A product I never thought I'd love...

If I were to say 'Sudocrem' to you, what is the first thing that pops into your head? I'm no mind reader, but I doubt it's 'must-have beauty product'. I've always associated Sudocrem with babies, and in my house it's known as 'bum cream' (lovely!). Never did I think that I would be loving it years later.

Sudocrem is an antiseptic healing cream, normally used for nappy rash (hence the 'bum cream'), eczema and bed sores. A few weeks ago, I developed a slight rash around my mouth due to being run down and the cold weather. My mum suggested using Sudocrem which has cleared it up. After using it, I read the smaller writing on the tub and noticed it can also be used for 'acne'. Now, I wouldn't say I have acne,but, like most of you, I have (very) occasional breakouts. I decided to apply a thin layer of Sudocrem to my whole face rather than just my mouth, and the next morning I was amazed. After just one night, the red blemishes that were beginning to appear had completely disappeared!

Since then, I have been doing this every night, and I cannot believe that such a simple product is making such a transformation. The spots that I had on my face before, have not yet gone, but no new ones have appeared.

I'm not sure this product may not work for everybody, but I strongly suggest giving it a try. I was worried that it would add too much moisture to my already oily skin, but it doesn't, so if you have oily skin too, don't be afraid to give it a go.

I'm sure if you raid your bathroom cabinets you will find a tub somewhere, but if not you can get it from any supermarket or places like Boots and Superdrug. Prices range dependsing on tub size, but they are cheap and last for so long!

Have you found other uses for any products?



  1. I'm exactly the same, you just wouldn't think it would be so useful! Don't know how I'd live without it now :) x

  2. You can get them in tubes now so you dont have to stick your hand in atub like that. Tubes work really well and are travel sized too!

  3. Miracle cream. I swear by it.

  4. This sounds like perfection, I get spots too and it would be great if they just dissapeared overnight like you said :)xx

  5. I always forget sudocrem is meant to be good for skin/rashes and healing, I really probably should get some to keep in the bathroom.

  6. I've been using Sudocrem for this for ages and I love it xx

  7. I love using Sudocrem on any blemishes or red marks, it's brilliant! I currently have a small tube in my bag which is perfect for on the go or going away :)
