Review: Simple Exfoliating Facial Wipes

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”.

Simple Exfoliating Wipes Review

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.

    I am so bad at washing my face. I am one of those people that goes to bed with make up on every night and my daughter who is a make up artists yells at me every day. I am not well versed in face clothes, but I’m not a fan of harsh and scratchy so maybe I will pass on this one. Good call!

    I like the Simple Brand of products .. I guess the stiffness ad sound is from the lack of harsh chemicals and preservatives used
