Why Dr Jart + Cicapair Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment Keeps Selling Out
I've gone to great lengths to get my hands on a sold-out beauty product. Let's put it this way: When the OLEHENRIKSEN Banana Bright Eye Creme had been sold out for months, I called the spa location for daily updates and even tried to bribe a Sephora employee to let me buy her unopened jar from home. (Btw, it's now available online here. 10/10, would recommend.)
Recently, my search for the sold-out Dr. Jart + Cicapair Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment SPF 30 ($52) has required the same amount of dedication. It's not that I always want what I can't have. It's just that people are going batsh*t crazy over it online and it seems to be for a good reason.
The entire Cicapair line includes an ingredient called Centella Asiatica, or Tiger Grass. (Not to be confused with Tiger's Blood, that's for Charlie Sheen.) It's an herb that is found in Asia, rich in saponins, which are like nature's anti-inflammatories. It also contains chlorophyll—the plant ingredient that forms a protective layer from environmental aggressors. In fact, the name itself stems from real tigers, who roll around in it to heal their "war" wounds. Maybe it's just me, but I feel like if Tiger Grass can do all that, it can probably handle my patches of seasonally dry skin and redness.
Also? I have acne-prone skin and scars to prove it. That's why a healing CC cream means everything to me. The fact that these amazing Sephora reviews for the Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment cover all my skin concerns in one is PRICELESS. Go ahead, just take my money.
Thankfully, not ALL hope is lost. You can still find the following Dr Jart + Cicapair products on the shelves or online at Sephora:
As for the Color Correcting Treatment, I'll continue to sit at my laptop and refresh the product tab on the website. Reading the positive reviews has felt like I'd been cut from the best sorority on recruitment night. Sephora, Dr. Jart +...please just let me in!
