Suki Exfoliate Foaming Cleanser

Recently my skin has been clearing up really well (finally!) after a stressful couple of months of bad breakouts. I’m now at the glorious dry skin stage, where my latest acne flare-ups have subsided, leaving areas of really dry and flaky skin (ew). To combat this post-breakout problem, I’ve been testing out the Suki Exfoliate Foaming Cleanser* which has been amazing at bringing a glow back to my complexion after my acne ordeal!


First of all the smell of this cleanser is so good!! It has a delicate fresh, zingy scent with gingery lemongrass and lavender – a nice aroma to wake up to when cleansing in the morning. The texture is lovely too, as it foams into a little lather once blended into wet skin, making it feel very gentle. It is incredibly effective at buffing away any dead dry skin cells and I loved how my skin looked so healthy and glowy afterwards! I’ve noticed too, this cleasner is great to prep my skin before applying make-up, so if you have a date night coming up this might be a nice exfoliating cleanser to use.

The best thing about this product is that it foams (as it says on the tin!). So you can lather it up in your hands before applying – and the harshness of the sugar scrubbing your delicate skin is taken away completely. It smoothes over the skin really nicely, without any scratching or abrasiveness like a regular sugar-scrub would feel, and it applies like a good cleansing face wash.

Suitability for Sensitive Skin

During my horrible breakouts I had big red patches of acne along my forehead, temples and a little around my chin. I did test this cleanser on these affected areas when the acne was quite bad though I soon realised this was not a good idea! Skin is incredibly sensitive during the peak of its flare-up so I wouldn’t recommend using these kind of face wash products even if they are considered fairly gentle as this one. Otherwise you will make it more red and more sore!

Once the acne has decided to calm down after its tantrum on my face, and has almost cleared up, this is the stage to whip this Suki Cleanser out. My skin is pretty sensitive and can get aggravated easily so I’m wary of products that will leave me with red skin. Trying this though I had no problems and my skin was left feeling very polished and clean. I like that it’s sugar and rice-based as I also use raw honey to exfoliate and wash my face too, and the sugar crystals in that seem to be kinder to my skin than salt scrubs or kernel grounds.

The jar recommends using 2-3 times per week, though as it’s so effective I only use once a week. The tiniest amount goes such a long way too! I have the 30ml pot (£10.95) which I can see lasting me about 6+ months, but it also comes in a larger 120ml pot (£32.95) which would literally last ages.

  • Great post Sophie! I love exfoliators but I’ve never used a foaming one, definitely a product I want to get my hands on

    • Thanks Angie 🙂 yes this is the first foaming exfoliator I’ve tried! Let me know if you try it too x

  • Petra Kravos

    I do suffer from breakouts but I find it’s the worst at THAT time of the month. This exfoliator sounds great and I will keep it in mind for next time I need one. I would just add that acne can be caused by several different things and yes, stress is one of them. From my experience, my skin doesn’t like cheese and too much processed sugar. You also need to see whether you are getting enough omega oils. You may find my latest post useful actually -http://www.behealthynow.co.uk/nutrition/viridian-clear-skin-omega-oil-review/

    • Hey Petra, yes definitely give it a try! Yep been struggling with acne for about 4 years now it fluctuates really badly but it’s got calmer since switching to green beauty and skincare, as well as trying to watch my diet though I’ve always been pretty healthy! Thanks will read your blog post 🙂 x

      • Petra Kravos

        It’s good to hear that natural beauty products have been helping you with your acne but yes, diet is important as well. Do you follow Amy from Get That Glow? If you don’t, you will love her blog as it’s all about acne! http://www.getthatglow.co.uk/

        • Yep I noticed dairy aggravates my acne somewhat, and sugary things. But I have a ‘naturally’ bad imbalance of hormones anyway so it’s mainly that I think. Supplements help so much! And tea 🙂 Yes I know Amy and have followed her blog for the past few months – she’s pretty awesome!! x

  • I have sensitive skin so I will probably give this cleanser a miss – I love thew Una Brennan rose scrub for my sensitive skin x


    • Hello Heather, I haven’t heard of the Una Brennan scrub before, it sounds lovely though – I adore anything with roses in it! I’d say the term ‘cleanser’ has been a bit misused for this product as it is more of an exfoliating scrub. If your skin is super sensitive and reacts badly to essential oils then yeh I don’t think this would be the best choice. I only use it sparingly myself! But it is so good for really stubborn dryness x x

  • This does sound lovely, but I don’t think my sensitive skin would agree!

    • Hi Annabel, it’s not very harsh at all – in fact it’s got some really great organic ingredients in there that should be quite kind to sensitive skin (oats, lavender and camomile for example). The sugar dissolves quite well too when working into a foam so making it less abrasive than other scrubs that have larger irregular shaped exfoliating particles. I wouldn’t use it everyday as a normal cleanser but it’s really good to clear dry skin every once in a while 🙂 x

  • I really like this! When I started using it I was getting out way too much, now I use a smaller amount and it works a lot better for me!

    • It’s lovely isn’t it 🙂 Haha yeh I soon realised that too… only a teeny bit is needed which makes it pretty cost effective! x

  • This sounds really good! Seems like good value for money, too. xxx
