Simple Refreshing Face Wash Gel

RATING (out of 5 stars): 4.5 stars

COST: $6.99 for 5 ounces

THE SKINNY: Don't be fooled by the name. This gel cleanser is simple in its ingredients list. But not in its washing power.

The Simple line of skincare is from the United Kingdom. It's been around since 1960 but only recently began selling its products in the U.S.

The Refreshing Face Wash Gel is made without soap, dyes or perfumes. It's a clear gel that is nearly odorless except for a slight scent that reminds me of cucumbers.

It gets quite foamy, so a little dollop of gel goes a long way.

It washes away makeup and mascara with ease, leaving my face feeling clean and, believe it or not, refreshed. It also doesn't irritate my eyes.

I am quite impressed and would love to try other products from the line.

KEEP OR TOSS: Keep. I would consider replacing my normal face soap -- Philosophy's Purity -- with this less-expensive option.
