The Ordinary Squalane Cleanser

£5.50 - £13.90

Wash away every trace of the day while retaining your skin’s moisture with The Ordinary Squalane Cleanser, a gentle and moisturising rinse-off formula, suitable for all skin types that will effectively remove makeup and other impurities.

Ideal for even the most sensitive of skin, this moisturising cleanser by The Ordinary is enriched with Squalane (a hydrator found naturally in the skin). Loved for its highly-effective moisturising capabilities, and gentle lipophilic esters that will help to unclog pores. With every use, the Squalane Cleanser will effectively dissolve away makeup and facial impurities to leave the skin fresh, cleansed and soft as can be.

A truly innovative product, upon application it’s balm-like texture will effortlessly spread across the face, transforming into an oil when massaged into the skin that will allow emulsifying sucrose esters to trap dirt and debris and then wash them away, ensuring optimum formula efficacy and happy, healthy and refreshed skin.

Why We Love It

Unlike other cleansers, the Squalane Cleanser by The Ordinary is particularly special because it will remove all traces of makeup without stripping your skin of its natural moisture levels. The result? Healthy, refreshed and soft skin - so you can say goodbye to that horrible ‘tight’ feeling that can often come along after using a cleanser (this caring formula will maintain your skin’s hydration levels) all the while remaining very kind-to-skin thanks to its soap-free formula. If you suffer from dry skin, or you simply want a cleanser that isn’t going to cause a reaction, we have a feeling that this one by The Ordinary might become a staple!

How To Use It

Dispense into your hands and rub together to warm the product until it transforms into an oil-texture. Massage well onto your dry face and then rinse thoroughly with warm water.

The Ordinary Squalane Cleanser is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product This is a wonderful product that is easily as good as competitors at four times the cost. It is silky and soft and leaves skin really clean without stripping it. You squeeze it out as an balm, it turns into an oil on the skin and then it emulsifies into a milk on contact with water. I can't imagine it wouldn't suit any skin type, but for reference I have very dry skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this cleanser! Fantastic cleanser at an excellent price, thoroughly cleans skin without stripping it or making it feel oily. I usually spend much more on cleansers, but won't be needing to any longer

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feels so nice on my skin! Very effective! I absolutely love the feel of this cleanser on my skin. Beautifully soft application and it really does pull up dirt/makeup like no other cleanser I've used. Over 2 weeks of use now and my skin is looking better everyday. I have a much even skin tone and a lovely glow. I use this alongside the Glycolic Acid Toner and the Niacinamide with Zinc. These products have really helped clear my cystic acne pigmentation and scars well. Also not a single spot in over 2 weeks! I couldn't ask for much more really, especially for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This cleanser will cleanse your life I love this cleanser so much, it is smooth, fragrance free and does what is says on the tin! For the price, this cleanser does miracles. Since I have been using the 60 second cleansing method, I have seen even greater improvements. It gets rid of all makeup and dirt and is a great place to start if you want a simple, easy and effective skin routine. I would use twice a day for best results and the tube lasts for ages!
