It’s no secret I have a thing for skincare. Finding a good brand that ticks all the boxes can be a bit of a challenge however.
I’ve been using Sukin’s rosehip oil for years now and I’m a massive fan, so over the past year, I’ve gradually tested out some more of their products.
Here’s a mini review of all the Sukin products I’ve tried and my thoughts on the brand in general.
A bit about Sukin:
The number one brand for natural skincare in Australia, Sukin launched in 2007, providing an answer to those seeking natural skincare at an affordable price.
Sukin products are “Australian made with ingredients that are naturally derived, cruelty free and vegan. All formulations are 100% Carbon Neutral, biodegradable and grey water safe.” (Taken from website)
A bit about me:
Skin type – Combination/oily that tends to experience more dryness during winter. Prone to breakouts but nothing too concerning.
Certified Organic Rosehip Oil
I previously mentioned that I am a massive fan of this product. This is the only rose hip oil I have ever tried, so I don’t exactly have anything to compare it to. In saying that, I’ve never had any reason to want to try any other brand of rose hip oil, as I love this one so much.
Moisture Restoring Night Cream
The best night cream I’ve ever tried. Seriously. I’m fairly picky when it comes to night creams and this one ticks all my metaphorical boxes. It’s not heavy and doesn’t sit on the skin, it actually absorbs deep into my skin and leaves it feeling smooth and hydrated. If you have extremely dry skin however, I’m not too sure how much you’d enjoy this product as I don’t have super dry skin
Foaming Facial Cleanser
I didn’t enjoy this cleanser too much. Due to its foaming nature, it does leave my skin feeling tight and dry, which isn’t pleasurable. Although for me, this can be easily fixed with a hydrating oil and moisturiser, it my not be so easy for someone with dryer skin than myself. Someone with oiler skin however, may enjoy this.
Pore Refining Facial Scrub
At first I wasn’t a massive fan of this product, but I warmed to it over time. I have noticed it has helped keep breakouts at bay, thanks to its charcoal properties. One thing I will say about this product, and other charcoal products I’ve tried – is that they don’t smell the nicest.
Hydrating Facial Masque
Having only ever used clay and sheet masks in the past, I’ve never tried a mask like this before. I’d describe it as a mask that feels just like a moisturiser. Once dry, it turns matte on the skin and once removed, it leaves my skin feeling hydrated and supple.
Anti Pollution Facial Masque
I can’t say enough good things about this mask. Reaching for it the most during times when my skin is breaking out, I use it all over my face, or just on problem areas where my skin has broken out. Once again, it contains charcoal, so it doesn’t smell great but that is a small price to pay for an otherwise great mask.
Soap Free Body Wash
This interested me from the start. The “soap free” aspect intrigued me, making me believe it would be great for dry skin. Due to its soap free nature, it feels fairly thin in texture and doesn’t work up an intense lather. This didn’t bother me, however it took some getting used to. Not a bad product, however not the best body wash I’ve ever tried. Someone with quite sensitive skin may enjoy this more.
My Overall Thoughts
In my experience, Sukin make products I throughly enjoy using. For the most part, the products I’ve tried have worked for me, the only exception being the cleanser that is not suited to my skin, and therefore not my cup of tea. My favourite product of theirs would have to be their night cream and the charcoal mask.
I’m not vegan, nor do I exclusively use cruelty free products, however it’s great to know these products are an option for those who do follow a completely vegan/cruelty free lifestyle.
To anyone thinking about trying this brand, I’d strongly recommend trying out some of their skincare, and discover which products of theirs work for you. They have a range of different skincare items designed for all different skin types and needs.
