My new SIMPLE Skin Routine

Just before the Christmas holidays I was given a gift certificate for a free skin analysis and facial at a local spa here in my area. I finally was able to book an appointment to go. I have to say its been awhile since I had a facial and I thoroughly enjoyed it since it was nice to lay back and relax for an hour.

This was my very first skin analysis and what a wake up call it was because being able to see what is actually under your skin is impressive. Through this I discovered I have some rosacea and that there are some skin products that are actually bothering my skin without me really knowing it.

I have sensitive skin so I always try to be careful what I use. So of course after the facial they do their sales pitch on their line of skin care products that would be best suited for you skin and honestly I loved the products that she used on me and I could feel the difference but with a price tag of $400 for 10 bottles was a little too much for my liking and my pocketbook.

I admit I was a little bummed at the price tag because had it been a reasonable price I would have bought it  but I think things happen for a reason because that day I had come home to my March Topbox and inside was a package of Cleansing Facial Wipes from a UK brand called Simple.

After reading that they are kind to your skin and contain no alcohol, oil, perfumes or dyes. I quickly checked out the website Simple Skin Care . I knew this was the new skin routine I was going to start using.

I have been using the Simple skin care routine for almost two weeks now. You should also know that I was in no way compensate to write this review. All the products I will be talking about were purchased by me.

I went out and bought:

Moisturizing Facial Wash leaves your skin thoroughly cleansed and nourished, plus it’s a perfect blend of our purest possible skin loving ingredients with added vitamins.

I loved how this cleaned and made my face feel. Everything they said this product would do, it did it. I love knowing what I am using products that are good for my skin and that won’t irritate it. I know some facial washes can be harsh on the skin but not this one. It was smooth and lathered really well cleaning my face completely.

Our Replenishing Rich Moisturizer leaves your skin replenished and nourished all day long, plus it’s a perfect blend of our purest possible skin loving ingredients with an added vitamin.

I accidentally bought this by mistake and only realized it after I was using it for a few days. For me the moisturizer felt heavy on my skin and I wasn’t sure why until I went onto the site to check it out. This is meant for people with drier skin so if you have drier skin this would be perfect for you. I will be keeping this on hand just in case my skin gets drier because I know just as the cold season comes I feel the dryness.

Our Hydrating Light Moisturizer leaves your skin hydrated and nourished all day long, plus it’s a perfect blend of our purest possible skin loving ingredients with added vitamins.

No this was perfect for my skin. It was light and didn’t feel like I was wearing anything. This was the perfect base for my make up. After using this my face felt nourished, hydrated and smooth. This can be used day and night but for me I ended up getting…

Our VITAL VITAMIN Night Cream helps restore and replenish your skin’s moisture balance throughout the night, plus it’s a perfect blend of our purest possible skin loving ingredients with added vitamins.

The reason I ended up buying this night cream was because I liked what it said it would do and waking up in the morning I would notice the difference in my skin because it didn’t feel tight.

One thing I loved about these products is you don’t need to use alot of it a little goes a long way. I am so happy that I discovered this brand new line of skin care. I love it and love what its doing to my skin. I have noticed a difference in my skin tone and appearance.

I am looking forward to trying some of the other products in this line such as the eye creams, (because I notice that my eyes get tired and puffy) make up remover and the exfoliating wipes.

One thing I love is the price they are all reasonably priced. Although if you are planning on trying this out you should really go to walmart because they start at $7.97 and go up to $12.97 Canadian and walmart currently has coupons for $2 off if you buy one or $5 off if you buy two. I did see these at Pharmaprix (Shopper’s Drug Mart to my friends in other parts of Canada) and they were selling them at $17.99. So be sure to shop around.

Its currently available in Canada and I believe in the US now.

  1. Hi Cindy,

    It is nice to ‘meet’ you.

    I live in the UK and this is the brand of face cleansers and creams that I use and have been doing so for many years. the products really ‘do what they say on the tin’ and I have never suffered from any skin irritations whilst using them.

    It is good to see that a British brand has made it to the other side of the pond and beyond, rather than the other way round and also that you don’t seem to be paying an awful lot more for it than I am.

    I hope that you continue to feel the benefits of the ‘Simple’ life and I am looking forward to you hosting ‘Mailbox Monday’ for April.

    Yvonne
