Is This The Best Affordable Facial Wash?

I love finding affordable beauty products that actually work. Having oily and sensitive skin, its very difficult to find suitable face cleansers. During my recent trip to POYA, I found this ‘refreshing facial wash’ from Simple and the labels ‘No Parabens’ and ‘No Artificial Perfume Or Colour’ immediately caught my eye. On top of that, it was ‘buy one get one free’ which made it even harder to resist for a broke university student like myself. I have been using it for about two months and I have one more tube left to go through. Why do I like it so much? Read on to find out.

My Experience

It comes in a simple, light green, see-through tube packaging and you’ll have to press it from the bottom to get the product out. The facial wash has a transparent gel texture which I find perfect for oily skin. However, it doesn’t lather so if you’re someone who loves dousing their face with cleansing foam, this isn’t for you. Despite its gel form, a small amount is enough to cover your entire face. True to its claims, it has no fragrance or color which can aggravate sensitive skin. 

My face gets irritated with the slightest touch and this facial wash has been a Godsend for me. It cleans well and doesn’t aggravate my skin at all. Another selling point of this Simple facial wash is that it doesn’t leave a flimsy residue behind. One tube has lasted me for 2 months and since I got another one for free, I’ll certainly be using it for a long time. However, if you wear makeup this facial cleaner won’t be enough. You’ll have to double cleanse. 


  • Very Affordable
  • Excellent for sensitive skin
  • No fragrance
  • No color
  • No harsh chemicals
  • Will last a long time


  • Might not remove makeup thoroughly

Final Verdict

Honestly, despite the affordable price tag, it works way better than cleansers that are twice its price. If you have sensitive skin and want a gentle but effective facial wash, you can’t go wrong with the Simple Refreshing Facial Wash.
