La Roche-Posay: Cicaplast Balm B5 #review

I was given an opportunity to try out La Roche-Posay new product Cicaplast Balm B5. I was pretty excited to try this product out as I suffer greatly from dry and cracked skin especially on my heels and elbows (not to mention the eczema all over!).

Cicaplast Balm B5 is designed to speed up the recovery of the skin from irritations, cuts and cracks. It can be used all over the body – even your lips! I loved the fact that it was paraben free, fragrance free and lanolin free. It is safe enough to use on infants and children. The perfect family product! No more buying different creams for different family members.
I can not believe I am even showing this awful picture of my heel but this was my before photo:

Awful isn’t it? I am cringing as I am uploading and looking at this awful picture! I suffer with cracked heels all through out the summer made worse by the love of my sandals that have little to no support.
I used the balm for just under two weeks, applying daily. I was really impressed with the rich texture of the cream and its quick absorption. You only need a small amount and it feels as though it creates a protective barrier over top of the skin. I could feel the difference in my heels within four days. Not only did they feel softer but the cracks were healing (which was a first!) and no more sandpaper sounding feet rubbing at night (my husband was grateful – he could not stand the noise!).
Here is a look at my heel now:

Pretty neat, eh?! I will definitely be purchasing this in the future!
Disclosure: I received a trial product at no cost but the opinions expressed are my own.

      Hey Cathy! I was super impressed with the quality of the cream. It definitely was not over night and took almost a week to see much improvement but it has been the first cream to work on my heels. I abuse my heels so badly in the summer between flip flops and going bare foot a lot! I am not sure if I am explaining this right but the cream is thick without feeling greasy and almost "coats&

    This looks awesome and exactly what I need. I have noticed that the more I wear sandals and ballet flats, the worse my feet begin to look. I feel like I need a pedicure every single week.I have yet to find a cream that really does the trick and heals my "heels." I will definitely be looking into this. Looks like it worked magic for you and my feet need a little TLC!

      My feet are exactly like that! But I can not give up on my flats and flip flops – love them too much! It worked like a dream 🙂 It really felt like it created a protective barrier over the cracks to help the healing process.
