Gel not as great

3

When this arrived it was the gel formula. I thought I’d re-ordered the creamy version. I wasn’t as pleased with the gel - it leaves a film on the skin and I noticed a few little pimples around my nose a couple of days after use in that area. It did soothe some dry skin but overall not as impressed.

My favourite!

5

I adore the texture of this gel balm which sinks in and works so much better for me than the cream baume formula. Feels like water and is so gentle but moisturising. My skin feels plump and healthy after use.

Post-surgery scar

5

Purchased for use on a recently healed but overly traumatised scar following minor surgery. It’s too soon to give an update on the actual affects of the product, but I’ve been using it twice daily on my new scar and it’s really helping to sooth and comfort it. The gel cream goes on very smoothly and becomes almost oil-like as you massage it in. My scar feels comfortably, hydrated and less aggravated as a result of using this.

Highly recommended

Cicaplast gel B5 is so compatible with my skin. It brings out the glow and makes my skin feel/look smooth. It is an amazing product. I highly recommend.

Good

4

I have mild rosacea skin and was looking for something that would not irritate it and after hearing good things about this on a rosacea blog I thought I’d give it a go. It’s a lovely silky texture and a little goes a long way, however after a few uses it does sting slightly, and leaves your skin feeling quite greasy. Not ideal for daytime however fine for night time. I am going to try la Roche posay toleraine ultra night cream and just use this a few times a week for a deeper moisturiser as every day might be a bit too much. I will say that the cream makes my skin look lovely when I wake up in the mornings though as the shine has gone by then. Overall it is a nice cream and I probably will purchase again.

Fabulous stuff

5

I bought some La Roche Posay cicaplast balm on a whim to be honest after suffering for months with bad scabs on my skin (around my mouth just to make matters worse). They just would not heal and I tried everything. I used at home acid peels in the past and looking back I think I went overboard & have really irritated my skin. This stuff is just lovely. After using this and the bam for like a week my skin is 99.9% healed and thank god I tried it. I am so impressed I am buying more of this brand. Not too expensive either. But for a product that actually does what it says? I’ll gladly pay it.

Super Light, calming moisturiser

5

I bought this after buying the original cicaplast baume, which I had bought, as recommended by Caroline Hirons, to help calm my skin after I had irritated it and upset my skin barrier with too many harsh products at once. The cicaplast baume is good but is thick and I feel that it leaves a white cast initially so not great for during the day, under make up. When Caroline Hirons recommended the gel version I got it also and LOVE it. I use it as a day moisturiser. It’s so light and absorbs really quickly, which is handy when layering products in the morning. I have bought a few tubes and some for my friends also. Will always repurchase! The cicaplast lip balm is also lovely!

Favourite

This has became one of my favourite, it changed my skin when it when through a rough time. My skin was really irritated and anything I would put on would cause more irritation to me skin. This calmed my skin. Love it and I can’t live without it.

Breakouts

2

After reading the reviews on this product, I was so excited to try it out as I have dry skin and struggle to find a moisturiser that doesn't break me out. I really wanted to love this, as it does leave my skin feeling soft, however, I was breaking out like no other from this. I tested it out twice to see if it wasn't caused by anything else, and it wasn't. Definitely recommend for dry skin but if you are prone to products breaking you out I wouldn't recommend it.
