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.
