Sample of the Week: Suki Face Exfoliate Foaming Cleanser

I'm here today with my second SOTW post. This week I tried out the Suki Face Exfoliate Foaming Cleanser that I received in a Birchbox quite some time ago. Because my face is so unfortunately ridiculously dry, I've become obsessed with exfoliating. I try to make any attempts I can to get rid of the roughness and patchiness on my face. Needless to say, this sample was perfect for me.



The Suki Face Exfoliate Foaming Cleanser is a vegan lemongrass extract/natural sugar scrub that is made to brighten, tone, smooth wrinkles, eliminate blemishes, and improve collagen production. It has a delicious citrus scent to it that is especially fantastic to wake up to during a morning shower. The exfoliating sugars are just the right size, and the formula is amazing. Once the sugars dissolve, you're left with an amazing foaming cleanser. 

This product has left my skin feeling smooth and soft, and it looks better too. I can't make any claims about the reduction of wrinkles or blemishes because I don't have any to start, but it really helped diminish the redness and rough appearance of my extremely sensitive skin. The only complaint I have is that the full sized product costs $32.95, which is about twenty two dollars more than what I'd normally spend on a scrub. But because its on Birchbox, I'm heavily debating on cashing in my points to redeem this. I don't know how I'll live without it!

Do you have any sensitive skin approved facial exfoliating scrub recommendations?

    1. I know what you mean. I'm still on the fence on whether or not I want to splurge!

  2. This sounds like a lovely scrub and defiantly worth investing in. I also have super sensitive skin and I really like using simple's 'kind to skin smoothing facial scrub' which is more affordable.

    1. I'll need to check that out next time I run to the store! I use a Simple moisturizer right now, and I quite like it. Maybe I'll have the same luck with the scrub.

  3. Hm...Although I have oily Skin, I also enjoy exfoliating my face. A lot actually
    I'm currently using one the the Tea Tree Line from the Body Shop (it's the one with the white bits, not with the dark ones. The one with the dark ones way too gentle for my taste) and it's really amazing. I only need a tinny bit, that my face feels super exfoliated.
    I've also tried one from a British brand called T-zone. It had a more "gelly" feel, but I would feel my face nicely exfoliated after using it (it's amazing for shower)

    Now, if you want a really potent scrub, Ocean Salt is the thing. For some reason is super expensive in the US compared to the European price, but it's really amazing.
    Now, people also rave a lot about St.Ives scrub, I personally never tried it, but I know that it's a staple product for some people.

    I hope that I could help you anyway. Besides this I could only recommend Asian Brands.
    Please take care, have a nice day!*

  5. I also got this in a Birchbox awhile back, but I have yet to try it. My skin is extra sensitive and I'm super scared to try it. I'm currently using the Michael Todd Jojoba Charcoal scrub, I really love it!

    1. I was scared too at first because I was afraid it'd be really abrasive but it was quite lovely! I've been dying to get my hands on some Michael Todd products. I love their range and their packaging, but I've never tried anything from the line before.

  6. This sounds like a lovely scrub. Skincare can definitely get expensive; however, I find myself spending more on skincare than makeup lately. In terms of scrubs, I have a couple on hand but I love to use my Alpha H Gentle Daily Exfoliant for those days when I want to exfoliate, but don't want to aggravate my skin (as much!) xo Jess

    1. I'm the complete opposite. I always put off buying skincare because a makeup product catches my eye more!

  9. Great review! I think if I had sensitive skin I'd steer clear of scrubs in favour of chemical exfoliants! xx
