Keep It Simple

Simple is a UK facial skincare company (now part of Unilever). Created back in 1960, Simple claims to be the first company to create cleansing products without perfume and artificial colors. The products were designed to care for even the most sensitive skin, taking out the most common skin irritants—artificial fragrance and colors, and harsh chemicals.

Note: If you are a stickler for truly chemical-free products, check out the ingredient list, because there are some ingredients in this product that are considered problematic, such as parabens.


The Radiance Cleansing Wipes cleanse and remove impurities with gentle ingredients that include:

  • Mango extract, a source of anti-oxidants
  • Glycerin for hydration
  • Bisabolol, an anti-inflammatory to help soothe and calm skin
  • 1-methylhydantoin-2-imide, a natural amino acid to brighten and even skin tone
  • Details:

  • Oil and alcohol-free
  • Ophthalmologist-tested, hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic
  • Price: $5.49 - $6.49 SRP (suggested retail price) (25 pack)

3. Vaseline Spray & Go Moisturizer

Up, Switch, Down, Rub

Ever have to skip putting on lotion because you're running late and the lotion takes too long to absorb, making it impossible to put on your clothes (think leggings or stockings)? Vaseline's new Spray & Go Moisturizer solves that problem.


Spray & Go is a spray lotion that moisturizes and absorbs quickly, for quick application. It provides a thin spray but still delivers enough moisture to the skin without being too oily or sticky, plus absorbs (in less than 10 seconds) and dries quickly.


  • Twist-lock actuator, easy to press, that creates a targeted spray that dispenses lotion quickly and evenly, and prevents spills.
  • Bag-on-valve technology for 360-degree non-aerosol spray delivery using compressed air.
  • Contains Sratys-3 “multi-layer moisture complex”
  • Available in Aloe Fresh (with aloe), Total Moisture (pure oat extract) and Cocoa Radiant (pure cocoa butter).
  • Price: $7.99 for 6.5 oz can (30 uses)

For quick application, the company suggests the “Up, Switch, Down, Rub” method – spray up, switch hands, spray down and then rub in. (Hint--a Spray & Go sunscreen would be nice).
