While natural beauty certainly isn’t a new concept, it is set to become a major beauty trend in 2018 as we wise up about what lies beneath our product labels and what these chemicals can do to our systems – not to mention the delicate, sensitive skin of our beautiful babes.
As Australia’s best-selling natural skincare range, Sukin is no newcomer to the natural beauty product party. In fact, it was launched in 2007 in Melbourne after identifying a gap in the market for affordable, sustainable, natural skincare that really, yes really, works!
Ten years on, and their tagline of ‘Skincare that doesn’t cost the Earth’ still holds true – no wonder this vegan, carbon neutral and 100% cruelty-free brand has become a darling of beauty bloggers as well as those of us who don’t have limitless beauty budgets (but do have kids who pump the heck out of any product that appears in the bathroom).
Speaking of budgets, we have to mention a Sukin product we’re a teensy bit in love with… Their Purely Ageless Hydration Elixir is a super-enriching face oil that costs just $24.95 and happens to have an identical scent, similar ingredients and work just as well as a $220 luxury brand face oil that shall remain nameless. Ha! Take that, beauty industry fat cats! Oh and it also has a deliciously light texture so can be worn under makeup or alone, day or night, and features antioxidant power players, vitamins A & E.
If you’re new to the natural skincare realm but would like to learn what might work for you, Sukin has embraced the ‘customised beauty’ movement and created their own Online Quiz to help you discover a regime that is tailored to your personal skincare needs. Pop over to their site and see what your skin needs.
But what about the babies, you say? You’ve probably heard that our skin is our largest organ and that whatever you apply to it travels into your blood stream. So when it comes to your bub’s skin, which is thinner and more sensitive, it’s even more important to use safe, gentle skincare products that nurture as well as they cleanse.
We love the soothing botanicals and oils in Sukin’s Baby Gentle Body Wash, $9.95, which comes with a soft fragrance or fragrance free. We love it so much that we are giving away a full-sized bottle to the first 100 customers who purchase one or more of our Baby Bowl Sets. Get in fast! Also, if you spend over $150, you will also get a gift from their women’s range. You’re welcome!
