Trying Out Sukin Skincare

You know that feeling when you go to Boots for a shower gel and walk out with 3 full-size bags? Of course, you do. Because just like me, you`re probably addicted to beauty. You love sales and you can`t say No to new releases. Truth be told, I am trying to be more conscious with my shopping. My heart may flutter when I see a new product, but most of the times I restrain myself. I am having a more minimalistic approach towards life, where I say NO to consumerism and buy only what I need. 

So why the sudden haul? Well, I am trying to use more vegan skincare products from now on. I don`t want products that contain Sulphates and Parabens anymore. To clarify things, this is a personal decision that has nothing do to with anyone else. I`m not doing it because this is the trend. I`m just at a point in my life where I am more aware of the products I use and their impact. As you know, I`m a big fan of Lush, but I felt the need to branch out and test other natural products.

Sukin is an Australian natural skincare brand that is 100% vegan and carbon neutral. Their products are free from SLS, SLES, synthetic fragrances, animal derivatives, hash detergents, propylene glycol, artificial colours, triethanolamine, mineral oils and parabens. All that and the fact that they`re against animal testing make it a dream come true for every natural skincare enthusiast. However, opinions online are mixed. This seems to be a brand that people either love or hate. Whilst it has its fair share of fans, there are a lot of people that claim that these products cause acne. I`m always iffy about bad breakouts when I try new things, so these claims make me worried. However, I am aware that every skin type is different, so I`ll have to test them and see how it turns out.

At the moments Sukin skincare products are on sale at Boots, but I got only three items. The first one was the Antioxidant Eye Serum, which promises to improve skin elasticity and texture. Some of the ingredients listed are aloe vera, cucumber, rose hip and evening primrose. I have yet to find an eye cream that gets rid of my dark circles and under-eye bags, but for the moment I`d settle for one that hydrates my dry areas.

The next product that I got was the Detoxifying Facial Scrub. It has kale, spirulina and parsley, in order to promote healthy and glowing complexion. I`m attracted by everything with kale in it because apparently, it keeps those sexy Hollywood actors in shape. Granted, it tastes like death, but it`s a small price to pay. Anyways, I`ve never dealt with kale in skincare, but I`m all in.

Last, but not least, I got the Foaming Facial Cleanser. The healthy ingredients (chamomile, evening primrose, aloe vera, witch hazel, etc) are meant to purify and balance your skin. I have to say that my dehydrated skin does not get along with foaming cleansers. And this is the product that most people said it caused horrible breakouts. But it sounds so nice, and I`m really praying for it to work.

After I put these products to use, I`ll get back to you with detailed reviews. I think that 2-3 weeks should be enough to make an idea. Unless everything goes tragically the first time I use them and I get a zit so bad that will take control of me and make me go evil. (anti-hero books are taking over my mind, sorry for the active imagination)

  2. I can't wait to read your detailed reviews. I've actually seen a lot of positive ones on Sukin recently. I tried to go SLS free in hair care products but it's not working for me, in skincare though there is more choice and I've accumulated quite a few more natural products myself x

  3. Thanks for the introduction to this brand! I hadn't heard of it. Will check to see if we can get it here in the States. I'm always so envious of you guys with Boots! You can get some wonderful products (the packaging is always superb) at great prices. We have nothing like that here in the States. LOL

  17. I've used Sukin before but I don't think I've actually used any of those products. Their rosewater mist is quite nice though, and they're super affordable and don't have anything in them I'd drastically avoid either, so they're a safe bet. :)
