Avène Cicalfate Repair Cream | Review

Avène Cicalfate Repair Cream - £7.50

I've started to suffer from slightly red patches right under my nose. I have no idea what is it or why it's there... It's not sore and I'm not suffering from a cold, but for some reason it's appeared and won't go away! It's pretty dry, so it's a struggle to cover it up with concealer. I decided to try out some new face creams, dedicated for sensitive skin, to see if this will help.

My mum actually told me about Avène's Cicalfate repair cream, but as I'm not a regular user of the brand, I was both intrigued and worried about trying it. It's kind of like a 'barrier' for your skin - helping your skin to heal quicker by protecting its environment. For this reason, I guess it's good for really irritated skin compared to just a bit of redness.

Avène Cicalfate Repair Cream is a lovely cream, quite thick but very easily to apply and spread on your skin. It doesn't take long for it to sink into your skin to help moisturise and soothe your irritated skin. You only need to apply a small amount on the areas you want to 'repair'. Just a warning though, the cream is quite oily, so may not be great for oily/combination skin types!

After using it twice a day (first thing in the morning and last at night), I noticed that my skin's redness had gone down slightly but not by a lot. It wasn't as dry though, so I was able to conceal it more than usual. It's by no means a miracle product, but it does help to give the problem areas a bit of a boost in times of need.

Have you tried Avène Cicalfate Repair Cream, or can you recommend other Avène products?
