Sudocrem as a beauty product may not be your first thought about this household staple, but they have just released a skin care cream (£2.11) that might just change your mind.
Sudocrem has long been used for its healing properties. When I was a youth I used to use the antiseptic cream on my spots and I’m pretty sure I’m not alone there. Now they have released their Skin Care Cream specifically for spot and acne prone skin. I’m so excited about this product, because it is so rare to find an over the counter blemish clearing product that actually works. Let alone for such a good price.
I applied it at night after washing my face, rubbing it into my skin (it can be left on as a face mask, which is what Towie star Lauren Pope does). I wasn’t expecting to see results for a few days but the next morning I could definitely notice a difference. I have oily, spot prone skin and even when my skin is clear, I can always feel bumps under the surface waiting to become spots. After using this those bumps went down, and after just two uses they were almost completely gone. My redness was also reduced. In general, my skin was much calmer.
It is very thick in consistency so a little goes a long way. Especially if you are rubbing it into the skin. Or you can use a bit more and leave it to soak into the skin over night. (see picture above)
I definitely recommend this product, even if you don’t have spot prone skin. Some people use it just for a glow. Lara Stone says she uses it on planes to refresh her skin before landing. And at £2, its a no brainer really.
