Beauty Review: Simple Skincare Gift of Goodness

I have been a Simple fan for over ten years. As a teenager, I was lucky enough not to get many spots. In fact, I’ve hardly had any my entire life, but I put it down to my Simple skincare routine. Please don’t hate me and keep reading!

I starting using Simple skincare from the age of about 14, as I wanted something sensitive and not made up of harsh chemicals in order to keep my skin as it was. I had found some soaps irritated my skin a little so thought it was best to stick with sensitive skin products.

Simple was the first UK skincare brand to formulate a cleansing product that contained no colour and no perfume; designed to care for even the most sensitive skin.


Since I was younger, I have tried other brands and many of you will know I’m a huge fan of Body Shop Vitamin E creams. I started using Body Shop as I wanted to drench my dull, dry skin in moisturiser.

Simple Skincare

Since I started using Body Shop products, I’ve only ever used sample sizes of Simple while travelling – as I find I need something fresh and light after travelling. I also religiously use the facewipes as have never found any to be quite as good as these.


They are the only ones that seem to stay wet and actually get everything off!

I was lucky enough to receive this Gift of Goodness set by Simple, which was a great opportunity to see how I feel about these products now, almost 15 years after I started using them!


The set includes:

  • Kind to Skin Purifying Cleansing Lotion 200ml
  • Kind to Skin Soothing Facial Toner 200ml
  • Kind to Skin Hydrating Light Moisturiser 125ml
  • Cosmetics Bag

I’ve been slacking lately when it comes to a skincare routine so this was definitely needed!

I used the cleansing lotion first, then went on to the toner and moisturiser. I love that there is no fragrance as find that sometimes it can be a little off-putting when spread all over my face!


The cleansing lotion made my skin feel really fresh and the toner added to this feeling. I almost didn’t want to cover it with the moisturiser. However, I went ahead and used it. You only really need a bit as it spreads well so will definitely last a while. The moisturiser is so light, it feels like it’s barely there, yet my skin was noticeably softer.

The cosmetic bag was a great extra and makes this a nice gift rather than just a skincare package. It’s wipe clean so great for keeping in the bathroom. I would definitely give this as a gift, especially to my younger sister who I also introduced to Simple!

I would definitely recommend trying these products, especially to people with sensitive skin. The set is usually about £10, but was down to £5 over Christmas, but for such large bottles it’s easily worth the full price.
