and she sang; sudo-sudocremm

26 May 2011


Some time ago now I remember reading somewhere online about how sudocrem is one of the most effective moisturising and cleansing masks. I have always had the belief that anything made for babies has to be good for adults too because more often than not they are designed to include less harmful crap (for want of a better word). When I was offered  a sample of their new sudocrem tube I was more than happy to accept because it reminded me that I still hadn't tried the wonders of Sudocrem out. Yes I more often that not use babywipes to remove most of my makeup and johnsons shampoo for my brushes but hadn't stretched from that. Don't worry I'm not going to start trying to convince you of the 'wonders' of a baby food diet! I'm not crazy :)

I was sent a 30g tube of sudocrem which is great because you're not constantly dipping fingers into a pot which can spread germs and generally shorten the life of your moisturiser.

Unlike most thick moisturisers I have tried I never ever wake up with an oily face after using Sudocrem overnight and because of the antibacterial properties it's great for calming and reducing swelling of spots. So this is what I do, and honestly if you get the chance I would recommend trying this even just the once can make such a lovely difference.

remove makeup. I use with baby wipes or boots own cucumber wipes
 cleanse / tone with usual products. I use Liz Earle cleanse & polish or clean and clear cleanser & body shop tea tree toner
 take a pea sized amount of sudocrem for each area of your face (cheek, cheek, nose and chin, forehead and 2 for your neck if you like)
 rub the sudocrem thoroughly into your face making motions that move out towards your ears
 remember sudocrem has a thicker consistency than normal moisturisers so it will take a little longer to sink in. do not worry about looking like a ghost! this is supposed to happen
 now go to bed

It's not often that I do a post like this with my skincare tips etc so i'd love to know what you thought and if you'd be interested in seeing more posts like this :)

  6. I used to use my boyfriend's Sudocrem (he uses it for his eczema) every now and then because I love how my skin feels the morning after. It really does work wonders, doesn't it? Unfortunately my skin is naturally quite oily so I couldn't use it that often because I could really feel the weight of it on my skin.
    Love these types of posts!
