Blakes Review:

Product: LaVera Barrier Cream – Opus Healthcare

Packaging

The packaging for the Lavera Barrier Cream could be mistaken for a feminine product, with its pink labelling however I would still have it with my cosmetics and don’t think it would look out of place, they packaged it well and has the clear instructions on how to use the cream displayed on the back.

Ease of use

The La Vera Barrier comes in both a tube of cream and also small sachets easy to take around with you when your out and about the sachets are small and discreet and very easy to use the nice little tear off for opening and you get a good amount of barrier cream which is easy to apply onto the skin, when using the tube of cream its easy to use a small amount and less is more! The only thing for me was I felt that the drying time was a little slow, however a small tip with the cream would be to wipe off the excess and it will then dry quicker!

Smell

The La Vera Cream has a fresh smell and not overly powering, I also felt it was incredibly unisex not overly floral.

Overall the LaVera cream does make you feel protected whilst on, however I found it didn’t suit my skin it sat on top of my skin rather than feeling like it was absorbing, however we all have very different skin types so you may find it absorbs quickly.
