I changed/adapted slowly my skincare routine and I thought it might be useful to have a mini-series of articles and reviews for the products I’m currently using. I am testing a few of them, following to see how they adapt and work with each other, notice effects and tell you about them after. We’ll start with La Roche Posay – Cicaplast Baume B5, a balm-cream which I repurchased when I found it on a special offer, even though I had half of it already…
What says the producer:
LRP Cicaplast Baume B5 is suitable for adults, children and babies, it can be used on all kinds of everyday skin irritations and minor injuries and is ideal for use on sensitive skin. Contains Panthenol 5% – Also known as Vitamin B5, Madecassoside, Glycerin and Shea Butter and La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water.
How I use it:
- First of all, you should know my skin type is normal, tending to combination;
- I apply this balm at night, generally as a final step of my evening routine; before this, I use: cleanser, toner (The Ordinary Glycolic Acid toner or alternate with Advanced Retinoid 2%); The Ordinary Buffet, and LRP Cicaplast Baume B5;
- It has a really nice texture, it is quickly absorbed, it doesn’t leave the skin looking or feeling greasy;
- I can definitely notice that it cares for my skin, doesn’t cause me any trouble with flaky patches, even if I use chemical peelings quite often;
- It’s soothing, non-comedogenic, hydrates like a dream;
- It’s a good product to have at home, I’ve successfully applied it on the lips or any dry skin areas.
I also took a picture with the ingredients, in case it helps anyone. La Roche Posay – Cicaplast Baume B5 is an excellent product, efficient, cheap, has a hygienic packaging and I recommend it to all people in need of an extra-care product or a calming multi-purpose.
