The cleanser your face will thank you for using: Real Cica Micellar Cleansing Oil

By Carolina Malis

The road to finding the perfect cleansing oil has been a long one for me. I've tried every type: balms, liquid, thicker ones, lighter ones but there's really just two things I really look for in all of them: to remove makeup easily without me having to rub for hours and for it to be gentle for sensitive skins like mine. I've had the chance to test some real good ones but also some that end up irritating my skin or my eyes, so even after years of trying K-Beauty there's just a few that have made it to my "keepers" list.

 

Now, if that cleansing oil besides removing makeup and dead skin cells can hydrate my sink in the process then that's a winner, and let me tell you there's just a few of those. Last week I told you about the perks of Cica as used on skincare (https://www.neogenlab.us/blogs/news/neo-i-trending-br-cica-the-superhero-ingredient-that-will-change-your-sensitive-skin-forever) and how Neogen uses it as part of their new cleansing line. In case you need a reminder Cica - short for Centella Asiatica - is an antioxidant-rich herb that acts like a superhero on troubled skin (AKA dry, inflamed, red, sensitive, acne prone or flaky complexions). Its anti-inflammatory properties are incredible to calm down the dermis and heal it, all while repairing the skin barrier which can be easily damaged because of dryness, eczema, sun exposure, aging or other skincare ingredients. Last week we talked about this line's cleansing foam but today it's time to introduce you to the Real Cica micellar Cleansing Oil.

This mild micellar oil is kind of a mix between a cleansing water and a cleansing oil that thoughuly gets rid of dirt, toxins, makeup and impurities caught in our pores while keeping our skin's hydration levels high. It's very very veeeery light, so if you're not much of a balm-cleanser kinda person you'll really enjoy this one. It is not sticky at all and doesn't leave a heavy feeling on the skin - which I deeply appreciate.

One of the perks I like the most about it is how fast and easily it removes makeup. With some cleansing oils I've tried in the past I've had to remove eye and lip makeup with a special remover before even stepping into the oil, but with this one a few rubs and all makeup is absolutely and completely gone.

In terms of formula, this oil is enriched with 5 super soothing ingredientes like Centella Asiatica and Madecasside which help boost your skin hydration levels for a plump complexion, besides soybean oil, bergamot fruit oil, olive fruit oil hyaluronic acid and ceramides which help brighten and active skin cell turnover, plus as it's completely free of mineral oils its safe for all skin types!

You know how when breakouts decide to show up the cleansing step can be a little uncomfortable? With some cleansing oils I feel like I need to be especially cautious when rubbing on top of pimples because of how easily they can get inflamed and red, but this cleansing oil did the absolute opposite! After washing my face I immediately see redness dim down and breakout calm down.

This oil is an absolute catch people. I could try to convince in many forms but I'm just gonna let you try it yourself because you're gonna get just as obsessed as me after the first week.

Have you tried Cica on your skincare routine before? How does it work for you? Let us know in the comments!

Cleansers + Antioxidants: a match made in heaven

Before falling in love with K-beauty, and way before it changing my life and skin forever, I was a very lazy person when talking skincare routines. I had this 3-steps set my dermatologist prescribed but I was not consistent, and washing my face turned into something controlled by my mood. Now, looking back to those dark days I just can't believe how many times I went to bed with makeup on or applied my treatment cream without first washing my face, something that now just thinking about it makes me feel like I’m inside a horror movie (yes, I’m dramatic like that).

A Spray Serum Can Be The Answer To All Your Winter Skincare Needs

I’ve said it before: my skin is not only combo but also very sensitive, and rosacea + acne prone… yeah, yeah, someone decided to add a little bit of everything during the DNA distribution. Thing is for many years I just catalogued my skin as oily, because I used to think that was my one and only skin concern and that every other problem was a consequence of the oiliness. Oh, how wrong I was.

For the past few years thousands or thousands of new beauty trends have showed up. There are ones that last, others that come and go, but there’s one trend that arrived in this world to stay for eternity: sheet masks. At this point I think we all have tried at least 1 sheet masks in our lives, am I right? There are really simple ones, luxury ones, for brightening, for aging, for wrinkles, for hydration… there’s a sheet mask for everyone and their mothers out there. But there’s so much more to these godsends than just a cotton layer you put on your face and take selfies with.
