I recently had the opportunity to do a review on the Simone France skincare products, a unique skincare line that uses the "Sandwich Method" to cleanse, tone and moisturize your skin.
I was sent the travel size kit for my skin type, which is oily/combination with some mild breakouts. This kit includes the Simone France facial soap, Complexion Perfection, Light Milk, Instant Radiance, Refreshing Toner, Light Moisturizer, Refining Scrub and disposable cleansing clothes.
I was very excited to give these products a try, since I have tried quite a few different products over the years with not much improvement to my skin. My main goal for using these products was to see my skin less oily and prone to breakouts and more even in color and tone.
The travel size contains enough products for 2-3 weeks. I tried to not go too "crazy" with my products, and am still using some of the products 3 1/2 weeks later. I found that I went through the cleansing cloths and Light Moisturizer the fastest because I was using them twice daily.
After about 2- 2 1/2 weeks, I started to notice that my skin was less oily and that I hadn't had any major breakouts during the time I was using the products. After cleansing my skin always felt completely clean and free of dirt and makeup, though not tight or dried out. My skin has also become slightly less oily when I use the products as directed.
The instructions are very easy to follow, and took only an extra 2-3 minutes each morning to complete. The travel size products were generously sized and as I mentioned before, I am still using several of the products that haven't run out yet.
All of the products has little to no smell. The one that had the most fragrance was the Instant Radiance mask, which had a slight herbal scent. It was not at all overpowering or unpleasant, though. I have been using the masks about twice a week, and really like both of them. A lot of masks would make my face red or dry, but these two masks work well and help to calm my skin and even the tone and color of it.
So, would I buy this again? Yes, I probably would consider purchasing these products again. It is hard to say what my skin would have looked liked it I would have used these products for a month or two. It definitely didn't make my skin worse, and while my skin still isn't quite as refined or blemish free as I would like, there is a possibility that it would be if I continued these products for a month or so.
The only downside to these products is the cost, which is pretty steep if you are used to using drugstore brands of soap. But if you budgeted for them, and used the products in moderation, I think it would be a good investment, especially if you have struggled with finding good skincare products in the past.
Overall, I would highly recommend this line to anyone who is looking to make a difference in the skin. The website offers products for all skin types (oily, aging, dry, etc.), so you are bound to find something that fits your needs.
Thanks again, Simone France, for letting me review your products!

I was not payed to do this review. I simply asked the company if they would be willing
to let me review their products and give my review and they agreed.
