I have a few good beauty habits, and a few no-so-good ones. I am the very proud owner of a Clarisonic, but I don’t use it twice a day. I occasionally sleep with my contacts in, I don’t always moisturize at night and use make-up way past it’s expiration. Don’t judge me, rocks and stone houses and all, something tells me the members of we heart this practice a few beauty don’ts as well. And thanks to the good folks at Simple Skin Care, we have a new weapon in our fight against one of the worst sins of all – falling asleep without a thorough washing.
This is one beauty routine where I earn high marks. I’m diligent at removing any make-up every night regardless of my mental or physical state. I learned the hard way that if I don’t my skin will reward me by breaking out. I discovered the wonders of make-up removing wipes a few years ago and I’ve been addicted to them ever since. I pluck out a wipe and remove my make-up, my skin feels clean and smooth prior to going to sleep and I don’t feel guilty about being lazy in the AM. And of course, the biggest bonus, I don’t have gigantic pimples or yucky blackheads – well at least not more then normal.
When I received the nice little trial packet of Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes I was tickled pink. The people behind Simple are known as the sensitive skin specialists and they have created 100% oil and alcohol free make-up removing (including waterproof mascara) wipes packaged in a handy travel size pouch (5 wipes per pouch). These wipes contain no perfume, no dyes and are dermatologically approved.
I’m giving these cleansing cloths bonus points for the thickness of the wipes and the slightly textured surface, which allows for complete removal of foundation, face powder – even mascara with a bit of time and gentle rubbing.
In business for almost 50 years, this company started off simple (hee) with a few pharmacist-developed offerings, including color-free soap, which was sought after by those with for sensitive skin. As the product line increased, the philosophy remained and Simple never uses harsh chemicals, colors or perfumes in its skin care. They continue to work with the purest possible ingredients to ensure quality products, even for those with most sensitive skin. Top that all off with accessible prices and it’s simple to maintain your daily beauty routines with Simple Skin Care!
One caveat? This European cult favorite (the cleansing cloths are bloody popular in England) may be hard to find in the U.S. Lucky NYC readers, however can check out the line at their local Duane Reade Drugstore.
Testers – are you ready to fly overseas (or take Manhattan) to get your hands on more Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes?
