    Finding skincare products that work with your skin can be a struggle. The amount of times I’ve bought a skincare product hoping that it would do what it says on the bottle, only to have it do nothing (or worse, break me out), is frustrating. So, when I planned to review the Innisfree Cica Balm Imperfection Care with Bija Seed Oil face cream, I was very skeptical.


    The Innisfree Cica Balm Imperfection Care is a face cream that promises to strengthen the skin’s protective barrier and improve the look of uneven skin texture. That’s a tall order for my skin, as I have sensitive skin and acne scarring. The consistency of the cream is similar to that of a silicone pore-filling primer, which felt very nice to apply and went on smooth. I thought that because it felt so similar to a primer, the cream would clog my pores, but that could not have been further from the truth. I applied this both in the morning and at night, and I quickly noticed that my face felt smoother, even when I applied makeup on top of it. Sometimes, I will shave the peach fuzz off of my face to make my foundation look smoother, but I was genuinely surprised to find out that this cream ended up giving the same effect without having to shave.

I also noticed that I had less visible dry patches on my face in the mornings after applying the cream the night before. I am currently on a prescribed acne medication that dries out my skin immensely, and I found that not only did this Cica Balm cream help smooth over some of my dry patches, it helped lock in my moisturizer and other products that I put underneath it.


    To be honest, I was very pleasantly surprised with how the Innisfree Cica Balm Imperfection Care with Bija Seed Oil face cream worked on my face. I was not expecting a product to show almost immediate results that I was happy with. I am happy and relieved to know that this product works well under makeup, as well as on its own. I would recommend this product to anyone who could use a little help in improving their skin’s texture, or is having a hard time locking in moisture.
