Winter Skincare | Simple Water Boost Moisturisers

Having a hydrating skincare routine is an essential for me all year round, but even more so in the Winter. My dry, dehydrated skin doesn't react well to dropping temperatures, reduced humidity and a lack of sleep. I have to make sure to remove any makeup with something gentle and creamy and always have to follow that up with a moisturiser. I've tried my fair share of moisturisers and have quite a few I always return to but for the past month I've been trying out two from the Simple Water Boost range - the Sleeping Cream and the Hydrating Gel Cream

I've always been a fan of Simple products as they are gentle on my sensitive skin but I knew I had to try something from the Simple Water Boost range because the range of ten products are designed for dehydrated and dry skin, which is exactly what I have. Night time products are the best for injecting hydration into my skin while I need something for in the morning to provide a good base for my makeup. 

The Simple Water Boost Skin Quench Sleeping Cream has a silky texture which glides on, instantly reducing any feelings of tightness. It doesn't take much to cover my cleansed face and the formulation with no harsh chemicals or perfumes keep my sensitive skin happy. Although this is a night cream it's not thick and heavy, it's a lightweight gel like cream which sinks in quickly without feeling at all greasy. It leaves my skin noticeably smoother and softer by the morning.


The Simple Water Boost Hydrating Gel Cream is similar to the night cream in the fact that it's lightweight and leaves my skin feeling hydrated without any greasiness or stickiness. It's the perfect moisturiser for applying in the morning before wearing makeup. The gel cream is refreshing and soothing, and quick and easy to apply. There's no hanging around waiting for it to sink in before you can start slapping on the concealer. My skin feels fresher and healthier pretty much instantly. 

Both the Sleeping Cream and Hydrating Gel Cream are affordable moisturisers, very much typical of Simple's price range at £6.99 for 50ml. They both have light, fuss-free, plastic packaging which are suitable for travel. My only bugbear is the fact that the Sleeping Cream comes in a pot because let's face it, with nails like mine it's not the most practical. But other than that I'm glad this duo have made their way into my Winter skincare routine. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who feels the negative affects of the freezing temperatures.
