If you suffer from sensitive skin or actually have skin that acts sensitive once in while, Tiger Grass (Centella Asiatica or gotu kola), works wonders on sensitive skin. Dr. Jart+ has some formulations of its Tiger Grass products that provide immediate results on skin. My skin only acts up once in a while. I happen to have some problems when the seasons change and the weather warms up, causing atopic dermatitis on my neck and some sensitivity to products.
I recently purchased the Cicapair Tiger Grass Sleepair Intensive Mask to try out. To me a good sleep mask is a great thing. Skin repairs itself at night and having an ingredient that really works so well, when applied at night should help ease skin sensitivity. I tried out the mask a couple of times when my skin was itchy, red, flaky and inflamed. Then I went to bed. By morning my skin felt amazing. No longer did I have any itchy red patches. The dryness was gone too. This mask promises soothing, moisturizing activity that visibly improves skin texture and radiance while you sleep for soft, glowing skin. It does just that. Cicapair Tiger Grass Sleepair Intensive Mask was made for normal, dry, combination and oily skin types. This mask works for dryness, dullness and uneven texture. Although it is made for sensitive skin the mask works wonders or any skin type. It is an especially good mask to have around if you have normal to dry skin that tends to be sensitive sometimes. I swear this mask worked wonders on my skin in just a few hours.
The last few days I used the mask once when I noticed some uneven skin texture and sensitivity on my face. After cleansing my skin, I applied the mask (a gel texture) and then let it sink in. Apply to clean skin as the last part of your nighttime routine and wait 20 minutes before bed. At night I only applied the mask instead of any other skincare so as to avoid anything else influencing the results of this product test. The mask does drench the face in immediate moisture and soothing, cooling relief. When I woke up my face felt nice and soft and the offending redness and texture issues (bumps) had disappeared.
This intensive gel treatment mask soothes skin, helps elasticity, moisturizes and boosts radiance all while you sleep. It strengthens the natural moisture barrier with intense hydration. The mask contains +Green Repair Solution, a proprietary derma complex that brings together Tiger Grass (Centella Asiatica, aka Cica or gotu kola) with a skin boosting blend of herbs, minerals, a moisturizing humectant and a probiotic ferment to soothe the skin with moisture.
I want to go over some of the ingredients in this mask. First off is glycerin, a key moisturizing humectant that leaves dry, parched skin feeling soft and glowing. Next we have niacinamide, which helps to curtail sebum production and puts hyperpigmentation and redness at bay. Sugar cane extract acts as a light natural exfoliant that helps to brighten the skin's appearance and smooth the skin, owing to its natural lactic acid. Lactic acid is the only reliable AHA that can be used on sensitive skins with any redundancy. Next, panthenol works to hydrate, soothe and calm the skin, it is also known as a humectant because of its ability to penetrate deep into the skin's lower layers and imbue water into the cells. It also helps to stimulate cells that boost skin barrier function, thus boosting the natural skin barrier's health itself. A healthy natural moisture barrier locks in moisture and keeps it from escaping. When skin becomes sensitive it is usually because the natural moisture barrier is compromised to an extent. Also included in the formula, bamboo vinegar is known for its healing properties, It reduces swelling, itchiness and redness. Turmeric root extract has anti-inflammatory/antioxidant properties and is very soothing for the skin. It also contains a high amount of Vitamin C. Finally, also included is the +Green Repair Solution which has already been discussed and is the main source of the mask's soothing power.
Altogether I am VERY happy with how this mask performed. It provides immediate results to the skin, By morning, my skin looked and felt less red and inflamed. My skin was glowing and radiant. Redness and irritation had dissipated. This mask works wonders in little to no time. Definitely worth the money. I would describe my skin as predominately normal to dry. During the spring and summer it is more normal than anything else and during the winter it is definitely very dry. I love how nicely this mask sinks into my skin and soothes it. I would definitely recommend it. The mask worked extremely well on my skin in just hours, I can imagine it would again and think that if you have extremely sensitive skin it will do wondrous things for your skin.
