It soothes my skin and makes it soft while scenting it lightly with vanilla. This lotion is perfectly light and hydrating for my combination skin, making it a good base for make-up. Inexpensive for such a gentle and effective natural product.
HG stuff! It's perfect for my combination/dry/oily skin. I use another up-market brand for my regular skincare but I find this perfect for putting under makeup before going out, using at the beach or whenever I stay over at a friends house and I don't feel like using my expensive moisturisers. I live in a sub-tropical in Australia climate and this moisturiser doesn't cause me to break out, even during the summer. I have tried the regular facial moisturiser and found that my skin reacted negatively: my skin was red and I developed lots of blackheads on my forehead which I never usually have (I found out it was the orange/citrus oils). Honestly, nothing will stop anyone's skin from becoming shiny in 30+ degree heat, so I'm not worried at all if I have some shine on my t-zone. Great ingredients, simple packaging and very cheap.
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.
