My Summer Skincare Essentials

Don’t you find that your skincare routine varies massively between summer and winter? Mine definitely does – I have totally different priorities depending on the season. I’ve been thinking about summer skincare a lot lately (because, erm, it’s summer) and wanted to share some of my essentials with you all!

The products are all from SIMPLE – as many of you will know, I actually work for the brand as their Brand Ambassador, although they haven’t asked me to do this post in any way. I genuinely use and love their products, as my skin is super sensitive – anything else causes my skin to throw a tantrum!

P.s. Boots currently have a 3 for 2 offer on, meaning you can get all three of these products for the price of two! Click on the links below to go straight to the Boots site – it’s an awesome offer!

Summer Skincare Essentials Simple

Here’s a closer look at each one, and just why I love them. There are a few other products that make up my routine, but these are three of my current staples!

SIMPLE Spotless Skin Deep Clean Cleansing Pads

I adore these little things! In the summer I always find my skin is more prone to blemishes, and these pads not only exfoliate my skin but help to keep spots at bay. If I’ve been wearing make up, or it’s been a particularly hot and sticky day (let’s not beat around the bush, we all get a bit sweaty from time to time!) the pads just get rid of any excess rubbish from my skin. Love them!

SIMPLE Kind To Skin+ Illuminating Radiance Cream

SPF all the way! I love this moisturiser – not only does it have SPF 15, but it makes your skin look AMAZING! I love to wear it on its own, and also mix it with my foundation. It really helps dry skin like mine to look gorgeously dewy, and it gives an incredible glow too. The light reflecting minerals look really natural, rather than glittery – I adore it!

SIMPLE Kind To Skin Vital Vitamin Foaming Cleanser

Simple Vital Vitamin Foaming Cleanser

This has been my go-to cleanser for longer than I can remember, and I particularly love it during the summer months. It is SO light and refreshing, and helps to create that clean, fresh base for any make up you want to wear. Although it’s a foam it is actually gorgeously moisturising, so doesn’t upset my dry skin in any way whatsoever. And this is probably the big kid in me, but the foaming action is SO FUN! Watching something go from a liquid to a foam in one pump fascinate me…I don’t think I’ll ever grow up!

Do you use any SIMPLE products in your skincare routine? Let me know!

Stay Creative,

    I really like their moisturizers! I’ve been using their foam cleanser in the morning and neutrogena’s acne wash at night. I found that using the acne wash was too much so I started using a more mild cleanser in the morning. I need to wash twice a day because my skin is oily and acne prone.

    I like simple products, but do they test on animals?

    There are no labels which say they don’t, which just concerns me. Great post though.
