New Simple Skincare Hydrating Cleansing Oil

The Simple Skincare Hydrating Cleansing Oil is made with 100% pure grapeseed oil, which is light in texture and infused with skin-loving ingredients that leave all skin types  cleansed, instantly hydrated and soft. The cleansing oil is a gentle, soothing and effective way to remove make-up and to deeply cleanse without stripping or irritating the skin, keeping the natural oils in your skin balanced.

About: Oil attracts oil, so when a few drops of the Simple Hydrating Cleansing Oil are massaged onto dry skin, the formula efficiently attracts grease and make-up and then rinses away effectively once the oil is emulsified with a little water.

Bonus: Dermatologist tested, hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic, ophthalmologist tested and packed with skin-loving ingredients including multi-vitamins.

Where: Available in drug, mass, grocery stores and through eCommerce partners nationwide, $12.97-$16.97 for 125mL.
