With a combination of 40% Cica, 10% of Calamine (protects), Tea Tree (anti-inflammatory) and Peppermint (refreshes), this pink cream in a tube I’d say is the potent version of the gel. It is spotcream for a reason as it added more ingredients in its list. It is lightweight creamy in texture with a faint hint of peppermint and tea tree oil which I love. For the reason it is pink and it looks obvious on my skin as I prefer to apply generously, I use it in the evening. I assumed it has Salicylic Acid but I was wrong so, I never experienced any drying at all (in fact, the opposite). I have tried it both using on affected areas and my whole face the night after my tretinoin and seem work well with my skin.
