Review: Simple

| No Comments
Thanks to Klout I earned a perk from Simple (at the time they were only in the UK but I believe they are now available in the US).  The products that I received were the makeup removal wipes and the replenishing moisturizer.  I really love the fact that I not only got free samples but they were full size samples.  It took a couple of weeks to get them since they were coming from the UK.  My daughter opened the package right away when she got home and texted me that they were here and she was so excited.

She's usually the guinea pig when it comes to anything and everything makeup/hair/food... yeah.

I have a hard time finding makeup removing wipes that don't want to remove a layer of skin with them.  Simple products are for sensitive skin, which both Little Lady and I have for the most part.  Use the wrong product and we break out pretty quick and it's such a pain to hide.  The wipes removed most of my makeup.  Even though they say they remove waterproof mascara, there is always the factor that sometimes you have to use a secondary product.  When I was wearing Collossal by Maybelline, the wipes took it off pretty damn good.  I switched to Falsies (also by Maybelline) recently and it has a harder time of taking it off.  No problem though, I always have some other way of removing it.  The reason I liked these wipes is because I didn't feel like I had just scraped off a layer of skin.  The replenishing moisturizer helped after the wipes as well.

When we received the Simple samples we both started using the moisturizer right away.  We had recently bought Ponds BioHydrate and she realized that it was breaking her out every time she used it.  I didn't think it was breaking me out and I was using it twice a day.  Switching to the Simple for a week and then trying out the BioHydrate made me realize that it was breaking me out as well.  I also love the fact that there is no scent.  I prefer only smelling my deodorant and body spray, not the products I put on my face or in my hair (which with hair products it's almost inevitable...).  It actually freaked me out for a little while that there wasn't any smell associated with it, just a scent of nothing really.  I mean, it had a scent that told you it was moisturizer or lotion but no defining flowery smell.  And the non-scent wasn't heavy or noticeable at all.  

I really do enjoy the Simple products that I received and if I can find them here in the good ole USA I'll price check them and see if I can afford them.  If I can, then I'll definitely be using them and if you have sensitive skin, you might want to give them a try as well.  

(This is a non-profit post and my samples really were totally and completely free.)
