~ Sudocrem Antiseptic Healing Cream ~
Being a mum you will be guaranteed to find a pot or two of this cream in my house somewhere. I have one in the bathroom cabinet and another with all the baby changing stuff, along with a tube of Bepanthen. I tend to switch between the two depending on how my little one is and whether he is teething or not as when he is I find the Bepanthen clears up any rashes quicker and use the Sudocrem on a night nappy change only as I feel it offers a brilliant protection barrier against the nastiness of wee's and poo's.
But the last time I used Sudocrem was last night after very surprisingly my eldest son came back from a weekend away with sunburn ... I was gobsmacked!
I know it's July but the weather hasn't been the best, in fact it's been absolutely awful with the non-stop rain and cloudiness, however the weekend my son goes down to my parent caravan for the weekend the weather was glorious there, note I said there, it wasn't here, it rained all day yesterday!
My son has ginger hair, blue eyes and pale skin so therefore burns easily. I always plaster him in sun cream and my mum usually does the same but she didn't expect it to be as nice as it was and after applying sun cream in the morning, by the time he had finished swimming, playing on the beach with his friends, in and out of the sea, he eventually ventured back to the caravan a very fetching shade of lobster!
My mum had no after sun there in the caravan and nor did I have any at home but what I did have was my little pot of wonder cream that is Sudocrem.
My son's arms and face were quite red and he said that they felt quite sore so I slathered on a generous helping of Sudocrem and he was quite happy to let this take away the burning feeling and cool him down.
This morning his arms were still slightly red but nothing like last night so I was very pleased with the result of Sudocrem and what it had done for him, he was able to get a decent nights sleep so he was pleased.
I also use it myself when I shave 'down there' and find that it eases any itchiness immediately and stops any rashes, on occasion my hubby has also used it if he can't be bothered to find his shaving balm *bathroom cabinet, middle shelf, as always!* to stop any razor burn and he finds that it works very effectively for him too.
Any other time it is used at nappy changes, sometimes through the day I may forget but I always use it at night for a barrier cream as I mentioned above but I do also find it very effective if my son seems to be suffering from a slight nappy rash. I can expect the rash to be cleared within a day, making this a superb cream.
I have also in the past on numerous occasions used it as a 'magic' cream if any of my children have fallen and have a slight graze, I find that the 'magic cream' soon stops any tears.
And as my eight year old old sometimes suffers with his eczema on his hands I find that a little smear of this cream with also stop his itchiness.
The cream is quite noticeable on a shelf with it being in a tub rather than a tube. The tubs are grey in colour with a simplistic white, red and black label. They have also introduced Sudocrem in a tube yet I have never bought nor tried this one so cannot pass comment on if it is the same or not.
I am sure the scent is lavender based although to me it just smells of Sudocrem, I wouldn't know how to describe it other than that!
I have taken prices from the Tesco website - www.tesco.com although it is very widely available from most stores.
60g - £2.37
250g - £3.50
400g - £5.24
It is something I will continue to buy as long as they keep making it, as does my mother and grandmother.
Thanks for reading :o) x
