Product Rave: Simple Sensitive Skincare Experts

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

Second? Why?


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
Lasts LONG (product use)
Available at most leading supermarkets, pharmacies and beauty supply stores. 


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

#Anti-Haul | My Brand Blacklist

In keeping with the Brand Awareness series, I was planning to do a Beauty Brands Drama series and discuss just that. The idea was scrapped cause really, I like to laugh and ting at dem tings but they don't truly matter in the grand scheme of life. What does matter though is that we be smart consumers. Let's not fall into mob mentality - whether for or against. Let's spend our money wisely and less susceptible to marketing ploys.

By all means, spend your money how you want. Like whichever brand you choose. Rep whomever influencer you "love". This is just my 10¢.

Jeffree Star Cosmetics

I bought one of his liquid lipsticks; I wore it once and then I threw it away (I didn't like the scent). Yuh see, I actually believe that this man is just an entertainer. He likes to say things for shock value. He likes the limelight...loves the attention. What he actually believes? I don't know if we'll ever really know. What I know fuh sure though is that he ain't tu…
