Review: Sukin Cream Cleanser

Ever since I found out that my Simple facial cleanser was in fact owned by Unilever (WHY, SIMPLE?!), I went out to find a nice, cheap and cruelty free cleanser.
As I was browsing the internet I remembered a small brand called Sukin that Farmers stocked in their beauty department. I immediately rushed down to my nearest mall to check out the brands. They certainly had me in mind - cruelty free and organic skincare that was also affordable and effective. I decided to pick up the Cream cleanser instead of the foaming one, since cleansers that don't lather are less likely to irritate my skin.

Price: $12 (ish, I can't remember properly)

Packaging: 4/5

The cleanser comes in a small, cute little bottle with a pump for dispensing. The bottle itself is environmentally friendly and recyclable. The only trait that knocks a point of is the actual 'unscrewing' the pump - it took me a long time and help from someone else to open up the pump.

Product: 4/5

The cleanser has a strong herbal smell to it, but it's not a smell that will cause migraines. I like the smell - it makes the product feel very natural.

The product has of course, a whit cream-like consistency that's very smooth. It's got a lot of skin-friendly oils on it, but I discovered that one pump makes your face basically waterproof. Half a pump should be enough to cover the entire face and be able to rinse it cleanly.

What I really liked about this product is that it does not leave your skin feeling tight or oily. Skin becomes smooth to the touch and almost like it's been moisturised. I really the feeling it gives.

However, this product can only remove light traces of makeup - say, tinted moisturiser + pencil eyeliner. If you're wearing anything more, you're going to need makeup remover or wipes.

I would recommend this for:

Despite having oily combination skin, I still like this cleanser a lot. It's very gentle and I need moisture in my face because of my constant usage of a acne treatments. I would definitely say that this product will be wonderful for dry skin and normal skin in the winter. Those with combination skin might also like this product, depending on how oily your skin gets. Anyone with sensitive skin or easily irritated skin should probably stay away from this product - it has lavender oil in it, which is a common skin irritant. However, Sukin has their own Sensitive Skin range, so there's something for everybody!

All in all...

I really like this product! It's not too expensive and definitely worth trying out. It hasn't broken me out or irritated my skin which I'm thankful for. It's a wonderful little gem.
