Moisturizers -Simple -Water Boost Hydrating Gel Cream

Contrary to others I’ve had a great experience with this product. I have oily-normal skin and this product keeps me hydrated but not shiny all day...perfect to use night or day for me. Most moisturizers give me oily shiny skin and don’t penetrate the surface. I would recommend for those with non sensitive skin.

Cleansers -Simple -Purifying cleansing Lotion

In three words: soothing, effective, cheap. This lotion doesn't send my sensitive skin into overdrive, soothes inflammation, feels pleasant on the skin, and efficiently cleans and removes makeup. It is very good value and I would certainly recommend it.


Cleansers -Simple -Cleansing Facial Wipes

Good value, honest wipes that don't upset my temperamental skin. A perfect lazy-girl solution to clean skin. They are soft and do remove my makeup easily. My one complaint is that if I use them for too long, they can start to irritate my eyes, so I use them for going on holiday only!

Moisturizers -Simple -Water Boost Skin Quench Sleeping Cream

on 8/7/2018 5:55:00 PM

I got this trying to find a substitute for a Clinique Moisture Surge gel (which has been reformulated, so I didn't want to spend a pile on something that wouldn't be the same), which I'd been using OVER moisturizer and UNDER foundation, so pretty much as a hydrating primer. Note I have very sensitive dry skin.

This is fragrance free/unscented, and to my nose, really no smell at all. Despite being called a cream, it's a thick, non-sticky gel texture, and it sinks in quite well. I'm sure that this wouldn't provide sufficient moisture for my dry, post-menopausal skin on its own; but at $10 it's a great primer. For oilier/normal skin, it might just work well as a moisturizer. I haven't had any issues with reactions or sensitivity, a big problem for me.

Note that I depot a small amount into a tiny jar with a clean spatula, to avoid the cons of jar packaging.

Toners -Simple -Soothing Skin Toner

Great toner, at very good value. It calms redness on my skin and feels so lovely on, but I can't say that I have seen it shrink my pores, or even out my skin tone. It just soothes and calms the skin, which is great for the price.


Cleansers -Simple -Moisturizing Facial Wash

This cleanser is not suitable for sensitive skin. After using it once, I broke out badly in eczema, and had to throw it away. It has a nice gel-like texture, no fragrance as such, but did not moisturise my skin very well. Save your money and buy something else instead.


Moisturizers -Simple -Replenishing Rich Moisturiser

on 8/2/2018 7:03:00 PM

foto

This is a good, honest moisturiser. It does not make my very sensitive skin break out, and does not make my skin oily. It absorbs within minutes to leave a nice matte finish, and feels comfortable. My one bugbear is that it is not a rich moisturiser, but only a light one, so could not be used like a heavy night cream.

Moisturizers -Simple -Light Moisturiser

You get what you pay for with this product. It is a very average moisturiser, it gets the job done, but it does feel slightly oily on (and takes ages to absorb in,) and though it does not disagree with my sensitive skin, it doesn't sit very well under makeup. But for the price, it is very decent.

Moisturizers -Simple -Oil Balancing Moisturiser

on 8/2/2018 6:39:00 PM

For its price, this moisturiser is very good. It does what it promises, helping to mattify skin (though I note that this effect doesn't last long under my makeup.) It is also good at delivering hydration, and my skin feels soft and hydrated after application. I only use it during the day, opting for a richer moisturiser at night, because it dries out my skin a little if I use it both morning and night. Overall, good product, great price.


Cleansers -Simple -Micellar Wipes

on 7/16/2018 1:02:00 PM

Beware: Currently recovering from the worst allergic reaction I’ve ever had due to these wipes. I’ve used the original Simple wipes with no issues prior to this. These micellar wipes caused my eyes to dry out, become so painful that I couldn’t stand to open them, then swell shut. I’m a skincare junkie, have used every cleansing wipe under the sun and have never had a reaction like this. I don’t usually write reviews but felt compelled to warn others about this product. It took three different types of allergy meds to calm the pain and swelling.

Cleansers -Simple -Micellar Wipes

I love love love these wipes! I've used a lot of high street brand wipes and these are the only ones that take everything off without having to scrub half my face off! 😒 I find that with a lot of wipes I'll need to go over with micellar water after usage because they'll leave a bit of foundation or mascara but these leave my face 100% clean! They also don't dry out my skin. Just leave it clean and happy!

I would recommend 😊

Cleansers -Simple -Hydrating Cleansing Oil

foto

First ever cleansing oil for me, so I don’t have anything to compare it to. Does the job, I wouldn’t say it gets rid of 100% of the makeup on my face (also depends on how much I have on that day), but it does remove the majority of it. I follow up with a face wash and toner anyway so it’s not a major problem. The bottle recommends using 3-4(?) drops of it, I don’t know what size drops they mean but that is far from enough. A good teaspoon size amount seems to do the trick for me. I’ve had it for 3 weeks now and use it most nights and I still have around 85% of the bottle left. I like how light and gentle it is, doesn’t feel disgustingly greasy like I expected it to be-especially on my oily t-zone, but rather hydrating and nourishing. Has that unscented type of scent (you know which one). Great price. (€9.99 from Boots Ireland) I can always depend on Simple’s products not to irritate my ridiculously sensitive skin.

Cleansers -Simple -Hydrating Cleansing Oil

This is a great, affordable cleansing oil option that's easily available in Australia for those unable or unwilling to order in Asian cleansing oils. It uses plain, innocuous grapeseed oil and includes retinyl palmitate and vitamin E. Not that the latter 2 vitamins will really be of benefit in a makeup remover, but I won't complain about their existence. It has a thicker consistency, which I prefer, as it's less prone to running down my arms and neck than thinner cleansing oils and it removes my very thick Moo Goo zinc based spf and my full face of make up with ease and minimal tugging. It also DOES NOT sting my eyes, which a lot of cleansing oils tend to do.
The packaging has room for improvement. While I appreciate that it comes in just 125ml, once you fall in love with this cleansing oil you'll want it to come in a bigger bottle. Also, on a recent overnight trip this leaked in my bag so despite the travel friendly size, this can potentially be a disaster to travel with. Proceed with caution.
