This babe, really knows how to calm down redness. Like, seriously. She knows. This balm for me is more richer than the 2x barrier intensive cream. Its consistency is actually more gel like rather than the 2x barrier cream, but somehow its more heavy with moisture. Usually i put this on the side of my nose where sometimes, its kinda red. Or below my nose when my nose get stuffed, and you keep rubbing it, it gets red and itchy and hurt, put this babe. Or over your really red and angry acne. Not helping with the acne itself, but its more to calm the redness of it. Everything about this babe for me is CALMING your REDNESS
I LOVE this cica balm! It was the first cica balm I was trying and absolutely fell in love - started using it after my skin got super unstable from travelling for a month and within a week of starting use my skin felt so much softer and everything healed a lot quicker. Has a slightly thick texture but once warmed up on fingers it glides on the skin and it feels like it almost creates a barrier on the skin. Probably would recommend more for drier skin types and also for sensitive skin!
For my skin type, this did not work and made it feel stuffy and clogged. This worked better for my friend who has sensitive skin and is not acne prone. My face breaks out from products that contain shea butter, mineral oil, or coconut oil and this product contains a form of shea butter which is not bad for most people but not for my skin type. Does what it claims to do so it is a great moisturizer, just know your skins needs.
#yay This cica balm is very moisturizing and good for calming irritated skin and redness on the face. Since it's a balm, it has a pretty thick texture so I either use it as a spot treatment on active inflamed pimples or mix it into my cream at night for added moisture and healing benefits. It won't get rid of acne, but it can help fresh acne scabs heal faster and calm down angry irritated pimples. I wouldn't say this is a must-have product, but it does what it claims to do.
#yay I have been using an anti acne products that helped me clear my acne and as I am transitioning my skincare routine I happen to receive this in a sample size and whenever I get pimples like 1 or 2 I always put this on those pimples to help calm it down, and everytime I do that I am not disappointed about the result as It flattens the pimples in just 2 days and that is a big help I also noticed that it lightens the pimple marks so I have been using this as my emergency acne spot cream and it surely works.
