Simple Skincare

If you are anything like me you try your best to stay abreast of all the new latest skin products. Sometimes it becomes a challenge because there are so many different brands that are being made and each one tries to sell it the public promising great results.

But, let me ask you this: Do you always get the results brands promise? Not always, huh.

This is one of the many reasons I enjoy being a part of the shespeaks community. I was given the opportunity to participate in their Walgreens Simple Skincare Program. Basically, all I had to do was visit my local Walgreens store (which was not hard for me to do - I go there all the time!) and once there, speak to the Beauty Advisor about the New Simple Skincare Line. Easy as pie, right?

Right! Luckily for me, my Walgreens in Gahanna, Oh is by far the best pharmacy to go shopping at. The cashiers are very friendly and the Beauty Advisor was also helpful. They had the Simple Skincare Display right there where the Beauty Advisor's cash register was at. It would have been very hard to miss. (please notice the above photo)

Along the side of the display, there was also a small flyer describing the product line and inside there was a $1 off coupon.The Beauty Advisor was knowledgeable enough to point that put for me.

As a result of sharing this information with the team at shespeaks - I was sent a sample of a Simple Skincare product to try and review. The product I received was the Simple Smoothing Facial Scrub.

A day after I received the Facial Scrub I decided to use it after my evening shower. I was caught off guard by the soft smell of the scrub. The fragrance is more "natural" smelling - it doesn't smell like perfume, like some other facial products I have used before.

The scrub has these little "rice granules" in it- this is what exfoliates the surface of the skin. Immediately after I used the scrub I noticed a few things: (1) the rice granules do not scratch or irritate skin (2) the scrub is light but not runny (3) the scrub rinses off quite easily and (4) my skin feels refreshed.

I am really enjoying this facial scrub. It is gentle enough to use twice a day. I tend to use it in the morning as a "wake up call" as well as at night, before going to bed, in my opinion the scrub washes the daily stresses away.

So, ladies please trust me when I tell you: the Simple Skincare product line is well worth the cost!
