Join Us for a Twitter Chat with Simple on All Things Skincare!


We’re giving away 20 sets of these sensitive skin-friendly products from Simple during our Twitter chat with Simple on April 23 at 1:00pm ET!

As much as we love testing the latest and greatest eye treatment or face serum, we know first hand that it’s easy to get overwhelmed by the newest high tech ingredients and all the different ways that they can help. Sometimes, a minimalist approach is the gentlest and most effective way to tend to our skin’s woes.

We discovered Simple Skincare through one of our editors who swears by their classic lightweight moisturizer. We’re big fans of their products since they’re free of dyes, artificial perfumes, and harsh irritants that aggravate skin—which makes them ideal for anyone with sensitive skin.

We’re excited to say that tomorrow at 1:00pm ET we’ll be hosting a Twitter chat with the experts at Simple! They’ll be answering any and all of your questions related to skincare, from what ingredients you should look for—and avoid—in a face cleanser to the food you should be eating to make your skin glow.

Tweet your questions in advance with the hashtag #AskSimple—and make sure you’re following @Birchbox and @SimpleSkincare! Plus, just by participating, you’ll be entered to win one of 20 collections of skincare products from Simple, including their Protecting Light Moisturizer with SPF 15, Eye Make-Up Remover Pads, and Soothing Eye Balm! See official rules here.

The British Brand That Totally Won Over My Sensitive Skin


During my junior year of college I fell in love with Edinburgh (above) and a standout UK-based skincare brand.

Growing up, I always considered myself a beauty rookie since I rarely played with makeup. (A by-product of having a big brother who teaches you to love cars and cloaked comic book characters as a kid). But during college, I realized that I had become something of a skincare connoisseur because of my sensitive, acne-prone skin. I was always on the lookout for the gentlest yet most effective products. By freshman year, I’d tried nearly every drugstore line I could find, given Proactiv a trial run, and finally acknowledged a tiny addiction to clay face masks.

By the time I moved to Edinburgh, Scotland for my junior year abroad, I was pretty well-versed in what really worked for my finicky complexion. So you can imagine my excitement when I found a British brand to fill in for the American mainstays that got lost in an EuRail baggage debacle. Guys, if you haven’t heard of them yet, let me introduce you to Simple Skincare.
