We all know, Centella Asiatica is an amazing ingredient for calming the skin. Hence when I came across It’s Skin Tiger Cica Calming serum on Jolse.com, I couldn’t help but purchase it immediately. I got this almost 4 months back and now I’ve experienced it enough to share my thoughts.
Price: Around Rs.2000 for 80ml product. The serum needs to be finished within 12 months after opening the bottle.
Availability: I am pretty sure I got this from jolse.com but I am not able to locate the product anymore there. Hence sharing yesstyle.com link.
Packaging: It’s Skin Tiger Cica Calming serum comes in sturdy plastic packaging with a pump dispenser. The packaging is very apt and travel-friendly. I’ve been taking this everywhere on my trips, be it Hyderabad or Malaysia as my only moisturizer for the day as well as night time.
Ingredients: Centella Asiatica Extract, Propanediol, Butylene Glycol, Cyclomethicone, Glycerin, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Cyclopentasiloxane, Glycereth-26, Panthenol, Dimethiconol, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acrylolydimethyl Taurate/VP Copolymer, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, PPG-26-Buteth-62, Xylitylglucoside, Anhydroxylitol, Water, Xylitol, Caprylyl Glycol, Citrus Aurantium Bergamia (Bergamot) Fruit Oil, Citrus Limon (Lemon) Peel Oil, Disodium EDTA, Glucose, Ethylhexylglcerin, Cananga Odorata Flower Oil, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Cymbopogon Citratus Leaf Oil, Eucalyptu Globulus Leaf Oil, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil, Polyglyceryl-10 Oleate, Medecassoside, Madecassic Acid, Asiatic Acid, Asiaticoside.

And a blend of essential oils.
My verdict on It’s Skin Tiger Cica Calming serum:
The consistency of It’s Skin Tiger Cica Calming serum is light lotion like which melts into the skin as soon as applied. It feels quite moisturizing with a burst of hydration. I love how it doesn’t feel greasy but is moisturizing enough to be used as a stand-alone moisturizer. Those having very dry skin might feel the need to pair it up with other products but this will suit most skin types without compromising on the moisturization. Coming to the efficacy, this serum has really helped my skin calm down and helped a lot when it was irritated. It didn’t aggravate my active acne. I had carried this during my Malaysia trip and despite the sweat, beach weather and endless pool hours, my skin never missed the fully fledged skincare routine which I follow religiously at my home. I can easily pair it up with my sunscreen and call it a day!
There is a catch though, if your skin is sensitive towards essential oils then you need to do a patch test before making a purchase. All in all, I am very happy with my purchase. I hope the entire line of It’s Skin is made available at Nykaa so that we can get easy access to such amazing products here in India.
