My Skincare Routine; It’s Simple

To a certain extent I believe that what you pay is what you get, with foundations I like to stick to high end brands that I know won’t break me out or irritate my sensitive skin. However, at the end of the day when it comes to scraping that slap off I wanted something gentle, cheap and effective that didn’t require the harsh scrubbing effort of my I-know-I-should-take-off-my-make-up-but-I-can’t-be-bothered-make-up-wipes.


I have combination skin and suffer from both dry patches and blemishes, life isn’t fair. Anyway, Simple says that they believe in goodness and so there are no unnecessary or harsh chemicals in any of their products so they won’t upset your skin. I was in awe of the diverse range of products they offered, I gravitated towards anything that said ‘moisturising’ or ‘replenishing’. I’m an advertisers dream, such a sucker for packaging. Here’s the routine..!simple1

Firstly, I scrub my face all over with this gentle moisturising face wash, it’s got teeny weeny beads in it. I work it into a lather in my hands and work in to my face then wash off, simples!simple4
Next, if I still have any make up on, I use the Purifying cleanser all over, followed by the eye make-up remover (this is amazingly gentle, I have used lots as you can see!) and then I finish off my using the Soothing Toner. simple3
My face feels so smooth and much softer after using this combo, the toner prepares the way for perfect moisturising and gets rid of any left over makeup or cleanser on my skin.


I end with a special replenishing moisturiser for dry skin, this has quite a thin consistency so I use it in the morning because it goes well under my make-up. I need a moisturiser with a bit more to it for the night time. I haven’t got a bad word to say about these products, they really are fantastic and I love the green and white packaging. This whole routine is so affordable, around £3 each item I think in any Boots, Superdrug or Tesco’s, you can probably find them cheaper in wilkies or something like that 🙂 more money for make up!
