Never seen a diamond in the flesh...

Cold season is upon as, and that means only one thing. Rudolph nose time. Although I have been lucky enough to escape a cold so far (touch wood), I did come down with an awful something during the Summer, and the only thing that helped with all my red and chapped skin on my face was this Cicaplast from La Roche-Posay.



This is one of the products that I picked up during my trip to Paris earlier in the year. It's the only one that I bought with no prior knowledge of the product, but as I know that I always get flaking, chapped skin at some point during the year, I thought it might be worth picking up, especially as I hadn't seen it with the normal La Roche-Posay line that you find in Boots in the UK.



The packaging is the same as other La Roche-Posay products of the same sizing, like the Effaclar range etc, and I have no problems with it. It's simple, effective, minimilizes wasted product and looks nice and neat on my bathroom shelf.



As for how the product works, like I said earlier, it was the only thing that helped when I had really flaked and chapped skin. I tend to put it on before bed, as it's a little bit too thick and greasy to wear during the day, and I wake up with my skin feeling soothed and far less red and chapped. Now, I'm not going to say this is a miracle worker and that it healed my skin completely in one night (if anyone has a miracle product like that, I'd love to hear about it), but it did help with the healing process, and I noticed a difference in how quickly the chapped skin went away.

Do you have a go to product like this when a cold strikes? Let me know!

love, Naomi

  6. I have to say I've tried the Duo and wasn't really impressed, while I loved their micellar. Might just give this a try. :) x
