I was recently asked to try out sudocrem’s care & protect cream and as someone who has always used Sudocrem at nappy changes; I jumped at the chance to test a new product out. Sudocrem is one of the leading brands of baby care products and that’s one of the reasons I have always used their nappy cream. However I had yet to try the newer Care & Protect range as we have a massive tub of the original left and as Mia is getting a bit older, she rarely has nappy rashes anymore.
The Care & Protect range boasts a triple care system; it conditions skin, forms a protective barrier, and it guards against infection. The thing I really like is that it can be used at every nappy change, something we have always done for Mia but found that previous products designed specifically for nappy rashes can be of quite a thick consistency and so not particularly suitable for everyday use. As Mia got older, we found the products were more difficult to apply and actually get on her bottom, instead of all over the mat and her clothes!
I tested the Sudocrem Care & Protect range for over a week, it is a lovely soft cream that spreads easily and blends quickly. It’s so easy to apply which is very important when you have a wriggly toddler who isn’t keen on lying on a mat for more than 2 minutes! Normally, there’s cream everywhere but on her bottom! I could tell Mia preferred the new cream as firstly, she actually let me apply it and secondly, she asked for it every time I changed her pull-ups, which is very rare! Just a small amount is required cover a little bottom. Mia has quite sensitive skin on her bottom and ends up with heat rashes when she has worn her nappy/pull-up for a while, in the week we used the Care & Protect range, the rashes have definitely looked less red and covered a smaller area than without using the cream so its great as a protective barrier and a skin conditioner.
On initial opening of the tube, the smell is not as overpowering as I have found the Sudocrem original products to be, the cream smells really nice and once Mia’s pull-up was on, I couldn’t smell it at all, which was nice. The tube itself is made of soft plastic with rounded corners so there’s no chance of any sharp edges to catch little fingers. The tube also has practical one –handed opening which is great when you have a little wriggler! The tube is small enough to pop in the changing bag or even in your handbag. We have used the Care & Protect cream for over a week now and I would say there is plenty left for the next 2 weeks, which means that at an average price of £4 its great value!
The only thing I would say is that if you are a stickler for reading instructions, I personally found the light purple text a bit hard to read in certain lights and so I would prefer a slightly darker text, that’s just my preference though!
All in all, I really liked the Sudocrem Care & Protect cream. I can use it at every nappy change; it’s lovely and soft, easy to apply and protects sensitive skin. I didn’t know that the Care & Protect range included a sun cream mousse so I will definitely be trying that next! You can find more information including where to buy the range at Sudocrem
