Product Rave: Simple Sensitive Skincare Experts


One of THE most popular questions for me is, what type of moisturizer do you use?

Second? Why?

I LOVE SIMPLE.

It is moisturizing, gentle and perfect for my crazy acne prone skin. It's not a heavy moisturizer so if you're a dry skin sufferer, it may not work for you.

I was about 14/15 when I started using it, and apart from when I was using Proactiv. This was my go to.

From their site:
Simple® knows that what is left out is as important as what is put in when it comes to gentle, yet effective skincare. Our moisturizers, like all Simple®products, have no dyes, artificial perfumes or harsh irritants that can upset skin and contain skin-loving ingredients and added vitamins for natural, healthy-looking skin.


If you're in the market for a reasonably priced, clean, effective, gentle lotion for the face. Look no further. 

I also like their wipes. But for the moment. I prefer to use the Olay for sensitive skin.


In any event, 

Simple Pros: 

It's pure.
No harsh chemicals
No dyes
No fragrances
Inexpensive
Lasts LONG (product use)
Available at most leading supermarkets, pharmacies and beauty supply stores. 

Cons:

Some complain about a strange, almost raw scent. 
Not highly recommended for dry skin. 
Often the light moisturizer is the only one available in Barbados.

Sunday Riley Good Genes versus Drunk Elephant T.L.C Framboos Glycolic Night Serum

If you're an avid YouTube watcher you've probably heard about these products. Both brands blew up on the skincare seen in short order as expensive, but effective. If you're like me you quickly began to wonder: which is better? Short answer: it depends.


Long answer...

I've mentioned Good Genes a few times before on the blog. This 'all-in-one lactic acid treatment' is raved about by the likes of Stephanie Nicole and Caroline Hirons.

From the box: "Deeply exfoliates the dull surface of the skin for clarity, radiance, and younger-looking skin. Visibly brightens the appearance of age spots and discolorations. Instantly plumps the look of fine lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes*

*Clinically tested and proven to significantly improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes. Results obtained via profilometry analysis.

It's A Dupe!

posted on our Facebook page April 12, 2013 "DUPE ALERT: M.A.C Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Dark vs Maybelline Fit Me! in 355 Coconut. Both look the same applied to the face and are the same texture when swatched. The Mineralize Skinfinish Natural is bigger by 1 gram but the Fit Me! is significantly cheap... *ahem* more "inexpensive". There is one shade darker in the M.A.C version but 355 is the darkest shade in the Maybelline. (I'm NC50). If you go through a lot of face powder it's worth a shot - LR"
Talk about a throwback!
I watched a dupe video on YouTube recently where this comparison was mentioned and it reminded me that I had the same thought a while ago. The finish on the skin is identical. Since this original post M.A.C has changed the packaging on their Mineralize line and Maybelline has rebranded/re categorised the Fit Me! range into: Dewy/Set + Smooth and Matte + Poreless.
M.A.C says: "A slow-baked powder with 77-Mineral Complex that provid…
