Beautyknot ~ My Skin Care Diary

Archive for November 2nd, 2011

I was looking for a natural facial scrub and this Australia skincare comes to my mind. Sukin is a natural and affordable skincare that I don’t mind to try more of their product. I got this free with their Eye Serum purchase, so basically I have no idea how much it costs but it should be around AUD10/125ml in Australia.

According to Sukin, the facial scrub contains bamboo extract and ground walnut shells exfoliate dirt and impurities that can dull the appearance of skin then aloe vera, rosehip oil and German chamomile work to soothe and relax.

 .

Application: Apply a small amount to fingertips. In a circular motion, massage into face and neck. Rinse well with warm water.

This is actually my first natural facial scrub, unlike many 2-in-1 facial scrubs that acting both cleanser and exfoliator, it has creamy base and doesn’t foam up. Normally I use it on cleansed and damp skin, it does leave a sheer moisture film on skin after rinsed off with warm water, keeping skin non-drying and soft. I think this is nice for dry skin but grown up as a tropical baby, I still prefer squeaky fresh skin especially when the weather is very muggy.

.

 .

Depending on my skin condition, sometimes I found the scrub particles are too coarse and sharp for my non-irritated facial skin, sometimes it worked just fine. In both circumstances, I should thanks to the creamy base for facilitating the scrubbing, it is at least much gentle than Kiehls’s micro-dermabrasion (The tube lasts about 1.5 years…!). However, I will continue search for more gentle and effective alternative.

.

 .

 .

In term of result, although skin is smoother after exfoliating but it just works decently as normal drugstore facial scrub such as L’Oreal, Olay, Biore…etc. Besides Sukin facial scrub has pleasant natural scent, I think it might be slightly gentle than those drugstore scrubs because it is non-foaming and moisturizing. I also used this as body scrub (^ ᴥ ^) and I found the effectiveness is really so-so, it seemed to be too mild to slough away my abundant dead skin cells in hot & humid season.

 .

It is recommended 1~2 usages a week and use within 6 months after opened the seal. Well, this is why I also used it as body scrub because I can’t finish the product within the timeline, since it is given complimentary so I wouldn’t feel pain by using it generously.
