The products Beautygeeks recommends

I recommend these three items a lot a lot a lot -- can't live without them. Don't make me.

The latest Lipstick League question is this: what product do you recommend more than anything else? Right now it's a bit of a toss-up between Fresh Sugar Lip Serum Advanced Therapy, Bite Agave Lip Mask, and La Roche-Posay Cicaplast Epidermal Recovery Accelerator. I think because I've been recommending Cicaplast for years, it wins here. Not to be confused with the newer-to-Canada Cicaplast Baume (great as a mask and moisturizer for sensitive dry skin, btw), La Roche-Posay Cicaplast Epidermal Recovery Accelerator is a must for recently wounded skin. Derms recommend it to post-procedure patients to help skin heal faster and without scars. I've recommended it to people with bike-accident scrapes, horribly cracking lips and more, and every bit of feedback = amazing.

Avene makes a similar cream named Cicalfate which is apparently just as good; I haven't used it that often. Frankly it's because I have a relationship with La Roche-Posay Cicaplast. I've been to the La Roche-Posay region in France and seen LRP's special facilities for terrible skin conditions, and a few years ago Cicaplast helped my poor raw skin recover quickly after a terrible, welt-y microdermabrasion experience. I can't live without it. (Funny thing: I have Cicaplast, Fresh Sugar Lip Serum and Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask all in my purse right. this. minute. Coincidence?)
