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 I really disliked this cleanser at first because I felt like it was leaving an oily film on my skin. I was used to using a balmy cleanser for removing my makeup but I always followed up with a cleanser that left my skin feeling squeaky clean. Unfortunately, that feeling was my skin being stripped and dried out. I’ve always had trouble with dehydrated but oily, acne-probe skin, easy to see why with my cleansing routine. I forced myself to accept the non-dry feeling this cleanser left and in just a short time my skin has become less chaotic and feels much more hydrated and less greasy. It doesn’t cause me breakouts either. So happy to have found a cleanser that makes my skin behave and doesn’t break the bank!

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 5 out of 5 by from This cleanser is phenomenal. It is gentle, has no smell, and removes all makeup very effectively without any feeling of dryness or tightness afterward. It's the perfect prep for the rest of my The Ordinary skincare products. As a bonus, it's inexpensive and you need very little to get the job done. It's my second tube and I will continue to repurchase this. I'm 41 and I have oily skin. This product does such a great job of cleansing thoroughly without causing 'rebound' oiliness as a result of overstripping. Love love this!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is my new favourite product, without a doubt. I have sensitive skin with a very dry forehead but I’m prone to small breakouts on my chin. I started using this and my skin immediately felt moisturized without feeling like there is a film of oil leftover and no breakouts at all. It does take a bit of getting used because it is different from a regular cleanser. Even though the tube is a bit too small I’m still repurchasing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the first product I've used from "The Ordinary". OMG! I love this cleanser!! I was using it incorrectly at first, I was using on a face wet. Then I read the directions, game changer. I love the oily creamy feel on my skin and it removes all of my makeup. My skin is plump, hydrated, smooth and radiant. The tiny pimples that I used to get on my chin are GONE. I will continue to use this amazing product and will try more of "The Ordinary"

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Started using the ordinary products about a month ago. I have rosacea and since using this I have been able to stop using my prescription creams. My skin has never been better and I would highly recommend this product line. So glad to see the cleanser come in a larger bottle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The key with this cleanser is to rub it vigorously between your hands until it suddenly becomes more slippery. I have no idea what chemistry magic is happening with this stuff, but it's pretty cool. I had to get used to the idea of putting cleanser on a dry face, too, but once you see that it transforms into a slippery oil, it makes more sense. I find it does the job while being gentle on my skin. Good stuff!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 4.5 stars, would give it 5 but would like to see the long term effects first. Have been using for a couple weeks now, I was using a toner as well after for the first couple days because I was skeptical about how good a clean it was giving my face, but lo and behold the toner pad had nothing extra on it. My skin feels fresh and supple after using. Great product.
