Simple Refreshing Facial Wash VS Simple Micellar Facial Gel Wash

Simple Refreshing Facial Wash VS Simple Micellar Facial Gel Wash

Simple Refreshing Facial Wash is one of the cleanser yang memang wajib ada dalam my toilet. The most affordable cleanser and it works for my skin so memang always ada backup. 

I tried the first time here: Simple 3 Step Kit Review tapi tak pernah buat full review.

I've tried a few products from Simple since it's affordable, easy to get and the ingredients are good. Tapi tak banyak yang betul betul best. I only love their cleansers. Tapi tak banyak yang I review kat blog lagi sebab tak sempat haha. But the oil cleanser, micellar water and makeup remover is good.


Refreshing Facial Wash: 
This 100% soap-free face wash removes dirt, oil and impurities, leaving skin feeling clean and revived. Perfect for even the most sensitive skin.

Micellar Facial Gel Wash:
Our Water Boost Gel Wash uses micellar water technology in a light face wash form to help combat dehydrated & dull skin. Suitable for even sensitive skin.


Refreshing Facial Wash: 

Aqua, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Propylene glycol, Sodium chloride, Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose, Panthenol, Disodium EDTA, Hydropropyl Cyclodextrin, Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate, Pantolactone, Phenoxyethanol, Sodium hydroxide, Tocopheryl Acetate

* I did noticed yang ingredients dekat packaging ni lain daripada website Simple. So maybe they've changed the formulation.

The new ingredient list from their website:
Aqua, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Propylene glycol, Hydroxypropyl methyl cellulose, Panthenol, Tocopheryl Acetate, Pantolactone, Sodium hydroxide, Disodium EDTA, Sodium Hydroxymethylglycinate

Micellar Facial Gel Wash:
Aqua, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Propylene Glycol, Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose, Sodium Chloride, Panthenol, Citric Acid, Disodium EDTA, Glycerin, Hydroxypropyl Cyclodextrin, Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate, Pantolactone, Phenoxyethanol, Potassium Chloride,Saccharide Isomerate, Sodium itrate, Sodium Hydroxide, Tocopheryl Acetate.

Both comes in a 150ml tube with similar packaging, just different design. All details are printed clearly on the packaging.

Both have almost similar gel texture. Bila apply dekat kulit, dia tak berbuih sangat and leave a slight flimsy feeling. 

Both has no noticeable scent 

If you wanna read on how to choose a cleanser: SKINCARE 101: HOW TO CHOOSE A FACIAL CLEANSER?

Both tak buat kulit rasa ketat and tegang. But if I were to compare, Micellar Facial Gel Wash rasa lebih hydrated. Both is a low pH cleanser, the pH is around pH5.

There is no irritating ingredient in both of the cleanser, no SLS, no fragrance, no menthol, no alcohol, no essential oils. 

The only problem for me is that sometimes I feel like it doesn't clean my skin enough. Kalau daily use and jenis tak pakai makeup sangat, this is enough. But if I use full makeup during the day lepastu guna oil cleanser, I rasa my skin macam tak bersih sangat lepas guna these cleanser. But this is just my feeling je haha.

I personally think is the most basic cleanser from the drugstore that works for my skin. If you have drier skin type, you might gonna love the Micellar Facial Gel Wash. If you have oilier skin type, you might enjoy Refreshing Facial Wash more. However, check the ingredients first sebab ada jugak yang tak sesuai pakai ni.

Micellar Facial Gel Wash retails for RM23.90 and Refreshing Facial Wash retails for RM20.75.

Would I repurchase? 
Yes of course. I've been purchasing this again and again since two years ago.

That's all, thanks for reading!
