La Roche Posay Cicaplast Baume B5 Review

Hey Beauties!
Today I come to you with a review of  La Roche Posay Cicaplast Baume B5 which was sent to me by EscentualEscentual have an offer on this month on the French pharmacy favourites, 1/3 off selected brands!

I am loving Cicaplast, its quite like the Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream as Cicaplast is a do everything cream that can be used on the face, body, lips etc. Its great because it can be used by all members of the family from babies right up to adults and on all irritations or differences in your skin so long as its not bleeding or an open cut/wound etc.
“Its highly reparative formulation includes Panthenol concentrated at 5%, plus Madecassoside which acts as an anti-inflammatory and collagen synthesiser. The triple-action of copper, zinc and manganese encourages optimal skin recovery, while antibacterial agents ensure long-lasting protection.”

I think it works really well as you can use it on a number of things like chapped lips,  heating sensation, sunburn dryness, nappy rash, grazes and eczema. I personally use it for dryness because my skin is so dry but using a combination of Cicaplast and Vichy Homme serum and my skin has been looking so great. I have no dry patches!
The texture of this cream is really nice it feels really moisturising but its no were near as thick as 8 hour cream, the directions are to apply as much as you need for the part you want to use the Baume on and rub it into the skin then leave it to absorb in. I think this is far better than 8 hour cream because it absorbs better and it isnt sticky at all.
You can get La Roche Posay Cicaplast Baume B5 from Escentual at 33% off at £10.33 or you can also buy it from Boots for £15.50, the tube contains 100ml of product
What do you think of this?

All opinions on this product are my own

  • This is a great recovery cream if you’ve had a chemical peel or other cosmetic procedure that can dry out the skin. Superb on skin that’s been over-exposed to sun and wind too.

    Sounds great Andii and glad it’s helped your dryness. I think I’m too oily for this though 🙁

  • This sounds wonderful! I will definitely be trying this. I’ve been having major dry skin issues this winter.

    This has been my holy grail product for the past 2 months…is great to repair and rebalance the skin after going OTT with the glycolic acid. And today I wore cropped trousers and got wind burn on my ankles…ouch… luckily it sorted it right out!

    That sounds amazing, I definitely need to try this! Thanks for recommending it xx

    I used it on a model who had dryness and flakeyness around her nose from having a cold. Cleared it up marvellously and none of the flakeyness showed up on the pics.
