So I was thinking that quite often I write about higher end skincare but not so much about my favourite budget skincare brands. I was recently mooching around Boots (as you do!) looking for a new moisturiser have just scraped our every last scrap of my pot of Origins Ginzing when I came across the Simple Skincare stand. I wasn't looking to spend a huge amount of money and with summer coming along I wanted to pick up a lightweight moisturiser which I could pop on under a lightweight base. I have loved Simple skincare for a long time and there Simple Kind To Skin+ range was just what I was looking for. Of course Boots had their usual 3 for 2 offer on so of course I had to pick up three products.
The first thing I picked up was the Illuminating Radiance Cream as I do love a radiant, dewy look to my skin so this sounded right up my street! It is lightweight on your skin which is perfect for summer (and holidays!) and the light reflecting particles in the cream give a subtle glow. I have been using it in the mornings under my make up or if I fancy a barefaced day at home it is perfect alone. It also has SPF 15 which is a bonus.
I also picked up the Radiance Brightening Cleansing Wipes which although they do get a bad rep sometimes they do have their place. Travelling on a plane being one of them. Your skin tends to get so dehydrated from flying face wipes are a godsend for refreshing your skin.
Lastly the Protecting Moisture Cream is a bargain of a product for £3.99. Usually if you are looking for a lightweight moisturiser with a higher SPF you are looking at about £50 for a bottle. It is great for combination skin leaving it feeling moisturised but not at all oily and it isn't 'heavy' at all on your skin. What I love about all the Simple products is that they are great for sensitive skin too. My skin is sometimes a little temperamental but I have noticed it seems to be clear and happier since I have brought these moisturisers into my routine.
