Sudocrem Skincare Cream* £1.99

Say Sudocrem and the first thing that probably comes to mind are the grey pots of cream used for nappy rash, cuts, grazes, burns, eczema and much more. Sudocrem has been known as a spot treatment that has helped many people who suffer with acne to those who have the occasional breakout. Sudocrem have released a new formula specially created to be used in your skincare routine. It's gained a bit of popularity lately thanks to a few celebs, like Cheryl Cole, claiming its their skincare saviour and I can see why.

Sudocrem Skincare Cream is a very thick cream that has the same smell and feel to the original Antiseptic formula. It uses the same ingredients but in different proportions so it is a more skincare friendly and 'grown up' product than can be used as often as you like. My skin isn't necessarily spot prone but I will get a few spots due to hormones or stress.

When I get any sort of spot appearing I apply a very small amount of the Sudocrem Skincare Cream in a thin layer and leave it to sink in overnight. You really only need a tiny amount as it is a very thick formula that can feel greasy if you apply too much.
I did this last night on four under the skin spots (you know what I mean) and this morning they were almost gone, there is just the smallest hint of a bump if you touch my skin but nothing that can be seen. It really calms down my skin and soothes the redness. I've been using this as a treatment all over my skin once a week to keep bacteria and any possible future spots away, and it's safe to my skin loves it.

The Sudocrem Skincare Cream can also be used on flaky skin, dry patches, cuts etc but for me this is my new go to spot treatment. You need so little cream that this tube will last me forever and it's the perfect travel size!

For £1.99 from Boots this is worth picking up and trying out. Have you tried the Sudocrem Skincare Cream?

*update*.. I'm obviously in no way a skincare specialist this is just my experience. This might be a controversial one so let me know what you think in the comments!




*pr sample, review 100% honest as always

  2. Love the blog Ellie!

    I have to give my standard 'lecture' that Sudocrem is one of the worst things you can use on your face. It thins the skin over long term use and can actually create more congestion than it solves. Even the new formula (which is remarkably similar to the old formula; the tube is the only real thing that's changed) is still not recommended by any skin specialist worth their salt.

    Instead, look for products containing salicylic acid (BHA), glycol and lactic acids; these will help to unblock pores and remove surface dead skin cells, exposing the blemish causing bacteria to the air and removing the spot effectively and safely.

  6. I wonder what the difference is between this and the normal formula, if any?
    I'm about to have a baby so will have stacks of Sudocrem around the house, I may just use that instead. It'd be interesting to see the difference wouldn't it?
    Fab post hun! :)

    1. I've been told the ingredients and formula are the same but the proportions are different so this version is gentle enough that it can be used as often as you like on your skin :)
