CONFESSIONS: of a Scrubaholic (Part 7) - Sukin + Giveaway!...

I've been going a bit Sukin stir-crazy lately - absolutely loving exploring their range of skincare. Their products have absolutely EVERYTHING going for them - excellent quality, jam-packed with goodness, minus the usual swag of yucky chemicals, Australian owned & made, refreshingly affordable, available at the supermarket, 100% carbon neutral and vegan, and they don't test on animals! Wowee, see what I mean?

They have three facial scrubs available, and I'll be honest, I simply can't choose a favourite - all three are fab for different reasons, so here's the skinny...

Oil Balancing Charcoal Pore Refining Facial Scrub (125ml, $12.95)
This is a bluey-grey kind of earthy scented cream with jojoba beads and bamboo charcoal - gentle enough for me to use every day, except I'm always tempted by the other two in the range lol. Some charcoal scrubs I've tried are highly effective but really quite messy because they're so intensely black - this one however won't require a cleanup of the shower recess or basin afterwards, and that's already a bonus. So many natural ingredients - Aloe, Sesame Seed Oil, Moringa Extract, Chamomile, Willowherb, Bilberry, Mandarin, Lavender and Lime oils, oh boy the list goes on and on. I'd SO rather scrub my complexion with all these plants, herbs and fruits  This scrub is especially for oily to combo skin (c'est moi) and it's non-drying nor does it cause any irritation or redness. Definitely adding this to my list of staples - my blackheads have left the building, even the ones on my nose ...

Revitalising Facial Scrub (125ml, $9.95)
This pearly white cream with brown specks has a delicate floral fragrance, and bamboo and ground walnut shells as the exfoliators. More of a polish, I find it a tad gentler, and the focus is on calming, soothing and replenishing moisture while removing all the gunk. Suitable for all skin types, sometimes I use this at night instead of a cleanser even if I've used one of the others in the morning - makes my skin feel refreshed and deeply cleansed without any tightness or tingling. Love it ...

Super Greens Detoxifying Facial Scrub (125ml, $12.95)
I know I said before that I didn't favour any one of these over the others, but I'm leaning ever so slightly towards this flavour. Like the charcoal one, it has the jojoba beads as the sloughing agents, plus ground bamboo - this is the gentlest of the three. It's also white (not green lol) and smells a wee bit sweeter and fruitier than the Revitalising one, and the ingredients are quite different - Kale, Spirulina, Chlorella, Parsley, Pineapple, Licorice, Lime Peel and Cranberry. Just reading those names makes my mouth water and hankering for a plate of freshly steamed green veggies and a bowl of fruit salad! Also suitable for all skin types, this leaves my skin feeling baby soft, looking healthy, glowing and I just KNOW it's been botanically nourished. The other two formulations score pretty well with some terrific reviews on beautyheaven, but this baby gets 5 big fat gold stars. Definitely a keeper ...

And soooo...because it's Christmas and I want to share the Sukin love, I'm giving away a Super Greens Facial pack, ordered online a few weeks back...

The box contains the Super Greens Detoxifying Clay Masque (personal fave), Nutrient Rich Facial Moisturiser, and the aforementioned and lovingly reviewed Detoxifying Facial Scrub ...

The box is quite bulky, so I'll limit this giveaway to...

  1. Yes indeed I have. I love their night cream which comes in a huge jar and lasts for ages. I like the size of their small pump bottles of cleanser and moisturiser as they are a wonderful size if im heading overseas for a few weeks.

    1. Thanks for the tip Fawn - I haven't tried any of their moisturisers yet, but I do love their cleansers, masks & scrubs ♥

  2. Yes, but I've only tried Sukin Body Wash and love it. Love to try this face range. It sounds like a great product like the body wash.

    1. I haven't tried the body wash yet hon, the lime & coconut one appeals so I'll be scouring the shops for that one for sure xxx

  3. I have been using Sukin products for several years, tried rosehip oil, facial oils, facial moisturisers, toners, body lotions, shower gel...but haven't tried the Super Greens range.

    1. Hey stackcats the mask was the first of the Super Greens range I tried - it's one of the best, I actually prefer it to any of the L'Oreal ones (and I love them lol!) xxx

  4. My favourite Skin product is a staple in my skincare routine - the Rosehip Oil!

    1. Thanks Jazzy, I haven't tried that one yet - best of luck!

  5. I have tried some of the Sukin range. My fave is their Facial Mist Toner ♥

    1. I love the Mist Toner as well Ange - it was the very first Sukin product I tried several years ago! xxx
