Vegreen is a new brand in the K-Beauty scene and lesser-known by the K-Beauty community, but I have tried their skincare line before and to be honest, I was very impressed with the quality of their products. The Vegreen Nature Mucin Toner has become a HG for me! They recently launched a new serum with Centella Asiatica. At first, I wasn’t exactly thrilled, because there are so many Cica products in the market already. BUT, after having tried it, I am so glad they actually made their own.

What is the Vegreen Fragrance-free Cica Serum

This is a simple serum with Centella Asiatica Extract and all of its active components which aims to soothe sensitive skin and moisturize. So, you can consider this as a moisturizing serum with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Other notable ingredients include: Allantoin, Panthenol (pro Vitamin B5) and Sodium Hyaluronate.

It comes in a 50ml plastic bottle with a pump.

Application

Apply the serum after cleansing and toning. One to one pump and a half is enough to cover the whole face. Although my skin feels comfortable even when used on its own, I find it works best at the serum step, especially if your skin is on the drier side. It’s very easy to layer and can be used both morning and night.

Consistency

A gel-like consistency, but it’s very runny. Easy to spread around, doesn’t leave any sticky residue behind and absorbs pretty fast.

Scent

There is no scent to it. The serum is free of fragrance and EOs.

Performance

This feels both hydrating and moisturizing for my skin. I already mentioned that this makes my skin comfortable even when I use it alone, but works even better over a hydrating toner. Those with drier skin types will benefit so much from layering. It can also be layered by itself without getting sticky or heavy! After it dries down and properly sets, my face becomes velvety smooth and soft.

I also love that it plumps the fine lines on my forehead and under the eyes. Just as the toner and serum, this too, provides long lasting moisture to the skin. Definitely give it a try if you have dehydration issues!

It does have a calming effect and effectively reduces redness. I had two huge inflamed pimples from trying a Vit C recently and it calmed them down in 5-10 min.

I haven’t experienced any breakouts or congestion, so I think it’ll be suitable for acne prone skin as well.

Plays well with other skincare, makeup and suncreen.

Moreover, if I had to compare this to the Purito’s Centella Serum, it is so much better in terms of hydrating power and texture/finish. There is not a single bad thing I can say about this. I believe it would work for all skin types.
