While I was browsing at Watsons Gurney Plaza Penang, I came across a little stand with Sukin Organic products and Renew Skincare products on it. Interesting! I’d been reading about organic products coming to Watsons but haven’t seen it for myself.
Despite not being quite into organic skincare, I’ve tried the Sukin Foaming Facial Cleanser and the Purifying Shampoo and Conditioner from when they were only available in Singapore. I’ve also tried the Body Wash which is alright but I decided the whole line wasn’t for me.
Renew Skin Care however, was new to me. I was interested in getting a hydrating face mist (purely because of the smell of roses) and saw they were available in both brands. Renew Skin Care cost RM49.90 for 100ml while Sukin Organics cost RM34.90 or so for 125ml. There were testers for both items and I tested both – they felt and smelt the same.
Sukin and Renew Skin Care Hydrating Face Mist look the same
It was puzzling, so I read the labels and found that they contained almost exactly the same ingredients for the hydrating mist. The other thing I noticed was that both companies shared the same address in Australia. When I checked the website, the address for Sukin Organics was different from that on the label and Renew Skin Care did not have any mailing address on the site.
