To be honest, there is nothing special about this Cica balm aside from calamine. I have tried other Cica balms in k-beauty. But this Cica balm has it's own good and not so impressive qualities. First, the good thing about this Cica balm is that it does not feel heavy at all. The texture of this Cica balm is light and once I apply on my face. It feels breathable and not tacky in comparison with other Cica balms like the Innisfree and Dr. Jarts. That is why I HIGHLY RECOMMENDED this Cica balm to oily skin types since the texture of this Cica balm is more likely a CREAM rather than a BALM. Based on my experience, it does not feel pore-clogging and somehow refreshing for my oily skin type and occasional skin sensitive skin condition. On the other hand, the not-so-impressive part of this Cica balm is that I still experience skin sensitivity and occasional break-out from time to time. I am not a chemist but I read a lot of blogs about skincare. Not to mention, I am a keen consumer when it comes to skincare. Since I am not a fan of essential oils to my oily and sensitive skin, I do not want to expose and damage further my oily and sensitive skin condition. Looking at the ingredient list, I am not impressed. Since this is marketed as a Cica balm intended for sensitive and irritated skin types, I just hope that Rovectin excluded Lavender Hybrida oil in their ingredient list. Instead, change it to other ingredients such as ceramides and panthenol as a skin barrier repairing agent. Like I mentioned earlier, I'm not a chemist but a keen consumer. Meaning to say, most Cica Balms in the K-beauty market includes panthenol and ceramides as part of their Cica balm formulations. And I don't see it here. All I can see is the infusion of calamine and an "active barrier complex." I know it sounds critical but as a consumer, I ask Rovectin to be more specific about the words they describe as "active barrier complex." As a consumer, I am curious about the ingredients they include in my Cica balm. It sounds broad to me. I don't want to discourage anyone. All I am saying is that just take this review with a grain of salt. Overall, do I like it? Yes. The texture is great. But the ingredient list is not impressive at all. For me, there is no special about this product. I am not sure about the healing properties of calamine. It sounds gimmicky to me. I believe that there is still room for improvement from a consumer's point of view. Why 4 stars and not below? My detailed review of this product is a reflection that I want this Cica Balm to succeed and improve because this is only texture and cosmetic elegance that my skin likes. THANK YOU. :)
So I've been having some redness and itchiness issues for awhile now and I wasn't entirely sure what was causing it. I thought at first it was the heat (super sensitive skin here) and since everyone has been quarantined for more than two weeks now, I thought my issues would gradually go away. It hasn't. So I thought to try out the Rovectin Cica Toner and Cica Balm and it has worked WONDERS for my skin. The redness completely stopped after just a day of using it. So has the itchiness. After this quarantine is over, will definitely purchase more.
