Started Off Great, now I'm unable to use it
I bought this restoring night cream with the hope that it wouldn't make my skin get dry & flaky. Boy, was I wrong! Within a few weeks of using it regularly, I noticed dry, flaky patches developing on my cheeks, between my eyebrows & forehead. I ceased using it immediately & went back to using the other night moisturiser I felt comfortable using. Within a few nights, my skin was back to normal. I won't be using this product from Sukin ever again after the damage it caused.
I don't recommend this product for anyone who has dry, sensitive skin.

Light, lovely smell and made my skin feel amazing after using it for a few days. Absolutely love this product especially after a day outside in Australian heat. Highly recommended

Didn’t work for me
I purchased the line for dry and sensitive skin, although the products have a nice afterfeel, putting them on left my skin with a little burning sensation and gave me pimples on my cheeks and forehead. I stopped using them and the redness and pimples are gone.

I've used this night moisturiser for about a month now on my sensitive dry skin, I'm in my late 50s and was looking for a change. Initially I thought I'd found a great replacement but after continued use my skin started to break out really badly and looked very irratated and red. I wouldn't recommend this moisturiser if you have sensitive skin. I'm going back to Dr Spiller Vitamin A night cream.

I am happy with this product
I love using this product as a part of my night time skin care routine. It does not feel greasy at all and it takes no time to be absorbed!

Caused Terrible Headache
My sister bought me this product to try as it touted using all natural ingredients. I enjoy the smell of it, which reminds me of lemon cheesecake or lemon mousse. However, I began experiencing terrible headaches on waking in the morning, as if I were horribly hungover. Thought nothing of it, until my sister, who has bad reactions to perfumes and soaps and many things, said she thought it was giving her headaches! I realised that my headaches had ceased when I'd temporarily stopped using the night cream. So as a test, I used it last night, and ...sure enough....the very next morning I awoke with an extremely bad headache, as if I'd been on a bender all night long! This is very strange, because as a rule I've never reacted badly to any product, be it perfumes, creams, lotions or soaps. Apart from the headaches, I do enjoy the way if left my skin feeling in the morning, although I could feel it wash off in the shower next day. Unfortunately, I shall have to discontinue using this product because of the severe nature of the headaches it causes me.

Great night cream
I've been using this on and off for the past few years, I always find my skin to be moisturised and healthy looking the morning after using, a little goes a long way. I have combination skin and haven't had any problems, you can get this product half price on sale at Chemist Warehouse pretty often. Also Australian brand, ethical and eco friendly choice. Packaging is a amber glass jar which feels luxurious and can be up-cycled to a nice little tub.

I admit this is my first night cream. Using the facial moisturiser for a bit now and enjoying the feeling on my skin I stuck with Sukin and am so far not disappointed. Like the moisturiser the skin absorbs it really well, (a little longer than the moisturiser) and skin is left with a nice hydrated feeling, not greasy, and you only need a small amount to cover the facial area. Again, good brand for those looking for ethical options. Aussie made & owned

Not ideal for sensitive skin
Very disappointed with this product. I have somewhat sensitive skin and this product within 3 days of use made me break out. My skin became oily in some areas, dry and flaky in others, irritated and itchy. As soon as I went back to my regular chemist brand moisturiser everything started to calm down and go back to normal. I wouldn't recommend this product it you're acne prone and or have sensitive dry skin.

My skin reacted badly to this
My skin didnt react well to this creme. Became sore, red and flaky. Looked like I have eczema .. which I don't. Was the only product I was using. Skin improved when I stopped using creme.

Will be buying again
I chop and change skin care a fair bit, but I have finished a tub of this and will be getting it again 100%
I have always had issues with oily skin and this has helped (after using it for weeks) plumped up my skin and leveled out excess oil production - unexpected bonus.
Love the smell and the way my face feels after I put it on, and when I wake up in the morning.

Smells like sea salt spa treatment
I love the smell it's gorgeous, also the cream is really balmy and leaves the skin feeling cushioned and soft with no sticky or greasy feel . Great value for money

Useless even after using for 3 weeks!
I purchased your Restorative Night Cream from Chemist Warehouse 3 weeks ago and have been using in every night, also in the morning! Because I have a wrinkle on my left cheek, and it has not improved it, even though it says it will work in 14 days!

Settled down out-of-control eczema immediately
Review for Skin Calming Night Cream not the moisturizing one (my mistake). Have had a bad run with the eczema on my face, not able to get it under control with hydrocortisone cream and antihistamines. This calmed everything down immediately.

Screwed my skin over
I bought this because there was a sale at chemist warehouse. I assumed my skin would be fine because it said it was for all skin types but boy was I wrong. Over the past few weeks, my usually flawless skin was covered in red patches and small pimples all over cheeks. My eyelid skin thinned out and darkened and I kept being constantly questioned by others if I have been sleeping enough or if i was sick.....,, but anyways don't get this if your skin type is dry or you'll probably suffer the same fate as I did.

Better than most
It’s nice and thick and smells nice. Like all moisturisers though, it clogs my pores and makes me break out. Oh well, It’s not wasted. I use it around my eyes, neck and lips. Works fantastically there. I use the hydrating mist spray for the rest of my face.

I love this moisturizer
I work in air conditioned environments day and evening, and live in a basement apartment which gets VERY dry. This has taken a huge toll on my skin. I picked up this night cream and I actually have been using it morning and night. It applies well, and a little goes a long way. I have noticed a visible difference in my skin's moisture... and I have been pairing this product with the Sukin Oil Balancing + Charcoal Pore Refining Facial Scrub and the two products have been amazing. I can't say this product will work the same for everyone, but I LOV...E it and will continue to use these items. I have NOT had any breakouts as a result of its use. I HAVE noticed a difference in the appearance of fine lines under/around the eyes, improvement in my skins moisture and appearance. I don't apply too much, so makeup seems to apply over it well when I use it in the daytime. I definitely recommend this product
Okay not too revolutionary
I was a Clinique Moisteriser person for past 3 year and was looking for affordable alternative in market. Since I have a dry skin, i cannot compromise and guess diffcult to satisfy. I have been using sukin moisture day/ night and I feel nice and soft throughout. It obivously does not change the texture of my skin but I have not experienced any allergies, oilyness or any sideeffect. I guess this is a good alternative. Happy with the cream texture and smell. I will buy this again.
I hope I NEVER make this mistake again . .!
My whole face broke out into an ugly rash after sleeping with this stuff on my face all night. I have NEVER had this sort of reaction from any other night moisturizer. Horrific rash now from ear to ear that looks like acne. At first I thought it was an allergic reaction but after consulting with my GP, he said it's more than likely the heavy chemical content of the cream. as I have no known allergies . . .except unnatural chemicals
Questions & Answers
Howdy - I bought the sukin skincare washing liquids and found that they weren't good for my dermatitis / are the sukin creams more likely to help better than the washes?
Sukin have a Dermasukin range which is specifically for people with sensitive skin, maybe check some reviews on these products as there may be people with similar skin that may give you some feedback :)
Hi Brian, apologies for the late response. (This notification made it to my junk mail).....
I agree re trying the durma range. I love sukin's body wash but alternate it with Natural Instincts & Natures Organics brands to help with price & managing specials.
Another night cream I use and love is Australian Organic night cream that I slather on over the same branded rose hip oil. I hope you get a good solution. I've noticed an improvement after the rose hip oil and sukin's combo!
