In this day and age of 10-step routines and with the popularity of never ending treatment variants, it is just fitting to do an appreciation post for a brand the keeps it simple.
This UK brand has arrived in the PH just a few years back and we just love it through and through. Simple is a skincare brand that does its job – no fuss, no pretentions, just plain and pure skincare solution for people with sensitive skin.
1. Simple Micellar toner and wipes
Micellar is the beauty potion our generation should be thankful for. It deeply cleanses the skin (and even removes makeup!!) and removes deep-seated dirt in just a few wipes. Simple Micellar Water may not smell as fragrant as your usual toners/cleansers, all because Simple use any artificial scents or colorings on their products.
The Verdict: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
It does its job well – it cleanses and it hydrates the skin. And no breakouts for us!
2. Simple Masks
These are our on-the-go masks. They are easy to use and they give the skin an instant glow effect. The masks come in 3 variants – for protection against pollution, for hydration; and for de-stressing a dull and dry skin.
The masks are well-soaked in serum, even with some extra for your body!
Tip: keep it on for around 15 minutes and you’re good to go!
Th Verdict: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
We love the feel and texture. Though it’s a bit sticky at first, the serum dries up smooth and silky after removing the mask. We’re yet to try the masks for continuous use, so we’re giving it 4 stars for now.
On first use: no itchiness or discomfort, no signs of breaking out
3. Simple Moisturizer
Filipinos are not used to moisturizers because of our climate, but we really need to hydrate our skin whether it’s too hot or too cold. The first step to fight skin aging is always to hydrate! Simple Moisturizer, again, does the job so simply well!
The verdict: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
It’s light and it’s not greasy. You feel the hydration in just a few minutes. Skin dries up with a satin finish!
No signs of breakouts so far!
Extra ⭐️⭐️⭐️ for not having any strong or distinct scent. This makes it perfect also for guys – and even girls who are very particular with fragrances on their skincare.
