This was something I picked up at Priceline when I ran out of facial cleanser. I like trying out new cleansers; it causes less harm to the skin for something to simply try out (since it’s easily washed off) compared to moisturisers. You’d think I stumbled upon something good, eh? Oh well, read on.
A dual-action creamy cleanser formulated to remove make-up and surface grime delivering clean skin and moisture at the same time. Enriched with nourishing jojoba, avocado and sesame oils with shea and cocoa butter to leave skin soft, leaving no oily residue. Free from sulphates and harsh chemicals that can leave your skin feeling tight and dry.
The cream cleanser is pretty thick in consistency, and smells a bit like biscuits to me. I can’t pinpoint which type of biscuits though. It’s not sickly sweet, which is good. It also does not contain any of the potentially harmful shizz to the skin like SLS, mineral oils, parabens, etc.
And THAT is about the only thing good I can say about this cleanser. Unfortunately, it just didn’t work for me. I didn’t like it at all. Everytime I cleansed my face, it left my skin feeling oily, as though unwashed. To make matters worse, it made my skin very dry after each cleanse, giving me peely cheeks. My skin improved very soon after I stopped using it.
I left it in the bathroom, hoping Tim would, y’know, finish it up so that it’s not wasted (that’s what men are for, right? To use up the stuff we don’t like? Ahem). Even he, the person who can’t be arsed about skincare, didn’t like it. That’s sayin’ something.
So now, I’m not sure if I even want to try out anything else from the Sukin skincare range. What do you think? Give it another chance on, say, the body wash?
Sukin Cream Cleanser retails at AU$9.95 for 125ml and is available at leading pharmacies and health stores.
What I like about it: Does not contain potentially harmful chemicals. Smells very biscuit-y. Very affordable.
What I do not like about it: Leaves an oily film on my skin after cleansing, gave me dry patches on my cheeks.
