The sensitive-skin friendly pads: Meet the Real Cica Pad

The sensitive-skin friendly pads we've all been waiting for: Meet the Real Cica Pad

by Carolina Malis

By now, everyone knows I'm not the biggest fan of warm weather, buuuut, I'm not gonna say I'm not a little excited about spring being right around the corner. This winter was hard peeps, extremely low temperatures not only got us crying our eyes out but also hydrated skin was a hard task to accomplish some days. My skin is super sensitive to weather, mood, hormones, harsh ingredientes, food… well, basically everything, and besides getting pimples or visible pores, one of the consequences of my sensitivity is redness and inflammation… all day… everyday… but thankfully I've learned the best way to fight it is keeping my skin hydrated and toned. For that reason a few months ago I started applying AT LEAST 3 layers of toner in the morning and at night in order to reach my goal and it totally changed the game.

But a few weeks ago a new product showed up in front of me and changed that routine a little bit. I'm talking about the Neogen Real Cica Pads. Now, we all know (and if you didn't then now you do!) Neogen has one of the best selections when talking pads: exfoliating, soothing, calming, toning or moisturizing, you will definitely find the one for you between what the brand has to offer, but I never got such great result in so little time as with these ones.

The Real Cica Pads are basically a daily multi-purpose pad that not only helps exfoliate in a super gentle way but also soothes and refines skin surface, providing hydration and helping your skin calm down, decreasing redness and sensitivity, AKA, a masterpiece.

Each jar contains 90 pads and yes, you can use them every single day - different from the Bio-Peel ones that you should use every 2-4 days.

Now, what's in these treasures that makes them so incredibly soothing and my current obsession? They're formulated with PHA (or Polyhydroxy acid) - a super effective skin exfoliator that's way less irritating than AHA's and BHA's, attracting moisture to skin to prevent over drying it while exfoliating and improving its overall tone - and blended with Centella Asiatica and Hyaluronic acid to restore and nourish your skin.

Now, let's talk the real talk. My cheeks and chin are pretty much always red as I've been dealing with Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation for a few months now. What I've learned so far is that -and this is what works specificaly for me - when redness or inflammation gets worst I need to keep my routine simple, short and super hydrating (picture lots of toner, oils and watery moisturizers). When I first put my hands on these pads, I tried them right after my toner and before my night-time oil. The next morning I really didn't see many changes, but hey, you need to give your skin a little time to process, right? It was not until the 3rd day that I woke up shocked to my very core. You know those days when you wake up, look at the mirror and your skin looks so good you start wondering if you forgot to remove your foundation the night before? Well, that was me, shocked in front of the mirror contemplating how smooth and even my skin looked like that morning. My makeup goes on easier and lasts longer, plus I don't get creased foundation so fast (I'm not gonna say I don't get it at all because I do but that's a conversation we're gonna have another day, stay tuned).

So far it's been around 3 weeks since I tried them for the first time and while I don't use them every single day (probably 3-4 days a week), they're definitely part of my routine and I plan to keep them in it. These are just so sensitive, irritated and acne-prone skin friendly, I wouldn't doubt it for a second before recommending it to my troubled skin fellas. Best thing? I got them as a gift directly brought to me from Korea, because at that time they were not available in the States yet, BUT that changed and now you can get them from Soko Glam! So you have no excuses to not give them a try now.

White Truffle Serum In Oil Drop

I have loved all the Neogen products I’ve used in the past, so I was really excited to try this one out! The white truffle line came out only a month ago and seems to be a hit here in Korea. They also have two other white truffle products that I might review later on.

El serum en Spray con hidrógeno que tu piel necesita

Ahora que las temperaturas están subiendo en el cono sur del mundo y que la primavera al fin se acerca es cosa de días para que las flores comienzan a aparecer, la ropa liviana se vuelva a tomar las calles y los días vuelvan a ser largos y las noches cortas. Pero con todas estas maravillas también vienen algunos contras. Si eres de los que tienen piel grasa la primavera y el verano pueden llegar a transformarse en una pesadilla en la que que salir a la calle es básicamente lanzarse a una piscina.

Meet White Truffle Oil: your skin's superhero for Fall

There's many amazing moments throughout the year where I feel super joyful: thanksgiving, new years, christmas, but on top of all of them the happiest moment of the year for me is the day summer finally ends and fall starts. Is there really anything more magical than Fall? Back to the sweaters, orange trees, lattes, perfect temperature… but Oh, oh… transitional weather can play rough games with our skin.

Real Ferment Micro Serum
Review by Stella

When I look into products for my skincare routine, I will generally be focusing on hydration and brightening properties – since they are my main skin concerns. I first came across this Real Ferment Micro Serum from Neogen on Instagram, and I was first interested because the packaging looked really sleek and compact. So, I was pretty excited when it showed up at my place in a PR package and I put it to the test that very evening.
