As someone who has suffered with hormonal acne for as long as I can remember, skincare for me can make a huge difference in the appearance and texture of my skin, especially when I get an aggressive breakout.
I have used Sukin for the last couple of years, testing out various different products to see which are best for my skin, and I feel like I have finally found a combination that really works for me!

- Sensitive cleansing lotion £7.95 for 125ml
- Sensitive facial moisturiser £7.95 for 125ml
Sensitive Calming Night Cream
This has got to be my favourite product out of everything I’ve tried by Sukin. Its thick consistency means you only have to use the smallest amount, and every night I use it I wake up with beautifully hydrated, plump skin. I definitely notice a difference when I skip using it for a night! It’s a little pricier than the other products like the facial moisturiser, but I find it lasts me much longer, Ive had this tub for around 3 months now and only just used half the pot!
Sensitive Cleansing Lotion
For a long time I had been using the Foaming facial cleanser, but I find that it dries my skin out a little too much and as I have oily skin it then goes into overdrive producing even more oil, not ideal. So I decided to switch to the sensitive cleansing lotion, since I already knew I loved the night cream from the same range. It was strange to go from a gel cleanser to a cream based one, as I was so used to that squeaky clean face feel you get from a gel cleanser, but the cream leaves my face perfectly soft and supple, and is so gentle it doesn’t irritate any of my breakouts which is a common problem for me with most cleansers!
Sensitive Facial Moisturiser
This is the only product out of the range which doesn’t blow me away, but I only think it’s because I love the night cream so much. It works well as my daily morning moisturiser, and is a perfect base under my every day makeup where I don’t use a primer! It’s nice and lightweight and doesn’t give your skin that claggy feel that other moisturisers can.
Overall, Sukin have quickly become my favourite skincare brand. They’re affordable, natural and have good ethics at the core of the company. You can purchase Sukin products from Boots, Holland and Barrett and the Sukin website itself.
Had you tried any of the Sukin Skincare ranges? I’d love to know your thoughts and favourite products to try out! I’m eyeing up a few of their masks for my next purchase.
