Xycos Cica Green Serum Review

I realized I’ve been using a lot of skincare products with Centella Asiatica lately. Another one I’ll be sharing my thoughts with is this Cica Green Serum gifted to me by a Kbeauty brand Xycos

Xycos Cica Green Serum

This serum helps with pores, acne and dullness. It’s also perfect for people who have sensitive skin.

Key Ingredients:
  • Cica or Centella Asiatica - for soothing and anti-inflammation
  • Spirulina - eliminate impurities and encourage cell renewal 
  • Avocado -  to moisturize and boost collagen production. 
  • Higher on the ingredients list are Ceramide and Green Tea.

🔎 Observation: A handy pump container holds the 50 ml serum. It comes with a cap to avoid accidentally pressing the bottle when not in use. The fragrance has a strong scent of Tea Tree in combination with Lavender oil and to me, it resembles Grandpa’s perfume. The serum is concentrated but feels lightweight and a bit runny. My skin can tolerate alcohol in skincare but people who are sensitive with it must take note that this product has one.

It's good because...

  1. it gets absorbed by skin well.
  2. it doesn’t leave a sticky residue.
  3. my skin feels so hydrated after using this serum.
  4. it helps calm redness on my skin.

❗️ Even better if... I don’t like how it smells. I have pretty much strong tolerance with fragrance but the scent of this serum lingers and puts me off.

✨When it comes to the effects on my skin, I am satisfied with the serum’s moisturizing and soothing claims. But sadly, its overpowering scent prevents me from using this more often in my routine. Xycos Cica Green Serum costs around $20 at www.xycos.com. I am interested to try more products from the brand so I’m hoping they will be accessible to my country soon.

Xycos is a sister brand of Coxir and Skinhouse. Have you tried anything from these brands?
