My Simple Skincare Product Review

Are you familiar with Simple Skincare? They are a line of skincare products that are said to have no dyes, artificial perfumes, or harsh irritants. They are also labeled UK's #1 facial skin care product, and have been recently made quite popular in the US market.

I recently had the opportunity to try out two Simple Skincare Products, myself. The first product that I was able to try through the She Speaks: Walgreens Simple Skincare Program, was the Simple Hydrating Light Moisturizer. I was really excited to try this product. Being that it has no harsh chemicals or irritants, I did have high expectations for it, but unfortunately, it didn’t meet all of them. I found the Simple Hydrating Light Moisturizer wasn’t as “light” as I thought it would be. Now, this is just my opinion based on my own skin type which tends to be combination, but on the more oily side.  It did, however, moisturize well, and it didn’t make me break out, which is also a major PLUS!

There was one particular issue that I experienced with this moisturizer. It had a weird tendency to produce a burning sensation on my face upon application. It actually had me worried the first few times, but I didn’t break out in any type of rash, so that was GOOD! It did baffle me, though, because I thought the moisturizer would be on the gentler side. I know everybody’s skin reacts to products differently. I am wondering if this would have made a better hand lotion for me, rather than for the face.

Either way, I am glad that I had the chance to try it. If I could recommend this to anyone, it would be to someone who doesn’t have sensitive skin. That stinging feeling was a bit too much for me! I also felt as though this product would better fit someone with normal skin, as opposed to oily.

The second Simple Skincare product that I had the opportunity to try was the Refreshing Face Wash Gel. This was a small sample that I received from the CVS promotion that I had posted about back on March 10, 2012. Again, since it’s from the same line of products, it is free of dyes and artificial perfumes. Unlike, the Hydrating Light Moisturizer, I had a really good experience with this product. It gave my skin a nice clean feeling without over drying or causing my face to breakout. The one thing that I really loved about this face wash was that it did a great job at removing my eye makeup. I wouldn’t say that the Simple Skincare Refreshing Face Wash Gel provided any type of cooling effect (the “Refreshing” label initially threw me off with that), but it did have an overall light feeling and texture to it. All in all, I liked this particular facial wash product and would probably purchase it. 

Well there you have it folks…my experiences with two separate Simple Skincare Facial Products. Again, the opinions I expressed, above, are based solely on my own experience with both items. I am not telling anyone to buy or not buy a product, but I always enjoy reading real feedback when I am in the market for something, so I wanted to share my own experience for those who may be interested.

Although I received a free product to try, courtesy of  She Speaks and Simple Skincare, no other compensation was provided. The views and opinions expressed here are purely those of my own. Please see my disclosure policy for further information.
