Mask Monday's - Suki Suki Naturals
From now on, on Mondays, I will share with you a face, hair or body mask review. Masking is my favourite step in my skincare routine. I see this as a beautiful ritual of self-love and me-time. I don't need a special occasion to do a face mask, no no. To me it's the ultimate me-time treat. As an introvert, yes, I actually AM an introvert, I spend a lot of time recharging, reflecting and tapping into myself. Throw a face mask in the mix and I am happy as Harry. (Ok it's actually 'Happy as Larry, but Harry is actually next level happy right now after the Royal wedding, right?)
They caught my eye, firstly, because of their BOSS packaging and branding. Now I have and always will be the biggest fan of beautiful, considered branding. And Suki Suki scores 15/10 here.
Secondly, the ingredients used are pure perfection. Good, organic, natural ingredients. Their range, at this point, is small and I really appreciate that. Rather do a few products and do them really well than creating a whole bunch that are mediocre.
I gave their Gentle Exfoliating Mask, Açai, a try and these are the things I love and reasons why I would recommend you get your hands on it pronto:
- The brand is local. Now I love a lot of international brands and I enjoy exploring brands from around the globe BUT, when a local brand gets it right, I will sing their praise!
- They are Cruelty-free :)
- Ingredients: French pink clay, kaolin clay, Açai powder (a Brazilian berry superfood-berry rich in antioxidants (which means it naturally protects the skin from environmental ageing elements. Turmetic powder is anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial which gives gentle love to acne prone or misbehaving skin.
- The smell- a beautiful, subtle Jasmine scent (not overpowering tho). To me, this mask in it's powdered form, smells like a childhood adventure.
- Results- I honestly can see the results when using this mask. Look at the healthy shine below. Even tho the mask contains absorbing ingredients such as kaolin or pink clay, it's not drying.
I can highly recommend the Açai mask and even though this product was kindly gifted to me by the brand, I will purchase it again with my own money.
Next up I want to try their Hydrating Facial Mist. The ingredients are similar to the Herbivore Rose Hibiscus Hydrating Face Mist and it would be nice to have a local alternative. They also seem to be developing some hair care products which entice me.
Yay for South African women making beautiful skincare! I salute you!
