Sukin Facial Moisturizer Review
April 5th, 2018 | 2 minutes to read
Sukin natural skin care is a brand from Australia. Surprisingly I had no knowledge about it while I was in Australia, only discovering it upon my return to Sweden on a website from UK. The price is very affordable, and ingredients tantalizing, all natural without those on my list of unwanted stuff, so I bought the signature facial moisturizer as well as the sensitive version to try.

Probably the products were developed in Australia, it tends to be very light weight and easy to absorb into skin. The sensitive one has almost no smell, with very mild creamy and waxy tone. The normal one has a very pleasant sweet candy-like fragrance with fresh greenish undertone, which reminds me of the fruity candy I used to eat in kindergarten.
However, if you have dry skin, or live in a dry environment, such as here in the Nordic winter, this might not be enough. I have to apply several times a day when using it alone, or combine it with a few drops of rosehip oil (apply the oil first, then the moisturizer cream). So I would recommend this to people with oily to normal skin, or who live in slightly humid weather.
The bottle comes with a pump, which is easier to use, but not easy to take along when traveling. The last bit left in the bottom of the bottle can’t easily be pumped out either. I would appreciate a squeeze tube with cap.
Use within 6 months after opening.
