"Thank you David and Robin for creating this wonderful natural skin care range.
I feel very fortunate to have discovered it soon after its inception over 25 years ago. I’m reaping the rewards now and can’t imagine life or my daily routine without it. Thank you both for your continued passion, research and dedication in producing a beautiful product to protect and truly nurture our skin.
I grew up in Bundaberg and moved to Brisbane in 1980 as a 21-year-old.
Growing up close to beaches I spent a lot of time swimming in the ocean, which I still love, and I had my share of sunburn as a kid.
I’ve always enjoyed the outdoors and used to be quite sporty, and I’ve been on a few adventurous trips, exposed to the elements for weeks at a time, but because of my fair skin I’ve always applied lots of Simplicité sunscreen. I also use it on my face every day under makeup. Unlike other sunscreens, it feels and smells like a beautiful light moisturiser. I now prefer to walk in the early mornings and enjoy the sun more in the winter months when it feels warming and nourishing.
Nutritive Exfoliating and Mask
I use One-Step Exfoliating Cleanser every day and Rosehip & Lavender Complexion Refiner has been a favourite of mine for many years because it gives instant results, leaving my skin smooth and creamy. I noticed even better results once I started using it twice a week instead of just weekly. I made this change after a conversation with Robin.
My favourite serums are the Rehydration Serum and RL (Reduce Lines) Serum (for a special treat!). I love them both and feel they nourish my skin and keep it hydrated all year round.
Nutritive Hair Care
Also, I started using the Simplicité Banksia and Orange Shampoo a couple of months ago - instead of the Colour Care Shampoo (used to retain hair colour) which had been making my hair so dry for ages.
I've been loving how my hair feels so much more vital and nourished.
And my hairdresser was exclaiming how my colour was still so good since the last time - that was after six weeks of using the Simplicité shampoo!
