You know those tubes of something or another you have floating around the bathroom cabinet that seemingly comes to the rescue of anything? Well this is one of them. La Roche-Posay Cicaplast BaumeB5 is a multi-purpose repairing balm for everyday skin irritations. The active ingredient is B5 that stands for panthenol. A biologically stable form of pro-vitamin B5, this formula consolidates the highest dose every achieved in a dermo-cosmetic treatment.
I’ve been using it for all manner of things. A rash of redness around the nose, roughness on heels and flaky skin on lips, all of which have reacted amazingly well to this hydrating French balm that helps reduce water loss and maintain skin elasticity. Paraben, fragrance and lanolin free it’s brilliant for the touchiest of skins and, more importantly is cosmetically pleasant with no greasy aftermath post application. Apply thickly for areas that need plenty of TLC or a fine layer for an instant dressing effect. It's an aaahhh in a tube!
