Before I start, let me just say that I am no skincare expert and I’m just trying my hand at reviewing the products I buy and usually fall in love with. I, myself have been doing a lot of skincare/cosmetics research on Google and am thankful to all those people that have reviewed the products that I desperately wanted an opinion on! So… here goes!
Sukin Organics Facial Moisturiser (125ml) Review
The Sukin Facial Moisturiser is a pretty lightweight consistency which I absolutely adore because there’s nothing I hate more than feeling like I have a greasy face after applying creamier moisturisers. I use this after a shower and because it’s so light, it just sinks into the skin and my face felt so much softer and hydrated instantly.
I bought this bottle back in early February and it’s lasted me about three months because you really don’t need a lot to feel the effect. Mind you I use this product at least twice a day and there’s still a good quarter of it left. I’ve already repurchased another bottle with the pump opening and waiting for this one to finish up so I can crack that open.
I won’t lie that the scent was what really drew me into my first Sukin Skincare purchase at a local Chemist Warehouse store. It smells of a vanilla and citrus fusion which I’m guessing are from the tangerine, mandarin and grapefruit oils. The moisturiser itself isn’t synthetically fragranced, so it shouldn’t irritate your skin! Although, my mum wasn’t a fan of the scent when I made her smell my hands after I’d applied it so I guess it’s best that you test it out before you buy.
I am aware that this product is advertised as a lightweight day cream, but I use it before bed and so far I’ve seen amazing results. I know they also offer a night cream, but I think this facial moisturiser will suffice for me.
In terms of packaging, many people have complained about the pump top and how annoying it is to travel with, but I have the flip top cap dispenser which makes it really easy for me to throw this in my bag and go. I also love the simplistic packaging across all of Sukin’s products.
Sukin’s products are accredited by the Choose Cruelty Free program, meaning they don’t test on animals which is pretty damn awesome if you ask me! The packaging also states a list of things that are NOT included in their products to stay true to their ‘organic’ brand image. Now I am no chemical engineer, but using skincare that doesn’t contain synthetic fragrances, artificial colours, harsh detergents and parabens – particularly on my face – sounds good to me!
I can’t remember how much I bought it for, but it retails for $9.95 AUD on the website. And I’ve seen them go for about $7 – 8 at Priceline and Chemist Warehouse, depending on the sales and discounts they have going on. I’ll definitely be using this moisturiser, along with the rest of their skincare line until I get bored of it. But so far, I absolutely love the results I’m seeing additional to the scent of all of their products. Win!
