The Ordinary 100% Plant-Derived Squalane is a lightweight solution to support healthy hydration. Squalane is a saturated and stable hydrocarbon that is found naturally in the skin. It has very high emollience, is an exceptional hydrator and can prevent ongoing loss of hydration that impairs dermal suppleness. Squalane is non-comedogenic and is suitable for use on all skin types. It can also be applied to hair to increase heat protection, add shine and reduce breakage potential.
Directions: Apply a few drops daily or as needed to entire face, ideally after water-based treatments.
Ingredients: 100% pure plant-derived Squalane that is ECOCERT approved and is a USDA Certified Bio-based Product.

I want to love this because of the price and what this brand is doing. Minimalist packaging and natural ingredients at a good price allow better-for-you products to become more accessible and are part of a shift towards more natural beauty options becoming not only available, but popular.
With that being said, this product is not my favourite! I'm not the best when it comes to beauty 'regimens' and I feel like for this product to work on my skin, I might have to layer it better or with other, different products? Not sure.
It's a good product because it's quite hydrating, but too much for my combination skin. I'll use this to completion, but I won't order it again and opt for something that works better as a standalone product. I would recommend that it's worth a try, because the price is great and it could be a great option for you. I thought it would work well for me, but I find that my skin gets very greasy to the touch after using it. Doesn't clog my pores or anything, though!

This stuff is lovely on the skin and does not clog pores! Truly great for all skin types! I am an oily skin gal and find this may be a bit too hydrating on my face for the day given the other products I load on top (primers, foundations, SPF etc) but is wonderful to use at night. I wake up with hydrated and calm skin. Great start to the day. The price is amazing and a the very smallest amount goes a long way. So much in fact that I actually use this on my body as well (day and night) and have hardly made a dent in the bottle. I do also use it on the ends of my hair from time to time (use very sparing for this tho as it can get a bit greasy looking on the hair...but oh so soft). I think this product will be a staple kept in my bag for multi-purposes (body, face, hair cuticles etc)... From someone that uses oils regularly(rosehip, sweet almond, argan, jojoba etc) I find that I tend to always go for this one over the others as it works well for everything ...Highly recommend! :)

Great moisturizer, perfect for my dry, eczema-prone skin. My skin looks so hydrated (without looking oily) and it doesn't break me out like most moisturizing products have done. It has actually helped clear up my breakouts (which were from overly dry skin). Also love that it is plant-derived and cruelty-free!

Amazing hydration - you can use this on your whole face, lips included, or mix in with your makeup if you have dry skin. Great for facial massage and does not oxidize (oxidization = age your skin). Feels oily for a few moments after application but give it five minutes and all you are left with is a perfect dewy glow.

This is great. Moisturizing without being heavy. I normally don’t like to use oils on my face as I find it either too oily or pore clogging. I use this at night after my essence and serums. If you have really dry skin you can add a
Few drops of this into your moisturizer. I have combo oily to normal skin so I just use this as my last step and skip moisturizer at night.

Love the hydration my skin gets from this product. I use it mainly in the PM and use a different hydrating product in the day. It's got an oily feel and so I don't use it in the AM because I don't like the results after makeup is applied over it. I am naturally oily and use mattifying products during the day.
