[unpaid/sample/affiliate/ad] Cica is an ingredient that we’re familiar with – it’s more commonly known as Centella Asiatica or Tiger Grass. It’s been used for centuries as a natural healer and most skin types tolerate it well, particularly those with very dry skin. When I tested this, I immediately thought of it as a balm for skin that’s had too much of all the elements – fast forward to that sleety-icy-windy walk in January and that pink and pinchy feeling on your face and that’s where we’re at. It’s for days when you want to stay in but have to go out, basically!
Added to cica, which has anti-inflammatory properties, the formula also contains chamomile – another known soother. When you apply the fragrance free cream to your skin – on face or body but frankly, I’d be saving this for the face – it forms a very fine film which acts as a barrier to prevent any further moisture loss as well as locking in what’s there. It’s fresh and light feeling – your face won’t feel overloaded – but you will need to be consistent with it to see the real benefit of repair.
There are lots of offers on today – I’ve landed on John Lewis which has the best deal on this at £34 HERE, non affiliate HERE, and if you’re not buying for yourself, it’s the kind of skin care gift that you can give to literally anyone and it will be right because it feels fancy but is extremely useful.
