Walmart Back to School challenge: Skincare

When I was going to school skin care was #1 on my list. came before my school supplies and outfits.
I was blessed to go through elementary school - college with perfect skin. 
I think it came down to having the right essentials.

The best place to get all your skincare/beauty needs is Walmart!
I love Walmart because it's a one stop shop. Literally everything is under one roof!

I was given the opportunity to visit my local Walmart and shop in-store to complete a 
Back to School challenge.  

It was fun going through the aisles and looking at all the makeup/skin care stations.
I picked three products that will make your skin ready to battle the up-coming semester!
  1. Simple® Foaming Cleanser
    Essential for sensitive skin
    Roll back $6.77
    Was $7.97
  2. Olay Fresh Effects Va-Va-Vivid Powered Contour Cleansing System
    Gentle on skin
  3. Simple® Protecting Light Moisturizer spf 15
    Perfect for sensitive skin
Total with tax= $36.95

Wet your skin and apply Simple's foaming cleanser into wet skin with your finger tips.

To get out all of the dirt and impurities use Olay Fresh Effects's Va-Va-Vivid powered contour cleansing brush. Use it on your face in a gentle circular motion.

Lastly, use Simple's Protecting Light Moisturizer with SPF 15 to protect your skin from 
UVA and UVB rays.

Gentle Skin Care for Sensitive Skin: Ecotools & Simple

I go through periods of time when my skin is very sensitive. 
 I'm always looking for options during that time to prevent my skin
from looking dull during those times.

I think I found a winning combination!

Ecotools Pure Complexion Facial Sponge- Sensitive skin ($11.99 CAN) and Simple Vitamin Foaming Cleanser($7.97 - $10.99 CAN).

I've been using the Simple Vitamin Foaming Cleanser for months but I find it much more effective a with facial sponge!

I had no experience with a facial sponge that looked like this before. To be honest, it look like a pumice stone. I avoided using it for a while because I thought it would scratch my skin. After doing some research on Google about Konjac sponges I decided to give it a try.
The new unique Pure Complexion Facial Sponge is handmade with 100 percent natural ingredients, including Konjac* vegetable fiber, for a better clean that reveals smooth, refreshed skin. It is dermatologist tested for use both morning and night to wash away dirt, oil and makeup, leaving skin glowing without over-drying or causing redness.
I was surprised how it fills up with water so quickly. Plus it's very soft and gentle skin. Definitely not the idea I got when I took it out of the package. Overall, I liked the "clean" I got when I used it with my foaming cleanser.

The only thing that I really thought was odd was when it dried. It didn't dry looking how it was when I received it. I know that's such a small minor detail(which may not bother others) but either way when you add water back to it, it "fluffs" back out.

For anyone who's interested in this Simple skin care vitamin cleanser- it's really good! You get the perfect amount via a pump every time. My skin never feels dry or tight after using it. Plus it's full of the good vitamins our skin needs! 
Our special blend of Simple cleansing and moisturising goodness containing Pro-Vitamin B5, Vitamin E, Glycerin, Chamomile and Geranium, helps to keep your skin moisturised, refreshed and cleansed.

Skin Care: Eucerin, Simple & Olay

I love Summer skin! It's always golden and evenly toned.
 A lot of people don't know that after a day in the sun you need to put back the moisture into your skin.

Hydration is key! 

I also exfoliate and tone (time to time) but this post will be 
about my current favourite moisturizer and cleansers.

Eucerin DermatoCLEAN Mild Cleansing Lotion($11.76 CAN):
The Mild Cleansing Lotion with its very effective yet extra mild nature-derived cleansing complex removes make-up effectively & protects the skin from drying out.

Why I like it:
  • Removes makeup dirt & oil.
  • Moisturizing.
  • Fragrance-free.

Simple Foaming Cleanser ($7.99 to $10.00 CAN):
Our Foaming Cleanser is a perfect blend of skin-loving ingredients and Pro-Vitamin B5 to remove impurities and remaining traces of makeup. Your skin will feel cleansed, refreshed and moisturized. Perfect even for sensitive skin.

Why I like it:
  • It's foamy.
  • Has vitamins which are good for the skin.
  • Noncomedogenic.

Olay Fresh Effects Long Live Moisture! Satin Finish Lotion ($14.99 US):
Fresh and feather-light, get the rich hydration of a lotion but with the lightweight feel of a gel. Now your skin is soft and smooth for up to 24 hours.

Why I Like it:
  • It's light.
  • Doesn't make me oily.
  • A little goes a long way.
