When a beauty product comes recommended by a celeb, it's usually likely to either A) be impossible to find anywhere or B) cost the same as a new car.

But there's one celebrity-approved beauty buy that we bet you'll have no problems tracking down. Why? You probably have a tub of it in your bathroom cabinet, that's why.

Long a favourite of baby's bums everywhere, the Irish-made Sudocrem is actually a pretty amazing skin-care treatment too.

Indeed, both Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and TOWIE star Chloe Sims count themselves as fans, with both ladies swearing by the stuff for spot-busting.

Plus, it now also comes in a cute handbag-sized tube for just €2.40, meaning you won't have to go robbing your mammy's supply.

Here are just a few of the ways celebs and beauty bloggers alike use this Irish favourite…

Killing spots
A quick dab of Sudocrem before bed for a couple of nights on the trot and you should notice that nasty red pimple fading into nothingness. "It really works," says Cheryl.


Night cream
If you've been struggling with redness and breakouts, a thin layer of Sudocrem applied before bed will work wonders. Em from MyPaleSkinBlog says she uses the stuff "a couple of times a week" to help calm her sensitive skin. Just be prepared for white-coated pillowcases the next day!


After shaving
Shaving pro or not, you probably still experience redness and irritation on your legs, underarms or bikini line from time to time. "After you shave, put on some Sudocrem and you'll be fine," says beauty blogger Petite Sal.


Beating dry patches
Elbows, ankles, knees… Apply a good helping before bed to help those pesky dry patches to become silky soft. Do this 24 hours before applying fake tan and you'll be streak-free. 


Helping with sunburn
Burning-hot sunshine is most definitely not a problem we currently have in Ireland, but as well as soothing sunburn, Sudocrem is also good for minor burns. Blistering and peeling, be gone.


As a primer
Go for a very thin layer before foundation to mattify the skin and keep make-up in place. "Since I have combination skin, Sudocrem absorbs the little oil I usually have on my nose, forehead and upper lips," says beauty blogger Hinnah Khalifa.

As it turns out, it might not be that hard to look like a Victoria's Secret Angel.

Well… kind of.

Yes, we might not all be blessed with supermodel good looks, but we can certainly copy their beauty routine. 

South African Angel, Candice Swanepol, shared her beauty secrets with the world in her latest Vogue interview. 

In it, she revealed her top tips for achieving fresh-looking, blemish-free skin – and it's not actually all that hard. 

Indeed, Candice said that she relies on natural products to ensure she's always catwalk-ready.

"Because I wear a lot of make-up for work it's really important to keep my skin clean after work so I use a great natural face wash, tea tree oil and green tea".

"I use organic coconut oil to take my make-up off, I also add it to my smoothies to keep my skin glowing.

"It's a great all round natural beauty product."

Great for us so, as Vita Coco has just released their all-new coconut oil. We're half way there with you now, Candice!

She also revealed that she NEVER sleeps with her make up on (well, duh) to ensure her face is flawless. 

Having being scouted by a model agency when she was just a teenager, Candice has since walked the runway for big names such as Donna Karan and Michael Kors. She also fronted major campaigns for the likes of Nike. 

So it is no wonder that along the way she has picked up a wealth of insider beauty knowledge. As Max Factor's latest celebrity ambassador, the supermodel will be working with the world-renowned make up artist, Pat McGrath. 

"Pat McGrath taught me all about contouring, which is really big right now," she said. 

And if you want to get a body like Candice too, she thanks yoga, boxing and Pilates. 

We think we might just start using our coconut oil and yoga mats out now… supermodel beauty, here we come!
