Review: Simple Skincare

Disclaimer: I received these products for free as part of the ChickAdvisor Product Review Club but all opinions expressed are 100% my own.

I am very happy that I was able to test and review a few products from Simple Skincare, I am always looking for beauty products that are effective for my particular issues. I have sensitive skin and I am sensitive to certain chemicals. I also am allergic to certain artificial coloring. To top it off, I have combination skin and I have cystic acne that erupts when I ovulate and sometimes just before my period. It can be challenging to find products that are effective, long term.

I love having these wipes around, they are such and handy and convenient way to remove my makeup. I like that the product doesn't contain harsh ingredients and it did not make my skin feel tight and over dry like many other products. I was already in the midst of a hormonal acne eruption but I can tell you that it didn't make it any worse and I didn't break out in other places.

I like that it didn't have a scent. I love scents in many things but I don't think it belongs in any type of cleanser or make up remover. The wipe worked great on the majority of my makeup but it did struggle with my waterproof mascara.

I really enjoyed the simple Replenishing Rick Moisturizer. It was light weight and non greasy. It absorbed quickly, like water. This product did not sting or irritate my skin and it did not create any further imbalances. It works well under my makeup and as a pm moisturizer. It is refreshing to have facial products without scents and artificial coloring.

I used the Simple Micellar Cleansing Water. The product seems to work well and I haven't had any adverse reactions. My face was a little shiny after use and it tingled slightly where I already had an existing breakout, but it didn't seem to aggravate it. I'm not used to the idea of not having to rinse off product when I clean my face. I'm not entirely sure how this would work long term, I will have to test it for a few more weeks to know for sure.

I do have to try out the products for longer to see what the overall balance is like throughout my entire cycle but so far, so good!
