I have been talking about and recommending the La Roche-Posay Cicaplast Baume B5 on this blog for many years. I first discovered it in France when I would wander around the pharmacies for hours, picking up bottles and tubes and buying anything that said ‘soothing’, ‘cooling’ or ‘for sensitive skin’. Recently La Roche-Posay released Cicaplast Gel B5 and I have been trying it out for a few months, wanting to gather my thoughts before I shared them with you.

How to sooth dry itchy skin: La Roche-Posay Cicaplast range. These products are great on my sensitive rosacea skin, but can also be used on nappy rash, sunburn, scrapes, post-peel or post-surgery skin!

Many, many months ago I promised a blog post all about vegan skincare for sensitive skin. I had originally wanted someone who was actually vegan (i.e. not me!) to write the post as that would make the most sense: someone who knows the best brands, who has more information about parent companies, and could answer questions. But my plan fell through. So I decided to go about it in a different way…

Hopefully you’ll all be familiar with the format of my Skincare Shake Up posts, but just in case you’re new here: every month I post a round up of the products I used in the previous month so I can share my thoughts with you. There are usually some tried and trusted favourites that have popped up year after year, but I also try out new products and formulas. I have rosacea and seborrheic dermatitis so my skin is very picky about the products it likes. I try to include information any potential irritants in the summary of each product as I know that some products that are great for my skin might not be appropriate for others. I’m not a trained dermatologist, I have just tried A LOT of products over the past 13 years and wanted to share my experiences. Right! Enough waffle… let’s crack on with my Skincare Shake Up: April ’18 edition!

In the past month I’ve spent over 24 hours on board an aeroplane. Typically I would dread flights – firstly because I hate, hate, hate flying and spend the whole time convinced we’re all going to die… but secondly because my skin always kicks off after a flight. However, that all changed this time and a lot of people on instagram asked me to share my tips on how to deal with rosacea and long haul flights. Ask and you shall receive!
