Simple Oil Balancing Cleansing Wipes

Date Wed, November 1 2017

I don’t wash my makeup off as much as I should. It’s such a hassle if I’m not in the shower, so I keep wipes on hand for the moments when I remember to remove makeup. I don’t always use them but like to have them on hand.

In my experience, some cleansing wipes can sting around the eyes, so I was looking to switch brands when I bought new ones. I opted for Simple Oil Balancing Cleansing Wipes because they were on sale and because oil has been such an issue for me these past months.

According to the description, they’re designed to help you battle shine from oil as well as cleanse your face gently. The latter is certainly true, and I had no sensitivity, even around my eyes. These wipes have no alcohol, which is actually in a lot of makeup removing products.

I felt clean, and my makeup was gone, too. So they’re at least on par with other wipes I’ve used. There was no residue, and my skin felt super soft afterward.

I don’t know if other wipes usually have oil, but these don’t leave me feeling oily. The ingredients list includes Zinc PCA, which is supposed to moisturize and help to control how much sebum your skin makes. Witch hazel can also help tone pores, which become larger when your skin produces more oil. I’ve definitely seen this happen as oil production has increased. However, the effect doesn’t necessarily extend through the night when I use them at the end of the day. Perhaps the effect will increase as I keep using the wipes.

Simple Oil Balancing Cleansing Wipes have a generic cosmetic scent. It’s not strong. In fact, it reminds me a bit of my foundation, which I don’t mind. Simple adds no colors or scents to the products. The wipes are made with triple-purified water, however.

Although Simple advertises these wipes as convenient, the packaging is the default for other wipes. If you don’t close them up tightly, they might dry out. But you can keep a pack in your bag (they’re available in a small 7 pack, too).

For a pack of 25 wipes, you’ll pay under $5 from Amazon and similar retailers. If yo use the wipes a lot, I would consider buying a 4-pack for under $22. This makes them about the most cost-effective wipes on the market. That makes Simple Oil Balancing Cleansing Wipes worth checking out.
