Simple Products | Reviews

Simple is a skincare brand which specialises in the care of sensitive skin. Their products contain only pure, skin-loving ingredients, and so don't irritate your skin.

I was in Boots last week and saw that they were selling selected Simple products at 3 for the price of 2. I had used two Simple products before - the eye-makeup remover and the rapid action spot zapper. I had really liked them so I decided to avail of the offer and picked up 6 products to try:

Simple Moisturising Facial Wash
Simple Pore Minimising Toning Cleanser
Simple Protecting Moisture Cream
Simple Deep Cleansing Face Mask
Simple Oil Balancing Exfoliating Wash
Simple Vital Vitamin Night Cream



Simple Moisturising Facial Wash


What it claims: Our moisturising facial wash is a perfect blend of multi-vitamins and a skin-loving ingredient to make your skin thoroughly cleansed and moisturised. Foaming and 100% soap free. Perfect even for sensitive skin.

What I think: After using this, my skin always does feel thoroughly cleansed and moisturised. It has the perfect balance between not leaving the skin too oily and totally drying it out. I use this every morning now and it always makes my skin (and me!) feel really awake. I also do agree that it is perfect for sensitive skin. I, personally, have very sensitive skin but this facial wash does not irritate it at all. 
I would give this product 5/5.


Simple Oil Balancing Exfoliating Wash


What it claims: Our Oil Balancing Exfoliating Wash is a perfect blend of active ingredients and witch hazel goodness to deeply clean and refresh your skin. Perfect even for sensitive skin.

What I think: I love this exfoliator because it's so gentle! It leaves my skin feeling so clean and clear. The fact that it is 'oil balancing' is great for people who have oily skin. It takes away the excess oils but doesn't make the skin feel totally stripped of all the oils - it leaves all of the necessary natural oils, so you have the perfect balance. Again, it's also great for people with sensitive skin because of how gentle it is.
I would give this product 5/5.


Simple Vital Vitamin Night Cream

                         

What it claims: Our Vital Vitamin Night Cream is a perfect blend of multi-vitamins and skin-loving ingredients to restore and replenish your skin throughout the night. Perfect even for sensitive skin.

What I think: Straight after applying this, my skin normally feels quite oily and dull but a few minutes later the feeling begins to go away as my skin absorbs the cream. Normally, when I wake up the day and my skin feels smooth and moisturised, but once or twice after waking up my skin has felt a bit dull and tired - it's probably just how my skin absorbs each night and how it varies. Again, this product is great for sensitive skin and doesn't irritate at all.
I would give this product 3/5.


Simple Pore Minimising Toning Cleanser


What it claims: Our Pore Minimising Toning Cleanser is a perfect blend of multi-vitamins, skin-loving ingredients and gentle cleansers to help reduce the size of pores. Leaves your skin feeling refreshed and clarified. Perfect even for sensitive skin.

What I think: When I first applied this (before rubbing it in) I didn't really like the gel texture of it on my face. However, after rubbing it in, it felt more like a liquid, which is good for me. I find it very quick to dry on my face, which I love. It does the job of cleansing and clarifying my skin, however I haven't actually noticed a change in the size of my pores. The areas where my pores would be biggest are my forehead and my cheeks, just around my nose. I was hoping this product would make them smaller, but I haven't seen that happening. This Toning Cleanser is great for people with sensitive skin, as the gel consistency makes it very gentle.
I would give this product 3/5.


Simple Deep Cleansing Face Mask


What it claims: Our Deep Cleansing Face Mask is a perfect blend of multi-vitamins and skin-loving ingredients to draw out deep down dirt and elimate dead cells. Perfect for even sensitive skin.

What I think: This face mask leaves my skin feeling smooth and cleansed. It's perfect for sensitive skin because it cleanses gently - it doesn't actually dry so you wash it off while it's in a creamy state. I like this because it means you're not scrubbing at your face to get it off. I also like that you only have to leave it on for 3 minutes, so it takes almost no time at all.
I would give this product 4/5.


Simple Protecting Moisture Cream


What it claims: Our Protecting Moisture Cream SPF30 is a perfect blend of multi-vitamins and skin-loving ingredients with SPF protection to give dehydrated, tired and dull skin a boost of hydration while protecting it from UVA and UVB rays. The light texture absorbs quickly into your skin to rapidly replenish moisture levels for up to 24 hours. Perfect even for sensitive skin.

What I think: I think this is the best moisturiser I've ever used! I find that some moisturisers can leave my face feeling dull, heavy with product and really oily. This one doesn't at all! It leaves my skin feeling so soft and moisturised. The fact that it has SPF30 s amazing, especially if you spend a lot of time outdoors.
I would give this product 5/5.
