Skin Review: Simone France

When seasons change, we change the type of clothing we wear in order to adapt to the weather. Now, that I'm 30 I've learned that I should do the same with my facial skincare products. With the arrival of fall and winter, my skin starts to dry up and look dull. Luckily, I was sent a kit from Simone France and it has done wonders to help my face and neck look its best now that the temperatures are dropping and the air is getting dry.

Morning Routine

Every morning I start off with The Sandwich®.
The Simone France Sandwich is an anti-aging and skin firming treatment that with constant use will help your face look its best.  I've been using the treatment for over a little more than a month and can notice a difference in my skin. 

I use The Sandwich normal to slightly dry skin kit which includes the following:
  • 2 oz. Lovely Glow
  • 2 oz. Refining Scrub
  • 4.5 oz. Soap
  • 30 Disposable Cleansing Cloths

How I make The Sandwich?

I start by dotting Lovely Glow moisturizer all over my face and smoothing it until the skin absorbs it. I follow it with the Refining Scrub along with a quick splash of water to move the product around my face. Then I run the soap underneath the faucet and build up a lather in my hand and rub it on my face. I take disposable cloth, wet it and wipe off all three products from my face. I splash warm water on my face and follow it with cold water. I pat dry my face and dab just a bit of the Lovely Glow moisturizer.

 It seems like a lot to do, but it only takes like 5 minutes.  Afterward, my face feels smooth, refreshed and ready to go out make up free! I definitely notice more luminosity to my complexion, as opposed to it looking dull like it used to.  Plus, my face has never felt this well moisturized {the truth is I don't have to use a lot of the moisturizer and it does not feel greasy}.

Night time Routine

My Simone France kit also came with products to make sure that my face is completely cleansed of all day time debris before I go to bed.

I finish my day by dabbing and swirling Simone France's Rich Milk {has a creamy texture to it} all over my face and neck with half of a disposable cloth.  It really helps get all the gunk off my face and the proof is all in the cloth.  I follow it up with the Refreshing Toner and the other half of the disposable cleansing cloth; it's alcohol free so it doesn't dry up my face and it helps swipe off the Rich Milk to finish off the cleaning process.  My face and neck end up feeling smooth, refreshed and my pores feel like they can breathe clearly.

These products are enough to last you from 2-3 months. I've been using them for a little over a month and I still have lots of product left {more than half}.

How to Decide what products will work best for you

One of the things I liked the most was that prior to recieving any of the products, I was sent a beauty questionnaire so the rep would know what products would better suit my skin and they were dead on.

These are products that I could definitely see myself purchasing in the future, especially for the fall-winter season.
