GLAMOUR Tries: We tried the £13 colour corrector TikTok is going wild for – and OMG. It has blown our minds

There’s no better time than a national lockdown to test out the coolest new skincare/makeup/hair trends and snazzy innovations in beauty tech from the comfort of your own home. That said, there’s nothing more frustrating than spending upwards of £100 on a snazzy new hair treatment or at-home facial system, only to find out it doesn’t *actually* work.

Enter GLAMOUR Tries: the weekly Instagram series which sees GLAMOUR editors do all of the time-consuming (and expensive) work for you.

We’ve been busy trying out all of the (sometimes) wacky but always wonderful beauty crazes to take the internet by storm – from the FOREO’s UFO 2 Smart Mask Treatment (an LED face mask with a difference) to Sarah Chapman’s £138 Meso-Melt Infusion at-home facial and Toni&Guy’s Hello Day! Secret Volumising Crimper. These are the products that every veteran beauty sleuth is talking about on the internet – but that you want to do a bit of research into before buying.

Thanks to GLAMOUR Tries, you won’t need to waste your hard-earned pennies on testing these innovations yourself. We’re getting in their first, giving you the lowdown and making sure you invest in products that genuinely work. Like what you see? You can shop all of the products seen on GLAMOUR tries in previous weeks down below. Race ya?

On GLAMOUR Tries this week, our Beauty Editor Lottie Winter tried the product that everyone on TikTok is going *wild* for. It is, of course, the Dr. Jart+ Cicapair™ Tiger Grass Colour Correcting Treatment which has gone viral on social media of late because it simply transforms the skin. Available for £13 at Beauty Bay, it works to treat blemishes, correct redness and restore your skin’s strength. It boasts SPF30 and can be worn either underneath makeup or on its own. Here’s what happened when we put it to the test…

“So, the hero ingredient is tiger grass which is basically amazing at reducing redness and soothing irritation,” Lottie said. “But it also has this green tint, which is where the colour correcting comes in.

“I have no makeup on and, I mean… my skin is OK at the moment, but I have some breakouts and some areas of redness around my nose. I’m just going to do one side of my face and compare…”

“Okay… Mind. Blown. I can see why this has gone viral,” Lottie said. “Look at this! So I’ve just done this side of my face with the product – look at that line and the difference! I feel like it has made me a tiny bit paler but it has knocked out ALL the redness.

“It’s not even makeup! This is the kind of effect I’d expect from a sheer foundation so it’s really tripping me out!”

The verdict? “I definitely used less foundation and less concealer to achieve the coverage I wanted, but I also think it’d be great for those days when you want to go makeup free but you need a little ‘something’.

“In my opinion it definitely deserves its viral status and I am going to be using this every day.” Sold? Same.
