This cream is a great moisturizer and very good for healing. I wish it smelled a little better, but can over look that part, because of the other benefits.

everybody should have this at home. It works on every type of skin. A little pricey to get outside of France, but totally worth it. I bought several tubes (8) at once from ebay, and it was about $19 per tube (including the shipping to US), it is refreshing when I apply it on my very sensitive acne prone skin, it never breaks me out, I would recomend it to every person that has delicate skin (even though it is supposed to be used mainly for burns). I am super happy with my purchase, and will keep this cream around for life hehe. In resume, totally worth the hype! Try it!!

It's been a long time since I posted. I'm about a decade older than when I last posted about makeup, glitter and miscellaneous youthful lusts. Now, I want products that can keep my skin youthful and glowing. This is good stuff. I bought a huge tube for 4 euros at a Paris pharmacies. Completely worth it. Will load up on my next trip. Heals cracked skin, scrapes, dry patches etc etc. Believe the hype. I use it on my face after my IPL's. Soothes the face of any burned/toasted facial skin.

I realize that this is the equivalent of the French lusting after Neosporin, but Biafine was the very first thing I bought when I walked into a pharmacie in Paris.

However, it saved me almost immediately on that trip because like an idiot, I walked 12 miles the first day in new shoes and promptly got hotspots on my heels. A little Biafine on that area and bam, no blister or soreness by the next morning. BOOM. Also got a tiny bit of sunburn and a thin layer of Biafine soothed it instantly.

I was so impressed by this magic that I also bought the Biafine lip balm (called CicaBiafine Baume Levres) and now kind of wish I'd picked up the hand cream as well.

I paid 6 (about $8 USD) for a large 140g metal tube that will last me for years. The active ingredient is trolamine, which is prescription-only in the U.S.

I really love this product. It's used by dermatologists as a post-laser cream, and I use it after IPL treatments. It's wonderful. It doesn't offer any moisture really, just soothing. It is fragranced and I LOVE the smell - it has that French cosmetics smell that I can't get enough of. I do find it to be very soothing after any kind of treatment that leaves my skin red and raw, but for my highly reactive, rosacean, supersensitive dry skin, I can't use it long-term (maybe because of the fragrance). It's fine if I use it after washing for a few days after my IPL treatment, but if I use it for longer than 3 days, I do start to break out from it. Short-term it's great though - and if you don't have sensitive skin, you'd probably do just fine with it.

I finally bought a tube of this on my 4th trip to Paris in 5 years and my only regret is not buying one 5 years ago. Everyone needs this. It's seriously that amazing.

I've been using the biafine emulsion on scars I have from fairly major surgery in dec of 2012 for under a week and the improvement in my scars is noting short of shockingly dramatic. I have reliously used silicone scar sheets, mederma, bio-oil and rosehip seed oil every single day since my dr okay'd me to start on them but all of the others combined do not compare to the biafine.

I also have been using it on some minor breakouts and the healing time is substantially faster and the red marks I'm usually left with for weeks is already gone.

Finally, I burned my arm taking something out of the oven two days ago, used biafine almost immediately and while still red and looks like a burn it hasn't hurt at all or blistered at any point.

I'm not thrilled at the cost difference of buying in the US since I paid like 6 euros for the tube I bought but if I run out before I can get back to Paris to stock up, I'll definitely be paying to buy it here.

The most amazing thing known to man. Seriously. This heals scabs, wounds... This even help chapped lips & pretty much any skin issue. I will never be without.

My skin has never been so hydrated. I use it for everything! Daily on my face. Even in a hot, humid climate I never feel the biafine running down with my sweat, or at the gym. I feel as if my skin is healthier, hydrated, and less wrinkled since I started using about a year ago. I also use it for cuts and burns, super fast healing time. That even goes for cuts on my dogs, I slather it on to speed up healing. Seems to work! Highly recommend.

Just to clarify what other users have written, you CAN buy Biafine emulsion without a prescription in the US. I got a very bad sunburn, was written an Rx for Biafine, given Prutect (generic), and ran out before insurance would cover a refilll. Generic Biafine is $87 for 45 grams at the drugstore. I got real Biafine (93 grams) for $68 (plus 5 free beauty samples!) from beautystoredepot.com (without an Rx), overnight express from FedEx because I was desperate. It arrived today, so I know it's legit. Biafine smells nicer than Prutect, seems less thick, is more absorbent, and so far is working very well. It has a pleasant tingling sensation that Prutect doesn't have, maybe because of the higher degree of absorbency. Prutect also left a waxy coating on skin that Biafine doesn't, although both contain paraffin. Prutect tends to cause more itching as the waxy coating dries and flakes off after several hours (there is wax all over my sheets, my clothes, and the floor). If your insurance won't cover Prutect (co-pays are usually about $15), Biafine is a great option (and available without an Rx if you know where to look). Most Rx's will tell you to apply it BID (twice a day) in a thin layer over damaged skin.
