All About Simple Skincare + A GIVEAWAY!

May 13, 2014 in I Adore What I Love

While I’m not out there roughing it everyday, I am a city girl.  And while I love my life more than words can describe, living in the city has made a (not-so-positive) impact on my skin.  Everyday, it’s affected by the polluted air, the harsh wind, and my on-the-go lifestyle.  

Now, if I were to sit here and tell you that I wash my face everyday and every night like the good girl that I know I should be, I’d be lying.  The thing is though, that I do aim to use my trusty Clarisonic every night before heading to bed but does that ALWAYS happen? Unfortunately not.  And in the mornings, I obviously feel better once I moisturize first thing after waking up but again, have I ever skipped that step and put on make-up right away because I’m already late as it is making it out my door… yess.

Will you please try not to judge me here?  I feel like I say that often on the blog but this time I’m serious.  I KNOW that I should be cleansing and moisturizing and hydrating and taking off my eye make-up after a long night out but sometimes, well, I just can’t help but crash in my uber comfortable beddy.  (Oh, and thanks in advance for not judging me for saying “beddy” – I just love that word).

Enter Simple Skincare

Simple Skincare Giveaway via #KindToCitySkin

You see, I am apart of the One2One Network and was asked to participate in a sponsorship campaign in honor of the Simple brand.  They sent me a slew of products from their line and let me tell you, I am loving it! I promise, all opinions are my own in this post and with that, I couldn’t pass up this opportunity because I truly believe in everything this company stands for.  Not to mention, all of their skincare products are made for the sensitive skin type, which – surprise! – is exactly the category I belong in!  Knowing that they never use artificial perfumes, dyes or harsh chemicals is a huge plus for anyone, sensitive skin or not, I would think ;)

If that doesn’t provide you with some food for thought, check this out:  the company recently surveyed woman in major US cities on their skincare habits.  Per the results, they’ve launched a campaign aptly named “Kind to City Skin” which is obviously right up my alley.  Take a look below at this enlightening (very short!) video they’ve put together to kick off this campaign and highlight the polled results:

Now for the fun part:

    My only ‘bad’ habit would be that I never use sunscreen or care much about whether my moisturizer and/or foundation have spf in them. As long as they moisturize and keep my skin from becoming shiny, I’m ok with them.

    I sometimes forget to remove my makeup before bed

    Finding products that I love help it to be a much easier experience to actually treat my skin well. But I slack in the morning routine. I should probably wash my face in the morning as well. Oh and I never take off my mascara. It kinda just goes on the days before. Or some comes off in the shower.

    Thanks for sharing about these products!
