Simple | Water Boost Micellar Gel Wash | Review

.

In A Few Words
A gentle cleanser suitable for normal and sensitive skin that contains no harsh chemicals, artificial colors or perfume.

The new Simple Water Boost Micellar Facial Gel Wash, a new generation face wash with Micellar cleansing bubbles, infused with skin-essential minerals and plant extract, this formula delivers instant hydration AND gentle yet effective cleansing – perfect for even sensitive skin. The cleansing gel comes in a 5oz plastic tube and I bought mine for $6.00 on Amazon.

I think this a great buy from the drugstore! It’s gentle on the skin (soap free and SLS free) and leaves the skin feeling clean, but tight stripped. This cleanser is not hydrating or moisturizing at all, so might want pass if you have dry skin. It’s unscented, simple, and very utilitarian cleanser so while it does the job, it’s not enjoyable to use (but for I wasn’t expecting it to be). The Micellar Gel does a good job removing face makeup but I wouldn’t use it for eye makeup and I normally just second cleanse or morning cleanse. While washing your face, it stays a very thick gel consistency so I use a cloth to wash it off because it is difficult to rinse off with water.

This cleanser is a great basic, budget buy for normal to oily skin types.

Currently Loving | Cleansers

A rundown of the cleansers I am currently grabbing for ALL the time. My skin is normal / dehydrated and I get hormonal acne. I look for cleansers that don’t strip the skin of its natural oils, has a low pH, is free of sodium laurel sulfate (SLS), is not abrasive/physically exfoliating, and fit in my budget!
