Oh hello sensitive red skin, meet Dr. Jart.
Dr Jart Cicapair Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment
The Dr. Jart Cicapair Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment not only corrects redness via it’s green-to-beige tint, but also offers the skin some stress relief and sun protection. It contains a blend of centella asiatica (amino acids with soothing properties), panthenol (a form of Vitamin B5 + a humectant), raspberry leaf extract (an antioxidant with anti-inflammatory benefits), niacinamide (an ingredient I love + you should look into), and more to help stressed skin in a variety of ways, especially if you’re also blemish prone like moi.
The green-to-beige tint won’t be suitable for every skin tone– unless you plan on putting foundation on top– simply because the light beige tint only comes in one color. It works on my skin tone (around a MAC NC35), but does give me a little bit of a white cast– it does have zinc oxide and titanium dioxide– so I have to be careful and can’t apply too much. For me, it works best when I apply a little at a time, making sure to blend it in nicely, and usually use my fingers because it warms up the product and blends it in more evenly and smoothly.
Because the slight tint evens things out, I generally use it in place of foundation, and spot conceal if I want more coverage, which, let’s be honest, on most days is something I can’t be bothered with. But, I have used this under foundation a couple times, and it didn’t make my makeup look cakey. Instead, it gave my skin some much needed TLC, and made my base look better because it created a soothing barrier between my inflamed skin and my foundation.
The consistency is on the creamier thick side, but doesn’t look cakey or cling to dry patches. I always apply moisturizer beforehand, but even without this makes my skin look fresh, hydrated, smooth, and more even.
This little pot of green is great for red, inflamed skin, and I love it. It always calms things down, but never feels suffocating or heavy or greasy. It’s become a daily regular on this face. And, I can see this giant jar lasting me a very (very, very) long time.
