The new La Roche-Posay cicaplast B5 serum is a spin on its viral B5 balm – here’s our review

The dermatology-led French skincare brand strikes again with a winner

The significance of protecting and fortifying the skin’s barrier is well known, but it’s also easy to damage. Factors like excessive use of strong acids, harsh weather, over-exfoliation, or exposure to allergens, irritants, and pollutants can lead to such damage. However, La Roche-Posay’s bestselling cicaplast baume B5+ ultra-repairing soothing balm, which gained popularity on TikTok last year for its restorative properties, has been effective in fixing such damage. Although some found it to be too thick or heavy and weren’t aware it was suitable for use on the face. The brand’s latest release, cicaplast baume B5 serum, addresses these concerns. It works like the balm, forming a thin layer on the skin that shields it against external aggressors and promotes healing, soothing, and repair. The serum is safe for daily use, and we were one of the first to try it out. Read on to discover our candid impressions and see how it compares to the original formula.
