Product Review: Simple Regeneration Facial Wash

simple face wash
Well, here is another product I picked up from my previous European trip. It's another product I picked up from London. I don't know what it is, but I have been giving pretty good reviews to a lot of the inexpensive products that I've been finding there! (Click here to read about Clarity by Superdrug, one of my favorite products). I've included this product review because a lot of readers were asking me to review some fragrance-free products, so here we go . . .

I've been using this product, Regeneration, by the Simple skincare company of the U.K. I've pretty much used it as an "everyday, just reach and wash" product . . . hey, I barely have time for any more than just that since I either come home exhausted from work or scramble to leave for the hospital just before the crack of dawn :-) Overall, it is just what it is, a no frills wash.

Honestly, I doubt there's much special about this product as far as any miraculous claims, but you all know that I do love the fact that there's absolutely no fragrance in this product. As far as the active ingredients in this product, well, I'll talk about that below, but here's the ingredient listing:

Water, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Decy Glucoside, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Butylene Glycol, Fomes Officinalis Extract (Trunk Rot Mushroom), Sodium Chloride, Propylene, Glycol, PEG-55, Propylene Glycol Oleate, PEG-7 Glyceryl Cocoate, Panthenol, Glycol Distearate, Methyparaben, Sodium Hydroxymethylglycinate, Camellia Sinensis Extract (Green Tea), Polyquarternuim-39, Tocopheryl Acetate, Cocamide MEA, Laureth-10, Disodium EDTA, Dipropylene Glycol, Citric Acid, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Phenoxyethanol, Benzoic Acid, Glycerin, Avena Sativa Kernel Extract (Oat Kernel), Anthemis Nobilis Oil (Camomile), Sodium Benzoate, Chlorphenesin, Potassium Sorbate, Sorbic Acid, Propylparaben.

As far as the natural ingredients in red, they certainly do have proven helpful effects. The mushroom extract, however, is the only one that is likely in any significant amount in this product. Notice that the others are all listed after the start of the preservatives in the listing (in purple). Likely that means that they make up less than 1% of the product.

A good thing about this product is the price, you can find this product for less than 5 Pounds or 8 USD or so. So, overall, decent product, good price, and overall a favorable review.

Thanks for the honest review...we look for miracles every day.That we would wash our face and find it different...which does not happen and when it clashes with the imagination we fret.

I'm very glad to see your blog back. I used to really enjoy the read. With this cleanser ... What benefits do mushrooms have for skin! You're so right about the amounts of the extracts being less than the preservative.

With skin care look at the first 8-10 ingredients - THAT'S what you're putting onto your skin. Everyhing else is in miniscule amounts. nothing in skin care ever caused cancer - but what food does it do yoir skin .
In this case, what food does: Water, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Decy Glucoside, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Butylene Glycol (SPEAKING OF ANTIFREEZE!) Fomes Officinalis Extract (Trunk Rot Mushroom), Sodium Chloride, Propylene, Glycol, PEG-55, Propylene...etc do for your skin! No nutrients that it can use to improve. this priduct would perhaps be drying and/or irritating, to some; at the very least... a lot of nothing. When you are putting 'nothing' in your skin you can't help but age it.
End rant!
