Taking it back to Basics with Simple Micellar Water

I hate getting ready for bed! It is such a process, especially when you have reached your limit for the day and the comfort of your bed is calling your name. It’s at that point where you really regret being overly euthusatic with the eyeliner and mascara that morning. At the end of the day, my skin is tired, stressed, I have most likely been rubbing it, my eyes are sore  and the last thing I need is a product that is going to be harsh, or one that is ineffective. At this point my skin needs some loving.

Cue Simple Micellar Water – The perfect blend of multi-vitamins designed to cleanse the skin while removing what feels like permanent make-up.  The result? Skin is left feeling clean, hydrated and ready for bed.

I have been giving this product a whirl over the last month, just before bed and here is what I found –

1. This product makes life easier. 

No actually it does. It’s super easy to use. You just moisten a pad with the water and and wipe it on your face to remove the dirt. The best part? you don’t even have to rinse it off. Yes you heard correctly!  It is after all water. It also didn’t leave skin feeling sticky or heavy like some cleansing wipes can. I had clean, fresh feeling skin.

2. It does what it says it will. 

It removes make-up  with ease. It is my primary objective at the end of the day,  to get the make-up off and get into bed. Simple Micellar Water did it and did it well. I went to Splore last month and this product saved my butt. I could sleep easy knowing all traces of the day where removed from my pores without actually requiring me to leave my tent and stand in a queue at the bathroom mirror.

3. It’s Convenient.

See points #1 and #2 on this one. You don’t need to wash it off and it does a number of things in a couple of swift movements. Did I mention it is also readily  available and affordable. Yep, I picked mine up from the supermarket.

4. It’s a No crap product. 

I’m off to bed and  the last thing I want to do is put nasties  on my face. Simple Micellar Cleansing Water features no artificial colours or added perfumes.  It is made with Triple purified water and is perfect for my sensitive skin.

Overall, I was impressed, taking into account the cost of this product it blew me out of the water (hehe) .It met my needs and helped me get a good nights sleep knowing my skin was getting some love.

    Because I don’t have anything but secondhand PJ’s. I pass by Peter Alexander stores and dream about wearing those pretty, cosy looking PJ’s to bed – but I don’t have the budget to make that come true, sigh. 🙂

    I’m a full time carer for my terminally ill father so I often have to assist him throughout the night and often ring for help so it would be nice to have some nice pajamas when everybody sees my in mine 🙂 I have also tried this water and found in really convenient too. Great review.

    I have super sensitive skin and it seems most washes tend to dry my skin out. Would love to give this a go to see if it works better!

    Because just like wearing nice lingerie in the day makes you feel confident and sexy wearing gorgeous sleepwear makes you sleep well, dream well and feel like a million bucks when you have to walk around with crazy hair in the middle of the night!

    All of my PJ’s seem to be in a really sorry state at the moment. Like seriously, I can’t bring myself to take any of them to wear when I stay the night at a friends house. Plus I would like to get me some silk PJ’s. Definitely got this Simple Micellar water on my list to buy, it’s the only cruelty free one you can buy in supermarkets!

    I’ve always loved Peter Alexander, but it’s always been out of my budget since I’ve had to always make uni and bills a priority. I would love a chance to win this voucher and sleep in what would feel like heaven to me ❤️

    I live, breathe and cleanse in Simple products. They’re the best on my sensitive skin.
    I love that their range is so wide now too from acne prone skin, to older skin care.

    I dream of owning Peter Alexander PJs, I’ve walked passed the shop so many times and each time I get more heartbroken that I can’t walk home with some soft, warm PJs from there. Oh to be a student!
