I have a stock of facial wipes at all times. They are great for a first step in removing makeup or as a one-step cleanser if I’m extremely tired at night. I have a couple of long-time favorites but I like to try new things (obviously). Recently, I gave the Simple Exfoliating Facial Wipes a try. They boast a “2-in-1 cleansing & exfoliating with 100% clean, no residue”.
First off, they are quite large as you can see here (7 7.9 inches according to the package). Right away I noticed the textured surface and that they are quite stiff. On first use, I liked the cleansing abilities and felt that the texture helped with cleansing and light exfoliating. But with each use after that I just could not get over how stiff these are! I can actually “hear” the wipe rubbing on my face when I use them. It produces a scratchy sound against my skin as well as having a scratchy feel. Maybe it’s just me and my overactive sensitivities to sound and texture…but I have to say I did not enjoy these wipes.
I can’t argue that they are good at cleansing and don’t leave a residue. However, I could not get over the stiff and scratchy feel (and sound) of the Simple Exfoliating Facial Wipes. I now keep these in my purse just for wiping off my hands after applying sunscreen. Very handy! A Simple product that I do currently love: Simple Eye Makeup Remover Pads.
