Simple Skincare Klout Perk Review

Simple Beauty Klout Perk*Note: I was given a  product or sample because I’m a Klout influencer. I was under no obligation to receive the sample or talk about this company. I get no additional benefits for talking about the product or company.

I received another great Klout perk in the mail yesterday. I was really excited to receive this package of two full size Simple Skincare beauty products. Not one but two full size products were in the box. This was a nice surprise for me.

I have only recently started seeing the Simple Skincare products advertised online and in stores. The company is originally from the UK. I was intrigued to try a product that states it is free of unwanted dyes and perfumes and perfect for people especially with sensitive skin. I do find the older I am getting, the more sensitive my skin is becoming so I do try to find products made for sensitive skin.

The two products I received are the Facial Cleansing Wipes and the Replenishing Moisturizer. I tried both of these products last night. First I used the cleansing wipes to remove what little makeup I had left on my face. The wipes do not have a perfume scent at all, and were lightly moist. I have used some wipes that had a strong scent plus were very wet. The wipes are a generous size so I was able to completely wipe my face, eyes, and even my neck. I did use both sides, but it took off all my makeup. My face felt clean though I do admit not as clean as it does after using a facial wash. It did take off all my eye makeup and was not harsh or pull on my eyelids. I wear contacts so it is important for the wipe not to irritate my eyes.

Next I used the Replenishing moisturizer. It is not a thin moisturizer and a little thicker, but not overly thick. Some reviews I have read said the products are more for dry to normal skin which made their skin oily. I have combination skin and is more on the oily side especially living in a hot and humid climate most of the year. It did not feel oily or very thick and I was able to work into my skin very quickly. It felt so nice afterwards and silky.  I used it again this morning after washing my face, and it still feels nice on the cheeks.

I have to say overall I am very pleased with the Simple Skincare products. I will probably not buy the wipes again, but I am definitely going to purchase the facial wash.

TMR Frugal Living Tip #94

Today’s thrifty living tip is to hang your laundry using a clothesline or a laundry line. I have two metal posts outside that I use for my clothesline. Inside the house, I have a thick long chain on hooks which runs the length of my wash room. I do have a long wash room.

I can use the inside line when the weather is too rainy or cold to hang laundry outside. Hanging laundry helps to save electricity or natural gas, and I also find it puts less wear on my dryer. I have had the same dryer since 1997! I do use my dryer, but I hang laundry as much as I can.

Worried about wrinkles or clothes are too stiff, then just throw them in the dryer for a few minutes to help soften them. I prefer my towels to be stiff as I find they absorb the water more after I bathe. I just love how my sheets smell in the fresh air.

Do you hang your laundry?





Monday Mailbox- 4/02

Thrifty Momma Ramblings Monday MailboxIs everyone ready for another edition of Monday Mailbox? The freebies were a little scarce this past week. I did get a really nice freebie from Klout! I am still expecting another nice Klout perk soon. If you are a fan of Thrifty Momma Rambling facebook fan page, you would have seen a free sample to Softlips. I did not get to it in time as their servers had crashed, and I had to bring my son to his appointment. Oh well. You win some and you lose some. I hope everyone else was able to snag a sample that tried.

Here is what came in my mailbox this past week.

  • Free Shout Color Catcher Sheet Sample (one 55 cent coupon inside package)
  • Free Purex Ultra Packs Sample (50 cent coupon)
  • Klout Tintin DVD movie with Free Purina 20lb bag of Dog Chow dog food coupon

Not great but I received a free movie which was awesome! My son has been wanting to watch it since it came out last year. If you are wondering what Klout is and a perk, then please <a href=””>read this post </a>which will explain.

What freebies did you receive this past week?
