Crème Simon is a French skincare brand that uses over 90% natural ingredients, and natural skincare brands always get me all excited, especially if the products are free of parabens, alcohol, silicones, sulphates and colouring.
Crème Simon was founded in 1860 by Joseph Simon, a talented young apothecary. He was searching for a remedy to relieve dry chapped hands that laundresses were so prone to, which eventually led to his discovery of a cream power packed with seven types of flowers and plants with incredible healing properties. This concoction is also known as the Activ-Fleur Complex, an essential ingredient in all Crème Simon products till today.
Did you know that at the height of its popularity, Crème Simon was the most coveted beauty treatment in its era and sold out in Paris, New York and Asia? Pretty impressive, if you ask me.
Similarly, I generally prefer cream-based or oil-based makeup removers in colder climates, but in Singapore, micellar water makeup removers are my favourite.
Unlike most micellar make-up removers, Crème Simon's version is able to remove eye make-up (including water-proof eyeliners) effortlessly. In fact, I use this a one-step makeup remover for both my face and eyes.
Most importantly, no rubbing is required at all, which makes it perfect for eye make-up removal as you wouldn't want to run the risk of getting wrinkles due to excessive rubbing.
Did you know that this makeup remover is fortified with Wheat Oligosaccharides Complex which supposedly reduces pigmentation as well? I've been grappling with pigmentation issues for eons and would love to see what this product can do in the longer term.
While I have yet to witness its brightening effects given that I have just started using it, I would highly recommend this product if you're looking for a lightweight makeup remover that provides heavy duty action with a heavenly scent to boot.
It may have taken me a while to finally get acquainted with Crème Simon's products as I was away during their launch last year, but nonetheless, it is always better late than never. After trying their Micellar Water Makeup Remover for a couple of weeks, I am now officially hooked.
The lovely ladies at Crème Simon subsequently surprised me with more products recently, so if you're interested, do keep your eyes peeled as I will certainly share my review with you in due course.
