Simple Pure Soap
Advantages: works well on my sensitive skin, lather up really well, smell and great for cleansing my tattoos
Disadvantages: Can be quite drying especially on the body and face
I have been using simple products for a while as my skin is really quite sensitive and I have been using this product for about two weeks now. It is not the same as the product as the simple brand packaging has been updated.
*About the product*
I bought the product which is the twin/two pack of soap as it was cheaper to get the two pack rather than the individual soaps. It comes in white and green packaging, with 'simple' written on it. They come as two 125g bars and they don't contain any perfume or colour.
*My opinion of the product*
I have been using this product as a hand soap for about two weeks, I don't use this product on my face as soap dries out my already really dry skin. It is a white creamy bar, just like most soaps on the market and it has simple printed on the front.
I like using this product as a hand soap but I don't usually buy 'hard' soaps, I usually get hand washes, but because of my two new tattoos I bought this product. The tattooist said that simple is the best brand to use on new tattoos, so I wash my wrist tattoos with this soap twice a day and I find that it really cleanses my skin well. It lathers up really well too and it does have a scent to it, it is kind of like sweet baby powder again, which some people may not like but I think it is quite nice.
I also have a small patch of eczema on my hand and using this product it has cleared up quite a lot, I don't know of it is this soap or something else but it is a lot better and the soap does not irritate it at all, it also does not irritate my tattoos.
I have also used it as a body soap and it does work well too, again it lathers up really well, it creates lots of nice smelling bubbles and the scent of the product stays on my skin a while, definitely not all day but a few hours - if I don't put any other products on my skin afterwards.
Although the only downside to this product is that it is a bit drying, like all soaps I have used (except porridge and honey I washed the kids from lush) which is not good for my skin as it is really quite dry any way, so this product does not help. So I don't think I will be using it as a body soap and definitely not as a face soap as it is so dry but as a hand soap and to clean my tattoos it is fantastic.
Also another thing that I like about this product is that it does not 'dissolve' quickly, it lasts for a while with out turning in to mush. All of soaps that I have used have worn away really quickly but this one does not - it lasts for a while and it still works really well.
*Price and availability*
I bought this twin pack from boots and it only cost me £1.52 which is really good for two, especially considering that the individual ones are £1.01 on their own, it is worth it to get the two pack of soaps. They are sold in most larger supermarkets and boots and also amazon but they are quite a bit more expensive on amazon.
*Cheap and widely available
*Suitable for sensitive skin and it does not irritate my eczema
*Cleansing and lathers up really well
*very good as a hand soap and ok as a body soap
*Really good at cleansing and keeping my new tattoos clean
*Dermatologically tested and smells nice
*Lasts for a while
*Quite drying on the body and especially on the face - so I would not use it as a body or face soap, but as a hand soap it is great.
Thank you for reading my review
