Hope you are all in your best of health and happiness. Today I am going to review one of the facial scrubs from the famous Australian organic skincare brand, Sukin.
Price: AUD 12.95 for 125 ml
A deeply refining base of Jojoba beads and Bamboo Charcoal, combined with Moringa extract, works to exfoliate the skin whilst keeping the pores clear of impurities. Full of vitamins and enzymes, Rooibos tea, Willow Herb and Coconut oil purify and balance the complexion, and may assist with guarding against breakouts. Bilberry extract and White tea provide important antioxidants, as Aloe Vera, Chamomile and Cucumber work to soothe and calm the skin for a healthy, balanced glow.
Apply a small amount to fingertips. In a circular motion, massage into face and neck. Rinse well with warm water.
My Experience with Sukin Oil Balancing Pore Refining Facial Scrub:
These days, charcoal is being used in various skin care products. Let’s be clear that this is not your everyday charcoal. The charcoal used in beauty products is activated, hence it acts like a magnet to attract impurities and oil. Charcoal happens to be the key ingredient in this scrub as well. Also, this is an organic brand, which does not test on animals.
Sukin is an Australian brand. Their mantra is, “Skincare that doesn’t cost the Earth.” This skin care range of Sukin, the oil balancing range, is made with powerful ingredients that tackle oily skin issues. The products by this brand do not contain harsh chemicals like sodium lauryl sulphate, sodium laureth sulphate, synthetic fragrances, animal derivatives, harsh detergents, propylene glycol, artificial colours, triethanolamine, mineral oils, EDTA or parabens.
This particular scrub contains three important ingredients: charcoal, rooibos tea, and willowherb. Charcoal is highly-effective and can absorb minerals, toxins, impurities, and other harmful substances from the skin. It can also stimulate cell growth, leaving your skin supple, delicate and smooth. Rooibos tea extract is high in antioxidant actives. It is rich in polyphenols and flavonoids, hence it assists in revitalising the complexion. It also speeds up the rate of rejuvenation while protecting against free-radical damage.
Willowherb is a potent anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial ingredient that targets acne causing bacteria. It helps to reduce irritant effects and is calming, regenerative and moisturising. It helps to soothe acne-prone skin and reduce skin redness. This scrub comes in an easy to use dark grey colored squeezy tube. This is a gentle, non-abrasive scrub. Hence, it won’t damage the surface of your skin. But, you can definitely feel the active ingredients working away when you apply the scrub on your skin. It has a very creamy, moisturising texture with a deeply refining base of jojoba beads and bamboo charcoal.
After I cleanse my face, I apply the scrub as a mask and let it sit for a few minutes and then gently massage it. After that, I wash it off after a few minutes. I love to use this scrub not only on my face but also on my neck. This scrub has many mild enzymes that naturally exfoliate my skin. The scrub contains jojoba microbeads which we can feel while using the scrub. These seeds help in mild exfoliation.
This scrub is FULL of vitamins, enzymes and antioxidants which purify and balance the complexion. This is a wonderful organic scrub which mildly exfoliates the skin, controls the oil secretion, minimises the pores and calms the skin for a healthy, balanced glow. Thus, this is a wonderful product which is great for our skin and also our environment.
