But first, Simple on their cleansing wipes:

With the simple cleansing facial wipes you can lift away makeup, any dirt and impurities as well as waterproof mascara and of course it can’t go without hydrating that precious skin of yours.

These wipes are vegan and formulated without no colour, artificial perfume or harsh chemicals that would usually dry out and irritate your skin.

The wipes also don’t leave residue so sensitive skin are going to love this.

And a quick overview:

Pros

  • Formulated without artificial perfume or harsh chemicals
  • Overall suitable for sensitive skin
  • Travel friendly
  • Recyclable and the option to purchase a biodegradable pack

Cons

  • May require a little force for tougher pigmentations
  • The wipes dries out quick

How well does it remove makeup?

Let’s start with this and get it out the way, as I know that’s what we are here to know mainly.

Simple state these wipes are unforgiving with makeup and that includes waterproof mascara

This is what simple state but I actually found the wipes to not be tough enough for waterproof mascara, I tried gently but it wouldn’t successfully remove the product and I didn’t want to put more force as my eyes will start to get irritated.

The usual makeup that isn’t waterproof does wipe off with quite ease. Foundation is the most easiest to remove whereas eye makeup did require more than one wipes even if it weren’t waterproof.

For the mascara I did need to do a few rubs which did lead to some redness, probably because I went a little too hard.

Texture

Simple talk about how their fibre have been shown to be softer than silk!

Although simple makeup do say that it’s ment to be a silk touch, I didn’t really feel the softness however it wasn’t rough.

It felt like any ordinary wipe. So there is nothing really here to complain about.

Is it gentle?

With no residue, alcohol, colour, dyes, perfume and no harsh chemicals which often upset your skin, this should allow the product to be used without issues for those with sensitive skin.

Although generally these all features do make it suitable for sensitive skin, my forehead however went a little red and itchy whilst using it, I’m not sure if it’s because I haven’t used it in a while and it’s a new product or either my skin is super super fussy.

Overall I would consider it gentle compared to other makeup removers despite the small reaction, as my skin after using these wipes, weren’t left dry or overly red.

Update: My skin thankfully no longer reacts, so yep it passed the skin sensitivity test!

Packaging

The packaging is really lightweight and squeezable therefore making it travel friendly and easy to bring along. It’s much better than carrying bulky bottles around!

The outer packaging is recyclable and you have the option of purchasing a biodegradable pack which consists of wipes that are environmentally friendly.

Simple cleansing facial wipes review
For the wipes to not dry out and keep the moisture locked in as well as clean, the packaging is sealed with a resealable sticker which you can shut back after pulling the wipe out.

I did have a bit of an issue with the resealable sticker in the way that its stickiness was lost after a few usages. So I was left with the top wipe dried out!

Overall I would give these simple wipes a 7/10. I liked how quick the normal makeup came off but the waterproof products needed extra power which isn’t worth scrubbing due to my skin irritation.

I also rate the after skin touch it leaves which is a soft but not sticky feel. The texture wasn’t too bad and I also would like it if the resealable sticker was a bit more stronger or replace it with a recyclable clip lid.

If you are looking for a affordable sensitive skin wipes that remove non waterproof products (and waterproof but with a little extra effort) then I suggest you give it a try.

    Thank you

    I like this article and these cleansing wipes are what I use and I would highly recommend. I suffer with Rosacea so my skin is sensitive which I why I started to use.  

    I completely understand what you mean about the waterproof mascara but I find that if you take it slow around the eyes and a little deeper then it usually comes off fine. 

    Great information here

      Hi lmeda thanks for the comment!

      I’ll take your advice, hopefully it’ll work but I find my skin gets irritated quite quick and may not have any of it!

    This is a very convenient product, I bought a pack when I was traveling and found them so useful. Although they seem soft I do understand that you always need to be gentle and not rub. I try to wipe evenly and gently so that I get over my whole face. I’ve noticed if I hold the wipe over my eyelashes for a few moments that it will clean off my mascara more easily.

    A great product.

    Thank you for this thorough review of the Simple make-up remover wipes. I do like the Simple product range, as it is gentle on the skin, and I always use their soap. But in saying that, I am not a big fan of make-up remover wipes, because I also find that the package doesn’t seal properly after a few uses. Because the top wipe then dries out, I find it becomes more expensive to use than just cottonwool, as I have to throw away the dry wipes. 

    What I have done in the past, and it works very well, is to put the package in another resealable bag, which then helps to keep the wipes moist.

      Hey Line thanks for the comment!

      Simple are a great brand especially since they are gentle and affordable too! That’s true about the wipes actually being more expensive if you have the problem of them drying, I never thought about it that way!

      Thanks for the tip, definitely going to give that a go since I’m often using wipes!

    I can say that make-up  remover wipes are ideal for various occasions. You can put tem literally in your pocket or purse, they don’t take up a lot of space and are very practical. I used to use micellar water, but now I only use wipes because they suit me better.

      Hey Bojana thanks for the comment!

      That’s exactly why I prefer wipes too! And even more amazing know that their are biodegradable options available too!
