Simple Hydrating Light Moisturiser
Advantages: Light, non greasy, moisturises well
Disadvantages: None for me
I have a very uneven skin tone whereas I have a greasy t-zone but my skin can also get quite dry at times too so I have to be careful what products I use. To find a moisturiser that combats the dryness without making my skin too greasy can be a bit of a chore at times. With working full time I don't get much time to shop around for skincare products and tend to just purchase whatever is available that looks appealing when doing my weekly shop in Tesco's.
There isn't a huge choice so last time I went for the Simple Hydrating Light moisturiser purely because it was there and wasn't too expensive. A 125ml bottle of this moisturiser tends to retail at around £1.99 which I don't think is too bad.
I squeezed a small amount onto my finger and massaged it into my skin. Immediately I wondered why I hadn't used this moisturiser before as I was really impressed with how light and non greasy it felt. As it felt so light, I found the moisturiser absorbed into the skin really easily and didn't leave any greasy, sticky residue on the skin afterwards. I really felt the whole moisturiser had been completely absorbed into my skin.
I was really impressed with how my skin felt afterwards. My skin felt really well moisturised and well hydrated but my skin didn't feel weighed down by the moisturiser as has happened with some moisturisers in the past and it really felt like my skin could still breathe. As it felt so light though, I was worried that the effects wouldn't last very long and my skin would feel either too dry or greasy within a couple of hours.
I needn't have worried though as the effects lasted as long as they needed too. I applied it first thing in the morning and by mid afternoon I felt I could have done with a little more but then I often feel this with any moisturiser I use so it did quite well in my opinion. My skin felt soft and smooth and looked alive which is great.
I really like the fact that this range of goods contains no ingredients that aren't necessary so it is great for sensitive skin which is perfect for me as some products have caused me some problems in the past so I would describe my skin as quite sensitive and if yours is the same, I can confirm that this moisturiser hasn't irritated my skin in the slightest so it really is quite pure. It does contain Vitamin E and pro-vitamin B5 which are vitamins both known to have positive effects on the skin.
Another great thing about this moisturiser is that you really do need just a miniscule amount to completely cover the whole facial area. The moisturiser is white and quite thin in consistency (though not too thin that it becomes almost watery) which means it's easy to spread across the skin so although the bottle is quite cheap anyway, you really do get value for money as a little goes a long way.
Overall, I hadn't really been tempted by this range previously and only chose this product at the time because there wasn't much choice for a decent, cheap moisturiser. However, I am really glad I did as it has had nothing but a positive effect on my skin. It combats the dryness but without making my skin feel heavy and greasy and the effects last a good while. It is quite natural so it is quite reassuring knowing you are not feeding your skin any unnecessary products in order to achieve healthy looking skin. On top of this, the moisturiser is well priced too and is available from most supermarkets and High Street pharmacies so it is really easy to get hold of.
I highly recommend this moisturiser as it leaves my skin looking and feeling healthy and doesn't cost the earth.
Summary: A really good moisturiser from the Simple range
