Review- Simple spotless skincare range, part 1

Hey Girls!

I've never had too many problems with my skin as I have a pretty normal skin type that can be prone to the odd blemish on my T-zone, but that hasn't stopped me from trying a large amount of products that promise to make it that bit better.

I went through one stage of having a ridiculously long routine involving scrubs, masks, toners and lotions (they'll be more on these and the other products I've tried before in future posts), but instead of making my skin blemish free and beautiful it actually made me break out. I decided this was the result of over processing my skin and actually stopped using any products on it apart from facial wipes to take off my make up and moisturiser after showering. However, recently I got sick of getting the odd spot and not doing anything about it, plus I felt I was pampering the rest of me so much and neglecting my face so I went in search of a few new products. Nearly all the products I've used in the past have been from the simple range as I think it's so gentle and perfect for any type of skin, so I was instantly drawn to their new spotless skin range and as completely clear skin is what I want to achieve it sounded perfect. I took advantage of the buy one get one free offer on in tesco and got the triple action face wash, rapid action spot zapper and two packs of the quick fix cleansing wipes,.

I'm going to review the cleansing wipes today and follow up later with reviews of the other two products as my post will be far too long if I talk about all three in one go!

Simple Quick fix spotless skin cleansing wipes
Price-£2.99 from Tesco, but £3.05 from superdrug and £3.85 from boots
Simple's description- 'Effectively removes make-up traces and impurities that can cause spots and blemishes. Gives you visibly clearer skin from day one and contain zinc and chamomile, as well as spot fighting and natural antibacterial ingredients.' 

  • I use a wipe every night to take off my make up and they honestly do seem to live up to the claim of giving you clearer skin straight away.
  • They also live up to their claim that one wipe is strong enough to take off even heavy make up and waterproof mascara.
  • They are defiantly a 'quick fix' easy way to keep your skin clear.
  • They save you money as they combine a spot fighting product and make up remover into one.
  • If you get them from tesco they are a reasonable price for buyers on a budget.
  • They are value for money as you get 25, so one pack will last you almost a month.
  • They leave your skin feeling lovely, cleansed and moisturised.
  • They work for any skin type, including sensitive skin.
  • They do make my eyes sting a little so I've had to start using simple eye make up remover and a cotton pad to take off my eye make up, whereas the regular simple  cleansing wipes were very gentle on my eyes.
Overall I love these cleansing wipes and  would give them 8/10. I will continue to use them as I feel having an easy quick way of keeping my skin clear is worth having to use a separate eye make up remover. 

I'm not going to review the remover properly as that would be going off topic, but basically it is has no cons! It's super cheap at £1.19 for 50ml, lasts for absolutely ages and is super gentle on your eyes, but tough enough to remove heavy and waterproof eye make up. I use it on cotton pads for the majority of my eye make up and on cotton buds to remove that stubborn make up on the lower lashes.

Have you tried these two products? What's your opinion of simple?

  1. Love Simple, the nice clean fragrances make my skin feel so fresh :)
    I've added you to my favourite bloggers list on my blog by the way, thought i'd let you know :D
    You're a natural at it :)

  2. really enjoyed reading this post and looking at your style photos in the previous one :D your blog is coming on in leaps and bounds already! :) I used to use simple products but unfortunately they weren't quite right for my skin, I haven't tried this particular range though! If you're interested in trying another skin range I use boots own skin clear range, I've been using it for a couple of years now and it is by far the best I've ever tried (and also perfect for a student budget as the products are cheap on their own but are also often on offer!)
    Looking forward to your next post :)
    Follow me back? :)
    Take care <3 Holz oxo

    Holziepink- I'm so glad that you're enjoying my blog! I may have to try this boots range and it sounds really good and is probably even better than simple for budget buyers :) I'm following you back now, I thought I was already but clearly messed up clicking follow somehow lol
