Over the years I’ve only tried a handful of products from Sukin so when I was given the opportunity to try something from the Super Greens range I accepted. Sukin is an Australian brand launched in 2007, offering affordable natural skincare with an impressive free from promise (no sodium lauryl sulphate, sodium laureth sulphate, synthetic fragrances, animal derivatives, harsh detergents, propylene glycol, artificial colours, triethanolamine, mineral oils, EDTA or parabens).
The Super Greens range includes a mask, scrub, serum, moisturiser and oil, all of which sound great but I chose the Nourishing Chia Seed Oil because it is free from essential oils. The blend of ingredients is quite interesting. Chia seed is the top ingredient but the “super green” name comes from the combination of kale, spirulina, parsley and chlorella. There is also hemp seed, avocado, olive and baobab. I’m certainly not going to make any claims about putting “super green” ingredients on to your skin but if you love them in your diet then why not go that extra step?
The other day I spotted a question asking how people use oils and I think many people are still hesitant or unsure how to use them. Once you figure out what ingredients are best for you, then I believe you should use them depending on your mood and how your skin feels. I will use on a morning and evening some days and just evenings on others. I use them alone or under moisturisers if my skin is feeling parched. I tend to use oils more often in winter than summer.
In comparison to others, I find Sukin Nourishing Chia Seed Oil feels light and my skin absorbs it quickly. It is recommended for all skin types so worth a try even if you have an opposite skin type to my own (which is dry & eczema prone). Since there are no essential oils in this serum I’d describe it as bland and neutral in scent (nothing too offensive on the nostrils). In all honesty this oil wouldn’t completely replace other favourites as I would miss my much loved rosehip. Saying that what I do think is totally awesome to see is authentic natural products on the high street as Sukin is now available at Holland & Barrett and Boots (it’s also widely available online).
Have you tried any Sukin products? Do you have a favourite?
