Simple Water Boost Skin Quench Sleeping Cream is a fairly new night cream that’s designed for seriously thirsty skin. What’s it actually like though?
Simple Water Boost Skin Quench Sleeping Cream: First Impressions
- I picked up Simple Water Boost Skin Quench Sleeping Cream in a lockdown Boots order a few months ago. Mainly out of curiosity to see if anything could beat Boots own-brand Cucumber Moisturising Cream.
- Despite the massively long name, it’s basically a night cream for very dry and dehydrated skin.
- I’m a big fan of this Water Boost range from Simple. There’s a day cream too, which is also great.
- It’s designed for dry and sensitive skin. It doesn’t sting when I put it over any dry areas, and when my skin’s feeling sensitive, this doesn’t irritate it either.
- I did write about the original Simple night cream years ago. I’d used it for years until they changed the formula and it suddenly started breaking me out. I was worried that this cream would do the same – but thankfully, it hasn’t.
- It’s a highly rich cream, but at the same time, it’s light too. It’s quite unlike any other night cream I’ve tried.
- When I apply this before bed, I do need to use a fair amount to quench my skin’s thirst, but it does do the trick once you’ve slathered enough on.
- Due to how much you have to use, it does tend to run out fairly quickly. (We’re talking once a month, roughly, with daily use.)
- It has “11% hydrating actives” in it. I’ll level with you, I’m not entirely sure what that means, but it sounds… hydrating, doesn’t it?
- This Simple night cream also has Vitamin E, plant-based prebiotic, and minerals. (All good ingredients for your skin.)
- Simple state that this product is suitable for vegans, although it doesn’t appear to be cruelty-free as there’s no leaping bunny pic anywhere on the packaging.
- Weirdly, the packaging states that it “helps reverse hydration overnight” which doesn’t make sense, does it? I think they might mean dehydration.
- You get 50ml for £6.99, although it is often on offer for around half price, so pick some up then instead!
Should you try this night cream?
If you suffer from dry and sensitive skin, I would certainly give this a go! If you have combination or greasy skin, I’d probably opt for something a little lighter.
I do really like this night cream, and I feel like it’s a good product to keep on my skincare shelf, particularly for those nights where my skin has been dried out by the elements.
