The Ordinary Squalane Cleanser

$11.26 - $20.21

Wash away the day with The Ordinary Squalane Cleanser, a gentle but highly effective makeup remover that cleanses the skin of makeup and impurities, whilst leaving it soft, smooth and hydrated.

The Ordinary Squalane Cleanser is enriched with plant-based squalane, a natural hydrator. Squalane protects against dehydration and fights off skin-damaging free radicals which cause premature ageing, meaning your skin is not only cleansed from impurities but also protected from them.

Our skin readily receives squalane, meaning it penetrates into the pores for a deep yet gentle cleanse, leaving your skin smooth, clean, and moisturised. As soon as you apply the oil-like texture will allow emulsifying sucrose esters to trap makeup and impurities for a clean, fresh-face feeling.

Why We Love It

The Squalane Cleanser offers effective makeup removal with superior hydration, and is formulated for everyday use. Its non-comedogenic and soap-free formula removes makeup without drying out the skin or stripping it of its natural moisture levels - it’s a win, win!

How To Use It

Dispense the product into your hands, and then rub together to warm the cream for 10-30 seconds. The product transforms from a white balm to a clear oil-like consistency. Massage well onto a dry face, before being rinsed off with warm water.

Works Well With

Cleansed and makeup-free skin is often the first step in many peoples’ skin care regimes, so why not follow up with any of The Ordinary’s Hydrators or Oils? So, you keep your skin nourished, hydrated and cleansed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Its worth a try Its best to have warm hands before you attempt using this. If I use it when my hands are cold, it takes ages for it to get to the oily stage before applying by which time my hands are aching. Once its the right consistency though, it does feel nice on the skin but I suffer from flushing, problematic skin, so I wouldn't use this on its own. I would cleanse again with something else so as not to leave any residue which would only result in redness for me. Its a nice product though, and certainly worth a try.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very oily, no hidration This product feels heavy and oily, I feel the description is totally wrong because it feels like Im rubbing butter to my face. It doesnt come off easily., Really disappointed. If you want an oily product - gi ahead. But if its moisture you are after, I would stay away. Very sad as I was looking forward to it.
