Let’s talk Simple…

Skincare

It’s been awhile since I’ve shared a post about my Skincare Routine. If you’ve followed my journey you know how I struggled in finding the best facial products for my sensitive skin.

There are some products from Simple that I no longer use, while some stayed and have discovered something new.

First, let me re-introduce those that have stayed.

 

When my skin is feeling dull and needed some exfoliating, SIMPLE EXFOLIATING FACIAL WIPES is my answer. I love how gentle this wipes are and it definitely exfoliates my skin well leaving it clean and clear again. It has a resealable pack to keep the wipes moist, very convenient for travelling and it smells really clean and fresh. It comes with 25 wipes in one pack and this retails for $4.78 at Walmart.

Simple goodness

2 added vitamins: Pro-Vitamin B5 known to help restore, soften and smooth; Vitamin E known to moisturize and improve skin condition

1 skin-loving ingredient: Aloe vera known to soothe and condition

  • No dyes
  • No artificial perfumes
  • No harsh irritants to upset skin
  • Dermatologist tested
  • Ophthalmologist tested
  • Safe for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers
  • Hypoallergenic
  • Non-comedogenic

 

To keep my skin hydrated and moisturized, SIMPLE REPLENISHING RICH MOISTURIZER is my go-to product. It’s non-sticky or thick in consistency and it absorbs easily on your skin which is great. It does have a “not-so flattering” scent but it’s tolerable because the smell doesn’t stay on your skin that long nor it lingers which is good. I just apply a dime sized amount onto my face and down to my neck to balance the moisture and that’s it! I am ready to apply my make-up. This retails for $5.97 at Walmart.

Simple goodness

1 added vitamin: Pro-Vitamin B5 known to help restore, soften and smooth

3 skin-loving ingredients: Chamomile known to help gently soften and soothe; Glycerin hydrates and nourishes;Geranium

  • No dyes
  • No artificial perfumes
  • No harsh irritants to upset skin
  • Dermatologist tested
  • Hypoallergenic
  • Non-comedogenic

I’m sure sure you’ve seen this SIMPLE MICELLAR CLEANSING WATER a few times on my posts and this Micellar water is great! It feels comfortable on the skin, it doesn’t feel sticky or “yucky”. It cleanses and keeps my skin hydrated too. Just like the moisturizer, it does have a slight scent to it as well (light earthy smell) it’s hard to describe but again it doesn’t bother me because the smell goes away so quickly. This retails for $5.97 at Walmart and the size of this bottle is pretty good too for what it’s worth.

Simple goodness:

Triple Purified Water: Our purest possible water to minimize potential for irritation from particles or contaminants that can irritate skin.  

Vitamin B3: Known to restore, soften and smooth skin. It’s especially great for those with dry skin.

Vitamin C: A water soluble antioxidant vitamin for skin.

Hexylene Glycol: Helps dissolve makeup and kindly conditions the skin 

And last but not the least, let me introduce the newest member of my Simple family.

I’ve used this for a few months now and have repurchased this several times. I love this SIMPLE MICELLAR MAKEUP REMOVER WIPES more than the SIMPLE MICELLAR CLEANSING WATERI like that I don’t need to use cotton pads (I get skin irritation sometimes if I use cotton pads) and the wipes itself is very smooth. The scent is more pleasant than the water and I don’t find this messy too. Very convenient to carry around and it has a resealable pack that helps the wipes moist all the time. It removes my make-up easily in just one wipe (I mean if you have a full on makeup then I guess you need more than one) it feels really light and fresh on the skin. It consist of 25 wipes and similar to the ones mentioned above, this cost me $5.97 at Walmart.

Simple goodness:

SKIN LOVING INGREDIENTS

  • Vitamin B – Known to restore, soften and smooth skin.
  • Vitamin E – Known to improve skin’s condition by replenishing and moisturizing
  • Triple-purified water – Is our purest possible water, that helps minimize the risk of irritations.
  • No alcohol, no oil – Means that skin feels clean and hydrated, not dry or greasy.
  • No artificial perfume or color – That might upset your skin making it perfect for even sensitive skin.
  • Micelles – Our clever cleansing bubbles which are smart enough to attract and lift make-up and impurities out of your skin without leaving it dry or tight.

What adores me the most with Simple Skincare products is that, they are very gentle on my super sensitive skin. It is Hypoallergenic, it also consists of some vitamins to keep your skin healthy and smooth and they are made from all natural ingredients which is safe for everyone to use (I am not concerned about the scent as it’s very tolerable, I’m sure to some the smell is nothing but I am just very sensitive to anything that’s why I noticed it immediately) AND of course.. very affordable too and can be found at any drugstores near you. 🙂

 

How about you? have you tried any products from Simple?

May Favorites!

Where did the month of May go? I’m sure you’ve asked the same exact question right? Anyway, the good thing is that summer is here and May Favorites is now happening so stay tuned!

I have been very minimal last month, in other words (LAZY) haha. This might not be a very interesting post but hey! this products got me through the entire month with a smile. 🙂

Now, let’s get started.

  • 2015-08-6--18-52-10Simple Cleansing Micellar Water – At first I didn’t like it but the longer I used it, I started loving it. It cleanse really well and the best part is, it doesn’t break me out.
  • Simple Replenishing Rich Moisturizer – Surprise Surprise!!! What else can I say about this moisturizer?? hhmmppp.. THE BEST! ❤
  • Ole Henriksen Sheer Transformation (oil free perfecting creme repairs skin with vitamin C complex, licorice root and pea extract. – I found this product in the “isle of doom” at Sephora as I was looking for a product that will help eliminate or reduce this pimple scar on my face. I’m not 100% sure if it did help but I noticed a difference on the spots so I thought to just continue using them. I just got the sample size because I was worried that it might irritate my skin, gladly this creme is very gentle and I like it. 🙂
  • Glam Glow Youthmud (Tinglexfoliate Treatment) – My Savior, a Must Have, Holy Grail. This product played a huge part on my face. Because of this, I stopped getting “sparkles”, the moment I can feel that a pimple is popping-up I dab a small amount on the spot and leave it overnight. The next morning, the monster is gone! I am so glad I found this Glam Glow Youthmud. I got the sample size again just to try it out and it lasted me for months since I don’t use this on my entire face. THIS PRODUCT IS A MIRACLE!

  • Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge – you guys know what this is.. 🙂
  • MAC “BlushBaby” Sheertone Blush – This is a re-discovered product and I have been loving it ever since we met again.
  •  Maybelline “Fit Me” Pressed Powder – I’m killing this pressed powder to death. I love how it kept me shine-free all throughout the day and very very lightweight too which is good.
  • Maybelline “Fit Me” Concealer – This concealer is great in covering some unwanted scars/spots on my face. I love how it feels on my skin and most importantly, it doesn’t break me out.
  • 2015-08-6--19-01-44NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in the shade Milan – This shade is good for everyday wear, it’s matte, non-drying, smells really good (yummy) and can be worn during the day or even at night.
  • Covergirl Clump Crusher by lashblast Mascara – Another item that I’ve been reaching a lot for this past month. It’s really a clump crusher, though it’s not volumizing but they do keep the curl. It’s another product that is good for everyday wear but I don’t recommend this for night time or if you are going for a glam look.
  • Carmex Original Lip Balm – Please note that as long as you follow my posts, you will forever see this lip balm. You all know that this is another item that I CANNOT LIVE WITHOUT.

Let me squeeze a non-beauty item in this post. This two items below have been my go-to footwear since Spring arrived. They are just so comfortable, easy to wear and can be paired with anything. I’ve had this items for over a year now and they still look great. The sandals are from NY&Co. while the “loafers” are from Nine West. They both have a hint of gold on them as I love gold so much. You will see me wearing these babies a lot for sure.

Beauty Haul!?!

FotorCreated

Another week has gone by and what comes with it is a beauty haul. I bought a few items that caught my eyes and I hope you’ll find this post an interesting one.

So, here they are. Continue reading “Beauty Haul!?!”

My Skin Care Routine!

It’s been a month since I changed my skincare routine and used products that is very convenient for everyone to find. Most of these products can be found in your local drugstores and is very affordable too.

Since I used the Simple Skin Care Products, I’ve noticed a huge difference on my face and especially on my pimples. I can assure you all that these products are awesome and they are very gentle on any skin types.

First, I start my morning with the Simple Moisturizing Facial Wash.

Simple Moisturizing Facial Wash thoroughly cleanses your skin, removing oil, dirt, and other impurities.

  • 100% soap free wash leaves skin cleansed and revived
  • With added Pro-Vitamin B5 and Vitamin E; Contains skin-loving Bisabolol
  • Suitable for all skin types, especially sensitive skin
  • No Dyes, No Artificial Perfumes and No Harsh Irritants that can upset your skin

Then followed with the Simple Smoothing Facial Scrub.

  • Gently exfoliates and cleans skin
  • Brightens and evens skin texture

Next, to keep my skin soft and smooth I apply the Simple Protecting Light Moisturizer.  I use this before I apply my concealer or my foundation. It helps dehydrate my skin and makes my makeup look flawless too.

  • 2 vitamins: pro-vitamin B5, vitamin E
  • No harsh irritants that can upset your skin

As soon as I arrived home from work or after wearing any makeup on, I always use the Simple Facial Cleansing Wipes. This wipes is tough on make-up and gentle on skin. And to make it even cleaner. I use the Simple Micellar Cleanser Water, and yes! they do a great job in removing all makeup and dirt.

Now, let’s talk about a non-Simple Skin Care products.

I bought Ole HenriksenSheer Transformation in their sample size to hopefully clear some of the pimple marks on my face. I am not sure if they are working great but I did notice some changes on my skin or shall I say on my pimple marks.

Research results:
In a consumer use study on 52 respondents:
– 96% said the product softens skin and smooths uneven texture
– 95% said their skin looks brighter and more radiant
– 86% said that product treats discoloration/hyperpigmentation

My pimple savior… ❤

I bought the GLAMGLOW YOUTHMUD™ TINGLEXFOLIATE TREATMENT because I heard so many people talking about this product. While I was at Sephora over a month ago, this sample size GlamGlow Youthmud caught my attention.

A lady from Sephora recommended it as well. Instead of using this product all over my face, I’ve decided to just use this only on my pimple. Guess what? it cured some of my sparkles for sure. My right cheek is now pimple free, though you can still see some marks but I’ll take it rather than seeing a huge ugly looking red monster that sparkles all over.

Now, before I go to bed and after cleaning my face with my Simple products, I just dab a tiny amount of this product on my pimples and let it stay overnight. I am not sure if this is even advisable but it works for me.. what can we do?? 😛

This mud mask leaves skin noticeably radiant and glowing. It works with the body’s natural moisturizing collagen to provide gentle resurfacing exfoliation and helps to leave skin smoother, brighter, and softer. While providing tighter skin texture and tighter pores, it provides a more youthful appearance and absorbs impurities without removing natural oils.

Research results:
Based on consumer trials:
After 1 day of use:
– 97% agreed it left their skin smoother, brighter, and softer
– 91% agreed it brightened their dull skin
– 94% agreed it provided gentle surface exfoliation

After using it 3 times during a 7-day period:
– 100% agreed it brightened their dull skin
– 97% agreed it provided gentle surface exfoliation

So yeah! there you go.. 🙂

Mini “April” Haul!

As you all know, I made a promise that I won’t be buying any makeup for the month of April. However, if you have been following my blog posts lately then you also know that I am trying to find the perfect product to get rid of my “Sparkles”. Facial Products.. (Failed and Passed)

Just recently, I’ve been using the Simple Facial Wipes and Simple Moisturizer on my face (of course! where else would I use it right?haha). Anyway, since I’ve started using these products, my sparkles are looking better. However, I still have one big annoying red monster looking pimple on my face that no matter how many concealer or foundation I use, it still shows up and greet everyone. But, these Simple products are really great that I can really say I’m already loving it.

I bought the Simple Moisturizing Facial Wash just a week ago and I have been using it since day one.

2015-12-4--00-25-28Simple Moisturizing Facial Wash

  • No dyes, artificial perfumes, or harsh chemicals that can upset skin
  • Gently and thoroughly cleanses skin
  • Vitamin B5 and vitamin E known to replenish and moisturize skin
  • Made with bisabolol known to calm and soothe
  • Dermatologist tested for sensitive skin
  • $5.97
Earlier today, I’ve decided to get two more products that I’m really hoping will forever keep my “sparkles” away. I immediately reached for the Simple Smoothing Facial Scrub. I’m excited to try this and hopefully, I will be happy with the result.
2015-12-4--00-24-50Simple Smoothing Facial Scrub

  • Gently exfoliates and cleans skin
  • Brightens and evens skin texture
  • Free of dyes, artificial perfumes, or harsh chemicals that can upset
  • Made with vitamin B5, vitamin E, and rice granules that soften skin
  • Dermatologist tested
  • $5.97
This next product has been hiding from me since forever, I’ve been looking for this for awhile now and finally I found them today! (thank God for Target..) I was really planning of buying one on-line but I didn’t feel like paying for the shipping is worth it. So I guess, “Patience is truly a Virtue” right? 🙂 I’ve heard so much positive words about this product so I wanted to give it a try. I’ve also seen “Ingrid Nilsen” one of my fave YouTube beauty guru talked about this so it made me want to try this even more.

2015-12-4--00-30-08

Simple Micellar Cleanser Water

  • Thoroughly cleanses: Removing make-up, dirt, impurities and unclogging pores.
  • Instantly hydrates skin: Made with Triple Purified Water, skin loving ingredients and multi-vitamins, instantly boosts skin hydration by 90%!
  •  No residue: Applied with a cotton round, Simple Micellar Cleanser Water leaves skin feeling fresh and revitalized, no rinsing required!
  • $6.99

I thought maybe by using the same line of skin care products will also help my “pimple” problem so I’m really crossing my fingers on this one and hopefully I will be able to find the best skin care products for my sensitive skin.

2015-12-4--00-29-21Now, let’s move on to another item I purchased today and this time it’s not going to be a skin care item but instead a t-shirt that I’m sure a lot of us would agree! 😛 I wasn’t really thinking of buying any clothing item but this t-shirt was just too good to ignore. If only I can wear this every single day..haha

For those who are interested where I got this, I bought this from Walmart and it only cost $7.99 (isn’t that a bargain??)

2015-12-4--00-26-20Last item of the day is this really unique overall and kinda midi-square pants that is just so comfortable to wear. I was hesitant of getting this item but when I saw the price $13.99 it made me want to try them on. The moment I put them on “waahhhh” SOLD! My hubby liked it and I did too. I can’t wait to wear this and all I need to find is a cute shoes to match this “dressy looking overall midi-square pants” looking dress??hahaha I honestly don’t know how to describe this.. I hope the photo is clear enough for you to see what I’m trying to say.. 🙂

2015-12-4--03-18-44

please don’t mind the shoes.. haha.. I know the shoes didn’t do justice on the “dressy” thingy.. hehehe
