The traditional model of ‘cleanse, tone and moisturise’ is as outdated as the skin types of ‘dry, oily or normal.’ Times have moved on and so have our lifestyles, with the amount of alcohol we consume and sleep we have per night having as much impact as how often you exfoliate your skin. Our hectic lives and multi-layered diets have left our skin cowering in confusion, not knowing which way to turn or what products to use. With the launch of Simple’s new diagnostic tool Simple Sense, they aim to take into consideration as much about your lifestyle as your skin condition, in order to provide a detailed and bespoke product plan that will have your skin looking better in four weeks. I’ve been testing some of the products within the range and these are my favourites that really help to make skincare not only simple, but fun.
1. Deep Cleanse: Kind To Skin Vital Vitamin Foaming Cleanser
To start any routine you need a really great cleanser. Simple’s gentle foaming face wash helps to remove impurities and any last trace of makeup from the skin, to leave your complexion looking fresh and clear. The foam is extremely light, providing just the right amount to thoroughly cleanse in the shower without stripping the skin. Although you definitely need to apply a moisturiser after using this as the foaming agent can leave the surface a little tight, it’s a lot less abrasive than other cleansers you can pick up at a similar price.
2. Polish: Kind to Skin Exfoliating Facial Wipes
I haven’t made my hatred of face wipes silent over the last few years, but if you’re going to use them occasionally then you may as well make them work for you. Simple’s exfoliating wipes contain no perfume, but they do contain soothing Aloe Vera and Vitamin E for an injection of goodness. The wipes themselves are thicker and contain lots of little square holes, providing a cloth that exfoliates and thoroughly removes superficial dirt from the surface. These are great for late nights when you can’t quite face a three-step makeup removal routine, knowing that at least you’ll remove as much as possible in under a minute whilst ensuring your pillow remains makeup free.
3. Treat: Kind to Eyes Revitalising Eye Roll-On
With the mornings colder and darker, it’s even harder to drag yourself out of bed and feel ready to face the day. If you struggle to awaken your senses then this handy eye roll-on will soothe tired eyes and tighten the delicate skin that instantly gives away your lack of sleep. Containing cucumber extract and no irritating fragrance, this little tube is great to use before eye cream and makeup to provide a little extra boost. Suitable for even the most sensitive skins, it leaves no residue behind and can also be used as a cooling eye gel when delicately tapped into skin for added impact.
4. Protect: Kind to Skin+ Illuminating Radiance Cream
Highlighting your skin can make a big difference, bringing your natural radiance to the surface when dull and dry skin makes a habit of hiding it away. The light reflecting particles within Simple’s illuminating cream help to create the illusion of healthy skin, even when it hasn’t seen decent sunshine for months. The light formula works well over a light moisturiser, particularly as it contains SPF15 to protect against sun damage, even in the colder months when you may forget about applying essential sun protection.
In addition to these four star products, Simple also offer everything from a handy makeup touch-up pen that removes mistakes with ease, to a light BB Cream to hydrate and correct pigmentation when you simply don’t have the time for a full face of slap. Although their classic cleansers and toners still do the job, it’s these more innovative and affordable products that really whet my appetite.
