Sukin Skincare

Skincare that doesn’t cost the Earth.

Quite a statement but one that is apt when is comes to the brand Sukin. Originally an Australian skincare range, Sukin has literally exploded worldwide with it’s incredible skincare at a mid-range price.  I’ve recently been really into natural skincare and bodycare simply because I’ve found my skin feels better and looks better when I use good ingredients on it rather than buying cheaper brands. In general, cheaper brands may have the same active ingredient as higher end brands but they also tend to have not so great filler ingredients. Sukin on the other hand brings you the higher end formulations of skincare at a nice price that is accessible to everyone.

The great thing about Sukin is that it has quite an extensive range of products, and each range has it’s own name. The ranges are sorted according to skin type and what exactly your skin needs might be. I, myself have two products from the Super Greens range which is targeted towards detoxifying the skin to achieve a nice healthy glowing complexion.

The Sukin Detoxifying Clay Masque is a great one to use if your suffering from a lot of tiny bumps on your skin, or even if your prone to spots. The tub it comes in gives you 100mls of product and is plastic meaning it’s definitely more travel friendly than a glass jar. The lid is a twist-off & has the added security of a plastic closure cap to seal it. The texture of the mask itself is rather thick but not too thick that it doesn’t spread evenly onto the skin.

Colour wise it looks a lot darker in the tub, when applied it goes on rather a sheerer shade than it is and darkens as it dries down. I personally like removing this with a wet face cloth but it can be rinsed off fairly easily and gently. I found my skin felt softer, tighter and a lot brighter after using this. It does bring to the surface a few breakouts in the following days after its use but continue use of it will clear them quickly.

I have a bit of a love hate relationship with this next product from the Super Greens range. The Sukin Nutrient Rich Facial Moisturiser is a great face cream to use if you suffer from dehydrated, dry and sensitive skin. I love using this when my skin needs a shot of hydration to boost my glow factor. My only issue with it is that is super thick! and takes forever to absorb.

Intially I thought because of it’s thickness it would be really difficult under foundation, and it is. However I have found if you mix it with foundations it makes the foundation simply glide onto the skin and slot into the pores seamlessly, giving an airbrushed finish to the complexion.

Because it’s a white based cream it can also be used to slightly lighten any foundation shade that’s just a tad to dark. The mask retails for 15 euros and the moisturiser for 12 euros and they can be found at TKMaxx and Holland & Barretts here in Ireland.
