Dr. Jart Cicapair Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment

This Product Straight Up Eliminated My Need For Foundation

A post shared by Dr.Jart Global (@drjart) on

Truth be told, I don't remember where I first heard about the product that would overthrow my daily makeup routine. It may have been on a "best of" list, or talked about among friends, but eventually, I bought a jar of Dr. Jart's Cicapair Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment. At $52, it was a modest investment in the future of my splotchy skin.

I have combination skin: overall dry, with perpetually large cheek pores and a nose that's prone to becoming oily halfway through the day. Due to a bout of mid-20s cystic acne, my face is uneven in both color and surface texture. (Gotta love acne, eh?) It's not perfect, but I'm OK with that.

What I don't love, however, is that I'm prone to redness. I'm a pale, freckled gal, and my skin's undertone could be compared to the color of Dorothy's ruby slippers. I used to dull the redness with a primer and a hefty dose of foundation, but the Correcting Treatment has eliminated my need for both — I now slather on a bit of the product, follow it up with a touch of powder, and I'm good to go. Here I am two minutes after putting it on (no foundation, no powder):

"But Maggie," you're thinking. "It's just green sunscreen, isn't it?"

No, dear reader, it isn't.

It's a chameleon product that starts as a mossy green, then transforms to fit your skin's shade. The Tiger Grass (an herb) covers inflammation, redness, and blemishes while helping to cure those issues. It's not just a Band-Aid; it's a recovery tool. Because it's naturally hydrating (and free of parabens, sulfates, and phthalates), it's taken the place of my daily moisturizer, in addition to my sunscreen and foundation. My skin can breathe, because there's only one product coating it.

I've converted more than one friend to Cicapair, because there's nothing better than a product that actually works.
