Launched online in 2005, Dr. Jart+ is centered on one philosophy: powered by science, inspired by art. The Korean skin care brand was founded by dermatologist Dr. Sung Jae Jung and architect Chin Wook Lee, and the fusion of their two backgrounds has helped the brand achieve its balance of quality formulas and signature packaging. Dr. Jart+ develops formulas that deliver effective treatment and visible results, formulating skin care solutions for different needs by using advanced technology and safe ingredients.
The words most heavily associated with Dr. Jart+ are likely “Cicapair Tiger Grass,” and this fan-fave collection has not only a mysterious name but also a reputation that precedes it. Powered by centella asiatica complex, which is also known as tiger grass, the Cicapair Tiger Grass collection effectively calms sensitive skin, reduces redness and soothes irritation. Its most popular products include the Cicapair Tiger Grass Serum, Cicapair Tiger Grass Cream, Cicapair Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment and Cicapair Tiger Grass Camo Drops. Both the serum and cream are formulated with Jartbiome, Dr. Jart+’s patented microbiome complex that strengthens and balances skin’s defenses against dryness, as well as Centella Rx to soothe and protect sensitive skin and Cicabond to repair dry skin. The Color Correcting Treatment comes with SPF 30 protection to protect skin from environmental aggressors while correcting redness. It’s infused with sodium, potassium, calcium and magnesium to improve moisture levels and restore fatigued skin, as well as houttuynia cortada and yarrow to strengthen skin. Finally, the Camo Drops doubles as a revitalizing serum and color corrector that leaves skin glowing. It’s enhanced with an antioxidant green energy complex that energizes tired skin and protects skin with SPF 44. If you’re planning to incorporate multiple products from this collection in your routine, you can consider using the serum, cream and treatment consecutively after cleansing, while the Camo Drops can be used after cleanser and cream.
Equally popular and core to the brand’s reputation is the Ceramidin range, which uses patented 5 Cera Complex to replenish dry skin with deep moisture, restoring strength and repairing the skin barrier. Two of the most famous products from the collection are the Ceramidin Cream and the Ceramidin Liquid. The Ceramidin Cream provides long-lasting hydration, improves the condition of irritated skin barriers and shields skin from moisture loss, making it suitable for those in extreme climates or those experiencing dryness, itchiness or roughness. The Ceramidin Liquid is a lightweight moisturizing toner enriched with panthenol and a calming complex of fig, centella asiatica and phyto extracts. Suitable for those with dry, flaky, cracked or rough skin, it leaves skin feeling supple and moisturized. The Ceramidin Liquid can serve as a daily moisturizer for those with oily skin, while those with drier skin should follow with the Ceramidin Cream to maximize effects.
In addition to Dr. Jart+’s Cicapair Tiger Grass and Ceramidin collections, the brand is probably most well-known for its BB cream, sunscreen, moisturizer and mask ranges. If you’re unsure about which Dr. Jart+ products to get, below is a breakdown of some of its bestsellers.
Combining makeup and skin care, Dr. Jart+ was among the first to introduce BB cream to the United States. The brand’s most popular choice is its Beauty Balm, a cult favorite that offers natural coverage while leaving skin dewy and glowing. The all-in-one product moisturizes dehydrated skin, blurs uneven complexions, improves signs of aging, and protects skin from UV damage with SPF 45. For full coverage, the BB Dis-A-Pore targets those with oily and combination skin or those experiencing enlarged pores, textured skin, uneven complexion, redness, dark spots, fine lines and wrinkles. It’s formulated with okra fruit extract with mastic gum and non-nano powder particles to improve skin’s firmness and control excess sebum production. Its lightweight, silky smooth texture delivers SPF 50+ protection and moisture for a non-drying matte finish. In addition to concealing blemishes and uneven skin tone, the Black Label Beauty Balm offers anti-aging effects and calms blemish-prone, irritated skin with botanical actives.
Although Dr. Jart+’s BB creams already offer SPF protection, that’s not enough to completely protect from the sun’s harmful UV rays, which is crucial to maintaining youthful and healthy skin. No skin care routine is complete without a powerful sunscreen, and two of Dr. Jart+’s bestselling sun care options are Every Sun Day and Day Tint. Every Sun Day comes in a fluid and mineral sunscreen form, both of which offer SPF 50+. The former is a lightweight liquid product that doesn’t leave a white cast, preventing damage from the sun and pollution while moisturizing and cooling skin. While the fluid SPF version is suitable for all skin types, the mineral sunscreen is ideal for sensitive skin. Coming in a hypoallergenic, waterproof formula, it protects skin by reflecting and scattering UV rays. Its formula also includes zinc oxide to soothe and guard sensitive skin, and porous powder to absorb sebum and oil for a lightweight powdery finish.
In addition to protecting skin from UV rays, moisturizing daily is also essential for all skin types – even oily skin! Dr. Jart+’s multifunctional moisturizers not only nourish skin with much-needed hydration, they also brighten and even out complexions and leave skin feeling supple and soothed. V7 Toning Light is formulated with seven different vitamins, pearl extract, niacinamide, white jade, beta-glucan and licorice extract to brighten, moisturize and soothe skin as well as improve elasticity. The V7 Priming Moisturizer is infused with patented Multi-Vitamin Complex and tomato leaf cell extract to hydrate skin, protect against environmental stressors and blur pores and imperfections. The Water Drop Hydrating Moisturizer is a gel-cream full of brightening and nourishing extracts like lemon peel, bergamot and sandalwood oil as well as hyaluronic acid, which plumps skin and smooths out fine lines. Finally, the Water Fuse Ultimate Hydro Gel is a gel-cream that creates a water cushion to keep skin hydrated and energized all day long while visibly brightening the complexion.
No Korean skin care brand would be complete without its very own signature masks. If you’re wondering which mask to try, Dr. Jart+’s instantly recognizable Shake & Shot masks are a great place to start. They’re well known for their distinct packaging: a vividly colored cup with a “straw” that serves as a spatula and an attention-grabbing 3D lid designed to look like a sleeping baby. The innovative rubbery modeling mask penetrates skin deeply with high-potency ingredients and comes in a number of formulations with different effects on skin, including soothing, hydrating, firming and brightening. To use the mask, mix the booster and ampoule in the cup, close the lid, shake until fully mixed, and then apply on cleansed and toned skin. Read more about the effects and usage of the mask here! Equally fun and innovative is the Dermask Ultra Jet Porecting Solution, a bubbling charcoal sheet mask that cleanses and purifies pores. Compared to the Shake & Shot mask, the Porecting Solution mask comes in more minimal packaging and is rather simple to use. All you have to do is apply on cleansed and toned face, and leave on for 10-20 minutes after the sheet starts bubbling.
