La Roche-Posay Cicaplast Baume B5+ – Soothing Repairing Balm Review

La Roche-Posay Cicaplast Baume B5+ - Soothing Repairing Balm Review

Cicaplast Baume B5 is one of La Roche-Posay’s best-selling skincare formulas. Beloved by skincare enthusiasts and bloggers worldwide, it is a vital step in many skincare routines. Recently, Cicaplast Baume B5+ has been thrown into the spotlight due to its reformulation, which includes adding new ingredients and redesigning its packaging. If you’re a fan of the original Cicaplast Baume, don’t panic we’ll explain exactly what’s changed in this review.


The Most Important Thing About This Soothing Repairing Balm Is…

The La Roche-Posay Cicaplast B5+ is a multi-purpose wonder that the whole family (babies 3 months +) can benefit from; it can be used practically anywhere on the body or face to soothe damaged and irritated skin. It encourages faster repair from day one of use. It will heal chapped lips, stop scratching and soothe any uncomfortable itchiness and tightness associated with dry skin – plus, it works for baby’s skin; think nappy rashes, bumps and more!

If you’re ever considering running a marathon or half marathon, I can vouch that the Cicaplast Baume B5+ is a runner’s dream – enriched with antibacterial agents, the formula helps to heal blisters, soothe rashes and protect against chafing.


What Skin Type Is It For?

The Cicaplast Baume B5+ has gone through extensive testing under dermatological, ophthalmological, and paediatric control. Its minimal, hypoallergenic formula is specifically designed for uncomfortable, damaged or irritated skin – so all skin types can benefit.


You Will Love This If…

If you were a fan of the original Cicaplast Baume+, don’t panic! The Cicaplast Baume B5+ has the same beloved formula but new additions, such as Tribioma (a unique prebiotic complex) that supports the skin barrier for a healthy microbiome. Other additions, such as corn scratch, help achieve a smoother texture for easy application. If you are currently undergoing cancer treatment, this balm is fantastic for reducing scarring; during my mum’s treatment for breast cancer, she used this every day, and her doctor said he had never seen such fast scar healing – I’d highly recommend it.

To summarise:

How has the Cicaplast Baume B5+ changed?
• Addition of starch for a smoother and non-greasy texture.
• Addition of jicama juice for antioxidants and hydration.
• Addition of ferments and prebiotics to support your microbiome.


Hero Ingredients:

As mentioned earlier, La Roche-Posay’s Cicaplast Baume B5+ contains Tribioma (a unique prebiotic complex), a 5% addition of vitamin B5 and madecassoside​ to support your skin barrier and achieve a healthy microbiome. Infused with antibacterial agents zinc and manganese, the formula creates the perfect environment for the healing process, reducing the causes of long-term scarring.

What Does It Feel Like?

The balm texture acts as a ‘barrier’ to create an invisible protective layer on the skin. This thicker texture makes it perfect for under bandages or plasters.


How Do You Use The Product?

The uses are endless! It can be applied to your body, face and lips. Apply twice as part of your daily routine to pre-washed and dried skin or apply a generous layer to broken or damaged skin.


What’s Special About The Design?

La Roche-Posay’s Cicaplast Baume B5+ is housed within an easy to use squeezy tube for mess-free application. It comes in various sizes – the 40ml is great for baby bags.
