The Sugar Spotlight crew have been keeping busy putting Simple skincare through its paces. They've been testing the travel-sized Kind to Skin Range, which features Refreshing Facial Wash Gel, Soothing Facial Toner, Hydrating Light Moisturiser and Eye Make-up Remover. You've heard what some of our BellaSugar readers have had to say about these little bite-size treats, and now here's some more reviews! Check out what Meaghan and co. had to say about the four products . . .
"My first impression of Simple was that the packaging is clean and has an eco-friendly feel to it. The product descriptions specify the natural goodness of the ingredients and the fact that there is no animal testing (very important to me as an avid animal lover!). The makeup remover thoroughly removed my waterproof mascara after a couple of applications, leaving my lashes feeling soft and light. The cleanser and toner renewed my skin, with my cheek and nose areas looking particularly clear. The moisturiser has a very lightweight texture, making it perfect under makeup. This four-step Simple regime has left my skin softer and clearer than it has been in weeks. As a user of expensive skincare brands, it's refreshing to find out that there is a skincare brand out there that is just as good, if not better, and a quarter of the price! Simple-ly beautiful!" — Meaghan
Check out more Simple skincare reviews . . ."Simple skincare has left my skin feeling soft and smooth. The moisturiser is light and absorbed quickly, which I really liked and only a small amount of it is needed. The cleanser is gentle and the toner is a pleasure to use. I really like these products and would definitely use them again." — Suzanne
"My favourite product was the face wash. It didn't have those thick cleansing beads so it didn't "feel" like it was actually doing anything, but my face felt extremely cleansed afterwards. I was really surprised as I normally use really expensive products which produce the same effect. I'd definitely use this again. The makeup remover was also good for removing makeup, but it wasn't successful in getting off thick waterproof mascara. The moisturiser was light and handy to carry around in my bag and good to use just as a daily cream to whip on after the gym or underneath my foundation." — Amy
"I loved the gel face wash! It got rid of all excess makeup and pollution from my face and left my skin feeling really firm which was surprising. I also loved the toner and the eye makeup remover. Sometimes I find some eye makeup removers can burn the eyes and need a lot of rubbing to get rid of excess mascara, but this one was great!" — Alexandra
"The eye makeup remover works effectively to remove all traces of eye makeup with a gentle cleansing action. It is gentle on the skin, not irritating to the eyes and free from animal-derived ingredients. The face wash gel needs only a small amount for a thorough cleanse to the face and the toner is packed with vitamins to clarify and leaves the face feeling revitalised — ideal for sensitive skin. The moisturiser was quickly absorbed and only a small amount is required to leave the face feeling soft and replenished." — Tracy
"I particularly loved using the soothing skin toner. The toner is light and refreshing and it didn't dry out my skin like most toners do. The face wash was fine to start with but then it did make my skin a little dry. The eye makeup remover it was gentle and effective. It didn't sting my eyes or irritate my skin, however it took a couple of times to completely take all of my makeup off. What's great about it though is that there's no overpowering smell and it doesn't leave an oily residue. My skin took to the moisturiser really well and it felt completely rejuvenated and hydrated." — Polly
"I do have mildly sensitive skin and felt the gel cleanser tingling a little in more sensitive areas on my face, resulting in redness. I definitely liked the eye makeup remover though, as it didn’t sting around my extremely sensitive eye area like other brands. The moisturiser was a good balance as well, not too oily and not too watery. The toner I would probably not buy as it made my skin feel tight and wasn't soothing at all." — Nerida
"The Simple products don’t come in fancy bottles and they don’t smell of exotic fragrances but they certainly do the job. The cleanser is a basic gel that adequately cleans the skin. The toner is gentle and great for sensitive skin. It left my face hydrated and balanced. The moisturiser was fast-absorbing, lightweight and a perfect primer for makeup. I would definitely buy it again. I was disappointed with the makeup remover though which stung my eyes after removing mascara." — Wendy
"The eye makeup remover was very effective and didn't irritate my sensitive eyes. The facial wash was very cleansing and soothing; it foamed well from very little product. The toner felt astringent but I liked the texture of the moisturiser, though it was a bit difficult to get out of the rigid bottle! It penetrated my upper layers of skin easily and made my skin feel smooth and soft. Overall, the products made my pores seem clearer and my skin feel more even and soft." — Alice
