Skin Care...Simples!

So a few weeks back I wrote a post about my non existent skin care regime and vowed I would change my far too low maintenance ways and try out some products.

Recently I have spent a lot of time flicking through fashion and beauty magazines, purely for work purposes of course, and I kept seeing the same few products cropping up over and over again. So I thought I'd give them a try...

These were Simple Moisturising Facial Wash, Hydrating Light Moisturiser and Spotless Skin Quick Fix Cleansing Wipes.

This is a really creamy face wash apposed to the more gel like facial washes and feels really nice to use, it didn't give me that fresh face feeling that I was used to from the Clinique facial wash but I did feel clean. I have noticed a difference in the balance of my skin and I do feel that my skin is less oily than it was. Previously by about mid day I could feel that my skin was becoming oily and it didn't feel particularly nice to touch. With this product I have found that my skin stays oil free for most of the day. I would give this product a 4/5 as I like that instant fresh tingly feeling after use and didn't quite get that.

Simple Hydrating Light Moisturiser - £3.79 (Boots)
I was really happy with this moisturiser, before now I have not been a regular user of moisturiser and the ones I have used have not convinced me to keep it up. However this one was a nice surprise, the first time I used it I did not expect it to be as hydrating as it was and put quite a bit on. This meant that it took ages to soak into my skin and I felt quite sticky for a while, you really do only need a small amount with this product as it spreads really evenly and a little goes a long way! Once you get the amount right it soaks into the skin really quickly meaning you don't have to wait a long time before putting your make up on, which is a bonus as I am always running late.I would give this product 5/5 as I feel it did exactly what is said on the tin!

Simple Spotless Skin Quick Fix Cleansing Wipes - £3.85 (Boots)
This is the product I had the highest hopes for as if you have read my previous post you will know that spots are a real issue for me. The product claims to give results from day 1, I wouldn't go so far as to say I saw immediate results but I have noticed a difference. I used to get clusters of pimples as well as the larger yucky looking spots, I have found since using this product I don't get the small pimples so much anymore which makes my skin look and feel a lot clearer. I am still getting the odd larger spot but I didn't expect that to change over night as I know there are many other things that contribute to spots. These wipes are great for removing make up and say they even remove waterproof mascara, I don't use waterproof so I can't tell you if this is true or not but they definitely work well on the normal stuff. If I had one wish it would be that they were a little wetter as after a particularly long day it would be nice to get a little more use out of one sheet. So I would give these wipes a 3.5/5, I was happy but not convinced.

As I was not completely convinced I don't think my serach is over. To be continued...
