Simple's Moisturizing Facial Wash has been reformulated since our original review of the product, and we're happy to say that this update is an upgrade in our book!

The first version of Moisturizing Facial Wash contained some good ingredients to cleanse normal to dry skin, but it also included fragrant rose geranium oil, which has the potential to aggravate skin (particularly temperamental skin, the skin type which Simple's marketing skews toward).

This latest version eliminates the fragrant oils (in fact, it's fragrance free) and keeps what was good about the original. This new formula features only gentle cleansing agents alongside some skin-soothing ingredients. We found that the gel-like texture was easy to use and effective in removing dirt, oil, and makeup, and that it rinsed cleanly without making skin feel dry or tight.

Bravo to Simple for stepping up this cleanser, which is now among our top recommendations for normal to dry skin, and it's a beauty bargain!

Pros:
  • Gentle cleansing agents effectively remove dirt, oil, and makeup.
  • Rinses cleanly without making skin feel dry.
  • Impressive (and inexpensive) soothing formula.
  • Fragrance free.
Cons:
  • None.
