Suki Moisture Rich Cleansing Lotion - review


This is the last Suki product I have left to review and unfortunately it's my least favourite of the bunch. 

I'm a little annoyed with myself because when I was picking out this product from the Violet Box shop (where I bought my Suki stuff before VB closed operations), I was choosing between this and another Suki cleanser that I loved, and I went for this one because it's designed for dry skin. I'm wishing now that I'd picked the other one since that's a far better product and I'm now stuck with a full size of this one to get through.

Hoh well. Can't win 'em all I guess!

Suki claims/product details:
  • A moisture-rich, extra gentle and milky cleanser for skin types that demand extra hydration 
  • Matches skin’s chemistry and pH for deep derma penetration, creating balance for all skin types
  • Also contains our calming and protective SSS colloidal oat™ for sensitive or ultra-dry skin
  • Helps taut, dry and dull skintone
  • Targets dry patches, enlarged pores, end-of-day toxic and environmental stressors, build-up and clogged pores, signs of premature ageing, lines and wrinkles
  • Cleanses dry, sensitive and mature skin while creating a natural moisture base you can feel for a lasting, radiant, dewy complexion
  • RRP $39.95 AUD for 120ml, but do shop around


It's interesting to see in the product claims that this product is meant to create a moisture base that you can feel, because it does do this and it's the main thing I don't like about it: it leaves a film on the face that I need to remove with another, better cleanser, because my skin doesn't feel clean after using this product and it's left crying out for something else.

It's a pale yellow milky lotion that smells gently of citrus and feels nice on the skin. It does an ok job of removing makeup and grime, but I would rely on this product as my only cleanser because this doesn't do the job well enough. It does remove some grime, but certainly not all of it.

On top of that, it leaves the film I mentioned so this product never leaves my skin feeling clean, meaning I've been forcing myself to use this cleanser so I can review it and get through the bottle, and I wouldn't be reaching for it otherwise because it just doesn't do a good-enough job.

I've had a look at the online reviews of this product, and while some people do love it, a lot of people have the same complaints I do: this doesn't cleanse well and it leaves your skin feeling waxy so you need to scrub the product off with something else.

Kind of defeats the purpose, doesn't it - using a cleanser that needs to be cleansed off?

Anyway, every brand is allowed one dud product and this is Suki's in my opinion. I've liked every other product I've tried from the brand - some I've even loved - but this one just doesn't cut it.

Foo! Back to my HG Suki Exfoliate Foaming Cleanser...
