Today I come to you with a review of La Roche Posay Cicaplast Baume B5 which was sent to me by Escentual. Escentual 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
