Welcome Skintellectuals

If there is one sản phẩm that has saved my skin on countless occasions its La Roche Posay Cicaplast Baume B5, its that good of a product almost everyone in the family. My mum, my sister & me all 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 lượt thích the Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream on steroids as Cicaplast is a “do everything cream” without the oil or the smell.Unlike the original version of Cicaplast the SPF 50 version isn’t as thick và occlusive which i honestly like, i didn’t think i would but i do.Cicaplast can be used on the face, body, lips bascially anywhere you can think of, It’s great because it can be used by all members of the family from babies right up to lớn adults.

Cicaplast contains Panthenol (also known as vi-ta-min B5) at 5% which is a fantastic humectant which is able khổng lồ hold & attract water khổng lồ the skin, plus Madecassoside,One of four principal bioactive compounds in the plant Centella asiatica which acts as an anti-inflammatory & collagen synthesiser. Copper, zinc & manganese contained also encourages optimal skin recovery, while antibacterial agents ensure long-lasting protection, finally Cicaplast contains a patented ceramide calledProcerad that helps to lớn suppress brown spots due to the excessive production of melanin. Italso helps lớn clarify and promote an even skin tone. As this is the SPF version it contains the filters homosalate which protects against UVB & octocrylene which protects against UVB và Shortwave UVA. Even though Cicaplast says it is SPF 50 i would still use a dedicated sunscreen lượt thích Anthelios SPF 50

I think it works really well because it is so multipurpose as i mentioned before you can use it on things such as: chapped lips, sunburn, dryness, nappy rash, grazes, new tattoos, eczema etc. To lớn give an example on how good Cicaplast is, my mum used it throughout her kidney transplant và hernephrectomy. She used it daily on any broken skin, bruises, irritation and seemed to lớn have cleared up in half the time it would have taken normally for my mum.

The texture of this cream is really nice it feels reallymoisturisingbut its nowhere near as thick as Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream, the directions are to lớn apply as much as you need for the part you want lớn use theBaume on và massage it into the skin then leave it lớn absorb in. In my honest opinion i feel like this is far better than 8 hour cream because it absorbs better & it isn’t sticky at all & it doesn’t smell. You can get La Roche Posay Cicaplast Baume B5 fromBoots for £14*, the tube contains 100ml of product or there is a smaller 40ml size for £6.50*
