Narynda Skincare Face & Body Scrub - Review*

'Discover a radiant, youthful complexion!'

Narynda Skincare believes that skin requires natural oils to regenerate, remain youthful and to stay nourished. All of their products are made with a high quantity of oils and butters to replace the moisture that our skin loses every day due to factors like the environment, lifestyle or stress. Their products aim to balance the skin by firming and hydrating without blocking pores. Whether you suffer from dry, oily, combination or problem skin, the products are designed to give your skin what it needs. Most importantly, all of their products are made to be versatile – so you can use however much you like and wherever on the body it suits you depending on your preferences, skin type and lifestyle. Narynda Skincare is proud to create a range that is hardworking yet affordable, giving us the happy skin we deserve.

A gentle yet hardworking scrub that evens out skin tone leaving it soft, blemish-free and glowing. This Face & Body Scrub consists of two types of exfoliating textures; the slightly larger Bamboo Grains remove tired-looking skin and the smaller Rice Grounds polish the skin’s surface leaving it smooth and radiant. The Red clay draws out impurities, toxins and excess oil/sebum helping to unblock pores thereby reducing breakouts. Whilst the varied sized granules buff away dead skin cells and stimulate circulation in the skin leaving you with a lasting healthy freshness. 

I really love using a face scrub, which means I dislike not having one around. I was looking for a new brand of face scrub to use when I came across this cute looking Narynda Skincare Face & Body Scrub from I decided to give it a go and now I'm really glad that I did! The squeezy tube is a great size for me and I love how easy the scrub is to squeeze out. I really like that this scrub is a face and body scrub, usually, body scrubs are too thick and oily for the face but this is perfect for me. I've been using the product in circular movements on each section of my face to make sure I'm getting a good scrub all over. I find that the grains are a great size for me and my skin feels super soft after using the scrub. Overall I'm super pleased with this Narynda Skincare Face & Body Scrub and I'll be on the lookout for other products by them!

After washing my hair with the shampoo and then conditioner, unfortunately, my hair felt like it needed to be washed again. My hair felt a little greasy and even looked limp, I'm not sure if this happened due to the products being clarifying. I quite like the natural subtle scent that both of the products have and I really like the design of the bottles, a pump shampoo and conditioner are a lot easier to use in a shower.

Sukin Energising Coffee & Coconut Body Scrub & Purifying Body Scrub - Review*

'Skincare that doesn't cost the earth...'

Sukin continues to maintain a strong stance on the environment and sustainability and has been certified as 100% carbon neutral, cruelty-free, and vegan for many years now, with all formulations being biodegradable and grey water safe in addition. Today, Sukin is Australia’s best selling natural skin care brand, with a portfolio across face, body and hair, and continuing to grow year on year. Sukin’s skin care is still Australian made and owned, and is run by a dedicated young team, focused on remaining close to the ground and providing customers with the best natural skin care on the market.

Our indulgent Energising Body Scrub utilises aromatic Coffee Beans and Coconut Shell to exfoliate and revitalise the skin. Aloe Vera, Coconut, Jojoba and Sesame Seed Oils provide lasting hydration to soften and smooth skin. Added Rosehip and Vitamin E provides antioxidants to promote a healthy glow. Skin is left feeling energised, and polished.

Our Purifying Body Scrub gently exfoliates skin with microparticles of Bamboo Extracts and Ground Walnut Shells. Skin is left feeling polished and hydrated with a blend of Rosehip, Jojoba and Sesame Oils. A combination of Aloe Vera, Chamomile and Vitamin E soothes and promotes refreshed, healthy-looking skin. Skin is left feeling soft, purified and smooth. 

Both of these Sukin scrubs are a treat to use in the shower. I love that they're both simple and easy to apply with or without water, so you don't even need to be in water to use them! I also find them super easy to wash off and my skin is left feeling really soft after use. I really enjoy using the scrubs before and after I have waxed, as they really exfoliate the skin well.
