Review of Sukin Facial Moisturiser by luxferi
I've used this moisturizer for a couple of years, and it's HG for me. The price isn't bad too, around RM30 at my local pharmacy, and it's easy to find. It comes in a light brown semi-opaque pump bottle to preserve the content's freshness. I do wish that it's more travel friendly though, or come in a travel tube so I don't worry about it spilling all over my luggage bag. You CAN twist the pump itself to lock it, but that is not secure enough. When I travel I just pump some into a small pot for traveling, so no biggie but some people don't like a jar type of container.
The consistency is a light cream that is truly fast absorbing and hydrates my combo skin completely. I use it at night, and experienced no dryness whatsoever sleeping in an air conditioned room in a tropics country. Smells like cupcakes! I don't know... at first I didn't really like the smell because although it smells delish, I don't like my skincare products smelling like food! But over time I got over it and now I don't really pay attention to it anymore. I think a lot of people would love it though. :) I'd played around with other moisturizers, usually with a bunch of chemicals in it and they usually feel they are sitting on top of my face and not really absorb. I'd tried Neutrogena Oil Free Moisture for Combo skin, Simple Kind to Skin Light Moisturizer, Olay Total Effects Gentle Moisturizer, Avon's Regenerist... and I always come back to this one. Now that I've added Olay Pro X Professional Cleansing System brush to my routine, this moisturizer can truly sink in quickly and I can just feel my skin slurrrping it all up! In the morning my skin feels smooth, plump and well hydrated. Love it. <3

Edit: I no longer use this as I discovered I have mild rosacea and this stuff turns my skin pink and feels "warm" on skin. Nevertheless I'm not changing the rating - it really is nice when my skin was at top form.
