Skincare Suprises


My skin the past month or so has been off there seems to be something new everyday may it be a dry area or a massively visible spot. However there has been some definite improvements as the days have gone on, and surprising have come from unexpected places.

I'm at the moment receiving Glossy boxes, which if you don't know what it is, it's basically a subscription service that sends you a new box every month with new beauty products. The first few months I was loving it but as the months have gone on I don't really think they are worth the money, it's not that the products are bad they just don't excite me anymore. Anyway in my August box nothing stood out except the cleanser the Sass Purifying Cleanser.

Okay at first, I need to admit I thought it was like a balm cleanser meaning you put it on a dry face and wash off, only because of the way it explains the application. Well it's not that type of cleanser and so stung my face after a few uses until I thought, 'Wait, what if you use it like a normal cleanser?' and after that it worked a dream. I see such a different in my pores and in the tightness, it feel so soothing and purifying (as the name describes) when you use it as well as moisturising, a definite repurchase soon and maybe try out a few other products by the company. And that's what I love about beauty boxes, you get to try out new products that you might not have tried otherwise but I think I'm just having a bit of a hit and miss at the moment.

Simple is an amazing low end brand with so many products that I love and adore. But never did I think I would find myself enjoying these two quite so much.

Toner always was a complete mystery to me I didn't get what it was for let alone want to spend my money on it. However I decided to finally get on the toner band wagon and understand what it's all about. So I read up on it and decided to start out on a cheaper option from a pretty trust worthy brand and see if I actually notice a difference. The whole point of them is to finish off the cleansing process after you've actually cleansed, to get those last bits and reduce visibility of pores etcetera. I think the Soothing Facial Toner does just that, there is still so much crap on you face even after you cleanse, I had no idea.

My skin is very annoying in the way it's extremely dry in places and very oily in others. So a moisturiser that really enriches my dry skin but also doesn't make me a shiny mess is hard to find but I think this Replenishing Rich Moisturiser does a pretty good job of that.

Often we associate money with high quality when a lot of the time the best things don't come with a huge price tag like these items, that will teach me not to expect much from a cheaper product!

What products have surprised you?

  1. I absolutely love the facial toner. I saw on YouTube lots of people talking about it and beauty bloggers to so I picked it up and its amazing! P.S another good drugstore skincare product is the Garnier Misellar Cleansing Water it just removes the makeup so nicely and also cleanses the skin too.

  2. I have mixed feelings about the Simple brand - some of their products really work for me, while others give me the most awful breakouts! I haven't tried their toner yet, hopefully I'll be able to love it as much as you do <33

    1. I suppose you get that with every skin care brand though you have to find what works with your skin which is so frustrating at times. I know their exfoliating wipes break me out so bad so I stay clear of the! you should definitely give the toner a go you never know you might fall in love with it!

  3. I just started using some of the Simple items and I'm really loving it. I use that toner too and I'm not exactly sure what a toner does but I do like the marketing claims on this product lol. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
