Simple Kind to Skin Refreshing Facial Gel Wash

I was intending doing a post this morning about my new haircut but alas our electricity has been off at home since yesterday morning (thanks wind!) so I'm in no mood to take photos of my dishevelled self!

I'm STILL working through LOTS of random toiletries I've gathered at home so it was a bit random that I bought a face wash but the Mr wanted something, well, simple to try on his skin so I picked this up in Boots.

I've been an on-off user of Simple products over the years and although I'm a bit of a brand slut I've tended to go back to it in times of skin breakout.

The photos give you some more information on this particular product...

I've been fairly lucky over the years with my skin but have a regular hormonal breakout in the chin region each month which can be quite annoying. Since using this each morning on my face it seems (fingers crossed I'm not jinxing myself here) to have gone away. I've had no spots whatsoever in the 2 months or so I've been using this which is rather impressive.

It's currently priced at £3.05 in Boots on a 3 for 2 deal which I think is excellent value. It's lightly scented and I don't find the smell offensive. It lasts quite well as it doesn't seem to take much product for a quick wash. The only MINOR downside is it didn't seem to foam up for me which I quite like in a face wash but maybe that's where I've been going wrong previously?

All in all it's something I will definitely be buying again!

Have you tried any good face washes or other Simple products you'd recommend?

  1. I used to use Simple products a lot but unfortunately, in my case, they didn't do much.
    I used their Oil Balancing range which unfortunately didn't really control my shiny skin at all :-(
    But hey, my skin's very fussy and doesn't like many products (even the ones that are 2x-3x more expensive than Simple)!
    I'm glad you've found a face wash that works for you though :-)


  2. I use the oil balancing face wash. I like it but I use other face cleansers too. I love the Simple Eye Make up Remover, so sensitive and so effective. Also random, I love the roll-on deodorant :) For the price they are really great products, perfect for sensitive skin too :)

  3. Miss A - sorry to hear that. I hope you find more products that agree with you. I must admit I find some of the a bit hit and miss but for now I'm loving this a lot!

    Charlene - I agree on the price! I need a new eye make remover so must keep an eye out for the Simple one and see if I like it as much...
