La Roche Posay is one of those brands that is constantly raved about by beauty bloggers. I have tried a few of their products and their quality cannot be denied – the spf 50 for face in particular is fantastic. But I have recently come across their piece de resistance!
Cicaplast Baume B5… what a beautiful name :)
This has been a huge success in France, the home of the brand, where 6 months worth of product sold within 60 days. The most amazing thing about this is that they didn’t even have to advertise. That’s surely the mark of a good product. I was intrigued.
I picked up a tube for €12.50 in my local pharmacy – I couldn’t believe how cheap it was. After hearing such acclaim I was expecting a fairly hefty price tag. Now I actually bought it for baby Eve who had dry skin on her face, nappy rash and a touch of eczema on the back of her elbows (I tried all the usuals but to no avail). It cleared both up in 24 hours. My intrigue turned to delight. I proceeded to smear some all over the bumps at the backs of my arms, my knees and elbows and a dry patch on my forehead. All gone in a day or two. Result!
