Simply Simplify your Skincare w/Simplicity Skincare’s Dual Pump Reversal Protection Complex | Review

Hi Lovelies,

Time flies, it was just the beginning of June and soon I’ll be back in class cue anxiety  

Summer is literally the most debatable season of them all, it super relaxing but,  with the sun; hot weather it really takes a toll on your skin, which can have you spending a summers vacation on skin products. In the weeks of being on break I have been trying this new skincare product that claims to put all other products to rest.

I’ve partnered with Brandbacker x Simplicity Skincare to test and review Simplicitys’ dual pump skin renewal   Reversal Protection Complex, and here’s my honest opinion.

I tried the Simplicity dual pump for 2 weeks ruling out all my other skincare products, but before here’s a little information on Simplicity:

1500491648363

So how did the idea for Simplicity come about? One day, while at my Esthetician, I was admiring her skin. When I asked her what she used, she told me a very expensive eye cream all over her face and neck! Why? Because effective eye creams are highly concentrated and they do a great many things, from promoting cellular repair to increasing firmness to reducing wrinkles to fighting inflammation. Then I got to thinking wouldn’t it be great to have one cream that could do it all and have it be coupled with a serum that was equally as effective? I started talking to my girlfriends about it and the answer was a resounding yes! Hence the birth of Simplicity Skincare. My Reversal Protection Complex, which is derived by combining my Superior Serum with Moisture to give your skin all it deserves. I have been using it over a year and the results have been amazing!

So Simplicitys’ Dual Pump skincare comes with a dual sided pump, with one side being a light weight serum and the other a moisturizer. The serum contains Jojoba OIl, Aloe Vera, witch hazel, and vitamin E, free of phosphates, and Alcohol. The Moisturizer contains Vitamin B5, Aloe, grapeseed oil, primrose, and chamomile.

Trying the dual pump w/o any other product feels super natural, because its a serum and moisturizer in one, it was less time consuming and within a day I could feel a  difference in my skin. I used both in the morning/night after washing my face. The feel of the formulas is super light weight and the consistency doesn’t feel oily, or sticky. Its said to be a anti aging product, which doesn’t just cover aging, the ingredients also target acne, break outs, and blemishes, which I am constantly dealing with. 

Since I’ve been using it, my skin feels like it’s being protected from the sun rays, which is a huge factor in aging skin, and a few fine lines on my forehead are beginning to diminish. I feel like if I was to use the rest of this product in a month or 2, I will get the results I’m looking for, but so far so good. 

I hope you enjoyed my post on the Simplicity Skincare dual pump Reversal Protection Complex, be sure to “Like” this post, and tell me if you’ve tried it.

I tried the products each individually for 2 weeks and here’s my thoughts on all of it.

The Ultimate Argan Oil Deluxe Exfoliating Soap ( IK mouthful) is meant to Tone, Exfoliate, and Brighten, ridding the skin of dead skin cells and giving the skin a natural glowing complexion. This was my favorite to test out, as soon as I got it in the mail I used it that night. This exfoliating soap is made of small exfoliating beads which you can feel soon as it hits the skin. Their are tons of exfoliating soaps that can be pretty abrasive on the skin, but this soap, in particular, is not abrasive, it almost feels like regular soap. I love using this soap on my face and body, it feels like it’s doing the work of 3 different body scrubs. After using this my skin feels smooth, and super clean, no need for the gang of cleansers, using the soap and a light moisturizer gets the job done. Since I’ve been using this soap my skin is incredibly smooth and I can definitely feel a difference in texture, as for the brightening of dark spots and skin, I don’t think I’ve used it long enough to see any improvement in that area, but that doesn’t change my opinion about the product, overall great product. It retails for $6

I got to try 2 different sheet mask, one the Ultimate Argan Oil Brightening Mask + The Hydrating Mask. 

I love a good sheet mask, I mean you can just leave it on  your face and let it do it’s work, while you’re updating your Instagram page, or something of that nature. Both mask are infused with Argan Oil, and are free of alcohol, which is amazing. Lets start with the brightening mask, this mask is meant to restore balance in skin cells to naturally brighten the skin, as well as, hydrating the skin. I love any mask that will clear, and restore the healthy glow of my skin without stripping my face of everything that keeps it hydrated. Each mask box comes with 4 individual sheet mask, which is just enough. So far, I have used 2 of the 4 mask and really enjoy it. The product that the sheet mask comes in is what I’m drawn to, the mask is nice,but after it dries, it has left over product that you can rub into the skin, and it dries down, but not super drying. The brightening mask has to be my favorite, I can definitely see results with the uses, I really enjoyed it. The Hydrating Mask is meant to hydrate, and restore radiance in the skin, I’ve only tried the mask once, but in that one use my skin did feel hydrated and not drying at all. I will have to use this more, but the one time was great. Each mask set retails $45 which is pricey, but for 4 mask I feel like your getting your money’s worth.

Lastly is the Argan Oil treatment serum,

I love serums, I have a ton of facial + body oils that get the job done. This serum is infused with Argan Oil, and high concentrations of fatty acids, and vitamin E. Now when I looked on the website it says its a hair oil, but I have been using this for my body and it seems to be working better than half my moisturizing collection. I love this serum, it’s super lightweight, and the smell is not overpowering. I’m half full with product, because I’ve been using it religiously since i’ve gotten it. I do love the way it works on my skin, and I can use it in my hair, so that’s just an added bonus. This serum retails for $16.

Belize in you | Skincare

black-and-white

Hi Lovelies,

Winter is here and the topic of skin is a popular subject. I myself love a good skincare regimen, but with newer more prominent products coming out, my routine is constantly changing. When it comes to my skin its normally cleanse, tone, serum, and moisturize, so when I heard about Belize in you skincare I couldn’t wait to add them into my routine.

Belize in you Marine and Body Care is a health/beauty company that uses all natural and raw materials for the Caribbean waters and Mayan mountains of Belize.

When I got contacted through pr agents to try a few items, I was excited yet hesitant, I literally had an entire conversation with myself, before replying back. When you get used to the products that you use daily, it kind of a switch up when you have to change it, but anyways I chose a toner and serum, just to see what their products can offer to my skin.

I got the Marine mineral skin toner and the Rooibos tea antioxidant facial serum. Lets talk about the marine toner, the toner looks very much high end skin care, as a matter of fact the cost is pretty much high end, it retails for $55. The product also is 4 fl oz, so your getting a ton of product for what your’e paying. After doing a morning and night routine, I can see a bit of a difference, I’ve used this for about a month, and my skin feels very refreshed and hydrated, some toners have that drying effect on the skin and with the winter here, dry weather and dry skin are both negative factors. The Marine mineral skin toner has ingredients of water, seaweed extract, Phenoxyethanol, which I’m sure is a long word for natural..I guess, this toner is half gone I really enjoy using it, its lightweight, the only thing that that I can say negative is that the pump shoots out to much product, which is really wasteful, a little product goes a long ways.

The next product I tried was the Rooibos Tea antioxidant facial serum, I was really excited to try this serum, this retails for $88, this serum is made of water (aqua), Red tea, phenoxyethanol, and Hyaluronic Acid. I really love this serum, its an antioxidant which is great to help pull toxins from the skin after cleansing your face, its really light, and liquid-y, you only need about 2 pumps, because its easy to disperse over your entire face. The Rooibos tea serum, is very nice, its wet on the face, but once it dries it gives the feeling  a tight mask. The serum is more easy to use than the toner, you can control how much you want to use, which is really nice.

I feel after using both in my skin  routine, has been a great addition, my skin feels very hydrated, and firm. I usually have a problem with scaring,  but they do seem a tad lighter, which is a bonus, but most of all it doesn’t dry out the skin.
