- For years, I struggled to find skin-care products that didn't irritate my super sensitive skin or leave me broke.
- Simple Skincare was developed for people with sensitive skin, and products are free from harsh chemicals, synthetic fragrance, artificial color, drying alcohol, and more.
- I've been using three of its products — Replenishing Rich Facial Moisturizer, Micellar Facial Wipes, and Water Boost Hydrating Sheet Mask — for more than years without irritation. Here's what each of them does.
For years, I struggled to find the right skin-care products that wouldn't leave my sensitive skin with new breakouts, irritation, or dry patches, or my bank account with a negative balance. Forget haystacks — for me, finding a skin-care line that didn't irritate my sensitive skin or cost a fortune was like finding a needle in a pile of needles.
Until I started using Simple Skincare more than nine years ago.
Products are developed specifically for people with sensitive skin. They're hypoallergenic, dermatologist-tested, and ophthalmologist-tested, and free from harsh chemicals like synthetic fragrances, parabens, and drying alcohol. Instead, formulas contain natural and soothing ingredients like aloe, plant extracts, and minerals. They're vegan and free of animal cruelty too.
Here's exactly what I've been using for more than nine years:
Simple's Kind To Skin Replenishing Rich Moisturizer: The year was 2010 and I was a very price-conscious grad student in NY looking to combat my winter-wrecked skin, which rebelled against every drugstore moisturizer I tried. And while I would've loved to drop $50 on a bottle of organic argan oil — which was one of the few products that worked on me — it was a luxury I literally couldn't afford.
I came across Simple's Kind To Skin Replenishing Rich Moisturizer at my local CVS and took a chance because it was probably one of the last ones I didn't try in the entire beauty aisle. I've never looked back.
It was the first one that didn't leave my skin overly oily, itchy, or with new breakouts in the morning. Made with a cocktail of hydrating ingredients like allantoin, glycerin, and bisabolol, my face was left so fresh and soft. My favorite part is that this moisturizer doesn't contain any artificial perfumes. While I love orange ginseng and lavender, my crazy allergies don't allow me to wear anything with a lingering smell.
It's also less than $9 a bottle — seriously, that's less than the price of Chipotle's Burrito Bowl.
Just like the moisturizer, Simple Micellar Facial Wipes. are gentle on my super sensitive skin but powerful enough to get rid of sweat, city grime, and tough waterproof mascara. No wonder it has a 4.7-star rating with more than 1,400 Walmart reviews.
Simple's Water Boost Hydrating Sheet Mask: I've tried a ton of sheet masks, but many of them left my face feeling itchy. But Simple's Water Boost Hydrating Sheet Mask is infused with gentle minerals and plant extracts that don't irritate my skin.
I'll use it for 15 minutes and just massage the excess product into my skin. It's immediately hydrating and addresses five signs of dehydration — dryness, roughness, tightness, dullness, and lines. There are no artificial fragrances, dyes, or drying alcohol either, and it costs less than $5 for a pack of two.
