General awareness of the benefits of medicinal mushrooms (said to be the ‘next big thing’ in natural health) has certainly been growing over the last few years and recently we’ve seen customers increasingly interested in one particular mushroom called ‘Lion’s Mane’.

Sukin, a skincare brand from down under that could be big up here !

Sukin Only Natural

Sukin was launched in 2007 by a Melbourne based family on a mission to provide high quality, affordable and effective natural skin and hair care.  We’ve stocked some Sukin products for many years now but, in line with our new drive to support products which truly love the environment as well offering quality and value, we’ve just increased the range. As to quality I have no doubts, you don’t get to be Australia’s No. 1 selling natural skin and haircare range without being a brand that works, especially in a comparatively harsh environment like down under.

As for eco credentials Sukin have chosen to make that the core of their ethos from the start. As their website puts it : “Skincare that doesn’t cost the earth” is our tagline which reflects our affordable price positioning and also touches on Sukin’s natural formulations and earth friendly brand ethos, these elements have resonated well with our customers.

Beauty Products Old and New

Portrait of radiant girl with glowing skin

It’s been made by Weleda since 1926, it’s a favorite of Julia Roberts and Adele, it’s an unassuming, all purpose, skin loving ‘superbalm’, it doesn’t cost the earth and, if you haven’t tried it yet then maybe you should, it’s Weleda’s ‘Skin Food’. Skin Food is Weleda’s all purpose go to skin healing and moisturizing product for dry skin anywhere on the body. Face, hands, elbows, knees, you name it, this unassuming little green tube brings moisture, healing and solace and has done so for quite a while. It’s a truly iconic product at this stage having been made exactly as it is today for the last ninety years, yes ninety years!
So what’s in the tube?Weleda_Skin_Food image
Extract of pansy soothes flaky skin instantly, while chamomile calms red blemishes and calendula provides gentle healing support. Rosemary stimulates the circulation enhancing the skin’s regenerative processes, increasing its health from the inside as well as the outside. Sunflower and sweet almond oils gently and intensively moisturise and beeswax locks in your skin’s new found softness for long lasting gentle care.
Use Skin Food to protect against cold weather and central heating, bring it on plane journeys. Make it your first port of call when a rough, dry patch pops up. Ideal after you’ve done the dishes or before any work like gardening that’s hard on the hands. It’s essential to anyone working outside. As a powerful overnight treatment, apply liberally to hands, then cover with cotton gloves. In the morning hands will be soft and supple.
When something this good is used around the globe for the best part of a century you know it’s not just a trend.

And for something a little newer let’s turn our attention to a new addition to the Salcura Bioskin Skin Care range. Salcura has become our go to intensive treatment range for acne prone skin as well as for eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis.
dermaserum-daily-bioskinThe Company has just introduced a Dermaserum. At a fraction of the price of competing products this is designed for use on the delicate skin around the eyes, on the neck and décolletage and any area of redness or irritation that could benefit from deep, intensive moisturisation ensuring that, when those revitalized  skin cells make their way to the surface the skin is radiant, glowing and less prone to scaliness, blotchiness and irritation. The serum is designed for use under a moisturizer. It’s brand new on the shelves so we have no testimonials as yet but, given the high credentials of the rest of the Salcura Bioskin range, I have no doubt that it’ll be as loved by anyone looking for healthy, glowing skin.
