Change is coming..

Hello everyone, just a little update with life.

As you may not know,  I have been successful in one of the positions i interviewed last month! I recieved my letter offer and handed in my resignation notice today! It’s official now!

Now I need to slog it out for the next fortnight and finish my secondment and then it’s uni, then straight to my new job. I couldn’t start earlier due to clashing with university and finishing with my secondment too.

It’s all happening now and also city2suf is around the corner too ;). Training well underway.

Anyways over and out!

Sukin skincare range

Hello there,

Today’s post will be on product reviews on the skin care range Sukin. In my past blogging experience, product reviews were a main topic but as of late, I haven’t written a product review in a long time and so decided to do one and bring product reviews into my blog! 🙂

Over the years, I’ve used a wide range of skincare products and the majority of them were either overpriced for their quality or the product/s were too strong.  Last year I came across sukin products at a local chemist warehouse and have been using their products ever since.

Note: This is a general review hence writing a detailed review will take too much space and reading time. These products that I’ve reviewed is from the signature skincare range.

Sukin Australian Natural Skincare

Founded in Melbourne, Australia in 2007, there was a gap skincare that was sustainable, affordable and vegan. Sukin is a brand that is committed to sustainability and affordability of skincare products and is naturally dervied, cruelty free and vegan.  This is what stood out compared to the previous products I’ve used in the past. My skin has been normal to dry with a few pimples in between.  After using sukin products, my face looks and feels better. Here are the products that I currently use:

1)Foaming facial cleanser / Cream cleanser

I’ve used both of these products and been satisfied with both. As most foam cleansers dry out my skin, I found that Sukin one doesn’t do that. The ingredients of chamomile, aloe vera with wheatgerm, green tea and witch hazel along with rose hip oil and primrose delivers this non-drying foam cleanser.

The cream cleanser helps retains moisture and is gentle on the skin. A mitxutre of Rosehip, Avocado, Sesame and Wheat Germ Oils , Aloe Vera, Cocoa Butter, Nettle and Horsetail help smoothe, cleanse, hydrate this skin.

The pump bottle design is easy to use and you can control the amount you use.

2) Hydrating facial mist

The best toner that doesn’t have alcohol, comes in a spray bottle design and actually hydrates! The combination of chamomile and rosewater helps to soothe, purify and cool skin. It also serves as a facial mist or a makeup spray (didn’t think about that use).

No need to use cotton balls.

3) Facial scrub

Gentle scrub combination of bamboo extract and walnut shell powder that exfolifates and removes dirt and impurities. It contains Aloe Vera and Chamomile to soothe te skin while Jojoba, Sesame and Rosehip Oils to lightly hydrate and leave the skin clean and smooth. Also it doesnt scratch the face.

4) Mositure rich Body cream

Thick moisturising creme with shea butter and cocoa moisturise your skin. This luxurious Moisture Rich Body Crème provides intense hydration.  Rosehip, Sesame and Borage Oils helps with skin revitalisation. Aloe Vera and Evening Primrose Oil help to soothe and calm, leaving a smooth, hydrated appearance. This creme doens’t leave a sticky feeling.

5) Facial Daily cream / Night time cream:

Both of these cremes contain gentle ingredients that soothe and moiturise the skin. The daily creme provides enough for a hot summer day but with winter, it doesn’t provide enoug moisture. The best is to combine rose-hip oil with the daily moisturiser. The night cream serves it’s purpose at night but can be used during those cold winter days.

6) Micellar cleansing water (makeup removal):

The best make-up remover to date. Obviously it’s alcohol free, contains cucumber, chamomile and rosewater to soothe calm and remove makeup. Skin feel clean, calm and refreshed.

7) Rose hip oil:

Multipurpose oil and can be mixed with moisturisers to give creams an ultimate boost. Can also be used in hair as well.

There are also other ranges of sukin such as baby skincare, sensitive, supergreens, oil balancing, aging skin and dermaskin as well. Haven’t tried those ranges yet so can’t comment.

You can find more information on their website: https://sukinorganics.com/.  In terms of stockists stores like priceline and chemist warehouse sells these products. The stockist range can be found on the website as well.

Anyways until next time,

Lydia

I’ve been MIA.

Reason being is I haven’t had anything much to write about. I’ve had a hectic month in June hence not really blogging much :).  Mainy from going to several interviews but in the end of being knocked back, especially one that was related to my study field :(. Recently, a secondement came up and have already completed one week there.  The good thing is that the setting is related to what I am currently studying :). A potential position will be adverstied where I am seconded to right now in the upcoming weeks so I am keeping an eye out.  Of course, i’ll also keep an eye out of other opportunities as they arise 🙂

It’s now July and it’s the homestretch of the second half of the year! Currently I sit on university break and the semester offically begins in two weeks but my first class doesn’t start until August. I will be taking two subjects form this point on but still maintaining part time status.

I also have my fun runs around the corner with city2surf in August and Blackmores in September. I’ve increased my runs to twice a week which means adusting my schedule (more likely bodyweight coach on rotation) and still keeping gym coach as it provides the neccessary strength.

Anways, time to survive the coldest winter in years!

See you in the next post
