At Cosmoprof in Las Vegas a couple of weeks ago, the world of skin care and beauty products that I thought I knew about increased exponentially (get it? EXPO-nentially? Never mind, lol.). So many new companies to explore!
Among them was Nacific, a Korean skincare brand. The reps generously gave me three full-sized products in their “Greenpair Plus Clear” line–a toner, a serum and a clear cream (which is more like a gel). The Greenpair Plus Clear line of products focuses on sensitive, irritable, acne-prone dry skin. The main ingredient is Green Cica 3 aka Centella Asiatica, a plant that grows in Asia and has culinary and medicinal uses. It is known to help with wound healing and contact dermatitis, for example.
First I tried the toner, and right away felt a difference in my skin. It was as if the toner sucked up all the oil on my face but did not dry it out. Before using the toner, it is important to shake it well so the ingredients can mix properly. Then I used the serum, which is not oily but is absorbed very quickly into the skin. My face didn’t feel sticky or dry, which is a big plus. I then applied the cream/gel. This was a bit stickier, but it absorbs well.
All the products are fragrance-free, and after applying you can forget you did anything because it feels so–naked as if I hadn’t put anything on! The number one thing I noticed was that my face did not feel oily and felt balanced throughout the day. I’m not sure if it calmed my skin as it claims to, but it definitely helps with sebum control. The toner is my favorite since I felt it working on my skin immediately. I do recommend a moisturizer afterward, although not terribly drying this product line doesn’t really hydrate the skin.
I’ve been using these products for a week and will continue to use them to see if and how it affects my skin in the long run. So far, I have to say it is great at controlling my oily skin!
Thank you to Nacific and their awesome team members I met at Cosmoprof!
