I was sent a sample of the Simple brand cleansing facial wipes a few months ago. I requested the sample somewhere but it was so long ago now I can’t remember where that was!
The Simple line started in the UK back in 1960. The products are created for sensitive skin and do not use dyes or perfumes in the ingredients. Up until about 6 months ago, this brand was only available in the UK but is now available in Canada and the U.S.
As someone who has terribly sensitive skin, I have always been a little scared of trying new products on my face. Many friends I know use cleansing wipes at night and swear by them. Most of the wipes out on the market have a beautiful scent to them, but for my skin, this just isn’t an option!
The Simple brand wipes come in a few different formulations, the ones that I tried were the cleansing wipes. They are designed to remove waterproof mascara which is an added bonus. The wipes have a very faint fresh smell to them. After using one, most of my make-up did come off, but I did use a second one to get rid of any residual make-up. My skin did not sting or feel tight afterwards, it just felt clean. I used my regular moisturizer when I was finished. After using the wipes for the duration of the week, I was hooked! My skin felt great and for the first time I did not develop any skin irritations from using a new product.
If you are looking for a wipe to use on sensitive skin, I highly recommend the Simple brand wipes.
DIY Orange Face Mask from “Food Plus Words”
Winter is quickly approaching. Because it has been a wee bit chilly outside, we have the heat on in our home. This unfotunately can lead to drier skin. I have been looking around for a moisturizing face mask for my skin. The problem is when I read the label I see all of these chemicals listed and I have no idea whether they are good or bad. All I know is that the skin is the largest organ on the body and whatever you are putting on it will certainly be absorbed into your blood stream. Oatmeal Face Scrub & Mask from “Green Earth Bazaar”
I started to look around on the web to see what I can find for more natural solutions. The plus side of this is they are also more frugal solutions too! I found some great sites and I can’t wait to share them with you! If you do try any of these, let me know how it goes. I am personally going to try the “Miracle Mask” tomorrow. Have a great Tuesday all 🙂
Just like everyone else, I have areas on my face that are too red or too dark…etc. I have tried different concealers on and off and have never really been happy with the result. I purchased L’Oreal Magic Lumi on sale and gave it a whirl!
This concealer goes on easily and blends well. I love the way it also doubles as a highlighter. I use it on the top of my cheekbones and on the bridge of my nose and lightly blend. It really brightens up my face! I also use it under the eyes. It doesn’t really take the darkness away, but it does make me look more awake. It never looks caked on and I have no issues with it settling in to any fine lines. For extreme redness or other skin issues, I do have to use a heavier product but I found using this in combination with my tinted BB cream is usually enough.
I found mine at Shoppers Drugmart (as usual!), unfortunately I can’t remember what I paid for it, but I do know it was reasonable.
How do you brighten your dark circles and cover redness? Do you have a favourite concealer?
