Simple Skin Care – Cleanser and Toner

To be completely honest, I have only recently started a skin care routine. I used to just remove my make up with face wipes, not realising the harsh effects that they can have on your skin. I use the Simple Kind to Skin Purifying Lotion and the Simple Kind to Skin Facial Toner. I have heard a lot of people say that they don’t use the toner and just use the cleanser by itself. I use both because I don’t have very oily skin, nor do I have very dry skin. So using both is more effective for my skin type. This may vary for your skin type. I think that simple skincare is great, although it has both pros and cons.

Simple Kind to Skin Purifying Lotion

This is an amazing cleanser and is really good for removing make up. I put it on cotton wool pads and rub off my make up as I would if I was using facial wipes. It does take quite a bit longer, but it leaves your skin feeling much softer. It doesn’t sting my eyes at all, and I don’t get the red patchiness that I get with the wipes. The only problem I have with this product is that it takes a while to absorb into my skin and until it does my face feels a bit sticky. However, I use the toner right afterwards and it gets rid of the stickiness.

Simple Kind to Skin Soothing Facial Toner

I find that this product is perfect to use right after using the lotion because it gets rid of any stickiness and leaves my skin feeling refreshed and replenished. Again with the application, I just pour a small amount onto a cotton wool pad and rub it over my face.


I think that both of these products are great and I would definitely re-purchase them. They are also cheap and affordable and are always in the 2 for 1 offer in boots. I think I will definitely be purchasing other Simple products and I will review them on this blog.
