I can go out without makeup now
I discovered Simplicité from a friend of mine at the perfect time 2 years ago. I was going through a major ongoing breakout that was unlike any I had experienced before, even as a teenager.
I later realized this was related to a period of high stress and associated rapid weight loss that was wreaking havoc on my face!
I started using Simplicité products and noticed the difference in my skin's moisture and oil balance almost immediately. I was nervous to apply oil (Sage Face Oil) to my already oily skin, but since using their products I haven't had to blot my face at all, which I used to do periodically throughout the day.
Not only that, but my redness improved dramatically, all the breakouts cleared and the overall texture has improved. For the first time in many years I've had the confidence to go out without makeup on, and it feels great!
I love that Simplicité products are plant based and are designed to be gentle and work with the skin's pH. They are the first products I've used that I feel truly nourish my skin rather than fight the issue with harsh ingredients.
I'm so happy I discovered these products and recommend them to my patients and friends all the time.

Great for antiageing and sensitive skin
Sensitive skin has been my huge issue for the last 20 years.
Until I found Simplicité I despaired of ever finding a good beauty regime that would kind to my skin and not cause painful inflammation and irritation.
I also had huge dramas with cystic acne as a teenager and at 40 still have a lot of acne scarring.
The One Step Exfoliating Cleanser was the first of the Simplicité products that I used. True to its promise, it started clearing congestion from my clogged pores straight away. I had blackheads that were lifting straight off when I next cleansed - I could not believe it! The clean feel of my skin after using One Step keeps bringing me back to this fantastic product and my skin always feels clean and fresh after every use. I love the smell of the natural raw ingredients. It smells divine, it’s not perfumed like other brands and is great for my sensitive skin.
I now have a beauty regime with all the Simplicité products and have found reduced lines, reduced acne scarring and cleaner, healthier and much younger looking skin. I certainly owe this to Simplicité without a doubt.
My 14 year old teenage daughter with breakout, oily skin has been using mostly the same Simplicité products as me (Plant Gel Cleanser for Combination Oily skin, One Step Exfoliating Cleanser, Sage Face Oil and Day Creme) - she also uses the Acne Antibacterial Serum. Her skin was very congested with many breakouts but it has been gradually improving since she started using Simplicité products and now looks noticeably better.
She uses the One Step Exfoliating Cleanser twice a day and doing this has reduced the inflammation in her skin significantly.
I am extremely happy with all the Simplicité products in my routine and both my daughter and I will continue to use them.
Large pores reduced, no breakouts
If you’re thinking of giving the One Step Exfoliating Cleanser a go – go for it. I have a problem with large pores and very sensitive skin. Normally, exfoliators make my skin worse (I break out and pores get even bigger!). This product is not only gentle on my skin… but actually works. Since I've been using it I've noticed my skin tone has evened out and my pores are looking smaller. Well worth the price!
My skin has never felt and looked this good.
I could honestly talk about Simplicité for days, but the point is that there is nothing else like it. I have tried so many brands over the years and nothing even comes close. People are always asking me what I use for my skin and I am so happy to tell them.
I am now 25 years old and have been using Simplicité for about two years. I know that I will never use any other skin care brand.
As a personal trainer and aspiring actor I have always been conscious of my appearance and pride myself on taking great care with my skin. As a teenager I was always searching for the perfect skin treatments for acne - if only I knew about Simplicité then life would have been much easier!
The environment in and out of the gym makes it difficult for me to keep my skin clean but products such as the Acne Antibacterial Serum help this so much. The serum is my favourite product as it keeps my skin fresh and free of any bacteria that can get on my face between training clients and training myself.
Some other products that have made massive improvements on my skin over time are the Plant Gel Cleanser, One Step Exfoliating Cleanser, Rosemary Blemish Gel, Rosehip and Lavender Complexion Refiner and of course Sage Face Oil. These products work like dynamite and prevent any type of acne and oily skin.
My advice for good skin: get on board with Simplicité and the rest will fall into place :)
Help at last for breakouts
"I have always had troubled skin so trust me when I say I've tried everything. I'd been having horrible breakouts, waking up every day to a new problem. So in January I had had enough and decided I needed to completely change my skin care.
Simplicité had been highly recommended so I abandoned all my old products and started using the Trial Pack for Combination/Oily Skin along with the Acne Antibacterial Serum (sold separately).
In the first month this serum was a life saver as it helped my skin calm down and got rid of all the redness and inflammation. This serum is a bit of magic - turning any potentially problem breakouts into a non-issue.
I have been using these products for 4 months now and my skin is looking and feeling better than ever. I am constantly being complimented on how clear it is and how radiant it looks (to which I credit the Sage Face Oil).I am so happy with the results and the quality of the products. Simplicité is much more than just natural or organic skin care – it’s the power of their handcrafted, fresh medicinal grade plant extracts that is restoring and rejuvenating my skin.
Now, to do the same for my acne scarring I'm applying the Antioxidant Plant Serum twice daily. I'm very excited for the results.
Also, for the record, the only thing on my skin in that second picture is the Antioxidant Plant Serum!"
No more lumps under my skin
I was introduced to Simplicité after hearing about it through colleagues and as soon as I tried the products I was hooked. I’m 27 and before using Simplicité I had small bumps under the skin on my cheeks, like a mild acne.
What I loved from the beginning is that this truly is an all-natural skin care product. I could actually identify every product on the ingredients list and was so happy to even see Australian bush natives used.
At first I was reluctant to use the Face Oil in the Trial Pack as I thought it would contribute to my oiliness. After Robin gave me some instructions I then used used it with the products in the Trial Pack and absolutely loved them all. Within a few months the lumps under my skin (which had been there since my teen years) had vanished. I loved my new beauty routine and my skin felt amazing.
I have now been using Simplicité for some years now and have tried nearly all of the range. What I like most about using Simplicité products is that they all smell amazing and feel wonderful and also they give you peace of mind because you know that you aren’t exposing your skin to harmful products.
Despite my initial reservations about oiliness, my favourite product is the Sage Face Oil, which makes my skin feel moisturised and dewy without being heavy. A couple of my other favourites are Lemon Night Creme (smells beautiful), and Plant Gel Cleanser (a lovely daily treat) – and there are many more.
I am exceptionally thankful to Robin and David for creating a quality product that is completely natural and animal friendly. I cannot speak highly enough of all of their Simplicité products.
Roaccutane could not fix my'terrible' acne
I had terrible acne for 17 years but now my skin is so clear that I don’t even wear makeup! As a bonus, even my acne scars and sun spots faded away.
What caused this miracle? When I found the acne clearing, beautiful range of Simplicité skin care products.
I had awful acne from the age of 15. I used Roaccutane (twice!) and as well, tried everything that beauticians and doctors could offer.
Nothing worked. Well some things seemed to in the short term, but the results never lasted.
I had so many strong peels and every other sort of beauty treatment on offer. The acne stayed and my skin just became flaky, dry or dull.
But then I found Simplicité products after I moved from Argentina to Australia. I’m a vegan so when I heard that these organic and natural products actually gave results I was very interested.
Of course I was skeptical at the start because I had tried so many products in my life and also the Simplicité is very gentle.
But I know that they are very different to just ‘natural’ and also that they’re powerful as well as being so gentle!
Paola used the breakout
I've had no breakouts or blackheads at all since I've used Simplicité
I had suffered a few years of stress related acne breakouts; I also had areas of scarring on my cheeks from these breakouts, and blackheads on my nose. I’d tried to fix this with a lot of brands, including Neutrogena, Clinique, Proactive and Nutrimetics. Nothing helped, and as I have very sensitive skin I suffered allergic reactions to several of these products.
I started using Simplicité products in November 2007. Within 3-4 weeks my skin was already improving and it had completely cleared up in less than three months. I found the products pleasant to use and non-irritating. I have never had any problems with sensitivity and I am very happy to say that since I have used Simplicité I have had no breakouts at all.
David and Robin suggested I use the following products in my daily routine:
- Plant Gel Cleanser (for combination, oily, breakout skin)
- One Step Exfoliator (clears pores)
- Hydrating Floral Toning Lotion (hydrates, helps serum and oils absorb more deeply into skin)
- Anti-Oxidant Plant Serum (reduces scarring)
- Sage Face Oil (deeply hydrates without oiliness, helps reduce scarring)
- Oil Controlled Day Creme (protects the skin’s surface)
They also advised me to use the Exfoliating Face Treatment once or twice weekly as a mask to ‘draw’ impurities from my skin – it really works!
I had acne - but my skin is awesome now
My skin was pretty bad when I first met Robin & David – I was in Grade 10 at school and was well on the way to full blown acne. I hated it. After my first visit to their clinic, I came out armed with four products – the Plant Gel Cleanser for comb/oily skin, the One Step Exfoliator, the Sage Face Oil and the Rosemary Blemish Gel. These were simple to use – I just had to do it all twice daily. I was very diligent, especially with cleansing. I even did it as they told me to after sport at school because apparently sweating congests the pores. I really wanted my skin to look better.
It took about 3 months to really see results but then the improvement was very quick. Now my skin is awesome. I still use all the products twice a day.
The best adult acne treatments
Before I found Simplicité products I had such severe adult onset acne that I had to cover this up with a thick mask of makeup foundation when I went to work. (My job as Executive Manager for a large media corporation required a high level of presentation.) I was distressed about having to do this, especially when attending conferences in holiday destinations – I felt so out of place wearing my mask of makeup when everyone was dressed casually.
But Simplicité products turned out to be the best adult acne treatments I’d ever found. Previously, I’d been frustrated and saddened to learn that I had very little choice other than invasive cosmetic procedures or high level of drugs with tremendous side effects.
I read an article about David and Robin and was delighted when David outlined a plan for me to overcome the adult acne. I used the Simplicité products for breakouts and acne including the Acne Antibacterial Serum as well as the internal cleansing remedy Herbal Skin Cleanser capsules. Within three to four months the aggressive breakouts had settled and by six months the outbreaks had stopped completely and the scarring had greatly diminished. I kept taking the capsules for a few more months to make sure.
12 months later my skin was still free of breakouts and acne and looked fresh, even toned and healthy – with or without make up!
I still use and love the full range of products for Combination Dry Oily Skin, including the Results Lift Gel. My skin is beautiful and I love it!
