If you’re anything like me, the change of seasons can wreak havoc on your skin. My skin has a tendency to get really dry — and because it’s sensitive… really red. This is caused by dry office air, extreme up + down temperatures outside, not drinking enough water and overdoing it on the coffee or alcohol. It’s around this time that I switch to an ultra gentle skincare routine to hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!
Simple recently introduced its new Micellar Cleansing Water, designed specifically to thoroughly cleanse + instantly hydrate skin. I’ve used Simple’s cleansing wipes for quite some time now (though I’m a little obsessive about fully washing my face every night, they’re amazing for removing makeup in a pinch) but I didn’t realize until recently that Simple is the leading drugstore brand for sensitive skin. All of the brand’s products are formulated without dyes, perfumes, or harsh chemicals… without parabens or any of the other nasty stuff that is in a lot of beauty products… just pure, gentle products that work without causing irritation.
The Micellar Cleansing Water is formulated with triple-purified water (which removes all of those nasty contaminants that irritate skin) + multi-vitamins. You just splash a generous amount (several drops) on a cotton round, and wipe it all over your face to gently remove makeup + impurities. There’s no rinsing required. After cleansing, I’ll follow up with Simple’s replenishing moisturizer. That’s it. Keeping it (truly!) Simple.
Like I mentioned earlier, I’ve been using Simple‘s cleansing wipes for ages. I have strong feelings about cleansing wipes: they are NOT enough to get your face truly clean. But in a pinch they are amazing for removing dirt/oil/makeup/grime… and if you have a face full of makeup, I like to use one prior to using the Micellar Cleansing Water.
Thank you to Simple for partnering on this post.
