Spring has come around again, and I am continuing on my clean skincare journey. Most recently I tried a few items from Sukin skincare, a line produced in Australia, that has a laundry list of items their products aren’t made with, like pthalates and parabens, but also without propylene glycol or mineral oils. And they’re cruelty-free, too. Sold!
The Sukin product line is extensive, with everything from skin and body care to hair- and baby-focused products. They also offer several ranges based on your specific concerns, like blemished, mature or sensitive skin. I was also very impressed by their mission; to bring the best-quality, most affordable and safest skincare line around. a visit to their website, www.sukinorganics.com, will reveal all of their processes (something that most companies would rather you didn’t know) with full transparency. Like that the only hard-to-pronounce ingredient they include is less than 1% in each product. And it’s only there to prevent the natural ingredients from breaking down or picking up any bacteria in shipping. Aww, they really do care about their customers!
I began my adventure with three of their skincare items: the Micellar Cleansing Water ($8.00), the Hydrating Facial Masque ($12.00) and the Antioxidant Eye Serum ($14.00). Because the temperatures are climbing, I’m starting to look into lightening my routine a bit, and I have always been a huge fan of cleansing waters. It’s so easy and quick, and it smells amazing, too (did I mention no artificial fragrances?)
The mask is simply terrific as well. Light yet creamy, it’s white in the container but goes on clear. So you can walk around your house while it’s working it’s magic without scaring the family pet – you’ll just have pretty, glowy skin! I usually give it about ten minutes and remove it with a warm, damp washcloth. My skin. Feels. Great. The eye cream is just as nice, although it is my most recent purchase, so it hasn’t had quite enough time to start showing the benefits. But it is nice and light, and makes my eyes feel refreshed with seeming greasy or oily at all. And it has its own pleasant, not-overwhelming scent.
I think you can already surmise what my general opinion is on Sukin. But let me also say that if you have sensitive skin – or not – and really like to pay attention to what you put on it, this could be your go-to brand for a long time. You can find all of their products on their website, but they can also be found at outlets like Whole Foods (I picked mine up at my local co-op.) I hope this gave you some good info and maybe inspired you to give this awesome line a try. Comment down below if you’ve used Sukin before and what you think of it. Have a great week!
