Firstly I need to apologise for how long it's been since I last blogged! I have been soooo super busy with school, exams and revision, blah blah blah. But im back and I should be blogging lots more like I was. So on with the post. I recently changed my skincare to Simple. I have recently been using Botanics by Boots (cheap and cheerful!), but I started to get bored so I though't I'd change it up. I mean I would love to be able to buy more high end skincare, something like Liz Earle or Lierac. But Im a student and have hardly any money, so cheap and cheerful will do me just fine! The reason I got intrigued by Simple skincare was well, 1. They have no perfumes or colours in them and 2. It's supposedly the UK's number one skincare brand, so here is what I thought :)
This face wash contains no perfumes, no colours and one vital vitamin. It has the pro0vitamin B5 which restores, softens and smoothes. It's pH balanced so it works perfectly with your skin. It is also 100% soap free, so it doesn't dry out your skin! I use this face wash in the shower to take most of my make-up. It's super gentle, smells fresh and clean and it's just a lovely face wash. They also do a scrub version if you prefer something exfoliating.
Cleanser & Toner
I really really like these two products. I think there both brilliant. So let's start with the purifying cleansing lotion first. It has the pro-vitamin B5 which actively restores skin, softens it and smoothes it. It also contains Bisbolol and Allantoin these soften, calm and protect. You just put it on a cotton pad and cleanse your face morning and night. This cleanser is really good at removing make-up, you don't have to rub with the cotton pad, it just glides away. Seen as it doesn't have any perfumes, it just has this smell of clean (if that makes sense!).
The toner also contains the vitamin B5 (restores, softens and smoothes). But for it's skin nutrients it contains Chamomile (gently softens and smoothes), Witch Hazel (helps tone and tighten pores) and Allatoin (softens and protects). Oh and it's alcohol free! So basically this soothing toner is packed full of good stuff! It again has just a clean, fresh smell and really removes and last traces of make-up and cleanser. It also makes a great base for your moisturiser. Love it!
These moisturisers have three vital vitamins which are; pro-vitamin B5 (restores, softens and smoothes), vitamin E (moisturisers) and vitamin F (renews and regenerates). It also has three "skin loving nutrients", these are; Glycerin (hydrates and nourishes), Allantoin (softens and protects) and Bisabolol (soothes and calms). So these moisturisers are providing you with everything you could possibly need! I love these! They are super light and fluffy, absorb lovely and quickly and have really improved my skin. The day cream also makes my make-up easier to apply. Everyone must have these, amazing products!
I brought this moisturiser because it is different to the day or night moisturiser. It is a replenishing rich moisturiser that gives 12 hour moisturisation. It has the same vitamins and skin nutrients as the day and night moisturisers (I don't want to write it all out again, aha!). It also has UV filters. I haven't actually used this yet because Im going to use it as a day cream when my skin feels a bit more dry or if the weather is dry, cold or windy (not good for the skin!). So this is more of a winter cream, but if you have dry skin I would really recommend just using this as your day and night cream.
I apologise for how long this blog post was! But I wanted to talk about what the product has to offer and what I think to them. I hope this was helpful and you enjoyed reading it.
What skincare do you guys use and what do you think to it?
