Proof you don’t always have to spend £££ on skincare...
For me, skincare doesn't always have to break the bank. I love to splurge, don't get me wrong, but you can certainly find great products for a fraction of the price. Simple is a brand I used all the time when I was a teenager. It was cheep and cheerful, and always got the job done with minimal faff. They don't got over the top with their packaging, the products aren't super complex and leave you wondering how you should use it, or if it will work for you. Basically, they're very user-friendly, not to mention really accessible. 

Let’s talk hydration...

So for just over £2, you can pick up the Simple Replenishing Rich Moisturiser. This stuff will pretty much have you covered as far as hydration is concerned. 

I picked this up in a pinch - I forgot my moisturiser when I was staying away one night (this was when they whether was super super cold, so I needed that hydration!) and this seemed like a safe bet, aaaand very affordable. 

It really delivers as a great all-round moisturiser. Not too thick so you can apply it in the morning, but it's thick enough to apply PM too. I have the Kiehls Ultra Facial Moisturiser (the one in the bottle, not tub) and I find it very comparable. 

The one from Keihl's is ever so slightly thicker, but other than that the differences are very small. Just worth mentioning incase you wanted to try the Kiehls offering! 

It's a light-weight cream which sinks in really nicely and doesn't leave any weird residue on the skin. If I use it in the evenings my skin feels lovely and soft come the morning, and if I'm doing an AM application it sits well under makeup and keeps my skin nourished and hydrated all day long. 

The packaging is super minimal, but I'm loving it. Some drugstore brands can put loads of thought and time into the packaging to draw people in, when actually it can have the adverse affect. Simple, truly are simple in the way they deliver their products, but it totally works in my opinion. 

All in all I'm really impressed with this little find. I think it would work really well for all skin-types, even those of you with sensitive skin as the formula is very gentle. As far as moisturisers go, it is basic, but that's kind of why I love it, and why I think it works so well.
