Travel & Lifestyle | It’s time to be #KindToSkin with Simple Skincare’s Cleansing Micellar Water

Whether I choose to accept it or not, I am getting older. As with the wisdom of aging, I have come to realize that my beauty regiment has to evolve with me in order to keep up with the busy life I live. As a man, there have been many times when I am faced with “Men’s Line” products that simply don’t take into account the fact that men want to feel good about their skin too. It’s not all musky scents and aftershaves anymore. Men are becoming savvy beauty experts looking for products that help to keep them looking refreshed and feeling beautiful. It’s why I am so excited to tell both the female AND male fans of about Simple Skincare‘s Cleansing Micellar Water and how adding it to your daily routine can help cleanse, hydrate and revitalize that beautiful skin of yours.

For those of you who haven’t had the pleasure of being introduced to Simple ®, allow me to give you a bit of background on the company and what they are all about. Just before we get into it, remember that not all products are ‘one skin fits all’, you will need to have a consultation with London dermatologists or dermatologists where you are based, to make sure you are doing the ultimate best you can for your skin as you age. In the same way, not all cosmetic products suit all skin types. Often, makeup products contain harmful chemicals that can harm your skin over time. You can switch to chemical-free makeup products if you face any irritation on your skin. You can, for instance, choose mineral makeup , since it contains ingredients that can aid in healing, soothing, and protecting skin that is sensitive or acne-prone. Checking out mineral makeup benefits can help you know what to trust with your skin.

“Simple ® was born in the UK in the 1960s and was the first UK skincare brand to formulate a cleansing product that contained no color and no perfume; designed to care for even the most sensitive skin. The Simple ® soap was even recommended by doctors for those prone to skin irritation. Since launching in 1960, we have stayed true to our philosophy.”


To be honest with you, I have the opportunity to do a lot more research on products such as this one prior to trying them out simply based on the role I have at It’s my job to be educated, experience and bring it to you all in a way that makes sense. And sometimes, let’s be honest, the beauty industry just doesn’t make sense.

I think that using the internet to educate myself in the beauty world is the best way to see what a brand is all about before I invest in their products. The Simple website is one that genuinely conveys how much the company wants to help educate you and ensure that your personal needs take priority above all else, including being just about the products. They even say so!

“We believe that great skincare is about more than just products. Now that’s something many skincare brands may not admit on their website. Our approach to skincare works from the inside and the outside. That’s why we created the Simple ® Advisory Board : A team of experts who can help you get to know you skin from the inside and out. … So that’s what we’re all about: showing your skin the kindness it deserves. The world is tough enough already. Isn’t it time to be kind?”

I feel as though the tools available such as The City Skin & Skincare Questions Answered sections are both valuable tools to help us understand what can at times be a confusing industry.


Not to mention the fact that as someone who has used the Cleansing Micellar Water, I am left really pleased with the results of a simple addition to my daily routine that leaves my skin feeling a hundred times better. Ladies, it is a great way to remove your makeup at the end of the day without harmful products that might damage and leaves your skin feeling refreshed. Gentlemen, I prefer to use it right after I shave in the morning for a great way to clean my pores and avoid razor burn as someone with sensitive skin myself. I use it once again at night when we get home to help my skin recover from the harsh conditions of living in the city of Toronto. The versatility of the product and it’s entire #KindToSkin perspective really have me trusting that the Simple products available in the Canadian market are here to help me.

“All Simple ® products have no dyes, artificial perfumes or harsh chemicals that can upset skin and contain skin-loving ingredients and added vitamins for natural, healthy-looking skin. Simple ® products are hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic and pH balanced.”

Simple ® says… Beauty can come from goodness. And I couldn’t agree more.

“We don’t believe in strange ingredients, confusing claims, unnecessary packaging or complicated routines. We don’t’ want to overcomplicate things – we believe good skincare should fit around you. After all, there’s more to life than the bathroom mirror.” Just don’t tell Julio, because we all know how much he loves his #FASHIONIGHTS bathroom selfies!

Available via online stores you can find on the Simple website or at major retailers in Canada, Cleansing Micellar Water is the perfect way to change the way you think about beauty for the better. Man or woman, young or old, I can assure you that this one simple step can change the way you look at beauty products forever.
