Sudocrem Care & Protect Review

When you have a baby you find yourself discussing things that you wouldn't have dreamt of discussing before. Bums are the perfect example of this. All of a sudden this area of the human body becomes a very important part of your life - colour of the bum, smoothness of the bum, which products to put on the bum and even what comes out of the bum is openly discussed with anyone who will listen!

As we all know, a baby's skin is delicate so what we put on it has to be delicate too. This is especially important for baby's bum because of all the nasties it encounters. 

When I was asked to try out Sudocrem Care & Protect on E's delicate little bum I thought 'why not, I know the brand well and it'll give me another chance to talk about bums'!

Sudocrem Care & Protect

Ever since having T, 12 years ago, I have used the standard Sudocrem Antiseptic Healing Cream. It always did the job I wanted it to (keeping those cute bums free from soreness) and that's why when I had E last year I stuck to the product I knew would work. The only problem with this product, in my opinion, is how thick and tacky it is - you can't really rub it in properly and little one is left with a big white patch on her skin. 

Sudocrem Care & Protect is different because it has a much smoother consistency and it rubs in beautifully. I also love the fact you can open the tube one-handed because more often than not I only have one hand available! 

On the first use I did squeeze a bit too hard and loads of cream came squirting out - I think I underestimated just how runny it would be. You can see the difference in consistency in the images below.


Sudocrem Care & Protect is a barrier ointment that has been specifically designed to help prevent nappy rash and can be used at every nappy change. It forms a protective barrier that seals in the skin's natural moisture and guards against infection. It also contains ingredients such as vitamin E and Pro Vitamin B5 to condition baby's delicate skin.

Overall it was a pleasure to use Care & Protect, I would say it works equally as well as the Antiseptic Healing Cream but soaks into the skin better and the fragrance is less medical (I put some on my hands because I liked the smell so much)!

Have you tried Sudocrem Care & Protect yet? What did you think?

I received this product for review purposes. I am always honest in my reviews and all opinions are my own or that of my family.
