And let's face it, the big grey tub that lurks in our medical cabinet just doesn't belong in our handbags - that is, until now.
Sudocrem have launched a rather stylish, handbag friendly tube of Sudocrem Skin Care Cream, which we wouldn't feel at all ashamed of leaving on our dressing tables.
Especially so as flawless celebs such as Cheryl Tweedy, Kimberly Walsh and Martine McCutcheon all swear by its spot busting properties, Amanda Holden says it's her 'beauty bargain for killing spots' and it's ours too!
This multi tasking tube of skin soothing goodness is our go-to for dry knees and elbows, grazes, cuts, pimples and sunburn - it's a yummy mummy essential.
Sudocrem Skin Care Cream - £1.99
Available from pharmacies and major retailers nationwide.
