Sukin Super Greens - Review.

These green products hit the shelves of Australian beauty suppliers earlier this year but I've only recently collected the whole (small) range and had the pleasure of using them every morning and night! I'm going to do a quick review on each product and how I personally use them because they are some of the best drugstore products I have ever used!

The collection differs from the regular Sukin products due to the active 'green' ingredients such as parsley and spirulina. Sukin offer most of their body/face products in a sensitive option, too and 'DermaSukin' is also available for specific skin issues or those looking to target problems such as acne. I have tried many of the normal Sukin products before and had no great results and had a very bad reaction to their rosehip oil. Since reacting to this product, I steered clear of my Sukin products for a few months and invested in more expensive skincare as my skin has been particularly bad for about six months now but I decided to trial these! I now own all four 'Super Greens'products and myself and my partner use them everyday!

Nutrient Rich Facial Moisturiser.
Similar to the regular daily moisturiser by Sukin, this cream soaks in fast and doesn't leave skin feeling heavy, clogged or sticky! I use this every morning after toning and every night after using the Facial Recovery Serum and it leaves my face with a healthy glow and feeling fresh. The smell is amazing, just like the majority of Sukin products. I don't feel the need to use a night time moisturiser when I use this. My skin is normal - Not particularly dry nor oily with occasional t-zone breakouts.

Facial Recovery Serum.
As mentioned above, I use this every night following my cleansing routine just before bed. I use two squirts and that is plenty for my whole face. It smells amazing, soaks in quickly and is that extra layer of moisture before going to sleep. My moisturiser also soaks in better when I use this. As the products mention, they are designed to give the skin a healthy glow and I find it does that!

Detoxifying Clay Masque.
I wasn't sure if this would be worth it as I had seen photos and it looked quite drying on the skin, which is what I wanted to avoid with regular breakouts but I am so glad I picked it up! I began using this once a week, as with most masks, but found I can now use it about three times a week without it negatively affecting my skin. I use this before I get in the shower by dampening my skin and rubbing it all over my face. I leave it for about ten minutes before washing it off in the shower and massaging it in like a cleanser. It does not dry my skin but leaves it incredibly smooth! My boyfriend also uses this now and loves it!

Detoxifying Facial Scrub.
For about two years, my facial cleanser have been from Lush and contain gentle (natural) exfoliants so I held off buying this for a while. After having great results from my first initial 'Super Greens' products (the serum and mask) I bought this! I use it once or twice a week in the shower in place of my daily cleanser and it is in no way harsh or stripping. My skin is left soft and a great smooth base if I am to continue on with makeup.

If you live in Australia, do not go past Sukin products or think they will be ineffective due to their cheap pricing ($10-$15 for most products) as they have saved my skin from it's worst stage. I also use Grown Alchemist's Balancing Toner and Gentle Facial Cleanser but I think I can attribute most of my success to Sukin! All Sukin products are cruelty free/vegan and that makes me so happy!

It's too hard for me to try and keep up more than one blog so I thought I would let my Blogger followers know that I have obviously given up on posting on here! I use my Tumblr more than this blog! On my Tumblr I will be posting pictures, photos, blogs and film reviews! Even if you don't have Tumblr and want to see whats going on, just save it to your favourites bar and check up on it every few days! That would be amazing :) Thankyou!

you so cute.

double fur!

I baked amazing cookies for Benj the other day! I got about two because he doesn't like sharing them (he loves them too much ehe) and my family chow them down... Also finished his Batman softy (photos up when I get the chance to take some!). Work work work all week, went out the other night to the Lloyds 'Snow Party', which was horrible. But got to spend the day in bed watching Ben play Ghostbusters on the PS3! I now have two days off, yaaaaay! Might get a new ear piercing, watch lots of movies, bake some more, try and exercise for once, draw lots, finish reading my current comic aand sleep!

Studio Ghibli's new film 'Arrietty' looks adorable! It is based on the story of The Borrowers, which is also a live action film, about a family of little people who dwell within a house of regular humans. They sneak out at night and make sure that they are unseen and 'borrow' items such as sugar cubes, pegs, matches and anything that will help them survive. Although a young 'borrower', Arrietty, is too curious and one day seen by the young boy who lives in the house. A lovely, and typical Studio Ghibli, friendship is formed and beautiful Ghibli style animals and characters are met. I can't waaaaaaaait!

1am is not the most ideal time to finish work after spending the entire day before at work then going out. Had a very good night at Skinny Geans last night! Beer and friends is lovely. Although the places we went after, not my favourite. Also discovered that my favourite band that played last night, Sun, will be playing a gig with DIG? (Ben's band) in a few weeks which will be dandy.  Wish I could have stayed at the gig. Now it's home time with Star Trek: Next Gen, painting my nails and a good sleep! And I finks tomorrow will be a lovely day :)

I fall asleep to this song almost every night, among many other similar and just as wonderful songs. Puts a smile on my face.

It has been three weeks since I last posted and I am sorry to anyone that bothers to check! I have been working late nights most nights for the last couple of weeks and basically get home and sleep as soon as my head hits the pillow! I have been working, decided to finally go to Japan (later in the year), made some Spock dolls and have them up for sale at a local store 'The Rabbit Hole' which is really exciting! Also watched Star Trek: The Animated series, finished X-Files, read quite a few Batman comics (just getting into i and they're so good!), watched alot of movies and consumed alot of sushi actually. Nothing overly exciting except for the Spock Dolls, so if you live in Launceston and want one, go to the Rabbit Hole and buy one, or two! I will soon be making keyring sized characters aswell, other than Star Trek ones and a Batman softy for a special someone! :D
