Simple Skincare Facial Wipes Review


Hi Beauties.



Recently I had the opportunity to test out some facial wipes from Simple Skincare® !
The Simple brand offers 4 different types of wipes, including those tailored to cleansing, exfoliating, radiance and oil balancing. All of Simple's products contain skin-loving and gentle ingredients and vitamins, (perfect for sensitive skin!). Most importantly, all of their products contain no dyes, artificial or harsh ingredients. Yay for natural beauty products! :) 
I was lucky enough to try both the exfoliating and radiance facial wipes for sensitive skin.



Benefits of Simple exfoliating facial wipes: 
  • Dual Sided for both cleansing & exfoliating skin
  • Contain a combination of vitamins B5, E, and aloe vera to moisture, soothe and condition skin
  • Great for sensitive skin
  • No dyes or artificial perfumes, no harsh irritants
  • Dermatologist & Ophthalmologist tested (safe for contact lens wearers!) 
  • Hypoallergenic
  • Non comedogenic 

My Personal Experience with Simple Exfoliating Wipes:

These are my go-to wipes for nightly makeup removal & skincare. I love that they have 2 sides so that I'm able to both cleanse and exfoliate with just one wipe (so convenient!) The cleansing side is smooth and soft, and great for removing delicate eye makeup. The exfoliating side has a rougher texture, and is perfect for removing dead skin cells and traces of unwanted makeup that your cleanser wasn't able to remove. 
After using Simple exfoliating wipes, my face feels super clean, fresh and non-greasy. I love that these wipes are specifically formulated for sensitive skin, and never leave my skin irritated or broken out; a huge plus! 





Benefits of Simple radiance facial wipes:

  • Skin loving ingredients: Mango extract; Glycerin hydrates and nourishes; Bisabolol helps soothe and calm
  • Great for sensitive skin
  • No dyes, or artificial perfumes, no harsh irritants
  • Dermatologist & Ophthalmologist tested (safe for contact lens wearers) 
  • Hypoallergenic
  • Non-comedogenic
My Personal Experience with Simple Radiance Wipes:


Simple Radiance facial wipes are a staple in my morning skincare routine to both cleanse, and refresh my skin after a long night. These wipes leave my skin  feeling refreshed and pampered, and my face looking dewy and radiant! I love to use these wipes on-the-go, as they are a great refresher during travel, or after a heated gym sesh! ;) Both hydrating, and cleansing; these wipes are perfect for removing grime on your face while also livening up your complexion! 





My Final Verdict

Product Rating: B+

I can easily see why Simple Skincare® facial wipes are so popular in the blogger community! These wipes were non irritating, contained no harsh smells and were moisturizing. Simple's packaging is also convenient; the resealable sticker closure keeps wipes moist for each use. You also can't beat the affordable price and accessibility; Simple Skincare is available for an everyday low price at your local Walmart!
While their facial wipes did remove a good deal of makeup; I did typically still need to use my regular facial cleanser before or after use in the evenings, which accounts for my B rating.

After March 22, Walmart will be offering a FREE 7-pack of Simple wipes with the purchase of a Simple cleanser or moisturizer. (in store only)
