Gentle for senstive skin
My skin has been problematic with change of weather and general contact dermatitis - after trialing this balm it's soothed my skin really quickly.
Dry patches of skin have been hydrated, so no more flakey skin!
What i like most about the balm is the texture, it's not an overly rich product so I can reapply when necessary and not feel like it's overdone. I'll keep this in my arsenal of skincare and return to this whenever I have a skin flare up or when i notice any redness.
Repairs and heals dry skin
I found this balm was really effective on repairing my dry skin, particularly on the soles of my feet. After a few uses, my skin was less flaky but instead firm in nature. I apply a little every night and can definitely see and feel the difference. I would highly recommend to anyone suffering from dry skin and wanting a remedy for skin repair.
I was very intrigued to see what this balm would do. Thick texture which provides a good coverage. Did moisten my skin and I did feel like my skin was smoother and plumper. The on.y thing is, it kind of left a film over the edges of my face, where it didn’t quit absorb, or maybe the consistency was a little too think on areas of my face. Was please with the results, but sent think it would be a regular part of my beauty regime.
This will help sensitised skin!
This is skin recovery in a tube! After my skin decided it didn't like Retin-A anymore (happens randomly) I was left with dry, flaking and very sore skin.
This balm is a lovely thick consistency, so acts as a barrier, whilst giving your face a super dose of moisture and calming ingredients.
This will honestly be a staple. I love with skin the deals with stuff fine for months then suddenly decides oh no I don't like that product after all so I'm going to burn your face off. When that happens it's very hard to find creams that don't hurt and do help you skin. Now that I've found this, I will not be without it.
When you put it on at night, expect to wake up feeling it on your skin still, this will not sink in. You will need to wash your face to remove it but it is meant to act as a barrier so completely expected to have it not sink in. So protective! So love!
Great neutral balm
This was a great balm for dry and sensitive skin. It was nourishing and felt great on the skin.
Safe during pregnancy
I used the La Roche-Posay Cicaplast Balm and Mask and has felt great on dry and sensitive skin. I’m currently pregnant and my skin has been extra sensitive - I get a red patch around my lip area and the balm has been great in calming it down. I love that the balm is safe to use during pregnancy as well
Fantastic for sensitive skin
I was very grateful to receive this, I have been using the B5 Balm for a few years now- and its actually a staple in my house.
I have one tube in my bathroom, one for my bedside table, kitchen, handbag and my baby's room.
I also bought my mum and sister one to have at their place.
I didn't realise all the uses you could get out of it until i had run out once.
I have sensitive, dry, eczema skin and just put it on whenever and where ever i need it.
Dry patches everywhere? Slap it on
Mozzie bite itching in kids? Slap it on
Mild cradle cap in babies? Slap it on
Husbands hands dry and cracked? Slap it on
A burn starting to heal and scab? You got it.
I should invest in shares honestly.
I am totally in love with this stuff! I am planning to buy a tube of it for every handbag so I always have it with me.
The texture is a bit like zinc when you first put it on (don't let that put you off) but it quickly absorbs and leaves your skin feeling wonderful.
My skin is looking so healthy and happy and I highly recommend it to others with dry/combination skin.
Soothing and gentle balm
I really loved this balm as it is so versatile. I suffer with dermatitis on my arms in winter and the balm really helped with the redness and scaly skin .I also tried it on my face after I got a little sunburned and it was so soothing and moisturizing without the usual heaviness of some creams I have used . Loved the lightweight texture and the fact that you could use it for so many skin issues . A real winner for me .
Can be used for so many skin complaints
This cream is a must have for anyone! Since receiving it we've used it for...
a rosacea flareup
irritated/blisters on hands from golf
irritation to a deodorant
irritation to constant handwashing.
I can't begin to explain how amazing this is. It helps to instantly calm down irritation, redness and itchiness. The irritation from my rosacea went away within 12 hours, it took 3 days for my daughters rash on her hands to disappear and 5 days for my husbands irritation from a deodorant to reduce. It's been such a lifesaver that I've bought one for my daughters school bag so she can apply it after washing her hands and also one for my husband so he can take it to golf. It's a must have for any bathroom cabinet and handbag. I love that you only need a small amount for it to work and they're so affordable.
Great for Sensitive Skin
This cream helps to sooth my sensitive skin (on my face). My face got allergy flare up during weather changes and this cream saved my face in a couple of days! It is really easy to use, simply apply a thin layer on those flared up area or on rashes, it really helps to clam those area.
This is now a staple at our house
My skin is so horribly dry and is very flaky. So I was very excited to try this product. The balm was quickly absorbed by my very dry skin. After using this for a few days I could see that all my dry patches were going down and my skin is now much smoother and healthier. I even got my husband to use this and he was very impressed how quickly it helped with dry patches.
I have been using this product every night for the past two weeks to help hydrate my dry skin and it has been amazing!
The product is thick in texture but I don't mind that, as I let it absorb into my skin whilst I sleep.
I have extremely rough and uneven skin tone and find when I wake up in the morning my skin is feeling softer and smoother. I have noticed results within the two weeks with my skin feeling less dry than normal.
Soothing and repairing rich balm
The La Roche-Posay Cicaplast Baume B5 Balm features ingredients such as vitamin B5:Panthenol and Madecassoside - ingredients to soothe and repair the skin.
I suffer from irritation around my nose - it gets red, itchy and scaley. I also use acids in the skincare routine and sometimes my skin can get a little over exfoliated/irritated. The rich cream balm has nice texture that isn't too heavy on the skin at all. I like to apply it over the irritated area and gently massage it into the skin, i then apply a thin layer on top to create a barrier as the final step in my nightly skincare routine. I found this product best to use at night as it can pill and slide if applying makeup or anything on top of it.
The next morning, my areas of irritation definitely looks and feels soothed and on its way to being repaired. It takes away any itchiness and reduces the redness of my skin. There isn't any scaley or flakiness of the skin and it looks nearly healed. After application over a couple of days, my skin is healed and back to normal!
soothing and hydrating
This product worked well on my young daughters nappy rash and dummy rash. I applied it on her face and it reduced redness quite significantly. I love the thin texture and absorbs really well. Would definitely purchase to use again!
A balm to calm skin.
I love using this Cicaplast Balm to calm and heal my dry, dehydrated skin after exfoliation and treatments, or any time it really needs a soothing boost of hydration. I like to use this on its own, putting on a thick layer as a mask. Afterwards my skin looks smooth, less red and soft. It even works well as a sleeping mask. I couldn’t recommend this enough, especially if you have dry, irritated skin.
Multi-purpose and super hydrating
I really liked this balm, and I loved that it was multi-purpose and just so convenient for dry, rough and red patches on the face and body.
I took this on a (sun filled) trip away, and it was just great to have because of its multi purpose. I mainly used this on a red/rough patch on the back of my arms and it helped so much, on my dry legs when I couldn’t access body lotion and on my hands as a hand cream. I even used it on my lips a few times when they were dry (I didn’t love it to much as a lip balm as it came out white/thick and not transparent, but it was still a great alternative to nothing as I had forgotten to pack a lip balm).
The cream came out quite thick but melted into the skin very quickly. I preferred this on my body to on my face, but it can be used on both. It has no scent and the packaging is cute and practical. I would purchase this again and will take this on all my trips away as I loved that it has so many uses.
Love this product
Best cream on the market. I use it everyday since trying it. I have sensitive skin and it has not irritated my skin like some others have. It feels fresh and soothing. It is a nice thick cream so you only need a a small amount. I had a patch of dry skin near my nose that would not go away, no matter how many creams i tried. Within 3 days it has completely gone. I have recommended this cream and swear by it and a few friends and mum have bought it and also love it. My daughters have eczema and this had stopped them scratching their arms and legs at night too. Such a great price also.
A fabulous scentless balm that is excellent for dry and chapped skin. My skin gets very dry itchy red and chapped. I develop these patches on my skin and literally nothing helps. I have been using this everyday and it's slowly getting better with no irritations !
Dry and sensitive skin saviour
I regularly use acid treatments and retinol and admittedly overdo it all the time. This is why I am often on the lookout for a product which can help with restoring my skin barrier during those times. This is the perfect saviour. This balm can initially seem thick but it melts quite seamless upon contact with warm skin. It is splendidly creamy, non-fragranced and does an excellent job of keeping my sensitive and dry skin barrier intact. It seems like a small tube but it does last a long time and you only really need very little of it.
