Unilever Simple Hydrating Light Moisturizer

Thursday, May 31st, 2012

We’ve been seeing a lot of advertising for the new brand, Simple so we wanted to try it out. Simple is actually only new to the U.S. –it’s the #1 skincare range of products in the U.K. and has been there since 1960. Now Unilever owns the brand, which prides itself in being the first to create a cleansing product with no perfume or color. We tried their Hydrating Light Moisturizer, which has Pro-Vitamin B5, Vitamin E, and glycerin. Even better is what’s missing – perfumes, dyes, and irritants. At around $10, this may seem expensive for a product with just 2 vitamins. However, the bottle is generously sized and a little goes a long way. This was excellent for our sensitive skin and seemed to work better than our more expensive moisturizers as it reduced inflammation drastically (this makes your skin appear smoother). We were truly in love with the texture of our skin after using it, it just seemed healthier! And since this is their light moisturizer, it does well in the heat or with oily skin. If you are using a lot of products to reduce the appearance of pores or to get smoother skin, you may want to try this one. We also recommend this for people who are using harsh exfoliants at night; Simple Hydrating Light Moisturizer will give your skin a break during the day. We’re pretty excited about the Simple line and look forward to trying more of their products.

Garnier Skin Renew The Brusher Gel-Cleanser

Monday, August 9th, 2010

Have you ever tried a product and became resentful that it hadn’t been created sooner? That’s how we felt about Garnier’s Skin Renew The Brusher Gel-Cleanser.  First of all, it’s fun to use! We ended up taking a much longer time to wash our face as the brush feels like a mini massage. And it’s very easy, you just squeeze the bottle slightly and the brush is loaded with the face wash. The packaging and application would win most people over, but the cleanser is actually a great formula. You get all of the foaming acting to make you feel like you’re getting a good clean, but you also get Vitamin B5, Vitamin E, and Green Leaf Extract in a cleanser that’s non-drying. Here is why we are so impressed: if you don’t have oily skin, you usually don’t get to use aggressive cleansers that make your skin feel fresh and free of makeup. This product allows someone with normal to very dry skin literally scrub their skin clean without dry patches later! Our only hope is that Garnier never discontinues this product.
