La Roche Posay Cicaplast Baume B5 Review

La Roche Posay Cicaplast Baume B5 Review

Hey Beauties!

If there is one product that has saved my skin countless times its La Roche Posay Cicaplast Baume B5, its that good of a product almost everyone in my family both my mum, my sister and me have our own tubes of this miracle wonder cream!

I have used Cicaplast for a good few years now and to those who haven’t used it before i often describe it like the Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream on steroids as Cicaplast is a “do everything cream” without the oil or the smell.
Cicaplast 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.

La Roche Posay Cicaplast Baume B5 Review

Cicaplast is a contains Panthenol at 5% which is a humectant which is able to hold and attract water to the skin, plus Madecassoside, One of four principal bioactive compounds in the plant Centella asiatica which acts as an anti-inflammatory and collagen synthesiser. Copper, zinc and manganese encourages optimal skin recovery, while antibacterial agents ensure long-lasting protection.
La Roche Posay Cicaplast Baume B5 Review
I think it works really well as you can use it on a number of things like chapped lips, sunburn dryness, nappy rash, grazes, new tattoos, eczema etc. To give an example on how good Cicaplast is, my mum used it through her kidney transplant and her nephrectomy recently. She used it daily on any broken skin, bruises, irritations and were gone within half the time i would have taken normally.

Left – (Just after she was released from hospital)          Right – (Around 2-3 weeks of daily use of Cicaplast)

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 Boots for £14, the tube contains 100ml of product or there is a smaller 40ml size for £6.50

  • Ok… Im definitely investing in this! I get ridiculously dry/sore lips and general lip salve dosent cut it for me! So for the price of this and how quickly it seems to work? I really do need to try this. I also use their duo effaclar and its amazing! I skipped it for a few days and instantly noticed the difference! Then when I used it again, the next day I already noticed a difference. Thanks for the review, couldnt have come at a better time for me!
