The super green blend of detoxifying antioxidants and vitamins in this clay-based masque, infused with kale, spirulina, chlorella and parsley, promote a clean and healthy complexion that will restore glow to dull areas of skin, usually found around the middle section of the face.

We Say:

Sukin are an Australian brand and say they are ‘skincare that doesn’t cost the earth’. This is a super important part of our beauty buying these days. If everyone took just a small bit of responsibility surely we can make the world a better place to quote Michael Jackson!

This masque felt amazing as I plunged my clean finger tips in – I sometimes use a brush but this time opted for fingers – it was velvety smooth and cool and slipped over my face and neck smoothly and evenly. As per any face masque if you don’t cleanse the skin first you are wasting your time and effort so remember that.

I left it on for 20 mins while I read a book on my kindle but I could have done anything as the masque does not set hard and restrict facial expression so chatting on the phone is an option…

When I looked in the mirror to start removing I could see that my skin had absorbed over 70 percent of it – Hello Dry Winter Skin anyone?? All that blowing the heater in the car over the last few weeks had done a number on the hydration and this was a wake up call to switch over to a heavier moisturiser before I turned into a Mummy.

I was actually quite happy about the absorption as the main ingredients are all amazing things.
Rosehip has a very high Vitamin C content which aids collagen formation. It also has an essential fatty acids and Vitamin A – retinoic acid which smooths out wrinkles by hydration and also slows the ageing process.
Avocado oil is fabulous containing Vitamins A and K and B C E and biotin which helps with hair strength. It reduces inflammation while its anti-Eoxidants detoxify the skin making it supple and plump. Fab!!
Baobab is a fruit grown in Africa that is also high in Vitamin C and boosts that all important collagen production.

My skin was glowing and smooth and not red at all which can happen with traditional clay masques so you could use this before going out. I was very impressed with the results and will be searching out the rest of the range next time I am in Boots or trawling through Amazon. Although it is more expensive on Amazon so do shop around.

Effectiveness:

A resounding 5 stars here as my skin still feels velvety three days later.

Packaging:

A very subdued thoughtful green with nice fonts. You could re-use the plastic pot for your own home made recipes or similar. Its tough to be planet responsible and still have to use plastic.

Value for Money:

This would come out less than 50p a masque so excellent value for all those high end ingredients.
