Sometimes, my face is in need of a good scrub. I don’t need sandpaper but an occasional exfoliation does some serious good to get rid of old skin cells that seem to gunk up my face and make me feel like a walking dust mop.

For a while now, I’ve been trying to review products that are made with better ingredients but I also try to be realistic because I know all of our pockets are tight. Money doesn’t exactly fall off trees!

Enter Sukin Revitalizing Facial Scrub. I reviewed one of their products a while ago and they had a good price point with decent ingredients so I thought I’d test out their facial scrub.

Let’s just say I’m turning into a real Sukin fan.


Product Review: What ingredients are in the Sukin Revitalizing Facial Scrub?

thingsthatwedo.com - sukin revitalizing facial scrubHere’s a list of the ingredients you’ll find in the Sukin Revitalizing Facial Scrub: Aqua, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Sesamum Indicum (Sesame) Seed Oil, Cetearyl Alcohol, Cetyl Alcohol, Ceteareth-20, Bambusa Arundinacea Powder (Bamboo), Juglans Regia (Walnut) Shell Powder, Glycerin, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Rosa Canina Fruit Oil (Rose Hip), Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract (Chamomile), Arctium Lappa (Burdock) Extract, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Phenoxyethanol, Benzyl Alcohol, Citrus Tangerina (Tangerine) Peel Oil, Citrus Nobilis (Mandarin Orange) Peel Oil, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil, Vanillin, Vanilla Planifolia Extract, Linalool,* Limonene.*

What does this all mean?

thingsthatwedo.com - sukin revitalizing facial scrubI visited their Sukin website and read the packaging carefully and learned that the Sukin Revitalizing Facial Scrub contains little bits of bamboo extract and ground walnut shells to help remove all the grit and grime that lands on your face. The Sukin Revitalizing Facial Scrub also contains aloe vera and chamomile along with goodies like rose hip, jojoba, and sesame.

Translation: while the ingredient list may sound cumbersome and scary, it’s actually quite natural. Notice that Sukin Revitalizing Facial Scrub has no sodium lauryl sulphates, no funny fake fragrance, no artificial colours, there are no mineral oils, no parabens, and the list of ‘NO’ continues.

OH…and it’s also affordable. The Sukin Revitalizing Facial Scrub is actually comparable in price to the scary stuff you’d buy at the store.


Product Review: does Sukin Revitalizing Facial Scrub work?

Take a good look at the image and you’ll see little walnut bits in the Sukin Revitalizing Facial Scrub. The facial scrub is thick and rich but it’s also really creamy and doesn’t feel harsh. You don’t any bubbles. It’s like exfoliating your face with cream that has a bit of grit to it. It washes off easily enough and I don’t feel any leftover residue.

thingsthatwedo.com - sukin revitalizing facial scrubAt the time of this review, I’ve been using the Sukin Revitalizing Facial Scrub for at least 2 weeks and so far so good. My sensitive skin absolutely loves the Sukin Revitalizing Facial Scrub. There’s been no redness, no irritation, nothing. After using the Sukin Revitalizing Facial Scrub, my face feels clean but moisturized. It doesn’t feel dry at all. I generally use the Sukin Revitalizing Facial Scrub about twice a week and it’s worked like a charm. It seems to fit right in with my regular face washing regimen.


Verdict:

Would I buy the Sukin Revitalizing Facial Scrub again?

Yes, I would. It’s made with quality ingredients and has a great price point that’s comparable with those other chemically laden imposters. It comes in a 125mL tube which is a decent size and lasts quite a while. I’ve barely made a dent and I’ve used it for 2 weeks.

For me, this is a no brainer. Sukin Revitalizing Facial Scrub wins!
