Finding the perfect bio-eco-green moisturizer is not an easy task and for me it is something I have been trying to achieve for a long time. The story began about 15 years ago, when I read the first articles on “green” topics and I was impressed by how much chemistry there is in standard cosmetics. I rushed to try product after product and I must admit that despite the definitely positive effect of biocosmetics on my skin, expressed in the reduction of irritation and rashes, I had a lot of failures. Of course, if you buy the most expensive and praised organic moisturizer, surely everything will be amazing, except for the fact that you may have to stay hungry for a week to compensate for its high price. That’s the way it is in this industry, praised super ingredients and certificates for which sometimes you get the desired quality against a salty price, but sometimes not. At the other end of the tunnel is the option to use something from the low-end organic cosmetics, but it usually turns out with the effect of hand cream.
Well, I did not give up looking for and trying products, and all the time I had various favorites that were absolutely good and acceptable, but one sunny summer day in December, three years ago, I came across my moisturizer – Sukin. Yes, summer in December, Australia, almost round-the-clock flights, jetlag, and a not so small jar of 120 ml. saved me. Two jars actually – day and night.
What is Sukin and why they are the best
Sukin is an Australian natural cosmetics brand. As they say “Just ingredients from nature that are good for you, your wallet, and the environment too”. They are vegan and cruelty-free, carbon neutral and say ‘no’ to a long list of synthetic chemicals.
To this day, the face moisturizers of this brand remain the best for my skin that I have ever tried, and in the past three years I have alternated with other brands, but I went back to Sukin. Wonderful light texture, gentle feeling on the skin, brilliant effect, amazing aroma, and last but not least 120 ml. at a very good price. And this is important, because have you ever bought an expensive moisturizer in a package of 15 ml. and put very little on your skin so it doesn’t run out in a day or two? It doesn’t have much effect, does it? Well, with Sukin I use a good amount without worries and it gives visible results.
Here are my favorite moisturizers that really make my skin smooth, radiant and fragrant just wonderful. I have tried each one personally and they are all wonderful:

From where to order
Finally, I can say that of course you can order any cream from the original website of the brand, but I personally prefer to always buy them from Iherb, because of the good daily promotions and discounts, the many products, the possibility of worldwide delivery from single site at a low price.
