…. with Simple Skincare.
I’m ashamed to say, Simple Skincare is a brand I have passed by for many years. I used it as a teenager and have regularly changed brands since then and now I’m in a very comfortable skincare routine. So it’s not often I find a product to rave about, that is until I tried the new Kind to Eyes Nourishing Eye Make-up Remover from Simple!
I use Blinc Mascara, which has a formula where the liquid wraps itself around each eyelash and kind of clings on to create an illusion of thicker longer lashes. It has a great effect but I find it notoriously difficult to shift when I’m taking off my make-up and *blush* often just leave it on overnight because I can’t remove it! (Yes I know I’m bad!)
In the past I’ve used Gatineau Floracil Gentle Cleansing Lotion For Eyes, Clinique’s Take The Day Off Make Up Remover for Lids, Lashes & Lips and Bloom Gentle Eye Make-up Remover, all of which are higher end products and therefore quite pricey. But they are also all a liquid formulation and I would normally swear by any of these. However, I have to say I’m very impressed with Simple’s cream formulation.
It goes onto your cotton pad as normal and after sweeping it over my eye for a few seconds, all traces of make-up (and mascara!) had disappeared. Also another effect of a cream is that it’s truly nourishing to the eye area. It feels creamy and any residue on my skin felt like a light eye cream and not drying or tightening at all, which I’ve sometimes experienced with other brands. Best of all is that it doesn’t sting, removed even my waterproof mascara and it has that clean smell you get with all Simple products and it’s suitable for even sensitive skins. The packaging for the Kind to Eyes Nourishing Eye Make-Up Remover is a slimline white container which is nicer than how I remember Simple from my teenage years and it costs only £3.49 – bargain!
Simple Kind to Skin has also just launched three more products into it’s range including a Pore Minimising Toning Cleanser to leave skin feeling refreshed and clarified, Vital Vitamin Day cream and Vital Vitamin Night cream. I tried the whole Simple Skincare Kind to Skin range for a week in place of my normal skincare products and was on the whole impressed.
The only downside was with the day cream. I found my T-zone became shiny after a few hours so if you’ve got very oily skin this might not be right for you, but this may just be down to the fact I have combination skin So if you do use it and you have combination skin like me, you could adjust how much cream you put on accordingly. The day cream sinked in quickly and left me with a nice even base to put my make-up on and the night cream feels very rich and lavish for an inexpensive brand. The thing I noticed most after using the Simple range was how soft my skin was and much brighter, a real contrast to how my skin was before.
I would give Simple Skin Care – Kind to Skin range 7/10 and the Simple Kind to Eyes Nourishing Eye Make-Up Remover 9/10. Overall they are a great price, good for all skin types and widely available. It really feels like you are putting goodness back into your skin. I’ll defintely be stocking up on the eye make-up remover – it’s my new beauty must!
