Dr. Jart+’s Cicapair Tiger Grass Mask Is Like a Soothing Blanket for My Face

I have a confession: I’ve completely fallen off of doing a proper nightly skin-care routine. Much of it has to do with what seems like a pandemic-induced elimination of time. Hours and days just blur together. Thankfully, this year’s Best of Beauty Award testing gave me plenty of incentives to get my schedule and skin back in shape. Through the sea of products that I put to work, a gem emerged to meet my ongoing skin woes: Dr. Jart+’s Tiger Grass Sleepair Intensive Mask.  

Before diving into what makes this mask so great, and why I love it — let me first give you a very brief history of my nightly skin-care routine. I wash my face, slather on face oil, and go to bed. That’s it. End of story. However, over the years as my skin needs have evolved, I’ve slowly added steps and products to the to-dos. I’ll stick on pimple patches when needed, try retinol serums, eye creams, lip treatments, you name it. I’ve found that what I’m able to stick to most consistently are multitasking products — and Dr. Jart+’s Tiger Grass Sleepair Intensive Mask has been a pleasant cure-all for my ongoing skin concerns. 

The universal thread that remains a constant is my skin’s desire for moisture — and this is one of the biggest benefits of this new addition to Dr. Jart+’s Cicapair collection. The sleep mask looks to star ingredient tiger grass, also known as cica or Centella asiatica — a leafy green herb that has used for centuries for its regenerative powers — to attract moisture to the skin and deeply soothe irritation. 

Board-certified dermatologist Shari Marchbein, who is based in New York City previous explained to Allure that cica not only helps brighten skin, but also increases hydration in the top layer. “Cica boosts circulation and blood flow to the skin, decreases moisture loss, and aids in cellular repair,” she says. “Skin, therefore, appears more hydrated and less inflamed.” This formula in particular also contains moisturizing glycerin and skin-smoothing niacinamide to add an extra layer of nourishment.
