vrijdag 8 april 2022

Oh god, it has been a very long time! With my life being on pause, my blog and skincare addiction had to be on pause as well, but I'm back with some reviews! On todays read we have products from the COSRX Cica-7 solution line. You guys know me, I loveeee COSRX. Their snail line has to be one of my favorites! If you are interested, click here for the read and my review.

The COSRX Cica-7 solution line focusses on outbreaks and acne prone skin. With their main ingredient being centella, which will help greatly with inflammation. The Cica Pad is a Multi-functional toner & sheet masking pad designed for those looking for toner pads that function as both a toner pad and sheet mask. A cool thing is that this product has the highest content of CICA in the whole line making it a great concentration product for your face. The Cica Cream Intense is a moisturizing cream that soothes the sensitive skin at the same time. It has 7 types of centella extract and offers intense moisture due to the 1,000 ppm of Centella Asiatica Oil + Panthenol + Allantoin, which makes this cream live up to its name.

Look and feel
The design of the product is simple, easy to use and fits the theme of offering cooling effects on the face. What I extremely like about the design is that the key ingredients are right in the front, so we can immediately see the centella ingredients. Incorporating the color green as well, there's simply nothing I want to change about the design.


Before I go in with the final verdict, I just want to take a moment appreciating how thin the sheets are from the Cica Pad! Each sheet is packed with product as well and the amount of sheets seems endless. It comes with a clip and lid to keep the bacteries out, making it easier to get out the sheets, since they are clumped together. 

I personally liked using this as an essence kind of product rather than a toner, so I used it after toner, before moisturizer. I liked to use 2-3 sheets for my face, covering both my cheeks and my forehead. Obviously there will be some spots that are not covered, you can use more to make it into a sheetmask or you can use it only on your problem areas. After leaving it in, I like to rub the excess product into my skin and move on to the moisturizer. I really like how cooling this product is! It feels super relaxing and after leaving it on my face there's still product left to rub into the rest of the skin. 

The cream is perfect for the colder days since it helped a lot with keeping my skin moisturized, it calms my skin and gets rid of the redness as well. I like how the texture is not too thick, so its easy to work with fast absorption. It has a very faint smell that goes away quickly, but even if it lingered, it wouldnt bother me at all.
