Review | Simple Micellar Cleansing Water

It’s been a busy week filled with critiques, photo printing, shooting for my project and me exploring places I’ve never been to. Sometimes you just have one of those days where you just don’t want to do anything and right now, I feel like today is one of those days.

But I’ve been wanting to do this review for a long time now, so I do it now! This is will be on a product from Simple, a facial care brand catered to sensitive skin!

This is the Micellar Cleansing Water and it can be found at Ulta Beauty, Walmart and Walgreens for a price between $5.39 – $7.99. It comes in a 6.7 oz bottle for use.


I’ve been wanting to try this product out ever since the craze about micellar water started. I eventually got it at Walgreens and decided to see how well this would work on my oily skin. Plus, it has gotten plenty of positive reviews, so why not?

I’m down to half of the product left in the bottle after several uses and this product works very well! At first I started using cotton balls to apply this micellar water to my face, but it was easy for me to use too much at a time. So I recommend for you to use cotton pads instead of cotton balls for the best results.

There’s not much of a strong fragrance that my nose can pick up and that’s expected since Simple is aimed at those with sensitive skin. It feels like applying a light toner to the face when I use this and there’s no greasy, sticky feel.

In terms of makeup removal, I can’t fully say if it’s effective at removing makeup because apart from occasionally wearing a light layer of tinted moisturizer, I don’t wear much makeup. But it did a pretty god job in removing that from my face, though it required about 3 pads for the task. Without my tinted moisturizer, the micellar water simply removed any excess oil and dirt that accumulated on my face after a long day and that only required two pads for the job.

But there are some drawbacks. It can be very easy to use too much of this and leave your face somewhat oily. In the case of this happening, I recommend splashing your face lightly with some cool water to remove the micellar water. Yes, I know this defeats its purpose, but this method seems to work the best for my oily face and my skin is left clean and smooth.

All in all, I love it and will definitely purchase another bottle when I run out! This is great for someone who doesn’t want to have an extensive face routine after a long day and just wants to gently remove dirt, oil and makeup from the face quickly. I also recommend this for sensitive skin too since it’s very gentle.

As usual, until next time! Time for me to rest now…
