By Wishtrend TECA 1% Barrier Cream review


After a disastrous experience with the By Wishtrend Green Tea & Enzyme Powder Wash where my skin pretty much molted, I was in need of some desperate barrier repair.

    I just posted my review (it was sent to me as well), and it took me so long because I was on the fence about it! I keep seeing everyone loving it, but I didn’t notice anything like you, so I’m glad I’m not alone!

    I am looking for something like this. Thank you for sharing your opinion on this product. I personally love it because of the effect on acne scars and redness. I didn’t really fancy the powder wash but will definitely give it a go still.

  4. Oh my goodness – I can’t imagine getting a reaction like that and I am so sorry that happened to you! I appreciate your honesty in sharing your experience and I’m glad you found something that worked to heal your skin! I’ve heard only amazing things about the Cicaplast (I bought it and keep it for “emergencies”) so I’m glad it worked out!

    I actually don’t mind the not so positive review. What’s important is you were honest about the whole experience. I had a breakout last Christmas vacation because of the sudden change in my skin care routine (was staying at my parents’ place and I forgot my skincare products). My skin is still healing from the breakout right now, but I wish this product is available locally in case something like that happens again. I think, based on your review, and what other people about the product, it’s best for simple breakouts. :)

  6. Oh my gosh Jenny! So sorry you experienced such a reaction! I’ve been there. So glad the La Roche Posay worked.

    Thanks for this review! I am looking for something to help with my acne scars and redness. I was trying to decide between the TECA Cream and the Cicaplast Baume, so this is helpful!

    Thanks for the honest review Jenny! I agree it isn’t enough for dry skin. I haven’t noticed it doing much for me other than a light coat of protection but I just tried it on a little mini breakout along my jawline (which I think is actually purging from vitamin C) so hopefully it will help!

    OMG! So sorry to hear about what happened to your skin! I haven’t updated my review on By Wishtrend Powder Wash yet because I stopped using it, I’m too impatient. I want something ready to apply on my face. Anyway, I think we both agreed that the calming effect of Teca 1% cream on red skin is not that effective. But I actually used this last Thursday throughout the weekend after I had an Advance Anti-Acne Facial. My esthecian gave me a calming/cooling face mask after the facial so I didn’t end up with red skin, however, I ended with a lot of tiny painful dots from pricking. And for the second time, I’m saying this cream really do work on post-acne. I spent Christmas with a pain-free and smoother-looking skin :D

    Merry Christmas and Wishing you all a magical and blissful holiday! ❤

  12. I’m a big fan of the La Roche-Posay Cicaplast Baume B5 for skin irritations so it was interesting to read you thoughts on how this compares. I’d expect better considering the ingredients and the price but I guess i’ll just stick to the LRP which I actually had to use last week after experiencing a reaction to a new product I’m testing. Thank goodness it’s such a skin saver!

    Happy Holidays to you and your family Jenny! Stay warm, be safe and have lots of fun :D

    I know the LRP cream is brilliant as it helps to heal Little Tyke’s skin when he scratches his eczema until bleed but I have never used it for myself. I actually love this TECA Barrier cream but as for spot treatment and to heal my skin after I naughtily pop a pimple. LOL!

      It actually felt weird using it on my face initially because it’s quite thick, but after a while the texture grew on me! I’ll have to try the TECA cream after I pop a pimple next time, maybe I’ll like it more then! ????

    Thank you for sharing your opinion on this product! I personally love it and the effect it has on my acne and acne scars!

    Love,

    • Jenny says:

      So glad to hear that! That seems to be the general consensus for this product, so I think I’ll pass it along to friends who have acne/acne scarring issues as it’d probably be a better fit for them :)

    That cream sounds really good!

  16. I passed on this one, as I didn´t feel it was suited towards my skin type. And like you I wasn´t really convinced by the powder wash either, though I didn´t have that harsh a reaction to it.

    • Jenny says:

      I thought it would be a good fit for me based on the description, though really the “cream” is more like a gel than anything else, so that was disappointing. I suspect th harsh reaction is due to my skin getting significantly drier during winter, but even without this incident, I’m still not a fan of the wash :(
