Foundation is so winter. I really am just going through a “I hate foundation” right now.
I am definitly more into skincare right now and the whole concept and ideology that perfecting the base (aka your skin) is really were it is at. Because summertime is especially the time where you should let your skin breath after wearing makeup all fall, winter and spring. Summertime is the time to let your freckles peek out, which I have maybe 5 of, but I am still on board with that whole idea.
So when I found Dr. Jart Cicapair Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment, I instantly purchased the trial size since the full size is a big commitment money wise for a trial, good idea product.
A little information about this product. You know, just typical research about something you are going to put on your face.
Cicapair is great on all skin-types. Oily, combo, normal, dry, sensitive, it works on it all. I will say that if you want a matte, no glow finish 24/7, this may not be your product, but I believe even with this product you could achieve that look with a good matte powder. That just is the opposite of what I prefer so I haven’t tried it yet.
You’re probably wondering what the hell this is. Right? The Dr. Jart Cicapair is a green-to-beige color correcting treatment that correcting redness in your skin and protects it from environmental aggressors.
For me, I use it to cover the redness in my cheeks, and the redness of any acne spots I have. This is the main reason why I wear foundation in the first place, so you can see how I just use it to replace my foundation. If you want that extra coverage, you can also use Cicapair as a primer or base to color correct in preparation for your foundation, tinted moisturizer, CC Cream etc. what you use.
It also has SPF 30 (which I am all about) to protect my skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays. I actually put this sunscreen on before the Cicapair just for the extra protection.
How it works, is it goes on green after taking it out of the cute little jar and after blending it into your skin (I use my fingers) it goes to a beige, skin matching color thanks to the color-changing capsules within the formula. It provides you protection from harmful UV light, and when you put the product on, it creates a dust barrier (thank god) to protect it from the environment while enhancing your skin.
It restores the strength of your skin with the use of houttuynia cordata and yarrow. And it’s infused with sodium, potassium, calcium, and magnesium to help improve the skin’s moisture levels and restore fatigued skin for a healthy appearance.
And a key part is it is formulated WITHOUT parabens, sulfates and phthalates.
A little history on the inspiration of the product is how a long time ago Asian tigers would roll around in Centella Asiatica to heal their battle wounds. Centella Asiatica is better known as Tiger Grass. It’s medicinal properties have been used for centuries. The tiger grass ingredient has also been recognized as a recovery system to help support wounded skin exhibiting inflammation, redness, or blemishes.
Currently I am ride or die for this product. Make sure to check it out!
I will post an updated makeup video using this soon!
