Product Review | Simple Micellar Water Make-Up Remover Wipes

Wednesday, August 19, 2015

When I found out Simple Skincare was coming out with their new Micellar Make-Up Remover Wipes**, I was stoked. It's no secret I'm a huge fan of their Micellar Cleansing Water and their Cleansing Facial Wipes. But now they made sweet sweet love and had a baby?? This spawn is what my dreams are made of!

Having ran out of the Cleansing Facial Wipes during my previous travels, my recent trip to Montreal was the perfect time to take these new wipes for a test drive!

I didn't bring with me any other makeup removers or wipes. They were indeed, everything I needed. Just like the Cleansing Facial Wipes these are slightly textured to make sure they grip on any makeup that is on your face.

The claims:
  1. Gently cleanses skin, leaving it instantly hydrated and refreshed with no residue left behind.
  2. Removes impurities, even the toughest makeup, with just one wipe.
  3. No alcohol or oil, so no dry and greasy feel!
  4. Made with triple-purified water to help remove contaminants known to irritate skin.

As far as I can tell, this is all very true. Now there's not a whole lot more to say about these, as they are wipes. But they do an excellent job at removing most of your makeup (yes even waterproof mascara). When I say "most" maybe that sounds like a bad thing, but NO wipe will ever take away the need to go back in with a cleanser afterwards and most of them do leave some smudging from mascara/eyeliner (at least for me). So no matter what wipe I use, I then cleanse, and tend to go back over with an eye makeup remover. That being said, the whole thing behind this skincare line is that they cater to sensitive skin. I had mentioned, while talking about some of the cons of the Micellar Cleansing Water that I didn't feel it was as gentle as can be on the eye area. To this day I prefer to use the cleansing water as a morning cleanser or to refresh during the day when I'm not wearing makeup (or very little makeup such as a dash of BB cream). These wipes, however, can handle a full face of makeup and are SUPER gentle, even on the eye area. Now there's not a huge difference between these and the Cleansing Facial Wipes, the added bonus, is my favorite thing about the cleansing water ; instant hydration. No, it doesn't leave any kind of residue and it doesn't MOISTURIZE the skin, but the skin feels refreshed, plump and smooth. Am I making any sense? It makes sense to me! haha

These are perfect for traveling, to throw in your gym bag or to keep on your bed side table for those nights when you're too lazy and/or partied to hard (I ain't judging, and using these is better than nothing!)...As of now, these wipes will soon be available at Target and will retail for $6.99.

All in all I'm thoroughly impressed with these wipes and would recommend them. I do prefer them to the Cleansing Facial Wipes which make me wonder where they will now stand in their line of products but hey! Maybe some people prefer those!

Have you tried the Micellar Cleansing Water yet? Would you try these as well? Let me know!
