Sudocrem... But Not As You Know It

Sunday, 29 November 2015
If I said 'Sudocrem,' I'm pretty sure that your first though would be babies. Sudocrem is renowned for it's nappy rash healing properties so when I was asked if I would like to try the fairly new Sudocrem Skincare Cream* I was fairly sceptical at first.

However, once the tube arrived and I researched a little more, I got to understand the differences between Sudocrem and Sudocrem Skin Care Cream*. Firstly it's a tube not a tub, granted that is not the most important difference but it should be taken into account. From there on I noted that it called itself the 'grown up' version with the same ingredients in different proportions. It is targeted at teenagers and young adults with spot prone skin, (so perfect for me.) It is also claimed that it can soothe rashes and dry patches, as well as helping maintain healthy skin - bold claims. 


There seem to be many uses for the new Sudocrem so I put a few to the test:

1. As a spot cream - I get lots of random spots popping up every now and then and need something to get rid quick or I will pop them. (Yeah, I'm gross.) So I applied a bit of Sudocrem overnight to see if it would make a difference and I was happy to see that they weren't quite as noticeable, not gone but less red.

2. To clear up dry patches - If you've been reading MissCosmeticBlogger for a while you'll have heard about my dry skin and infamous dry skin around my nose. So like for the spot test I applied some of the cream around my nose and left it overnight. It actually made quite a nice impact on my skin, not all of the dry skin was gone only a good exfoliating face mask does that, but it was easier to apply makeup over.

3. As a moisturiser - Those who have used regular Sudocrem will remember the bright white colouring of the cream, and this made me wary when using as a moisturiser as I expected a white sheen to cover my face. To be honest I find it waaaay too thick to use as a daily moisturiser, also it takes more application time which I don't always have time for.

4. As a face mask - If I am honest, I couldn't bring myself to use this as a face mask, I just felt it would feel too thick on my skin. Sorry.

Now the tube contains 30g, but I can't say I am a fan of the tube itself. The Sudocrem has too thick of a consistency to come in a tube, it takes a lot of effort to dispense and I imagine the more you use the harder to get out it will become. 


Overall, this is a budget friendly (£2.11) product which is actually not bad. I prefer it as a quick fix for dry skin and spots, but you never know, you might love it as a moisturiser. Have you tried it? What did you think?

  1. I love regular Sudocrem - I get eczema in summer and it clears it up so nicely! My boyfriend also says it is a saviour for post-football groin area sores! I'd be interested in trying this new Sudocrem so it would be more portable! Also very interesting that it improved your spots!

    Great post.

  2. I find it so hard to balance out the dry patches on my face with the oilier areas on my face, this sounds like it would work really well on my dry patches. Will defo try this out x
