The Product Review... La Roche Posay Cicaplast Baume B5...

Wednesday, 3 July 2013

It is no secret that I have a pretty horrible skin condition on my arms, it's called Keratosis Pilaris and it's the bane of my vain life. My arms are rough, red and spotty. I have tried numerous things to try and cure my keratosis pilaris with no luck in ANY of them. The best thing that I have found is to cover it with fake tan but that is really just one big ball ache having to fake tan all the time. 
Enter La Roche-Posay and their Cicaplast Baume. This has really helped, along side some frantic exfoliation my upper arms are looking the best they have in a while.
The balm is really thick and feels so nice on the skin but at the same time absorbs really quickly and doesn't leave a greasy feeling for long. 
This product contains La Roche-Posay Thermal Water (anti-oxidant, soothing), Panthenol 5% (aka Vitamin B5, soothing), CopperManganese and Zinc (for skin recovery), as well as Madecassoside (anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial). There is also Shea Butter in there which sometimes can be too much for some people.
I really like it as an alternative to the Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream and right now there is % off on on the French Skin Care until the end of June (2013) - I stocked up and I'm waiting to pick up my parcel from the depo - if that's even where it is?! 
Have you tried this cream before?
What's your must have French Skin Care?




  1. ooh I have that at the top of my arms but I'm too worried about the awful skin on my face to do anything about it. Might give this one a go.

  2. I have eczema and I just finished my first tube of this! Love it, such a great multi purpose cream! x
