Spring Skin with Simple

Ok, so it’s taken me a long time to work this out, but following a decent skincare regime really does make the world of difference! I’ve been super lucky over recent months to aquire some lovely skin products that have quite literally made me glowing, and this latest lot are proving perfect for keeping my face looking fresh and natural now the sunnier weather has arrived.
I’ve waxed lyrical about Simple countless times on the blog, having been a fan since I was old enough to start pilfering Mum’s face wash (sorry Mum!) I’m prone to sensitive skin on my face and I’m always wary about trying new brands so having one I know I can fall back on, and that really works is such a confidence boost.
Lately I’ve been discovering some new products from the brand, and true to form, I love them. All from the Kind to Skin + range, first up is the Sun Kissed Moisture Cream- a moisturising gradual facial tanner. I usually steer clear of tanning products but this one hasn’t left me orange. Far from it, applied lightly under my makeup in the morning this has just enhanced my skin’s natural colour and left me looking really quite healthy. The only thing I’m not so keen on with this product is that it has that “fake tan smell”, but I can overlook that for the fact is hasn’t left me looking like I’ve been tango’ed.
Along with Heal Gel, which I recently reviewed, my nightly moisture boost has been coming from the Protecting Moisture Cream with SPF 30. This has a lovely, rich feel to it and applied last thing at night I’ve been waking up with baby soft skin. It’s so sensitive that I’ve even been able to use it on my eyes (although it does sting if you get it in your eyes, take it from one who found out the hard way) which often get dry and tight after a day in front of a computer screen. This is going straight on my re-purchase list.
For hydrating top ups during the day I’ve been spritzing on the Moisture Boost Hydro Mist, a new concept for me as you can literally just spray a fine mist of this on during the day to stop skin drying out. I’m not sure if this is the intention of the product but it works well for me as it doesn’t affect what makeup I’m wearing either. I have been keeping this in my handbag for work days where air-con and artificial light gets to me and it means my face feels far happier come the end of the day.
Simple products can be found in a multitude of retailers including Boots, Superdrug and most good supermarkets too. All at affordable prices there’s no excuse for me slacking on new skin mission…after all, I’m 27 in six days, I don’t want to look old before my time!
Have you tried any of these products? I’d love to know your thoughts below.

  1. I’m a fan of Simple products, they are so reasonably priced 🙂 x

  2. I have liked and used Simple products for years and like them, though I prefer Dermalogica. Just one thing Laura, surely you shouldn’t be using spf30 suncream at night, that’s surely sun protection for daytime, sure they’d have a night cream? X

  3. I love Simple face wipes, but that’s because I’m often too lazy to go through the whole skin routine.
    You have lovely skin anyway Laura, so keep up the good work.

  4. The Sun Kissed Moisture Cream sounds gorgeous. Anything that gives you a healthy glow without an orange tint is right up my street (oh the joys of being pale and freckly haha!), it sounds like such a perfect remedy for the summer days ahead.

    Wow girl hope I look as pretty and young at nearly 27 as you.. I’ve just turned 24 & I won’t even lie I’m feeling like a right old girl with lines under my eyes and a few (eeek wrinkles!)

  5. Help I’m 28 soon. Remember when we were like, 16? I do. You don’t look any older, so don’t worry 😉

    I love Simple Products, I’ve heard some people hate them but they have never irritated my stupid, wimpy skin!
