Meet Simone France - The New "It" Girl

Okay. Little secret I've been keeping for the past two weeks...about my face. It's true,  I have been withholding some verrrry important skincare information from you girls, which I've been bursting to tell y'all about.

My secret's name is Simone France and she is my new best friend.

I know y'all don't see me everyday or in real life, but trust me when I say, Simone France has changed my complexion dramatically.

I was recently contacted by sweet Kate from Simone France to see if I was interested in testing out some of the SF products. After checking out their website and reading up on the product line, it took me approximately two seconds to reply back with an enthusiastic, "yes!"

My loot...pretty amazing, huh?

Because we all love a good fun fact, here are a couple:
  • Simone France is the renowned French-born skin care expert whose healing hands and top-of-the-line products have cared for some of the world's most beautiful faces. She built a cult-like following while giving facials to Cindy Crawford, Linda Evangelista, Iman, Elle MacPherson and thousands of other women.
  • Renowned hairstylists and make up artists such as famed make-up maven Laura Mercier, Francois Nars (founder of NARS) and Sue Devitt, also on Simone France's client roster, regularly recommend her to their clients for the best in skincare products.
The first step in getting me set up with the right products was the diagnosis.

I was given a complete skin analysis (as all Simone France customers are given) before the products were sent, as Simone France works to target each individual skin type based on specific skincare needs. My skin is incredibly dry lately and a little lackluster. I really just wanted that dewy, Hollywood 'glow', so SF recommended:

-Rich Milk (a gentle cleanser)
-Soap (sounds funny, but this basic, cleansing bar has honestly been my favorite product!)

-French Formula Moisturizer (for whipping my skin back into baby-soft condition.)
-Disposable Cleansing Cloths (strangely addictive...makes your skin feel cleaner than a wash cloth.)

So with all of these products, I thought I'd be a little overwhelmed. However, enclosed in the box of goodies was a handy-dandy pamphlet that outlined specific instructions for both Day and Night cleansing rituals.

The most integral part of Simone France is The Sandwich®. Yep, you read that correctly, The Sandwich®. In their own words, Simone France says:

The Sandwich® is a unique combination of moisturizer, scrub and soap, each specifically formulated to work together in an unusual way, along with disposable cleansing cloths that are positively addicting. Don't worry about using soap - the special Sandwich® method allows you to get the cleansing benefits of soap with absolutely none of the dryness.

Here are just some of the reviews from famous sources in the skincare/cosmetics biz:

"The Simone France Sandwich® is the Fountain of Youth."- Amy Astley, Editor, Teen Vogue Magazine

"Simone's skincare is the best!"- Laura Mercier, Make-up Artist to Madonna

"Everyone comments on how youthful my skin looks, and I owe a lot of that to Simone's products" - Sue Devitt, celebrity make-up artist whose work has graced the runways of  Versace, Dolce & Gabbana, Alberta Feretti, Valentino, Oscar de la Renta and Marc Jacobs.


The Verdict:

The snapshot above was taken yesterday afternoon with my iPhone, (because I wanted y'all to get a real, non-Photoshopped-to-heck-and-back glimpse of what my skin looks like), embodies how I feel about this product line. I think the Simone France regime has made my eyes look brighter and even decreased my crow's feet lines around my eyes, in addition to just evening out my overall skin tone!

I've already put a reminder in my phone to re-order in 8 weeks (about the time I should be getting low.) I refuse to go back to my old regime.

So yeah, consider me a Simone France girl. And you, my dear friends, should be, too.

P.S.- Please go read this post on my SIL Sarah's blog about Friendship. It's beautifully written and very eloquently says how I believe we all feel sometimes. Sarah is a beautiful person, inside and out, and has been one of my rocks throughout the past few weeks. Do yourself a favor and get to know my sweet sistah!

Be blessed, lovelies-


  1. Wow, your skin is positively lovely, ma'am!! You may have just sold me on this product, or at least trying it!! And this is coming from a die-hard Clinique girl!! :)

  2. Um, I'm going to need them to send me from free product immed. HA!!! Seriously, your skin looks so good! I have never even heard of this product but if Cindy Crawford uses it (and she has NOT aged at all) then sign a girl up!

  3. I absolutely have to try this. Thanks so much for recommending it!

    You look absolutely great! So glad everyday is getting better!!

  4. You look great! How much more time do you spend in this regimine than before?

  5. Illegally Blonde- I LOVE that you asked this question! Honestly, the morning routine takes about 5 minutes, evening takes around 3. Pretty short, really!

  6. Your skin looks beautiful! I constantly struggle with my complexion. I am pale so any blemish or "uneven-ness" really shows up. I may have to try this out!

    I am glad you're doing better! Have a good weekend, girl!

  7. very awesome :D i'll have to check this stuff out for myself sometime.

  8. Your skin looks fabulous girl! I only wish this stuff was more affordable. I know it's 100% worth the money spent I can tell. But with my budget I won't be able to partake in the magic right now :) Which is disappointing because I think all women should be able to take care and spoil themselves on something as amazing as this! :)

  9. You look fantastic, I'll be sure to check out their line!

  10. I have never heard of this skin care line before. Looks like the reviews are great! I'm going to check out the website now!

  12. you look GORG in your vlog. and it's great to hear you are feeling better!

  13. I'm so glad you're back and feeling better. You look beautiful!

  14. Girl, it's so good to see you and hear your voice and know everything is a-okay on your end! You were in my prayers, friend. I am sending hugs and smiles and am just so glad you're doing so well...

    And you look fantastic to boot! Just saying. You do.

  15. Forgive me if I typed this twice - I thought I did, on this post. Be honest (because I am truly considering your recommendation for this line), are you still using any foundation and/or powder?

  16. Hi Twinkletoes- You posted on the 3/19 post and I replied back in the comments : )

  17. I've used the sandwich and though it cleansed my face well, I used the products for dry skin and I still felt the scrub was too much for me. the people at Simone France are wonderful but I couldn't handle the products. They told me not to use the scrub very often but it was difficult trying to figure out what moisturizer I should use. I didn't get any anti aging benefits from the products. They may work for you but they didn't help my skin at all though it was clean and felt good. It's too time consuming to use because their are lot's of steps and becomes very expensive use.


What'cha got?
