 The Phrase “Skin Care Routine” used to fill me with dread. I would read magazines and wonder in awe, how many women found time to perform such complex rituals. Nowadays, I have to say that I am very much a skin care enthusiast, some might say an addict! However, I don’t think caring for your skin should be a complicated chore. Its all about picking a few good products that really work, and that is where Simple Skincare comes in!

Last week I had the pleasure of trying out an array of Simple Skincare products. Simple is a brand renowned for its ‘kind to skin’ approach, their products contain vitamins and botanicals, no perfumes, no colours , no nasty surprises. These products are so fuss free, all you need is a few products and 10 minutes.

Moisturising Facial Wash


It is so important to wash your face at the end of the day. Cleansing lotions and cotton wool or wipes have their place; if you are in need of a sprucing before a night out, or you are at a festival, but nothing should take the place of actually washing your face when you are at home. With this wash I used a facial cloth for a little bit of light exfoliation, it was dreamy.

Moisture Boost Hydromist


Beauty mists are my all-time favourite skincare product. This Simple Hydromist packs a powerful hydrating punch for such an unassuming bottle. Used after cleansing, it tones and hydrates the skin leaving it supple and calm, ready for moisturising. You can also use it throughout the day, over make up to maintain a dewy look. A bonus of using beauty mist is that when you produce a little bottle of it from your hand bag and start spritzing away, you will automatically feel like a fabulous diva!

Revitalising Eye Roll-On 


This is a cooling and refreshing treat for the eye area, it feels great to apply and reduces puffiness. It’s a good idea to use a separate product on the eye area as the skin there is more delicate than rest of your face. Whether its an early morning or long day in front of a computer, your eyes with thank you.

Protecting Light Moisturiser with SPF 15


We all know that we should be wearing sun protection every day, but it can be a tricky balance to handle. Even facial sun creams can be heavy, which causes havoc with your make up and cause oiliness and even break-outs. So, thank goodness simple have taken their Light Moisturiser and added SPF 15. What a relief, we can all head out into the sunshine, knowing our skin is protected and our make up will not be sliding off our faces.

All in all the range is easy to work with and affordable. We love it. To purchase any Simple products and try them out for yourself head to www.simple.co.uk  or find your nearest Boots branch where you can find a huge range of Simple Skincare.
