Simple Purifying Facial Wash Review : For Oily, Blemish Prone Skin

Simple Skincare is an extremely affordable brand which makes amazing skincare products suitable for even sensitive skin types.

I have tried many products from this brand. Their moisturising face wash and simple detox ultra light hydrating lotion are some of my favourites which I repurchase again and again.

In today's post I am sharing my experience with Simple Purifying Face Wash.

Coming to the product details-

What does the product say ?

Simple daily skin detox purifying facial wash is specifically designed for oily blemish prone skin. With the goodness of thyme, zinc and witch hazel it helps in reducing oil and shine, promoting a clear skin without drying it out.

Ingredients- (from the website)

Aqua, Hamamelis Virginiana Leaf Water, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Glycerin, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, PEG-7 Glyceryl Cocoate, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Benzophenone-4, Citric Acid, Hydrated Silica, Hydroxypropyl Cyclodextrin, Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate, Niacinamide, Panthenol, Pantolactone, Phenoxyethanol, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Benzoate, Sodium Chloride, Sodium Hydroxide, Thymus Vulgaris Flower/Leaf Extract, Xanthan Gum, Zinc PCA.

Quantity- 150 ml

Price- 375 INR

Benefits of key ingredients-

  • Thyme- this ingredient has antifungal and antimicrobial effects. It is very helpful for oily acne prone skin. Thyme helps in cleansing the skin and inhibits bacterial growth.

  • Glycerine- a potent humectant which helps in moisturising the skin.

  • Zinc- it helps in reducing inflammation on the skin. Zinc also promotes healing of rashes, redness and has antimicrobial properties.

  • Witch hazel- promotes clearing of pores, reduces inflammation, has antimicrobial properties and controls excess sebum production.

  • Niacinamide- evens out the skin tone, reduces dullness and blemishes on the skin.

  • Panthenol- provides soothing and calming effects to the skin.


The product comes in a beautiful white tube with a flip top.

Texture and consistency-

It has a thick gel like consistency and some gritty beads along with it.

How to use it?

Moisten your face. Take a pea size amount of the face wash. Add some water to it. Work up a gentle lather and apply it in circular motion on your face. Then wash it off with lukewarm or cold water.

My experience with the product-

As I've stated earlier that I've already used some products from this brand and totally loved them. I was pretty excited to use this face wash too. The ingredient list is absolutely perfect and it is free from artificial fragrance too.

The First time I used this face wash I was surprised to feel the gritty texture of it. Actually I was not expecting any granules in this face wash.

I tried to lather it using water but it didn't lather much. After the application of this product on my face, frankly speaking I didn't like the feel on my skin. The face wash was not over drying but something was off about it which I didn't really like.

I have used the ultra light hydrating lotion from this range and I totally love it and recommend it for acne prone skin but this face wash was a bit of a disappointment for me as I've tried much better face washes available at this range to clear out my skin.


  • Good ingredient list.

  • Fragrance free.

  • Cruelty free.

  • Contains zinc and witch hazel for oily acne prone skin type.

  • Makes the skin oil and shine free without over drying it.

  • No alcohol.

  • No mineral oils.

  • No artificial color.

  • Easily available.

  • Travel friendly.


  • Even after so many good things about this face wash I just didn't like its feel on my skin.

Will I repurchase it?

No ! There are many other face washes from this brand that I like better.

Hope you found this post helpful.

Take care.

Tranexamic acid is a very popular ingredient used in the skincare industry for treating stubborn post inflammatory hyper-pigmentation and melasma. It is a derivative of amino acid lysine which helps in lightening the dark spots and reducing the activity of tyrosinase enzyme which causes production of melanin in the skin. Once the production of melanin is reduced it results in treatment of the hyperpigmentation on the skin. Tranexamic acid also has anti-inflammatory properties which helps in reducing redness and swelling.  In today's post I am reviewing the newly launched Tranexamic acid 3% and HPA serum from the Indian Brand "Minimalist".
