[unpaid/sample/affiliate/ad] I haven’t heard from Simple for ages so I thought I’d flag up their new Booster Serums – who knew! They’re all designed for sensitive skin so if you’ve wanted to add an ingredient to your routine to target something specific, I think they’re pretty good value.
This post is pretty much for information – other than a surface test, I haven’t put these to any results test. All I can say is that they’re very pleasant on the skin. I will flag up a useful description of Niacinamide from the Simple site – I mean, I forget what everything’s for because it’s a lot to keep up with and reminders are always useful. Niacinamide is a form of vitamin B that’s low irritation but high benefits. Oiliness, enlarged pores, soothing and strengthening the skin barrier – it’s something of a wonder ingredient. The thing I don’t know is how much you need daily to maintain all the benefits but it seems that 10% (in the serum) is standard across the board.
I’m also interested to know if we are over mixing and matching our skin care? I don’t feel nearly as enthusiastic about dosing my own face as I used to – I really lean towards products that are all encompassing these days with the odd exception being PHA from Jenni at Willowberry (HERE) for excellent cell turnover qualities in a gentle formula and Garden of Wisdom’s Neurophroline™ Serum (HERE) for extra hydration. Although I’m (healthiliy, I hope) sceptical of these extra ingredient doses, the one that I have little time for is Vitamin C for brightening – I did a call out on Instagram specifically asking if anyone had seen noticeable results from using Vitamin C serums and with only one or two indicating the positive, nobody else really had. The Simple Serums are £5.06 on Amazon HERE which is cheaper than Superdrug or Boots.
