iUNIK was a brand that I came across when researching for skincare without any fragrance. The products are created with a lot of care towards sensitive skin. They don’t use any fragrance and instead rely on a foundation of natural ingredients which they select and combine to build a formula with great skin benefits. With my sensitive skin I was very interested in this Centella Calming Gel Cream.
My skin type is oily and prone to acne around my jaw and chin. I am also sensitive to fragrances in skincare so to find a brand that takes such care to create their products and formulas was a dream.
iUNIK Centella Calming Gel Cream
This Centella Calming Gel Cream is a “refreshing and moisturizing oil-free cream that makes the skin clearer and more vibrant.” Its formula contains a patented 6-sprout skin protection formula along with Centella Asiatica Leaf Water (70%) and Tea tree Leaf Water (10%). The gel cream is meant to gently lower skin temperature, soothe and calm sensitive skin with blemishes.
The formula of this Centella Calming Gel Cream is a lightweight gel. It’s clear and cool to apply to my skin. I use slightly larger than a pea size amount and it would be enough to put a layer of this cream over my face. Once applied it had a cooling effect and sank in quickly with out feeling sticky or greasy.
I especially liked this formula for use on my oily skin. The gel texture was lightweight and sank in quickly however it was also nicely hydrating. My skin would be plump and moisturised without being shiny.
This isn’t the largest tube and I thought I would run through the formula within a month however it lasted me much longer. This gel lasted me around three months as I only needed such a small amount to cover my face.
I can’t say I noticed any huge changes to my skin from wearing this. It was very hydrating and non-oily however this gel didn’t reduced my breakouts or erased my wrinkles. My breakouts are hormonal and no cream can erase wrinkles so I wasn’t expecting miracles from this. Overall this was a great, lightweight gel for my oily skin that kept me hydrated without any irritation or shininess.
