Review: Simple Micellar Cleansing Wipes

Today’s review is for the cleansing step. There’s a Landers store that just opened a few weeks ago near our area. So we stopped by and bought some items. Of course, I had to see the cosmetic brands in there. It’s just the same with S&R. There’s Cetaphil, Dove and Ponds. I bought Simple’s wipes. I heard a lot of good things about it.

Pros:
– Affordable, around 199 pesos at Landers for 25 sheets
– Available locally in Landers and department stores
– Oil-free
– Fragrance-free
– Effectively removes full coverage face makeup (foundation, concealer and powder)

Cons:
– Stung a little
– Triggered my contact dermatitis
– Tissue is rough for sensitive skin
– Smells like soda cracker

As you can see from the cons, I’m kind of disappointed that it triggered my contact dermatitis. It removes full coverage makeup just like the other wipes I’ve tried. It smells like soda cracker, just like Etude House’s Baking Powder Pore Cleansing Tissues (Oil Type). It leaves a film but goes away in seconds. Even if it goes away, it’s best to proceed with your facial wash. It stung a little and the tissue was rough for me which caused mild redness for a few minutes. I didn’t see anything special about it except that it’s free from fragrance, oil and color. This is ideal for someone who wants to avoid those and if you do not have hypersensitive skin.
