Cicapair Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment SPF 30

This product is a tinted sunscreen. It doesn’t color correct any more than any other tinted sunscreen. In order for green to cancel out red, it needs to stay being green. This cream changes to beige as you rub it in and pop the encapsulated color particles. The reason it offers any redness/pigmentation reduction is because it’s got zinc oxide, iridescent particles and a beige tint, which is also part of its downfall - all those minerals must make this formula bad for dry skin. Clings to patches, sinks into lines and sucks all the moisture out of my skin. Oh, and after an hour or so, the cosmetic benefits virtually disappear. As a sunscreen, it’s not even decently wearable, it’s so thick and you better blend it quick. I doubt the coverage would be adequate without applying a lot of product, more than you’d think and enough to look cakey. And as far as the filters used, there’s not enough zinc oxide to be effective against the full UVA spectrum. So it won’t replace a proper daily sun screen if you’re concerned about photodamage and anti-aging. So I’ve shat on the product because I feel like it’s trying to be too many things and not doing well at any of them. I would up the zinc percentage and call it a tinted sunscreen if I were Dr. Jart. And take out all the essential oils which have no business in a sunscreen. I won’t re purchase because I’ve tried numerous better tinted sunscreens with both chemical and physical filters. I use my sensual skin enhancer when I want actual coverage. The positives are that it blurs and leaves a nice glow. And it’s much more universal and flattering than Elta MD tinted physical sunscreen. That’s all I’ve got.

I prefer creams and gels that have good slip- that don't pull on my facial skin when I apply it. This is a nice medium rich winter cream with a nice non-perfumey smell but it drags on my skin when I apply it. It does this even if I apply on still damp skin or really use a lot to slather it on. So not for me

The current version of this product is actually a reformulation. Best I can tell, Dr. Jart changed from having tiger grass water as the third ingredient to tiger grass extract which is now the last ingredient. And they added vinyl dimethicone, whereas the original formula was ‘cone free. 

The original formula, which I’ve been fortunate enough to find (3 tubes that expire in 2022) at TJ Max and Marshall’s, is hands down the best cream I’ve ever used. The BEST. 


I’m 40 with normal-dry skin. I’ve been using tretinoin for 6 years, I have regular chemical peels and use vitamin c+AHA serum. So my skin barrier is always a bit compromised and my skin isn’t as tolerant at it once was. If I don’t keep moisturized and hydrated throughout the day, my skin can get sallow, crepe-y and thirsty looking. 


I typically use oils to moisturize and have been for close to 15 years. I typically stay away from creams, with few exceptions. Creams are always too greasy, too rubbery, too filmy, too stinky, etc for my preferences. 


The original Cicapair cream leaves my skin baby soft for hours and hours, even when my skin is at its driest. It takes away that tight, irritated feeling and keeps it away. I think it’s the film forming agents used in the formula, the polyacrylates. It’s not tacky or sticky like oil/petroleum-based, and not rubbery and artificial feeling like silicones. The after feel is very smooth but also soft and very natural, and the occlusive properties are long lasting, hours and hours. I’ve never had a cream perform this way before. It doesn’t sting or sensitize my skin, which almost always happens when I use products with essential oils. t’s perfect. I never thought I would prefer a cream over an oil, but I’m finding I’m reaching for my oils less and less because this cream really soothes, plumps and moisturizes, and it forms a nice undetectable protective barrier with great longevity. I could see it being useful for a myriad of issues, although of course YMMV. And also finding it is going to get harder and harder. 


I hate that they reformulated it. I have no plans to try the new version, I hate silicones.
