What is LIPIKAR AP+?
The LIPIKAR AP+ 3-step skincare routine is made up of the following products:
LIPIKAR Syndet AP+ hair and body wash
- A gentle cream wash with shea butter and glycerin to help protect your child’s skin from the drying effects of water, and lock in moisture from the bath or shower. Provides 24h hydration and 24h itch protection. Suitable for newborns.
LIPIKAR Balm AP+ soothing body balm
- This formula is enriched with glycerin, shea butter and calming niacinamide – all to immediately soothe and hydrate your little one’s dry, itchy skin. When used after LIPIKAR Syndet AP+ body wash before bed, the balm is clinically proven to provide 2 x less scratching at night. Suitable for newborns.
LIPIKAR Stick AP+ on-the-go itch relief
- Instantly relieves scratching urges and calms skin. Convenient stick design that can be used anytime, anywhere to soothe dry skin flare-ups. Perfect to keep in your handbag or for your child to take to school or nursery. Suitable for babies from three months. Use on dry and/or itchy patches or flare-ups as often as needed.
What do Mumsnet users think?
“It’s amazing; very rich and creamy but not at all greasy, and seemed to sink in quickly. Brilliant when wrangling a wriggly 10-month-old who really doesn’t like getting dressed after bath time. It was quick, easy and fuss-free. Loved the pump on the bottles for easy one-handed application as well.”
“Saw an improvement within a few days. I’m having to bath my baby every day at the moment because of baby-led weaning. Normally this can irritate her skin but we didn’t find that with these products.”
“They have really helped my son's dry skin and eczema. We especially liked the itch relief stick – it's now in our changing bag and we use it when we're out and about. Our son didn't mind having the cream applied – it absorbed quite easily and moisturised well.”
“We applied at night before bed and the next morning there was a significant improvement of the appearance of her poor skin.”
“Overall I was delighted with the results using. I will definitely be buying it again when this runs out (which will be a while actually because you don’t need to use a lot). I’ve already recommended the range to friends and am very grateful for the opportunity to try it.”
“Can honestly say that it delivered all that it claimed.”
What did La Roche-Posay say?
“We’re delighted to have won Mumsnet Rated for our LIPIKAR AP+ skincare range, which provides parents with a solution to keep their child’s skin under control. The LIPIKAR AP+ wash and body balm, enriched with shea butter and glycerin, will immediately soothe and hydrate your child’s dry, itchy skin, with calming Niacinamide to help provide 24h itch protection.
Use the LIPIKAR Syndet AP+ gentle moisturising wash in the bath followed by the soothing LIPIKAR Balm AP+ for up to two times less scratching at night – meaning longer nights and better days for the whole family. 9/10 UK Dermatologists would recommend La Roche-Posay*."
