WHAT IS DR.JART+ ?

 

Well, let's start with what is Dr. Jart? Dr. Jart+ is a Korean skincare founded by Dr. SungJae Jung

In 2001, he was running his own clinic in Seoul, Korea after earning his M.D and becoming a certified dermatologist. He spent each day creating and testing for the safest and most effective skin care formulas for severe skin issues. ventured to bring Dr. Jung's formulas out of the clinic, into the mainstream. Chin Wook worked tirelessly between Dr. Jung's clinic, laboratories, and personal advisors to develop a new skin care company. That's what the profile said, The bottom line product products found by the various leading dermatologist in Korea incorporated in one company that is Dr. Jart +

 

WHAT IS CICAPAIR?

 

Dr. Jart has issued a wide range of skincare range for various skin problems. One of its products is Cicapair. Cicapair is a product of Dr.Jart+ that contains the formula of tiger grass or biological name is Centella Asiatica. Now I sounds pretty smart huh? Lol not so fast. Okay tiger grass has long been used as a treatment in Korea to heal wounds in the body. Knowledge of Benefits of tiger grass is obtained from antiquity in the days of tiger war in Korea often do battle and therefore they often get battle wounds. To heal their wounds battle they roll over the tiger grass and turn it out to work on their heal wounds! The essence of tiger grass is developed through various processes and processed into a product that has

 

This product series from Dr.Jart+ comes in 3 types of products ie there is cicapair serum, Cicapair cream and cicapair color correcting cream. Each has a different function but one formula is tiger grass. From a series of products I am most interested to try color correcting cream and as you know I still use the product from my dermatologist, therefore I choose the most neutral product that is color correcting cream. I’m gonna reveal the ingredients from the products below, I quote some writings from Beautyfindsforme, she is doing a review for the cream ones and there she explains the ingredients contained in the product and what are its functions. I think the cream ones and the color correcting ones have the similar ingredients so u better read it first!

 

 

This is a moisturizing, repair your skin barrier, while reducing sensitivity and blemishes.  It soothes and heals as well, because it contains not only centella asiastica, a plant that is rich in saponins and is an anti-inflammatory, calming your skin and aid in wound healing, but also derivatives of centella asiatica.  Centella extracts will helps minimize the appearance of pores, and since it stimulates collagen production, it will make your skin more supple and firm.  This formula contains five components extracted from centella asiatica ~ asiaticoside helps form collagen to strengthen your skin and speeds up wound  healing.  Asiatic acid is an anti-aging compound, that helps to plump up your skin, prevents wrinkles, fine lines and scar tissue. Madecassic acid helps aid in the production of collagen and tissue while madecassoisise helps soothe, reduce redness and inflammation and helps heal your skin. Centella asiatica meristem cell culture acts not only as a skin conditioner, but as an antioxidant as well so it will help fight free radicals and also help repair the damage they cause, which are fine lines, wrinkles and hyper-pigmentation.

Niacinamide is a powerful antioxidant that acts as an anti-inflammatory, improves your skin elasticity, enhance the skin barrier function and also it helps to even out skin tone and reduce post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation. Sodium ascorbyl phosphate is a gentle derivative of Vitamin C, containing antioxidants that contribute to evening out and brightening skin tone.  Citric acid (AHA) will gently exfoliate and promote cellular turnover, so it will help brighten and smooth your skin.  Adenosine helps improve the reduction of wrinkles and is also an anti inflammatory.  Magnesium gluconate is an antibacterial, helping prevent infections and blemishes  while calcium gluconate has restorative properties and will soothe your skin.

Houttuynia cordata is a medicinal herb that is found in a lot in Asian skin care products. It is an antibiotic, which helps with preventing infection from skin problems, such as blemishes.  It also has powerful detox properties, is an astringent and anti-inflammatory.  Spirulina platensis is a micro algae which has powerful anti-aging, antioxidant benefits.  It contains  high sources of vitamin E and carotene, along with vitamins B complex and C, minerals, essential amino acids and enzymes, all which help with premature aging.  (source Natural Actives)

And finally, to lock it all in, the powerhouse of moisturizers ~ ceramides, which are a lipid found in our skin cells and as we age, those ceramides decline, leading to dry, flaky skin.  Introducing ceramides back to our skin via skincare products helps lock in moisture and create balanced skin. Shea butter contains a rich source of concentrated natural vitamins and fatty acids ~ oleic, stearic, palmitic, linolenic ~ and is highly moisturizing and nourishing.  It helps repair your skin, as well as reduce skin inflammation and it also smooths your skin to protect it from drying and it strengthens your skin over time as it helps aid in the collagen production. Macadamia oil has several fatty acids, which have anti-aging properties ~ palmitoleic acid:  delays skin and cell aging; oleic acid: moisturizing and regeneration properties; linoleic acid: prevents water loss from your skin tissues.  It is also high in phytosterols, which helps calm and soothe irritated skin.

This is not a vegan product, as it does contain beeswax. Dr Jart+ Cicapair Cream is free from 10 harmful ingredients:  mineral oil, artificial fragrance,  artificial dyes,  denatured alcohol, triclosan, triethanolamine, sulfate surfactants,  propylene glycol, and DEA.  I do quibble over some of the items in their list as “harmful”, but this is what the packaging states!

HOW IS IT ?

 

As the name suggests the form of the green cream, it smells like a plant but a bit orangey citrus kind a thing I think. Before I tried it in my face I tried it in my hands, first I start to put a little and rub it gently and what I found really interesting is when I rub it the green color was fading into my normal skin color but even better I think. Then I tried it on my face it feels like I'm wearing nothing. It’s just leave very light on my skin and it corrects all the red spots and blemishes on my face but it did not leave any white cast at all. It works like a green concealer but of course, this one is better causing this is a skincare.

 

On the first day, I used this result has been very satisfactory. It's hard for me to find a product like a lightweight foundation that can be used every day. My sensitive skin type makes me unable to use makeup every day because it will make me break out very easily. In addition to correcting all the blemishes on my face Cicapair also serves as a sunscreen with SPF 30 and PA++ , in case you haven’t know that SPF indicates the level of protection from UVB rays while PA indicates the level of protection from UVA rays. PA simply means Protection Grade of UVA rays. Asian brands of sunscreen, especially Japanese sunscreen brands use the Protection Grade of UVA (PA) system to measure the sun protection factor (SPF) of a sunscreen. This Japanese measurement ranking which is now widely used, is based on the Persistent Pigment Darkening (PPD) reaction reading at 2-4 hours of sun exposure. Protective grade of sunscreen is often leveled as PA+, PA++, PA+++ with the more plus sign the more protection from UVA rays.

 

Also The skincancer.org  says that products with very high SPFs may also encourage individuals to neglect other photo protective behaviors, like seeking the shade and wearing sun-protective clothing.  By preventing sunburn, sunscreens with very high SPFs can create a false sense of security, prompting consumers to stay out in the sun longer.  Sun damage (for example, UVA damage) can take place without skin-reddening doses of UV radiation, and even the best sunscreens should be considered just one vital part of a comprehensive sun protection regimens , they suggest products with SPFs no lower than 30 and no higher than 50. In addition to an SPF of 30+, your sunscreen should include some combination of the following UVA-blocking ingredients: zinc oxide, titanium dioxide, avobenzone, ecamsule, and oxybenzone.

 

 

You certainly will not go out without using sunblock cause it’ll damage your skin even if you are already using sunscreen it’s not enough you still have to use sunnies or hat don’t just rely on the sunscreen to do the heavy lifting,  so from the long explanation above you can already judge how great this product it's like a magic in one jar! But wait until we get into the best part yet.

 

So a week before I start using cicapair I was trying to use the bio-oil on my face. I’ve been reading some reviews about bio oil can eliminate acne scars and it's an anti-aging oil too if you use it daily and just rub it with your finger into the area of you acne scars only. But I’m a person who loves to try out things and I came with a stupid logic that if this oil can be used for anti-aging things it means that I can use it for the whole part of my face, plus!!! There's an instruction pic that shows u should use it to all over your face then massage it gently, and then the worst part just getting started.

 

 A night after I slept with bio oil all over my face, I started to get the white head on my forehead!!! Omg, and I’m not even kidding it appeared a lot in the middle of my forehead!! Aargh, I knew it that this was a bad idea. But luckily in the afternoon, I got my cicapair package so then i start using my cicapair on the next day. I did my daily skincare routine and end it with cicapair as my sunblock. On everyday makeup i only use bronzer, blush and a tiny bit of blush. When I use it with makeup the first thing I realize is the cicapair texture itself is very blendable, it does not move at all and turns out it gives me a really good complexion. I use cicapair start at 8 am and all day I did not do any touch up  because I also want to give a test to the endurance of the complexion. At 2 pm I checked my face turns out its not greasy, not oxidized at all and did not leave the white cast when I saw it under the sunlight. It gave me the same color as my neck and the most important again the texture is very light but still gives the medium coverage as I need. What I realize the green color of cicapair itself provides a function like a green concealer to remove redness on the face.

 

At 8 pm I removed all the makeup and skincare I had used all day and after I removed the makeup I noticed the white heads that had been on my forehead were all smaller and almost gone! I am very surprised to see this effect because I have not previously used a product for acne whose effects can be felt in just a few hours! It's really crazy. The next day I continue to use cicapair and of course, the other thing that I realize next is acne redheads on my chin, as always my skin always appears acne when before menstruation red heads this appeared along with whiteheads yesterday, but new bloated now and very dubious. After I use cicapair at night the acne red heads had no longer swollen even been a small point. Maybe because the content of Centella and other ingredients that are in the cicapair in addition to sunblock is also focused to reduce acne, therefore, acne pimples in advance I easily overcome after using cicapair especially you guys who have sensitive skin also will know how acne pimples that popping up is not only pain also causes red around acne and also inflamed. This product was frikkin amazing !!!

 

 

HOW MUCH IS IT?

 

I bought this color correcting cicapair in Shoppee but I forgot what the name of the store, cicapair color correcting cream with size 30 ml is at the price 500k ish, from research that I do before buying also the average is in the price while for the product package is in price 1 million rupiah something I forgot how much the details. In addition to the shoppe also, of course, you can get it in Tokopedia, a lot of online shops that sells cicapair, of course, you also can easily compare where the trusted online shop and who do not. Also if you do not want to buy a full size at the same time there are many shops that sell the share in a jar, if not wrong the price is only 70 thousand a but always make sure you buy in an online shop that has a trusted quality. Is it worth? Hell yes !!! Guys buy this product one of you buy 3 skincare products at once! If you think expensive remember guys in 2018 this all can be installments. For a nominal product of 500 thousand can be repaid up to 6 months means one month you only need to pay 86 thousand only! Always remember guys skincare is your investment !!!

 

 

So those guys were just my explanation after using the cicapair product from Dr.Jart +.  The review I gave them to use facial and skin care products for different people. Keep in mind you must stay hydrated because of beauty and skin health not only from the product alone but also from our lifestyle!
