Simple | Skincare

The Simple skincare brand is by far my favourite. Its full of 'Vital Vitamins' and 'Skin Loving Nutrients' and has zero perfume or colours which they say is so it 'wont upset your skin' which is highly reassuring, as I've mentioned in my Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish review that I have very very sensitive skin. Simple is actually the only skincare brand that I've tried that doesn't cause my skin to react :)

  • Kind to Skin: Refreshing Facial Wash Gel. This gel contains Pro-Vitamin B5 which just means it restores, softens and smoothes your skin - and lets be honest, who doesn't want that?! It might just be me, but this cleanser makes me feel very awake and wide-eyed so I prefer to use this in the morning and my Neutrogena Visibly Clear 2-in-1 in the evenings.

  • Kind to Skin: Cleansing Facial Wipes. I actually use these before the Refreshing Facial Wash Gel as these wipes also work as a makeup remover, even removing waterproof mascara which can be hell on earth if you just want to crawl into bed after a long day, so these things are time savers. Again, these wipes have Pro-Vitamin B5  but they also contain Vitamin E, I'm sure a lot of you have heard/read about Vitamin E or even used a Vitamin E product before as the BodyShop has a whole collection dedicated to the stuff - Vitamin E is an antioxidant that protects and restores the skin., which is great.

  • Kind to Skin: Hydrating Light Moisturiser. Again, this product contains Pro-Vitamin B5 and Vitamin E so, it restores, softens, smooths, protects, and moisturises.. all in the one bottle? BRILLIANT! The only thing I don't like about this moisturiser is the smell. To me, it's almost like cardboard.. do you know what I mean? but all in all, it's a great moisturiser for summer as its light and won't be too heavy on the skin. It does leave a kind of dewy finish on the skin, so be careful in your choice of foundation when using this :)

  • Spotless Skin: Rapid Action Spot Zapper. The final product I have, is a roll on with almost the same consistency as the Refreshing Facial Wash Gel, is meant to 'zap' spots in just 4 hours and whilst I can't say that it does, it definitely reduces redness around the spot making it seem less noticeable. I keep this in my bag at all times, just in case, as it does say to keep applying until the spot has disappeared. This has 4 'spot fighting ingredients' that calms and soothes redness and 1 'natural antibacterial' that helps fight spots. I put this on before my foundation to help keep redness at bay.
And there we have it! An overview of these products by Simple. If you haven't tried this brand before, or are thinking of going back to it, please do. I find my skin looks its best when I use Simple religiously, better than any other skin care brand I've tried anyway.
