Things have been a little quiet on the blog in the past 6 months and we are long overdue a catch up about my skin as a lot has happened and I’ve had a lot of questions on instagram and FB about how I’ve been coping with it. So get settled for my Skincare Shake Up, covering the past few months.

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!

I am never fully satisfied with my skincare routine. I am a total hussy when it comes to new products, always wondering if THE product that will transform my skin is just around the corner. I like to find affordable versions of high end products, I like to find independent brands who fill their skincare with as much love as they do science, and I also try to find things that suit all pockets and preferences. Every month when I select new products to try, I get really excited and I always look forward to telling you about them. So I’m pleased to present last month’s Skincare Shake Up featuring a few old favourites, new additions, and some exciting brand-new launches.

Some of you may have noticed that there was no Skincare Shake Up post last month. I ended up extending my holiday in France at the last minute and by the time I got back into London I had missed the beginning of the month change over. I didn’t want to try out products for less than a month because I like to give things a proper test, so I just started my new skincare routine when I got home and tried it out for half of July and all of August instead. And here is that routine in full…
