Today I will be reviewing a toner from the brand Simple. I’m pretty familiar with this brand and I have tried some products from this brand before, such as the makeup remover wipes and face wash. One of the things that I like from this brand is the toner. The toner is part of the kind to skin range, which I think is aimed at more sensitive skin, so perfect for me! If you want to know why I like this product, please keep on reading!
My Experience with Simple Kind to Skin Soothing Facial Toner:
This is the second or third time I have purchased this toner because I’ve found that my skin tolerates it really well.
The toner comes in a green plastic bottle and to disperse the product, I squeeze the bottle and it comes from the applicator on the top. I prefer this type of packaging to a spray toner, but sometimes I do tend to accidently pour too much out onto the cotton pad, which wastes the product. Other than that, the packaging is pretty simple and fuss free. The amount of toner you get in a bottle is 200ml, which I think is great, considering the very affordable price.
This toner is 100% alcohol free, which is great because alcohol can tend to dry the skin out. It also contains no perfume or fragrance, which makes it great for sensitive skin. I have sensitive skin and I have found that this toner works fine on me. I like to use the toner after cleansing my skin and it definitely leaves it feeling very refreshed. However, I have not found that it does much in terms of reducing the appearance of my pores.
I think that the immediate effects of this product are a lot better than the long-term effects. I like using this toner solely because it leaves my skin feeling good, but I haven’t actually noticed any long-term benefits or any improvements to my skin. I still have acne scars and I still get spots, but I totally understand that this product has not been designed to deal with those skin issues. So, if you are looking for a toner that has amazing skin benefits, this is not the toner, however if your skin is in need of hydration (especially since it is now winter and skin tends to get more dry) then I think this toner is great!
On the website, one of the claims is that the toner removes the last traces of makeup and cleanser, but I would never use a toner to do that. A toner is not designed to remove the last traces of makeup because a cleanser is designed to do that. If the toner removes traces of makeup after cleansing, it means your cleanser has not done a very good job! Also, a toner is not designed to remove the last traces of cleanser and likewise, if there are still traces of cleanser remaining on your face, it means you haven’t washed the cleanser off properly! Although this toner does leave my skin feeling refreshed, I find that I still need to use a moisturiser afterwards because my skin feels a little uncomfortable if I don’t moisturise.
Pros of sitive skin Kind to Skin Soothing Facial Toner:
- Good for sensitive skin.
- Fragrance/perfume free.
- Leaves the skin feeling refreshed.
Cons of Simple Kind to Skin Soothing Facial Toner:
- Doesn’t do much in improving skin appearance.
- No long-term skin benefits.
Would I repurchase Simple Kind to Skin Soothing Facial Toner?
Yes, I’ve just repurchased another bottle!
Though, when this toner temporarily ran out, I used rose water as a substitute and it worked perfectly well, but I’m so used to using this toner that I just had to repurchase it! However, I will also love to try some other toners and I would love to hear your suggestions!
Thanks for reading and I’ll be back soon with another review for you all!
