Have you heard of Urang new Cica Smoothing Ampoule? When I first found out about their new cica product, I was shook. If you follow me for a while, you’ll know cica is one of my favorite skincare ingredients. I have a lot of skincare loves, and cica is one of them.
What is Cica?
Cica is a nickname for centella asiatica. This skincare ingredient is also know as “tiger grass” in some skincare brands. Sometimes cica is called tiger grass because tigers used to rub cica to help heal their wounds faster. Cica has many benefits such as calming your skin, reducing redness, healing, anti-aging, and repairing your skin as well. The new Urang Cica Ampoule contains a whopping 75.8% of organic Centella Asiatica.
How’s the new ampoule?
Overall, I am really impressed with the new cica ampoule. It has a soothing effect and soaks well into the skin. I have been suffering with some mask acne lately, so I really enjoy incorporating cica in my skincare because it helps calm my skin down. The ampoule is a gel-like and light-weight texture. I absolutely love the texture and how it feels on the skin. I will definitely keep using it in my night skincare routine.
Don’t forget to check out my social medias, Instagram and Youtube. In the meantime, don’t forget to check out my latest video.
I have a new series on my channel called “SUMMER WITH ME”. Here is episode 3, but you can check the other episodes on my channel.

** side note: The ampoule was gifted by Urang through the Urang supporters program. Of course, my opinions & reviews are completely honest!!

Why have a cleansing routine?
Do you have a cleansing routine? If not, GUUURLLL WHAT ARE YOU DOING? 😀
Having a cleansing routine is very beneficial for the health of our skin. Throughout the day we collect dirt, pollution, bacteria, oils, and dead skin cells. So, it is very important to incorporate a cleansing routine to remove these impurities we have collected. Also if we wear makeup, it’s NECESSARY to remove it thoroughly with a cleansing routine.
My Double Cleansing Routine
Recently I have been using the Urang Foam cleanser and cleansing oil as part of my double cleansing. I don’t wear makeup every day, but I prefer to integrate a double cleansing routine into daily skincare regime because it keeps my skin clean and helps prevent any breakouts.
First Step – Cleansing Oil
First, I start off with the Urang Natural Cleansing oil. It can be used both as makeup remover and cleanser. This cleansing oil contains fun ingredients such as Carthamus Tinctorius Seed Oil (for moisture), Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot) Kernel Oil (for skin-conditioning), and Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil (for cleansing and emollient ).
I noticed the cleansing oil does a great job removing majority of my makeup and impurities after only one use. Of course, if you have very stubborn lip tint or extremely matte lipstick, I recommend using a makeup remover on the specific areas such as lips before using the cleansing oil.
As you can see in the photo above, it removed the eyeliner quite easily but the lipstick was a bit stubborn. Now usually I have a hard time removing my lip tints no matter which cleansing oils I use since I tend to use very long lasting lip products.
Second Step – Creamy Bubble Foam Cleanser
For my second step, I like to use a foam cleanser since I find it more appealing and effective compare to other forms of cleansers. If I had to explain this cleanser in one word, it would be BUTTERY!!! I can’t get over the texture and smoothness of this cleanser. It feels amazing whenever I apply it onto my face. It feels so therapeutic as well.
Some key ingredients are Lauryl Glucoside (for cleansing), Sodium Cocoyl Apple Amino Acids (for foam booster & skin conditioning), and Potassium Cocoate (moisturizer).
After using the foam cleanser, I find my skin is both clean AND moisturized. I dislike using cleansers that strip my skin from its natural oils. Even if I don’t apply other skincare products, my skin still feels smooth and moisturize. It’s quite surprising.
As you can see in the photos above, most of the makeup was removed after using both the cleanser oil and foam cleanser. Of course the matte lipstick I used was very very VERY stubborn, so it didn’t completely remove. On the hand, I don’t have any problems removing my foundation, eye shadow, mascara, etc.
I’m very content with this double cleansing routine I am currently using. Even though it doesn’t remove some of my stubborn lip tint, I am happy with the results. 🙂 If I had to choose one I prefer more, I would go for the foam cleanser because I am in love with the texture and how my skin feels afterwards.
My RATINGS are: (out of 5 stars)
Quality : ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Overall: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ (4 out of 5, YAY)
Congrats, Urang foam cleanser & cleansing oil!! You are Sandy’s approved!!
Please look forward to my double cleansing routine COMING soon on my Youtube channel.
Hey, diverse beauties! My name is Sandy and I am a skincare junkie, beauty content creator, and expat. Believe it or not, I used to be a blogger when I was back in school but I decided to pursue my passion on Youtube. Since then, I haven’t blog much and I am a bit rusty. I decided to go back to blogging because I missed writing and wanted to have a platform where I can share about topics I don’t have much of an opportunity to talk about. Also it gives me an excuse to talk more about my skincare obsession. 😀
Mission & Plans for my blog?
There are a few things I want to share through my new blog. They are:
Korean skincare & beauty
Expat experience abroad
And many more things…
Also I want to create a platform where anyone no matter your gender, race, ethnicity, religion, etc can come together and share their passion in beauty. There is beauty in diversity AND diversity in beauty.
If you have any suggestion or recommendations, please let me know~ We can all learn from each other.
You can find me both on my Youtube and Instagram. I usually upload once a week on my Youtube and try to do daily post on my Instagram. Of course, life can get busy, so there are times when I take a bit of a break. I feel like we all need a bit of a social media break. It’s healthy for our mentality. Of course my breaks don’t last that long. We got to keep it real here. 😀
