Consistency/ Texture / fragrance / Absorbability:
Rovectin Cica Care Balm has a light weight creamy texture and spreads nicely on skin and sinks into the skin completely without any stickiness. It does have a subtle lavender oil- fragrance, which goes away completely after the application.
Overall I did like it but didn’t get amazed by it and my final conclusion might not sound pleasant but more like I wanted to go head-over-heel for this product but it ended up another way around. Actually, whenever I write a detailed review of any product here on my blog, I also keep in mind the price, general skin concerns, and overall performance of a product.
Okay, let me stop explaining myself and express my view on the Rovectin Cica care balm. It didn’t react on my skin, in fact, it did calm my skin and help in reducing redness. I have been testing this cream from January (winter) but at that time I didn’t find it moisturising enough so kept it back in my stash and again opened it in June and used it consistently throughout July (monsoon) and this tube is almost an empty now. Therefore, my opinion expressed below is the final one.
- It didn’t irritate my dry, sensitive, and acne-prone skin.
- It sinks in quite fast without any stickiness. This is the reason that I found it perfect for this humid summer-monsoon season.
- Did help in reducing redness on the skin and kept my skin calm.
- Overall it didn’t wow me much; I actually had very high expectations from it after my mind-blowing experience with the Rovectin Aqua Range products I have used and also for a similar and lower price I have used better CICA products.
- Didn’t work on my acne scars, I honestly didn’t expect it to, but mentioning this as the product claims it.
- Has lavender oil (Essential oil) in it. Now this isn’t a bad thing and I didn’t have a problem with this, but since the product targets the sensitive skin, I wish they kept the formulation 100% Essential oil-free.
Do I recommend it? Yes, I recommend it to people who have combination-oily skin and who have frequent skin redness or irritation.
Will I repurchase? Nope, I will not.
I am not a dermatologist or a licensed aesthetician, but I do have sufficient experience and knowledge which I gained by testing multiple products and by self-exploration, based on that, I am sharing the information here and what works for me may not work the same way your skin.
