We all know the trouble of having sensitive skin. You want to have good skin, water it with tons of products like it’s your own baby and bam, you get a breakout. Sensitive skin is always prone to breaking out, especially when using different skincare products. Use too much you might get an adverse reaction, use too little you might get a breakout. So what’s the deal with sensitive skin?
Introducing the HG of sensitive skin ingredients – centella asiatica. It also comes in other names such as madecassoside and cica. So why the hype? Centella when applied topically, is great for healing wounds. It is extremely good as an anti-inflammatory product.
If your skin is prone to redness, irritation and acne-prone, this is for you.
- Fade acne scars, pigmentation
- Moisturize, lightweight
- Heal moisture barrier of the skin
- Soothes, calm down skin
- Reduce redness
Made with 100% Centella Asiatica Extract, this ampoule is the perfect, purest form of centella goodness all sensitive skin needs. Breaking the ingredients down, it actually contains 40% Madecassic acid, 30% Asiatic acid, 30% Asiaticoside. Still, this does not contain any unnecessary ingredients and is the perfect, safest, irritant-free form of a Centella product.
It comes in a large 100ml frosted glass ampoule bottle. The bottle is very sturdy and of course, the ampoule dropper itself is really long and allows for absorption of the product really easily.
The product itself is clear and transparent. Viscosity is really similar to water. It is scentless and feels really lightweight, hydrating and refreshing on the skin. I like to use about 2-3 drops on my face and it immediately calms down my usual red, sensitive skin in Malaysia’s humid weather.
I also want to mention that this product is really multi-purpose. You can use it in multiple ways, not just on your face as an ampoule.
- Intensive Face mask
I like to use two cotton pads and soak them entirely with this ampoule, then leave it on my face for about 10 minutes. I use this method to really calm down my skin and let the product sit and soak up into my skin. Sometimes the heat in Malaysia and the dust everywhere makes my skin really itchy and sensitive, so this is my favorite method ever.
- Mist spray
You can mix this ampoule with water, in about a ratio of 3:7 and put in a spray bottle (I got mine from Daiso). Use it as a travel mist bottle anywhere you go.
- Body Acne lotion
Mix about 5:5 ratio with body lotion and apply all over your back and chest. Surely this can help calm down, moisturize, soothe my often acne-ridden body as well!
IN A NUTSHELL,
- Soothe and calm down skin
- Moisturize, lightweight
- Suitable for sensitive, acne-prone skin
- Slightly reduces redness
- Multi-purpose product
- Made with 100% Centella extract
- Might not be moisturizing enough as a standalone product, however you can actually pair the cream from the same line in your routine
All in all, I really liked this product and I find that a lot of people with sensitive, acne-prone skin would benefit tremendously from this product. This is made with 100% Centella extract and would be really great to heal, soothe and calm down the skin, especially in humid weather. I really like how it’s a multi-purpose product too and love using it as an intensive mask. Although I do feel that if your skin is normal, really good you probably won’t benefit much from this product. For the majority of us struggling with bad skin, this might be your holy grail.
