Simple Kind To Skin hydrating light moisturiser

Hey everyone, so today I thought I'd review my favourite moisturiser, the Simple Kind to Skin Hydrating Light Moisturiser. Try saying that fast! I've been using it for about two months, and I originally bought the mini size but I loved it so much I now have the full size.

The packaging is almost identical to the cleanser packaging, so that can be a little annoying as tehy get mixed up but I like it because it is simple, gives quite a natural look and it isn't all gimmicky and promoting things, it just simply says what the product does. This is really appealing to me because it makes the company appear more genuine in the product and beliefs they try to associate themselves with!
The product itself is super light. You only need a very small amount as it just spreads beautifully all over your skin leaving it so soft and smooth. This is perfect for someone with oily skin, or in summer when you don't want a really rich moisturiser to be weighing your skin down, because it is so light and it sinks into the skin straight away, leaving no residue at all so your skin never feels greasy. It hasn't broken me out at all, and it is the perfect base for applying makeup because it leaves the skin super duper smooth. Next winter when my skin is all dry I will probably try the rich moisturiser from Simple, but this is great for when your skin doesn't really need much more additional moisture.
I was really suprised bu the consistency of the product, as it isn't fully opaque, it's almost translucent. It has an almost watery consistency as it is so thin, but not so it's runny, just so it applies and spreads evenly over the skin.
Like I said, you barely need any product which makes it last for ages. I always apply too much on the back of my hand because you literally need a tiny blob to cover the whole face. For example, on this picture I only need about half that amount!

This is my favourite moisturiser because it keeps extra oil at bay and doesn't leave your skin greasy as some moisturisers do! For the amazing drugstore price, I would 100% recommend it.

Have you tried anything from this amazing range? 



  1. This looks like a really similar consistancy to my Temple Spa one which is running out and far to expensive for me to consider buying a new one! I will definalty give this a go! I love moisturiser that sinks in fast and I can use before makeup like youi said ! xx

    1. yeah it is a much cheaper alternative if it does turn out to be similar! xxx

  2. I've found that I've had good luck with the products that I have tried from the Simple line. They have a gel cleanser that is quite handy to have in the shower for quick makeup removal. Thanks for posting this review!

    1. ooh I will have to have a look at the cleanser! I love the products as well, they are so cheap and effective :) xxx

  3. I couldn't live without Simple! It's my life!

    It would be brilliant if you could check out my blog too!
