The Ordinary | Squalane Cleanser

Squalane Based Face Cleanser | 50ml

  • An ultra-gentle daily moisturising cleanser that mimics skin esters for a more soothing clean.

  • A gentle cleansing product formulated to target makeup removal whilst leaving the skin feeling smooth and moisturized. The formula incorporates Squalane, alongside other lipophilic esters that are gentle, moisturizing, efficient in dissolving makeup and facial impurities and increasing the spreadability of the product. When rubbed between your palms for approximately 10-30 seconds, the product undergoes an important textural change from a balm-like consistency to a clear oil-like consistency. This allows the emulsifying sucrose esters in the formula to trap and blend the dissolved makeup and facial impurities with water for rinsing. Being non-comedogenic and soap-free, this formula is designed to be gentle enough for daily use, without over-drying the skin, making it suitable for all skin types.

    Good cleanser

    Literally melts makeup and sebum leaving a clearer and hydrated skin. I have combination skin so I always struggled to find a cleanser that actually *cleanses* without drying my cheeks - this one does its job, just follow the instructions. I agree with those who complained about the small size though!

    The Ordinary Squalane Cleanser is of a thick and creamy consistency. Its texture makes it easy to apply and spread over the face without making a mess or losing any product. I find that I can easily remove a full face of makeup in one go and it doesn't take much to do so. After using this Cleanser for over a month I will say that my face has been free of breakouts and looks good. I do reccomend this for people who prefer a cream over liquid though I will be returning to a liquid oil cleanser.

    I have sensitive oily skin

    It's really good! Especially for this price. Didn't break me out at all, which surprised me. I find it a first alright stage cleanser. It's good. It doesn't smell, it kind of break out into oil rather slowly, but other than that, it's really a good price-quality ratio.
