i can honestly say im really shocked at the bad reviews this product has.
for me, i think its wonderful!
it has great info on the back of the product - which i love reading - about the ingredients, such as glycerin, pro vit B5 and allantoin to name a few.
despite my skin being oily and spotty, particularly my chin and forehead, i chose to use the rich moisturiser and im so glad i chose this one over the 'normal' moisturiser.
my skin is smooth, soft and feels bouncy! it leaves no 'slime' or residue and sinks into my skin.
i can also say i havent experienced a plastic smell. actually, i would say it is scentless.
i got this product on offer for £2 an absolute bargain. it is 125ml and has lasted me ages. a little goes a long way.
apply this in upward circular motions on the neck and face. avoid eye area. use the simple eye balm. works a treat.
"Sensitive skin experts", my butt! I see no red flags in the ingredient list (though my list of red flags is a work-in-progress), but it's a good thing I did a spot test before putting this on my entire face. Very irritating (it burns!), does not spread easily, does not absorb well. Also has a plasticky smell, as others have noted. Should have read the reviews first!
It is a pretty typical moisturizer. My gripe with this is the smell. I stopped using this product because I could not stand the smell. It smells like burning plastic to me, and I just couldn't take it. I had to switch to Cetaphil because at least it smells like nothing.
My favorite moisturizer ever! I have very oily, acne-prone skin. I feel like this product has helped balanced my skin out. It didn't break me out or anything. The only complaint I have is that if I put too much around my mouth it gives my skin a slight tingle, which I think is good but I dislike sometimes. But no redness, breakouts or anything. This is completely scent-free and odorless (I'm quite sensitive to fragrances and odors in my face products), non-sticky and non-greasy.Would recommend this to people with sensitive skin like me!
I decided to try this because it said it was for sensitive skin. This stuff burned my skin and turned it red! Terrible!
This is the first product I've tried from Simple. I bought into their advertising and thought that my acne prone, reactive skin might benefit from a basic moisturizer without harsh ingredients. In the winter, my skin is dry and I needed something that would nourish and moisturize my skin without causing break outs.
I tried using this for about 2 months. It wasn't anything special- it kept my skin from drying out but it felt like it was just sitting on top of my skin like a mask, without being absorbed. I felt like it left a residue that ended up causing breakouts and whiteheads.
For the same price, I'd rather go back to my tried and true Neutrogena Anti-Wrinkle Cream, which I've used since I was 19. I do feel like my skin needs more nourishment now that I'm older so I'm going to try AminoGenesis Therapeutic Facial Repair.
This product is horrible for acne prone skin. First of all, it doesn't feel rich. It almost feels like a slime that just sits on top of your skin and doesn't sink in. I never felt moisturized after using this. Also, I used this and by the end of the day I have white heads all over my face that are also red and swollen. If you are acne prone or sensitive I advise you NOT to buy this product. I will not be buying this again. Additionally, I found that it burned and turned my face beet red upon application, which I thought was weird for a product meant for sensitive skin.
This is not a rich moisturizer for my pale, dryer skin. I use it every morning to restore a little moisture after washing. It's just enough to make my skin not look greasy by the end of the day.
I've found moisturizers will either work as they should... Or burn like crazy, cause redness from said singe, and do no good otherwise.
Luckily, this stuff has worked for me. I use a dime-size amount from my neck up and then add a bit extra under my eyes. So far, it's reduced the look of fine lines under my eyes. It holds up beautifully under makeup and is ACTUALLY scent free! It's around $14 at Walmart / Superstore in Canada which I don't like - but I used a BOGO coupon. If I can find this cheaper (or keep scoring coupons ;)) ill definitely keep buying.
I got a full sized free sample from Walmart.com when I bought something else. Lately I've been using it after washing my face with African Black Soap and my face has been super oily. Normally my tzone gets oily but my skin is not super oily at all. At my age and since it's winter, my skin tends to dry out. I need a good lotion but this is not it.
