FACE: Sukin Super Greens Detoxifying Facial Scrub

When your face scrub smells like sweeties… In particular ‘Love Hearts‘ what are you going to do? 
Well obviously my dear I’m going to use it on my face and try very very hard not to eat it! #thestruggleisreal

I’m a fan of Sukin products have been for  a while, I especially love their foaming cleansers which I have written about here.  During an inpromptu visit to Holland and Barratt I find this little gem…

To put it simply, this is a really nice facial scrub, not just because of the scent!  It is sulphate and paraben free – which I know, I know nearly ever product these days claims to be “free” of this and that …because it’s just cool right? however after using this product my face doesn’t feel stripped of natural oils and feels really refreshed.

It’s a beady little scrub (jojoba beads and ground bamboo to be exact), whilst I know facial scrubs can be harsh on the skin if over used, I only use mine once a week.  The beads do appear to help lift the invisible layer of weekly grime from my skin.

Why is it called ‘super greens’ well this facial scrub is packed full of my faves – Kale, Sprulina and Parsley.  Yep that’s right the same stuff you’d add to a green smoothie!! 

Here’s the info on the back of the product packaging:


Everything about this products makes me happy – the scent, the packaging, the colour of the packaging, the ingredients.  Well done Sukin your on to a winner with this one!

FACE | Super Facialist By Una Brennan Skin Renew Cleansing Oil

During the winter months I switched up my skin care routine and introduced a new skin care ‘friend’ into the fold.  

This new ‘friend’ being the Super Facialist by Una Brennan, Vitamin C+ Skin Renew Cleansing Oil.

  

This stuff is seriously a miracle in a bottle! 

Cleansing my face with an oil means I’m not stripping my skin of its natural oils and also whilst using this cleansing oil it does a good job of almost melting the makeup, making it so much easier to remove but gentle at the same time. The cleansing oil contains olive oil, grape seed oil and rosehip oil together with rosemary, vitamin e and cucumber oil. 

I use it with an already damp face straight out of the shower, and gently work a pea sized amount of the oil into my face with circular motions, I do my eye area last so as not to spread eye makeup all over my face. 

Then with a warm damp face cloth or muslin cloth, I remove the cleanser with gentle sweeping motions. Once done my face feels fresh and smooth.

The scent of the oil is a combination of sweet/citrus and not too over powering.

Now this stuff lasts AGES! I have been using it day and night for well over a month and at around £10 per bottle it is well worth the ‘cleanse per pound’.  It’s was definitely worth a repurchase I have picked up another bottle to see me through Spring and definitely worth sharing how great I think it is!

What products are you using to nurture your skin just lately? Feel free to share!
