Bioderma Cicabio Crème (3/5)

This is a soothing repairing cream for irritated and damaged skin.  Used by dermatologists, often for patients who have had a dermabrasion, laser treatment or similar.  It is supposed to help restore the epidermis.
It is a hypoallergenic, clinically smelling cream (no fragrance added which is a good thing) and goes on smoothly.  I did find that it was calming for the skin and softening, it may have accelerated healing, but that is always difficult to test unless you leave a patch naked from the cream.

I tried it on my decollete and face. It is antibacterial and helps prevent bacteria spreading, this is the zinc sulphate and copper sulphate in the make up of the cream.  Zinc is very good for boosting your immune system. My only criticism is that once the cream is on it can start to rub off  when touched, or appear flaky; it didn't absorb  as well as I was expecting.  I couldn't use it under make up for that reason also. I would recommend therefore using this cream post treatment or on irritated skin, at night, or if you are not going out anywhere.
