Review: Simple - Cleansing Facial Wipes

Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes ($5.99) seemed promising in the package. They claim to be gentle, effective, 100% alcohol and oil free and PH balanced. I gave 'em a whirl. They're not so effective on makeup. As far as I can tell, they take off face makeup ok, but did it remove my waterproof L'oreal Voluminous Mascara? No. Not even close. And I feel like there is a little bit of a sticky residue left after you use them. At $5.99 it comes out to 23 cents per wipe, and that doesn't seem like much of a bargain. For now, I let my husband use them and otherwise save them to clean my dirty brushes. (Why he wants to, I don't know. Well, it's probably because I leave my makeup all over the place and he has ADD so he gets easily distracted. Once he put mascara on his beard, just for the hell of it!) Simple is a UK based brand and was previously hard to find in the US but you can find some at Duane Reed if you know where one of those is.

Note: I received this product free of charge, for review. It didn't alter my opinion in any way.

I have never heard of the brand before, but would be really interested to try.
