If you’ve been around these parts for a while, you might remember my skin care woes I shared about a year ago. After my hormones started to regulate, my skin was a giant mess and continued to be so for about a year. I had constant breakouts, and I was so sick of my less than flawless skin.
About four months ago, I read a review that Teri did about a skin care company called Simone France . I was more than intrigued when she wrote about how the products the company offered were the only thing that really worked for her skin. After much thought, I decided to contact the company to see if they would let me try the products out for myself.
Let me preface this by saying that Simone France has some of the best customer service I have ever dealt with. Almost immediately after inquiring about trying the products out, Penny emailed me back with a skin care survey (that every customer fills out) to tell her more about my skin. We then conversed about what products would be best for my skin before Penny sent me them to review.
I am not going to lie, I was blown away at how generous this company was with letting me try their products. I was sent the full line for my skin type to try, and I couldn’t wait to dive in.
I actually received these products mid-November and have been using them religiously ever since. I didn’t write about the products sooner because I wanted to give my skin time to really get used to the products and see how they worked in the long run.
I never want to use anything else on my face for as long as I live.
I’m serious. This is the first line that has worked on my skin in YEARS. What seemed like a rigorous routine at first really only takes three to five minutes in the morning and at night.
In the morning, I use the “Sandwich” method – one of Simone France’s signature methods. This provides daily exfoliation without rubbing my skin raw. My face always feels fresh and smooth every single morning.
Every evening I use three to four products. I start with Light Milk which takes away all of my makeup, even my mascara. It is a gentle cleanser, and I am still amazed at how well it works taking everything off. After, I follow up with Gentle Toner which gives my skin a deeper clean feeling and gets the rest of my makeup out of my large pores. I end my routine with light moisture cream and blemish erase (which is seriously a miracle worker). I love the blemish eraser because it uses all natural ingredients such as different oils to help calm the skin and get rid of blemishes.
Odds and Ends
Every so often, I use three other products on my skin. Complexion Perfection and Instant Radiance are used 1-2 times per week as facial masks. The Lovely Glow cream is used whenever I get dry patches on my face or if I want a heavier moisturizer at night.
My products also came with cleansing wipes (which I have run out of and didn’t get to photograph) which are used with all of the products.
My skin has been nothing but clear for the last three months (with the exception of a small blemish here or there), and I couldn’t be happier with this company. I really cannot say a negative thing about my experience with the products. Just to give you an idea of how well these products work, one morning in December a co-worker came up to me and told me that I was “glowing” and gave me a little wink. Instead I had to tell her it had nothing to do with “that” and it was just my new skin care routine. The only thing is the price – they are pretty pricey. However, they last for quite some time… and they WORK. In fact, just yesterday I ordered more product so that when I run out I won’t cry and go through withdrawals.

Simone France sent me these products to review in exchange for a review. I was not compensated for my review. All opinions are my own.
