This cream has worked wonders for my son who suffers with eczema which is further flared through allergies

2. Has using Cicaplast B5 Multi-Purpose Repairing Balm as part of your child’s routine improved your child’s overall skin condition?

twinklespells Wed 13-Jan-21 12:58:43

1. How did you find the texture and application of the Cicaplast B5 Multi-Purpose Repairing Balm?

Very easy. Product goes far so you don't need a lot. Smoothes on easily but isn't really runny like another skin cream I have used on my baby.

2. Has using Cicaplast B5 Multi-Purpose Repairing Balm as part of your child’s routine improved your child’s overall skin condition?

Yes

3. How quickly after starting to use Cicaplast B5 Multi-Purpose Repairing Balm did you notice an improvement in your child’s skin condition?

Within 12 hours

4. Did you notice an improvement in your child’s skin irritations healing process after using Cicaplast B5 Multi-Purpose Repairing Balm?

I think it healed about the same as with other creams, but the dry parts haven't recurred as often as they did with other creams.

5. Would you recommend Cicaplast B5 Multi-Purpose Repairing Balm to a friend and why?

Yes I would. It's a reasonable price point for such a cream and the product goes far. I have used LRP myself before and like the brands origins and the fact it has skin care professionals behind it and isn't just a beauty brand. Rightly or wrongly I therefore feel better about using it on my baby.

I have used LRP Cicaplast before and found it a bit too much for my needs, but I think this repairing Baum will be a great product for me too, a nice middle ground. I have been putting it on my face as a night cream and it's definitely helped my cheeks with the cold weather we have currently. Sinks in well, no strong scent and doesn't make my skin tingly.

I think it's a product that will be great to have in the nappy caddy or bathroom cupboard for various uses. I used it on the underneath of my baby's ears, her thighs, my shin and my face. Will buy myself when the trial product has run out.

Timeforsinging81 Wed 13-Jan-21 13:01:34

1. How did you find the texture and application of the Cicaplast B5 Multi-Purpose Repairing Balm?

At first I thought the texture was too thin and that it wouldn't work as a nappy cream because it didn't leave a visible barrier. But then I used some on a cracked knuckle of mine and I realised that although it was absorbed into the skin, there was definitely a layer of protection left.

2. Has using Cicaplast B5 Multi-Purpose Repairing Balm as part of your child’s routine improved your child’s overall skin condition?

I used some on my sons face too and I found it helps with teething/dribble rash and is great because it didn't leave white marks.

3. How quickly after starting to use Cicaplast B5 Multi-Purpose Repairing Balm did you notice an improvement in your child’s skin condition?

Took a while, overnight was best

I think the cream just provided protection to allow the skin to heal itself

5. Would you recommend Cicaplast B5 Multi-Purpose Repairing Balm to a friend and why?

Yes, but I'd look for it on special offer as it's fairly expensive but a tube would last a while.

2. Has using Cicaplast B5 Multi-Purpose Repairing Balm as part of your child’s routine improved your child’s overall skin condition?

No improvement as yet.

CeeceeBloomingdale Wed 13-Jan-21 13:07:24

Shayisgreat Wed 13-Jan-21 13:16:23

1. How did you find the texture and application of the Cicaplast B5 Multi-Purpose Repairing Balm?

I was a bit concerned at first that it was too light a texture and that it would have no effect on the nappy rash. But it worked really well to clear it up.

2. Has using Cicaplast B5 Multi-Purpose Repairing Balm as part of your child’s routine improved your child’s overall skin condition?

Yes, definitely. I have used it on DS's nappy rash and on his eczema. It worked better for his nappy rash than eczema.

3. How quickly after starting to use Cicaplast B5 Multi-Purpose Repairing Balm did you notice an improvement in your child’s skin condition?

The next day his nappy rash was much improved and gone by the following day. I then just used it twice a day and the rash hasn't returned.

within a few days - he had a graze on his leg from wellies and this cream really helped

yes - we put it on any dry patches and it really seemed to help

5. Would you recommend Cicaplast B5 Multi-Purpose Repairing Balm to a friend and why?
I would recommend it, although it may depend on the price. £7.50 is more than a tube of savlon (or own brand equivalent) and some may not be interested because of this.

Mrsmarshmallow Wed 13-Jan-21 13:27:14

1. How did you find the texture and application of the Cicaplast B5 Multi-Purpose Repairing Balm?

It was a lovely, thick texture. Rubbed in very easily and left a smooth feeling but not an oily residue.

2. Has using Cicaplast B5 Multi-Purpose Repairing Balm as part of your child’s routine improved your child’s overall skin condition?

The product arrived just in time as a bubble received as a Christi gift caused a flare up of eczema on both my one and three year. We applied to all dry and itchy patches and they have noticeably improved in a short space of time.

Yes we noticed that the dry patches were improved and the itchy patched were causing less irritation.

5. Would you recommend Cicaplast B5 Multi-Purpose Repairing Balm to a friend and why?

Yes, absolutely. Friends with younger children often ask for advise with their babies eczema and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this.

DownRightAmazing Wed 13-Jan-21 13:29:47

1. How did you find the texture and application of the Cicaplast B5 Multi-Purpose Repairing Balm?
It was lovely, thick and easy apply but absorbed easily

2. Has using Cicaplast B5 Multi-Purpose Repairing Balm as part of your child’s routine improved your child’s overall skin condition?

My daughter suffers occasional nappy rash and when this happens a couple of weeks ago one application was enough to clear it up. She suffers rough, dry skin under her nose and on her chin in winter and I found this is helped, the redness is less pronounced and the skin is less raw looking

3. How quickly after starting to use Cicaplast B5 Multi-Purpose Repairing Balm did you notice an improvement in your child’s skin condition?

The next day with the nappy rash (!) and after just a few days with the face

4. Did you notice an improvement in your child’s skin irritations healing process after using Cicaplast B5 Multi-Purpose Repairing Balm?

I can't say I noticed this

5. Would you recommend Cicaplast B5 Multi-Purpose Repairing Balm to a friend and why?

Yes, I thought it was excellent with my daughter who suffers rough/sore but not sensitive skin so I tried it on my son who suffers a extremely sensitive, eczema prone skin - would usually only use prescription cream on him - I was impressed that he was able to use it without irritation and it was handy for when out.

CookieBlue Wed 13-Jan-21 13:30:32

1. How did you find the texture and application of the Cicaplast B5 Multi-Purpose Repairing Balm?
Very thick but not greasy in the slightest. A little bit goes a long way.

2. Has using Cicaplast B5 Multi-Purpose Repairing Balm as part of your child’s routine improved your child’s overall skin condition?
Yes definitely. My daughters skin feels so soft.

3. How quickly after starting to use Cicaplast B5 Multi-Purpose Repairing Balm did you notice an improvement in your child’s skin condition?
I would say within a couple of days her nappy rash was looking much better.

4. Did you notice an improvement in your child’s skin irritations healing process after using Cicaplast B5 Multi-Purpose Repairing Balm?
Yes. It helped with ongoing nappy rash. It has now completely cleared up.

5. Would you recommend Cicaplast B5 Multi-Purpose Repairing Balm to a friend and why?
I would but I am quite shocked to see it retails at £7.50. I think that’s on the expensive side. If it was on offer at around the £5 mark I would be more likely to purchase.

Ruddyfedup Wed 13-Jan-21 13:36:08

1. How did you find the texture and application of the Cicaplast B5 Multi-Purpose Repairing Balm? Not overly thick but equally not so runny it was messy or unusable
2. Has using Cicaplast B5 Multi-Purpose Repairing Balm as part of your child’s routine improved your child’s overall skin condition? When the need to use it due to nappy rash was there, it did help
3. How quickly after starting to use Cicaplast B5 Multi-Purpose Repairing Balm did you notice an improvement in your child’s skin condition? A days use on nappy rash inc leaving on overnight was enough to clear it and could see it working throughout the day
4. Did you notice an improvement in your child’s skin irritations healing process after using Cicaplast B5 Multi-Purpose Repairing Balm? She was less likely to get nappy rash on the whole whilst using it, if i didnt use it for one reason or another, i could see the difference. It worked well on dry skin also
5. Would you recommend Cicaplast B5 Multi-Purpose Repairing Balm to a friend and why? Yes. It wasnt tacky or sticky. No offensive smell and didnt get absolutely everywhere on application. I think the price of 7.50 is a bit steep and an alternative nappy cream can be bought for less in a big tub but if it was on offer i would recommend it. Small, but the name could be simpler too

@LucyBMumsnet could you please confirm if my survey was submitted? I pressed the 'complete' button and it brought me straight to this thread on the app (which I thought was very clever!) but then later when I went back to my browser it was still open on the last page with the 'press here to submit' button showing - so now I'm not sure if it worked...
