I was sent a tube of Sudocrem’s Care & Protect to try on the boy a little while ago, which was rather timely as we were going through a few nasty bouts of nappy rash. As a fan of Sudocream for both me and him, I was more than happy to give their new product a go.
Now, this is what they said
Sudocrem Care & Protect offers triple protection against the causes of nappy rash by:
- Creating a protective barrier that seals in the skin’s natural moisture and protects even the most delicate skin against external irritants.
- Conditioning the skin with Vitamin E and Pro Vitamin B5, which helps to protect the skin and keep it soft, healthy and moisturised. Pro Vitamin B5 has been shown to act as an anti-inflammatory on skin, and acts both as a moisturiser and an aid to stimulate the skin’s natural healing processes.
- Guarding against infection- As well as sealing in the good stuff, Sudocrem Care & Protect acts as a barrier to protect delicate skin from the bad stuff, like the chemicals in urine and poo, and from chafing and rubbing.
This is what I thought
The tube fit snuggly in the hand, however as I like to lather cream on his bot, it wouldn’t last long so I’d need a much bigger tube. It has a hinged lid which is really useful as he’s always kicking lids on the floor when I’m changing him. The cream itself does seem quite runny to be able to tackle the dreaded nappy rash, but it feels silky smooth and I imagine he thought the same. I used it for about a week and his bum felt really smooth, however he did unfortunately develop nappy rash in this time which was only sorted with a thick layer of usual Sudocrem. That said, he was going through a stage where he was constantly getting nappy rash and I’m not sure anything would have stopped it.
I’m still using it as a barrier as it feels great, but switch to the hard stuff (standard Sudocrem) when he shows signs of a rash. So does it completely protect from nappy rash? No. Would I buy it again? Yes, his bum does feel silky soft when I’ve used it.
Disclosure: I was sent the tube of Care & Protect from Sudocrem’s PR agency to review. No payment was received.
