Review: Cicapair Cream (Dr Jart+) vs Cica Cream (VT Cosmetics) Comparison

Kbeauty Skincare Comparison Review - Dr Jart+ Cicapair and VT Cosmetics Cica Cream

Centella Asiatica, also known as Cica or Tiger Grass, is one of my all time favourite skincare ingredients – it’s pretty much a god send for sensitized or acne prone skin as it helps to calm and heal at the same time. I’ve used a lot of products formulated with Cica but, to be honest, I can never have enough! For this review, I will be doing something a little bit different and actually comparing two very popular Cica creams – the VT Cosmetics Cica Cream (which I have previously reviewed here but will discuss again) and the Dr.Jart+ Cicapair Cream.

Both of these products are currently available on StyleKorean, with the VT Cosmetics Cica Cream at USD$14.30 (on sale from USD$28.60) and the Dr.Jart+ Cicapair Cream at USD$25 (on sale from USD$42). Aside from the different price points, I also think that both of these have very different formulas that would be better for contrasting skin types – I have my personal preferences, of course, but you need to decide what’s best for you too!

So, before you make any decision on what to get – let’s get right into this review!

Review: Cica Care Collection (VT Cosmetics)

VT Cosmetics Cica Skincare Line Kbeauty Review StyleKorean - Cica Skin, Cica Cream, Soothing Mask, Sleeping Mask

If you’re a fan of Centella Asiatica, then you’ll be very excited about the Cica Care Collection from VT Cosmetics! I was first introduced to the brand via their makeup but it didn’t exactly blow me away. I’ve been looking to give them a second chance though and I’m pleasantly surprised this time! This collection is all about Centella (also known as Cica) – it’s one of my favourite soothing skincare ingredients and I’m always working it into my routine.

The Cica Care Collection is actually quite extensive but I’ll be reviewing four products: the Cica Daily Soothing Mask, Cica Cream, Cica Skin and the VT Cica Sleeping Mask. All of these are available on the StyleKorean website but I would actually recommend checking out the main VT Cosmetics page instead – they are so many other products ranging from masks to sun care.

I’ve been using these products since December last year, so it’s been a decent amount of time now. Let’s get into this review!

Review: Lip Rouge & Powerdation (VT Cosmetics – Part III)

VT Cosmetics BTS Kbeauty Review BB Cosmetics

We are at my final post for the VT Cosmetics reviews! I hope that you have been enjoying these so far and that they have been informative for you in choosing what to buy or to skip out on. In general, I have found the brand to be a bit of a hit-or-miss so I would definitely be looking into reviews for anything I buy from them.

For the last post here, I want to be sharing two more cosmetic products from them and – once again, and quite predictably – there was one that I liked and another that I will not be using again. First off is the Super Tempting Lip Rouge, which I have in two shades with two different finishes, and then there is the Gloria Powerdation which is a matte finish liquid foundation.

All of these products, as well as even more from the VT Cosmetics line and other brands are available at BB Cosmetic, and that you can also use my code for a little 5% discount – QAL3F6ZA8YZ – it isn’t much but personally, I never say no to saving money.

So, let’s get right into this review!

Review: Face Fixer & Gel Mist (VT Cosmetics – Part II)

VT Cosmetics BTS Kbeauty Review BB Cosmetics

Sit yourself down and take a (comfy) seat because this is going to be a long post! I was originally planning on write this as two seperate posts but, after trying out both of these products from VT Cosmetics found that my thoughts on the two products are so different – because I love one of them so much that it’s my new HG, and then dislike the other one so much that I don’t think I will be finishing it up at all.

If you read my Part I post, you will note that I found products from this brand to be very hit-or-miss, so today I want to share with you a product that I would recommend you rush to buy and another one that really doesn’t live up to expectations.

I received the Super Tempting Face Fixer and the Born Natural Gel Mist from BB Cosmetic to review for you – and obviously, everything that I write is 100% honest. If you’d like to get these products or want to check out more from the VT Cosmetics line, then check out their website!

Review: Super Tempting Highlight & Shade Palette (VT Cosmetics – Part I)

VT Cosmetics BTS Kbeauty Review BB Cosmetics

Following this post, there’s actually going to be a handful of VT Cosmetics products. They are a brand that I had heard a lot about in the past even before they started collaborating with BTS. For me, although I am a kpop fan, I am not a BTS fan, so my review of these are completely unbiased and I’ll only be discussing the actual products.

That all being said, I have had mixed experiences with VT Cosmetics – some products which I thought were pretty good, while others I didn’t like so much. These two, the Super Tempting Highlight Palette and the Super Tempting Shade Palette, fall a bit little in between (which I will go into below).

I received these, and all of the other VT Cosmetic products too, from BB Cosmetic who were super generous and sent me over so many things from the range to try out! Jump on over to their website if you want to get these ‘super tempting’ palettes – or anything else from the brand. They offer free shipping worldwide with no minimum purchase and you can also use my affiliate code for 5% off: QAL3F6ZA8YZ

But, before you do that, lets get into this review!
