Cicaplast Baume B5+

Cicaplast Baume B5+ product review

Oily/Resilient

This beloved product was reformulated and I heard mixed opinions. Some ingredients were removed, and many new ones were added. Some of the new ingredients are: corn starch, centella leaf extract, lactobacillus, vitamin E and vitreoscilla ferment. Corn starch is added to reduce shine but it is still very dewy on me. The new texture is more silky, but still nourishing as before. I have combo skin and I like this new version. I won't be using this in my AM routine because it is to dewy for me. For nighttime is perfect, especially for colder days. It is effective as previous version.

Oily/Resilient

Key ingredients: - Centella Asiatica Extract - Ceramide NP - Squalene This is a wonderful night cream that will soothe the skin and repair your skin barrier. It contains Centella Extract and 4 active compounds of Centella like Madecassoside and Asiaticoside. Other notable ingredients are Ceramide NP, Squalene, Panthenol and Jojoba Oil. Ingredients are very simple and suitable for all skin types. This is fragrance free and vegan. My experience: Oh wow, I adore this cream! It has a soft creamy texture, it is so lightweight but nourishing at the same time. I have used this every night for the past 2 months and my skin feels amazing! I never had a product that made my skin super soft and smooth the next morning. I also use it as my day cream when applied in a thin layer. This is fantastic for all skin types, especially if you use a lot of actives. It's not greasy on the skin and I can go to bed without worrying that my pillowcase will stick to my face. This also comes in a huge tube (80 ml) and it will last for a long time. My go-to repairing cream was Cicaplast B5 but I think I have found my new favorite.

It contains a high amount of centella extract and ceramides to fortify skin barrier and to soothe the skin.

Texture is milky and lightweight. Serum absorbs fast without the sticky feeling of the skin. I love to use this before retinol. This is a fantastic addition to my evening routine, especially now when it's colder outside.

Oily/Resilient

Key ingredients: Panthenol Squalene Fermented Forest Yeast Centella This is thick night cream for those who need soothing and moisture. Forest Yeast is used as a soothing star ingredient. It is more powerful than Madecassoside from Centella and provides the same benefits. This product is vegan and free of artificial fragrance. It does have essential oils, but the scent is barely noticable. My experience: My skin gets dehydrated in winter and this is perfect cream for my pm routine. It is thick, but it doesn't feel heavy on the skin and it absorbs nicely. It keeps my skin hydrated throughout the night. The texture is so smooth, it feels nourishing, and not greasy. Even though I have oily t-zone this cream is so good! My skin feels softer and smoother in the morning. I do notice some light scent from the essential oils only when I'm applying it near my nose, and the scent fades quickly. This is definitely one of my favorite night creams and I will repurchase it again!

Full Fit Propolis Synergy Toner

I’m a big fan of cosrx products, not gonna lie. ______ I’ve been using the COSRX PROPOLIS SYNERGY TONER🐝 since roughly September 2020, so for a while now, though not consistently every day (so many toners to try out!). ______ What initially surprised me about this toner is its consistency. It is far less viscous than expected, given that propolis-containing products tend to be on the richer and thicker side. It feels a bit sticky when you run it through your fingers though, so it isn’t quite as water-like as a first treatment essence. ______ The Propolis Synergy Toner🌻 is alcohol-, essential oil- and fragrance-free, which will make many of you very happy to hear. ______ I tend to use this toner in the mornings due to its light feel on the skin and the fact that it so smoothly glides onto the skin, playing well with any skincare or makeup products that follow in the routine. ______ 🔆To sum up This is a great, gentle toner for a variety of skin types, from dehydrated to acne-prone and oily, since it delivers hydration without overpowering the skin. . The propolis and honey🐝 extract can support a damaged skin barrier, plus help with redness and potentially even scarring from healed breakouts.

Oily/Resilient

Key ingredients: Honeysuckle Flower Extract Tea Tree Leaf Extract 5 types of Hyaluronic Acid 6 types of Centella Ceramide NP 2 Peptides This is a wonderful calming and barrier repairing serum. It contains Honeysuckle which is known for its anti-inflammatory and soothing properties. 6 types of Centella and Ceramides will help with strengthening skin barrier. Peptides will boost collagen production and Hyaluronic Acid will provide deep hydration. There is also PHA (Gluconolactone) for gentle daily exfoliation. It's fragrance free. This combination of ingredients is wonderful if you are looking for multifunctional serum. My experience: I already love cream from this collection and this serum is no exception. It's very hydrating and lightweight, just what I need for summer. This would be great for combo and oily skin types because it's not heavy. Texture is viscose and it absorbs fast without stickiness. I love the hydration and calming effect. This is also nice to use before actives like Vitamin C or Retinol to calm potential irritation. Overall, this is a nice serum with many benefits. If you want a multi functional serum this one is a good choice. It's not that expensive and it also comes in a set with cream and toner.
