When it comes to skincare, I'm definitely someone who sticks with the basics but likes to branch out every now and then to try new products out. I received the Garnier Micellar Water as a sample to test out (full size) and completely fell in love! Not only does this product remove all makeup (even waterproof), it provides my skin with a beautiful, clean, and refreshing feeling. I love using this right before cleansing my skin and have noticed a HUGE difference in the way my skin looks and feels. I always used a cleanser to perform both steps of removing my makeup AND cleansing but once trying this product out, I am a firm believer that this product is a MUST HAVE in my daily skincare routine. I like to use this both morning and night to remove any excess oil and/or remove any makeup I had wore during the day & also love that it does not burn the eye area like other makeup removing products have done in the past. It does take a couple motions (as well as laying the cotton round pad on your eyes for a few seconds) to remove the mascara & eyeliner products but in the end, definitely removes all of the product. Also, the consistency is truly like water. It's very thin and feels absolutely refreshing placed both on the skin and after being removed off. Most makeup removers have an "oil like" consistency that feels heavy and thick but this one products a nice "water" feel as if you are only using water. Overall, I'd say that this is truly a wonderful product and am a buyer for life. In fact, it's definitely become an amazing product staple that I cannot live without. Definitely recommend this product for anyone curious in trying out the new micellar water trend as it's absolutely worth the hype! ...read more

This is my favorite eye makeup remover by far. It takes off even the toughest eye products (i.e benefit they're real mascara, stila stay all day liner). It is a dual-phase product, so you must shake it before applying to a cotton pad, and then sweep across the eye area. For those who do not like any "oil" type feel, you may not like how this feels around the eye area. It isn't oil, but it has a slippery feel when applied to the skin.
It does not have much of a smell at all. Aside from the smell of the actual ingredients themselves.
I am also a contact wearer with sensitive eyes and it is one of the few removers that does not burn or feel irritating.
The one and only downside to this product is its price. Here in Canada it retails for $36 for a 125ml bottle. I personally use up that amount of eye makeup remover in about a month (always use waterproof eye products/brow products), so that definitely makes this quite pricey. However, I DO have to use less of this than other removers, as it does the job quicker.
All in all, a really nice product. I removed one star for the very high price point. ...read more

This was the first Simple product I tried and it turned me into a believer of the entire brand. I like that they are small pads that are designed for the eyes so that they won't be contaminated by any other part of the face, not that that's a huge deal to most people. I'm just weird that way. The pads were moist through the entire pack, without being too saturated at the top or dry at the bottom as happens with other brands. Although their sticky adhesive doesn't stick as well as other brands so it doesn't always stay sealed and have the potential to dry out. That happened with several packs of the facial wipes, which has highly disappointing. Other than that, I like this product a lot. It does not burn or irritate my eyes and one pad will do the job for even the greatest eye make-up challenge. ...read more

This works so well and it is extremely gentle which is why I like it so much. I just put some on a cotton pad and then gently leave it on my eye for about 10 seconds and then it removes most of the eyeliner and mascara. With waterproof mascara I'll leave it on there for another couple of seconds and it will be able to wipe away with maybe some touchups here and there. Using this makeup remover i don't feel worried about using it too long on my eyes since it's so gentle and I don't have any irritation problems.

I do definitely wash my face after using this since it is pretty greasy but also it unveils whatever leftover eye makeup is still on my face and ill go back in and clean it up a little more and rinse my eyes. Like i said it's really gentle so it works well with sensitive skin and to wipe your makeup off more than once without getting redness.

This is my favorite eye makeup remover to use out of the garnier cleansing water and the lancome eye makeup remover. ...read more

I adore these cloths for days I'm not wearing anything but mascara and lip balm. I take them in my tote bag when I go to my sons baseball games and if I get sweaty or just feel I need a quick clean up from all the dirt, these are great, refreshing, and I feel sufficiently clean my face of any mid day debris. I also sometimes use them to remove the bulk of my makeup before I use my nightly cleansing brush routine. Or in the morning after I've woken but don't have time to do my typical cleansing brush routine. I've always felt they did a great job for what I've used them for, but as I don't use them as my main cleaning I find them a bit expensive for the quick wipe downs I do, and cheaper brands do just as good of a job. But I do enjoy how non drying these particular cloths are compared to the others on the other side of the coin. Never been disappointed, but not one of my must haves either though they're great. ...read more
