Usually, I am a sudocreme fan but after a recent trip to Asda, I spotted this pot for just £1!! I use Little Angels nappies and love them so I figured this would also be a try!
So the packaging is quite plain. A simple white pot with a purple and white label. The labelling tells me this a product made by Little Angels (Asdas FANTASTIC own brand for baby products) that the tub contains 200ml of product, is a protective barrier cream, anti bacterial and hypoallergenic. There is also a gold star which tells me this has been awarded a gold retailer of the year award by Mother and Baby magazine. Not bad for an own brand that you could buy with your loose change. It is also not tested on animals and will last 12 months after opening. The directions state to apply the cream at every nappy change onto cleansed, dry skin. And there is also a list of ingredients, the main ones being aqua, zinc oxide and petrolatum. Pretty standard for any nappy cream.
To open, you need to pull away the plastic tab underneath the lid and then the lid just pulls up by gently lifting the leftover tab of plastic. The cream is fragrance free so not much to report on that , just a gentle smell, similar to aqueous cream. It is white in colour and nice and thick in consistency. I find I do not need to use much to cover the areas I need to and I would estimate this tub will last me a good few months. Great value!!
Since using this cream, my son has had lovely supple skin with no redness or irritation. He doesn't suffer from nappy rash but will sometimes get slightly red and this cream clears it up straight away. I do not use at ever nappy change as stated in the directions but instead I find morning and night is sufficient to my needs, though if there was an active nappy rash, I would use at every nappy change.
The only thing I don't like, and this is complete personal preference, is that you have to scoop the cream out with your finger and if you are like me with acrylic nails it can be a bit messy, I much prefer a squeezy tube but as most nappy creams come packaged this way, this is an issue I would have with any of them.
Overall, a fantastic product, great value for money and just as good as leading brands! Recommended!!
Little Angels is Asda own brand baby range and I have always found there products as good as any and their Nappy Cream is just as good as the leading brand in my opinion. For a 200g tub it will cost £2.35 which works out at 67.5p per 100g. This is compared to the leading brand, Sudocrem, which costs £1.31 per 100g for a similar sized tub. I have found that this is the best way of comparing like for like when gaging value for money.
The nappy cream comes in a pot which has a resalable lid, which granted is what you would expect. The cream is designed to soothe irritated skin and this is exactly what it seems to do. My wife and I use this cream on a regular basis whenever our child's bum is a bit red or sore looking and the cream always clears up the nappy rash after a couple of applications.
The cream is also designed to act as a protective barrier to stop the causes of nappy rash so you can also use the cream as a preventive measure if you wish. I personally prefer to give our little one a little time without a nappy on around bath time instead of using the cream as a preventative measure.
I haven't found this cream any more or less effective that a more expensive bran in Sudocrem and would recommend this to any parent.
I normally use a well known brand of nappy cream for my grandson but while shopping in Asda recently I decided to buy and try this cream as a friend told me that she had bought it for her grandchild and said it was a nice cream for the price.
It comes in a round white plastic tub, with a pull off lid, the cream inside is a thick, white cream and the texture of it is very soft, it is a light cream and not too heavy on the skin and it can easily be gently rubbed into the skin and soothe any irritations.
The size of the tub is quite large at 200g and for £1.47 it is a good price, for a cheaper brand, it is a breathable barrier cream that protects the skin and the anti bacterial cream helps fight the causes of nappy rash and the it is dermatology tested to make sure it is perfect for a baby's delicate skin and so to soothe and heal any rashes that may appear as it is normal for a baby to have nappy rash at times but it can make the child feel very sore and irritated at times if the rash is not treated.
My grandson rarely has nappy rash as the nappies he wears are suited to his skin and keep him nice and dry but a nappy cream still has to be used to give a protection and this one suits his skin and it did not irritate his skin at all, it did soothe a rash he had but it took that little bit longer to remove than a higher brand I use but it did soothe and suit him well.
I found recently when I was changing him that a nappy rash he had did not soothe quite as quickly with this one and it took a couple more days than with the branded one, but it did not irritate his skin any further, it just took that little longer to soothe.
This one is made with Zinc and Castor Oil, which makes a very nice soft cream and only a little is needed to rub gently directly into the skin and used with every nappy change it gives a nice protection for the skin, and my grandsons rash soon disappeared after a couple of applications of this cream and so he was then more comfortable.
I like the texture with this one as it is so soft on the skin and very easy to apply and a little goes a long way, and the tub can easily fit into a nappy bag or a changing table, or cupboard or drawer.
I recommend this one for anyone to give it a try and for anyone who is on a lower budget and to save some money.
I give this 5 stars.
Thank you for reading my review.
As a mam im sure youve seen the price of sudacrem! its so expensive for the size tub so since Id been using other Little angel products I thought id give it a go.
It is an excellent price at £1.32 for a 200g tub and when looking at the cream its seems a good cream nice and thick. It checks all the boxes for being for sensitive skin its not got anything nasty in it all seems good. The first night I used it on my sons bum it was very thick to apply, too thick really as I felt I was using alot of the cream.
I used the nappy cream for about a week before I gave up on it, its far to thick, seems impossible to spread thinly and its hard to get off your hands when finished. So I went back to sudacrem, I must say though I still buy this nappy cream as it made an excellent foot cream I had a bit of cracked heel going on and I used this cream on my feet at night with socks and it very quickly sorted my heels out. For the price you cant really find a better foot moisturisor.
Asda Little Angels Nappy Cream
My son rarely suffers with any form of nappy rash or sore bits, only after using poor quality products or if he has had a bout of diarrhoea.
Having parents who live in France for most of the year, makes a holiday or quick trip over there cheap and easy but also means two of everything, so even though I barely use nappy cream I have a tub of this at mum and dads place, just in case!!!
The nappy cream is packaged in a white tub and is a thick white cream with the same consistency as Sudacrem. Applying this cream is easy, just dip a couple of fingers in to the mix and smooth onto the babys' bottom and into the crease at the top of the legs. The whiteness does fade a little but the cream does not fully absorb into the skin, creating a barrier from the moisture that can trigger nappy rash.
While we were in France last month Jake did experience a little bit of an upset tummy and because he was swimming and paddling in the sea every day I did take to applying the nappy cream quite regularly. A little redness did begin to develop probably from all the chlorine in the swimming pool or salt in the sea combined with his icky tummy. The nappy cream nipped it in the bud quickly and helped soothe the redness well.
Overall I was quite pleased with the results of this cream, it works quickly and effectively and is significantly cheaper than Sudacrem at 78p for a 250ml tub versus £3.35 for the same size of Sudacrem.
I am aware that if your child has significantly bad nappy rash that your GP may prescribe Sudacrem or something similar, so if you get through a lot it may be worth asking!
