Pregnant with my second child, my skin has been dry and itchy. All the recommended lotions and creams for pregnancy leave a film on my skin that makes me uncomfortable. I found the sukin brand at my local chemist and on a whim gave it a go. I picked up the body lotion and a few other pieces and im in love. On dry skin its absorbs really easy so best on damp warm skin straight out of shower or bath. Smells like the incense/candle shop I frequent and no oily greasy film left on skin. Im soft and smooth, itch free and I can dress quickly without rubbing off on clothing. Love love love. Cost was $12.95 for a 250ml pump bottle that is in my opinion is nice looking and im happy to have on my bathroom counter for anyone to see. Now waiting for next pay day to buy more of the sukin range.
I'm using my second bottle and its lovely.
- smells devine... a natural fragrance that is non perfumy
- non greasy and moisturizing
- good ingredients
- no parabens or petrochemicals/mineral oil
- comes with a pump
It is a great product. The smell is so nice. Doesn't feel greasy at all. Suitable for everyday use.
I'm picky with my body lotions. I try moisturise my whole body every day, but I prefer to avoid mineral oil on my skin because I'm paranoid. For a long while I used just almond oil or olive oil, but i found that almond oil almost left a cracked film on my skin (I guess mineral oil would do the same), and I started getting lazy with oils by the time I switched to olive oil. Its not the cheapest product, but its really not that expensive. Plus, its hard to find a cheaper moisturiser that actually works. I like the texture, it hydrates, it isn't greasy, the smell is fine, and its works. Plus, if you get a bigger bottle, the price drops a decent amount.
I tend towards dry skin, and find this pretty effective as long as I'm moisturising regularly. It is quite creamy, and absorbs into the skin well.
(However I have had bad experiences with a Sukin shampoo, so I am only reccommending this specifically, I would not take the high rating on this to the entire range)
* Moisturising - does what it says on the label
* Very light lemongrassy scent. Not 'herbal', not at all strong
* Third time buying, will continue until anything better comes along (tried 1 250mL first, and then 2 500mL bottles)
* Natural / recyclable / carbon neutral
* Whilst not ~too~ pricey, $20 for 500mL is a little bit much, and there aren't any other bigger sizes (however I got this at priceline who often do sales, so I got 20% off entire sukin range)
* Extremely plain packaging, and not in a 'cute minimal' sense (c'mon, papyrus script?)
I love this product in the winter when my skin is a bit dry. It applies easily and gets absorbed completely. No shininess left behind . The smell is amazing (think Aveda-ish) even thought I don't generally like scented products. I used the Dr.Bronner cream before this that was effective but I like the results (and scent) from the Sukin cream much more.
I love this lotion, it is my go to after every shower. It smells wonderful and really compliments the body wash from the same company. I apply this on damp skin and work it in well from my ankles to neck and then on my feet. It absorbs really well and a little goes a long way unless you are applying it to dry skin, you may need more for that. I also find myself using this after washing my hands and again on my hands at night before bed. I love the pump packaging, the product is natural and the packaging recyclable, the dark plastic protects the product essential oils and it is very inexpensive for an organic product. Also I have to add that it doesn't irritate my skin after sun exposure like some other natural ingredient products I have used in the past. I have been using this for 6 months and will continue to do so.
one of the best organic body lotions that I have ever tried! It beats the expensive brand out there and it smells so so nice. It's extra hydrating as well and I know this because I have extra dry skin! I just wish it comes in a more travel-size packaging.
Love, love, love Sukin products. Always safe, fresh and effective. This moisturiser is great in the pump bottle, I bought the clicky top bottle once and it sucked! This is just a nice gentle moisturiser, your skin can breathe after applying unlike some thick, oily creams and my skin feels plump and hydrated afterwards. I also cant get enough of their clay mask, its wonderful.
This is a really good moisturiser if you don't need a lot of moisturisation. I have very dry legs and unfortunately this wasn't moisturising enough for them. Despite this, I could see that my legs absorbed the lotion very effectively. I also felt the lotion provided a lasting moisturising effect as opposed to many other lotions which only provide a superficial benefit by making the skin look moisturised until it gets washed off. I really like the naturalness of the product and the reasonable price point as I find that many quality natural products can often be expensive. I also really like the amber plastic packaging - simple but nice, and kind of a cheaper looking version of Aesop. I also generally don't like natural/herbal/medicinal type scents, but the scent in this wasn't as intrusive for me as, for instance, Akin products. I won't be repurchasing as it wasn't moisturising enough for me, but if you're not particularly dry and only need a light moisturiser, I recommend you give this a go.
