Simple Skincare Haul

When I saw that Boots had the whole of the Simple skincare range at half price last week I thought it would just be plain RUDE not to invest in a few bits for myself.
I love Simple and have been using it on and off since I was probably about 14- alongside Nivea they have got to be my favourite drugstore skincare brand.
Being on a bit of a budget for the next year ( you can read about about that here) I will be splashing out less on more expensive high end products/brands and sticking to barry bargains which I know work well!
I picked up 7 products from the range and wanted to tell you all about them as I have been so excited about how cheap they are right now!
L2R : Facial Wash, Facial Toner, Facial Scrub, Light Moisturiser, Illuminating Cream, BB Cream & Handwash.

Simple Refreshing Facial Wash Gel - Was £3.39 Now £1.69
This is a product I've used before, but not for a long while! I have to have a facial wash in the shower for every morning, something to wake both me and my skin up and prep my skin ready for my morning skincare routine and make-up!

Simple Soothing Facial Toner - Was £3.29 Now £1.64
This is always my back-up when I run out of my Liz Earle Skin Tonic. This is something I use every morning and every night - I feel grotty without a toner!

Simple Smoothing Facial Scrub - Was £3.39 Now £1.69
I'm a scrub addict. Especially during the summer months when I feel I can notice build up so much more! For the price this is a total bargain - great to keep in the shower and use 1 or 2 times a week!

Simple Protecting Light Moisturiser - Was £4.35 Now £2.17 
I'm such a naughty girl when it comes to moisturising... after trying out a few thicker creams and my skin not reacting well I have become very distant from this everyday step. I used to use this as a teen and I thought for this cheap price - why not try it again! (So far so good...)

Simple Illuminating Radiance Cream - Was £6.59 Now £3.29
I have wanted to try this for so long, but my stingy self has refused to pay out the missley £6.59 for it haha! My Mum bought this months and months ago and said how much she liked it and I'm really glad I have finally bought it as it is lovely!

Simple Perfecting BB Beauty Balm - Was £6.29 Now £3.14
Again... I've wanted to try this since the day it came out! BB/CC creams are a favourite of mine for this time of year and I'm looking forward to using something a little lighter than my usual high coverage foundation. The only thing that worries me is that from what I saw there is only one shade... I haven't tried it yet so I'm hoping it will be okay!

Simple Handwash - Was £2.10 Now £1.05
Last but not least something for the kitchen/bathroom (which ever one runs out first!) I wash my hands alot so having something which is kind to skin is really good for me and for half the price I thought it would be a nice treat!

Do you use anything from Simple? What are your favourite products?

  1. I was so excited when I saw all of these on sale at Boots the other day! I wish I brought more, I really love the whole of the Simple range :) xx


  2. I have only tried Simples micellar water and Pore minimising toner. I would love to try out the light moisturiser but is it moisturising enough for dehydrated skin?


  3. I haven't tried out this range -- they're a little expensive in Australia, but I've heard that sometimes they're not so nice on sensitive skin! I might give the moisturiser a go one day though, because I loooove moisturisers!

  4. I also picked up a few of their items when I saw they were half price. You should try out their Micellar water if not already x


  5. I'm always looking for new skincare products, but I'm also about to run out of Toner (I'm trying to run down all my skincare products before I move so I don't have to take loads of ends of products with me) so I might have to check Simple's out. I really like their Eye Makeup Remover if you haven't tried that yet. I have pretty sensitive eyes and this doesn't irritate them at all.

  6. Such bargains! I love Simple too for makeup removers but use Clinique to cleanse, tone and moisturise! xx

  7. These are all such good prices, I love getting things when they're on special offer it just makes the products seem even better hehe :) I always seem to forget about simple skincare so I'm going to have to take advantage of this offer!
    Love Holly x


  8. going to Boots in my lunch break. Need to stock on the facial gel and scrub :D

  9. I'm hoping that this is still going on at my local store so I can stock up! I agree, simple are one of the best budget brands and I can't fault them!! Tania xx taniamichele.blogspot.co.uk

  10. Ooh I wish I had seen this offer! I would have loved to try the illuminating cream, I've been eyeing up it for a while too. I always have a back up of Simple's moisturiser in my collection :)

  11. OMGGGG so cheap and I adore simple it doesn't matter what state my skin is in they do their magic xx

  12. So glad I saw this post, love simple products, love them even more at half price


  13. Ohh such a steal! I do love Simple, they cant seem to go wrong!

  14. I loveeee Simple! Will always be a brand I go back to. Might have to go get some if they're half price!


  15. I LOVE the cleansing lotion. It's great for dry skinned gals as it's not drying in the slightest. As it's so cheap I'm not worried about how much I use. I massage a big whollop (technical term there!) and rinse off. If I haven't already removed my makeup using micellar water I'll do the whole thing again just to make sure my skin's completely clean. Brilliant stuff!

  16. I am so GREEN from looking at your haul! Bad joke? Pun? I don't even know where I wanted to go with that...

    SIMPLE has been a brand I've heard quite positive things about and I've seen products here and there in my local drugstores but have not given it a try yet. After seeing this post, you got me curious on the facial wash and toner. :)

  17. Thanks for sharing your thought and it’s really helpful. Selecting a cleanser with a balanced PH will help maintain skin's natural balance and for me the best facial cleanser is Sakare’s cleansing products.

  18. It makes some people nervous to buy Chanel handbags from China but the truth is this is the best way to get the best deal. Louis Vuitton are plenty of sites with great, coherent English, customer service that ship from China. Rolex Air Kin are reliable and since there is no North American/European distributor the same products are cheaper. You can also be assured that they have direct access to all the best Replica handbags and don’t have to be dependent on another supplier.As many of you know I have actually been to China and hunted through the markets for Hermes handbags.Simply put, the options are limited. You cannot get a great replica of every Omega watches .?
