I try to keep my skincare as minimal as possible. My oily-acne prone skin likes a basic skincare routine that includes a face cleanser, a decent moisturizer and a sunscreen. It feels far better and doable routine than including all those essences and serums.
Over these years, I have used number of moisturizers from different brands and out of them, few became part of my lifetime-favorite list. Simple Hydrating Light Moisturizer also got the privilege to be part of that list.😊
When I bought this moisturizer, the brand was completely new to me and I was skeptical to give it a try. However, it is a well known and well established brand in foreign markets. When it came to the Indian market, I was keen to give it a try.
All thanks to internet as it is loaded with tons of good reviews about almost all the products from this brand and it gave me enough confident to buy it.
About the Product
If you are someone who has oily, sensitive and acne-prone skin and looking for a lightweight moisturizer for your daily routine, then I would suggest you to go for it. It is one of the best moisturizer that comes in very affordable price range.
It has creamy gel like consistency which gives smooth application and provides long-lasting hydration without making our skin dull or oily. It doesn't have any artificial perfume, color or any other harsh chemicals which could upset our skin.
It is free from alcohol, paraben, sulphate and soap.
It comes in three different variants: Light moisturizer for normal to oily skin, Rich moisturizer for dry skin, and Protecting Light Moisturizer which has SPF 15 in it.
I bought the first variant which is a Lightweight moisturizer for normal to oily skin and has no SPF.
It comes in a white opaque bottle with a flip-flop cap. As the bottle is opaque so, you can not see how much product is left behind. However, once you reach to the bottom of the container, you can utilize the screw cap and easily get the product out of it.
My Personal Take On it
I got this moisturizer 3-4 months back when summers headed up and my search for a lightweight moisturizer eventually started.
I've heard so many good reviews about it and Instagram made me buy it without giving it another thought. It was the best decision which I took. This has become my go-to moisturizer for summers.
I take a pea-sized amount and use it twice a day. The texture is extremely lightweight and smooth which is not so thick or runny. It has perfect consistency and absorbs really well into our skin. It doesn't leave any residue behind and makes my skin non-greasy, shiny and all day moisturized. I never felt that my skin is lacking any hydration and a re-application is required.
The best thing is that it is non-comedogenic product so, it wouldn't clog our skin pores.
All Skin Types
However, if you have extremely dry skin then you might feel that the moisturization is not enough for you and re-application would require after few hours. For my normal to oily skin, it provides hydration for 10-12 hours approx.
It retails for MRP Rs. 465 for 125ml. However, you can easily get it on much lesser price. I got it at Rs. 385 only.
You can find it on Amazon, Nykaa, Flipkart and official website of Simple.
