We’ve all seen it around before in one store or another. You may be guilty of thinking that it’s simply a drug store brand, thinking ‘how good can this really be?’. Well, the secret is out, and Sukin is the brand you never knew you needed in your life until today!
First of all, the entire company is totally vegan and cruelty-free. Since their conception in 2007, the company have prided themselves on using products which are free from animal derivatives and by-products. So you can rest assured knowing that no precious lives were harmed in the replenishing of those under-eye bags.
Not only that, but Sukin’s testing practices are completely free from animal testing. They ensure they only source ingredients from suppliers who also do not test on animals.
As well as being cruelty-free, Sukin maintains a continued commitment to the environment by reducing carbon emissions. The brand has received the Carbon Neutral tick of approval by meeting the Carbon Institute’s NoC02 certification standards and continue to work to offset emissions.
The company supports environmental projects in India and China in order to counterbalance any negative emissions they do produce.
Just when you thought you couldn’t be more impressed with this amazing brand, we’ve got another secret to let you in on. The brand uses 100% recyclable and BPA free packaging!
All of their formulas are ‘grey-water safe’, meaning that washing your product down the drains of the world will not cause any damage to rivers, oceans, plants and animals once it leaves our faces and bodies. The formulations are biodegradable and free from microplastic beads which can harm our environment.
If you’re still not sold, check out our top three favourite products and let them speak for themselves!
Antioxidant Eye Serum $19.95
This little beauty is perfect for all skin types and uses a combination of Plant Extracts such as Aloe Vera and Cucumber to hydrate your eye area. Rosehip Oil, Evening Primrose and Borage work together to fight signs of ageing while nourishing and hydrating deeply. Use this once or twice daily and stay on top of fine lines and dehydrated looking eyes!
Detoxifying Clay Mask $15.95
We all love the occasional minute to ourselves to relax with a facemask and a good book. This Detoxifying Clay Mask is now officially the only mask you will ever need! It’s packed full of vitamins and antioxidants which work to detox, brighten, and minimise fine lines. With ingredients like Kale, Goji Berry and Avocado, you may be mistaken for thinking you’re purchasing a gourmet salad, but that just goes to show how natural these products really are.
Suitable for any normal skin type, but highly recommended for dull skin, you’ll wake up feeling like a brand-new person. In the words of Elsa, ‘let it glow’, well… sort of.
Sensitive Cleansing Lotion $9.95
If your skin is more on the sensitive side, you’re probably very cautious about the products you even think about putting on your body! No one wants to deal with that burning or tingling on a red raw face. No thanks!
Luckily you haven’t been forgotten about! Sukin have a full range of ‘Sensitive’ products, which won’t irritate or upset even the most vulnerable of skin types. Our favourite is the Sensitive Cleansing Lotion, with Cucumber, Chamomile and Aloe Vera which all work together to soothe and hydrate skin. To get the best out of this product, remove any makeup or exterior dirt with Sukin Micellar Cleansing Water first, then massage the lotion into your damp skin. It’s a combination of natural ingredients will work to purify skin, remove impurities and excess oils, and leave skin feeling clean and soft.
