I was excited to read on various websites what a miracle (and budget) cure this was for blemishes - it seems to be approaching cult status.
Sorry to say though it did absolutely nothing for me. Not a thing. Nada. Didn't make them worse but didn't reduce or improve them at all either.
I'm very jealous of all the people on here who've found this works for them. As for me - I'll be putting it at the back of a drawer for when I've got a baby to use it on!

I get really random allergic reactions sometimes, out of the blue, usually on my legs and usually at night. I used E45 cream for a long time but it did NOTHING, then I decided to use this stuff and it INSTANTLY calms it down, itching stops and it calms down the redness from the scratching. I'm now gonna try it on redness at night because i'm constantly flushed

I am so disappointed that this didn't work for me! I ordered this off of ebay from the UK. Even with international shipping I only paid about $6. Anyway, I slathered some all over my face on a bunch of small spots and it made me break out NASTY STYLE! And I'm not talking about little pimples, I mean a bunch of under-the-skin painful ones. I even got a huge pimple on the top of my cheek, a place where I have NEVER gotten a pimple in my entire life. I am so seriously bummed that this cream not only did not work for me, but made me break out horribly. I recommend that if you are trying it out for the first time, use on a couple of small spots first in case your skin reacts badly to it like mine. Unlike other reviewers though, I found the smell to be very pleasant and the texture was very nice.

I decided to give this a go after Lollipop26 on her blog said how this really helped her acne on her chin. I suffer with the same problem (hormonal) so went to my drugstore to get some!
Oh my god, this has worked better than expensive spot treatments i have used in the past. The consistency is just alike a cream, it almost feels greasy to the touch. I slather this all over where I have breakouts (so pretty much my entire chin is covered!) and I leave this stuff on for as long as it takes. I can leave it on for 10 mins, half an hour....it doesn't irritate my sensitive skin at all! And by the next day, my spots have drastically reduced in size and colour, by the 2nd day they would have dried up and gone!
This stuff is truly amazing, its a huge tub, its gentle, doesn't sting, costs under £4, and WORKS.
I got my sister to use this, and she got the exact same results! Can't recommend enough :-)

Like many reviewers, if I hadn't stumbled upon this product in Productville, I never would have even thought to purchase this, not even for my 2 year old, who's prone to diaper rash.
This thick white diaper rash cream comes in a non-descript grey plastic container, and is available in two sizes. I decided to pick up the smaller container, as it may go rancid before I'm even halfway through it. Thanks to reviews that claim of its magic powers as a spot treatment and redness reducer, I gave it a shot when I suddenly started seeing small red pimples popping up on my upper chest.
With one overnight treatment, all those irritating little bumps were gone! It was like magic. I tried it out next on a couple of facial pimples that were just starting to surface, and it worked just as well for those, too. For about $3.99CAD, I'm quite pleased with the efficacy of such an underrated, relatively unknown item. It's now one of my favorite skincare secrets!

It really works :) At first i hated the strong scent it gave me a bit of headache but now i got over it! Yay!! I used to get loads of spots, after using this, i havent got a single spot and i had more than 10 packs of crisps!!! *touch wood* Can't live without it. For this result, i would happily pay 10 times of its price to get it if im out of UK!

Me: Red, red, RED all over and sensitive everywhere but my nose and chin.
The product: Where to begin? This little jar has been delighting and mystifying people for a long, long time. Retailing for about $6 per 4 oz, you can find this many places if you live in Canada or the UK...and nowhere but the internet if you live in the United States, but that hasn't and won't stop people from searching high and low for it. I ordered it from an Ebayer, and I've heard good things about ordering it from Well.ca or Westons.com. One 4 oz jar should last you a long time, because you shouldn't be using that much of it.
This is a thick, THICK cream. I hate to use jars, but there's no way this could ever be dispensed from a pump. A little goes a long way towards good results and a lot goes a long way towards making you as white as a ghost. The effectiveness of the active ingredients in Sudocrem is not confusing or surprising. Zinc oxide is a well-known skin-soother and healer, which is why it's in many diaper rash creams and sensitive skin sunscreens. There are a couple mild antiseptic ingredients in Sudocrem, too. What does confuse people is why the scarier ingredients aren't more pore-clogging, like the beeswax and the lanolin. It does break some people out, but most people who use it (me included, and while I'm not acne-prone on my own, I will break out from the wrong product) do not report contact acne...so don't allow the slightly scary ingredient list to turn you off from the start.
The closest US equivalent of this product (which I have not tried), for those who don't want to order online, is probably Boudreaux's Butt Paste (no, seriously.) It has nearly the same amount of zinc oxide as Sudocrem, and it also contains Peruvian Balsam, which is equivalent to the benzyl cinnamate antiseptic in Sudocrem. It also has less ingredients in general, which can only be a good thing for those of us who love short ingredient lists. Other diaper rash creams may be just as effective as well depending on the formulation.
My experience: WOW. WOW. WOW. WOW. Over the past week, this has gone a long way towards turning me into the PPP I've always been underneath the redness! It hasn't and probably won't drain ALL the flushing out of my face, but it has almost totally cured my nose of the redness and has gotten the red color of my cheeks to a rosy hue - which is more than any other single product has done so far. Although this is yet another step to a regimen I try to keep simple, because I don't use it as a substitute for a moisturizer at night, I don't plan on giving this up...ever!
I don't spot treat with Sudocrem, like some people. I apply a THIN layer at night and cleanse it off in the morning. This feels like a very crappy sunscreen on the face - it is greasy, shiny and sticky. If you're going to apply over your whole face it's very important to treat this like a mask, NOT a night cream. No matter how thick this feels in the jar and on your face, this is not a moisturizing product and can dry you out. If you're at all prone to dryness you should apply a moisturizer before the Sudocrem. It's also crucial you apply only enough to make your face shiny and not so much that you turn yourself paper-white. It will still work and there is less chance of clogging out your pores. In the morning, you will probably have to cleanse, because as a barrier paste it is designed to resist rubbing off on contact of anything and will still be there. Also, as an occlusive paste, anything you apply underneath is likely to work better, which can be a good or bad thing depending on how resistant your skin is.

bit of a strange review for me as i usually only review things like lipgloss lol but just have to say this stuff is AMAZING, its been about for years my nans nan use to use it everyone in my family uses it for their babies bottoms! i mainly use it after shaving my 'bikini' area,i apply it and it completely stops me getting any shaving rash or ingrown hairs (before using Sudocrem i use to suffer badly with shaving rash!) if i do get an ingrown hair on my leg or something it helps to heal it soo quickly and takes away any redness. my brother uses it on his spots and it dries them up coz its antiseptic, my boyfriend uses it for his eczema.. so many uses and its cheap! love it :)

I put off writing this review for quite some time because I wasn't really sure that I would be able to convey just how awesome Sudocrem is without using saucy language and far too many exclamation marks!!!
But I'll give it a try...
Had I known that an easily accessable, and exceptionally inexpensive DIAPER RASH CREAM was going to be the ultimate spot treatment for my monthly cystic acne, I could have saved all of that wasted cash spent on countless "miracle cures" bought during my late teens and early twenties years and bought a new house or a fancy car.
Alas, I did buy all of those silly big promise/small results products, and I remain an apartment renting pedestrian.
SUDOCREM makes no promises of miracles, infact it has never even been advertised. If I wasn't for Makeupalley I never would have stumbled accross the various uses for this cream beyond the application to babies bums... really I should have known the magical powers of diaper rash cream given that babies bums are as smooth as... well you know....
I dab this on my clean face wherever I am a little red/break out at night and in the morning all of those imperfections are seriously reduced and/or gone!!!! AMAZING!!!
I highly recomend this to anyone with a minor breakout, but don't forget that it is also a great treatment for Excema and other skin rashes and itches... I sware it even helps heal small cuts and bug bites!!
Age: 30-35 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Blond Eyes: Green
Yes, yes, yes! This is a really good treatment for spots! I use it every second night with another product - zinc cream with salicid acid and this mix works wonders. Dirt cheap, easily available and effective! Yay...

I must first thank all the posters below me because had I not read them I would not have been convinced to buy it. Now that I have used it, I am very impressed. I have hormonal acne that causes deep cystic flares monthly around my chin and jaw. Nothing has worked in the past. Sudocrem worked overnight I kid you not. When I washed my face in the morning my pimples still continued to decrease in size throughout the day. I have been using this for over week (including the week I started menstruating) and I have not a single pimple on my face today. Thank you MUA!!!
Age: 25-29 Skin: Very Oily, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Blue
Brilliant product ! Other spot treatments ive tried do dry out the spot but leave me with a sore cracked area that stays red as they are too harsh.
This dries the spot out and heals all in one but is not drying at all, as other reviewers have said I use at night it either stops emerging spots in their tracks or gets rid of and heals existing spots usually within two nights at the most.
Wouldnt bother trying anything else now a cheap product that actually works and has other uses too !

Sudocrem is primarily a product for treating diaper (nappy) rash. It is a topical, protective, barrier product that helps to soothe, heal and protect skin from further irritation. Sudocrem can also be used for other skin conditions that require a protective antiseptic cream. Due to some of the ingredients it also provides additional healing, antibacterial and antifungal properties. Sudocrem has a base which forms a protective barrier to retain moisture, great for moist healing. The barrier also helps to stop any anything coming into contact with the affected skin. In addition, Sudocrem can help to soothe sore, inflamed skin while leaving the skin feeling soft.
However, this product does contain several comedogenic ingredients; but not everyone experiences pore clogging or acne accentuation from comedogenic ingredients. As always, it is "your results may vary" or YRMV. Please check the ingredients list, provided below. I will not repurchase since the lanolin and mineral oil in this give me problems, and I find that other products work better for me in treating acne and irritation. However, there are many glowing reviews of this product here on MUA as well as elsewhere on the internet. It works well for many, so I give it 3 lippies.
Sudocrem is distributed by On The Go Healthcare, Inc., and this product is typically sold in Canada and the United Kingdom. It comes in 4 different sizes - 60g, 125g, 250g and 400g. The 250g size (just under 9oz) which normally costs around $20 CAD or around $16 USD. Sudocrem comes in a grey plastic tub. The lid of the 250g size is push-on and does not travel well because it can pop off easily. The tub is covered with a white adhesive label which includes the Sudocrem lettering in white on a red background along the top edge. There is a link to an image at the end of this review. Sudocrem is a very thick white cream with a lavender scent.
The website also states:
Sudocrem contains a number of ingredients and properties, such as:
· hypoallergenic lanolin, to help provide emollient properties
· zinc oxide is an astringent which reduces the loss of tissue fluid
· benzyl benzoate and benzyl cinnamate are amongst the ingredients of Peru Balsam, recognised for its healing properties
· benzyl alcohol is a weak local anaesthetic which acts to ease localised pain and irritation. It also acts as a disinfectant/antibacterial agent and is responsible for protection against common bacterial contaminants.
Apply a thin layer to the affected area as required. Sudocrem is meant to leave a protective barrier so it wont be completely absorbed into the skin. You may wish to apply this only at night as the Zinc Oxide it contains can leave white marks on your clothing. As with most medicines, there are warnings on the pot. It recommends you to keep out of eyes and the mucous membranes. Do not use if sensitive to any of the ingredients.
15.25% Zinc Oxide
0.39% Benzyl alcohol
1.01% Benzyl Benzoate
0.15% Benzyl Cinnamate
Liquid Paraffin (Mineral Oil)
Sudocrem can be used for:
· diaper rash (nappy rash)
· minor cuts and grazes and other minor surface wounds
· bed sores
· minor burns (I would never recommend a barrier product for burns, however)
· sunburn (again, I would not recommend it for this)
· Acne (if not sensitive to the comedogenic ingredients)
· Eczema (I recommend consulting your dermatologist first)
· Chilblains (Pernio)

I've had a tub of this lurking in my bathroom cupboard for ages . Anyway I happened to catch a review on here and decided to give it a try as I am struggling wth adult acne not helped by a reaction to Liz Earle's C&P. I also have mild rosacea.
anyway I was a little sceptical but decided to give it a try on a fresh crop of zits and well..pretty good!
Redness reduced, most of zits (except one stubborn one) gone or reduced. and that was after 2 night applications.
Definitely worth a try at the price it and you get tons. I only put a dab on and wiped off excess with a tissue as its quite thick. It didn't make my oily skin worse either.
Thank you to whoever started reviewing (and trying) this!
does contain lanolin though for those who are senstive to it.

Unfortunately, despite the fact that I have never had an allergic reaction to anything in my life, I bought a moisturiser from the Boots Botanics range which burnt my face! After a day or two of use it had left my face red raw and peeling, and the usually fine texture was covered in bumps. It was initially my dad who suggested I put Sudo on the burns so I did. It cleared up the burns almost entirely overnight which I had kind of expected before after using it on burns on my fingers etc. However, what I had not anticipated was the effect it would have on the couple of spots I had, a little redness that had flared up around my nose and overall skin texture- AMAZING! And so cheap! Definitely HG material!

The absolute best!!!!!! my HG treatment that got rid of my acne overnight. I applied it in the general areas that were broken out and went to bed. The next morning I was shocked. It was all gone. I am so glad to have found sudocrem at a time when my faced was at its absolute worst. It takes down the size, height and redness of a pimple in no time without dryness. It's also absolutely amazing on those painful looking pimples, the ones lurking underground and will literally stop them from advancing anymore. And it's multi-use! I ordered it from well.ca a canadian site and got a 125 g. tub of it for around 8 bucks. The absolute best purchase I've ever made!! Buy it, you wont regret it.

I don't know....I'm kind of on the fence with this one. After reading all the great reviews, I ordered it off ebay (i'm in the US) and have been using it occasionally for blemishes and honestly don't see the miracle everyone else is talking about. I even think it may have caused some flare ups. Sometimes I feel though my skin is just super weird and doesn't respond like the norm. It did work great on the razor bumps in my bikini area though...but I have to keep putting it on or they reappear.

The best antiseptic cream around. I've tried everything from witch hazel, tea tree oil, to other antiseptics like Savlon, TCP etc. and nothing works quite as well as Sudocrem.
I put a thick layer on my spots overnight, and the next morning they have pretty much disappeared. I know people who have used this as a night cream, which is a bt much for me given the thickness and strong smell, but it's cheap, safe to use and really does work.

In Australia this is marketed as baby nappy/diaper rash ointment. I have used it on all 3 of my children and it works a charm. The texture is creamy and the consistency is really thick which is why I like it as it adheres to the skin well.
I am so surprised to hear that people are using this on their face to heal pimples etc as I would have thought this cream would actually CREATE pimples. Interesting......

This is an Amazing creme. I had like cystic pimples that would not go away, and i kept getting new ones every day. Now they are allmost gone thanks to this product. It does take some days for exsisting pimples to go away, but I use this every day when im at home and every night and i can say that i have NOT gotten any new ones. It is a miracle creme. Im so happy, i have tried everything out there. and i will never try anything else. This is now my HG for sure :)
I guess i got imune to it somehow, my pimples came back and it stopped working. im now using decleor ylang ylang nightbalm (for 2 mounts) and its a 1000 times better.
