      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Heals the skin.

      Having lots of grandchildren means lots of accidents falling over and hurting them hurting themselves. Like all children they graze their knees and just need a little antiseptic cream to help heal the skin. This cream is a product that I often buy.

      The cream comes housed in a tube and has a screw off top. It is easy to squeeze the tube to squeeze out the cream. It is a white coloured cream and has an antiseptic smell. Just the usual smell of an antiseptic cream. A pleasant enough smell and not too strong a smell of antiseptic.

      The cream is very good for minor cuts and grazes, also good for spots and small abrasions. When my grandchildren fall over and graze their knees etc, this cream works really well to help heal the graze. I is a soft textured cream and with a little gentle rub on the skin and then just leaving it for a while it soaks into the skin in around 15 minutes or so. I use it for when I have a few spots on my face from shaving, it isn't often I have spots but sometimes I have some that won't go away naturally, so I just apply a small amount of the cream on the tip of my finger and rub it a little bit and then just leave it. Normally the next day the spot has almost gone. So it works in no time for healing spots.

      It does help to soothe irritations on the skin, it fights infections and heals them quite quickly, used over a couple of days. For scratches it helps to heal them and stop them from feeling sore. Nothing worse than an irritating scratch and it feeling sore. It doesn't feel too greasy on the skin and just helps the skin heal well.

      It can be used on the skin and just left to soak in and also used with a plaster or dressing over the wound. Any way used it does heal the wound in no time and just leaves it back in a healed condition.

      It can be used for chapped skin too, sometimes in the winter I have chapped skin on my hands and use a little of the cream to just help it a little bit, it helps to soften my skin and leave it in the normal condition again.

      This is a good quality cream. It is cheap enough to buy and I bought mine from my local shop for only 99p for a 30g tube. This is a good price and good value for money. I will keep on buying this brand, it works well to heal any skin irritations and cuts which occur for my grandchildren and family.

      Always use clean fingertips to rub into the skin so not to cause more infection.

      I recommend this cream, it works and is cheap to buy and I will keep buying it.

      I rate it 5 stars.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Stands up well against premium brands.

        I always have a well stocked first aid cupboard and in it I always have an antiseptic cream for treating minor cuts and grazes. I stumbled upon the Care Antiseptic First Aid Cream in a local discount store for about 50p and thought it would be good value for money - especially if it stood up well in comparison to the usual brands I use.

        The packaging has plenty of detail on it and isn't plain like a lot of the cheaper brands I have seen. There is a picture of someone holding their injured arm and the words 'Care Antiseptic First Aid Cream' to the side of it. The Care logo is stamped proudly above this. I think overall the box that the tube is contained within is quite standard and gives no indication that this is a budget product. Inside the box is the tube of antiseptic cream with its protective foil cover on for hygiene reasons. The tube contains 30g so there is a reasonable quantity for your money. The cream is typically white in colour and is just like any other cream of this nature I have used in the past. The scent is obviously an antiseptic one and this is reassuring as it is just what I would expect.

        Within the box there is also an instruction and guidance leaflet, giving details on directions for use and any common side-effects or problems you may encounter. This is all pretty standard procedure and there is nothing either complicated or unnecessary in the text.

        Obviously I am happy with the initial visual and physical qualities that this product has, but the real test is in the results. Application is very simple, I just apply the cream to the desired area. This cream is designed for use on minor burns, abrasions and nappy rash, although this can also cover cuts that you wish to treat aswell. The first time I used this I had a nasty graze on my elbow having fallen over. The cream kept the graze clean and it healed up nicely without infection. I always wash the wound before application, and it is also important to wash your hands if you are applying the cream by hand. An alternative method could be cotton wool.

        The cream leaves my hands feeling soft after application, so it does have more uses than those stated on the packaging, although it does make a terrific antiseptic solution and I have to award it the full stars as the price is so very reasonable and the results were certainly not short of the premium brand antiseptic creams.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        See review.

        Having an antiseptic cream in my medicine cabinet is essential in my opinion for me and I think it is for everyone because it is something that we will all find handy in there to use at some time or other in my opinion and I always make sure I have one or 2 available for when I need to use it.

        I bought this one recently for only 90p for a 30g tube, I think this was a good price for an antiseptic cream because this type of cream is priced a little higher and so I thought it was a little saving on the price and worth a try. The tube comes inside a cardboard box packaging.

        The tube has a screw off top which is very easy to twist to remove. The cream inside the tube is white in colour, it is very easy to squeeze the cream from the tube with no problems at all because the hold at the top of the tube is quite a big one but not so large that too much of the cream comes out of it too fast and then makes a mess. The cream has a really nice soft texture to it, it is extremely smooth and it has a nice smell to it. It is a little clinical but not a nasty smell at all. It is a nice mild, pleasant smell and one that I find quite a nice one.

        The cream is easy to apply by just squeezing a small amount from the tube onto the fingertips and then just rubbing directly into the area it is to be applied. I find that this one is not at all too greasy or sticky. It takes around 10 minutes or so to soak into the skin if applied just as a cream. It can be used with a dressing if required too and I have only used it once with a plaster and I have found that the plaster has not been too slippery or moved around too much. I have used it a few times on my little grandson's knees when he has fallen over and grazed them slightly. A little of this cream has been adequate enough to sooth the area on his knees and left them healed in no time.

        This cream is ideal for using for minor burns, nappy rashes, abrasions and any minor cuts that are on the skin and not too deep a cut. It is just for those little skin irritations that need a little antiseptic cream to heal them and make the skin feel a little less sore or irritated. I tend to scratch myself sometimes while I am sleeping and I sometimes wake up with sore scratch marks on my skin in the morning and so I have just used a little of this cream on the scratches to help heal them and in no time they have healed very well. I find this cream is also good for tiny blemishes on the skin and spots that have appeared from nowhere and the cream has helped to remove them in a couple of days and to also help clear the spot.

        I have not used it as a nappy rash cream as yet but it does say on the box that it can be used for nappy rashes. The cream does not sting when applied, it just soothes the area just perfectly in the same way as other branded creams on the market but this one is just that little less in the price. It is excellent quality and very good value for the price in my opinion.

        It can be used for adults, children and the elderly. So worth buying it and storing it in the medicine cabinet for all the family.

        We all get irritating scratches and cuts on our skin from time to time and so a cream is sometimes the quickest way of healing them and for the little ones it is more essential to use one to heal their skin much quicker so they are happy little bunnies.

        I find only a small amount is needed each time with this one and so the tube does last for quite some time. I do also think this one has the same healing effects as the branded ones and I cannot honestly tell the difference in the way it heals the skin or with the smell of it. The smell is slightly less clinical but that is not a bad thing because it works in exactly the same way but just a tad cheaper in price.

        I would certainly recommend this cream for anyone looking to buy a cheaper brand and one that works exactly the same. I will definitely buy it again in the future because it gives me the same results as a branded antiseptic cream in my opinion.

        I give it 5 stars.

        Thank you for reading my review and I hope it has been of some help.

          Antiseptic cream

          Care antiseptic first aid cream

          I always like to keep some kind of antiseptic cream in the house and in the car ready for cuts and grazes.

          This is basically an antiseptic cream which can be used for minor burns abrasions and nappy rash and is suitable for use on children and adults. Although it doesn't state it on the packaging, I assume also that it can be used on cuts and grazes, so have been using it effectively of Little Miss's knees, both of which are grazed at the moment.

          The cream itself is packaged in a box with the instructions on the sides, and inside the box is, as expected, a 30g tube with a screw on/off lid. There is the usual spike on the top of the lid which I use to pierce the foil protector, and then i can get to the cream. The cream, when I squeeze it out, is white and creamy and has an antiseptic smell, whcih is quite reassuring as I would hate for it to smell floral! The cream should, as directed, be applied directly to the injured part of the skin. It does rub easily into the skin leaving it feeling nice and soft if used on the hands as a hand cream and thankfully it doesn't sting, as this would spell the end of its useage on Little Miss.

          There are, as ever, a number of warnings such as the fact that you should consult your doctor before using if pregnant and also that prolonged use should be avoided as it could lead to sensitivity. These are common sense things and there is nothing particularly worrying about the warnings.

          The cream was bought in a local bargain store close to where i work and cost only 99p, so this represented great value and was just right when i had run out of my usual antiseptic cream and needed something fast for the aforementioned injured knees.

          VERDICT...

          This cost a fraction of the price of some of the more well known brands of antiseptic cream and for what we needed it for, it proved to be very effective. The grazes were kept clean and healed nicely and there was no stinging or really strong antiseptic smell, just enough to let me know that it was probably working.

          I have also been using it on my hands as a general hand cream because I have a number of very small cuts which I don't want to get infected and it has made my hands nice and soft.

          For anyone wanting a good quality antiseptic cream without paying too much this is a good one.

          Thanks for reading.
