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.

Even for those who don’t suffer from major acne break-outs, this is a good little wonder product for all skin types. It feels so luxurious when using and if anything you get a lovely little lift from the aromatherapy of the oils in the cleanser!
