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.
Purchased in December 2019.
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
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.
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!
