    I would like to try out Santaverde Light Aloe Vera Cream as I have sensitive and rosacea skin. A light moisturiser is definitely for me. I hope it will make a perfect base for make-up and help to soothe and take the redness out of my cheeks after exposure to the sun.

    I had liked their facebook page & retweet your tweet for this giveaway.

    Currently I’m looking into products with brightening properties after the “summer” season. I’m trying out Biotherm White D-Tox Intense Brightening Cream which I received as a gift set after answering their survey, but it made my skin peel quite badly on the temples and nose. This is not the first time it happened to me but I’m quite disappointed as I’ve tried various whitening products and wasted those money just because my skin cannot tolerate the strength of the products.

    I’m not eliminating whitening products out of my list yet, as I believe that I haven’t found the product that is suitable for me. The product I would like to try would be the Suki Targeted Bio-Brightening Face Serum, which is made up of mostly soothing ingredients and it also address my acne problem as it contains white willow bark extract.

    Although the price tag is hefty at 150SGD, it’s almost triple the cost per ml compared to kiehl’s midnight recovery concentrate that I’m using. I’m willing to shell out the money to pay for the serum and use it up within the 12months rather than being left with half the serum after 12 months of usage (which I’m facing this problems with my kiehl’s serum).

    I’ve liked their FB page and retweeted your tweet for this giveaway.

  3. Karin Yong says:

    The product that caught my eye is Balm Balm Fragrance Free Face Balm as not only can I use it for myself, I can also share with my son. Especially after my son swimming lesson, I can apply this face balm not only on his face and all over his body to keep him moisturised after his lesson. This is good as he does not like things that is fragrance.

  4. Sara Khong says:

    I am currently looking for a serum, so I checked out Pure Tincture’s range. I’m quite put off with the price (I’ve never used serum and to spend on a bomb on something I’ve never tried before is rather difficult).

    I proceed to browse the website to see if there’s anything that pique my interest and I found Ecoperfume. I’ve always been looking for a natural perfume to replace my Burberry perfume. When reading about it, I was quite happy to see that phthalates, paraben and other additives are not added. But I’m not very convinced with the word ‘fragrance’ and thought I’ll give it a pass.

    After browsing through more products, I finally found something that I would buy: Suki Tinted Active Moisturiser SPF 15. I am very impressed with the quality ingredients used such as organic grapeseed oil, shea butter and fragrance made from pure steam-distilled essential oil! It’s also helps that it bagged an award and is at the moment sold out.

    As I don’t like to put on makeup, I really like that this product is tinted, moisturizes the face and has SPF.

  5. Audris says:

    Santaverde’s a label I’ve not seen in Germany before and I’d like to try the Santaverde Aloe Vera Blossom Nectar Ampoules (

    Now I’ve had aloe vera plants before but none of them ever blossomed. Aloe vera blossom’s an ingredient I’ve not spotted in any of my current and past skincare products. Also, I rather fancy how it comes in an ampoule form and to be used like how pricey ampoules are used in facial salons, along with the Made in Germany assurance.

    Work’s been hectic lately and my skin is dull and lacking lustre. Since the Santaverde Aloe Vera Blossom Nectar ampoule is catered especially for stressed und tired skin, mine fits the letter to a T! ?

  6. Isadelia Vienna says:

    Did you watch the news tonight? Zinc Oxide in cosmetics may lead to cancer. Those nanoparticles. Help?

  7. sesame says:

    I commented about it on my Facebook page. It’s nothing alarming and they said it’s preliminary. Anyway, avoid nano zinc oxide if you’re worried. Plenty of choices out there.

  8. melmok says:

    i don’t think i can leave without the Suki Exfoliating Foaming Cleanser ever again. I would love to purchase from Pure Tincture if only the currency conversion is not so high. ?

  9. Tammi Cherise Tan says:

    Whoa, where to start? This is the first time I have ever visited Pure Tincture and I was blown away by the immense range of organic products available. I have to be honest, I’m not exactly part of the “ALL NATURAL BEAUTY PRODUCTS!!!” cheerleading crowd, but this website has my full attention.

    After taking some time to browse through the products (and enduring a little more than just a few “ooo, this looks fascinating, I should try it out one day” moments), I have come up with a list of items that I would absolutely love to have on my beauty and bathroom counters:

    1) suki’s Tinted Active Moisturizer: I have never used tinted moisturizer before but I think it would be great for me to start because it seems like a quick, effortless and yet effective way to get a near-flawless complexion while reaping a few skincare benefits as well (an all-in-one deal, what’s not to love?).

    2) 100% Pure Fruit Pigmented Lip Glaze Watermelon: My lips tend to get quite chapped AND I’m in danger of looking like the walking undead if I let my pucker go sans colour (why, oh WHY do I not possess a kisser of God-given scarlet!?). This product seems to promise to get the lip-nourishing job done, and this Watermelon shade is so cute!

    3) Vive Sana Solar to Polar Ultra SPF 40: First of all, its sassy name is enough to make me want to own a tube (call me easily amused, but “Solar to Polar”? Such ingenuity). Wordplay fetish aside, I’ve recently learned about the importance of using sunscreen on a daily basis, especially from a young age. And with the unmentionably excruciating sun-drenched weather here in Singapore? This is a must-have.

    4) MADARA EYES Firming Eye Contouring Gel: I’m only in my early 20s but I’m already starting to feel paranoid about the condition of the skin around my peepers (*sobs*).

    This is probably just skimming the surface. The products on the website look awesome. I’m so glad I came across this post.

    (Oh, and by the way, just to let you know, I have “Liked” Pure Tincture’s Facebook page, your Facebook page, and I will tweet about this generous giveaway soon. *prances off to comment on every other “Green Beauty” post because I am THAT keen on scoring the covetable box of goddess-worthy goodness*)

  10. BT says:

    I just finished my natural body butter last week and thought to get a natural option again. Madara Body Nourishing Cream caught my eyes and the price is affordable. Concerning the international shipping fee, I think the purchase would be well-worth for bigger amount order only. I have also read the reviews of Suki Exfoliating Foaming Cleanser in MUA and learnt Pure Tincture more from their website, blog and FB page. The founder is very passionate about natural and I love the Christmas Cherry Picks (“v) most.

  11. nami says:

    wow..i just came to know about this…i want these beautiful babies for my mom..she has dull skin and sun spots so i am eyeing the suki Intensive Nourishing Cream with Brightening Complex…her skin resembles a patch of land in a i always look out out for organic and pure products for her…i keep on searching products for her that can heal her dryness particularly in winters because a change of season bound to play havoc with it

  12. Ct says:

    I will part my money for suki Pure facial moisture – balancing. The word reprogramming of our skin caught my eyes. Hydration should be the most important part of our skincare routine before firming and brightening. Having a well hydrated skin, will actually prevent our complexion from looking dull and patchy. But too much of it, will cause clog. So the word is balance!

  13. dentists Warsaw IN says:

    These look awesome!
    thanks for the “to get $10 off purchase” on facebook tip!

  14. claire says:

    I’ve yet to go down to their store at raffles place. Their prices can be a lil steep for me. But oh well with quality comes a high price. I quite like their Balm Balm Hibiscus Face Mask. Brown rice, hibiscus and rose geranium for a very nice exfoliating treat which helps to deep cleanse the skin. Would be great if I could try that! and it’s not too pricey too. The Pure Lochside Organic Orange Cleansing Oil looks so tempting too! I love anything with a citrus smell. The carrier oils which are jojoba, sesame, almond and vit e would be good for my skin too!

    I’ve liked their FB page. thanks for the $10 off tip! would help to save up on such a spending season.

  15. Renz says:

    I’m interested in the Suki Exfoliating Foaming Cleanser. I’m always on a lookout for a good exfoliating cleanser, it’s never too late to start on prevention of early aging, also being a mother of a toddler and mom-to-be 2nd time means I would need a product which would help maintain my skin, keeping them clogged free and clear when I do not have time to go for monthly or bi-weekly facials. Being a mother doesn’t mean that you have to give up on your looks, it just mean finding alternatives which works for you.

    btw, I had liked their FB page, and shared this giveaway on FB as well.

  16. Lil Khor says:

    Though we are in tropical country and there is generally no winter, it has always been dry in December month. I will “Balm Balm Tea Tree Lip Balm Tube” to deal with this problem.

  17. sos says:

    Hmm I have never tried any of their products but I would love to try their body moisturisers

  18. Carol says:

    I’ve been using Suki Exfoliating Foaming Cleanser for a year now and I like it a lot. While it exfoliates dead skin cells, it does not dry out my skin.
    After browsing through Pure Tincture website, the one product I would like to try most is 100% Pure Luminous Primer Vitamins Antioxidants with Resveratrol. Once in awhile I use mineral makeup. Prepping the skin before applying foundation is important because a primer can help even out complexion and prolong the wear of the foundation. I finally found an all natural primer. The primer is filled with antioxidants and vitamins in fruits. Another plus is that the brand 100% Pure only uses fruit and vegetables pigments rather than synthetic dyes.

    Another product I would like to try is the Soap & Paper Factory Solid Perfume Bella. I have never tried an all natural perfume that is not in liquid form. There are only 3 ingredients for the product- jojoba oil, beeswax, and fragrance free from parabens, dyes, and additives. The perfume is handmade and comes in a jar.

    I have liked their facebook page and tweeted this giveaway.

    Hi Sesame!
    I checked the pure tincture website and all look pretty nice. I wish there would be an online site like it in my country.
    From the brands they sell I’ve only tried the lip balms from balm balm. I purchased on a trip I made to the UK. The weather was very cold so it was a pretty helpful. I liked alot. About the other brands sounds all so good, I’ve heard about brands like madara and suki. I would really want to give them a try, specially the suki line for adult acne with aging, since I’ve been dealing with that problem on and off for a couple of years. It seems a liitle pricey for my budget, but since I’ve read good reviews on that I would be willing to try, and if it suites me well I wouldn’t mind spending more than I usually do.
    Also the makeup line looks very nice. I would like to try the 100% Pure Healthy Skin Foundation With Super Fruits SPF 20, the 100% Pure Healthy Flawless Skin Foundation Powder and the 100% Pure Fruit Pigmented Pot Rouge Blush, specially this last one since it’s very hard to find creamy blushes that won’t clogg pores. I’m not sure if this one can suit acne prone skin, but It would be nice if it’s suitable because creamy blush leaves very nice and natural finish!
    Great items and brands you are including in these giveaways!

  20. Lucia says:

    I wish we had Suki available where i live! And marie veronique, mukti… i can go on and on! It’s frustrating! I can’t even find organic, non-fat yogurt. ?

  21. Lucia says:

    I’m all about eyes now (aside from still searching for the perfect anti-aging night and day serum/cream for my oily, sensitive and acne prone skin), so i immediately checked the “eyes care” category on Pure tincture. And there i found the very popular and one of your favorite products, Snowberry eye serum. ? It’s one of the products I have been dreaming of owning one day, ever since i read your review on it. The Madara Eyes firming eye contouring gel and repair cream also caught my attention. But i don’t know if they’re as good as snowberry’s. Maybe you could do a review on these products in the future. ?

  22. aibicon says:

    so far I have tried some organic /chemical free cleanser, shampoos and conditioner, I have yet tried the Exfoliating Foaming Cleanser.

  23. Pollya says:

    If I’m going to part with my hard-earned money and get something from Pure Tincture, I would go for one of their sample packs, either the Acne/Oily skin one or the Normal/Combination skin one — unfortunately, they are both out of stock at the moment!! I’m a firm believer of trying samples first whenever possible, and the good thing about Pure Tincture is that they combine different brands in their sample packs, so the user doesn’t get to experience just one brand — cool!
    I also like the fact that they emphasise “non-comedogenic” in their philosophy cos that is a major requirement for me when I choose skincare products.
    And oh, their hampers gave me great ideas for what to give for Mother’s Day and when friends have newborn babies — wholesome and useful products! Thumbs up for this category!!

  24. Bebe Lee says:

    The product that caught my eye is Suki Bio C 10% Formula Face Serum Best Anti-Aging Serum for Sensitive skin as it will definitely make my skin firmer, smoother and wrinkles free. Also, it is the Bazaar Beauty Awards 2011 Winner.

    I have not purchased from Pure Tincture.

    I have liked Pure Tincture on Facebook Bebe Lee

  26. Jason says:

    nice website there.

  27. aibicon says:

    This cleanser will definitely keeps insects away from our face as they contain lemongrass=X Lemongrass also gives out a refreshing feel

  28. Corinna Foong says:

    I’m always interested in getting a cleanser that can exfoliate at the same time, but those that I’ve tried so far are not foaming. When I saw that Suki has this Exfoliating Foaming Cleanser, it really piqued my interest. It’s too bad that the Exfoliating Foaming Cleanser to-go is currently out of stock, otherwise I’d go get 1 to try it out before getting the full sized jar.
    I’ll probably try the Snowberry eye serum as I saw that it’s included as one of your daily care. I’m always looking out for a good eye serum as I’m starting to see some fine lines appearing.
    I’ve just liked Pure Tincture’s Facebook, and with the $10 of $50 min, I’d probably go get an item to try out.

  29. sherry says:

    I really want to try the “MADARA HAIR Nourish & Repair” shampoo and conditioner. I’ve always had short/medium length hair, and now that I have long hair, it’s becoming hard to maintain. My hair gets frizzy sometimes and the ends are very dry. The conditioner has won the award for best hair repair from Harper’s Bazaar so that was what caught my eye. Definitely wouldn’t mind giving it a try!

  30. N. says:

    Definetly the MADARA Nourish & Repair hair shampoo and conditioner . My hair is dry and definitely needs a little extra love and it seems promising. I also would love to try out the 100% Pure Fruit Pigmented Pot Rouge Blush Ballerina. Its such a beautiful color and I love Pot Rouges.

  31. Swati says:

    I had read sometime back about Suki on your site and as far as I remember, you had liked the product quite well though I don’t remember which product you talked about in particular but probably the one you had mentioned above!!! The name itself made me a little curious about the brand when I first came across it.
    suki brightening intensive masque looks amazing!!

  32. fiona says:

    i have uneven skin tone! i seriously think i need this!

  33. Issa says:

    I am so into brightening of the face since I am already getting old so I want to try the suki Targeted Bio-Brightening Face Serum. I love the fact that it brightens the face. And besides, I would like a littlew help in lessening the appearance of hyper-pigmentation on my skin.

  34. Rachel says:

    I would like to try the suki bio facial peel which cost sgd $150!

    I’m using their exfoliating cleanser and balancing toner which I love it!

  35. Kitty charmy says:

    I would love trying suki Intensive Brightening Masque !
    Ill need an effective soothing mask like this to sooth and rejuvenate my tired skin and hope it works magic on my beauty woes such as fine lines and dull and dry skin with spots. Best of all, i am very happy to know that my it even tone my skin without the bleaching which damages my skin.

  36. Caitie says:

    The Sukicolor Luscious Lips Berry Cream Trio is definitely tempting ? It looks really pretty and I’ve always heard good things about the brand!

  37. Jeni says:

    The Suki Exfoliating Foaming Cleanser with organic lemongrass & natural sugar sounds amazing!

  38. RedScorpio says:

    Ah, they carry solid perfumes. I would just love to try them all, and judging by the names I would want to own at least half of them.

    PS Have you seen the Nostalgia Happy Days soap? It’s one of the prettiest, cutest, well-designed product packaging I have ever seen!

  39. Lena says:

    I’ll have to be honest; The exfoliating foaming cleanser here seems to be the best buy to me. I’m not big on cleansers, as they sometimes seem to do worse for my skin. Their products are a bit on the pricey side, which I can’t afford.
    However all the ingredients sound so luminous. Should I have success with this one, I would then further consider their other products .

  40. Theresa says:

    I heard from my sister that we can make our own exfolitator using sugar and rice powder… I saw that those two ingredients are listed first two (i.e. largest quantity) as Sukin Exfolitator Foaming Cleanser, I thought it’d be too much work to make my own exfolitator, so would really love to try this product!

  41. Diane says:

    Ive never trued suki or ordered from pure tincture.
    Thiugh they carry the 100% pure range, didnt know they did…would love to try the madara rabge too

  42. Kim says:

    The Suki Tinted Active Moisturiser SPF15 for me sounds most tempting. Besides the active ingredient of titanium oxide to block the rays, it also has grape seed oil and jojoba seed oil which will help with anti-aging and fight free radicals.
    I will consider Pure Tincture when I’m re-stocking on my skincare products next. You can bet Pure Tincture is a must-visit on my next trip to Singapore!

  43. DJ says:

    The one item that I will be most willing and tempted to buy is the suki Pure Facial Moisture – Balancing as I have not been able to find a moisturiser suitable for my sensitive skin that is able to hydrate and protect my skin as will as soothe it. The Suki Balancing Day Lotion promises to be greaseless and light, which will be wonderful in our humid weather~! In addition, it is able to hydrate and treat the underlying cause of acne & blemishing and help to reduce all the redness around my oilier T-zones!

  44. Nadine Saubert says:

    OK– the owner of one of the blogs I frequent ( RAVES about suki products. I am not sure if they are availible in my country (USA) but I’d love to try the vitamin C serum on my oily/combo skin. I keep reading about the amazing benefits about vitamin C and it has caught my interest!

  45. EcoBeauty says:

    If my current MVO lightening duo doesn’t work, I’ll definitely try Suki Targeted Bio-Brightening Face Serum next–anyway, the amount of pocket damage is almost the same, lol. Am so really very keen to find my HG skin brightening serum/product that’ll help me permanently manage my sallow skin tone.

    Next product on my list would be the Suki Intensive Brightening Masque. Same reason as above. I’m desperate and I’ve spent a lot on lasers/IPL before so I think I’ve become fearless when it comes to spending on brightening products.

    I’m currently very happy with Skin Apotheke’s Rejuvenating Eye Creme–but if ever I’ll be tempted to try another eye product, it’ll be Suki Eye Repair Balm. My under eye area sure needs a bit of plumping.

    Next would be Suki Tinted Moisturizer –wondering how it’ll compare to the MVO Anti-Aging Serum which I’m currently still loving but am still not so happy with the tint. No tint/Extra Light Tint makes me look too pale while Light Tint makes me quite dark. Only problem is that it seems Suki only has 2 tints! So I might face the same problem again.

  46. EcoBeauty says:

    Oh, Reserveage Collagen Booster also caught my eye–I believe in beauty supplements so am always keen to find out about new nutricosmetic brands, especially those that are deemed more natural alternatives.

  47. Apple says:

    Hi Viva Woman,

    I would buy Suki Best Seller’s Nourishing Kit for Christmas! A complete set with exfoliating foaming cleanser, nourishing toner and intensive nourishing cream. I think my friend will be over-thrilled to receive the gift for Christmas! Oops still much Christmas shopping to do. Noted this product down!

    I have $10 off because I read this page! Happy.
