{review} Simple Skincare #NoMakeupWakeup

Vogue and Simple Skincare provided the items featured in this post, but opinions are my own.

A couple weeks ago I was sent Simple Skincare's makeup removing collection. Sleeping in makeup can make skin irritated and sensitive. That’s why Simple Skincare, the sensitive skin experts, is encouraging women to remove makeup every night with products that are kind-to-skin. Simple Skincare products are made with no dyes, artificial perfumes or harsh chemicals that can upset skin.

I'm a bit of a slacker when it comes to face care. I don't actually wash my face (apart from using St. Ives Apricot Scrub every other day in the shower.) I know, shocker and probably not very good for my skin.  I normally use Caudalie's Make-Up Remover Cleansing Water to remove my makeup each night. But for the past few weeks I've been using the products Simple Skincare sent (except the facial wash.)

Each night I started by removing my eye makeup with their remover pads. That was followed by the facial wipes to remove the remainder of my makeup. I finished up with their rich moisturizer. Each morning I applied the moisturizer again. My skin has been looking, and feeling, great!

How do you get glowing, healthy-looking skin in the morning?

Eye Makeup Remover Pads: Simple Skincare Eye Makeup Remover Pads are tough on mascara (even the waterproof kind), but gentle on lashes. Treat yourself to a #NoMakeupWakeup by removing your makeup with products free of harsh chemicals, artificial perfumes and dyes!
My Thoughts: These worked great at removing my eye makeup. The only problem I had was the texture on one side was a little rough, but I supposed it's worth the slight annoyance to get your mascara off, right? 

Cleansing Facial Wipes: Need to remove makeup in a pinch? Keep Simple Skincare Cleansing Facial Wipes on your nightstand for an easy cleanse before hitting the hay.
My Thoughts: The wipes are so soft and not irritating at all for my skin. And I really like the fresh clean scent, it's not overpowering.

Replenishing Rich Moisturizer: After cleansing, don’t forget to rehydrate skin with a rich moisturizer like Simple Skincare Replenishing Rich Moisturizer, packed with skin-loving ingredients.
My Thoughts: A really great moisturizer that leaves my skin feeling fresh and smooth.  It's not super thick which is great becasue I'm not clogging my pores with a ton of product.

And some information on the product I didn't use, which I am sure is just as great as the rest of the collection.

Moisturizing Facial Wash: Cleansing skin twice a day is the key to naturally healthy-looking skin. Try Simple Skincare Moisturizing Facial Wash for a gentle, yet thorough cleanse to give you a fresh & glowing #NoMakeupWakeup.
