Simple Skincare Haul

by - 17:51:00

Isn't it funny how you go to the supermarket because you need to stock the fridge, but end up with a basket full of beauty instead. Well, that was me today. First things first, if you're a fan of Simple, then Tesco is your best friend at the moment. Pretty much all of the Simple Skincare line is on offer at 3 for £5. Bargains don't really come much better than that do they? 

Safe to say I caved and picked up some bits to try. Here's what I got..

Before you even say it, I know I'm not the target market for anti-ageing products at the moment. Wrinkles and all that jazz do not keep me up at night, but out of the line, these two really grabbed me. At £4.99 each these are bargains anyways, but three of these for £5 is incredible. These are the Age Resist Day and Night creams

Most of the Simple line is quite basic, as the name would suggest. With the Age Resist line, they've added a few extra ingredients to give more mature skins a helping hand. The two that caught my attention were the Mushroom extract and Oat-Beta Glucan. The Mushroom is supposed to help refine the skin tone, and the Oat-Beta Glucan is supposed to help reduce sensitivity. 

My skin tone isn't in the best shape at the moment, so anything that can help with that is a big plus. I very much doubt the concentration is enough to make a significant difference but we will see. In terms of reducing sensitivity, I am all about that right now. My skin is going through a phase where most things seem to freak it out. If I can find a way to halt this, brilliant. Like I said before though, we will see. 

These two products are completely new to me, so I'm excited to see how my skin reacts and if they really work. Expect an update in 3ish months. I'm hoping to have great news because the price point on these is fantastic. 

To make up my three, I opted for an oldie but a goodie. I've used, and enjoyed the Soothing Eye Balm (£3.49) in the past. It's a solid product that hydrates without a hint of grease. I've been using Clinique's All About Eyes for a while now, and I've sadly concluded that the results are very much the placebo effect. It's a lovely product to apply, and my eye area does look good but the results are temporary. The Clinique one costs an eye-watering £26.50 so if I can save £22 and see similar results, I'll be one happy camper.

And those were my sneaky Saturday purchases. I'm eager to see whether any of you have used any of these products, and how you got on. Also, what do we think of the Simple brand in general? I never seem to read about them anymore and I'm wondering if there is a reason why. Let me know.
