Hello Readers!! Welcome to my first post of the year 2018 and, wishing you all a very happy and healthy new year!! For today’s post I am gonna review Centella enriched product. Centella Asiatica is one of my most favourite skincare ingredients. It’s safe, suits every skin type, calms down irritated skin, helps in healing the skin, strengthens skin barrier and improves overall skin condition over the time! So, adding products with such ingredient shouldn’t hurt anyone but RIP Wallet! 😑 The product is “By Wishtrend TECA 1% Barrier Cream”, recently launched on wishtrend. 🤗
Now, what makes this product different from many other centella asiatica product is that it’s also works on dry patches on face! Apart from skin healing benefits, it also aids in reducing skin dryness!
Disclaimer: Wishtrend was generous enough to send me this product for reviewing purpose and my opinion expressed here are solely based on my experience over the tested period of almost one month! ✍️
By Wishtrend TECA 1% Barrier Cream is suitable for all skin types. It is especially curated for sensitive skin.
Not Suitable for:
By Wishtrend TECA 1% Barrier Cream is not suitable to anyone allergic to the ingredients used in it.
Ingredients List and CosDNA Analysis:
It pretty much contains very basic active ingredients. TECA is a purified extract of Centella asiatica. TECA is a standardised amalgam of “Asiaticoside (anti-aging benefit), Madecassic acid( anti-inflammatory benefit) and Asiatic acid (Collagen synthesis)” (Hehehe! Sound very appealing??). Allantoin works on dry and rough skin. As from Cosdna Analysis, it does contain very few ingredients that can slightly irritate skin in some rare unfortunate cases! But I wonder, why the active ingredients are at the bottom of the list! I wish they were on top!! 🤔
How to use:
By Wishtrend TECA 1% Barrier Cream is a spot treatment product but it can be used as a face treatment cream for dry skin. I have been using it both ways! Recently I have cut down on number of skincare products (My skin goes crazy during winter)! I have been keeping it pretty simple!
Night Time skincare Routine: (This is also my morning skincare routine, except the Vitamin drop!)
Klairs Supple preparation toner > Whamisa Eye Essence > Klairs Vitamin C drop > By Wishtrend TECA 1% Barrier Cream > Innisfree Olive Real Power Cream
I am mixing it with Cosrx Centella Cream in 1:1 ratio and then use it on active breakouts. This calms the acne to certain extent.
I just use it alone on post acne popped disaster!! For me the acne patches only worsen the situation, so I apply a thick layer of By Wishtrend TECA 1% Barrier Cream at last step of skincare. The best thing is it sets, adhere and conceals the irritated spot until washed next morning. 😘 This is how it is supposed to be used!
Tip: This cream goes really well with the exfoliators. It can be the best paired with Vitamin C products! Can be used during day and night!
By Wishtrend TECA 1% Barrier Cream comes in a small sleek travel friendly tube type packaging! The packaging is simple and yet an eye catcher! 😍 I like how a tapered point is provided for dispensing the rightly required quantity!
Expiry Period: Has an after opening expiry period of 12 months.
Quantity: Comes in only 30 ml quantity. (Its a spot treatment!!).
Price: It is exclusively available on Wishtrend.com for an amount of $27.5.

By Wishtrend TECA 1% Barrier Cream has a consistency of that of a thick balm! Even though it is really thick, it is considerably non-sticky and blends well! Guess what it is absolutely fragrance free!
By Wishtrend TECA 1% Barrier Cream does take a little extra time to get absorbed but once its sucked in, it doesn’t interfere with the foundation or BB Cream. In fact, it makes the application very easy (For normal to dry skin).
Since I already have few favourite spot treatment products, I took the time of almost one month before coming to any conclusion. Meanwhile I did have few breakouts and tested this product over them and made the conclusion for my Dry Sensitive skin, as mentioned below:
- Travel friendly packaging. It’s a spill proof!!
- Good alternative to Pimple patches (for skin sensitive to adhesive patches!).
- Calms skin post exfoliation.
- Very moisturizing. (It is not a moisturizer but can be used for dry skin).
- Soothes irritated skin.
- Worked on small zits.
- Helps in healing the popped pimple faster. (To certain extent! Nothing Magical!)
- Paraben free.
- Fragrance free.
- Life saver for a dry skin! Works well on irritated dry patches!
- Didn’t see much of scar lightening (Its claims to!!).
- Also, saw no results on painful angry red breakouts!
Do I recommend it? Yes! To all sensitive acne prone skin. It’s worth trying!
Will I repurchase? Maybe in the future! Because I like how travel friendly it is! A good light weight SOS Product is a must! Skin disaster occurs especially while travelling! 😱✈
By Wishtrend TECA 1% Barrier Cream is an excellent product! It’s just that, for what claims it made and reviews of few of the users raised my expectation bar, but alas, I did not find it better than two of my favourites Klairs Blue cream and Cosrx Centella Cream but this doesn’t mean it will not work magic on others. It can be a great spot treatment for whom cosrx and klairs failed! 😉 Its Just in terms of price and performance on my dry skin I prefer the other two!!
That’s all Folks!
