I’ve been taking out some time to myself from blogging the past couple of months. Having just moved back to Hamilton for study, starting work and gaining new responsibilities, life has been super hectic. I’ve also been taking more time to take care of my skin, with Simplicite*. It’s been almost 4 months since I last posted about Simplicite. I’ve had ample time to try out some of their skincare and see great results which I really wanted to share with you!
Simplicite reached out to me to ask about my cruelty-free skincare regime after reading my blog. I had been having trouble finding good quality, cruelty-free skincare that worked well for my skin. They very kindly sent me the three product below to trial out and at the same time revolutionised my skincare regime! My skin has never been so well taken care of as it has these past 4 months. My skin is Normal/Dry so I want to talk about how these products have helped me to have softer and more moisturised skin.
Hydrating Floral Toning Lotion
This is step 1 for me after washing my face in the morning. The Hydrating Floral Toning Lotion is a really refreshing facial toner which evens out the pH levels of your face. I love the beautiful floral scent it has and how fresh and tight my skin feels after using this toner. The toner contains fresh rose petal extract which reduces inflammation, lemon balm which calms, soothes and firms skin, and orange blossom which tones and helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles. There is no alcohol in the solution which means it is less drying on skin than other toners on the market.
Rosewood Face Oil
The Rosewood Face Oil has to be my favourite of all the face oils I have tried. According to the info on the website the Rosewood Face Oil is perfect for normal to dry skin (hello my face!!) and I would have to agree. I use about 2 pumps morning and night on my face. Most days I don’t even use a moisturiser on top of this as it keeps my skin hydrated enough. This is lucky because the reason I don’t use a moisturiser is mainly because I forget. (I do own a great one though and you can find it here!) Just like all the Simplicite products I have tried, the Rosewood Face Oil smells beautiful while mending and moisturising your skin. I have used this product every day, even when I forget everything else. The amount used speaks for itself in the credibility of this product, as I only have a fifth of the oil left! I really need to buy a new one soon!
Results Lift Gel
The last product I have been trying out is the Simplicite Results Lift Gel. I use a couple of pumps all over my face and down my neck. It is said to help with reducing fine lines as well as brightening the complexion. The formula is very lightweight and silky. A couple of time I forgot that I had already applied it and ended up putting some more on! The main ingredients are Rosehip (to repair damaged skin tissue), Cornsilk (to stimulate tissue renewal) and Rice Bran (contains anti-ageing oxidants).
Here are some before and after photos!
Considering I’ve been sick for the last couple of months, my skin is still looking and feeling pretty amazing.
I use the products in order of how I have listed them here on the blog as it works best. In the package I was sent, this was the recommended order of use. I do this routine twice a day, in the morning and just before I got to bed. If you would like an updated skincare routine be sure to comment below!
