regeneration of ageing skin. 

Their active ingredients in this cream are listed at the bottom of the INCI list but it does contain quite a number of soothing plant extracts on top. However, there are a few low rated comedogenic ingredients among them is Shea Butter and also Beeswax but both products are very hydrating ingredients.

Overall the INCI list looks okay but, acne-prone skin should really do a patch test as roughly seeing comedogenic ingredients with EO's included in this cream.

Packaging is simple but the feel is expensive. LOL... If you consider the price for Dr Jart products, it ain't cheap but their products are always packed with good quality packaging. Their Cicapair Cream comes in a fully covered plastic tuber with a screw cap and a matte finish. The opening of the tube is quite big and squirting out the cream inside is also easy. Their packaging contains English, Korean and French descriptions.

It's super thick and creamy just like butter. It glides and absorbs well into the skin without creating any cast during application. This dull green creamy cream may feel a bit oily but once fully absorbed into the skin, it creates an instant smoothness and hydration to the skin.

It has a very minimal scent to no scent at all, even though this cream does contains essential oils.

Going through the INCI list is quite scary for me because of my acne-prone skin but I tried it anyway and after a week my skin didn't seem to break out. I don't see much improvement in clearing my pigmentation and acne scars even though this cream contains Niacinamide. However, Dr.Jart+ Cicapair Cream gives a highly satisfying hydrating sensation to my skin. 

Overall Thoughts
I've been a fan of Dr. Jart products especially their sheet masks but their products are quite pricey compared to similar products with the same function. I can't say their products are outstanding but they do work well. My only concern is its price.

My Rate
Rate: 4/5
Repurchase: Probably if it was on sale.
