I recently picked up Simple Nourishing 24HR Day/Night Cream ($12.49) because my skin was busy being incredibly dry but also a little bit sensitive. Honestly, my skin is resilient as hell but this past Winter it decided that it was going to completely confuse me.
So I’ve been trying to keep things as basic as possible due to the fact it wants to be freaky. Simple seemed like the way to go as their line is supposed to be great for sensitive skin users and First Aid Beauty just hasn’t cut it for me. Add in the fact it is budget friendly and I felt the need to try out some of their offerings.
Simple Nourishing 24HR Day/Night Cream, as promised, is a pretty basic water and glycerin based moisturizer that comes housed in a 1.7 oz pot. I know, I know! I hear you all crying out in agony that it comes in the jar but since the ingredients are so simple (pun intended?!) you might not mind so much that it comes packaging this way.
I personally can’t get away with this as a night cream as it’s super, super lightweight and although nicely hydrating it isn’t hydrating enough to repair skin during skin. I adopted it as a day cream and like it as such. The formula has a certain Steam Cream quality with a lighter consistency and a quick to absorb formula that leaves skin dewy and soft after application. It wears beautifully under makeup and doesn’t create unnecessary oil or shine. Oily skin might find it a bit to moisturizing for daily use so might wish to adopt it as a night cream instead. It has absolutely no fragrance which is a plus for those sensitive to fragrance in their skincare.
Simple Nourishing 24HR Day/Night Cream is very gentle, quick to absorb, and quite nicely hydrating as a day cream for drier skin types but won’t prove hydrating enough for night use. Sensitive users will likely like how gentle this formula is and how nicely it hydrates without causing further havoc on sensitive or dry/sensitive skin.
I liked it a lot. It’s exactly what my freaky skin needed at the moment.
Simple Nourishing 24HR Day/Night Cream is available now at drugstores or grab it on sale at Target.com.
I look forward to your thoughts if you tried it!
