Sudocrem: Skincare Cream

A few weeks ago Sudocrem contacted me and offered to send me some samples of the Sudocrem Skincare Cream - and like most, I said yes!

I love sudocrem and have always had it in the bathroom cabinet for as long as I can remember - my Mum's always got some in the house and since they brought out this little tube, well it's on me at all times.

As I mentioned, they did email me a few weeks ago and I've held off from posting about it just to give myself plenty of time to utilise the sample (even though I've used it for years).

Now if I'm completely honest, I don't think there's much difference between the tube and the tubs that you can buy (other than the packaging) - I haven't got both to compare ingredients etc. Both are very similar in consistency - a thick creamy consistency that once worked in to the skin is absorbed.

 Apologies for the marks on the tube-it's been bashed around in my handbag!


When I think of sudocrem, I always think of it as a cream for nappy rash (and I just popped one of these tubes *bought with my own money* in to a baby hamper that I created for my pregnant friend) but it has an abundance of uses! I'm sure most of you in the beauty world are aware of how AMAZING it is when a pesky little spot decides to rear it's ugly head! It's great for dry skin because it is so think in consistency. But my most recent use for it has been on sunburn - following my weekend at Wimbledon, I was very silly and got burnt to a crisp *slaps wrist for being so stupid and not packing sunscreen* so I needed something that was going to moisturise my skin to help it with the healing process and this fitted the bill perfectly! The handy little tube was brilliant for popping in my handbag and using on the go for a constant application of cream to poor little red shoulders!

If you haven't tried this cream (I'm sure you have) I would definitely recommend!

This 30g tube retails for around £1.99 (however I have seen it in my local pound stores - which inevitably means I have stocked up and have tubes all over my dressing room) which I think is reasonable - a little goes a long way!

What do you use Sudocrem for?

  1. I've never seen the tube version, must look out for them! I love Sudocrem for nasty spots but I also put it on some suncream and it worked a treat! x

  2. I've heard the tube isn't medicated like the Sudocrem in a tub though? I have a little tub which I use solely for spots before I go to bed. It's not attractive having white bits on your face but it sure does work! xx

  3. @Sara, Sequin This - from what I can tell on the packaging and what I've been able to google they seem to have the ingredients! XX
