I bought the Sukin Facial Moisturiser early last year, and have been using it on and off for that whole time. It’s taken me a while to write this review because it took me that long to make up my mind about exactly how I feel about it… Even now I still have mixed feelings!
Let’s start with a bit about the brand and product itself. I wanted to try this out because Sukin is an Australian brand that offers skincare made from natural ingredients, free from a lot of chemicals commonly found in products from other well known brands that may cause skin sensitivities, such as SLS, synthetic fragrances, harsh detergents and mineral oils. Instead, Sukin offers formulas containing botanical ingredients and essential oils. It’s also available at an accessible price point - this moisturiser is only AU$9.95.
The Sukin Facial Moisturiser claims to be a “lightweight cream” that “provides fast absorbing, deeply penetrating hydration that softens and soothes the skin.” Taking a quick look through the ingredients list reveals that is indeed made almost completely from naturally derived ingredients.
