Review: Simple Skincare Line


I have drastically changed my beauty regimen over the past 2 years.  When my husband was diagnosed with Leukemia we made an effort to kick needless chemicals our of homes and our lives.  That meant educating ourselves about the chemicals in our cleaning products and our personal care products.

In addition to changing my routine for health-sake, I have also made some changes for time-sake.  Being a mom of two littles means I don’t have a lot of time for primping. (:

I wear minimal make-up.  On days I have to go to work I tend to wear a little more so I might wear foundation, mascara, and eye shadow.  Other days I wear only mascara.  However, regardless of if I am wearing make up or not, I try to take care of my skin by washing it and applying a moisturizer.  I’ll be honest and say I’m not always diligent.  But, as I’ve gotten older I’m beginning to realize I should be taking better care of my skin.

When I buy personal care products I look for products that are free of perfumes and “fragrance.”  So, when I was asked to review Simple, a line of skincare products for sensitive skin I was hesitant.  However, after hearing that this line was the UK’s #1 facial skincare brand and that it contained no dyes, artificial perfumes, and had no harsh irritants that can upset skin, I was ready to give it a whirl and learn a little more about the brand.

I bought 3 products from my local Walmart- refreshing face wash gel, eye make up remover, and Vital Vitamin Day Cream with SPF 15. There are other products available and you can see the whole line up on the Simple website.  They are all very affordable, falling between $5.99 and $12.99.  I was able to pick up all of these items for under $25.

I really have enjoyed the day cream.  I am REALLY picky about facial lotions and creams because I hate for them to feel greasy.  This was not greasy at all and actually felt good!  And, the facial wash gel is going to last an eternity because it only takes a little (I mean VERY little) to do the job!  I have been pleased with the line and will continue to use it and purchase it for my problem skin.

    You obviously haven’t read the ingredients in this product line! It is full of parabens, carcinogens, and chemicals! Saying something is “simple,” doesn’t make it so! Hope you’ll take a second look…

      Louise,
      Navigating personal care items is still a big question mark for me. I’ve visited Skin Deep but going to the store creates a whole problem of its own when I go to select something. If you have tried and true products that you like, I’d love your thoughts. Any guidance on this topic is appreciated!

It was so bad I had to put hydrocortisone cream on my face and take two benadrly pills! Wasn’t so SIMPLE!!

    • Denisesawyer says:

      Oh Jennifer! I am so sorry you had a reaction. I wonder what you were allergic to? This definitely sounds like an allergic reaction!
      Sorry for your experience!

  3. Hi Denise,

    I am a fairly recent new user to the Simple line, and I personally like the products and have had positive experiences of my own. Each individual should know skin type and experiences are not always the same and will vary. As with anything, it’s what works for “you”. The sole purpose for this comment was prompted by your cool, calm, and collected responses to the previous posts. I commend the fact you were so respectfully welcoming and positive in your responses. Job well done. Best of luck to you and your family.

    Personally, I haven’t had a whole lot of luck in the skin care department. Benzoyle Peroxide, actually products with that in it give me the same reaction that Jennifer had but I’ve had great luck with the simple care line. My skin is soft and feels refreshed. I have no complaints other than that I do not own more of the simple line products!
