Welcome Skintellectuals 

If there is one product 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 and 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 like 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 and 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 adults.

La Roche Posay Cicaplast Baume B5 Review

Cicaplast contains Panthenol (also known as Vitamin B5) at 5% which is a fantastic 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 contained also encourages optimal skin recovery, while antibacterial agents ensure long-lasting protection, finally Cicaplast contains a patented ceramide called Procerad that helps to suppress brown spots due to the excessive production of melanin. It also helps to clarify and promote an even skin tone.

As this is the SPF version it contains the filters homosalate which protects against UVB and octocrylene which protects against UVB and Shortwave UVA. Even though Cicaplast says it is SPF 50 i would still use a dedicated sunscreen like Anthelios SPF 50

La Roche Posay Cicaplast Baume B5 Review

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 give an example on how good Cicaplast is, my mum used it throughout her kidney transplant and her nephrectomy. She used it daily on any broken skin, bruises, irritation and seemed to have cleared up in half the time it would have taken normally for my mum.

La Roche Posay Cicaplast Baume B5 Review
Left – (Just after she was released from hospital) 
Right – (Around 3-4 weeks of daily use of Cicaplast)

The texture of this cream is really nice it feels really moisturising but its nowhere near as thick as Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream, the directions are to apply as much as you need for the part you want to use the Baume on and massage it into the skin then leave it to absorb in.
In my honest opinion i feel like this is far better than 8 hour cream because it absorbs better and it isn’t sticky at all and it doesn’t smell.    

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*  

What do you think of this?
Do you like Cicaplast or 8 Hour Cream better?

    I adore the original and it also helped with my little one’s eczema. I haven’t seen this new version here in Canada but I will keep an eye out for it!

    ps: Ouch, your arm!!!!

    I haven’t heard of this cream, but seems to work wonders on the affected skin. I’m glad it worked perfectly for your mum. Its multi purpose use makes it a worth try.

    Wow. I haven’t heard of this – but looks like a handy little tube to keep around!

  • Marie 17th September 2018 at 11:46 pm

    My little niece has eczema so I’m definitley going to suggest this to my SIL. Looks like it’d be a good fit.

  • Nancie 18th September 2018 at 2:40 am

    Thankfully, I have never needed to use anything like this. Glad it worked for you.

  • Nandita 18th September 2018 at 7:47 am

    I hadn’t heard of it before, but it’s good to know about helpful items from people who have actually been using it for a while & found them to be beneficial….will keep in mind the next time I am refilling my medicine cabinet.

    It cleared up so nicely in the pictures. I am having trouble with my daughter’s skin right now, working on finding a solution.

  • aisasami 18th September 2018 at 1:17 pm

    These are some amazing before/afters!

  • Tizzy Says 19th September 2018 at 6:14 pm

    Wow! That cream did a great job on your mom’s skin. It makes me wonder if it would work for reducing existing stretch marks.

  • Erin 23rd September 2018 at 5:30 pm

    Oh wow the difference is incredible! I haven’t heard people mention this one yet, but everyone is loving La Roche Posay and I need to take the time to check them out properly. Your mums skin looks so much better after such a short time, its amazing!
