La Roche-Posay // Cicaplast Baume B5 Review

In my last favourites I featured the La Roche-Posay Cicaplast Baume B5, a Soothing Repairing Balm to you and me. After my little accident at Dan's graduation this product was quite the miracle product.
Cicaplast Baume B5* is a multi-purpose balm providing immediate comfort to skin with it's soothing and repairing powers for irritations such as dry lips and eczema to minor injuries. This thick white balm is suitable for the whole family, including babies. It can be used from head to toe, including the face and lips. Other uses are burns, cracks, nappy rash and sun burn. It's completely paraben free as well as fragrance free.
The balm contains Panthenol 5%, which is great for calming and soothing irritations and redness, it's a form of Pro-Vitamin B5, which is also found in a lot of foods such as beef, fish and egg. Panthenol helps moisturise, improve hydration of the skin, reduces water loss and helps skin elasticity. Shea butter is also found in this balm making it incredibly nourishing to healing skin, while Madecassoside helps with faster aesthetic scarring combined with copper, zinc and manganese to reduce bacteria and speed up natural healing. We can't forget La Roche-Posay's thermal spring water for it's soothing and softening properties.
My first application had results the next morning, I applied before I went to bed and woke up to see both cuts had finally started to shrink. In a matter of days the cuts were healing, one leg has already healed over, with bruising shrinking rapidly. My left leg was the worst of the two, using twice a day it was took awhile longer before my leg healed. Since then I only have a tiny red mark on my leg, that will vanish eventually, it was a pretty nasty fall. Before I started using Cicaplast Baume B5 Sudocrem was not helping at all. If you struggle with dry lips, I can't rate this enough especially as the weathers getting colder along with eczema sufferers, I personally think it beats any creams prescribed by Dr's.
