Simple Skin Care Cleansing Facial Wipes

I'm not normally a facial wipes kind of girl, I like a good deep clean, but everyone gets lazy every once in a while! I think this is where facial wipes fit it to my skincare routine, those nights where you know you should take your makeup off, but you're just too tired to put in a real effort.


Simple Skin Care is a brand that is new to Canada, and has had huge success in the UK. The philosophy behind the Simple brand is that there are no harsh or irritating ingredients. However, I was quite surprised to find that there are indeed parabens in the formula of some of the products. There are two parabens in the Cleansing Facial Wipes. This does bother me, just because of the marketing of the brand as simple and free of irritants.


If you don't care about parabens, then I really think that these wipes are a great choice! I took these on my trip to Florida, and used them nightly to remove my eye makeup. These wipes are very gentle, yet they remove all of my makeup, even mascara. My skin needs something more for everyday use, so I wouldn't be able to use these daily. If your skin is very low maintenance, they you might be able to use these daily. A pack comes with 25 wipes that are 18x19cm in size. I find the size to be perfect, enough room to clean your entire face without having to repeat areas.


Overall, I think having a pack of these on hand for those lazy nights. Simple also makes Exfoliating Facial Wipes, which I think would be great for my skin, and I can't wait to try them out! I've seen the Simple line at Shopper's and Walmart and they do go on sale.

Have you tried any of the Simple range? What facial wipes do you recommend?

Disclosure: These were sent to me for my honest review.

  1. I love Soap and Glory's facial wipes - not sure if they're available in Canada though.

    I've used a simple eye make-up remover for and it made my eyes sting loads! Apparently kind to eyes - not for me haha :(

    1. I've seen the Soap & Glory ones in Shopper's Drug Mart the other day! I've heard amazing things about them, I must try them out :)

      Oh no! That's too bad :( I'm using the eye makeup remover from Dior (Got a free sample from Sephora!) and I really like it, it almost applies like a dry oil, really unique!

  2. I use these every night, and I love them! I always make sure I wash my face after though, as I hate the scent :D x

  3. I really like these but I actually use them as part of my make-up removing routine along with eye make-up remover and a cream cleanser as like you, most of the time I feel like in need a good old cleanse, but these are really nice and gentle. Great review x :-)

  4. As much as I loved these wipes, I too was a bit surprised when I saw that most of the products in the Simple line have parabens in them. I just felt a little misled by the label describing all the "bad" things it didn't have when paraben-free products are what a lot of people are looking for now.

    1. I agree, I felt a bit lied to! Hopefully they can reformulate products without parabens!

  5. I have now bought two of these simple facial wipe packages! I quite like them. I also like TBS tea tree cleansing wipes. I only use them when I'm travelling or staying the night at my BF's house, because they're pricey compared to face wash, but they're very convenient and work well.

    1. I agree, I use these at my boyfriends, on holiday, or when I'm just especially lazy! I haven't tried the TBS cleansing wipes, but I've used other items from the tea tree line and really liked them :)

  6. Hi OPI Addict! I've been using the entire Simple line of products for about two months now, and am totally addicted! I have extremely sensitive skin, and am so happy to have finally found a product that makes my face happy! :) Sometimes I will use the wipe on my face at night, then just rinse out the wipe and squeeze, and wipe my face again.... super squeaky clean. Then I use the eye balm (ooooh) and the night cream. Just love the whole line!

    1. Thanks for letting me know! I'm also loving the eye balm and night cream :) The eye roller is also amazing!

  7. I received these in my Target Style Beauty Bag and fell in love with them. I was shocked to hear about the parabens, as well, but love them all the same. I think that says a lot about the product when you're willing to overlook the parabens and still use them.
