Ever since I discovered how much better a cream cleanser was for my skin, as opposed to a gel or foaming type cleanser, I’ve always been on the lookout for new (and affordable!) cream cleanser options.
I’d tried the normal Sukin Cream Cleanser in the past, and throughly enjoyed using it. However, when I saw that there was a version with a pink label, I was curious.
I picked up the Sukin Rosehip Nourishing Cream Cleanser a little while ago, finished it recently, then remembered I had to share how much I enjoyed using it! 😀
Sukin Rosehip Nourishing Cream Cleanser – for Dry & Distressed Skin types
Sukin is a range of fairly affordable natural skincare from Australia that is found in pharmacies, so it comes in at a reasonably affordable price tag. As much as I enjoy splurging on skincare, I enjoy saving too, when I can!
Their usual range has a cream and green label, but there is a range targeted at dry & distressed skin types, which comes enriched with rosehip oil, kakadu plum, pomegranate and quandong. These key ingredients combat dehydration, soothe redness due to dry skin and reduces the appearance of fine lines.
If you have drier skin or dry skin caused by your skin being sensitive, then this would be the range more suited to you, and this is what interested me most, because I have dry skin (but not sensitive).
Comfortable cream that rinses clean easily
I love the packaging, which is a slim pump bottle. You don’t need a full pump (at least I don’t!) so about half a pump of product will do for a morning cleanse, for me.
The cream is a light cream that spreads easily on the skin. I usually pump it onto damp hands, and then apply it to dry skin. It glides on easily, and feels lovely when you massage it in.
Most importantly, it rinses off easily and cleanly with just water. There is no need for a flannel, nor a need to scrub at your skin. It takes a few rinses, but it will rinse off nicely leaving your skin feeling lovely and clean.
From memory, the normal version of the Sukin Cream Cleanser does the same, but seems to feel a little lighter in terms of texture.
Gentle and Cleans skin without stripping
Importantly, the Sukin Rosehip Nourishing Cream Cleanser cleans skin without stripping your skin of its natural oils. So, you will not experience squeaky clean skin (and no cleanser ever should leave your skin feeling that way!) but it will feel clean.
My skin is plumped and comfortable after washing. Not tight. Not dry. There is no residue on my skin, yet it feels like I’ve already had a layer of nourishing product on it. It feels comfortable, and that is so important when you have sensitive and dry skin.
I love how gentle it is, yet how effective. I’ve tried using it as a second cleanse in the evening, and it works well enough too for that purpose.
I however use it only in the morning, as I like a very gentle cleanse in the morning. While I know that some people choose not to wash their faces in the morning, I am of the view that you should, if only to start your day right, and to ensure that your skincare is applied on a nice, clean canvas. But it is ultimately your preference, if you choose not to wash your face in the morning 🙂

While it is a fairly basic cream cleanser, I like that it is easy to use, feels good on my skin, and is kind on my wallet. If you want to transition to a cream cleanser, you could do worse than to try the Sukin Rosehip Nourishing Cream Cleanser, especially if you have dry skin.
I’ve had many people with dry skin tell me that they don’t like using cream cleansers, as it’s hard to rinse off, or it leaves a residue (which I believe is more psychological than the fact) but it is worth noting that if you have sensitive skin, or skin that tends to be dry, using a gel or a foaming cleanser can be far more stripping than your skin should be. That might mean you irritate it further, or need more products to counteract this extra damage.
Try switching to a cream cleanser and see how it works for you. The day I switched to one, I never looked back, and my skin thanks me for it every single day 😀 I’m now curious to try the other products in the Sukin Rosehip range, which I will one day 🙂
IN A NUTSHELL
The Sukin Rosehip Nourishing Cream Cleanser is a natural based product with rosehip oil as a key ingredient. It is a fairly light cream texture that is easy to massage over the face, and more importantly, easy to rinse off with just water. My skin is comfortable after rinsing and it isn’t tight, dry nor uncomfortable at all. So important when you have sensitive, dry or irritated skin. A perfect cleanser for a gentle morning cleanse, and importantly also, it’s affordable.
