Hi there! Today’s post is about Sukin’s Moisture Restoring Night Cream. I’ve been using this night cream since late May, so the review is actually overdue! Before we get to the review, let me tell you a little about the brand.
Sukin is an Australian company. They specialise in “skin care that doesn’t cost the earth”. Their products are carbon-neutral, vegan and cruelty-free. In addition, Sukin products don’t contain SLS, SLES, synthetic fragrances, animal derivatives, harsh detergents, propylene glycol, artificial colours, triethanolamine, mineral oils, EDTA or parabens. Now onto the review! 🙂
Sukin’s Moisture Restoring Night Cream is quite rich. It feels good on my skin and it moisturises very well. At the moment I don’t have any dry patches on my face which is something I don’t get to experience often – although equal credit goes to Superdrug’s hyaluronic acid face mist.
However, it isn’t the most suitable face cream for people with problem skin. I’ve noticed that this cream seems to clog up my pores a little. Because of this I’m using this cream in conjuction with a clarifying serum or with a glycolic overnight peel – with great results!
All in all, I think this night cream is really good, and I would recommend it. However, because of all the natural ingredients in this cream, I would recommend you do a patch test before you use the cream on your face. Sukin recommends patch testing before use as well. I think that’s reasonable!
So whilst I like this cream, I’m not 100% happy. This cream has a shelf life of only six months – that’s because it doesn’t contain any synthetic preservatives. However, the face cream jar is huge and 120ml is a lot of product! I’ve been using this cream rather liberally on my face and neck, and I’m using this face cream on my husband’s face as well. However, after 10 weeks of daily use, the cream is nowhere near half-empty. I think it would be best if Sukin reduced the size of the product – to make sure people manage to finish it before it goes off.
I found Sukin’s Moisture Restoring Night Cream at TK Maxx where I paid £8 for it. Boots sells a number of Sukin products as well!
Have you tried this face cream or any other Sukin product? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading! 🙂
PS: A special thanks to Jodi who got me interested in Sukin products.
I hadn’t heard of these before seeing them in TK Maxx so interesting to read a review of one. It is annoying when companies do large tubs for products that go off quickly. I’ve normally ended up using them beyond that and see how it goes but some just don’t last and it always feels like a waste of money.
Thanks for stopping by!
I don’t really pay attention to the use by, but this product doesn’t contain any preservatives, so it can’t defend itself from germs and bacteria and who knows what else… So with this product I have to pay attention. If the fragrance or the formula changes one bit, it’s bye-bye.

I’ve heard a lot of good things about Sukin, but like you said the lack of preservatives and short shelf life is what puts me off, I’d never get through that size of tub in 6 months! Normally I don’t pay that much attention to brands use by, but I think when it comes to more natural products it’s likely to see some kind of faster deterioration!
Your comment sums up my exact thoughts.
This sounds good – probably more of a winter time moisturizer for my combination skin type. But only 6 month expiry is pretty crazy, especially such a huge jar. Maybe you can use up on your feet?! 😆
I just started using Sukin’s antioxidant eye serum and it’s really good! It’s not heavy at all and absorbs in well. And, the expiry is not until late 2018.

If I won’t empty the jar within the six months, I might use the product on my elbows. Normally I just ignore the use within guidelines (preservatives are awsome!) but this moisturiser can’t defend itself from germs and bacteria, so I’ll be extra cautious…
I was thinking about buying the eye serum. But I went for the face serum instead. Good to hear you like the eye serum. It goes back on my list! 🙂

The jar is huge! That is why I ended up giving it to my mom to finish.
I agree with Stashy, the eye serum is really good!
