I’ve been spending most of this winter with rough cheeks, and rose hip oil just isn’t quite enough to keep my skin moisturised overnight. I picked up this bottle of Sukin Facial Moisturiser from Priceline on a whim, and amazingly my whim paid off!
This cream comes in a hygienic pump bottle, and has a very “wet” texture. A little goes a very long way with this cream – half a pump is enough to shiny up my whole face, but surprisingly it sinks very nicely into the skin after a few minutes. I use a full pump on my face and neck before bed, and my skin is still plump and moisturised the next day. The ingredients list boasts softening shea butter and anti-irritant aloe vera, as well as rosehip, jojoba, sesame and avocado oils and horsetail, burdock and nettle extracts. It’s also paraben-free, for those of you who are concerned.
The scent of this cream is quite strong – it smells citrusy and fresh, thanks to a bunch of essential oils. I think this might make it too irritating for some sensitive skin, but I’ve had no problems with it. Sukin also carry a Sensitive Facial Moisturiser. Annoyingly though, it appears to be a bit too rich for daily use on my T-zone, although it’s been amazing on the cheeks. So I’m still on my never-ending search for my HG night cream, but Sukin Facial Moisturiser, I’m glad to say, is still one of the best drugstore bargains I’ve found this year.
