Neogen Dermalogy Real Cica Pad Review

Hello, hello everyone!

I hope you’re having a wonderful day! If you read my blog, you know how much I love me a good skincare product. I find that my skin especially loves K-Beauty products, because so far, almost all worked well for my normal to dry, sometimes dehydrated skin.  Today I am writing my thoughts about cotton pads soaked into an essence – NEOGEN Dermalogy Real Cica Pad.

Neogen Dermalogy Real Cica Pad Review


This product is described as:

Skin Barrier Recovery + Calming Hydration + Skin Protecting + Dead Skin Peeling. A skin-calming recovery cica pad soothes the irritated and sensitized skin while reinforcing the skin barrier. Cica repair essence & PHA moisture peeling ingredient supplies skin-calming hydration while removing dead skin cells and excess sebum.



The product is packaged in a way that the cotton pads are soaked in an essence formulated with Centella asiatica extract (a.k.a. Cica).  Because it has a low pH of 5.83, these pads are suitable enough to use daily – as the instructions say: 1 pad 1 day routine! The plastic tub has a weight of 150mL with 90 pads inside, so you’re getting a lot for your money-the price on SokoGlam website is $20.00. The only thing that is weird is that the lid sometimes doesn’t close properly and I always have to double check it. So, have that in mind if traveling.

First thing that caught my eye was this: Free of potential irritants like parabens, artificial fragrance, and mineral oil. Then the star ingredients like: Centella Asiatica Extract, Asiaticoside, Asiatic Acid, Madecassic Acid, Madecassoside, Hyaluronic Acid, Ceramide NP (Ceramide 3). Just to name some of the benefits: Centella Asiatica is here to soothe the skin and calm it down, Hyaluronic Acid provides hydration and Madecassoide is good for preventing UV induced hyper-pigmentation.

Full ingredients list: Water, Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, Centella Asiatica Extract, Dipropylene Glycol, 1,2-Hexanediol, Asiaticoside, Asiatic Acid, Madecassic Acid, Madecassoside, Lactobionic Acid, Gluconolactone, Hyaluronic Acid, Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid, Sodium Hyaluronate, Octyldodecanol, Ceramide NP(Ceramide 3), Hydrogenated Lecithin, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Allantoin, Betaine, Panthenol, Cetearyl Olivate, Sorbitan Olivate, Glyceryl Caprylate, Ethylhexylglycerin, Tromethamine, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Xanthan Gum, Propanediol, Diglycerin, Citrus Aurantium Bergamia (Bergamot) Fruit Oil, Disodium EDTA.



I like the convenience and the simplicity of having already soaked pads. After cleansing my face, I just take one out, swipe it all over my face. Then I tap the essence into the skin and I am good to go with the next skincare step. These pads eliminate redness and inflammation and this help my skin looking better and healthier. Another plus it is that they help to promote collagen production. The formula contains hyaluronic acid which hydrates my skin and it is free of parabens, artificial fragrance, and mineral oil. What’s not to love?

Have you tried this or any similar product? What is your current favorite skincare item?

Until my next blog post…




NEO I VIEW<br>Pink Cactus Liftmax Knit Mask Review by Elaine

Pink Cactus Liftmax Knit Mask Review by Elaine

Neogen’s innovative thick, plush knit material masks have been the talk of the Kbeauty community since its launch in March 2017. The unique sweater-like, knitted-cotton material has passed the clinical human skin irritation test and proven to be non-irritating even on sensitive skin types.

I’ve received quite a few requests to test out this mask and a poll on my Instagram account showed that the majority of my readers are more curious about this pink cactus variant. I will be testing out the white truffle variant in a separate post.

Neogen Vita Duo Cream Review by The Glam Gamer

I don’t mind multi-step skin care routines. For each step is not only beneficial but a way to relax, pamper my skin and have some much needed me time. However, I won’t complain when skin care can be condensed into a double duty or multi-step product. 

Neogen Vita Duo Cream Joan Day Joan Night, $32, is a collaboration with beauty influencer Joan Kim, a popular YouTube leader in KBeauty, fashion and all things Korean. Cruelty free Neogen is one of her favorite brands so it makes sense that she would collab with them. The Vita Duo Cream comes in a container with 2 separate and generously sized compartments, one for each cream plus a spatula to aid in application. A protective inner plastic seal with each side labeled keeps the product fresh and protected.

Joan Day - Joan Night: The Dual Cream your skin needs for all-day care

That's how the Joan Day - Joan Night moisturizer was born, a Dual Cream containing two separate compartments, one for daytime use and one for nighttime use. The Day Cream is formulated with a Green Tea and Vitamin C combo that delivers intensive soothing and calming benefits for the skin while energizing and reinforcing it. On the other hand the Night Cream is formulated with lavender and Vitamin E which together help soothe and strengthen our skin's natural power.

Real Cica Micellar Oil & Foam Review by Bambi

I feel like 2018 is a Cica year - all the Cica products that we can see all around the place. This trend seems to be associated with K-beauty but it's not only about Korean brands that started this cult. There's always a reason why something becomes popular so I was positively surprised when I heard that Neogen has decided to make a series based on Centella Asiatica and release the Cica series. Currently, my double cleansing is based on Neogen Cica Micellar Cleansing Oil and Neogen Cica Micellar Cleansing Foam. How does it look like and why you should give a chance to this due?
