Neogen Dermalogy Real Cica Pad

If you want to reduce redness, boost your skin’s collagen levels and get a visibly smoother complexion, the Neogen Dermalogy Real Cica Pad is your new beauty saviour. Thanks to Neogen, it’s never been easier to achieve the enviable dewy glow of your favourite Korean pop idol or actor. Something I’m eternally grateful for.

Regularly exfoliating is one of the best ways of looking after your skin. However, this isn’t always a practical option for gals with acne-prone or sensitive skin. Not anymore. Trust me, if you want enviable healthy skin, these pads are worth buying.

You may know from reading my blog that I’m always keen to have porcelain skin like my favourite Korean skin care inspirations Seo Kang Joon, Lee Dong-Wook, Gong Yoo and BTS, hence why I couldn’t wait to try the Neogen Dermalogy Real Cica Pad.


Neogen Dermalogy Real Cica Pad ingredients

Neogen Dermalogy Real cica Pad for sensitive skin

Real Cica Pad

These pads are soaked in essence containing some of the finest Korean skin care ingredients like centella asiatica extract (also known as cica). Known for its soothing and anti-inflammatory properties, it’s packed with vitamins C, A, B1, B2 and niacin to help tackle signs of premature ageing and promote a brighter complexion. 

Because they have a low pH of 5.83, they’re gentle enough to use every day. Unlike other chemical exfoliators made with alpha hydroxy acids (AHA), which can irritate sensitive skin if overused, the Neogen Dermalogy Real Cica Pad uses a mild polyhydroxy acid (more commonly known as PHA) gluconolactone. The smaller molecule size of this PHA allows the product to be absorbed slower, thus reducing the risk of skin irritation.

Gluconolactone promotes cell turnover and helps soften and soothe dry or dehydrated skin and eliminate moisture loss. Paraben-free and formulated without artificial ingredients, these pads also contain hyaluronic acid to hydrate the skin and keep it moist, as well as ceramide to help skin retain water, while repairing the skin’s natural barrier.

According to Lab Muffin, another ingredient, Madecassoide is good for preventing UV induced hyperpigmentation. And you know I’m obsessed with anything that protects my skin against UV damage.


Why I love the Neogen Dermalogy Real Cica Pad

The skin-calming cica pad quickly gets to work at gently exfoliating my skin and soothing any irritation. Because the pads are made from incredibly soft super fine fibre, they don’t feel harsh on my skin as they remove dead skin cells and excess sebum. Sounds gross but oh so satisfying.

In addition to giving me a glowing complexion, the Neogen Dermalogy Real Cica Pad helps eliminate redness and inflammation. Perfect, if like me, you have rosacea. They’re also ideal for acne-prone skin.

The concentrated formula provides instant hydration and strengthens the barrier of my skin. If you’re searching for an exfoliator with anti-ageing properties, you’ll be pleased to know these pads also promote collagen production.

Although the pads don’t deeply exfoliate the pores around my nose, I absolutely adore them! After all, I don’t want to use a harsh exfoliator on my skin every day. My skin is waaaay too sensitive for that!

They’re perfect for days when I need to exfoliate but my sensitive skin can’t handle my regular AHA.


How to use the Neogen Dermalogy Real Cica Pad

First, cleanse your skin (I love the DHC Deep Cleansing Oil). Next, gently wipe one of the pads (using the embossed side) across the face and neck in the direction of the skin’s texture. To boost the absorption of the Neogen Dermalogy Real Cica Pad, tap the essence into the skin.

NEO I VIEW<br>White Truffle Serum In Oil Drop<br>REVIEW BY SARAH OH

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.
