Australian natural skincare brand, Sukin, recently released their newest range, Sukin Super Greens. And luckily for me, being a beautydirectory Expert panellist, I got to try 2 of the products in the range – Detoxifying Facial Scrub and Nutrient Rich Facial Moisturiser – to review them on the blog.
In case you didn’t know, Sukin is an Australian owned and made brand which is 100% vegan so it’s against animal testing. It is also FREE of :-
- Synthetic fragrances
- Mineral oils
- Animal derivatives
- and more!
And it’s surprisingly affordable!
I’m already a fan of their shampoo and conditioner and I bought a few things for my Mum from Sukin when she came to visit me last year.
Sukin Super Greens Detoxifying Facial Scrub
At first, I was slightly apprehensive when I read the ingredient list. The key actives are Kale, Spirulina, Parsley and Chlorella. I like Kale and Parsley; I’ve never heard of Chlorella but I absolutely hate Spirulina. I went through a green smoothie phase and bought Spirulina powder to add to my smoothies. It is the yukkiest tasting thing EVERRRR! It also smells like mouldy cheese. So yeah, I was worried that I wouldn’t like the smell of the scrub.
Well, whaddya know? I LOVE the smell. In fact, it smells really fruity and delicious…to the point that I almost want to eat it!!!
Every time I use it – which is once a week with facial scrubs – it makes me happy because the scent is gorgeous, the gentle scrubbing motion is therapeutic and then, I am rewarded with soft and brighter skin afterwards!
Even better, Sukin Super Greens Detoxifying Facial Scrub is only $12.99 for a 125ml tube – cheap as chips! You
should can buy it from Priceline.
Sukin Super Greens Nutrient Rich Facial Moisturiser
First up, I want to talk about the packaging. Pump packaging is great for germophobes who don’t like finger-dipping into moisturisers.
However, in terms of moisturising, I felt it needed a helping hand. Due to my extremely dry and sensitive skin, I needed a hydrating toner and/or serum before applying this moisturiser as it wasn’t nourishing enough for me. The Sukin Super Greens range does have a Facial Recovery Serum so I’m guessing that’s the extra oomph I needed for my skin.
I ended up liking it more as a hand lotion because I could sniff away at the lovely scent.
Again, Sukin Super Greens Nutrient Rich Facial Moisturiser is super affordable at the same price of $12.99 for 125ml. You can purchase this at Priceline.
