Product Review # 2: Simple Cleansing Gel

Hey Lovelies!

This is post number 2 of the Simple Cleanser pack review..Today's product is the Simple Refreshing Facial Wash Gel. This product is said to leave skin refreshed and revived upon use It's dermologically tested, and non- comodegenic.  I usually squirt less then a dime size of gel on my middle finger and start rubbing, I've noticed that this gel lathers well on your hand as well as when you apply to your face. The consistency is some what runny, you don't need to apply pressure to the tube at all, the product dispenses very easily. I would say that the consistency is a bit slimy if that makes sense? Now I know that may sound weird but it just has that slippery texture and feel to it. The cleanser does not have any grit to it, personally I like there to be just a little so I can feel like I have cleansed and exfoliated at the same time.
The cleanser says to rinse with lukewarm water, I end up doing this a lot of the time however, I've always heard it is beneficial to rinse with cold water to close your pores? When I do rinse my skin is left actually feeling refreshed and soft. Recently I have noticed that I have been breaking out a little, but I wouldn't blame it one the cleasner. I mean the weather for one is hot, I sweat, wear makeup and that might be clogging me up, and I do not drink enough water etc...This cleanser is super gentle, and does not irritate my eyes at all! I'm really careful not to get soap in my eyes, I just close them and wash however,sometimes they still burn. So far I am really liking this facial gel especially because just like the wipes there is no alcohol, perfumes, dyes, or irritants that can upset one's face.


Have you ever tried before? What did you think?

  1. I have a little sample of this cleanser that I got in my glossybox that I will have to try out eventually. I have SO many cleansers to get through, though. it is insane! I figured this would be nothing special- it seems like your run of the mill gentle gel cleanser. I am using Philosophy's Purity cleanser right now, which is also a plain jane gentle cleanser IMO, albeit a lot more expensive!!

    1. Yea like I don't really know what to think of it...It's gently and it feels good afterward and I like it but I'm getting pimples ughh! The only draw back is I don't really know when to stop you know..at least with a grit formula you feel like your face has been cleaned, with this it lathers a bit and then it's just slimy?

  2. I got the sample in my glossybox too, but have yet to try it. Like steph, I am swimming in cleansers to get through! I also like a little bit of grit - I am all about exfoliators, but I will still use this one eventually... Thanks for the review ahead of time :)

    1. Your welcome! It feels wonderful after it's off but I dislike it for the fact that it's a gel without any grit. I have been using it on and off...I'll use this to get most of the makeup off and I'll go ahead with another product that exfoliates a little:)

    1. Like anything there's ups and downs to it:) I use it on and off, I've been alternating between that, my Acne Solutions (Clinique), and my home made remedy thing.. I'm also on a cleanser quest..any suggestions?

    2. I actually really really like Clarins Gel Marula Cleanser! I've been using it almost every day for the past month! I have dry skin so this is pretty moisturizing and removes every bit of makeup!
