Beauty: Honest Review on SIMPLISTIC Cleanser Begin (User Experience)

Today I'll be talking about a new EWG safe mild gentle cleanser called the SIMPLISTIC Cleanser Begin. SIMPLISTIC is a Korean indie cosmetic brand that provides products with the highest grade, certified Green Grade organic ingredients by EWG's Skin Deep (a special formulation of natural surfactants). The brand focuses wholly on improvement of skin gradually with steady usage, rather than instant miracles. After all, slow and steady wins the race right? ;)

I received this cleanser from WAKO Beauty about a month ago. I've posted this cleanser on my Instagram before. If you didn't already know, WAKO is a beauty e-retailer located in the historical city of Malacca. They are founded in 2015 from a one-person team to a small family now. The initial goal is to make skincare more affordable and accessible in Malaysia. After being in the business for several years, the WAKO team realises that many from the community do not know much about their skin. The new WAKO mission is now to educate more people about skincare and beauty in order to achieve beautiful skin! It has been a great 2 years or so collaborating with WAKO as they are so nice and professional, especially when you have questions about skincare!

The SIMPLISTIC Cleanser Begin is said to be the most ideal, low acidity cleanser at pH6.0 that is suitable for all skin types, especially sensitive skin. It can be used daily to deep cleanse pores from bacteria and fine dust without causing irritation. It is formulated with 99% natural and plant-based ingredients including Cypress Water - a soothing ingredient that reduces acne growth, organic Aloe Vera Powder which helps to alleviate itchiness, redness, sunburn and dryness while boosting the massage effect, and last but not least, Real Honey (not honey extract!) As we all know, honey has great antibacterial and antiseptic properties to inhibit bacteria growth and provide great moisture and hydration.

The first thing that attracted me to this product is its unique shape. How often do you find skincare bottles that are cube-shaped? Also, love that it comes in a pump form as it is more hygienic and sanitary this way, not to mention convenient! Once pumped, the cleanser dispensed is a light orange colour (thanks to the honey) of thick, gel-like consistency.

To use, wet your face with warm water and add a dollop of cleanser onto your palm. Once wet, the cleanser becomes a fine white foam with some bubbles. Rub your palm together to form up the product first before applying on the face. Massage in circular motions for 60 seconds before rinsing off with lukewarm water.

I was expecting a strong honey scent but in fact it smells more like a combination of flowers and citrus to me for some reason. Nevertheless, it's so soothing that I always inhale the scent before washing my face cos it relaxes me (does that sound weird? haha). The scent does get stronger after the product gets foamed up. 

Wanna know how my experience was with this product? 🙋

Day 1 - There were so much acne on my cheek, this rarely happens as most of the time I only get hormonal acne on my chin. I was quite sad, but decided to try out the cleanser to see if it helps. First thought is the scent was great and it feels gentle on the skin without drying it out.

Day 7 - After a week of use, I found that the acne marks on my cheek has faded. But I did notice that if you have any open scars (I have a bad habit of peeling or squeezing those acne with pus 😳), there is a minty feeling and it will sting a little, but it isn't unbearable.

Day 14 - This was when my skin was the brightest! Pores also feel less congested after 2 weeks of use.

Day 21 - Around this time my hormonal acne started coming back as I was on my period, hence there was more acne on my chin. But see the acne scar on my left cheek? It has reduced significantly and is less red! 

After about a month of use, I find that the product is really great for daily use even though it has deep cleansing properties. It feels so gentle on the skin and reinvigorates the senses with its scent. I have had breakouts for months now due to wearing mask (#maskne) all the time. Though I think it has not helped to reduce my acne growth that significantly (as you can see, new ones keep popping out zzz), it sure has helped to keep my skin moisturised and my pores feel less clogged now. Not to mention, the bottle is so aesthetic that its a perfect addition to any bathroom #shelfie!
