Lately I’ve found myself acquainted with Sukin, an Aussie skincare brand which prides itself on using natural ingredients and believes in making their products accessible to a wider market (“Skincare that doesn’t cost the earth” is their trademarked slogan). The arrival of their new body scrubs caught my attention because they are free from microbeads.
There are three variations of Sukin’s Body Scrubs: Purifying*, Renewing and Energising*. Purifying (in a white tube) contains micro particles of bamboo extract and ground walnut shells mixed with aloe vera, chamomile, rose hip, jojoba and sesame to hydrate the skin.
The Energising option (brown tube) uses coconut shell powder and ground coffee beans for a gentle yet invigorating exfoliation to boost circulation and revitalise the surface of the skin. The smell of coconut is distinctively sweet, in fact it makes me think of a Bounty bar. It also has the same hydrating ingredients as the Purifying one with added rose hip and vitamin E serving as antioxidants for leaving skin looking and feeling soft. These creamy scrubs don’t have an overpowering scent so they are perfectly unisex-friendly and unlikely to irritate as well – a win-win for sensitive skin, and oh, they’re free from sulphates and parabens.
If you’re on the look-out for a decent body scrub, it’ll be worth your while to give Sukin a whirl.
