La Roche Posay Cicaplast Levres AKA my new holy grail.


Now, i don't throw around the term 'holy grail' too often. In fact, i think this is the first time I've used it, but this little product is definitely deserving of it seeing as i've already nearly used up a whole tube and bought four back ups since trying it just over a month ago.

The product in question is the La Roche Posay Cicaplast Levres, which is described as a barrier repairing balm mainly to be used on the lips. You may know that i have severely dehydrated skin on my top lip, almost like eczema but not really red, and it can be a real pain to fix and cover up. I've been using this balm throughout the day and before bed for about a month now and i've noticed a significant improvement. Now its not gone, i don't think it will be completely going for a while, but as soon as i apply it it feels completely hydrated and a lot more comfortable. Even when i don't have any on, the area feels much less dry and tight and no longer gets flaky which was my main concern. The consistency is much like your regular ointment, its a slightly waxy balm texture which applies almost matte making it barely noticeable. It has a slightly 'silicone' texture although i don't think it has silicone in it, which helps the area to hold moisture and protects it from anything which may aggravate it such as the wind etc. It takes a while to sink in but unlike most balms/ointments i've tried it does completely sink in after a while which means i know its actually working to hydrate the skin and nourish it rather than just sitting on top. As i said i've nearly used up a whole tube in just over a month which isn't too bad seeing as i apply it multiple times through the day, but also isn't great seeing as they're £6 a pop. I stocked up on them as they were only £4 on feel unique, but unfortunately that offer has now ended. This can be used all over the face so if you have problems with dry, flaky skin, eczema or chapped lips then i'd definitely recommend giving this a try!
