The Ordinary Squalane Cleanser

  • Description & Features

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 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.

Directions of Use: Rub together to warm the product, allowing it to melt into an oil. Massage well onto dry face and rinse with warm water. If irritation occurs, cease use and consult a physician. Use only as directed on unbroken skin. Patch testing prior to use is advised. Keep out of reach of children.

Ingredients: Squalane, Aqua (Water), Coco-Caprylate/Caprate, Glycerin, Sucrose Stearate, Ethyl Macadamiate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Sucrose Laurate, Hydrogenated Starch Hydrolysate, Sucrose Dilaurate, Sucrose Trilaurate, Polyacrylate Crosspolymer-6, Isoceteth-20, Sodium Polyacrylate, Tocopherol, Hydroxymethoxyphenyl Decanone, Trisodium Ethylenediamine Disuccinate, Malic Acid, Ethylhexylglycerin, Chlorphenesin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love - be sure to rub for 15-30 seconds! Love this stuff - but do make sure you follow instructions and, at a moderate pace, rub the product in your palms for 15-30 seconds. I made the mistake of VIGOROUSLY rubbing it in my hands and wondering why it took so long to get change consistency. I then rub it all over my face and do that for 60 SECONDS. Then rinse off with water and I also use a wash cloth as a final gentle removal of it all. I use this in conjuction with the Niacinamide and I haven't looked back. My large pores and pimply forehead are FINALLY gone. I love their products. 10 out of 5 stars! :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from New to me I've only used this a few times, so my score reflects that. I have extremely sensitive skin and am very careful about which products I use. My skin feels soft and clean after use with no breakouts or rashes which is a great sign for me

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVED IT! I have been using The Ordinary products for about 2 years now and have really enjoyed them but was always a little leery of trying this very different kind of cleanser. I decided to take the plunge simply because it is so inexpensive and it wouldn't be that big of a waste if I didn't like it. Well.... I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT! My favourite cleanser by far. It leaves my skin very clean, no residue, make-up gone and it feels so soft afterward. I am hooked and will never go back!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I wasn't too sure about this cleanser at first. It goes on clear and doesn't provide much 'feedback' that you're applying it properly and cleansing thoroughly. You use a small portion, massage it between your fingers until it warms/'melts' and then apply. Then you remove it with water. At first I was cautious that it wouldn't do the trick but it really works SO well! My skin feels so soft after, I don't want to apply other products it feels so great. I gave it 4 stars out of 5 because it doesn't provide as much exfoliation as I would like and would recommend using it with a konjac sponge or another product alongside it. I also found this size bottle pretty small for how frequently I use it, so would recommend purchasing the large bottle if you are familiar iwth it and like it. Otherwise, this size is great for travelling/trying it out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I have had dry skin my whole life, after switching to this cleanser my skin has never felt better! It seems weird at first, since the cleanser doesn't actually get 'soapy', but it removes makeup really well and leaves your skin feeling so soft and smooth. Only thing is I feel like you need to use a decent amount each time, so the bottle runs out pretty quick.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice and gentle - a bit shiny-making This is very much like using a light oil to cleanse your face. It's very moisturizing and I like using it at night, but if I use it in the morning it makes me really shiny throughout the day. I have combination skin and the dry parts love this at night, but the oily parts aren't a fan during the day. So, this is a nighttime thing only for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally a good product! I have always struggled with acne and combo skin. This cleanser makes sense! It doesn't strip away the faces natural oils, it leaves your face feeling moisturized. Just rub it between your fingers for 10/15 sec and then apply to a dry face before washing off. No breakouts since ive started using it. Im on a wait list to buy the larger bottle!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great so far It took me some time to figure out the best time and in what order to incorporate this into my skin care regime. I workout everyday which leaves my with little bumps all over my face. So I use this cleanser to remove my makeup before workouts. It is gentle enough that I can do a second wash afterwards as well.
