This fragrance-free eye gel is packaged in a squeeze tube outfitted with a metal rollerball applicator to dispense the product. The formula isn’t anything to write home about; it’s just a standard blend of water, slip agent, soothing plant extracts, and skin-repairing sodium hyaluronate. Nice, but nothing extraordinary or unique for the eye area. Actually, the only intriguing attribute of this product is the rollerball. The massaging action, not the product that’s dispensed, is what can help reduce morning puffiness (the kind brought on by fluid retention, not undereye bags that result from age-related sagging). For the money, this is an OK option for all skin types, including sensitive skin that needs slight hydration and could benefit from the massaging action of the rollerball.

Brand Overview

Simple At-A-Glance

Launched in the United Kingdom in the 1960s, the general philosophy of the Simple skincare brand is, well… simple, though not necessarily unique. Back the and presently, the brand’s claim to fame is that all its products are designed with sensitive skin in mind (as all skincare products should be), omitting fragrance and other ingredients that can potentially cause reactions.

For the most part, we’re happy to say Simple gets it right. A series of reformulations in 2015 resulted in a nearly across-the-board improvement in its products. Although they remain decidedly no-frills, they are indeed suitable for sensitive skin.

That doesn’t mean there aren’t a few missteps in the bunch (you can learn more about this in our individual reviews), but for the most part Simple is a good, reliable, inexpensive line, particularly for facial cleansers and makeup removers.

Note that if your sensitive skin is accompanied by redness, Simple simply doesn’t go far enough. Minimalist formulas are one thing if you’re operating on the principle that for sensitive skin, fewer ingredients are better; however, to alleviate redness you need proven soothing ingredients present in concentrations that are highly likely to make a visible difference. That’s one area where Simple falters. Maybe the next revamp will correct this deficiency—what’s been done to date has us encouraged, but we wouldn’t go so far as to agree that the team behind Simple are “Sensitive Skin Experts” just yet!
