Beauty: Keeping it Simple

Over the last several weeks, I’ve been trying out a new line of products called Simple. This collection of facial cleansers, moisturizers, and cleaners is the number one skincare line in the UK and it has recently made its way to North America.

I’m not one to spend much time on a beauty regimen but when I first learned about the Simple skincare line, I was curious to know how simple (and effective) these products actually were. I’m happy to report that after a few weeks of consistently using the facial wash and hydrating moisturizer, I have noticed that my skin is softer and less dry than it has been in months! (I’m not just saying this – it’s true.) It has also been easy to incorporate these two products into my morning routine. On the downside, I have yet to try the exfoliating wipes – maybe two new products in one month is as much as I can handle.

How about you? What are your essential skincare products?

Many thanks to Kelly Lynn A. for sending me products from the Simple skincare line.

Update: Since writing this post I have tried the exfoliating wipes and cleansing wipes and I’m very happy with how they both feel and work for my skin.

Beauty: Vaseline

They say good things come in three, right?

Vaseline lotion has been a wintertime essential for me (well, who am I kidding, I’ve got a bottle on the go year round). Over the last few weeks I have been using three new products from the Vaseline Total Moisture line. I’m not sure alternating products is really what one is supposed to do when it comes to lotion but that’s been my approach and it’s been working out okay.

The new Vaseline Total Moisture line is just as the name suggests – it’s moisturizing. Like other Vaseline lotions, it absorbs quickly and it feels good for my skin. Three varieties are currently available – Dry Skin, Cocoa Radiant, and Aloe Fresh – so you can be sure that there’s a formula that is right for your skin.

Vaseline Total Moisture lotions, $4-$9, across Canada

Now…I wonder how Vaseline would feel about all-white packaging. Hint, hint.

Many thanks to Erin M. for passing along these products.

Vaseline's New Line

Thanks to our friends at Vaseline, I have had the opportunity to try out some Vaseline Intensive Rescue products. I’m happy to report that after a couple of weeks of regular use, my skin feels and looks great. Bonus – the lotions are non-greasy (a definite pet-peeve). Double bonus – these Vaseline lotions are white!

Vaseline Intensive Rescue products are available at most drug and grocery stores across Canada.
