The Sukin Sensitive Facial Moisturiser is a white, light-weight cream with almost a fluid consistency. It's infused with the core ingredients, Shea Butter, Aloe Vera, Rose Hip Oil, Sesame Seed Oil and Jojoba Seed Oil, to help soothe and balance sensitive skin. I find its very hydrating without leaving any greasy residue. The next morning I wake up to very soft skin, that's less inflamed and I find my foundation really glides on effortlessly.
The moisturiser has a 'natural-vanillery' scent to it that I don't find overpowering at all and it doesn't linger for too long. In comparison to the regular Facial Moisturiser from Sukin, it definitely has a much softer scent as I tested that one in store and it was very strong. I only need a pea sized amount for my whole face as it spreads easily and I even have some left over from that to spread down my neck.
The moisturiser comes in a plastic brown bottle with a black pump dispenser. I love products that have pumps as they're much more hygienic and easy to use, however a full pump of this dispenses way too much product so I only push down slightly to get the right amount. The Pink labeling adds a nice feminine touch.
One negative however, is that it doesn't contain SPF, so its not the ideal all-in-one moisturiser for the daytime.
Overall, I really liked Sukin's Sensitive Facial Moisturiser, it definitely helped the dry patches on my face and it didn't aggravate my skin or cause more blemishes which is important for me. I would recommend this for sensitive skin and also oily/combination skin types who don't need a heavy moisturiser as it is very light on the skin. Sukin's a great affordable brand for those venturing into natural skincare.
Skin is a reasonably priced, organic, natural range of products, I have had issues with every product I have purchased from them. Although this moisturiser smells amazing, like vanilla ice cream, and is full of lovely ingredients, I reacted horribly to something in there and had a rash of inflamed pimples everywhere. My skin is not always on the best of terms with all natural products which is such a shame. On a positive note, it did help with my daughter's eczema flare up behind her knees but I will not repurchase.
I love this moisturiser! It has quite a thick consistency but melts nicely into your skin. It isn't greasy and is absorb fast.
The smell reminds me of vanilla milkshakes. It is not too strong and fades once it is on your skin. Like other Sukin products the bottle has a pump dispenser - I have a tendency to dispense a little too much but other than that, it's fine. I wish they did little travel-sized products too with a different lid because it's really hard to travel with pump packs and such large product volumes.
The labels are a little cheap looking but that's a small sacrifice for a great product at a super cheap price (I picked up the 125mL bottle for about $9). All in all, I love the natural ingredients and they way this product feels on my skin. It is quite hydrating works wonders for my dry skin.
