REVIEW ON CHICA Y CHICO TOTA-S 3.0

Chica Y Chico means Girl & Boy in Spanish. It is also a sub-brand of Skin&Lab. They are very famous for the Beta-Salic 2.0 (Miracle Cream) which are really famous and has many reviews on it too. Another famous products from this brand would be the Molang Cream.

So, here I have chosen Chica Y Chico Tota-S 3.0 cream since I am really curious on what this cream will do. Besides, I haven't find any reviews in English on yet. So, I hope my review will be helpful.

Let me just update my skin type before I move on to the product.  I have combination(T-zone oily&normal at other areas), acne prone (I tend to break out at jaw, chin&cheeks area), sensitive even to weather so I can't use physical type of scrubs. Although now, I do not have severe acne but who likes it even when there is just one painful bump on the face staring right at you?

Key Ingredients:

  • Totarol
Totarol is a powerful natural anti-bacterial obtained from the Totara tree (Podocarpus Totara) which can be found in New Zealand.
It has a broad spectrum anti-bacterial and powerful anti-oxidant.
It also has anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, and pain relieving properties. It is a top natural anti-oxidant that is 3 times stronger that Vitamin E, and helps protect, and soothe the irritated skin as well as cure acne. It's mild to skin, and very eco-friendly as itself.



  • Centella Asiatica Extract (Gotu Kola)
Centella Asiatica Extract is a rejuvenate nervine recommended for nervous disorders, epilepsy, senility and premature aging.
Centella Asiatica Extract is regarded as the most spiritual of all herbs amongst the Indians. It can be found widely in some areas in Himalayas. It is used by yogis to improve meditation, and is regarded as one of the most important rejuvenative herbs in Ayurvedic Medicine.
It is believed to have a positive effect on the circulatory system. It improves the flow of blood while strengthening the veins and capillaries. It has been used successfully to treat phlebitis, leg cramps, and abnormal tingling of the extremities. It soothes and minimizes varicose veins and helps to minimize scarring.


Centella Asiatica Extract reduces scarring when applied during inflammatory period of the wound. It was found effective when applied on patients with third degree burns, when the treatment commenced immediately after the accident. Daily local application to the affected area along with intramuscular injections, limited the shrinking of the skin as it healed. It is known to prevent infection and inhibit scar formation. It is also useful in repairing skin and connective tissues and smoothing out cellulite.
Centella Asiatica Extract is traditionally used to treat minor wounds as it contains chemicals known as triterpenoids that appear to speed wound healing, boost antioxidants at the wound site, strengthen the skin and increase blood supply to the wounded area.

 It is for all type of skin including extra sensitive skin.  It doesn't cause me redness upon application so I guess it is suitable for any skin.  Unlike benzoyl peroxide, this does not sting at all.  Instead it is really cooling.

Here is the results of using it for about 5 days.

Yes, look too good to be true right?  I thought so until I see the photos myself. No photoshop here too.


I didn't use any other pimples cream when I am using this cream except cleanser.  The product is good if you are the type who prefer natural products as this is effective in banishing those pesky pimples or trouble skin.  Unlike those acne products, this would not cause more breakouts so no worries!  My redness was gone after one week of usage and will keep using it because this natural acne cream works =) .  My skin became so much smoother that I just want to feel my skin all the time. Chiya Y Chico Tota-3.0 works to heal those pimples which I popped too and this leave no scars.

I would suggest anyone that like Korean and also natural products to try this.  I have tried some Korean brands for acne and this works for even underground acne.  The cream can last about 3 months and sure worth to try.

However, if you are used to strong acne products, then you might just find this too mild and does nothing.  This cream is more for someone who likes gentle, non drying products or have sensitive skin that is unable to tolerate all the other acne treatments.
