I purchased this product from my local boots store for £3.59, which is for 150ml of the facial wash. You can also purchase this from Superdrug and good supermarkets, prices may vary.
~ PACKAGING ~
The product comes in a white tube which stands up on its lid which is a light green in colour. These colours are used throughout the simple range packaging so it's easy to identify and find the Simple products when looking for them in store. On the front on the packaging it states that the facial wash is kind to skin and is moisturising, and also contains vitamin goodness for naturally healthy skin. On the back of the packaging there is a list of ingredients and how to use the product. There is also a website address in which you can find out more information about the product or contact the people at Simple should you have any queries or questions about the product or the Simple brand itself.
~ USING THE PRODUCT ~
I splashed water onto my face to ensure it was wet when using the facial wash. I flipped the cap open and squeezed gently to dispense a small amount of the facial wash. The product is creamy white in colour and has no smell to it. I worked the facial wash into a lather and then massaged onto my wet skin using circular movements. The product felt really soft and smooth against my skin and also felt light. As the product did lather up, I really felt as though this was giving my face a good clean. I splashed some water onto my face a few times to rinse the wash off, I only needed to do this a few times and the foam from the wash came off easily. I patted my face dry with a clean, soft towel.
~ RESULTS ~
I have used some facial washes before and they have left my skin feeling tight and dry. I have sensitive skin so I often find it difficult to find product to suit my skin, especially as I often suffer from outbreaks of eczema every now and again. After rinsing the facial wash off my skin felt really soft and it felt so refreshed and clean. My skin didn't feel tight at all and certainly didn't feel or look dry. I applied some moisturiser (simple moisturiser) after patting my face dry and waited for it to soak in. The results were amazing, my skin felt so soft and felt so clean. I don't often get spots on my face; how-ever there may be a certain time of the month where I may get one or two which seem to pop up. Since using the wash the spot outbreak has become even less, which means I know the product is doing a fantastic job of cleaning my skin. The product is so kind to my skin I am confident in using it every morning.
~OVERALL OPINION ~
I have been using Simple products for a good 5-7 years now and have always been really impressed with the results of the products. When choosing skincare products I always opt for simple as I know they don't use perfume or colour in their products which means they won't irritate my skin. Although I have very high faith in simple products I was worried that the facial wash would dry out my skin a little and make it feel tight. I was very impressed that the facial wash did neither of these things and it made my skin feel so clean and soft. I often use the facial wash along with a facial buffer which I purchased from Superdrug; this helps to exfoliate my skin and makes it even smoother. I would highly recommend this product to others, especially if like me you suffer from dry, sensitive skin. I give this product 5 out of 5 stars. Once I have used this I will be buying this product again as it's a brand I know and can trust when it comes to skincare.
