I’m sure you’ve seen this brand around before, but did you know where it came from and their philosophy?
SIMPLE hails from the UK, and they’ve been the experts in dealing with sensitive skin since their creation of the new perfume-free and colour-free soap back in 1960. Their philosophy of using only the purest skin-loving ingredients as well as staying colour-free and perfume-free has remained steadfast since 1960, and they believe that looking and feeling good should be Simple, not complicated!
I’ve had a brief history with this brand back during my teenage days – their gentle cleanser was a staple in my family bathroom for quite a while! Recently, they’ve launched their Micellar Water range of makeup cleansing products – Meet the Simple Micellar Water (in a bottle, 200ml) and Micellar Wipes (25 pcs in a pack)!
I have a thing for micellar cleansers – ever since my first experience with them, I’ve been mostly using micellar water for makeup removal due to how gentle and fuss-free it is.
Micelles are present in all cleansers actually, and are extremely effective in oil and dirt removal without being harsh to your skin. Of course, most micellar water removers will still require you to rinse off again – not that I don’t do that (it’s a habit to), but have you ever come across situations when you fall into a food coma and just want to sleep immediately upon reaching home?
IT HAPPENS TO ME ALL THE TIME.
And it happened to me just recently when I had my Simple Micellar Wipes lying around on my table – PERFECT! (You might have seen my spiel on Snapchat hahaha) I grabbed a piece of the cleansing wipe, removed my makeup in record time while lying down and then promptly fell asleep after. In peace. Without having to worry about make up removal or even walking to the bathroom!
Simple’s Micellar Water (in a bottle) and wipes both remove makeup without rinsing, and provides hydrating benefits (it will boost your skin’s hydration by up to 90%!) at the same time. I wouldn’t suggest not rinsing, but in situations like the one I’ve described above, or when you’re on a plane, or rushing through makeup changes – Simple’s make up wipes will come in so handy! It helps to unclog pores, and won’t leave the skin feeling tight or sticky – it promises to leave you feeling clean, refreshed and hydrated!
What I like about Simple’s Micellar Water products – there are NO artificial perfumes, colours or harsh chemicals in them! They have instead, a whole bunch of goodies!
- Triple Purified Water: Our purest possible water to minimize potential for irritation from extraneous particles or contaminants that can irritate skin.
- Vitamin B3: Known to restore, soften and smooth skin. It’s especially great for those with dry skin.
- Vitamin C: A water soluble antioxidant vitamin for skin
- Hexylene Glycol: Helps dissolve make up and kindly conditions the skin
The Micellar Water is pretty efficient at what it promises to do – my skin doesn’t feel dry or sting when I use this (some Micellar Water removers contain certain additives which stings a little). It’s extremely good for sensitive skin, which is what I’m experiencing right now with all the breakouts I’ve been having lately.
I’ve found that the wipes cleanses well enough for days when you have light and non-waterproof make up on – it also exfoliates while saving you the trouble of finding cotton pads to use with micellar water at the same time!
Simple’s Micellar Water ($16.90 for 200ml) and Wipes ($15.90 for 25 pcs) are available at all major pharmacies – Watsons, Guardian, Unity, FairPrice and online at Redmart!
