Simple Reviews

Simple skincare is a simple, fuss-free range free from nasties such as harsh chemicals, colours or perfumes which can be found in other brands. Originating in the 1960's, Simple has been on beauty shelves for years and update their formulas to help us remain beautiful.

Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes ★★★★
Price: $6.99
Size: 25 wipes
About: cleansing facial wipes enriched with vitamins that cleanse skin and remove makeup. Packaged in green plastic resealable pack.
Review: I have tried many facial cleansing wipes over the years and only one has stood out considerably... until now. The first time I tried these I really disliked the oily film they left on my skin but years later the formula has improved greatly and Cleansing Facial Wipes are honestly one of my favourites on the market. They do everything they claim: they are gentle, do not irritate my skin or my sensitive eyes, they remove makeup (including waterproof mascara that just won't budge), they are free from nasties like alcohol, oil, fragrance and colour which is exactly what I want in a facial wipe - especially the oil-free factor because so many products containing oil either leave a build-up on my skin or they creep into my eyes and irritate them. The wipes are strong and don't fall apart whilst using but still soft enough to offer a luxurious clean at a really affordable price point. The best thing about these is that they do not dry skin out or leave a residue and can be found at most supermarkets and pharmacies around the country. So glad I gave these wipes a second chance because now I buy Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes time and time again.
Tip: once you have cleansed the skin, give the wipe a good rinse and then run it over the skin again for the freshest feel guaranteed.

Simple Conditioning Eye Make-Up Remover ★★★★
Price: $9.99
Size: 125ml
About: gentle eye makeup remover specifically for sensitive eyes but suitable for all skin types. Packaged in clear plastic bottle with twist-lid.
Review: Conditioning Eye Make-Up Remover does the trick: it removes eye makeup, without burning my sensitive eyes. The best method to make it work effectively is to apply some to damp cleansing pads and gently hold them against closed eyelids, rolling the pads side-to-side against the ball of the eye. This prevents the product from entering the eye. When it does get into my eye, Conditioning Eye Makeup Remover does irritate a little but my eye drops help to wash it out. With patience this remove all traces of eye makeup - it doesn't just come off in one easy swoop...but it will happen.

Simple Daily Radiance Cleansing Wipes ★★★
Price: $7.99
Size: 25 wipes
About: cleansing facial wipes to clean and freshen skin. Packaged in a resealable pack.
Review: While I am a big fan of cleansing and makeup removing wipes, Daily Radiance Cleansing Wipes are slightly different to the rest. First of all, they are not makeup removers - they are more of a cleansing wipe as the name suggests. They remove impurities and traces of makeup but will not thoroughly cleanse the skin as such. So if you are seeking a cleanser or a pick-me-up midday then this is perfect for you.

Simple Purifying Cleansing Lotion ★★★
Price: $9.99
Size: 200ml
About: a milky cleanser designed to remove traces of dirt and grime and suitable for all skin types.
Review: Used twice daily, Purifying Cleansing Lotion has not left a great impression on me...I would prefer to spend a little extra for a more luxurious feel, something that leaves my skin feeling hydrated because Purifying Cleansing Lotion didn't fulfil my expectations. My thoughts however, were not negative from the first use... I enjoyed the product to start with, but after a while it was no longer invigorating on my skin and my skin did not respond to it in the same manner it did originally, and I am not sure why.

Used this range years and years ago, ideal for younger skin I say :)
