If makeup is what makes my world go round, then skincare is what created my world in the first place. Skincare is where I would be more than happy to throw my dollar bills at.

My complexion has gone through many changes in life, but never has it been as good as it is now. Sure, I have redness and a couple of trouble spots, but for the most part my skin is healthy, normal, and rarely breaks out. Thank goodness. It only took 36 years to get here …

Recently in the test lab I’ve been playing with Pure+simple’s Minimalist line. After dabbling with their Cleansing Milk and Rejuvenating Face Oil in the past and seeing amazing results, I was keen to try out this new line when I received it.

The new minimalist line focuses on improving the hydration and texture of the skin through key ingredients that incoude essential oils and fatty acids. There are four products in the line that can be used as a collective or individually mixed and matched for a routine that works for you!

I started with the Exfoliating Cleansing Milk and the Face Lift Serum. I introduced the cleanser first for three days on its own, then introduced the serum. Immediately I saw some promising results. I had a few random hormonal bumps on the face which cleared up after the first two days of using the cleanser. With the Face Lift Serum, the dry patches around the healing bumps disappeared significantly by the next day; after five days, I had softer skin, a healthy glow and I actually stepped out of the house makeup free.

This week, I will add in the Face Cream and Face Elixir. The only reason I haven’t tried them yet is because I have been pleased already with the current routine – but I am excited to see what results I can get when using all four products together.

You can check out the entire Minimalist line at www.pureandsimple.ca. The products range between $40-$100 and in my opinion are well worth the investment!
