No good for my sensitive combination skin, left my skin dry and scaly to the point that it got really raw and painful, when I gave up and tried something else.
Really good, doesn't irritate the skin. Good for oily skin. How ever if you have really dry skin this may not be rich enough.
love this moisturiser. Simple do great products and they are soooo cheap. This moisturiser is fab, you need a little bit it goes a long way, its so light and gel like and i only need to apply in the morning it keeps my face moisturised all day! x
Well I didn't buy this , i got mine for free at sample buddy. When i first received it , the packaging was okay. It wasn't so great that my lipstick melted. The price for me was free. And it says its a 12 hour moisturizer which is so true. I applied it on last night around 9 pm. The next day 10:46 am my face still feel fresh and not dry! I like this product and I wouldn't mind trying the whole product line. I have sensitive skin so if a sensitive skin gal buy this would work excellent on you. Bye bye dry patches, Hello repaired skin! <3
I'm so surprised my skin likes this, as this type of lotion is usually the sort of thing that either makes me more oily or just doesn't seem to do anything. I actually find that it hydrates my skin nicely, is absorbed quickly, and leaves my skin looking fairly matte for an acceptable amount of time. It doesn't have a fragrance or spf and I think this probably explains why it doesn't make it too greasy. It makes a nice base for make up and I'm currently applying my Biore UV Perfect over this for a nice dewy-ish finish during the day time.
I really like the way my skin feels after I've applied this after thoroughly cleansing in the evening. It doesn't feel heavy on the skin at all. I've also started using this to buffer my duac cream by mixing the two together on my hand, and then applying it. This has helped cut down on the irritation caused by the bp. On some areas that were dry (from before I used this) I'm able to just keep applying thick layers of this lotion, which are quickly abosorbed into the skin. This hasn't caused any clogs or further break outs.
Really surprised I like this, but I'm really enjoying using this no nonsense cream. I'm also surprised to see that this product has such low reviews. It goes to show that youreally have to try something to see if your skin will like it.
The bottle cost £3 which is great value and I now feel that this product will be something I always keep in my skincare arsenal. I'm not sure if that makes it HG, but it is something that I feel I can trust, even on skin that has been irritated/dried out by acne medications etc.
Not great-goes on very thick os feels very hydrating at first then once absorbs just completley dries up and leaves your skin feeling very tight and uncomfortable
This is a good moisturizer. Although it has mineral oil, it does not break me out. This light moisturizer isn't too heavy on my oily skin. There are some downsides though.. It has sparkles! I guess that's fine if you don't have oily skin, but if you do, it just makes your skin shiny... Also, I don't really like the packaging. Sort of hard to get the last bit of product out. Overall this is an okay product. I might repurchase since it's pretty cheap, but if you haven't tried it, you should give it a shot!
I think this product smells horrible and it broke my arms out in a bumpy rash. I will never use it again. I put it on my arms and suddenly 15 minutes later I look down at my arms and they are covered in some type of skin rash. This only happened to the part that I applied the lotion to. I do not recommend this.
I'll try to explain my ratings in sections.
I gave two lippies because I do believe that this moisturized my skin effectively, and that the product is what it says it is- a light, hydrating moisturizer. However, upon using this for the first two weeks, I noticed that every day I would wake up with new blemishes and after a while it just became too unbearable to stick with... This moisturizer now lives in my bathroom drawer with all of my other defective moisturizers, where it will stay until I am out of hand lotion in the winter. Plus, the company implies that their products are natural and simple and if you look at the ingredient lists of their products, they *simply* are not.
I thought this was rather expensive for a drugstore moisturizer and was hesitant to even buy it at all in the first place, simply because of the price... I spend ten minutes kneeled down in the skincare aisle of Target, reading the ingredients and unsure of whether or not to entrust this moisturizer with the task of beautifying my skin. Apparently I did not make a very good decision!
I thought the packaging was just fine for a moisturizer, though it was a bit difficult for me to open (I don't know if anybody else had this problem). I'm not too picky about packaging unless the moisturizer happens to come in a jar, which this one does not.
I've been using the Simple Hydrating face lotion for maybe 5 months now. I have dry, sensitive, combo skin. It absorbs easily and is non-greasy. Feels nice and refreshing and relieves any dry skin patches. It has not made me break out or clog my pores. Its says right on it that it's "hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic, and won't clog pores" so not sure why everyone out there says they are breakout out by it?!. This lotion isn't heavy or very thick, but it moisturizes perfectly. It has "simple" ingredients, not "natural" ones. So don't be confused. Also there are no perfumes or dyes. Great for sensitive skin. I just wish it was more "natural" ingredients.
