Tell Me More about Sukin Super Greens Facial Moisturiser
Sukin is a brand hailed from the land of koalas, or specifically from the city of Melbourne. It differentiates itself as a skin care that uses natural ingredients that are free from many things, such as paraben, petrolatum, fragrances etc.
To those who love animals, Sukin is also cruelty free, with no animal derivatives used in its products.
Sukin carries a range of products targeting different skin needs, such as Purely Ageless for mature skin and Hydration for dry and dehydrated skin.
Today, the moisturiser we are reviewing is from the Super Greens skincare range.
What is Sukin “Super Greens” range?
Products from the Super Greens range is derived from botanical and antioxidants which is said to hydrate and leave the skin radiant and glowing.
The Super Greens blend consists of Kale, Spirulina, Parsley and Chlorella, Acai and Goji.
Sukin Super Greens Facial Moisturiser
The moisturiser under the Sukin’s Super Greens range contains the same Super Greens blend that we shared earlier, but also has hydrating oils of Rosehip, Avocado and Jojoba.
In terms of skin type, Sukin Super Greens Facial Moisturiser is meant for those with normal to dry skin, which is great for my mature, “no-longer” oily skin.
Sukin Super Greens Moisturiser claims to minimise the appearance of fine lines and would leave the skin feeling nourished and hydrated.
Is it true?
I’ve used Sukin Super Greens Nutrient Rich Facial Moisturiser for a while and is ready to share more about my experience in my usual “pros-cons” review style. Let’s start with the “goods” first!
6 Things I love about Sukin Super Greens Facial Moisturiser?
1. Feels Nourishing & Comfortable
Sukin moisturiser feels quite rich on the skin and assured me that my skin is sufficiently protected from the elements.
What’s even better is that although it feels rich when first applied, it absorbs quickly with no stickiness and excess greasiness. It is a very comfortable feeling, perhaps also factoring my dehydrated skin-state.
My sunscreen and makeup could sit-up nicely without any signs of running.
2. Friendly to Pimple-Prone Skin
While thick, Sukin Super Greens Facial Moisturiser have never triggered a single zit on my pimple-prone skin. I’ve used it for at least one month by now, on a daily basis.
3. Generous Quantity
I love the generous quantity of 125ml and think it will last me a long time. It seems like skincare brands from OZ and NZ (e.g. Essano) generally provide a good quantity for their moisturisers.
But Sukin beats Essano hands-down – it’s 125ml for Sukin vs 75ml for Essano Rosehip Moisturiser.
4. Good Price
For an all-natural product that comes in more than double the quantity of industry average, I am pleased with its pocket-friendly price.
In Singapore, it costs about $20. I bought mine in Johor (Malaysia) during a promo. You can find its latest online price here.
5. Hygienic to use
Sukin Super Greens Facial Moisturiser comes in a tinted plastic pump bottle, which makes it hygienic to use, as compared to most cream that comes in pot containers.
6. Lovely Scent
I love the fruity/veggie scent. It’s not overly-sweet and honestly-speaking, I don’t mind wearing it as my perfume. I really like it! :)
What’s even better to know is that the fragrance is all natural (since we know Sukin doesn’t contain synthetic fragrance).
Enough of the goods. Let’s see if Sukin Super Greens Moisturiser has any flaws.
What’s Not Great about Sukin Super Greens Moisturiser?
1. Is this a body moisturiser?
I asked myself this question several times, seriously. Sukin seems to use a generic bottle for most of its skincare products, regardless of the amount required per product.
A single pump simply dispenses too much cream, such that I’d wondered for a moment if I’d bought a body moisturiser.
Therefore, dispensing this takes a bit of effort as we need to adjust our strength to ensure only a fraction of the cream comes out.
2. Skin remains dry & flaky
I was hopeful that Sukin Super Greens Moisturiser will provide the much-needed nutrients and hydration to help my skin feel smooth and supple again. But, my skin remains dry and flaky.
To be fair to Sukin, the state of my dehydrated skin could be due to other skincare that I’m using, such as Vitamin C serum and foaming face wash.
I will adjust my skincare (possibly removing foaming face wash from my routine) and see if my skin will see some improvements soon.
Recommendations: Is Sukin Super Greens Moisturiser worth a buy?
I still enjoy using Sukin Super Greens Facial Moisturiser and find the consistency suitable for both day and night use. If you have dry skin, this cream will make your skin feel well-moisturised and comfortable.
However, it didn’t exactly remove my flaky-skin condition. Therefore, I wouldn’t mind repurchasing this as a basic (and rich) cream. But will certainly be looking out to explore its other product variants, such as Hydration and Rosehip ranges. Hope these will solve my dry-skin issue. Rating: 4/5
