Why I am all about Simple!

20 Jun

ImageI first started off using Simple when I was looking for a gentle face wash for sensitive skin. I love how gentle all their products are on skin and I often switch from the ‘Refreshing facial wash gel’ and the ‘Moisturising facial wash’ and they both do exactly what they claim. The moisturising one is just as moisturising as it says. Since I don’t like to use moisturiser at night I use the moisturising face wash at night and it keeps my skin hydrated.

I also use their ‘Hydrating Light Moisturiser’ after the facial wash gel. I ran out of the one I had and Boots completely sold out so I desperately needed something that would be similar. So I decided to try out Boots own brand ‘Simply Sensitive’ moisturiser, this is great as it also has SPF 15! Since Boots have 3 for 2 on all skin care at the moment I decided to take two of these which isn’t very wise since I was just picking it up to try it out. Luckily, I have also fallen in love with it. It is very light on skin just like the Simple Moisturiser I usually use. so from now on I think I will be switching between the two because I love them both equally!



When it comes to eye make-up, or any make-up really I am really OCD about the way I remove it and before applying it. Before applying make up I do my usual routine of face wash and moisturiser and then I use a bit of the Simple ‘Soothing Facial Toner’ followed by the ‘Purifying Cleansing Lotion’ as recommended with a cotton wool pad lightly over the skin. After this I use my usual primer and then apply make-up.

A Quick-Fix:

If I make a tiny mistake when applying eye liner I use Simple’s ‘eye make-up corrector pen’, it’s amazing and saves me a lot of time and stress. However, there is own downside to it, you have to constantly clean it with make up remover wipes, but I forgive for every ‘about-to-be-late’ moment it saves me from.

When it comes to removing it I am very particular about the way I do it and what I use so that I can rest assured that all traces of the make up are gone before I can sleep. I find that make up remover wipes are not enough to remove eye make up, imagine all that pigmented eyeshadow, gel liner and water proof mascara. That is a lot to take off. Since I don’t use foundation I find that most of the make up on my face is the eye make up.

When I start, I remove the lightest make up first which would be your blusher, bronzer or highlighter and any concealer with Simple ‘Cleansing Facial Wipes’. After this I move onto the eyes and remove any shadow. Then, I take out another wipe for the mascara and eyeliner and any other bits. After this I like to use another one over the whole face.


Then to make sure ALL eye make-up is entirely removed I love using the Simple ‘eye make-up remover’ which is absolutely gentle and just as ‘kind’ as it claims on the skin. I use Boots ‘cotton wool double-faced round pads’ with this and it clears out all remaining eye make-up.

I find that any other cotton wool pads that say they are 100% cotton are just not as soft as the Boots one, not even Superdrug’s can match up to it. The Boots one is absolutely gentle and ultra-soft, not just that, it’s non-fleecing and it has two different textured on either side to suit face or nails or anything really!

Finally I end my make-up removing routine with my toner and cleansing lotion like I started.

Importance of a Toner:

A facial toner does wonders for your skin, it’s not an essential but for me personally I feel like it is, I would not be able to go without one. It gives your skin the right pH balance restoring it to a perfect balance. It also prevents spots and works to add that coat of protection. More importantly for OCD me, it makes me feel refreshed, I love the cool fresh feeling it gives.

A lot of people go through a lot to find the perfect solution for trouble skin or just something perfect for their skin type and I feel accomplished for having found and fallen for Simple. It’s simply perfect!
