Savlon Antiseptic Cream
Advantages: Good for cuts and grazes
I have lots of grandchildren and it is always handy to have a tube of this antiseptic cream in my medicine cabinet. As we all know children fall over and cut themselves all the time and so having a cream of this sort handy is essential for most households and mine is always stocked with this one or other brands.
The cream is inside a tube of which has a screw off top, the tube is blue and it has the name clearly on the front, the tube comes inside a cardboard box. The cream is a nice soft texture, it has a slight clinical smell and one that is quite a pleasant smell. The smell is not too strong. It can be used for lots of different infections. It can be used for cuts, grazes, chapped skin, rashes, spots and lots of other infected areas. I think it is good to use on my skin when I sometimes cut myself while shaving. I sometimes just cut the skin slightly and sometimes it can be quite sore and so I just dab a small amount of this cream onto the cut and it heals very quickly. I find that it heals some wounds quicker than some others, depending on the severity of the wound. If it is a very bad cut or graze, then the length of time to heal is a few days but if it is only a small cut etc, the next day the cut can be healed completely. It can be used for insect bites and stings. Also for sores and blisters.
I use it for when my grandchildren fall or cut themselves. This cream I use on these areas and it tends to heal them well and helps to ease the pain when the skin is cut. It soothes the skin and helps to make my grandchildren feel a little better. Only a small amount is needed to heal the skin. It is quite greasy at first when it is applied but it soon soaks into the skin after around half an hour or so, depending on how much is applied to the skin. With more deeper cuts I just use a little more onto the area and cover it with a dressing and then it usually works into the wound to help ease the infected area.
It can be purchased from most chemists and supermarkets. It costs around £1.80 for a 30g tube and around £2.60 for a 60g tube. So I think it is best to buy the larger size and save a little more money.
This is a lovely cream that works well on cuts etc. I think it heals skin irritations in no time at all and for the price I just think it is a good quality cream and one that is excellent value for money. It is worth the price and the tube does last for quite some time in a cabinet. It is essential for my medicine cabinet.
I recommend it and I will always buy this one.
I rate it 5 stars.
Summary: Heals the skin.
