Hey there people! Today I’m just going to do a short review on Simple’s Hydrating Light Moisturiser.
The packaging is average: not particularly interesting, but not particularly boring, either. The top is a flip open and squeeze one, which can sometimes result in you getting too much of the product. This isn’t a big issue, though.
What does it claim to do?
The back of the bottle reads: ‘Our Hydrating Light Moisturiser is a perfect blend of multi-vitamins and skin-loving ingredients to keep your skin moisturised and pampered, and carries on working for 12 hours. Perfect for even sensitive skin.
I find that while it certainly doesn’t last for twelve hours, it is a nice and – true to the name – simple moisturiser. I think this moisturiser would mostly be for people with normal to combination skin because it isn’t especially moisturising. However, it might make your skin break out if you use it when you have oily skin, which we wouldn’t want! When I layered this on because I thought my skin was dry (or some other reason that wasn’t very sensible) I started to break out around my t-zone. As you might think, I didn’t use this product too much for a while after that!
One of my favourite things about this moisturiser is that it’s light and doesn’t leave your skin feeling clogged or heavy- it almost feels like you haven’t put it on, although your skin is more hydrated, of course. One of the downsides is that it doesn’t last very long, and even when it does last for a while it’s very hard to judge if you should put more on or leave it for later.
All in all, it’s just a nice, reliable but average moisturiser. Nothing special. You can buy it for £3.79 at Boots here!
