If I was stranded on an island and I could only bring 2 things with me, it would be these 2 babies. So in love with them because they offer me endless and unconditional love and hydration, hello!!! This is why I love them and will continue to repurchase them…unless I find something better (I kinda doubt that).
The first product I cannot live without is Avene’s Cicalfate Repair Cream. This little metal tube of white thick emollient is ready to rescue skin from any mishap. Slight burns, dry spots, over exfoliated skin, hair removal sores…the bunch.
This potent cream has anti-bacterial agents that encourage healing, which is amazing to protect irritated skin. It is also perfect for sensitive skin because it is fragrance and paraben free. Its combination of copper sulfate and zinc sulfate reduces the risk of bacterial proliferation. Let me tell you that it is super super soothing to those who have fragile skin.
It was recommended to me by the allergist after going through endless creams to help protect and sooth my irritated, allergic skin (especially my eyelids..thank you contact dermatitis :(..blah!). Now, I cannot live without this baby, especially when I have bad eczema outbreaks. Thankfully this hydrates my skin without causing further damage or breakouts.
The CICALFATE CREAM is formulated for dry irritations in adults, children, and infants. It can be applied on skin or parts such as the lip (I have used it a few times as lip balm) or nostril (especially when you have a cold). This tube was about 20-30$ at the pharmacy and it lasts for a long time because a little goes a long way. This price is really not bad for a skin savior (superman in a metal tube)….
This little tube is magical and wonderful and just all over fabulous. Bite’s agave lip mask is the answer to your chapped, irritated lips. When going on long flights, going through the super rough cold weather or simply licking your lips way too many times a day; this mask is honestly the best thing you will ever try to combat dryness. I usually put this at night before going to bed and sleep with it. Then the next morning I wake up with super soft, subtle lips. Or sometimes, when I really really need it, I will put a very thin layer in the morning. This is a very thick mask, so when you put it in the morning, you have to be careful, because sometimes it causes you to have a white film on your lips.
Basically this tube is like the perfect friend that is always there for you when you need it most. And a little goes a long way. This tube lasts forever and costs 30$ at Sephora.
So, if you were stranded on an island, hypothetically speaking, what would you want to have with you?
Until next time!
