So…I have pretty bad skin most of the time. Ever since my teens I have suffered from acne, and it never went away when I got out of my teens. It’s horrible and I would love to have perfect skin that I didn’t feel like I need to cover up all of the time.
In recent years I’ve been looking after it much more, using products that are supposed to combat bad skin, and also my Clarisonic, which has helped greatly! However, towards the end of last year and earlier this year, my skin was at the worst it had been for a long time, I have no idea what caused it – but it really, really got me down.
I made a decision then that I was going to simplify things in my skincare for a while, treating it as sensitive (which it isn’t really) and also trying to use more natural products so that I know what’s going onto my skin.
For the past month I’ve actually been using some basics that I haven’t used since I was a teenager, from the Simple Skincare* line. Their products are great for sensitive skin and do not contain perfumes and colours.
Their purifying cleansing lotion is a lovely rich consistency then turns lotion like when massaged onto the skin, it melts away my makeup without any hassle, even removing my eye makeup and not irritating my eyes.
The soothing toner is exactly that! It feels so cool and soothing to the skin; it removes any extra grime that might be on your face and it leaves it feeling refreshed. The best thing is that it’s not drying at all; it actually leaves my skin feeling smooth and hydrated with no tightness or discomfort.
I was intrigued by the exfoliating wipes, I normally use an actual Exfoliator, but these were really nice to use, and very gentle on my skin, they are great for travel and for freshening up. They left my skin feeling smooth and they don’t leave any residue behind. For me personally, I still like to use my usual Exfoliator twice a week, but these are perfect for in-between days.
The last product I’d like to mention is a surprise actually. I’ve tried roll on for the under eye before and never felt much of a difference, but the revitalising rollon from Simple feels so soothing under the eyes, it’s the perfect pick me up for tired eyes. It doesn’t feel sticky and you can feel the cooling soothing feeling for a few minutes after application. This is a must for the morning!
Overall I’ve really enjoyed using these products and treating my skin with more simple products that won’t irritate my skin. I’d definitely recommend them if you are looking to try something new. The whole range is so affordable too, which is always good!
