Sukin Sensitive Cleansing Lotion – Review and Ingredients Explained


This is an Australian product that you can find in most pharmacies (in Aus). I have been applying a small amount, not even a whole pump, of the lotion to my face either after my morning shower or when I wash off makeup at night and I can honestly say… I’m impressed, big time!

I use a flannel /washlet and warm water to first wash my face, then use a squirt of lotion (Usually half a squirt if I haven’t been wearing makeup or a full pump to wash off make-up) I massage it into my skin, rubbing all over my nose, cheeks, eyes, chin and forehead and then rise off with the washlet. Your skin goes through a lot and you should rub lotion in gently, love your skin and take good care around your eyes. The texture is slightly clammy but beautifully smooth and has a soft vanilla fragrance. Until now I had been using a Ble Lagoon foaming facial cleanser, or just warm water to wash my face. I couldn’t get a sore red patch to go away near my nose that had stuck around since a cold in January. Not only has the sore red skin finally been soothed but it has completely gone and my face feels amazing. As a cleanser it is fantastic and my skin feels great, plus it removes most of my makeup with ease and any black smudges of mascara that remain are easy to remove afterwards. I hardly use a face moisturiser anymore and have had great skin since using Sukin.
