We all know the importance of hand hygiene, especially in the flu-season…but we never express the importance of hand skin care. The more I wash my hands, clean my home with agressive cleaning products and fight the winter cold outside, the worse my hands look. Think grey-ish, dry skin, red + irritated knuckles with tiny cuts…yeah not a great sight to see when we shake hands and wish each other happy holidays…I badly needed a solution for my extremely dry skin. My brother pointed me towards LA ROCHE-POSAY. He uses their products on a daily basis and is extremely enthustiastic about its results, having struggled with eczema since he was a child. He calls Cicaplast pro-recovery skincare ‘magic’ and after using it a couple of times, I have to say I agree. It is magic!
The cream is silky smooth and dries up super quick after applying it. It isn’t sticky nor oily and it doesn’t contain perfumes. It sooths and cools the skin and leaves a protecting layer, almost invisible for the eye to see but you feel it is there. I am not joking when I say that after two days of use my skin already looked better.
The product is paraben-free and 100% hypoallergenic.
I would recommend this product to anyone with troublesome skin. Please always research the contents online before purchasing it.
I also purchased the special handcream from Cicaplast which is a lot thicker and stickier. It does work its magic for dry skin and if rubbed in thorougly, feels great. What I hate about most skin creams is that the scent is often terrible, as if you’ve dipped your hands into a bowl of potpourri. This product is fragrance free and also paraben free.
Along with my order came a little bottle of LA ROCHE-POSAY Micellar water to try-out. This product is used to cleanse skin/ It removes dirt, oil and make-up. You only need a few drops to clean your entire face, I used a cotton pad to apply it. The liquid formula is almost water-like, and unlike most cleansing liquids this one isn’t oily (= oil free formula). When applied to the skin it gives a fresh, cooling sensation. It dries up very quickly too. It is meant for sensitive skin and has no scent or perfumes added. It is also paraben free. My first thought was ‘no way this magic water can get rid of all my make-up’, but I was wrong, with a few wipes I was make-up free. Maybe it is magic water after all. I highly recommend this product!
