Pure + Simple | Natural Skin Care Line


Disclosure: Although I was provided with a free trial kit, please know that I am not being compensated by Pure + Simple for this review. These are my honest opinions and my experience.

Fact: The skin is the largest organ of the body and absorbs almost everything we put on it. It naturally protects us frommicrobes and the elements; helps regulate body temperature, and permits the sensations of touch, hot and cold”(source).

I believe by nourishing our skin with natural ingredients, not only do we help our skin to remain healthy, but, we prevent it from being damaged. This is the reason why I am always on the hunt for natural skin-care lines or regiments.

PURE+SIMPLE

I originally heard about Pure + Simple from a You Tuber (Shameless Maya). After reading many positive reviews and speaking to people who use their brand on the regular, I had to try it for myself. What captured my attention about this line is the fact it is an “all-natural skincare + wellness spa for customers seeking products + services that are consistent with their healthy natural lifestyle” (#goals). In addition, this is a Canadian brand. They own five locations in Toronto and an online store. Their online website is very informative and well detailed. (Click here to learn more)

Back in April, I visited the Yorkville location (walking distance from my work). The place was wonderful and well organized. I also noticed the store carried other natural skin care brands. I was approached by one their lovely representative (Samantha). After sharing my skin concerns and the fact of my lifestyle blogging with her, I was provided with a kit and some extra goodies (product samples) to test out before purchasing full size (products samples are free).
I also received an awesome book: Pure + Simple: A Holistic Guide to Natural Beauty written by Kristen Ma (co-owner of Pure + Simple Inc).

The book says of itself that it is natural and holistic guide to beauty which combines the ancient principles of Ayurveda with the modern-day knowledge of skin biology. With these tools, understand the root causes of common skin ailments and how to rebalance your body, mind and spirit for a flawless, glowing complexion. “- Click here to read more.

MY REVIEW

This line overall is great (even my husband loves it).

  • Sensitive Cleansing Milk: Love this! Leaves your skin clean, soft and moisturized.
  • Pure+simple – Hydration Serum: Love it (my husband’s favorite and #2 on my favorites list)! Dries quickly and leaves your skin feeling really hydrated (the label didn’t lie).
  • Pure+simple – New Sensitive Skin Face Oil: It was okay, I did not like the scent. It contains coconut oil and my skin does not like coconut oil. I use it only at night and after two uses it was clogging my pores.
  • Pure+simple – Skin Drink: Feels heavy on my face. Would not recommend it if you have oily skin or wearing it during summer time.
  • Pure+simple – Algae Serum: My new obsession (#1 on my favorites list). You can skip moisturizing after wearing this serum. It leaves your skin feeling very moisturized. Saw changed on my skin just after two uses.
  • PURE+SIMPLE – Skin Softening Moisture Lotion: This one is great! The label did not lie. Very moisturizing, leaves your face feeling like a baby’s skin.
  • Pure+simple – Sensitive Skin Exfoliant + Face Mask: A good mask, but, didn’t exfoliate my skin (I will stick to DYI brown sugar and honey scrub).
  • Damage Care – Restorative Raw Argan Oil: Let’s just say, I almost cried when it was done. I love this! You notice changes the following day.
  • Coola – Mineral Face SPF 20 – Rose Essence Tinted Moisturizer:  
    Brought this with me to Jamaica and I loved it. The first SPF that actually looks good on my complexion (careful, if you apply too much under your foundation it might make your skin look gray)
FINAL THOUGHTS

Pure + simple is currently my favorite, Natural skin care line. Yes, the price is a bit on the high end, but it is worth every penny. I noticed a huge change on my skin after one month of use. My skin looks and feels great. Definitely get some samples or speak to one of the representative before purchasing a full size.
