Cicaplast Lips - €5.50*
Winter is now well under way and while I look after my skin all year round, I give it a little more attention in the winter to make sure it's properly hydrated - those cold winds can really dry it out.
The first area of my skin to get affected is my lips, and when La Roche-Posay launched their Cicaplast lips in Malta, I couldn't wait to try it out. I'm already a big fan out their Anthelios Stick SPF 50+ that I carry around with me in summer so I had high expectations for this, and I can tell you I was wasn't disappointed.
When it comes to lip balms I can be quite picky. For lip care I prefer not to use products with petroleum jelly, as it acts as a barrier rather hydrating your lips and I'm happy that Cicaplast is free from petroleum jelly as well as lanolin. As horrible as Lanolin is, I know it works well on my lips keeping them soft and smooth, but I have seen the same results with Cicaplast as I have had with lanolin based products, which I'm very happy about - all the benefits without the icky factor! I've been using this product for the last 3 weeks and report back that it does work. My lips have stayed hydrated and soft even in the harsh weather we've been having.
The balm comes in a squeezable tube and the product is quite thick but applies easily to the lips and goes on clear with immediate results.
A little off topic but something I had to share - Did you know what La Roche-Posay is available in every pharmacy in Malta? This makes me happy!
Next time your in a pharmacy be sure to grab some of this to keep in your handbag, your lips will thank you for it!
