My most popular post so far on this blog has been a review. I love reviews, I always read them before buying products to see if they will work for me. Mostly, I do this for skin care products. I have had many skin issues, with consistent hormonal acne since I was 14. I have very oily and sensitive skin, so finding products that helped clear my acne and reduce my oilyness has been tough. I am no skin expert clearly, but I hope this might help some of you considering trying these products, with the same skin type as me!
The products I am discussing are from Simple; the Kind to Skin Purifying Cleansing Lotion, Kind to Skin Soothing Facial Toner and the Kind to Skin Hydrating Light Moisturiser. Here is the Simple website to read more on the product descriptions: http://www.simple.co.uk/our-products/category/374539/kind-to-skin
First off, I love these products! I didn't think any cheaper skincare brands would have such a good effect on my skin, but the difference I have seen has been amazing. I began this routine around 4/5 months ago, so I have had a long time to know if they work. I was using a Nivea routine before this, which I liked and did the job, but these products have changed my skin.
Starting with the Cleansing Lotion, this is really gentle on the skin. I use this after a light Garnier makeup remover to remove any remaining dirt or oil on my skin. It leaves my skin feeling really clean and fresh, and with oily skin that is great, as I can tend to feel dirty.
Once I rinse the lotion from my face, I use the Soothing Toner. This removes anything that still has not been washed away, and closes my pores. This stuff really is soothing, it cools my skins redness after rinsing it with water. I leave this to settle into my skin for about a minute.
Finally, I use the Light Moisturiser. I had read the most about this and it was the first thing I tried from the range. It is so light but my skin really feels hydrated and soft after it soaks in. It dries super fast, so it is perfect for under makeup. This moisturiser sold me on the brand. I often found that moisturisers were too heavy, and I could feel them sitting on my skin, which I did not like, My skin soaks this right up, and looking plumper and healthier.
In terms of my acne, I think these 3 products in combination really did the trick for me. The cleanser does a great job of removing the oil and dirt, without causing a reaction in any breakouts I have. The toner reduces redness in my breakouts. The moisturiser has reduced my oilyness as my skin has the required amount of hydration. My skin does not react to the products in any way, it never has broken me out.
I would highly recommend these products to anyone with a skin type and issues like me. The picture here of my skin shows what it looks like now, I unfortunately dont have any pictures of before I started using them.
I hope this review was insightful into my experience and might help you!
