Sukin: Super Greens For Your Skin (*)
We’re constantly been told that super greens are incredibly nutritional for our body and the higher the intake the more benefits we will gain. But as well as consuming those small group of greens from the algae and cereal grass family, what about applying it?
Sukin Skincare has been my favourite natural, cruelty free, carbon neutral, chemical free, vegan skincare brand *intake of breath* ever since I discovered their natural range over a year ago. Their products have always agreed with my skin, helping to clear and alkaline the surface. So when the Sukin team told me they have a new range, I jumped at the chance to get my hands on it!
Their super green skincare range contains natural ingredients such as acai, goji berry, liquorice extract and baobab. The nutrient dense product aids the promotion of healthy skin by helping to brighten and plump the skins surface as well as leave it feeling fresh with a hint of cranberry.
Detoxifying Facial Scrub
The scrub contains natural micro jojoba beads and ground bamboo to offer skin a gentle but deep polish to remove dirt and impurities. It isn’t too harsh on the skin but still offers a penetrative scrub that removes dead skin and helps to smooth the surface. The product contains a blend of kale, spirulina, chlorella and parsley to detox whilst pineapple, licorice and lime help promote a clear complexion. Although the scrub contains a rainbow of vitamins and minerals the burst of cranberry provides a more refreshing scent. I’ve been using the scrub on a daily basis and it’s perfect to give your skin a burst of energy in the morning, leaving it feeling detoxed and smooth.
Nutrient Rich Facial Moisturiser
Similar to the whole range, this product has a refreshing cranberry scent but offers a more nourishing set of antioxidants to moisturise the skin. With added ingredients such as goji berries, rosehip and avocado the facial moisturiser helps to promote a brighter, healthy looking complexion. My favourite benefit about this moisturiser is that it is crammed full of raw nutrients that my skin instantly drinks up upon application. It also leaves the surface of my skin incredibly smooth and fresh without any extra oils or grease, so it’s perfect for priming my skin before makeup.
Detoxifying Clay Masque
The product itself contains kale, spirulina, parsley and chlorella to offer a super green blend of ingredients that help to detox the skin and provide a healthy glow whilst avocado, baobab and goji berry aid in penetrating deep into the skin to nourish and hydrate. The clay has a thick texture that upon application spreads out evenly and comfortably sits on top of the skin. What I love most about this product is not only does it leave my skin feeling more plump but it’s also non-drying to it’s not only great for sensitive skin but it’s super (green) easy to remove!
Nourishing Chia Seed Oil
We’ve all heard the great benefits of popping a sprinkling of chia seeds in a smoothie, on some yoghurt or over your salad but this little bottle of oil reaps all the benefits for your skin. Containing a natural source of omega 3 and 6, antioxidants, phytonutrients (plant chemicals that benefit human health) and amino acids, chia seed oil is the richest botanical source of natural fatty acids. Providing a punch of energy boosting power, chia seed oil helps to prevent premature skin aging by speeding up the skin’s natural repair system. You can use the oil twice a day and it doesn’t leave a greasy feel however I prefer to use it as overnight face oil, simply because it can get to work on my skin overnight and I’m left with baby soft skin in the morning. It also comes with a pipette applicator so there's no product waste or messy skincare use!
