I love moisturisers. Whether they be for face or body. I tend to buy whatever is on offer without a care as long as it's a decent brand and reasonable priced. This however is my best ever economical purchase. I was walking around Sainsbury's, perusing the toiletry aisles as usual and I needed some night time moisturiser for my face. I came across this.... Simple Regeneration Plus, Anti-Wrinkle Firming Cream, Advanced Anti-Ageing Formula (night) on a clear out at £2.50 instead of £12.99! Can't believe even now I only bought one I'm still kicking myself!
I've never bought a moisturiser so expensive usually before this and I expected alot! Did I get it? Read on!
Gold box telling me on the front what it is and who it is by (as I've stated). On the back tells me....'Simple Regeneration Plus Night Cream has been developed with an Advanced Anti-Ageing Formula which respects the needs of sensitive skin'.

On one side of the box I'm given a rundown of the ingredients and on the other side of the box I'm given 'The philosophy'... Since the 1960's Simple has been creating products dedicated to sensitive skin. All Simple products are 100% perfume and colour free, with no unnecessary additives. They contain active ingredients selected to care for the needs of sensitive skin... the secret is so Simple.
The Tube is a nice gold colour and is 50ml in size and recyclable. It opens at the bottom for ease of use and has a goldish/plastic screw on/off cap. On the front on the tube, again I'm told what it is and who it is by and on the back a little of what I've told you already and directions for use. All in all the packaging is really nice and very informative, hence why I've passed on the information I have!
Well as I said earlier I do expect alot more from something that most people pay £12.99 for and yes I got it. It's lovely! The cream itself comes out of the tube really easily. It isn't thick but like a creamy lotion texture and is white and shimmery but not overly so. There is a slight smell to it but nothing you could pick up on really. It glides on to the skin like a dream and you don't need loads to cover the face and neck at all. You don't have to rub it, it just sinks in with contact on the skin. It takes no time at all to disappear and doesn't feel sticky or gunky it just feels very hydrated and skin looks visibly brighter but it isn't greasy and uncomfortable you can just forget it's there.
It promises alot and it gives alot. Firstly let me tell you that most creams and lotions 'feed' my spots. This doesn't. I have had none since using it! It's really helped with my spot scarring too and it has helped with little scabby bits of skin where spots have resided and smooths that skin out. Also dark patches of my skin seem to have blended in more with my skin tone and pores appear reduced and whats more is I was going through a stage with blackheads appearing weekly and no new ones have formed! Them reasons alone are enough of a reason to purchase this, full price or not!
However... This also promises to 'visibly reduce fine lines and wrinkles, give noticabley, firmer skin and give visibly, brighter, more radiant skin'.
So does it work?...
Well yes actually it does that too! I'm not going to say I think this will iron out a wrinkly face. It wont. I don't think its strong enough to do that (if any would!), but this on my laughter lines, frown lines and smokers lines plays a blinder! My small lines around my eyes have all but vanished onto thin air, my frown lines are about 60% reduced (over a week period) and my lines around my mouth (through smoking, and not bad in the first place) have gone completely! Yes skin looks brighter and more hydrated in general and yes skin feels a bit firmer too!
This on someone who has a few smallish problems is lovely and its perfect for me and I'm in my mid 30's. It's great at not clogging and congesting pores whilst doing most of what it promises and I do have problem skin i.e getting wrinkles and still getting teenage like spots! For me putting on heavy, greasy creams is a no no! So this really is a great solution. I'm really pleased with it.
Simple to use and simply carries out most of its promises.
Can be found in all good supermarkets and chemists at the usual price of £12.99.
5 stars for the price I paid and for what it did for me.
Overall rating has to be 3 stars due to price and doesnt work on deep wrinkles.
