Simple Skincare Products I Just Can’t Live Without

Not sure if you knew by now but I love makeup and I like to wear it everyday. I’m one of those gals that doesn’t really have a day-to-night makeup I really love dramatic makeup as soon as I wake up. The smoky eye, the perfectly blushed cheeks, flawless skin, and of course the lip gloss. I do know however that great looking makeup can only look good on great looking skin. And my go-to skincare products are by Simple Skincare.

L to R: Smoothing Facial Scrub, Soothing Facial Toner

Great makeup starts with great skincare

For me the biggest thing that makes my skin radiant is when my skin is exfoliated and very hydrated. But there is a catch 22 here, because exfoliating my skin using the wrong skincare products can also sometimes irritate my skin or the product can be too harsh.

When Marta Walsh Meets Simple Skincare

I first got to know Simple Skincare when I moved to Cheltenham England. The same evening I landed in England, I took a walk to town center and right into Boots UK’s Pharmacy. Anyone who moves countries knows, and can relate to me here, that when you are new to town you always look for comforting things that make you feel like home.

Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Oil-Free Skincare

Loving the Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Oil-Free skincare collection which includes a cleanser, toner, and lotion. It so moisturizing in fact that “I can’t believe it’s oil-free”. They are also fragrance-free. The cleanser is a cream but feels fresh on the skin not oily of course. It is formulated with a sugar-derived glycoside foaming agent to thoroughly cleanse skin and remove make-up, without stripping skin of its natural oils.
