La Roche-Posay is one of the most dermatologist-recommended brands in the world. (And the number-one skin-care brand of 2023.) Famous for its simple yet effective ingredients, their products are well-tolerated by all skin types. Beauty editors sing its praises through numerous gift guides. Celebrities count as some of the brand’s biggest fans.

The drugstore staple has enough range to build your entire skin-care routine, but the highlight may very well be Cicaplast Balm B5. Fans of this thick, multi-use cream swear it does everything from soothe dry skin, reduce irritation, protect the skin barrier, calm inflammation and even heal wounds. Intrigued? Now’s the perfect time to try it. As part of La Roche-Posay’s Holiday Countdown Sale the best-selling balm is 10% off with the code BALM10. But don’t wait—this special offer is for one day only.

If the colder months find your face feeling more hostile than usual, Cicaplast is an affordable favorite among dermatologists. It’s semi-occlusive (so even though made as a thicker formula skin can still breathe), noncomedogenic (won’t clog pores) and fragrance and steroid-free, ideal for sensitive skin types.

Davie, FL dermatologist Marianna Blyumin-Karasik, MD recommends Cicaplast to “reinforce the skin barrier” to make “skin more resilient and balanced.” Los Angeles dermatologist Divya Shokeen, MD names it her “personal go-to” during winter. New York dermatologist Robert Finney, MD recommends it, “especially over top of retinoids on the face if a patient is on them and has combination skin,” he says. Celeb makeup artist Florrie White named Cicaplast as one of her most-used products to “banish dry lips.”

The bottom line: it’s hard to find a reason not to add Cicaplast Balm B5 to your routine. Get it for 10% off with the code BALM10 today only.
