I'm constantly trying new products on my face. Since having my children, my skin has gone completely cuckoo. Southern humidity creates quite a shine, while most products I use can really dry out my skin. I recently tried some new lotion from a company that I'm quickly falling in love with.

Simple Kind to Skin Purifying Cleansing Lotion is from the wonderful people at Simple in the UK. This company that has been around for more than 40 years creates skin care products that are actually good for your skin. All of their products are ph balanced to work in harmony with your skin and contain nothing but the good stuff. No harsh dyes, chemicals or perfumes are found in Simple's product lines. I like that.

The Purifying Cleansing Lotion is loaded with Pro-Vitamin B5 and left my skin feeling and looking better after the first time I used it. I've used other lotions on my face before and they all seemed to be fine but, really left me feeling a tad gunky. I like that the Simple lotion feels much thinner than other lotions I tried. I noticed that immediately. Obviously, because it is from Simple, there are no perfumes so, it's got a nice fresh scent. After applying it, I noticed my skin felt refreshed and softer but, not like I needed to wash it again.

The summers in the southern heat can be brutal on skin. The dry skin on my face will sometimes spread to just at my temples. This is a tough area. Too much lotion can leave my hair greasy and not enough lotion means dealing with dry skin. No lotion I had tried would work on the skin for longer than an hour or so and also leave my hair ungreasy. I applied the lotion from Simple to those areas and the skin just wasn't dry anymore. Because this lotion isn't greasy, my hair wasn't greasy. All the problem patches on my face were also smoothed and softened quickly and the relief lasted. I like that while it is soothing my dry skin, this lotion is also helping to cleanse and purify my face.

Simple Kind to Skin Purifying Lotion can be found in all of the Duane Reade stores throughout NYC and at duanereade.com. Duane Reade is the leading pharmacy store in New York City and constantly strives to bring the best products to it's customers. Stores will be carrying more of the Simple brand products soon.
