Let's Sav it! Soothe me with Savlon antiseptic creme Review with images

AdvantagesSoothing. Easy to apply. Kids seem to trust it.

DisadvantagesStrong antiseptic smell. Can be dangerous in the hands of children or those with mental disabilities

"Savlon Antiseptic Cream Using Savlon Antiseptic Cream Ever since I was a little lad, going back over thirty years, one of the constant sources of comfort for me when I have cut or grazed myself, has been Savlon antiseptic cream. Ok it was in a different form at the time but by the time Novartis took over the product and its packaging it was already planted in my head with a nostalgic devotion of sorts. ..." Read review

A Regular in our First Aid Box

Advantagespromotes healing, prevents infection

Disadvantagesnone

"Savlon Antiseptic Cream has been a vital component in our first aid box for many a year. And prior to that, I always remember there being a tube in my mum's medicine cabinet. It's just one of those things that I have to have in there, alongside the plasters and TCP. It's a brand that I trust, having been bought up with it in this way, and, whereas I tend to try out the less expensive supermarket own brands for most things, I am always happy to pay ..."

~ ~ A dog? ....... Seriously? ~ ~ Review with images

AdvantagesPrevents infections, Can be used for a lot of different problems

DisadvantagesStops infections but makes you smell like an infection in the process!

"...why I decided to buy Savlon out of all of the other brands of antiseptic creams. My dad would always say that it is important to use Savlon for cuts so I think that's why I set out in my mind to buy Savlon, not any of the other brands. It costs between £3 and £4 depending on where it's bought. It can be bought from many places, especially chemists but it can also be found in some of the leading supermarkets as well as places such as Superdrug and ..." Read review

Another household antiseptic cream :)

Advantagesworks well and is multi purpose

Disadvantagesnone for us, but remember to only use it for minor ailments

"...products we own is this Savlon antiseptic cream. Savlon can be bought in a number of quantities; 15g, 30g, 60g and 100g. I was fortunate to actually pick up a decent 60g tube in my local poundstore so looking to stock up I bought 2! The cream comes packaged in a blue cardboard box so it it's always easy to spot on the shelf in stores. The tube looks like a usual little tube of cream with a white screw on cap so it can be reused time and time again. ..." Read review

Soothing for the skin.

AdvantagesHeals irritations.

DisadvantagesNone.

"We all break out in pimples and blemishes at sometime or other and I am no different, even though I always take very good care of my skin and eat healthily most of the time, I often scratch my skin with my nails as they are quite long and if they are not filed or need trimming I often find myself with scratch marks on my body as I sometimes tend to scratch myself during my sleep. I have to use an antiseptic cream to heal them as they can be so annoying, ..." Read review

Savlon the saviour

AdvantagesDoesn't sting

DisadvantagesNot too effective on spots

"...used to at home and Savlon (plus Germolene) became a regular in my own bathroom cabinet. So what is it? This is deemed "..the nation's favourite blue tube.." according to their official website (yes they do have one) though I can't say I've ever got so excited about it to even refer to it as anything as heroic as that. Savlon is an antiseptic cream that is suitable for the usual generic symptoms pertaining to these types of products including: *Cuts *Grazes *Insect ..." Read review

Multi tasking product!

AdvantagesWorks well, easily absorbed and doesn't stink

DisadvantagesDries on skin a little tight (on the face)

"...that I'm told it is Savlon Antiseptic Cream all in white writing. Other information on the box tells me what the product can be used for, directions for use are given, warnings and ingredients are listed, the size of the tube is stated (in this case it's a 30g tube) and contact details for Novartis Consumer Health are listed (the manufacturer of the product). The tube is plastic and of the same colour-scheme as the box and much of the same information ..." Read review

Savlon Saviour

AdvantagesGentle and effective, inexpensive

DisadvantagesNone for me

"I have been using Savlon since I was little, or rather my parents used it on me back then. I was sure that the mere smell of the cream was enough to make a make a grazed knee feel better. I still trust it as a good soothing and antiseptic cream so I was delighted to see that the 30g tubes were now available in my local Poundworld. This was a larger size than previously sold there - and considering I had just bought the same size pack for my mum for ..." Read review

"Clumsy" Cream..!

AdvantagesIt's good value... and it works!

DisadvantagesNone for me!

"...occasion was a tube of Savlon Antiseptic Cream. The cream is available in a few different sized tubes, but the one I purchased was 30g in size and this tube cost me around the £1 mark. I decided to pop it into my luggage just before I left for my recent trip abroad and I have to say that this proved to be a good decision! I used the cream on umpteen separate occasions whilst I was away and have therefore come to the conclusion that I will never ..." Read review

The famous blue tube

Advantagesreliable

Disadvantagesnone

"Savlon rave that they are the nations favourite antiseptic cream and indeed the brand is very popular. When something is reliable and good quality people will keep buying it, after all we will never stop having all those trips, slips and falls, so we will always need something to rub on our bumps and grazes. I guess when you are brought up with a brand and your parents trust it, it rubs off on you. I can always remember the famous blue tube in my ..." Read review

An essential in my first aid box

AdvantagesEasily absorbed, non greasy, keeps wounds clean

DisadvantagesMore expensive than other brands

"...with some antiseptic cream, and Savlon is my first choice for such cream. Savlon antiseptic cream is designed to cleanse and prevent infection. It is an over the counter product and can be purchased anywhere that sells medicines such as chemists and supermarkets. Savlon comes in a trademark blue tube with white writing and a white cap. When you squeeze it out of the tube, the cream itself is thick and white. Savlon antiseptic cream is easy to ..." Read review

Savlon Antiseptic Cream

AdvantagesAffordable, easy to apply, positive results, kills bacteria and soothes.

DisadvantagesStrong smelling, can sting a little on application.

"I have always had Savlon Antiseptic Cream in my First Aid Kit for many years now. Not the same tube obviously, but it is something I imagine a lot of others have, too. For those of you that havn't used the product, perhaps you will be impressed by it enough to want to try it for yourself. Savlon is a brand that I trust, my parents having used the product on me regularly when I were a yongster. Often it is worth saving money by buying a supermarket ..." Read review

Cleaning Up Wounds

Advantagesalways takes pain from cut and cleans it

Disadvantages-

"...in any medicine cupboard is Savlon Antiseptic Cream, it is great for everything and always reminds me of when I was younger and would fall and hurt myself and this would clean it up. Savlon cream literally works on everything, it can work as an antiseptic cream, heals blisters and sores, nappy rash, spots and blackheads, chapped skin, sunburn and it helps with cuts and grazes, insect bits and stings, minor burns and scalds and shaving cuts. I wasn't ..." Read review

It's The Blue One!

AdvantagesWidely available, effective and efficient.

DisadvantagesThe smell may not appeal to everyone!

"...fifties now and I remember Savlon Cream being used on scraped knees and minor bumps and grazes when I was a little girl. Instantly recognisable in it's blue and white livery, Savlon is widely available in the United Kingdom and along with it's 'pink' rival, Germolene, is one of those items that many of us have in our first aid boxes. ==The Product== Savlon antiseptic Cream is made by Novartis Consumer Health UK Ltd, of Horsham, West Sussex.

Cleans and Heals

AdvantagesLots of uses

DisadvantagesNone

"...distinctive blue tube with the Savlon logo on the side in white. When you first buy the cream it is sealed at the top so you have to remove the lid and turn it upside down and press the wrong end of the lid into the seal to make a hole. When you squeeze some of the cream out it is a nice white colour and it feels really nice and gentle. It is a nice consistency, not too thick and not too runny. For minor cuts and grazes, you can do as my Mum used ..." Read review
