Feels like a long time since I've done any writing that was non-work related and on this lovely sunday evening what else is there to write about than skincare!
The blogging scene has recently just blown up with reviews and raves on the Caudalie beauty elixir so...I'm not going to talk about that! lol I came across this new product on the market that was sort of designed with the same purpose in mind. It was half the price with almost double the amount of product and was designed especially with sensitive skin in mind...OBVIOUSLY I was going to pick this up!
It's the Simple Moisture Boost Hydro Spray...

Vitamin E moisturises to improve skin condition.

How I've been using it...?
I've been using this as a toner in the morning to refresh after cleansing and at night just before bed. I've also used this as a refresher throughout the day and tested how it fairs over and under makeup.
And my thoughts...?
To put it simply (haha Get it..?!) I like it! Now don't get me wrong it's not a miracle worker and it doesn't instantly make you look like Megan Fox frollicking on a beach on Dubai! But it is nice, just to refresh and with your eyes closed if you have hot, dry, tired eyes it instantly soothes and cools them. Used under makep it works as a nice little base for your foundation especially if you have horribly dry skin like me. It doesn't however replace my moisturiser completely so not as hydrating as I'd hoped. Used over makeup I really like it. I have skin which will dry in a blizzard which is not a good situation for foundation and this mist just eliminates the dry lines and cakiness that tends to appear half way through the day. The only problem? It's a temporary fix and the effects only last about 30-60 minutes before I need a respray.
Overall I do like it and with it being priced around the £5 mark for 50mls it doesn't break the bank but is it something I could live without?! hmmm Probably and even though I haven't tried the infamous Caudalie version do I think this is as good?! From what I've heard of the Caudalie one I don't think the Simple mist would surpass it in the ranks and the Caudalie Beauty Elixir is next on my 'To Get' list.
I'm really getting into my skincare now and drinking a lot more water so any skincare suggestions would be great! Don't forget to comment below and follow my blog if you like it :D It'll make my day! :D
Until Next Time
Ciao for now world
