Thank you to @meebak.seoul for sending me your Cica & Vitamin C Serum (normally $22.97, but on sale for $13.97 for 1.1 ounce – https://meebak.com/products/cica-vitamin-c-serum) to test out! I have tried cica as a skincare ingredient once in the past (https://katierobisonblogs.com/index.php/2020/09/19/skincare-saturday-laneigeus-cica-sleeping-mask/), so it made me very hopeful for what my experience would be with this product!
What it claims:
🔘 This brightening serum with cica restores the moisture barrier in dry, irritated skin and infuses essential nutrients deep into its layers to reveal a lit-from-within look
🔘 Two forms of vitamin C brighten your overall complexion
🔘 Irish moss and green tea extracts offer extra protection and restoration, while panthenol and cica replenishes moisture and promotes a healthy skin barrier
🔘 Adenosine prevents signs of aging to enhance the resulting youthful glow
🔘 No parabens, sulphates, phthalates, or animal testing

“Born with the philosophy of gifting happy, healthy skin for all, Meebak Seoul is one of the first Korean beauty brands to focus on a direct-to-consumer approach in the US. Heeji Kim, founder and CEO, spent many hours a day in front of a computer screen, which she worried would stress and damage her skin and health. As a lover of skincare products and skin pampering beauty routines, she was always looking for new ways to improve her skin.”

For starters, I love the packaging. It’s simple, yet looks and feels high end! As for the product itself, the texture is so unique! It feels like an oil/serum hybrid and I thoroughly enjoy that! It gives me the moisturization of an oil, yet the lightweight feel of a serum – which makes it perfect for wearing under makeup. Whether you have dry or oily skin, I think this would work well for you. If you have been interested in trying a new serum and for a really great price, I recommend looking into this one!
