How I haven't done a non-sheet mask review for Korean skincare brand Dr. Jart is a mystery to me, but as I am playing an eternal game of beauty product review catch up, I guess it's not a huge surprise. I first tried the Dr. Jart Cicapair collection back in 2019 when I went to a Sephora GWP event at Park Royal with a friend and the featured brand was Dr. Jart. The Cicapair collection contains Centella asiatica or cica which is known to be very skin-soothing. It is also referred to by the name "tiger grass" as tigers would roll on this soothing grass whenever they were itchy or needed healing! That day, I picked up the Tiger Grass Calming Mist to dip a toe into the brand's actual skincare and was quite pleased! I recently had the opportunity to try a few more Cicapair products so I think I now have a pretty good understanding of the collection! 

Enzyme Foam Cleanser*

Dr. Jart Cicapair Tiger Grass Collection

This is an every day creamy, foaming cleanser for sensitive skin that comes out as a pea-green cream and lathers into a gentle foam on wet skin. The key ingredients are of course cica, but also glycerin, lipase and protease and a myriad of hydrating plant extracts. The lipase and protease are the enzymes this cleanser refers to and is thought to be a more gentle way to exfoliate compared to acids for more sensitive skin.

As this is for sensitive skin, the goal of this cleanser is to remove impurities and dirt as opposed to getting skin "super clean" which is why I don't really enjoy foaming cleansers all that much. This is the FIRST foaming cleanser I have ever used (specifically a Korean brand) that does not leave my skin with a "squeaky clean" finish which I was SO HAPPY about. It is just one of those sensations I don't particularly enjoy, but seems to be a very popular one. There also isn't much of a scent which makes sense considering the skin type it targets. I have been using this as my second cleanse and it is also comfortable to use around the eyes, but if you are wearing waterproof or long-wearing makeup, I recommend using an eye makeup remover first.

Calming Mist

Dr. Jart Cicapair Tiger Grass Collection

This is a fine hydrating mist containing "Jartbiome", Dr. Jart's proprietary microbiome complex, to soothe sensitive skin and deliver long-lasting relief while strengthening the skin barrier. I don't have irritated or super dry skin too often, but back in December when Vancouver had sub-zero temperatures and no moisture in the air, THIS mist was what my skin needed! I was pretty generous with it in the morning after rinsing my face and it managed to quench and quell any itchiness caused by dryness. It has a good nozzle that does indeed produce a fine mist all over the face that isn't so powerful that all of the product gets concentrated onto just one area! The dispersion to strength ratio is good with this one! It also smells like lavender which is one of my most favourite scents so keep that in mind should you ever decide to pick this up as I know this scent can be polarizing!

Sleepair Intensive Mask

Dr. Jart Cicapair Tiger Grass Collection

This sleeping mask is one of the more talked about products in the Cicapair collection and is a leave-on gel mask that is cooling and promises refreshed skin in the morning. It has a fun texture and leaves a slightly tacky finish to the skin, but I am able to sleep comfortably without my pillow case sticking to my skin. Over the years, my excitement for sleeping masks has waned as I honestly don't use them that much anymore and often have to remind myself to use them. While I suppose I could use sleeping masks as a night moisturizer, I sometimes enjoy facial oils too so in general I find sleeping masks a challenge to incorporate into my night time routine.

The instructions say to use a thin layer and to let this sleeping mask absorb for 20 minutes or to slug with it and apply a thick layer. I have never slugged with my skincare as I have never really felt the need to, but maybe I will try it at some point with this mask because 100mL of a product you need so little of is going to take forever to go through! I can honestly say that while I have finished moisturizers a plenty, I have NEVER finished a sleeping mask! While this would have been a product for mid-20s/early 30s Jayne, almost 40 year old Jayne doesn't get quite as excited about it, but you do wake up with nice feeling skin in the morning though for me I didn't see a massive difference compared to doing my sheet masking skincare routine.

Dr. Jart Cicapair Tiger Grass Collection

Final verdict: The Calming Mist is still my favourite, but the Foaming Cleanser was a pleasant surprise! I wish I liked the Sleeping Mask more, but I think it's just me as most of the reviews I have read about it have been glowing. The other product from the Cicapair collection I have tried that enjoyed is the Color Correctiong Treatment SPF 35 because the coverage was really good for me as it pretty much takes care of all the redness around my nose and cheeks AND the fact that there is SPF is a huge bonus. All in all, the Cicapair collection has a good assortment of what I refer to as "peripheral" or "endcap" products so as long as you are using a good serum in the middle, this is a great routine for reactive/sensitive skin that even someone at my age can enjoy.
