Oh So Simple

One of my favourite skincare brands is Simple. I own several of their products and would recommend any of them, so I thought I would share my favourites with you. 

Simple Favourites L-R: Moisturising Facial Wash, Vital Vitamin Day Cream, Purifying Cleansing Lotion, Cleansing Facial Wipes, Soothing Facial Toner, Vital Vitamin Night Cream & Protecting Moisture Cream.

Simple's 'kind to skin' approach is great because although people with any skin type can use simple, it is aimed at those with more sensitive skin. I have quite sensitive skin so to find a brand that I can use a variety of products from is brilliant. 

I've used the Simple face wipes for several years now and although there are some other great alternatives out there, I always find myself coming back to these. They also take eye make up off really well, especially waterproof mascara which can be a pain to get off! 

My next discovery in the Simple range was their cleanser and toner. I use these both morning and night, but especially like using them in the evening after I have taken my make up off with a face wipe. They leave my face feeling fresh and don't tighten up my skin like many other products I have used. 

At the same time as originally purchasing the cleanser and toner, I also came across the Vital Vitamin Day & Night Creams. I moisturise daily but decided to give these a try as I have never used complementing day/night creams from the same brand before. I love both of these as they are really hydrating and leave my skin lovely and soft. A major bonus for me is that they also soak in fairly quick as I hate cream that leaves you feeling sticky. 

As mentioned above I moisturise daily with various other products from different brands. However as I love simple so much, I decided to give their one a try. I have to say this is the only product I have tried that disappointed me slightly. There is nothing wrong with it, it does everything you could want from a moisturiser. So why does it disappoint me? I have decided that I just prefer a couple of the others I use more. So why is it in a favourites post? Because I still use it as it has SPF protection, which my other favourite moisturiser lacks. 

Finally, my most recent addition to the collection is the face wash. I have to admit I have only used this product a couple of times but so far I am loving it and hope I continue to! 

I love the Simple range as not only are the products lovely, they are really affordable too and are always available in Superdrug and Boots. They are also quite often on offer in Superdrug - and currently on offer at the moment too! I also love the packaging as it's so fresh and easy to determine the products from the shape of the packaging. The other bonus of the packaging is that they tell you how many vital vitamins and skin loving ingredients/nutrients are in the product. 

I am sure I will be adding to my collection again soon - are there any Simple products I haven't mentioned that you love? I would love to know if you have a recommendation for me, or let me know what your favourites are too!
