|Sudocrem Skin Care Cream - £1.99*|
Although Sudocrem has long been used to treat nappy rash, it is actually a multipurpose cream that can be used to tackle other conditions like acne and dry skin too. In fact a number of celebrities swear by Sudocrem and use it as part of their skincare routines including Cheryl Cole, Kimberly Walsh and Jessica Lowndes.
Same great cream, different packaging
We always have a tub of the Sudocrem Antiseptic Healing Cream in the bathroom cabinet, so it's not a product I've recently discovered however until a month or so ago, I had no idea that it came in these handy 30ml squeezy tubes too. I have to say I much prefer the tube as it is much more hygienic (no finger dipping) and far less messy to use. It’s also the perfect size for popping in your handbag or hand luggage if you are travelling.
Whilst Sudocrem have renamed this a Skin Care Cream, it is basically the same thick white antiseptic cream in different packaging. I have no problem with this though, as I always thought the original Antiseptic Healing Cream was great for reducing redness and calming minor skin rashes anyway.
Calming flare ups and reducing redness
I use Sudocrem from time to time to reduce the redness and soreness of spot flare ups on my face but more commonly I use it to get rid of the small skin rashes on the backs of my legs that I get quite regularly. I find that after it has sunk into the skin (which can take a little while) it leaves it feeling much softer, smoother and far more presentable for no tights days!
Tips for using Sudocrem
What I will say is that when it comes to using Sudocrem a little goes a long way. Try to apply just a thin layer to the skin - any more and you’ll be trying to rub it in for hours! It is also a pain to wash off your hands if you squeeze out too much, so do be careful.
Sudocrem for acne
As an acne treatment, I can’t really say whether the Sudocrem Skin Care Cream is a great product or not as *touch wood* my skin has been pretty good recently. However as a multipurpose cream for soothing the skin on other body parts and treating dry patches, I definitely give Sudocrem the thumbs up.
The Sudocrem Skin Care Cream is a very budget friendly at just £1.99 (Boots) and is sold in most UK pharmacies and beauty stores.
