Review: Sukin Purifying Facial Masque

Sukin Purifying Facial Masque 100ml
( Price unavailable as I bought this as a promo pack )

This was an unexpected buy because this comes in free when I bought the Sukin Night Cream for my sister. ( By the way, my sis suffers from acute ezema and apparently, only this night cream can restore her severely dehydrated skin without causing any allergies to her face ) Pretty interesting, isn't it?

I have heard several good reviews of Sukin for quite a while now but not sure why I have yet to try their products. When I got hold of this masque, I am unsure if I should try this since I am pretty happy with my yoghurt mask now and I know, I can't risk having any breakouts again seeing my previous experience HERE.

Without shelving this product and wasting it, the best person to use this will be my: husband. Actually, I was pretty surprised that he offered to use this product, with conditions that I do the mask for him! Tsk! My poor husband has been using up 'unloved' items that deemed unsuitable for me so I think this is a fair trade.

Now, let's see if this product works for him shall we....

His Experience

My husband's skin type is oily, with large pores and post acne scars. His only skincare routine is just washing his face at night with a cleanser. Upon occasional pestering, he would 'allow' me to use toner and oil for his face. A simple man, with simple routines.

This is my husband's first masque experience for him and to ensure his comfort, I would try to explain to him how masque would feel like and if any way he feels uncomfortable, he would have to let me know.

This masque is pretty unsual. The Koalin clay is like 'terracotta' in colour, strong brownish-red and the masque is thick and paste-like. Despite the colour, the scent is refreshing and comforting. My husband commented that he like the smell. Score #1.

I use a brush to apply on his face and it glides easily. I applied a rather semi-thick coat as I find that his face absorbs the masque rather rapidly. It is stated to leave the masque on for 15 minutes to allow deep penetration to skin. However, the masque begin to dry up after 10 minutes but my husband says that his face is still comfortable, no tugging feeling.

When we rinse it off, he commented that the masque do leave a oily film on his face. I believe it is normal because of the high content of rosehip and other oils in the masque. I then followed up by wiping his face using a warm washcloth. He mentioned that his skin feels very comfortable, soft and smooth too. Score #2. I end the whole regime with toner and rosehip oil for him.

He continued using this masque twice a week for 2 months and he is asking for more now! Score #3 He told me he sees improvements on his face and he noticed that his pores are not so obvious and is less prone to breakouts. His face do looked more even toned, refreshed and surprisingly, not as oily as before. He even recommended me to try this masque on his dad!


My husband is pretty pleased with this masque and happy to see improvements on his skin. When at times when I was too busy to do the mask for him, he would remind me otherwise to do for him. ( Now, that is saying something right? ) I won't be giving any ratings at this moment because the product is used by my husband anyway. I will be giving ratings only when I try this masque myself...maybe sometime soon.:D

This item was purchased by me for my personal purposes. This review is based on my honest and personal experience with this product and is not influenced by any parties.
