Simple Refreshing Facial Wash Gel – Review

Hi everyone!

Today’s review is about Simple Refreshing Facial Wash Gel. This product first appeared in my June Empties in the sample size and I really liked it so I bought the full size version. Keep on reading for a more detailed review.


This product has no scent. Simple. 🙂


The texture is a bit like soft jello, if that makes any sense. It’s also clear, it has no colour or tint or nothing whatsoever.

Since this is a gel it doesn’t really lather up, but it does a wee bit. It does not make big bubbles like other cleansers can do, but when you rub your hands together it does come whitish a bit in your hands from the tiny bubbles that it creates. Some people might compare it to Spectro Jel, which I absolutely HATE! But I actually really like this one.


I currently use this cleanser in my morning shower and what I like about it is that it does not dry out my face at all. Since I wash my face in the shower, it takes a few minutes before I can apply lotion and with this cleanser I don’t feel like I have to rush to moisturize because it does not give me a tight feeling like some other cleansers that I’ve tried.

As for removing makeup, I previously used this cleanser with my Clarisonic at night so it did cleanse well, but I’m not sure it would be strong enough by itself to fully remove makeup so you might have to use a makeup remover beforehand.

Bottom Line

This cleanser is perfect for me to use in the morning. I need more than just water to remove the accumulated oil and sebum from the night and this cleanser does the job well without irritating my face or drying it out. I love it!

Repurchase? Oh yes!

This product retails for about $10-$11 CAD and I believe the brand Simple is available in most drugstores.

Have you tried this cleanser, or any other products from this brand?
