[unpaid/sample] I was recently sent the new Simple Replenishing Cream Cleanser and I’m really impressed with it. I can see that dry skin types would get a benefit from it – there’s none of the soreness or tightness that can follow from wash-off creams.
It’s a cream/micellar hybrid that’s soap free – easy as anything to use: just add a ten pence piece sized amount to your (damp) skin, work around and rinse off. I generally am not up for ‘splashing’ off – it invariably messes with my hair and I just don’t like the feel of water on my face so I used a damp cloth and it was perfect. The claims are on the bottle – 11% ceramide boosters and hyaluronic acid to lock in hydration and support skin health. However, it’s not completely clear what 11% ceramide boosters actually are – are they saying that it’s 11% ceramides in content or are they saying it contains 11% ingredients that will boost your own ceramides? It’s all in the detail and even on the Simple website, it’s not completely clear.
I think it’s pro-vitamin B5 and bisabolol that’s doing the work here on this fragrance free cleanser but it’s a good one if not entirely clear why! I liked it – it removed all my make up (mascara needed extra work) and left my skin feeling really soft and well cleansed. It’s all sorts of prices but the best value I’ve found is at Superdrug where it’s on offer for £5.32 – it’s £8 at Boots. It’s a good way to reduce beauty spend a bit – I am seeing so much expensive skin care just now and the Simple Replenishing Cream Cleanser does the job perfectly well.
