Beauty and the Beat: 5 Things You Didn’t Know About Simple Skincare


This dedicated post has been produced as part of my partnership with Simple Skincare. The opinions within, however, are strictly my own.

Many of you now know that I’m a Brand Ambassador for Simple Skincare. I took the role because I love what the brand stands for when it comes to the creation of the essential beauty products for sensitive skin:  only the best, most nourishing ingredients and products that are incredibly kind to skin. Once I found out about its existence, I knew I wanted to get involved because, let’s face it: it’s rough out there for us sensitive skin gals and gents. We – and our skin – need all the love and skincare hugs we can get.

Since the brand’s launch in the US this year in January, you may know a little about this great skincare brand, but here are some facts about the label that you might not know:

1)      Simple only uses the kindest ingredients – As someone with sensitive skin, I have to be really careful about synthetic dyes, artificial perfumes and other harsh irritants in products. Simple contains none of these ingredients and only uses the purest possible ingredients to deliver trustworthy skincare that people can rely on time and time again.

2)      Simple is the #1 brand in the UK – The folks across the pond evidently LOVE this brand and have been reaping the rewards of these gentle-yet-effective products for decades. It’s the top-selling skincare brand in its categories in the UK.

3)      Some products are packed with essential skin-loving vitamins – You take a daily every day (don’t YOU?!?) and you try to eat well, but how many vitamins to you try to feed your face? One of my favorite products from Simple, the Replenishing Rich Moisturizer, also contains Pro-Vitamin B5, which helps restore skin’s natural balance and help soothe and smooth. I use it on my face, hands and arms while I work every day. It’s THAT GOOD.

4)      You don’t have to be a sensitive person to have sensitive skin – Contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to be born with sensitive skin. You can develop the condition a variety of ways, such as exposure to harsh products, wind, sun, smog, sweating, humidity, excessive chlorine from swimming pools, extreme temperatures, clothing and other factors. But once you’ve got it, you’ll want to take care of it.

5)      Simple products are packed with nourishing ingredients – In addition to the Pro Vitamin B5 in the Rich Moisturizer, the product line is packed with other amazing ingredients, from Chamomile Oil (known to soothe inflammation) to Witch Hazel (gentle astringent) to Shea Butter (an amazing skin-softener used to lock in hydration.) From Pro-Vitamin E (essential for supple, healthy skin) to Cucumber Extract (a natural invigorator), the ingredients found in these products are some of the kindest on earth. I don’t know about you, but I could use a little love in the skincare department, couldn’t you?

From amazing ingredients to a philosophy of caring and nourishing skin from the inside out, now you know a little more about my beloved Simple Skincare. So, head out and get your hands on a few of the products (you know that the Cleansing Facial Wipes and the Revitalizing Eye Roll-On are two of my favorites) and change your skin from sensitive to sooooo good. It’s really just that simple.
