Skin & Lab Dr. Troubless+ Medicica Calming Cream

Ever since I got trapped in a vicious cycle of acne, my skincare stash saw a number of new, Cica-oriented products being hauled in. Swati & I have been practising low-buys for a couple of years now but seeing how my skin's needs had changed drastically, I needed to build a routine that focused more on taking care of them and that's how I decided to purchase the Skin & Lab Medicica Calming Cream.

This product has a really light texture & contains some cica capsules. These are basically encapsulated active ingredients that burst upon the skin to ensure that we receive them in their purest, most potent form. The capsules are minute, cannot really be felt on the skin and gently burst when you massage the gel in.

I was particularly happy with how light the Medicica cream feels post application, but still manages to ensure that my dry skin is taken care of (at least in summer). It's quite hydrating, with just a hint of moisturization to seal it all in. This means that I could use it all throughout the hotter months without my skin ever feeling overly tacky. It also layers well under sunscreen.

Apart from pure Centella extract, this cream is fortified with an extra dose of all 4 biologically active compounds of centella. Madecassoside and madecassic acid really boost its calming properties, whereas Asiatic acid and asiaticoside bring and additional reparative and anti-ageing benefit.

Skin & Lab's Medicica cream does a good job of reducing underlying redness within the skin and calming inflammation down. Even though I still get breakouts because of my hormonal imbalance, the Medicica cream helps to keep them in check. Cica is undoubtedly the best ingredient for my stressed-out skin, and this cream is going to be a staple in my stash.

Moreover, due to how breathable it feels on the skin and the neutral finish, I think it's going to be a top pick for anyone with oily skin looking to reap the benefits of Cica. Whether it be for acne, sensitivity, a compromised skin barrier, or even eczema or superficial wounds, Centella has calming and healing benefits for all.

Price : 19$ for 50ml
